2. Cancellation by Discus.ae

Under some conditions an order may not be possible to fulfill due to unforeseen circumstances and can be subject to cancellation. We reserve the right to cancel or refuse any order for any reason, such as quality control after item inspection, sudden product unavailability, errors in pricing or product information, or due to payment processing issues.

Our Discus.ae team shall contact you if all or part of your order was cancelled or if additional details are required to process your order. If an order was cancelled after your credit card has been charged, the paid amount will be reversed back automatically.



3. Cancellation by Customer

Orders can be cancelled at any point except when the order has already been dispatched from the store. If a payment was made online, a refund can be issued back to the same card/account number used for purchase only within the first 48 hours after the order was placed. Cancellation requests received two days after the order was placed are only eligible for store credit, payments cannot be refunded after the specified period unless the cancellation is initiated by Discus.ae.

Orders which have already been processed or dispatched can not be cancelled. The customer agrees not to dispute the decision made by Discus.ae and accept Discus.ae's decisions to accept or reject a cancellation request.



4. Delivery Policy

Orders are delivered using the Discus.ae vehicles which are equipped to transport live fish, frozen goods, plants, glass content, and care products safely under temperature controlled conditions.

All purchases are subject to product availability and will arrive following our delivery schedule. In case items are unavailable, a representative will contact the enlisted phone number or send an email to the address on file to notify. 

All our live stocks are thoroughly tested and quarantined before packing and guaranteed to arrive free of tapeworms or diseases. Any death or illness of live animals after being added to an aquarium cannot be replaced or refunded. If such problems are encountered then it is connected to aquarium conditions or non-compatible tank mates (e.g. mixing with fish or plants from other sources). Fish acclimation to a new aquarium is the sole responsibility of the buyer and not the Discus.ae delivery team.
