Terms & Conditions
APE Distribution is the trading arm of Quoll Digital Medical P/L. www.apedistribution.com.au, (the “Site”) is an information and shopping website where you can gain information, browse, select and order products from APE Distribution (ABN 65 610 154 848) (“APE Distribution”, “us” or “we”). Your access to and use of the Site, including your order of Products through the Site, is governed by these terms and conditions.
Placing an order for products
You may order Products by selecting and submitting your order through the Site in accordance with these terms and conditions. Any order placed through this Site for a Product is an offer by you to purchase the particular Product for the price notified (including the delivery and other charges and taxes) at the time you place the order. We may ask you to provide additional details or require you to confirm your details to enable us to process any orders placed through the Site. You agree to provide us with current, complete and accurate details when asked to do so by the Site.
Acceptance or rejection of an order
In certain circumstances, we may need to reject your order. This may happen where the requested Product is not available or if there is an error in the price or the product description posted on the Site. Each order placed for Products through the Site that we accept results in a separate binding agreement between you and us for the supply of those Products. For each order accepted by us, we will:
- supply the Products in that order to you in accordance with these terms and conditions; and
- provide you with an email confirmation of that order.
If we reject an order placed through the Site, then we will endeavour to notify you of that rejection at the time you place the order or within a reasonable time after you submit your order.
If we determine that we do not have a particular Product in your order in stock, then we will use reasonable endeavours for 30 days to order the relevant Product (“Back Ordered Products”). In this instance, we will notify you of the relevant Back Ordered Products and the anticipated delivery date. Our Back Order Policy is incorporated into these terms and conditions. You can view our Back Order Policy here.
Minimum and maximum amounts in each order
The minimum purchase amount for each order is $27.00 excluding the Delivery Fee. If specified on the Site for a particular Product, you may only obtain up to the maximum amount of that Product (if any) specified on our Site.
Delivery of products
We will only deliver Products ordered through the Site to a location where we provide delivery services. You may obtain further information on the Site about our delivery timeframes and how we deliver Products. You agree to comply with certain delivery requirements specified below and such other requirements that we notify you when you place your order through the Site. All deliveries will be made in compliance with the conditions and policies as outlined by Australia Post.
Risk and title
Risk and title to the Products passes to you on the date and time of delivery to the Delivery Address.
Cancelling an order
We may cancel any part of an order (including any orders that we have accepted) without any liability to you for that cancellation at any time if:
- the Products in that order are not available; or
- there is an error in the price or the product description posted on the Site for the Product in that order; or
- that we reasonably believe your order has been placed in breach of these terms and conditions.
If we do so, then we will endeavour to provide you with reasonable notice of that cancellation, and will not charge you for the cancelled order.
You may cancel an order (whether it is accepted by us or not) by contacting Customer Service during Standard Business Hours at any time prior to the dispatch of that order. Once the order has been dispatched for delivery to you, then you may return the relevant Products in accordance with these terms and conditions.
Fees and charges
We will charge you, and you agree to pay, the purchase price of each Product that is ordered, the delivery fee for your order that we notify to you when you place your order (refer to Shipping and Delivery Policy) and any other fees and charges set out in these terms and conditions. All fees and charges identified in these terms and conditions and all prices for the Products include GST where applicable. The purchase price of each Product is shown on the product list on the Site at the time you place your order. The purchase price of a Product on the Site may not be the same or correspond to the prices in any retail stores for the same Product and we are not obliged to match any prices. Prices for Products may change from time to time and we do not provide any notice of these changes. Subject to these terms and conditions (and in particular, our Online Back Orders Policy), once we have accepted your order, we will not change any prices that apply to the Products in that order.
If you cancel an order then:
- subject to (b), we will refund any amounts paid by you for that cancelled order;
- we will not refund the Delivery Fees where the Products in your cancelled order have been dispatched for delivery.
You may pay the fees and charges for an accepted order using the following credit cards:
other payment methods:
If we are unable to successfully process your credit card or PayPal payment for your order that is accepted by us, then we may cancel your order. If you choose to pay by credit card or PayPal, you authorise us to debit the amount that is payable for an accepted order from your nominated credit card or PayPal account. You must not pay, or attempt to pay, for Products through any fraudulent or unlawful means. We will provide you with a receipt at time of delivery which specifies the total fees and charges for the Products in the order.
Damaged products and returns
You must check any Product delivered to you to determine if it is damaged. If a Product is damaged on delivery, then you should refuse to take receipt of that Product and notify us through our Customer Service immediately. If you notice damage to a Product after delivery, and wish to return the Product, you may return the Product to us in accordance with our Returns Policy, which is incorporated into these terms and conditions. You can view our Returns Policy by clicking here. You must provide us with the invoice we issued to you for your order to return any Products. If you fail to do so, then we may not provide you with a remedy. We will only refund the delivery fee if the Products are determined to be faulty after assessment under our Returns Policy, and the fault did not arise through any misuse, abnormal use or negligent use of the Products.
Before you return the Product to us, we strongly recommend that you read the instruction manual. We are of course available to help you as well and you may contact us via email or call us on 1300 727 906.
Our Returns Policy is incorporated into these terms and conditions. You can view our Returns Policy here. You must provide us with the invoice we issued to you for your order to make a claim under this clause. If you fail to do so, then we may not provide you with a refund.

Subject to clause 13.3, we exclude all implied terms and warranties whether statutory or otherwise, relating to the Site or the subject matter of this agreement. You acknowledge that the Site is provided “as is” and that we do not make any warranty or representation as to the suitability of the Site or a Product for any purpose. Subject to clause 14.3, we will not be liable to you for indirect and consequential loss (including without limitation for loss of revenue, loss of profits, failure to realise expected profits or savings and any other commercial or economic loss of any kind) or loss or corruption of data, in contract, tort, under any statute or otherwise (including negligence) arising from or connected to this agreement. Where any law implies in this agreement any term, and that law voids or prohibits provisions which exclude or modify the operation of such term, then the term is taken to be included in this agreement. However, our liability for breach of such term will be, if permitted by law, limited to one of the following remedies (at our option):
- in the case of goods: the replacement of the goods, the supply of equivalent goods, the repair of the goods; the payment of the cost of replacing the goods (or of acquiring equivalent goods), or the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired.
Our liability to you for loss or damage of any kind arising out of this agreement or in connection with the relationship established by it is reduced to the extent (if any) that you cause or contribute to the loss or damage. This reduction applies whether our liability is in contract, tort (including negligence), under any statute or otherwise. Nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit or exclude any liability that cannot be excluded by law.
We may immediately suspend, terminate or limit your access to and use of the Site and (where relevant) your account if you breach these terms and conditions and:
- the breach cannot be remedied; or
- you fail to the remedy the breach within 10 days of our notice to you of that breach; or
- if there is an emergency.
We may stop making the Site (or any part of it) available without prior notice. If so, any orders that we have accepted will not be affected by this unless the Products that have been ordered are no longer available or we are prevented from supplying the Products, in which case, we will notify you and will refund to you all valid payments received by us for those Products.
Changes to these terms and conditions
For future orders, these terms may be different and so we recommend that you read these terms carefully each time you agree to them during the ordering process. We will not change any terms and conditions for an existing order that has been accepted by us, the terms and conditions that will apply to the order, are the terms and conditions that applied at the time you placed your order.
