  4. Delivery and Exchange

      You may be entitled to a refund or replacement where goods are faulty or not as described. If the item is damaged or faulty, we will cover the transportation cost within South Africa of sending the item back to us. Please ensure that if you are sending anything back to us that you request a proof of postage, as we will not be liable for items lost in transit on their way back to us without proof of postage. If you wish to return an item which is not damaged or faulty, then you can return the item for a refund or exchange, provided the goods are in their original packaging and condition, but this is done at your own cost and original postage paid will not be refunded. If you have requested a refund, this will be processed within 30 days of receipt of your returned items. If this refund is made directly to your credit card this should appear on your next credit card statement. If you have returned an item, we ask that you allow up to 14 working days for the item to be received back with us and to be processed by our returns department, before you query the return.
