Prices on Samyata are set by each Merchant, and in most cases, You’ll pay the same amount as what You’d pay in-store. Merchant's prices (and the associated taxes and other fees the Merchant charges) may vary based on current in-store or in-warehouse item prices and availability.

Rather, title for each item You purchase will pass directly from the Merchant to You, either in the Merchant’s store at the point of sale when any such items are purchased, regardless of whether Bodaty facilitates the delivery of the purchased items through a personal shopper. Any item replacement or other protection afforded to You by Bodaty or the Merchant for damage or loss that occurs in transit is offered as a matter of customer service only and is not intended to alter the transfer of title for items. State and local sales tax will be calculated via third party providers based on the Merchant and information provided by You and will be communicated to You.
