Purchase errors

We want you and your pets to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. If you aren’t, for any reason (such as if a wrong size or colour is chosen), then please return it to us in the purchase condition you received it in within 7 days of receiving the products. We can then exchange it for another product or offer you a credit voucher to the value of the purchase price (excluding the delivery cost). Refunds will be done within 30 days of date of cancellation. You will be liable for the delivery charge on returning the product to us. If you order the incorrect size / design and require a swop, an additional delivery will be charged.

Please note that we cannot always provide the colour or specific character within a series requested for some products as these are dependent on stock available at the supplier. We will, however, do our best to meet your requirements and will keep you in the loop regarding selecting alternatives or delays.

Delivery errors

Errors occasionally do happen. Should you receive the wrong product please contact us within 7 days of receipt of the products and we will organise to have it returned to us and your correct order dispatched asap. You will not be charged the delivery costs for the correct order to be dispatched if the error was made on our side.

Damaged items

Once you have received your products, please check the contents immediately and report any discrepancies or damages to us immediately. We will organise a replacement product or credit voucher / refund for you for the damaged item, which will be shipped as soon as we have received the damaged product back. We will incur all costs of the return on the product and shipment of the new one (if applicable). Should a product be faulty / damaged, we will organise with the manufacturer / importer / supplier to assess the product. We are restricted to the supplier’s guarantees and warranties, which may mean fixing the item instead of replacing it. Should they find the product to be in 100% working condition, and the fault be attributed to incorrect usage, we will not be able to refund or exchange the product. The cost of returning the product to us / the relevant supplier as well as the return to you (of a non-faulty product) will be charged for or not refunded – whichever is applicable in each case. In most cases, damaged / faulty items have to be returned to the original supplier within 7 days of receipt.

Cancellations or changes

We are very flexible and would like to always keep our customers 100% satisfied. If for some reason you want to cancel or change your order after payment has been made, we will assist you as far as possible with this. If the parcel has already been shipped, you will need to return it to us in the same condition it was received, at your expense. If you contact us in time and we haven’t shipped your parcel yet, we will happily make the necessary changes in the order. Order changes can result in a revised delivery fee (if applicable) and / or revised discount structure (if applicable). Please note that we do reserve the right to a termination penalty on cancellation of large orders.

Payment Options and Pricing

All transactions will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR).

Pet Goodies Online Shop strives to offer you competitive prices on current products; you’re total order price will include the price of the purchase plus any applicable sales tax and shipping charges (on the day of shipping).

Pet Goodies Online Shop reserves the right to change pricing at any time without prior notice.

EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer)

One of the most widely used ways of sending money online. Once you have added enough items to your shopping cart, proceed to “Checkout” and follow the order processing instructions. Select the option to pay via EFT. You will then have to load Pet Goodies Online Shop banking and use the Invoice number in the reference line for your payment. This should ensure speedy processing and delivery of your selected products.

Banking details are included on your invoice.

We do not accept payments made directly inside an FNB branch, should you wish to pay inside an FNB branch a fee of R40 will be added to your invoice. Please use EFT, ATM deposits or credit card payments.

ATM Deposit

You may pay for your products through a direct deposit. It’s exactly the same as doing an EFT payment, except you’ll have to go to the ATM and physically make your direct deposit there. Please e-mail through your deposit slip to us at sales@petgoodies.co.za to ensure your payment is confirmed and order shipped as quickly as possible.

Credit Card Payments

Credit Card payments are processed securely by SagePay (PTY) Ltd.

3 Domain Security – is a new method of security mandated by the Card Associations to enhance the security of online transactions. Mastercard’s product is called “SecureCode” and Visa’s product is called “Verified by Visa” The 3D-Secure refers to three domains involved in the security – they are the Acquiring or Merchant’s bank, the Card Association’s financial networks ie Mastercard and Visa and the Issuing or Cardholder’s bank.

The system authenticates the cardholder before the transaction takes place by diverting the browser to the bank that issued the card, who then request some secret, perhaps a pin, from their cardholder that will conclusively prove that this actually is the cardholder entitled to use this card. Once they are satisfied that this is their cardholder, they issue an authentication receipt which is then presented to the merchant’s bank along with the authorization request. If the transaction is then approved by the issuing bank, they may not charge the transaction back to the merchant because the cardholder disputes the transaction as not being originated by them.

Once the payment has been verified your order will be processed and you will be redirected back to Pet Goodies.

Please note that Credit Card payments can take up to 2 days to clear. We will only begin processing your order after your payment has cleared.
