Orders & Payments

Users may place orders for Goods, which Aliverti may accept or reject. Whether or not Aliverti accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Aliverti for the Goods. 

NOTE: Aliverti will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Aliverti come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from Aliverti stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Aliverti will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.

We strive to get orders fulfilled and shipped as quickly as possible. For that reason, there is a very small window for us to cancel/edit orders once they are placed through our website. The estimated window for cancellations/edits is 30 minutes once you have submitted your order. If your order is within the estimated window please contact our customer service team at info@aliverti.co.za. Please note that cancellation/edit requests made outside of business hours (8 AM to 5 PM, Monday-Friday) will not be responded to until the following business day.

Placing Goods in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such Goods, and as such, Goods may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available. You cannot hold Aliverti liable if such Goods are not available when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage.

You acknowledge that the stock of all Goods on offer is limited. In the case of Goods for sale by Aliverti, Aliverti will make all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after placing an order, Aliverti will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such Goods.
