Stock Shortages on Popular Products

Returns Policy

9.1 Your right to return an item does not apply to certain products unless these goods are faulty on delivery or misdescribed. Such items include:

  • Newspapers and magazines;
  • CDs, DVDs, videos and computer software, which may be restricted to an exchange for the same title to reduce the risk of unlicensed copying;
  • perishable items;
  • items which cannot be resold for health and hygiene reasons once unwrapped (for example body jewelry, mattresses, bedding, certain items of clothing, personal grooming products, medicines, and certain baby products, etc.); and/or
  • flat-packed furniture that has been partially or fully assembled; and items which have been installed using our installation service.

You are required to take reasonable care of items. Please return an item in its original and undamaged packaging with all of its components. If an item is returned undamaged in its original and undamaged packaging, we will offer you a refund in accordance with our returns policy. Your rights under consumer legislation for these goods are not affected.

9.3 Non-food items can be returned within fifteen (15) days not including Sundays and/or Public and/or National Holidays. Delivery cost is spread over all the shopping not just one item so such cost will not be considered/refunded. If you buy only one item and you incurred a delivery charge in respect of such one item, and such item is returned back to us, we will refund the cost of delivery as well.

9.4 We will replace the damaged items by identical items in good condition or will otherwise grant a refund depending on the customer’s preference.
