    Your refund will show as a credit on your account and should take up to 3 days to reflect.

     

    What is the warranty on your products?

    We warrant that all our goods are new and of good quality unless we clearly describe them as used or reconditioned or as having specific defects. We warrant all our new goods against any defects for a minimum of six-months of normal business use (longer where the supplier provides a longer warranty), from the time we supplied the goods. This is the statutory warranty in terms of the Consumer Protection Act of 2008 (the CPA).

     

    What happens if you have a defective product?

    Defective goods are those that had a defect or were unsafe when we supplied them. We highly recommend testing out your purchase as soon as you have received it to make sure that everything is in working order. A defect usually means that the goods were manufactured using materials, components or workmanship below an acceptable standard. You must show that the goods are defective.

     

    Statutory Compensation

    We will repair, replace, or refund the price of any defective goods that you return to us during the six-month statutory warranty. Returns must follow our returns procedure below. We will do our best to repair the defective good, or replace it within 21 calendar days. However, if it takes longer, we will contact you to let you know what is happening.

     

    Statutory Warranty of Repairs

    We do not personally carry out the repair, but we will send the goods to the supplier to be repaired. We warrant all our repairs and repaired goods against the failure of a repair and any further defect for the remaining portion of the statutory warranty plus a further three months from the time we returned the repaired goods.

      

    Returns of unsuitable goods

    A consumer must return unsuitable goods within fifteen days of delivery according to our returns and refunds procedure below.

     

    Refunds

    We do not provide refunds but will pass a credit which can be used for future purchase from us. The goods need to be unused, in original condition and packaging and in a form which enables us to resell such. a 20% handling fee will be levied and the customer needs to cover all shipping charges related to the return for credit.
