We deliver to all countries that are listed in our delivery conditions . Neodymium magnets are not intended for sale/export to the United States of America, Canada or Japan.

- Prepayment to our account in Switzerland
We will send you our account details via e-mail with the order confirmation. As soon as we receive your payment, we will ship you the merchandise.
We will send you an invoice and a pay-in slip with the delivery. The invoice amount is payable without deductions within 14 days (private customers) or 30 days (business customers). We reserve the right to request pre-payment when it comes to first-time or large-value orders. We will then send you an invoice for pre-payment. This will also be enforced in case of larger outstanding balances. In certain cases, for justifiable reasons, such as a credit check, to reduce credit and default risks, to combat abuse or collect outstanding bills, we transmit your data to a credit information institute and receive the necessary data from the providers. Please note our data privacy statement.

Default of payment
If a customer does not fulfil their payment obligation in full or in part, Webcraft AG can suspend further product deliveries to this customer.
For a second demand note, Webcraft AG can collect 20.00 CHF as reimbursement for expenses. After unsuccessful demand notes, the invoice amounts can be assigned to a debt collection agency, which enforces the outstanding amounts in their name and at their own expense and can collect additional administrative fees.
Please use our Shop www.supermagnete.de and consult the AGB found there.
If an order requires pre-payment and the invoice is not paid within ten days after billing, the order becomes void and the ordered quantities cannot be guaranteed in case of a new order or late payment.
Webcraft AG takes no responsibility for damage and injuries caused by improper or careless use of its magnets. By completing your purchase of our magnets, you are confirming that you have read and understand the following warnings. Each shipment will contain a warning sheet that contains the same information.
When orders (or incoming payments via prepayment) are received on a business day before 12:00 o'clock, the shipping occurs on the same day, otherwise the following business day. We cannot accept any responsibility for delayed deliveries.
The minimum order amount is CHF 20.00 (including VAT, not including shipping costs).
Delivery delays that happen during the transport by mail are outside of our sphere of influence and we can therefore not be held liable for it.
All articles that you ordered in our online shop are in stock and can be shipped without delay. If an article is temporarily not in stock, you cannot put it in your cart in the online shop.
Delays with shop articles can therefore only occur due to waiting time for an incoming pre-payment. Depending on the chosen payment method, it can take several days before your payment is credited to our account. The ordered items remain reserved for you during this waiting period and will be shipped within one business day after receipt of payment. You can shorten the waiting time by sending us proof of payment (via e-mail) or by choosing a faster payment method, e.g. card payment.
Our offer will include the approximate production time we will need for the manufacture of your custom order. As a general rule, we will arrange for shipment within this time limit.
Quotations for large quantities indicate an approximate delivery date that can be expected with an immediate order. However, the quoted quantities are not reserved for you at the time of quotation. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that this delivery date is still valid by the time you accept our offer. Only after you accept our offer, we can give you an order confirmation with a definite delivery date. If we cannot keep this delivery date and there is a delay of more than seven days, you can withdraw from our contract without penalty. Further claims for damages due to delayed delivery are not valid.
Customers from Switzerland and Liechtenstein may return products within 14 days of receipt. You may not return custom-made orders.
Please contact us via phone or e-mail before you return products. This enables us to handle the return quicker and avoid misunderstandings.
Please use our original packaging for your return shipment of magnets or a similarly large and sturdy alternative packaging. Place the magnets in the center and use plenty of filling material all around them.

You will receive a refund after we have received the returned products. Postage costs for returned goods are at your expense. Please put enough postage on the package.
Webcraft AG guarantees the functional efficiency of delivered magnets. Products which are damaged during use cannot be returned or exchanged. This includes:
a) for neodymium magnets:
- Flaking and wear of the surface coating:
The surface coating of the magnets can flake or chip during improper use, especially when magnets are allowed to collide. Furthermore, it's possible that a thin layer of coating may be worn away due to constant handling.
- Breaking of the magnets:
Neodymium magnets can break if dropped to the floor or if two magnets collide. Broken magnets are not covered by the Warranty and can therefore not be replaced.
- Loss of magnetism due to high temperatures:
All of our neodymium magnets are - unless otherwise mentioned - heat-resistant up to 80 degrees Celsius. If the magnets are exposed to higher temperatures, they lose a portion of their magnetism.
b) for ferrite magnets:
- Fine cracks and jagged edges:
Ferrite magnets can have fine cracks in the surface and jagged edges. This is a product feature due to its production method (sintering) and not a product flaw.
- Loss of magnetism due to high temperatures:
All our ferrite magnets are heat resistant up to a temperature of 250 Grad Celsius. When exposed to higher temperatures they lose part of their magnetisation.
- Demagnetisation by neodymium magnets:
Strong neodymium magnets can demagnetise or reverse the polarity of ferrite magnets. Those two magnet types have to be stored or transported at a distance of at least 3 cm from each other.
Any further material or legal guarantees, with the exception of those mentioned in § 13, are expressly excluded.
Customer data will be used internally at Webcraft AG only and will not be supplied to third parties.
All obligations are subject to Swiss Law. The place of jurisdiction is Uster, Switzerland.
