E. Creating an Order
Orders can only be created through the use of our Websites. No orders by telephone, email, SMS, fax or any other medium will be accepted. For the avoidance of doubt, this condition will apply to our Customer Service Centre and our online shopping fulfilment platforms. Please note that the Merchant, Clickonit or the Consumer Service Centre may guide you through the process of placing an order, but are unable to place the order on your behalf.
F. Accepting your Order and creating an Electronic Contract - The steps required in creating the contract between you and clickonit.co.za are as follows:
- You will be guided through the process of booking a delivery/collection slot and filling your shopping trolley/basket though a series of simple steps on our Websites;
- The final step in placing your order will be by confirming the accuracy of your trolley, your substitution preferences and the associated guide price to be charged to your chosen payment method/s. You order is confirmed on completion of the check-out process;
- You will receive an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered and any associated delivery or collection information.
- The email acknowledgement will present an 'indicative or guide price' only and will be subject to change depending on, but not limited to, the following:
- The price of the product changing between the time your order is placed and the day payment is processed (payment is normally processed the day of delivery, but for operational reasons may also be processed the day before delivery);
- Your Merchant may weigh loose items like fruit and vegetables or pick pre-packed weighed items. The price of weight dependent items may vary in store from that on our Websites, or may be slightly different to the original weight ordered;
- Unless you have been notified that your order is not accepted or you have cancelled it in accordance with the instructions given, our acceptance of an order takes place on dispatch of the order, at which point the purchase contract will be made and you will be charged for your order.
- Items ordered by weight - Where items are ordered by weight, your personal shopper will endeavour to provide you with an amount as close to the requested weight as possible. The actual amount you receive may exceed or be less than the amount requested. Please note that the price charged will be solely based on the actual weight of the item that you received - and not the requested weight. Should the amount or the price of the delivered item be unacceptable you may return the item (or items) with the driver for a full refund. Clickonit will not be liable for any redelivery or remedy from items returned due to weight or cost differences. Should the weight on the delivery invoice differ from the actual weight of the product delivered, but the price charged is accurate, Clickonit will not be liable for delivery of the weight amount as per the delivery invoice.
G. Risk and Ownership
For the avoidance of doubt, the ownership and risk associated with your goods will be held by the Merchant and not by Clickonit up until the point at which they are signed for at delivery or collection. Any damage, disappearance or theft of goods post-delivery or collection, will become the responsibility of the person who placed the order and against whom the contract is binding.
H. Stock availability
Only items indicated as available on our Websites can be purchased. Items stocked in stores but not indicated as available on our Websites, do not form part of our catalogue and therefore cannot be ordered. We will not pick or deliver items not available on our Websites even if they are requested
I. Delivery and Pickup
All products ordered are between the Merchant and the Buyer. Delivery, Courier and /or pickup has to be arranged with the merchant and not with Clickonit.
The stock made available to you on our Websites is determined by the store from where your order will be placed. The tore from where your order will be picked is based upon your delivery address and not your registered address, although these may be the same address. You accept that this allocation is made automatically and cannot be changed even if requested. You are welcome to contact us here should you not be satisfied with your Merchant.
K. Buying Liquor, Adult Products, Ammunition and/or DVD's
Pursuant to the Licensing Act it is an offence for any person under the age of 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, intoxicating liquor, or for any person over the age of 18 to buy intoxicating liquor on behalf of any person under the age of 18. is committed to upholding both their legal and social obligations as a retailer of liquor. In order to achieve this, clickonit.co.za has introduced a number of control checks throughout the purchase and physical distribution process (e.g. confirming date of birth and requesting formal identification of anyone considered to be younger than 18). In accepting these Terms and Conditions you agree to provide clickonit.co.za truthful and accurate information and act in accordance with all Legislation.
L. Payment for Products Ordered
