Avery Dennison RFID Company Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale
PRICE AND PAYMENT TERMS: All sales are F.O.B. the AVERY DENNISON plant from which the products are shipped.
PURCHASER shall be responsible for freight costs. All prices are subject to change without prior notice; however, prices shall be those in effect on the date of shipment, or as noted on an accepted purchase order. Shipments which are more or less than the actual quantity ordered shall constitute filling the order if such variance does not exceed 10%. AVERY DENNISON may ship a quantity of Products greater than PURCHASER’s order amount, to compensate for expected non-functioning products present in a roll. PURCHASER shall not be required to pay for any such additional Products; however, such additional amount shall not constitute a variance.
The net amount of invoice shall be payable in full within 30 days following the date of invoice. Invoices paid within 10 days of invoice are subject to a 1% discount. Invoices not paid within 30 days of due date shall thereafter bear monthly service charges at the rate of 1% per month on the unpaid balance until paid. If, in AVERY DENNISON’s opinion, PURCHASER’s financial condition does not justify continuance of production or shipment on the terms of payment specified, AVERY DENNISON may require payments in advance. PURCHASER shall pay for any attorneys fees or collections costs incurred by AVERY DENNISON in connection with collecting any unpaid amounts.
The amount of any present or future federal, state, local or other taxes applicable to the sale of products listed herein shall be added to the price and paid by the PURCHASER unless PURCHASER provides AVERY DENNISON with a valid exemption certificate acceptable to AVERY DENNISON and the appropriate taxing authority.
PURCHASER hereby grants AVERY DENNISON a security interest in each product sold hereunder and the proceeds and products thereof, until payment of all funds owing to AVERY DENNISON including, without limitation, the purchase price. PURCHASER agrees to execute any documents as AVERY DENNISON requests to perfect such security interest.
SHIPMENT AND TRANSPORTATION TERMS: AVERY DENNISON reserves the right to specify routing of shipments. AVERY DENNISON shall attempt to ship within the time specified on AVERY DENNISON’s Sales Order, if indicated, and if not, then within a reasonable time. PURCHASER acknowledges that no claim may be made for delays in shipment. Unless specified in AVERY DENNISON’s Sales Order, freight charges shall be prepaid and billed. If PURCHASER specifies a carrier that is not an AVERY DENNISON approved carrier, the shipment will be made on a “Freight Collect” basis.
TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS: Title and risk of loss for all products shall pass to PURCHASER upon delivery by AVERY DENNISON to a common carrier, regardless of the freight terms or method of payment for transportation charges. PURCHASER is responsible for filing all loss or damage claims with the carrier.
TRANSIT DAMAGE CLAIM PROCEDURE:
- It is the responsibility of PURCHASER to receive the entire shipment as tendered and enter a claim with the carrier if any portion is missing or damaged upon delivery.
- If there is any loss or damage at the time of delivery, it is essential to note such loss or damage on the delivery receipt. Within 15 days of receipt of the shipment any concealed damage should be reported to the delivering carrier. Retaining the entire package is necessary until after a concealed damage inspection report is issued by the carrier.
- Speed is of utmost importance! Prompt inspection, as well as prompt filing, of the claim with all necessary documents will facilitate fast settlement. All claims must be accompanied by the following documents:
- Original paid freight bill.
- Certified copy or original bill of lading.
- Duplicate of invoice covering shipment.
- Duplicate of destination inspection report if available, or duplicate of delivery receipt noting shortage or damage.

- Contact your Sales Representative or our Customer Claims Department if PURCHASER, for any reason, encounters difficulty obtaining payment of a valid claim from a carrier.
