At the customer service, it is possible to pay by credit or debit card and in cash.

Delivery of standards
If it has not been agreed otherwise, the ordered standards are delivered to the customer after payment for the standards.
By ordering electronic standards, the standards in PDF format will be made available to you on our website in the “My account” environment. You need to log in to download the ordered standards.
By ordering standards on paper, you will have the option to personally collect the standards at the customer service of the Estonian Centre for Standardisation or we will deliver the standards through Eesti Post. In the latter case, postage of 0,96 EUR for domestic parcels, 4,15 EUR for parcels within Europe and 6,39 EUR for parcels to other countries will be added to each ordered standard on paper. In case you do not order paper standards through the shopping cart, we ask you to specify in the order how you wish to have the ordered standards delivered. Failing this, we will assume you wish the standards to be delivered by post.
About refunding standards
If the acquired standard has defects, you will have the right to submit a complaint to the Estonian Centre for Standardisation, advisably within three days but not later than within two years from the date of delivery of the standard. The complaint must be submitted immediately but not later than within two months of discovering the defect. In order to make it easier to solve later problems, the customer should definitely retain the purchase invoice, which proves that the standard was bought from the Centre for Standardisation. Without a document attesting sale, the Centre for Standardisation may leave the problem unsolved.
