To create a user account and use the Service, you must be 18 years or older, and have the legal capacity to enter into a binding contract.

2        Legal relationship of Stockup and Client

Stockup is a software company and operates a unique Service which is limited only to the creation of a platform connecting you, the end user, to our various retail suppliers, allowing you to purchase goods from such suppliers and to connect you to carriers who will deliver the goods to your nominated address.  We do not manufacture or sell goods and we do not transport the goods to you. We are essentially the provider of information which enables you to use the Services. Accordingly we disclaim liability to the fullest extent permitted by law for any direct, indirect or consequential loss, damage, death or injury howsoever arising from the purchase, use, consumption of any goods via the Site or App or from the use of the Services or from the use of any courier services.  Should you have any claims in this respect you may direct them to info@stockup.co.za and we shall forward such claims on to the relevant Supplier.  

When you use the Services to place an order for goods, you authorise the purchase and delivery of those goods from the Suppliers you select. You agree that your purchase is being made from the Supplier you have selected, that that Supplier is the merchant of record, and that title to any goods passes to you when payment is made.  The contract of sale of goods shall always be between yourself and the Supplier and the contract for the carriage of goods shall always be between yourself and the courier and accordingly Stockup hereby cedes, assigns and delegates all right, title and interest that Stockup may incur under such contracts to the Supplier and Client respectively.

3        Payments and Cancellations 

3.1       When you place an order, your payment instruction will be processed by our third party payment service provider whose terms of service and privacy policy will apply to that processing.

3.2       The majority of your payment is for the benefit of the relevant Supplier and / or courier and we only take a handling fee to cover the service we provide in facilitating your order. 

3.3       The amount you will pay for your order will comprise (a) the actual price of the goods (b) delivery fee and (c) to collect; (b) a handling fee which is paid to us.

3.4       On placing your order and completing payment you will be notified when the delivery has been allocated and at key stages as they carry out your order.

3.5       If you decide to cancel your order once it has been confirmed by the Supplier, you may do so by contacting us at orders@stockup.co.za, the following terms apply if you cancel:

3.5.1      If a courier has not yet been assigned, you may cancel without charge;

3.5.2      if a courier has been assigned but they have not yet collected your goods for delivery from your chosen collection point, you may cancel within the first five minutes after collection without charge, after which time you will be charged 50% of the applicable delivery charge. 

3.5.3      If a courier has been assigned and has already collected your goods no cancellation will be possible and the goods will be deemed delivered notwithstanding that actual delivery has not yet occurred. No refunds will be permitted in this instance.

4        Orders 

4.1       You may place orders for goods, which Stockup, the Supplier or Courier may accept or reject. Acceptance of orders depends on the availability of goods, correctness of the information relating to the goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment by Stockup for the goods and whether Stockup is legally permitted to facilitate the purchase of such goods.  To this end the following goods are not permitted for sale on this App:

4.1.1      Alcohol to persons under the age of 18

4.1.2      Schedule 1 – 5 pharmaceuticals

4.1.3      Hazardous substances including but not limited to chemical based detergents, chemical spirits, turpentine, certain glues and adhesive, fuel, paraffin, gas and the like and any items included under the relevant Hazardous Substances legislation.

4.1.4      Fuel and fuel based substances.

4.2       Stockup will indicate on receipt of payment that the order is “finished” and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and the Supplier come into effect. This is regardless of any communication from Stockup stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Stockup will indicate the rejection of your order  by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.

 4.3       Placing items in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such items, and as such, items may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available or the price thereof might change without notice to you. You cannot hold Stockup or the Supplier liable if such items are not available or are not available at the particular price when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage. 

4.4       You acknowledge that stock of all items on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. Stockup will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Site. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When items are no longer available after placing an order, Stockup will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such items.

4.5       You acknowledge and accept that Stockup relies on inventory information supplied by the relevant Supplier and Stockup accordingly bears no liability for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to it. Consequently, should you order any items from a Supplier which are in fact sold-out, any resulting dispute should be resolved between you and the relevant Supplier, your respective rights and obligations being as set out in these Terms and Conditions. 

4.6       Certain items may not be purchased for re-sale. Should we suspect that any items are being purchased for re-sale, we are entitled to cancel your order immediately without notice to you.
