You must return any goods in new condition with all packaging and materials. We will refund the purchase price of the goods (minus the direct costs of returning thegoods) within 30 days of the date of return request.

Defective goods are those that had a defect or were unsafe when we supplied them. A defect usually means that the goods were manufactured using materials, components or workmanship below an acceptable standard. You must prove that goods are defective.

We will replace, repair, or refund the price of any defective goods that you return to us during the six-month statutory warranty. For unboxed items, we cannot replace or repair, we can only refund.

If you claim that our goods are defective, our technicians will examine the goods for defects. In the case of physical goods, our technicians will examine the actual goods. They will report to us whether the goods were defective, were misused or are of good quality. If our technician reports that the goods were misused, were of good quality, were not provided to you for a specific purpose or were suitable for that purpose, then we will not replace or refund the goods.

If you choose for us to replace or repair the goods, we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to organise the necessary steps to repair or replace the goods. This may not be applicable to unboxed deals.

If you choose for us to make a refund, we will contact you and arrange payment of the refunded amount into a bank account of your choice within 30 days of cancellation.

If we do not accept that we supplied defective or unsuitable goods, and our returns department has not been able to help, any customer may still take the matter up with the consumer goods and services ombuds http://www.cgso.org.za/ or other dispute resolution body, or take legal action. The dispute resolution procedures under the CPA do not necessarily apply to all transactions with us. This policy does not exclude any other rights customers may have.

We aim for complete customer satisfaction. We respect our customers’ rights and always try to comply with best practice and all relevant laws. If you are not satisfied with any of our goods, or have any questions, please contact our customer services department and have your invoice number ready.
