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 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 Zapper or PayFast. 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.
Payment must take place within 48 hours of placing the order or we may cancel it or update it if pricing has changed.
- Door-to-door Courier (via FastWay):
NOTE: Our Door-to-door Courier does not deliver to PO Boxes. Please provide a Street Address at checkout.
Your order will be delivered directly to your door. We currently do not ship to remote locations such as farms and mines.
How long will delivery take?
Typically, we will get the courier to collect your order within 24 hours (provided that you have paid and the funds have cleared). Delivery timeframes for pre-order items are as specified in product description. These timeframes are valid for business days, and take effect from the time your order payment reflects.
All packages are fully trackable and tracking numbers will be provided once your order has been shipped. If you are not in one of the major centres listed, delivery may take 1 or 2 days longer than the above specified times.
What happens if I don’t receive my order?
All orders dispatched from our offices are guaranteed to be delivered. If your order is lost, damaged or stolen, we will either send you a replacement order or we will refund the full order to you. It is at our sole discretion to choose whether to replace or refund the order. This is a fantastic service that we feel is absolutely essential to provide peace-of-mind to our customers.
If any parcel delivered by our couriers appears to be damaged, please be sure to verify both the contents and condition of the consignment in the presence of the courier driver. Phone us immediately if any product is damaged or missing. Liability for any shipments sent from us ends with the obtainment of a clean signature from the consignee upon delivery of the goods and any replacement of the product will only be effected if damage is noted to the courier at the time of delivery.
If a client is not satisfied with a purchase, it can be returned within seven days of the delivery for a full refund, less the shipping costs. Full refunds will only be issued if products are returned unopened and with all packaging and any other materials that were part of the original purchase.
Should an opened product be returned, a 25% re-stocking fee will be charged, provided that all the original packaging and all materials are provided with it. Should an opened item be returned without some or all of the original packaging and materials, Green Office reserves the right, at its sole discretion to levy an additional fee.
Goods returned in opened packaging need to be returned unused and in a condition that is fit for resale. Software and consumables can only be returned if they have not been opened.
All products being shipped back to Green Office are at your risk. Such products should be carefully packed in protective materials where necessary. The package should have the order number and return address clearly marked. Should a product be damaged or lost while being shipped to our offices, Green Office will not be liable for such loss or damage. It is recommended to insure any items that you send to us.
All products sold by Green Office are covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty, which is at least 1 year from the date of order unless otherwise stated.
Should you have a faulty item, contact us and we will assist you by providing you with the details for the return process. In this case, you will be responsible for arranging the delivery of the faulty item back to Green Office, but Green Office will cover the return shipping costs back to you.
In the unlikely event that a product sold by Green Office is DOA (Dead on arrival) or becomes faulty within 30 days of the delivery date, we will arrange for a courier to collect the item from you and will cover the shipping costs both ways.
