Terms & Conditions


Prices, Terms Of Shipping & Handling

All prices in our magazine and in the web shop are displayed in Euro and include VAT (value-added tax, at present 19%). In addition we charge you the costs for shipping & handling and cod (where applicable).

Payment methods we accept:

COD (cash on delivery)

COD works like this: we send out the order and you pay your postman on your doorstep at the time of delivery. Unfortunately, this method of payment means additional costs for us. Hence we have to charge EUR 9,95 COD-charges in addition to the above mentioned shipping & handling fees. You will also need to pay the locally applicable payment-slip charge levied by your post office! For technical reasons, the German postal service cannot effect cash-on-delivery consignments to all countries. Take a look at the table below to see the countries where COD payment is possible.


PayPal is the easy and safe way to pay at EMP. In addition, payments are received very quickly so that orders can be processed faster. To able to use this payment service, you will first need to register with PayPal (www.paypal.com). Registration is free of charge.

Credit Card (VISA, Euro/Mastercard, ) - ONLY IN GREENLAND

In case you decide to pay by Credit Card please indicate your credit card number as well as the date of expiry of your Credit Card on the order form. Apart from shipping & handling no further costs will arise. We will charge your credit card account when your order is ready for shipping in our warehouse.

Advanced Payment by Bank Transfer
(available for countries that are using the EURO as a single currency):

After receipt of your order, we will send you an order confirmation and a payment advice slip (by email if possible, so you have the information quicker). Once you receive this information, please use the provided information so that you can transfer the outstanding balance onto the bank account noted on your order confirmation. We especially need the order number and your name with the payment so that we can quickly attach the payment to the order. After we receive payment, we will process your order and send it out to you. Should you send too much money to us by mistake, we will be sure to refund you the difference as soon as possible. We do not charge you anything extra for this payment method. You will only pay for your ordered items plus postage and packaging.
Important: Please DO NOT send us bank notes or cheques by mail.


Deliveries within the European Union (EU/EEC)

All prices in our magazine and in the web shop are displayed in Euro and include VAT (value-added tax, at present 19%). This means the prices are valid the way they are displayed. In addition we charge you the costs for shipping & handling and cod (where applicable).

Deliveries outside the European Union EU / non EEC Countries

The prices stated in the magazine will be charged less the applicable rate of VAT in Germany (currently 19%) to the costs for shipping and packaging, and the cash-on-delivery fee where applicable. You will then still need to pay the duties and import sales tax applicable in your country.

For a better understanding we have summarized all arising costs for shipping & handling depending on the method of payment in the following chart:

If you place an order as a guest, we will request the necessary data to be able to process the order. Alternatively, you can provide your details via PayPal or Amazon Pay. As a guest, you will still be able to benefit from our international customer service.

Alternatively, you can create a customer account or log in to your customer account as a registered user. You must then choose a payment method. On the Review Order page, you will see the details you have entered once again.

You only commit to placing the order when you click on the ‘Place order’ button. Immediately after the order is placed, we will send you an order confirmation by email.
