Frequently Asked Questions
Can I pick up my order in person?
When placing your order, you can indicate whether you will pick up your order or prefer to have it delivered. During the ordering process you will be asked to fill in your personal details and to indicate your preference regarding the day and time you want to pick up your order.
We will respond to your request the same day. Of course, you can also simply call the Magnet Specialist to make an appointment. You can call the Service Desk Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
How do I order magnets?
Once you have found a particular type of magnet, choose the correct size and order quantity. Attention! The prices shown with the order quantities of our magnets state the price per magnet but assume the number of magnets in the respective price tier.
Suppose you can choose from: from 1 piece, 5 pieces, 20 pieces or 50 pieces. The order quantities that are then among the possibilities are limited to the limits of the price scales such as: 4 x 1 piece / 3 x 5 pieces / 2 x 20 pieces and ∞ x 50 pieces. The last category can be ordered an unlimited number of times and in this case in collies of 50 pieces. So 100 pieces are 2 items in the shopping cart. Once you have finished shopping, you will see an overview of your order in your shopping cart and you can make final changes here.
Are the magnets reserved for me once I place them in my shopping cart?
Placing the magnet or magnets in the shopping cart does not mean they are reserved for you. You are only assured of the magnet or magnets once your payment is received.
What do the stock status indications hold and what does this mean for the delivery time?
The status “immediately deliverable” means that the item is in stock and will be shipped on the day (weekdays: Monday to Friday) when the payment is in our bank account before 4pm.
The status “temporarily sold out” means that the item is temporarily sold out. The item can be ordered but has a longer delivery time. Magnet Specialist will inform you of the time frame for delivery and the item will be shipped to you as soon as payment is received and the item is in.
The status “no longer available” means that the item has sold out and is also no longer available.
