Terms of Sale


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

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.

In order to facilitate the use of the website by visitors who are not familiar with the euro, you have the possibility to display prices in other currencies. Prices are then indicative. The update of the exchange rate is daily (02:30, Paris time), prices in foreign currency can vary from a few cents from one day to another.

You can make your purchases directly in foreign currency but if you want a more precise exchange rate, we recommend using the display in euros during the validation of your order and payment.

.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.
