Commencement, duration and application

The Orakel South Africa terms and conditions shall commence to apply upon confirmation of order by the client in each instance until the services and/or products and/or orders quoted for and accepted by the client are rendered and/or delivered to the satisfaction of the client and in line with the terms and conditions and until full payment of Orakel South Africa’s invoice(s) have been made by the client in each instance.


Orakel South Africa shall provide the client with a quotation for services and/or products required by the client, of which shall be valid for the period as indicated on the quotation or, in the absence of such period being stipulated, for a period of 30 (thirty) calendar days.

Quotations are subject to the availability of products and/or services and are subject to any increases in price or costs, including currency fluctuations, which may occur before the order is accepted by the client.

Product selection and order

The client is to place orders with Orakel South Africa in writing. Orders shall only be regarded as accepted upon written confirmation thereof by Orakel South Africa. Payment of the deposit by the client does not constitute acceptance of orders.

The client acknowledges that it is the client’s sole responsibility to determine and ensure that the products ordered are correct and suitable to its intended purpose. Orakel South Africa will not be liable, in any manner of form, for incorrect product selection by the client.

Lead times for orders will be deemed to commence on the date and time that Orakel South Africa received all signed off approvals of the artwork and payment of the funds have cleared in Orakel South Africa’s bank account.

No cancellations of an order will be accepted on any branded items, custom made items or specially imported items and the client shall be liable for full payment of the order.

Orders may be cancelled by Orakel South Africa in any case of fortuitous events or any other circumstances whatsoever beyond its control.

Artwork for branded orders

Orakel South Africa will provide the client with an artwork approval via e-mail or another electronic format. The artwork will illustrate the appearance of the client’s logo or other image, as provided to Orakel South Africa by the client, on the chosen product. The client needs to sign off the artwork and no further services will be rendered by Orakel South Africa until Orakel South Africa is in receipt of the duly completed signed off artwork approval.

The client is to partake in the process of reviewing and checking the artwork for spelling mistakes and errors relating to e.g. item colours, sizing, image colour and image locations and is to do so before signing off and approving the artwork/order. Orakel South Africa shall not be responsible or liable for erroneous interpretations of the artwork/order, typographical errors overlooked and later approved by the client and/or any damages suffered by the client as a result of the erroneous artwork/order being printed as accepted and approved by the client.

The client specifically acknowledges that layouts sent in colour via email are not necessarily a true reflection of the colour but a mere indication of what the product will look like due to the variations in computer monitor colouring. Printing colours will be matched as close as possible to Pantone colours or swatches supplied. Orakel South Africa cannot guarantee a 100% colour match due to the different materials used in promotional products.

Payment and release of order

Full costs are to be paid upon request, prior to delivery or collection.

Orakel South Africa may, at its own discretion, in writing and without exception, accept a deposit to process the order into production. The balance of the invoice, along with any additional costs, are to be paid upon request, prior to delivery or collection.
Rush orders, orders for unbranded items and orders for special import products require full payment of the order to reflect in the bank account of Orakel South Africa before Orakel South Africa shall confirm the order.

Orakel South Africa accepts payment by way of electronic funds transfer. Orders will only be proceeded with or released once the payment has cleared in the bank account of Orakel South Africa.

Orakel South Africa may, at its sole discretion, extend a 30 (thirty) day incidental credit facility to the client and may, at its sole discretion, amend or withdraw such facility. Incidental credit facilities are to be approved in writing. Interest of 2% (two per centum) will be incurred on all overdue amounts.

Orders will only be released for collection or dispatched for delivery once payment in full, including interest, if applicable, reflects in Orakel South Africa’s bank account.

Collection and delivery

Delivery times quoted are estimated times only. Orakel South Africa accepts no responsibility whatsoever for any loss or damages caused by late delivery or non-delivery, howsoever caused or arising and the client specifically indemnifies Orakel South Africa as such.

The risk in the goods shall pass to the client upon the goods being loaded for delivery to the client’s chosen premises/specified destination.

If goods have to be re-delivered due to refusal to accept delivery or being undeliverable or unclaimed due to incorrect address details provided by the client or for any other reason due to the client’s action/omission, the client will be invoiced for any additional delivery costs.

The client must report, by recorded delivery, to the carrier any reservations the client may have concerning the state of the goods or their packaging, within 24 (twenty-four) hours of the delivery time. A copy of these reservations, including a picture (if possible), must be sent to Orakel South Africa within the same time frame. In the absence of notice accordingly, the client shall be deemed to have received and have accepted the goods in good order and condition as dispatched, delivered and invoiced by Orakel South Africa.

The client is expected to inspect the goods on delivery and to verify specifications and quantity. Goods may not be returned, and deliveries may not be refused except by prior arrangement with Orakel South Africa. If any goods sold to the client do not accord with specifications, the client shall notify Orakel South Africa in writing immediately upon the defect becoming known to the client and, provided the client does so within 24 (twenty-four) hours from the time of delivery of the defective goods to the client. Orakel South Africa may, at its discretion, replace any goods which were sold by Orakel South Africa directly to the client and which goods are not in accordance with Orakel South Africa’s specifications.

Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk, ownership of the goods remains vested in Orakel South Africa until such time as the client shall have effected full payment, including any related costs, in accordance with the invoice.


It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that goods are returned to a designated collection point in its original packaging, regardless of the reason for the returns.

All requests for returns or credit must be made in writing by the client. No items may be returned or exchanged unless prior written authorisation has been obtained from Orakel South Africa.
Orakel South Africa may replace any goods which were sold by Orakel South Africa directly to the client and which goods are not in accordance with specifications, or alternatively (provided that the goods have not been damaged in any way whatsoever subsequent to it being dispatched or delivered to the client, as the case may be), at Orakel South Africa’s option, Orakel South Africa shall be entitled to take the goods back, refunding the client with the purchase price paid or by way of credit in favour of the client.

Any returns or replacements for incorrect goods, not limited to incorrect branding, should be initiated in writing by the client, in no more than five (5) days from receiving the order. Any complaint received after the five (5) day mark will be investigated, but we cannot guarantee a resolve.
