Terms and Conditions

Introduction

The Foot Fashion online shop can be accessed at www.footfashion.co.za, related mobile sites and applications (“the site”). The site enables buyers to shop for shoes by selected international brands (“the products”) online and have them delivered door-to-door within South Africa. All visitors to the site (“users” or “you”) will be able to see the shoes on offer, but only those who have registered for an account on Foot Fashion (“account holders” or “you”) are able to buy.

All users and account holders, including those that buy from the site (“buyers”) are bound by these terms and conditions (“T&Cs”). By registering, or using the site at all, you recognise that you’ve read, accepted and agreed to be bound by these T&Cs. Should there be any clause in these T&Cs that you do not understand, the onus is on you to ask Foot Fashion to please explain the relevant clause to you before you accept the T&Cs by using or buying from the site.

The site is owned and run by Foot Fashion, (herein after referred to as “Foot Fashion”). More information about Spree is available at the end of these terms and conditions.

Please note that the stock of all items on offer is limited. Foot Fashion will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that special offers are brought to an end when stock runs out. If it happens that Foot Fashion is unable to fulfill any order at the advertised price because stock is sold out, Foot Fashion will inform you via email and you’ll be entitled to a reimbursement for the rand value you have paid for Such product. Please note, the Foot Fashion Delivery and Returns policy is incorporated by reference and therefore forms part of these T&Cs.

Buying Products

1. 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.

2. A purchasing contract (“sale”) between you and Foot Fashion only comes into effect once you have fully completed AND submitted the online order form for one or more products in your shopping cart (“cart”) AND your payment has been authorised by Foot Fashion (or has been received into Foot Fashion’s bank account).

3. The above is dependent on the product being available.

4. Products on Foot Fashion cannot be reserved to be bought at a later stage, and placing an item in your cart without completing the order does not amount to a “sale”.

5. This means that Foot Fashion may remove any product(s) from your cart before the sale actually takes place, in the event of the product going out of stock.

6. Foot Fashion cannot be held responsible if the product(s) you added to your cart have become unavailable when you try to complete the sale.

7. An invoice will be emailed to the email address on your Foot Fashion profile. A delivery note will be included with your order – please note that no prices are visible on the delivery note.

Cancelling and ending orders

1. Foot Fashion reserves the right to refuse processing of payment for any order and/or to cancel any purchase, partially or completely, with notice given to you.

2. Foot Fashion will be liable for reimbursing you the rand value paid only if you have already paid for the cancelled order.

Fraud

1. Foot Fashion 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.

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

3. Foot Fashion does not provide order details relating to orders suspected of fraud.

Product Pricing

The price of each product is given on the product information page (“the product page”) on the site.

1. The Regular Retail Price (“RRP”) is the standard price that Foot Fashion charges for the product. The RRP is determined by considering the suppliers’ price and the current exchange rate.

2. When a product is not on sale, on special, or included in a discount promotion, the RRP is the price you will pay when you purchase the product (“purchase price”).

3. Please note that RRPs can change over the course of several seasons over which the product may be sold. The RRPs applicable at the time the product is introduced may differ from the RRP at the time of your purchase.

4. When Foot Fashion has a product on sale, the discount price is shown on the product’s product page, as well as the Regular Retail Price (“RRP”). The discount price will be shown in gold and the RRP will be shown below it – but will be crossed out. The discount savings you are receiving is also shown on the left of the product page.

5. When a discount price is shown on the product page, the discount price is the price you will pay when you add the product to your cart at the discounted price, and conclude the sale at the discounted price i.e. the purchase price.

6. Every reasonable effort will be made to ensure that the RRP and, if applicable, the Discount Price of all products on Foot Fashion are correct at the time of your purchase. If, however, the product is offered at an erroneous price, Foot Fashion will not be obliged to supply the said product at the incorrect price.

7. Foot Fashion will only be liable to return payment already made by you in the case you choose to cancel the sale once you have been made aware of the correct price.
