Terms of Sale


The prices of our books are systematically indicated in Euros (€), all taxes included.

L'Ascenseur Végétal is incorporated under the "auto-entreprise" status and we do not manage VAT (for legal reasons, the mention "TVA non applicable, art. 293 B du CGI" will appear on your invoice).

A shipping fee is automatically added (the customer may have to choose between options) to the prices indicated for each book. Rarely, some specific books might be sold "Shipping included", but that would apply to a destination in continental France only (a deduction will apply for other destinations).

Our prices respect French laws on pricing of new books ("Loi Lang 81-766 du 10 août 1981"); please contact us for any error or discrepancy you may have found.


.Acceptance of Terms.

The customers declare that they have read our Terms of Sale and accepted them before ordering. Hence, validation of your order signifies your acceptance of these terms.



All books listed as available on L'Ascenseur Végétal's website are in stock but, despite our care, an error may occur. If a book purchased and paid for is in fact unavailable, the customer will not be entitled to obtain from L'Ascenseur Végétal that they fulfill the order. If the book can be obtained, you will be notified of delivery time and possible modification of pricing. If we cannot fulfill the order, the order will be cancelled and the customer will receive a full refund.

Some titles may be listed and sold as "pre-sales". In such cases, the date of availability will be notified in the book's description, and orders will not be shipped prior to that date.


.Shipping & Returns.

See the "Shipping" page.



Payment is processed directly on the website using PayPal (by default) or a Credit / Debit Card (click on "Do not have a PayPal account ?" when prompted to connect to PayPal). In some cases, it is also possible to pay by check or bank transfer (BIC/IBAN); but you would have to first contact us, and all fees and costs incurred for trans-national transactions will be charged to the customer.
