My Account - Credit Types and Use
Your "My Account" interface kept with FactoryFast.com.au may be linked with certain types of credit for use on the FactoryFast.com.au website. You may only use this credit as defined in these Terms and Conditions. There are three (3) different types of credit:
1. "Store Credit"
Subject to our discretion, FactoryFast.com.au may issue you with "Store Credit" periodically. Store Credit may only be used towards the purchase of products listed on the FactoryFast.com.au website. One (1) Factory Fund Store Credit is equal to one (1) dollar, for the purposes of product purchases on the FactoryFast.com.au website. Store Credit has no value anywhere else except the FactoryFast.com.au website and cannot be redeemed from FactoryFast.com.au for real money.
When you place an order, you may elect to apply any Store Credit in your "My Account" towards your purchase. In the event that you have more Store Credit than is required for the purchase, your remaining Store Credit will be reserved in your "My Account" for future purchases. In the event you do not have enough Store Credit for the full purchase price of your order, your Store Credit will all be applied to your purchase and you will need to apply other credits or another payment type (as listed above in "Methods of Payment, and Payment Processing") to satisfy the remaining balance of your order.
Subject to FactoryFast.com.au's discretion, we may periodically issue you with discount coupons. These coupons may only be used towards the purchase of the products listed, from time to time, on the FactoryFast.com.au website. Coupons have no value anywhere else except the FactoryFast.com.au website and cannot be redeemed from FactoryFast.com.au for real money. Coupons are subject to both these Terms and Conditions, and the Terms and Conditions listed on the coupon itself, including but not limited to the discount amount, expiration date, and purchase restrictions. FactoryFast.com.au reserves the right to interpret the Terms and Conditions of an individual coupon and apply it in the manner we best see fit.
When you place an order with a coupon, the coupon discount is first applied to the price of your order. At that point, there may be a remaining balance to be satisfied. You may elect to apply any Store Credit in your "My Account" towards the purchase, (as described above in the section entitled "Store Credit"). In the event you do not have enough Store Credit for the full purchase price of your order, your Store Credit will all be applied to the order and you will need to apply other credits or another payment type (as listed above in "Methods of Payment, and Payment Processing") to satisfy the remaining balance of your order.
