Conclusion of sales and availability of stock

BMS may accept or reject an online order for Goods. BMS’s decision will depend on the availability of Goods, the correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation, the price) and receipt of payment or of payment authorisation.

BMS will indicate its acceptance of your order by notifying you that you may collect the Goods. It is only at the point of collection that an agreement of sale between you and BMS will have come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from BMS stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. If BMS rejects your order, it will notify you by cancelling your order after which it will as soon as possible, credit you with any amount already paid by crediting such amount into your profile. Any amount paid in respect of a cancelled order cannot be withdrawn in the form of cash.

Placing Goods in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such Goods, and as such, those Goods may be removed from the shopping basket if the stock is no longer available or the price thereof has changed. BMS is at liberty to change the price of stock without notice to you. If you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage, you cannot hold BMS liable if such Goods are not available or are not available at the previous price

You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. BMS will take all reasonable steps to monitor stock levels and to ensure that when stock is no longer available, offers for that stock are discontinued on the Website. BMS cannot guarantee the availability of stock. If after placing an order, Goods are no longer available, BMS will notify you (via email or cell phone) and will reimburse you for the purchase price of the Goods, by crediting that amount into your profile after which that credit can be used to make further online orders of Goods from the

BMS online store using the Website www.bluffmeatsupply.co.za. The purchase price paid in respect of a cancelled order cannot be withdrawn in the form of cash.
