Secure shopping

Volpes has partnered with the PayU Group, a division of Naspers (NPN), to ensure your shopping experience is secure and easy. PayU is a PCI DSS Level 1gateway and is secured and certified by Verisign and TRUSTe.

Furthermore, Volpes has received an SSL certificate which provides 128-bit encryption allowing safe and secure electronic commerce and communication. All credit card details are encrypted when transmitted to Volpes and stored in a secure environment.

Volpes uses SID for EFT payment transactions. SID uses the most advanced security features available on the Internet and although SID invokes your Internet Banking service, it does not access or store your Internet Banking identifier or password. These are entered directly into your Internet Banking with the usual security provided by your bank. Your bank account access information such as usernames and passwords are not captured or stored by SID or by the Volpes website. Your session occurs directly between your PC and your bank in the same way as if you had logged into your bank’s Internet Banking system separately from any SID transaction. SID may store your bank account number for refund purposes. However, no third party can access or operate your Internet Banking facilities based on this information, or any other information retained by SID.

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. Displaying a price on the website does not constitute an undertaking by us to maintain that price for any length of time.

Agreement of sale

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

An agreement of sale comes into effect when either a credit card authorisation is received from the issuing bank, or a bank transfer is reflected on our bank statement. 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.

Please note that due to the nature of our business and the types of product that we stock, our website will show a product as being available even if only one item is available for sale. If you require a larger quantity than is available, we may not be able to supply additional items at the same price, within the same time frame, or in some cases, at all. For large orders, we would recommend that you contact us directly for assistance.
