6.2 All GAMES, COMPUTERS, ELECTRONICS, BABY and TOYS

Items need to be returned unopened/sealed

6.3 Statutory Returns

Section 44 of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act may apply to your order. Section 44 is only applicable if you are a natural person - in other words, a human being. You must also be the end-user of the goods or service. If you qualify as a consumer under the ECT Act, you may be entitled to cancel some electronic transactions within seven days, without reason or penalty.

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 the goods) within 14 (Fourteen) days of the date of cancellation.

The original delivery charge will not be refunded and the cost for returning the parcel is at your expense. Please include your order or invoice number in the box of the return so that your refund can be processed.

The following goods cannot be returned in terms of the ECT Act:

  • Unsealed video games, software or other audio or video recordings,
  • Books, magazines or other periodicals, and
  • Items we have specially sourced for you

Section 56 of the Consumer Protection Act may also apply to your order. Section 56 will only apply if:

  • are a natural person - in other words, a human being, or
  • a juristic person (like a company, trust or closed corporation) with an annual turnover of less than R2 million.

If you qualify as a consumer in terms of the CPA then all of our goods sold to you are sold with an implied warranty of quality against any defects for six months of normal household or business use, from the time we supplied the goods.

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 help facilitate the replacement or repair, or refund the price of any defective goods that you return to us during the six-month statutory waranty, if need be.

We will refund the reasonable postal and insurance costs of returning defective goods. We may inspect the goods to confirm that they are defective before we do so.

Our customer services department may tell you that they do not believe you have a claim, for example, because the warranty period of the goods has expired. In this case, we may refuse to replace goods, or refuse to pay a refund.

Deliver the defective physical goods under warranty to us or post them by normal prepaid registered post, insured against loss, damage and theft. The street and postal addresses for all returns are the same as for our customer services department, details of which are below.

Once we have received the package, we will notify you that we have received the physical goods. Please allow 10 (Ten) working days from the date on which you sent the envelope or package for it to reach us. If we have not notified you within 10 (Ten)working days, please contact the postal service that you sent the package through and try and establish whether it has been delivered to the correct address.

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.

If you select for us to make a refund, we will contact you and arrange payment of the refunded amount into a Credit store Online Wallet as a positive credited amount.

If we do not accept that we supplied defective or unsuitable goods, and our customer services department has not been able to help, any customer may still take the matter up with the consumer goods and services ombuds 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 practices 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 ready. We will try our best to solve your problem.

7. Incorrect items

In the event that we deliver incorrect items, we will either replace the item or refund you for any item that you receive that does not match the description advertised on the website. We will require you to return the item to us at no additional cost to yourself.

Please contact us at info@creditstore.co.za within 24 (Twenty-Four) hours where the item is not what you ordered.

9. Prices

The prices displayed are inclusive of 15% (Fifteen Percent) VAT. Delivery costs are charged separately on check out and do not form part of the product price displayed.

Though we endeavour to ensure that the prices displayed on the website are accurate, we offer Hundereds of products for sale at any time and it is impossible for us to monitor the prices of all individual products manually. While we go to lengths to ensure that the prices, we display are accurate, we are reliant on our suppliers for providing accurate pricing information and as a result, it is possible that erroneous prices may be displayed from time to time. In such cases, we shall not be obliged to sell the product at the erroneous price and will correct erroneous prices as soon as we become aware of them.

As part of our service, we source products from all over the world and the prices we display for products on our website will fluctuate with exchange rates, and as our suppliers change their stock holdings and pricing. The client will be responsible for any changes in the currency. Displaying a price on the website does not constitute any undertaking by us to maintain that price for any length of time. We will always endeavour to complete your order at the price quoted at the time that the order was placed, but in cases of erroneous pricing or where our suppliers deplete their reserves of specially priced stock, we may cancel all or a portion of your order and fully refund any advance payments that you have made toward the affected products.

10. Payments

If you pay by credit card, we will authorise (reserve) the amount of the order at the time of the order being placed and we will debit the card as soon as we actually start processing the order. Any subsequent cancellations will be refunded to the card.

We do not store your credit card details. Our acquiring bank allows us to transact on cards that we've used in the previous 6-month period by using partial card details and referring to the previous successful transaction on that card. If applicable, you can choose to pay on your previously used card during the checkout process.

We may require further authentication on credit card payments, which we will request from you after you have submitted your payment.

If you pay directly into our bank account and need to be refunded, we will refund the amount to your CreditStore.co.za customer account.

All refunds will be credited to your customer account (Wallet).

There is no interest payable on the balance in your customer account.

11. Delivery

For deliveries, we use the South African Post Office, Courier-it (door-to-door deliveries).

We reserve the right to use any other service providers as needed.

You need to ensure that you provide us with a valid delivery address and contact number and choose the correct delivery address and delivery method during the checkout process.

For further information regarding our delivery rates and terms & conditions.

Please contact us if you do not receive your parcel within the estimated delivery time provided and we will happily assist in locating it.

You accept that in order for us to prove delivery of an order or part thereof, we do not have to prove that you personally received the goods, but that any person at the delivery address specified on your order signed for the delivery.

In the case of the post office or depot collections, we need to prove that somebody, not necessarily you, collected the delivery from the depot or post office. Unfortunately, proof-of-delivery records cannot be retained indefinitely and if a delivery has been dispatched by us and not reported missing by you within 6 (Six) months of us having dispatched it, the package will be deemed to have been delivered without us having to provide proof of delivery.

Should a delivery be returned to us as undeliverable, we will let you know and request that you to make arrangements to either have the parcel collected from us or re-delivered to you. You authorise us to dispose of, donate, or resell the contents of parcels not collected within 6 (Six) months of such request being made.

Should you choose to collect your order or parts thereof from us, we will let you know once each parcel is ready for collection. You authorise us to dispose of, donate, or resell the contents of parcels not collected within 6 (Six) months of such notification being sent.

Should you receive a delivery where the contents of the package do not match the items listed on the dispatch note included in the package, you agree to notify us without delay and we will not be liable for shortages not reported within 7 (seven) days of you having received the package.

Delivery made to areas outside of the delivery areas of our service provider will be charged at higher rates and must be paid by the customer in addition to the price of the product purchased.

Age restrictions and age suitability

The onus is on you to ensure that you and/or the person for whom you may be buying a product on the Website, meet any age restrictions applicable to such products ordered by you on the Website (including wine and spirits, DVDs and Blu-Rays), that these restrictions are observed, that you are over 18 in the case of Wine and Spirits, and that any product bought is age-appropriate. Accordingly, you indemnify CreditStore.co.za from any and all liability in this regard, including any liability arising as a result of your failure to provide accurate information in this regard when completing the CreditStore.co.za Website registration process.

12. Agreement of sale/cancellations

An order is placed with us only after you have clicked on the [Pay for this order] button. Your order is an offer to purchase the goods from us. We only accept your offer once we have dispatched the goods or you have collected them from us. We do not need to communicate our acceptance to you. Placing an item in your cart does not constitute an order and we cannot be held liable if the item is no longer available, or if the price has changed by the time the checkout process is completed.

We reserve the right to cancel an order at any point in time without giving any reasons. In this case, we shall be liable to refund any money already paid in respect of that order.

Please note that our website will show an item as being available even if only one unit is available to purchase. If you order multiple units of the same item, we may not be able to supply additional units at the same price, within the same time frame, or in some cases, at all. Please contact us to check the availability of multiple units prior to placing an order.

Should you wish to cancel all or part of an order, please send your cancellation request to info@creditstore.co.za. Please note, however, that we may not be able to cancel items from an order if they have already been dispatched by our suppliers.

CreditStore reserves the right to terminate or expire promotional vouchers at any time at their own discretion.
