2 LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT
All Users, including Registered User and those Registered User who purchase any products on the Site (“Purchasers”) are bound by these terms and conditions (“T&C”) and by browsing or using the Site in any way, you hereby acknowledge that you have read and accepted these T&C.

4 PRODUCTS & AVAILABILITY
Please note that stocks of all Products on offer are limited.
FashionHub shall take all reasonable efforts to ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued. However, should FashionHub be unable to fulfil any Order placed by you at the advertised price due to stock having sold out, FashionHub will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such product, as explained in more detail in the FashionHub Returns Policy
5 PURCHASING PRODUCTS
As a Member, the Site will enable you to place electronic orders (“Order”) for one or more Products offered, for so long as such Products are still available and have not sold out.
A purchase agreement between you and FashionHub (“Purchase”) only comes into effect if you electronically submit a properly completed Order for one or more Products in your shopping basket AND payment is either authorised or received by FashionHub into its bank account, subject to stock of the Product concerned being available.
Products cannot be reserved for later purchase, and placing a Product in your shopping basket without completing the purchase does not constitute an Order for, or a Purchase of such Product. Consequently, prior to actual Purchase, FashionHub may remove any Product from your shopping basket if stock of the Product is no longer available, or if 30 minutes has elapsed, and you cannot hold FashionHub liable if any Product is not available when you attempt to complete the Purchase at a later stage.
Note that should you wish to purchase a Product as a gift for someone else, you should specify the fact that the Product will be a gift where indicated when placing your Order, failing which the Order will be deemed to be for you personally.
The invoice in respect of your Purchase will be available online in the "My Account" section of the Site. A copy of such invoice will also be included with the Product when delivered; unless you have indicated that the Product is a gift (as aforesaid) in which case a gift delivery slip will be included with the Product instead.
6 TERMINATION OF PURCHASES & CANCELLATION OF ORDER
6.1 By FashionHub: FashionHub reserves the right, for purposes of preventing suspected fraud, to refuse to accept or process payment on any Order and/or to cancel any Purchase, in whole or in part, on notice to you. FashionHub shall only be liable to refund monies already paid by you in respect of the cancelled portion of the Order (see FashionHub’s Returns Policy in this regard).
By You: You are entitled to cancel any Order/s or Purchase/s as provided for in the Returns Policy.
If Any order is Cancelled before the Delivery Period has lapsed will be charged a 25% cancelation fee.
6.2 Please note that all goods bought on the FashionHub.co.za website will only be returnable via FashionHub (both through our approved courier partners and at our premises, during working hours).

FashionHub shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately indicate Purchase Prices and delivery charges. However, should Products be erroneously offered at incorrect Purchase Prices and/or delivery charges, FashionHub will not be obliged to sell Products at such incorrect Purchase Prices and/or delivery charges and shall only be liable to refund monies paid should you not wish to proceed with the Purchase at the correct Purchase Price and/or delivery charge.
8 PAYMENT BY PAYU
Purchases may currently be paid for by credit cards via PayU.
At the time of placing the Order, the transaction details are presented to the bank and an authorization is obtained for the amount of the Order. If such authorisation is not obtained, the Order will be cancelled. If authorisation is obtained, payment is usually immediate.
You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying for your Order and that this credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all of the costs incurred as a result of using the Services.
9.1 Place of delivery
FashionHub only delivers Products within the Republic of South Africa.
As Purchaser, you will be able to specify the place of delivery within South Africa, and the contact number(s) to be used in relation to the delivery, for each Order when you place such Order.
Products will be delivered to the delivery address specified by you during the Order process and if nobody is at the address when the delivery is made, our courier will contact the mobile number you provided to us in the relevant Order and/or a notice of attempted delivery may be put through the letterbox. Our courier will attempt re-delivery one more time thereafter, but if delivery is again unsuccessful, it will be your responsibility to contact the courier company to either arrange that you collect the package from the courier’s nearest depot or to agree upon a new delivery date with the courier. If you have not contacted the courier within a reasonable time, then the package will be sent back to FashionHub who will contact you via email to arrange a possible re-delivery at your expense. If attempted contact is unsuccessful within a reasonable period of time, FashionHub will merely refund you.
9.2 Delivery time and delays
Unless otherwise stated to you prior to placing the Order to final confirmation thereof, the estimated shipping time for an order is between 3 and 7 working days from the date of your purchase.
FashionHub may also notify you of the dispatch of your Order via email (to the email address we have on record for you) summarizing the Products sent.
9.3 Partial Delivery
You will be informed of the partial delivery of an Order by e-mail. A second e-mail will be sent informing you of the delivery of the other Products ordered, if applicable.
In the event of a partial delivery, there will be a delivery note in the package summarising the Products which can be found inside it.
9.4 Delivery Made
Each delivery is deemed to have been made once the Product has been handed over to an individual at your chosen delivery address, including when this is done by the courier, as recorded in the tracking system used by the courier.
It is your responsibility as Purchaser, to ensure that you or your intended gift recipient (if applicable) check the package upon arrival and make any reservations and claims which might appear to be justified, or even to refuse the package, if it is likely to have been opened or if it shows clear traces of damage. The aforesaid reservations and claims must be sent to the courier by registered letter (with acknowledgement of receipt) and a copy must simultaneously be sent to FashionHub.
9.5 Lost Packages
If neither the depot nor the tracking system (in the "My Delivery" section) show any trace of the package, you must then get in touch with FashionHub by way of email to email@example.com or by contacting the Call Centre at 011 568 0122.
If the package is found it will then be sent to the specified delivery address, following the normal procedure as set out in this clause 9 (ie delivery of the package or notice of attempted delivery).
If the package is declared to be lost, Fashionhub will notify the Purchaser and refund the Purchaser for the lost package (both the Product purchase price and any delivery charges).
As a Member, the site will enable you to place electronic Pre-Orders for one or more products offered.
You are liable for any Pre-Order payments in advance – ie. you will be required to make payment at the time of placing the Pre-Order.
Your items’ expected shipping date will be included in the information at the bottom of the details tab once you’ve placed your Pre-Order.
When placing multiple orders (normal orders and Pre-Orders in the same basket), your orders will ship out together at the latest date.
If you’d like to avoid this, please add your Pre-Order item to its own basket. This will ensure that your other items are delivered timeously.
In the unlikely event that a supplier’s product delivery is delayed, our contact centre will keep you informed.
All products need to be returned within 7 (working) days of receipt. Please refer to The Returns Policy, which regulates your rights in this regard.

Should you not be satisfied with any Product purchased by you by reason of a defect, incorrect choice of Product, or otherwise, you may, under certain circumstances, be entitled to either be credited, refunded or have the Product repaired or replaced, as the case may be. The Returns Policy regulates your rights in this regard.
