All visitors to the site ("users" or "you") will be able to see the products on offer, but only those who have registered for an account on ePETstore.co.za ("ePETstore.co.za accountholders” or “you”) are able to buy.

Legally binding contract

All users and account holders, including those that buy from the site("buyers") are bound by these terms and conditions ("Ts&Cs"). By registering, or using the site at all, you recognise that you've read and accepted these terms and conditions.

With whom are you entering into a contract?

The site is owned and run by Cube Route Pty LTD registration number1997/004303/07, a company incorporated in the Republic of South Africa (hereinafter referred to as “ePETstore”). More information about Cube Route Pty LTD is available here.

Products and availability

Please note that the stock of all items on offer is limited. ePETstore will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that special offers are brought to an end when stock runs out. If it happens that ePETstore is unable to fulfil any order at the advertised price because stock is sold out, ePETstore will let you know and you'll be entitled to a reimbursement for the rand value you have paid for such product. This is described in more detail in ePETstore’s Returns Policy

Buying products

The site allows you, the user, to place electronic orders ("order") for one or more products on offer as long as such products are available and not sold out. 

A purchasing contract ("sale") between you and ePETstore only comes into effect once you have fully completed AND submitted the online order form for one or more products in your basket ("shopping cart") AND your payment has been authorised by ePETstore (or has been received into ePETstore's bank account). The above is dependent on the product being available. 

Products on ePETstore cannot be reserved to be bought at a later stage, and placing an item in your basket without completing the order does not amount to a sale or an order. This means that ePETstore may remove any item from your basket before the sale actually takes place in the event of the product going out of stock. 

ePETstore cannot be held responsible if an order has become unavailable by the time you try to complete a purchase at a later stage. The invoice for your purchase will be available online in the "My Account" section on the site.

Cancelling orders:

ePETstore reserves the right to refuse processing of payment for any order and/or to cancel any purchase, partially or completely, without prior notice given to you. ePETstore will be liable for reimbursing you the Rand value paid only if you have already paid for the cancelled order. You have the right to return item(s) purchased (see ePETstore's Delivery and Returns Policy for more information).

Fraud

ePETstore reserves the right, in the interest of preventing fraud, to refuse the processing of     payment for any order and/or to cancel any purchase, partially or completely.

ePETstore may request documentation to complete the necessary fraud checks and cancel any order where the necessary documentation is not provided in a timely manner.

In the event of a fraudulent purchase being placed on ePETstore, cardholders will be advised to initiate a chargeback via their bank in order to be refunded. ePETstore does not process refunds for orders suspected of fraud.

ePETstore does not provide order details relating to orders suspected of fraud.
