Payment

You can pay with either Mastercard or Visa credit cards (issued within South Africa), Mobicred (depending on Mobicred approval) or EFT.

All prices include VAT.

When paying via internet transfer into our bank account, please use your order number as a reference. We are more than happy to receive proof of payment, however we still cannot process any order until the payment has cleared our bank account.

All other forms of payment, I-Pay and PayFast usually clear immediately (provided there are no unforeseen issues on the payment gateway side).

Gas and Solar (PTY) Ltd will not be held liable for any cash given to our drivers as payment. We do not accept COD (cash on delivery). Orders will only be processed and dispatched once the payment reflects in our account.

 

Placing Orders

If you are unsure of what delivery option to select, contact us first for confirmation, do not just pick any delivery option, as this can result in your order not being processed, until full and correct payment is received. If you are located in rural or outlying areas, please contact us before placing an order, to confirm whether we deliver to that location.

Most orders are dispatched within our turnaround time, 3-10 working days (excluding lead time orders). In the unlikely event that there are unexpected delays, we may not be able to dispatch the items within the scheduled time provided. We will only begin processing of your order once full payment has been received and cleared in our bank account. In event that we are out of stock, we will notify you and update regarding the process of your order or alternative options.

Payments not received within 2 working days will not confirm stock availability. Payments not received after 7 working days will result in the order being automatically cancelled from our end.

 

Deliveries

Delivery costs are subject to change without prior notice

Delivery charge is calculated on checkout once you have added your delivery address, but please contact us to confirm the delivery charge should you feel uncertain.

If delivery is to outlying, rural or informal settlements, or into a reserve or estate, or any area consisting of entry fees, this will incur a surcharge that must be paid by the customer in addition to the existing order value prior to delivery. If such payment for the surcharge is not made, your order will not be processed, until full and correct payment is received

Deliveries will only be made to the delivery address selected on checkout. If you are unable to be present at the delivery of the parcel please ensure that a 3rd party is made available to accept the delivery. Please forward the 3rd party details to the sales rep handling your order, which will include the name and ID number, along with contact details. Ensure that this person has Identification and a letter signed by the purchaser giving the necessary authority for the 3rd party to collect on behalf of the purchaser.

Gas and Solar Appliances (PTY) Ltd has no control over the courier companies and the quality of their services, therefore we cannot be held liable for inconvenience or delays caused by the couriers. If a courier makes multiple attempts to deliver, without success, you may be charged a handling fee. Kindly note that we are not held responsible for any loss, theft, or damage during shipping.

NB: Signing the POD (proof of delivery) from the courier serves to confirm that the parcel was received in good order. We do not have to prove delivery of your order or that you personally have received the items. We will accept the signature on the POD submitted by the courier that a person at the address given on the order has signed for delivery.

Unfortunately, POD’s cannot be kept indefinitely. If delivery has been dispatched by us and not reported missing by you within 21 days of us having dispatched it, the package will be deemed to have been delivered without us having to provide proof of such delivery.

Dispatching of parcels are done from Monday to Friday excluding weekends and Public Holidays. Couriers deliver Monday to Friday, but not on weekends or public holidays. Please provide a physical address not a P.O Box Address. Choosing courier delivery and providing a P.O Box address will automatically put your order on hold until a physical address is supplied. Once a tracking number is provided, the onus is on the buyer to track their order.

Free delivery means that you are able to collect your order for free from our premises and does not entitle your order to be delivered free of charge.

 

Collections

Processing of orders takes between 3-10 business days after full payment is received (excluding lead time orders), providing there is stock. Gas and Solar Appliances will notify you once your order is ready for collection. Stock is not always kept in the warehouse, so no collections will be allowed prior to you being notified of collection date by a sales representative.

Collections can be arranged in person or through your own courier. Warehouse collection times are Mon-Friday only from 9am – 3pm. Gas and Solar Appliances must be notified of all courier collections by email and include the following details: Courier Company, Gas and Solar Appliances order/quote number, Customer Name.
