(a) these Terms and Conditions;

(b) the Sendle general Terms and Conditions

Unless otherwise stated in these Terms and Conditions, if there's any inconsistency between any of the above documents, the earlier mentioned document will take precedence to the extent of that inconsistency.

4.1 Levelling up: Once you have reached the minimum spend for your Savings Level anytime within a 4-week spending period, Sendle will move you up to the next Savings Level. Customers can move higher than one Savings Level at a time if their minimum spend reaches a higher Savings Level minimum.

4.5 Sendle will endeavour to notify you via email and within the Sendle dashboard if you have levelled up, as well as if you have not met the minimum spend requirement within your 4-week spending period.
