IS THE PRICING ON THE WEBSITE CURRENT? Yes, the pricing is current on the website.
DO I GET A TRADE DISCOUNT? No. We do not have trade or retail price lists, the prices shown on the website are the prices you will be charged.
DO I GET A DISCOUNT IF I PURCHASE IN BULK? WHAT IS YOUR DISCOUNT PROCEDURE? First Price Break – 15% discount on any one item, ordered at any one time amounting to more than $900 plus GST. Second Price Break – 20% discount on any one item, ordered at any one time amounting to more than $2500 plus GST, but is not available on all items. This discount is subject to assessment at the time of order. To Clarify the above, a product with $10.00 +GST may qualify for a discount on an order of 90 units and receive a 15% discount, and at 250 units, a 20% discount. To receive the discounts, a single order much reach the price break quantity, not a quantity order built up over a period. The discount is also based on each line item. E.g. 90 items @ $10.00+GST may qualify for the 15% discount but 1 different item on the same order would not receive the discount. This discount structure may not apply to all items in our catalogue and only applied if payment is made the 20th of the month following invoice date.

HOW CAN I IDENTNIFY A PHISING EMAIL THAT IS NOT SENT FROM CO-MAC? There are several things you can check, firstly check the email address this has come from, most organizations will have their own email domain and company account, ours would always end in @comac.co.nz. If the email is poorly written with unusual phrases and grammatical errors this could be an indication of a scam. If it looks as though there are suspicious attachments or links you would need to hover over these without clicking, if these are sending you to any other site unrelated to Co-Mac it would be a scam.
