Under these circumstances the customer would be refunded for all and any outstanding products not yet delivered.

4.3.      While we try and ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or canceling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
4.4.      We are under no obligation to provide the Product(s) to you at an incorrect price, even after we have sent you an acknowledgement of your Order, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

5.1.      The description of the Goods has been given by way of identification only and the use of such description shall not constitute a sale by description.
5.2.      Notwithstanding that a sample of the Goods may have been exhibited to and inspected by the Buyer, it is hereby declared that such sample was so exhibited and inspected solely to enable the Buyer to judge for itself the quality of the bulk and not so as to constitute a sale by sample.

5.7.      Upon receipt of your Order you will be asked to sign for the goods received in good condition. If the package does not appear to be in good condition then please refuse the delivery, but sign for the package as "DAMAGED".
