Net Terms is a specific type of trade credit that allows customers to pay after delivery. Customers should pay in full within certain days of the date when the goods are dispatched according to the approved credit account. It can help businesses to manage budget & expenditure better.
FS now offers standard Net 30 term for approved businesses. Other payment terms such as Net 15, Net 45, etc, are also available per your business requests.
All the Credit orders must be paid before the due date. If the customer has a reason of force majeure and informed FS in the written notice before the due date, the payment can be deferred to 15 calendar days after the due date. If the customer fails to make any payment within 15 calendar days after due date without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the FS, FS shall limit the customer's credit and be entitled to charge customer interest at the rate of one percent (1%) per month above base rate from time to time, until payment in full is made (a part of a month is treated as a full month for the purpose of calculating interest).
After the customer receives the goods, if an after-sales issue is caused by FS, the customer is allowed to suspend the payment until the customer receives the repaired or replaced product. If the after-sales issue is caused by the customer, the customer cannot refuse to pay for the order.
If a Credit order is to be cancelled, please inform your account manager in advance in written notice. If the order cancellation is caused by the customer, and the customer has not formally stated and negotiated with FS in advance, the order cannot be cancelled.
