Prices, taxes, fees
We aim to provide our customers with competitive prices on the products we offer. Prior to submitting your order you will have the opportunity to review product prices and any applicable sales tax, shipping, and handling charges. Prices are exclusive of, and Customer shall pay, all taxes, duties, levies or fees, or other similar charges imposed on HP or on the Customer by any taxing authority (other than taxes imposed on HP's income) related to Customer's order.
If you feel your order should be tax exempt you must provide a valid tax exempt certificate—other than a resale certificate—at the time you place the order. HP.com sales are intended for personal use and not for resale so we do not accept resale certificates. Please review the detailed instructions regarding submittal of valid acceptable certificates.
For orders shipped to California, effective January 1, 2005, we are required to collect a recycling fee on qualifying products.
Notify HP.com promptly should you believe your order has a pricing error.
HP.com reserves the right to change prices at any time. Should we lower the price of the product you purchased, you may call 1 (888) 999-4747 within 21 days of delivery date to request a credit for the difference between the price you paid and the current HP.com selling price. This excludes mail-in rebates, which are not part of this price protection.
Despite our best efforts, items on our web site may, on rare occasion, be mispriced. If an item's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and ship you the item. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Products and support acquired by Customer under these Terms are solely for Customer's personal use and not for immediate resale or sub-licensing.
Payment and financing
We accept Discover Network, Visa, MasterCard, American Express credit cards, Bill Me Later®, PayPal Express Checkout, hpdirect.com Preferred Account, and HP.com gift cards.
Order acceptance and cancellation
HP.com reserves the right to decline or cancel orders at any time. Notification is via email to the email address you provided when submitting your order. We assume no responsibility for issues resulting from such declines, cancellations, or email notification failure. Order costs will be charged to your account upon acceptance.
HP.com begins processing accepted orders immediately and is therefore unable to accept order cancellation requests once you have received an order confirmation. If an order is processed in error, contact our customer service immediately at 1 (888) 999-4747 for instructions.
For custom-built PC's the factory receives your order as soon as it is approved. Since the PC is custom built, your order can not be changed or modified once the order has been submitted/approved. If however an order is processed in error, contact our customer service immediately at 1 (888) 999-4747 for instructions.
