Conclusion of the contract with TROTEC® in the regular purchase.

The prospective buyer has the option of placing the desired item(s) in the virtual shopping basket by clicking on the corresponding button. The items collected in the virtual shopping basket can be called up at any time by clicking on the shopping basket symbol. In the shopping basket view, you can then view the items, change their quantity or delete them from the shopping basket. The system then guides you through the further steps of the ordering process, giving you instructions along the way. Before completing the order, it is possible to change the order contents, correct or delete data at any time. To do so, please use the instructions for changing or the back button of the browser. Only by the last step of the ordering process, clicking on the order button, do you make the declaration of intent to purchase the item at the specified price. This makes your declaration of intent binding and irrevocable (see below for your right of revocation). The declaration of intent is made by pressing the "Pay now" button at the end of the ordering process. The confirmation of receipt of your order together with the acceptance of the order by TROTEC® takes place immediately after being sent in text form by automated email.
