Unless agreed between the parties, the payment shall be made at the order.

If a due date has been agreed, no discount shall be granted if the payment is made by anticipation.

Any payment made after the due date mentioned in the invoice shall lead to the payment of penalties, whose amount shall be three times the French legal rate of interest. These penalties are payable without the necessity of a reminder. Moreover, all the recovery costs shall be borne by the purchaser.

In application of the legal provisions, any payment which is overdue by any professional will lead to pay to the creditor a fixed sum of €40, as compensation for recovery costs.  However, if the recovery costs are higher than the amount of this compensation, the creditor may request an additional compensation, upon appropriate justification.

The winegrower shall make the reimbursement by using the same mean of payment than the one used by the client for the initial transaction, unless a different method has been agreed.

In any case, such reimbursement shall not give rise to costs for the client.

If the client has received the bottles at the moment when he exercises his right of withdrawal, the client shall return them to the estate address without undue delay, and in any case, not later than fourteen days after the date he notified his intention to exercise his right of withdrawal.
