What follows in this document describes the terms on which skinnidip.co.za (referred to herein as “SKINNIDIP”, “we”, or “us”, or “our”) offer you (our CUSTOMER) access to our services. Your permission to our service and products, and the licenses granted herein, are expressly conditional upon your acceptance of these Terms of Service (contained in this document). If you visit or shop at skinnidip.co.za or create hyperlinks to skinnidip.co.za, you accept and agree to comply with the most recent version of this agreement in its entirety. The following additional Terms and Conditions, and Policies are hereby incorporated by reference, collectively, as the “Agreement”:

When you place an order, the agreement in force at the time of your placing the order will apply to that order and its related transactions. Any hypertext links from this agreement to text elsewhere on this website shall be deemed to form part of this agreement.

We reserve the right to amend this agreement or any part thereof at any time and without notice. Amendments to this agreement take effect immediately, and your continued use of the website implies your acceptance of the agreement as amended.

Portions of the skinnidip.co.za website are publicly available to all visitors. Other portions of the skinnidip.co.za website are available only to registered members to the website. This Terms of Service applies to both visitors and Members.

  1. Description of Service
  2. SKINNIDIP is a web-based service available from the domain http://skinnidip.co.za. This service provides an online marketplace where new and/or used products are sold, and may include physical as well as digital products.

    Even though SKINNIDIP will do its best to provide a clear image of the product, when you purchase a product you agree to accept it as is. No further liability remains with SKINNIDIP.

  3. Fees
  4. There are no fees for registering or for having an account with skinnidip.co.za. There are no buying obligations – you order what you want, when you want to.

  5. Prices
  6. The prices displayed on the skinnidip.co.za website are non VAT because SKINNIDIP is not registered to levy VAT. Delivery costs are charged separately on checkout and do not form part of the product price displayed.

    Though we endeavour to ensure that the prices displayed on the website are accurate, we offer many products for sale at any time, and it is impossible for us to monitor the prices of all individual products manually. While we go to lengths to ensure that the prices we display are accurate, it is possible that erroneous prices may be displayed from time to time. In such cases, we shall not be obliged to sell the product at the erroneous price, and will correct erroneous prices as soon as we become aware of them. We will contact you to correct such pricing errors on orders, should they occur.

    Displaying a price on the website does not constitute any undertaking by us to maintain that price for any length of time or to have products available for purchase. Should you purchase an item and pay for it and it has withdrawn from our stockholding on skinnidip.co.za, your money will be refunded within 48 (forty eight) hours. We will always endeavour to complete your order at the price quoted at the time that the order was placed, but in cases of erroneous pricing we may cancel all or a portion of your order and fully refund any advance payments that you have made toward the affected products.

    Payments
    If you pay off the website and need to be refunded because of events as described in Pricing paragraph, we will refund the amount directly to you banking account. The process for refund will be as follows:

    We will contact you by email to confirm your banking details in various ways, including proof of ID, proof of ownership of banking account as well as proof of purchase.

    If you have purchased any item with any currency other than the South African Rand, you will be refunded in ZAR irrespective of the exchange rate at that time.

    This is done to safeguard both you and SKINNIDIP.

    Delivery
    For deliveries we use PEP PAXI counter to counter service, specified couriers (door-to-door deliveries). We reserve the right to use any other service providers as needed.

    For larger items with higher weight, we will quote you on shipping fees before accepting your order, and should the shipping fees not be acceptable to you, we will refund your money and cancel the order.

    You need to ensure that you provide us with a valid PEP PAXI Node Code (available online from https://paxi.co.za/locations) or delivery address and contact number and specify/select the correct delivery address and delivery method during the checkout process.

    For further information regarding our delivery rates and terms & conditions, please contact us via email (info@ skinnidip.co.za).

    Please contact us if you do not receive your parcel within the estimated delivery time provided and we will happily assist in locating it, or you can track it online https://paxi.co.za/.

    Other delivery issues
    You accept that in order for us to prove delivery of an order, or part there of, we do not have to prove that you personally received the goods, but that any person at the delivery address specified on your order signed for the delivery.

    In the case of post office or depot collections, we need to prove that somebody, not necessarily you, collected the delivery from the depot or post office. Unfortunately, proof-of-delivery records cannot be retained indefinitely and if a delivery has been dispatched by us and not reported missing by you within six months of us having dispatched it, the package will be deemed to have been delivered without us having to provide proof of delivery.

    Should a delivery be returned to us as undeliverable, we will let you know and request that you make arrangements to either have the parcel collected from us or re-delivered to you. You authorise us to dispose of, donate, or resell the contents of parcels not collected within six months of such request being made.

    Should you choose to collect your order or parts thereof from us, we will let you know once each parcel is ready for collection. You authorise us to dispose of, donate, or resell the contents of parcels not collected within six months of such notification being sent.

    Delivery made to areas outside of the delivery areas of our service provider will be charged at higher rates and must be paid by the customer in addition to the price of the product purchased.

    Delayed delivery
    Most orders are dispatched on time but unfortunately, unexpected delays can occur and we may not be able to dispatch items within the schedule provided. In such a case, we will contact you to make arrangements for delayed delivery.

  7. Agreement of sale / cancellations
  8. An order is placed with us only after you have completed the checkout process on the website. Your order is an offer to purchase the goods from us. We only accept your offer once we have dispatched the goods or you have collected them from us. We do not need to communicate our acceptance to you.

    Placing an item in your cart does not constitute an order and we cannot be held liable if the item is no longer available, or if the price has changed by the time the checkout process is completed.

    We reserve the right to cancel an order at any point in time without giving any reasons. In this case, we shall be liable to refund any money already paid in respect of that order.

    Your order shall be processed as soon as payment from you has cleared in our Banking Account.
