All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and Gold Bottom Africa will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We reserve the right to restrict multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or postal address. We provide goods only as a reseller to end user customers and do not accept orders via our website from dealers, exporters, wholesalers, or other customers who intend to resell the products offered by Gold Bottom Africa.
We reserve the right to refuse any order without giving reason. Upon cancellation of an order we will make all reasonable attempts to contact you using the details provided. All received monies will be refunded using the method received.
Prices shown on the Site are in South African Rand (ZAR). Prices are subject to change without notice.
If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in the above currency, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. We are not liable for any difference between the Estimated Price quoted on the site and the actual Price charged to you for the Goods as determined by the conversion rate used by your credit card provider or Paypal (available soon).
We offer products for sale that are in stock/made to order and available for dispatch from our distribution centre. We endeavour to only display products on our site that are available to purchase. Occasionally, if items are very popular they will sell out very quickly. In this case, you will be contacted within 72 hours if we are unable to fulfil your order and a full refund will be processed.
The delivery times provided by Gold Bottom Africa are estimates only. We aim to deliver within the time indicated by us at the place of delivery requested by you. We cannot guarantee delivery dates and we shall not be liable to you for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses arising out of late delivery. Please note that it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. If this is the case, we will inform you using the contact details that you provide to us when you make your order and arrange for cancellation of the order or delivery to an alternative delivery address. In the event that multiple items are ordered, part deliveries may be made where stock is not available. All reasonable attempts to notify you will be made using the details you provided.
On delivery of the Product, you may be required to sign for delivery, unless you grant us authority to leave (“ATL”) - specify in notes at checkout. If you grant ATL you understand and agree that this authority to leave gives us and/or our selected couriers permission to leave the Order in question unattended by the front door – or, where applicable, at the reception or concierge’s desk – of the delivery address without obtaining a signature confirming delivery at the delivery location. In such circumstances, you understand and agree that by granting us authority to leave, we and our couriers are released of all responsibility and liability for the Orders delivered and left unattended, and that this responsibility and liability transfer to you on delivery. If you are not available to take delivery or collection, please inform us on email@example.com.
You agree to inspect the Product for any obvious faults, defects or damage before you sign for delivery. You need to keep receipt of the delivered Product in case of future discussions with us about it. The buyer is responsible for inspecting the goods for fault and notifying us in accordance with our Returns Policy should there be a fault. Unless otherwise specified, responsibility and title in the Goods passes to you upon delivery. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and transfer of responsibility in the same way. From the time when risk passes to you, we will not be liable for loss or destruction of the Product.
