16. Pre-Order Terms and Conditions
16.1. Application of terms and conditions. The terms and conditions laid out herein applies to all terms pre-ordered online at SupportCALL (www.supportcall.co.za) and is subject to our standard Terms & Conditions as listed on this website. You, the customer, enters into the following 'Pre-Order' agreement with SupportCALL No:2013/102719/07:
16.2. The Spirit of FairPlay. Because we pride ourselves in our customer service, a diverse range of products and the ability to meet the ever-growing consumer demands, we have allowed the pre-ordering of products on our website. The pre-ordering system essentially gives customers peace of mind that newly launched products or services can be secured before the official launch date or the required date thereby avoiding disappointment on or after the day. There are however times when unethical customers may try to take advantage of us and/or our systems so it is necessary to lay down the ground rules so that arguments can be prevented and/or resolved. We, therefore, would like to officially lay down the following ground rules for pre-ordering.
16.3. Minimum Deposit. A minimum deposit (as advertised on the website) will be required for pre-orderable items from time to time. Pre-orders must be secured with 100%upfront payment, before delivery. A pre-order is considered secured only when the appropriate amount for a deposit or full pre-payment is made.“Secured” means that we will to the best of our ability attempt to secure the relevant stocks, to fulfil the order. It does not mean that pre-orders will be fulfilled 100% of the time, as occasionally there are circumstances beyond our control, but rest assured that we will fulfil all pre-orders 99.9%of the time.
16.4. Settling the Balance. Please be advised that SupportCALL will be contacting you prior to the launch date to arrange for the settlement of the outstanding balance as per the advertised purchase price. We do however urge our customers to pay the full purchase price up-front so as to avoid the potential inconvenience of settling the outstanding balance before the launch date.
16.5. Maximum order quantities. To protect our Customers from unscrupulous elements who attempt to profit from limited stock and market demands, we restrict Customers' pre-orders to a limited number of units per product ordered. This ensures that everyone gets their fair share.
16.6. Pre-order status. All pre-orders are subject to stock availability. Sometimes manufacturers and suppliers are unable to stick to a delivery schedule and sometimes they are unable to fulfil their promise on quantities. However, to the best of our ability, we will only work with dependable, reliable and timely suppliers to protect your interests. Fortunately, these incidents are few and far between. For items for which severe shortage occurs, we will revert to the fairest basis which is first-pre-ordered, first-served. So it always pays to be quick and decisive when it comes to pre-ordering. Please note that the expected launch dates are subject to change at the manufacturer's discretion.
16.7. Changing your pre-order or cancelling it. In the event of changes to the advertised pricing, features or product offerings, the Customer will be notified and given an opportunity to continue, cancel or amend his/her pre-order. Refunds, Changes and cancellations will only be possible for pre-orders that haven't been shipped to the Customer. Please allow for a potential variance, between the estimated pre-order price and the actual final retail price. The variance is usually applicable to imported items for which foreign freight, currency exchange rate fluctuations and of course, taxes. This usually works both ways, both for price increases and lower prices, subject to the final expenses incurred in importing the items.
16.8. Deliveries &Part Shipment. Deliveries of pre-orders will generally be concluded within 72hours of the advertised launch date, we will, however, endeavour to have your product delivered as close to the advertised launch date as possible, ensuring that you are one of the first to have the product. In the event of part shipment (partial shipment), as requested by the Customer, he/she will be liable for all the associated delivery charges.
16.9. Collecting your pre-order. Customers will be permitted to collect their pre-orders at their self-appointed store.
