5 Returns

Please refer to our Returns Policy for more information about returning products (and related refunds, replacements or repairs).  The Returns Policy is incorporated by reference (which means that it forms part of these Terms and Conditions).

6 Conclusion of sales and availability of stock

  1. Registered customers may place orders for goods, which we may accept or reject. Whether or not we accept an order depends on the availability of goods, correctness of the information relating to the goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by us for the goods.

  2. We will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the goods to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and us come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from us stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. We will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.

  3. Prior to delivery or your collection of the goods, you may cancel an order at any time provided you do so before receiving a dispatch or delivery notice. After delivery or your collection of the goods, you may return the goods only in accordance with the Returns Policy.

  4. You acknowledge that stock of all goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. In the case of goods for sale by use, we will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, we will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such goods.

  5. In the case of goods for sale by a third party seller, we rely on inventory information supplied by the relevant third party seller and we accordingly bear no liability for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to it. Consequently, should you order any goods from a third party seller which are in fact sold-out, any resulting dispute should be resolved between you and the relevant third party seller, your respective rights and obligations being as set out in these terms and conditions.

7 Payment 

We are committed to providing secure online payment facilities. All transactions are encrypted using appropriate encryption technology.

Whether the goods are for sale by us or a third party seller, payment can be made for goods via – 

  • debit card;

  • credit card: where payment is made by credit card, we may require additional information in order to authorise and/or verify the validity of payment. In such cases we are entitled to withhold delivery until such time as the additional information is received by us and authorisation is obtained by us for the amounts. If we do not receive authorisation your order for the goods will be cancelled. You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying the goods. You also warrant that your credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the services used on the website;

  • direct bank deposit or electronic funds transfer: if you pay via direct bank deposit or electronic funds transfer, payment must be made within 2 (two) days of placing your order. We will not accept your order if payment has not been received; and

  • Instant EFT.

Once you have selected your payment method (save for direct bank deposit), you will be directed to a link to a secure site for payment of the applicable purchase price for the goods.

8 Delivery of goods 

  1. We offer 2 (two) methods of delivery of goods to you. You may elect delivery; or self-collection.

  2. Where we accept your order, we will deliver the goods to you as soon as reasonably possible, but no later than 10 (ten) days of receipt of your payment (“Delivery Period”). We will notify you if we are unable to deliver the goods during the Delivery Period. You may then, within 5 (five) days of receiving such notification elect whether or not to cancel your order for the goods. If you elect to cancel your order, we will reimburse you for the purchase price.

  3. Our obligation to deliver a product to you is fulfilled when we deliver the product to the physical address nominated by you for delivery of the order. We are not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of a product, after the product has been delivered to the physical address nominated by you.
