GOODS AND PRICING
Goods subject to availability: All goods displayed on our website are subject to availability. If any goods you ordered are not immediately available or are not available at all, we will let you know as soon as possible. Goods are only available for delivery in South Africa.
Price: The stated prices on our website are in South African Rand and are only valid and effective in South Africa.
Display: We will use our best efforts to accurately display the goods, specifically regarding their colour, description and price. Please remember however that the way you see the goods is also dependent on the device that you are using to access our websites or apps. We cannot guarantee that the goods you receive will look exactly as you have seen it.
Order completion: We will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the goods to you, or allowing you to collect it. Only at that point will your order be complete and 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 amounts already paid. Adding goods to a wish list or placing it in an online shopping cart/bag without completing the purchase process (“checking out”) does not constitute a valid order, so we may remove the goods from your online bag/cart if stock is no longer available and change the price of the goods without notice to you. You cannot hold us or any third party seller liable if the goods are no longer available, or the price has changed when you check out or try to check out at a later stage.
Order cancellation by us: We reserve the right to not process an order or to cancel an existing order (partially or completely):
If you have gone under debt review before your order is fulfilled;
If, on any of our websites or apps, we suspect that you have, or have tried to: abuse the website/app; intercept data; commit fraud; hack into our systems; or create multiple user profiles to take advantage of a promotion or other offer intended by us to be used once-off by you. We will also be entitled to blacklist you on our database, delete your profile and suspend or terminate your access to our websites and apps (in which case we accept no liability which may arise); and
If there has been an error. Errors include system errors, the goods no longer being available, incorrect price, quantity or description of the goods. We will not be bound by errors and we will inform you of such errors as soon as we become aware of them.
If cancellation of an order is initiated by us, no cancellation fees will be payable. We will refund you the Rand value that you have paid, only if you have already paid for the cancelled order. We will not be liable for any loss or claim relating to a cancelled order or refusal to process an order. We are not bound by any incorrect information about goods that are on our third party providers’ websites.
DELIVERY, COLLECTION AND STORAGE
We will charge a delivery fee for every order you place, which will be quoted and billed at checkout. Express and overnight express deliveries are not available for certain outlying and remote areas, furniture, or for goods purchased from American Swiss, Galaxy or Sterns.
Additional delivery charges
Additional delivery charges (which will vary, depending on your delivery address) apply to outlying areas, as well as the delivery of furniture. Delivery fees may change at any time without notice to you. The delivery fee and any additional charges applicable to your order will be communicated to you and must be paid when you place an order. 5.4
We will arrange for delivery to the delivery address that you provided to us. We are not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of the goods once we have delivered the goods to the delivery address you have provided to us.
We deliver between 09h00 and 17h00 on weekdays (Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays) and we only deliver within South Africa. Our ability to deliver is also always subject to certain factors, including the availability of the goods and the supply of accurate delivery address details.
We use third party companies for deliveries.
We will always do what is reasonably possible (but cannot guarantee that we will be able) to ensure that delivery happens on the agreed date. The delivery date is subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control. We will notify you should there be any delivery-related problems and we are unable to deliver on the agreed date. Once you receive this notification from us, you can decide whether you would like to cancel your order or not. We will refund you the Rand value you have paid if you decide to cancel your order. We will try to deliver all the goods in your order at the same time, but please some goods may not be available at the time of dispatch, particularly during sale periods and high demand periods like Christmas and Black Friday. If an item becomes unavailable, we will attempt to locate it at another store and dispatch it to you as soon as possible. We will notify you if we are unable to fulfil your order. Orders requiring ring sizing may take up to five additional business days to complete.
Access to the delivery location
You must ensure that we can access the place of delivery, and that the location is cleared for the goods to be delivered.

Our delivery crew is not permitted to rearrange your furniture, clear areas in preparation for the delivery or remove unwanted goods from the premises. Please do not tip or pay our delivery crew members.
We cannot guarantee the availability of stock, but will use reasonable efforts to ensure that stock is available. We will notify you when goods are no longer available after you have placed an order. We will refund you the Rand value for the goods you have purchased.
We rely on the information provided to us by our third party providers regarding the availability of their stock. We are not liable for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to us. Please contact our Customer Services or the relevant third party provider if you have any stock-related queries.

If you are unable to accept the goods yourself, please ensure that you or your authorised representative are available at the delivery address.

On delivery we will require that you or your authorised representative sign for the goods, write down your or their name and produce a form of identification (for example, an original ID or driver’s licence). This is to confirm that the goods have been received. If no one is at the delivery address to accept delivery, we will contact you to arrange an alternative time. You will be charged additional delivery charges if we cannot deliver the goods to you due to access problems or if you are not available when we deliver the goods. If we are unable to deliver the goods to you after three attempts, or should we deem it appropriate under the circumstances, we reserve the right to cancel your order, deduct charges we have incurred for failed deliveries or additional storage, and refund the balance due to you.
