Shop: how-to-use

In our Shop, you can browse our products listing - displaying prices with and without VAT and other information, put the products you decide to choose into the virtual cart, check what's in the cart and its updated value, choose shipment and payment options, and finally, if you want to go further, confirm the order.

Products listing

In this page, you can see all available products listed, each one with its prices and details.

For each product, you can access a more detailed description by clicking the image.

To add a product to your cart, first adjust the product's quantity according to your needs and then click "Add to cart". IMPORTANT: in some cases, e.g. for colored records, the "Quantity" field is replaced by a "Choose options" button: in this case, you have to click the button to open a new page, where you can choose one of the options along with the quantity.

After clicking "Add to cart", a little popup will be displayed in the upper-right corner, to confirm that the selected product has been added to the cart. However, in case a wrong quantity or product have been put into the cart, it will be possible to change them from the "View cart" page.

As soon as the first item has been added to the cart, a brief resume of the cart (total items/total amount) and a direct-checkout button will be displayed in the header, on the right side of the main menu section.

Documents

The order confirmation you will receive is not an invoice. Its order number is only an internal reference. We will issue the official invoice (electronic and .pdf) after having checked that your payment has been received.

View cart

Once you have finished adding the products, you can check what's in your cart and a detail of the amounts, by selecting the "Your cart" option in the Shop menu. In its actual state, your cart is nothing but a simple quotation, which you can print or save by clicking the respective icons. Your cart will be kept on our server for 30 days. You can edit the cart anytime by using the little tools located on the right side of each row. By clicking the trash bin icon, you take that product off the cart; by typing the quantity into the "quantity" field and then by clicking the "refresh" icon (circular arrows), you can set a new quantity and recalculate the amount for that specific row, as well as the overall amount. 

Common mistakes

Lacquercut + metalwork: if you are asking us to press a new release, and not a repress, you have to order the lacquercut and the metalwork along with the records and the rest (see below about possible mistakes in quantities). The lacquercut is the cutting process of your master into the lacquerdisc, and the metalwork is their metallizing process plus the electroplating of negative, mother and stamper out of it.

Don't forget that lacquercut's and metalwork's prices are "prices per side", so e.g. if you have to release a double-sided LP, you need to order 2x lacquercuts, and 2x metalworks, and e.g. you have to release a single-sided EP, you need to order 1x lacquercut and 1x metalwork.

As for the Labelset quantity, the price is per set of 500 pairs, hence the quantity for all kind of records up to 500 copies is: 1 pc. = 500 A + 500 B labels.

Checkout

If you're happy with what you have in the cart, you can proceed with the checkout. This is possible from the "Checkout" submenu, by clicking the cart icon in the "View cart" page, or from the button in the site's header.

The checkout procedure will take the content of the cart, add the shipping costs and - if any and the bank fees (only if selected payment form is Paypal).

After having reviewed the list of goods, taxes (VAT), shipping costs and fees, you will be asked to agree with the Terms and conditions and click "Finish", to send the final order.

By selecting "Bank" as a payment method, you decide to pay later on with a bank transfer: in this case your order confirmation email will contain all the bank details you need to do the transfer.
