These terms and conditions ("these Terms") apply to the access and use of this website and such other websites owned, operated and/or controlled by Chow Sang Sang Holdings International Limited and/or its subsidiaries from time to time (each a "Site"). References to "the Group" shall mean Chow Sang Sang Holdings International Limited and its subsidiaries. References to "we", "us" and "the Company" herein shall mean the relevant company within the Group that owns, operates and/or control the relevant Site.
Nothing in these Terms shall be construed as implying any relationship of partnership, collaboration or employment between you and us. It does not entitle you to hold out yourself as our representative.

2. Eligibility to purchase
In order to make purchases in the Site, you will be required to provide your personal details. In particular, you must provide your real name, phone number, email address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, you may be required to provide billing and payment details. When you submit the billing and payment details, you represent, warrant and undertake that they are valid and correct and that you are the person referred to in the information provided.
In order to make purchases in the Site, you must meet our conditions of eligibility:
- Be aged 18 years of age or over.
- Be in possession of a bank account opened in a licensed bank; an AlipayHK account or a WeChat Pay HK account.
The Site is for your personal use only. You may not purchase goods from the Site for reselling purposes or commercial exploitation.
3. Order process
All orders that you place in the Site will be subject to acceptance in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
When you place an order in the Site we shall email you an acknowledgement detailing the product you have ordered. This email is not an order acceptance from Chow Sang Sang, and does not create any contract between you and us. You may cancel the order placed by you before the issuance of an Acceptance Email (defined below).
All orders are subject to stock availability, order price and payment status confirmation. No contract of sale and purchase of goods exists between you and Chow Sang Sang until we have received and accepted your order and we send you an email ("Acceptance Email") to confirm. Once we send you an Acceptance Email, there is a binding legal contract between you and us. The contract shall be deemed to be entered into in Hong Kong.
Chow Sang Sang reserves the right not to accept an order for any reason at its sole discretion. Such reasons include, but are not limited to, any of the following:
- The payment cannot be settled in 15 minutes after placing order for bank transfer payment settlement.
- The payment cannot be settled immediately during order placement for AlipayHK and WeChat Pay HK payment settlement.
- The product you ordered is out of stock, or is withdrawn.
- The identification of an error within the product information, including price or promotion.
- You do not meet the eligibility criteria set out in Clause 2 above.
If there is any problem with your order, our Customer Service team will try to contact you as soon as possible.
4. Product availability/Information
Products featured on the Site have been carefully selected for sale on the Site. Once an item is sold out it will be taken off the Site at the earliest opportunity. Prices of products may change from time to time. Goods are subject to availability. As there is a delay between the time when your order is placed and the time when the order is accepted, the stock position relating to particular items may change. If an item you have ordered becomes out of stock before the issuance of the Acceptance Email we shall notify you as soon as possible and we shall refund to you the payment you have made for the out of stock item. We shall not be obliged to make any additional payment for disappointment suffered.
We endeavour to be as accurate and complete as possible in relation to product description and the content. However, we do not warrant that product description or any content is accurate, complete, current, or error-free. We reserve the right to refuse to accept your order or cancel the contract (if any) between you and Chow Sang Sang if any of the products you have ordered were listed in the Site at an incorrect price due to typographical error. In such event, we shall refund to you the payment you have made for the ordered product.
You are expressly reminded that the colour, textures or finishes, size, aspect and scale of the display of a product may vary depending on the type of computer monitor you use and its settings. We are therefore unable to guarantee that the product images are accurate representation of the actual merchandise. Please refer to Clause 9 if you are unhappy with your purchase.
All products in the Site will be charged in Hong Kong Dollars (HKD) and other currencies displayed are for reference only.
Prices displayed in the Site at the time your order is accepted will be honoured except when the prices are incorrect due to typographical error. Whilst we use our best endeavours to ensure that all prices appearing in the Site are accurate, we do not guarantee that they are error-free and reserve our right to rectify any errors. If we discover that any product that you have ordered has been listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error at the time you placed the order, we will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming or cancelling your order if we do not elect to refuse to accept the order or to cancel the contract (as the case may be). If we are unable to contact you, we will refuse to accept the order or cancel the contract (as the case may be).
Pricing for gold bar:
- For gold bar with the pricing method "Priced by Weight", the final amount is calculated based on the following formula: Product Weight (in tael) x Gold Bar Sell Price per Tael - The Gold Bar Sell Price per Tael indicated under "Gold Price" are subject to change without notice. For reference, 1 tael = 37.429g = 1.2033oz
You must settle the payable amount of the order via bank transfer to the bank account specified by us in 15 minutes after placing order; or settle payable amount immediately during order placement via AlipayHK and WeChat Pay HK.
If you cannot settle the payable amount of the order in designated time window, we shall be entitled to refuse to accept your order.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your purchase and payment secure, but we will not be liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site. The Site uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to provide encryption of personal information.
7. In-store collections
We shall deliver the goods you ordered (the order of which has been accepted by us) ("the Merchandise") to the selected Chow Sang Sang store in Hong Kong. You will not be able to collect the Merchandise unless the ‘Ready for Collection’ email and a valid photo ID of the collector are presented.
Chow Sang Sang insures each Merchandise during the time it is in transit until it is collected. We require a signature for any goods collected, at which point the risk of loss of the Merchandise passes to you.
8. Returns and exchanges
Gold bar is non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
9. Prohibitions and failure to comply
Chow Sang Sang reserves the right to terminate any eShop account at its sole discretion. We may take action against you for activities including, but not limited to:

- Using any technology to attempt to hide the use of multiple accounts or disrupt any of our Services in any way.
