Most items listed on this website are not held in stock at our premises (unless otherwise stated) and are rather ordered from various suppliers as orders are placed. While we constantly update the site's prices and product stock levels based on information from our suppliers, it is recommended that you wait for an email or phone-call from us before making payment for any orders placed on the website. We will also give you an estimated delivery time. Certain items such as fully-assembled PCs may have a slightly longer lead-time (due to the fact that they'll need to be assembled and tested). Should any item not be in stock with our suppliers, we will contact you to suggest a substitute product. At this point, you may accept the substitute, place the item on backorder or cancel the item from your order.
Once the order has been confirmed, you can make payment via EFT or cash deposit. These are the only payment methods that we accept currently. Orders will be placed with our suppliers once proof of payment has been received and shipped once the payment reflects in our bank account. Due to having accounts with all the major SA banks, we can process most EFTs immediately. This allows us to get products shipped to you much quicker when you make payment via EFT.
Payment must take place within 48 hours of placing the order or we may cancel it or update it if pricing has changed.
