You will be asked for your credentials (your username and password) every time you shop online with us. It is your responsibility to keep your credentials private and secure and not share them with anyone. Only authorised users may access their online profile with their credentials.

Goods and Pricing
Goods subject to availability
All goods displayed on our website are subject to availability. If any goods you ordered are not immediately available or are not available at all, we will let you know as soon as possible. Goods are only available for delivery in South Africa.
The stated prices on our website are in South African Rand (ZAR), include VAT and are only valid and effective in South Africa.
We will use our best efforts to accurately display the goods, specifically regarding their colour, description and price. Please remember however that the way you see the goods is also dependent on the device that you are using to access our website and we cannot guarantee that the goods you receive, will look exactly as you have seen it.
Your transaction will only be completed, and you will become the owner of the goods:
- once we receive payment from you, and
- when the goods that you have ordered have been delivered to you (or when you have collected the goods).
Payments can be made via Visa or MasterCard or via bank transfer into the Mr. Tekkie bank account, the details of which will be available on request. Once we have received payment and the goods have been delivered to you, the transaction is complete, and you assume all risk and full responsibility for the goods. We reserve the right to not process an order or to cancel an existing order (partially or completely) if there has been an error. Errors include the goods no longer being available, incorrect price or description of the goods. We will inform you of such errors as soon as we become aware of them. We will refund you the Rand value that you have paid, only if you have already paid for the cancelled order. We will not be liable for any other loss or claim relating to a transaction based on any error.
Delivery, Collection and Storage
We will charge a delivery fee for every order you place, which will be billed at checkout, as follows:
- R120.00 (One hundred and Twenty Rand) for orders under R799
- Goods will be delivered within 4 to 7 working days, after receiving payment.
Additional delivery charges
Delivery fees may change at any time without notice to you. The delivery fee applicable to your order will be communicated to you and must be paid when you place an order. For queries regarding delivery, please call or email our Customer Services on 010 300 6888 or email@example.com. During normal business hours, Mon-Fri.
We will arrange for delivery to the delivery address that you provided to us. We are not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of the goods once we have delivered the goods to the delivery address you have provided to us and you (or a representative) have signed for the goods. We deliver between 09:00 and 17:00 on weekdays (Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays).
We will always do what is reasonably possible (but cannot guarantee that we will be able) to ensure that delivery happens on the agreed date. The delivery date is subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control. We will notify you should there be any delivery-related problems and we are unable to deliver on the agreed date.
Goods will be delivered within 4 to 7 working days, after receiving payment.
We cannot guarantee the availability of stock but will use reasonable efforts to ensure that stock is available. We will notify you when goods are no longer available after you have placed an order. We will refund you the Rand value for the goods you have purchased, should the goods no longer be available.
Accepting your delivery
If you are unable to accept the goods yourself, please ensure that you or your authorised representative are available at the delivery address. If anyone other than you accept delivery of the goods at the delivery address, they are presumed to be authorised to accept the goods on your behalf. On delivery we will require that you or your authorised representative sign for the goods, write down your or their name and produce a form of identification (for example an original ID or driver’s licence). This is to confirm that the goods have been received. If no one is at the delivery address to accept delivery, we will contact you to arrange an alternative time. You will be charged additional delivery charges if we cannot deliver the goods to you due to access problems or if you are not available when we deliver the goods. If we are unable to deliver the goods to you after three attempts, or should we deem it appropriate under the circumstances, we reserve the right to cancel your order, deduct charges we have incurred for failed deliveries or additional storage, and refund the balance due to you.
Inspecting the goods
You or your authorised representative must inspect the goods when they are delivered to you. If you or your authorised representative are satisfied that the goods are in good condition and not damaged, you or your representative must sign the delivery slip, which will be proof that the goods have been delivered in a good, undamaged condition.
If the goods are damaged in any way, you or your authorised representative must note the reason for rejecting the goods and the nature of the damage on the delivery slip, notify our Customer Services on 010 300 6888 or firstname.lastname@example.org during normal business hours, Mon-Fri, immediately and not accept delivery of the goods. If you do not note the reason for rejecting the goods and the nature of the damage on the delivery slip, we are entitled to regard the goods as if they were in good condition and not damaged when delivered to you.
We make use of courier services to deliver the goods to you. Goods will be delivered within 4 to 7 working days, after receiving payment.
