All charges will be displayed in South African currency. By submitting your order from the checkout screen, your order will be complete, and you will be deemed to have made a valid and binding offer to purchase our Product(s).

In the event of any refunds of any order, we will always attempt to refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for the Product(s). If this is not possible for whatever reason, we will contact you to arrange an alternative method of refund.
