2. Prices and delivery charges 

 

All prices displayed on the Site are non-negotiable and are determined by the vendor, and subjected to a mark-up by Padstal. All prices are shown in Namibian Dollars.

 

Delivery within Windhoek, not including surrounding areas such as Finkenstein Estate, Omeya, Brakwater or Elisenheim, shall be free of charge. Delivery to the surrounding areas shall be free of charge where the order exceeds N$500.00 (Five Hundred Namibia Dollars) in value. 

 

The delivery charge for each order may vary depending on the size or weight of your order. An estimated cost for each delivery is indicated during the check-out process. There may be additional charges if Padstal has to make more than one delivery on a given order.

 

3. Ordering

Once you have placed your order, you will receive an email confirmation provided you have given Padstal this information. If, for any reason, we are unable to fulfil your order, we will let you know at the earliest opportunity. If we have already received payment for such order, we will attempt to refund the applicable amount using the same method used to make the payment. If, for any reason, alternative arrangements are necessary, Padstal will notify the customer and request any additional information as may be necessary to settle the refund. 

 

4. Delivery

 

Padstal exercises the utmost diligence in accepting and processing orders, and will endeavour to deliver your order to your chosen address in the Republic of Namibia. Though Padstal aims to deliver within the communicated time frame, delivery may take longer due to unexpected events, or logistical or technical difficulties. In the unlikely event that your delivery exceeds 30 days from the communicated date of delivery, the customer may cancel the order. 

 

Padstal Namibia will endeavour to ensure that all goods ordered by you are supplied to you. However, please be aware that our stocks can fluctuate throughout the day due to sales demand, so an item indicated as “in stock” when you place your order may, in fact, be out of stock. Unfortunately, we cannot process back-orders, so in this event, we will make every effort to contact you by email or phone immediately to notify you of the lead time.

 

In this circumstance we will also offer you various options including:

a) cancel the order in return for a full refund;

b) accept a substitute product (price differences will be calculated);

c) accept no substitute and retain a credit towards your next purchase.

 

Padstal reserves the right to cancel any order for any reason whatsoever. Should this happen, any amounts already paid by the customer shall be refunded to the customer. 

 

5. Cancellation of the order

 

If you wish to cancel or change an order, please get in touch with Padstal as soon as possible. If the order has not been dispatched, Padstal will endeavour accommodate your changes. 

 

If you wish to cancel an order, a full refund will be issued, minus any transaction and/or other applicable fees incurred by Padstal due to the cancellation of the order. If your order has already been dispatched you will be unable to cancel your order.

 

6. Returns

 

Padstal shall refund any returned items provided that all returned items are returned in the same condition they were in when delivered to the customer. The returned items should not be damaged, soiled, washed, altered or worn, consumed, and any labels or tags should be intact.

Padstal will not disclose, sell or rent your personal information to third parties without your consent unless it is compelled to do so by law.

14. COVID-19 

 

Padstal will take all reasonable measures to ensure customer safety in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this regard, the customer indemnifies and holds harmless Padstal and its affiliates, employees, agents, representatives and third-party providers for any and all claims and liabilities which may arise from the customer’s use of the Site and Padstal’s delivery systems.  

 

Relatedly, due to the legal uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the often-changing regulations applicable thereto, Padstal’s delivery times may be affected, and/or Padstal may be rendered unable to complete a given delivery until well after the predicted delivery date. Although Padstal intends to apply for essential service provider status to prevent this from happening, Padstal reserves the right to cancel any affected orders and refund any amounts already paid.
