Collection of Sales Tax

We do not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to tax, unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year, reporting all taxable purchases that were not taxed, and paying tax on those purchases. Details of how to file these returns may be found on the websites of your respective taxing authorities.

Typographical Errors - If a product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for a product listed at the incorrect price. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, Chopa shall issue a refund to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
