TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

General

You confirm that you are at least 18 years of age or you are accessing the Site under the supervision of your parent or legal guardian. You agree that if you are unsure of the meaning of any part of the Terms and Conditions of Sale, you will not hesitate to contact us for clarification prior to making a purchase.

 

These Terms and Conditions of Sale fully govern the sale of goods and services purchased on this Site. No extrinsic evidence, whether oral or written, will be incorporated.

 

Formation of Contract

Both parties agree that browsing the website and gathering information regarding the services provided by the seller does not constitute an offer to sell, but merely an invitation to treat. The parties accept that an offer is only made once you have selected the item you intend to purchase, chosen your preferred payment method, proceeded to the checkout and completed the checkout process.

Both parties agree that the acceptance of the offer is not made when the seller contacts you by phone or by email to confirm that the order has been placed online. Your offer is only accepted when we dispatch the product to you and inform you either by email or by phone of the dispatch of your ordered product. Before your order is confirmed, you may be asked to provide additional verification or information, including but not limited to phone number and address, before we accept the order.

 

Please note that there are cases when an order cannot be processed for various reasons. The Site reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order for any reason at any given time, while considering the goods are perishable in nature and of limited lifespan.

 

Acceptance of Electronic Documents

You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

 

Payment and Pricing

Any matter relating to pricing shall be handled and negotiated by the parties involved in the process of transaction, however we can choose to advise users on pricing from time to time. Farmzin or its affiliates will not be held accountable to any pricing or deal negotiated outside Farmzin.com.

We are determined to provide the most accurate pricing information on the Site to our users; however, errors may still occur, such as cases when the price of an item is not displayed correctly on the website. As such, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order. In the event that an item is mispriced, we may, at our own discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.

 

We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and you have paid. In the event that we are unable to provide the services, we will inform you of this as soon as possible. A full refund will be given where you have already paid for the products. Contact the admin for payment methods.

 

Upon agreement between the users (i.e a buyer and a seller) to transact on Farmzin.com, the buyer must contact Farmzin for payment instructions. We strictly advise all users to confirm the payment instructions by contacting Farmzin before making any payment, because Farmzin will not be held accountable for any payment made to an account information not supplied on Farmzin.com.

 

Use of Claim codes

In order to make transactions go easy and well between the two transacting parties (i.e The buyer and the seller), Farmzin.com will always give a special claim code to the buyer after the payment for a purchase has been made which will serve two purposes; (a) A sign of proof the particular buyer has paid partly or wholly for goods/services to be supplied in a stipulated time, ( b) The code must be given to the supplier (seller) in order to claim the payment after the goods/services has been supplied to the buyer (the person/persons) who paid for the purchase. We will generate and give different unique claim codes for different transactions initiated and agreed on between buyers and sellers. Farmzin will only release the payment to the seller upon the availability of the claim code which symbolizes the culmination of a successful trade. Farmzin reserves the right to generate and supply claim codes to users.

 

Use of Voucher Codes

Farmzin.com accepts the use of voucher codes for orders placed online. The marketing voucher codes which are accepted on our Site entitle you at the time of ordering a product to a saving on the order being placed on our Site. Vouchers may also be issued to customers in exchange for advance payments made to us via transfer to our bank accounts for products intended to be purchased on the Site.

 

Our voucher codes may not be exchanged for cash. With the exception of vouchers issued in accordance with our refunds policy and vouchers issued in exchange for advance payments, we reserve the right to cancel or withdraw our voucher codes at any time.

 

Dispute Settlement

Farmzin will solely be in charge of settling disputes between the sellers and buyers on Farmzin.com.  Although we will serve as the moderator for resolving dispute between a payee (buyer) and a seller, Farmzin will not be held accountable for shortcomings on the end of either the buyer or seller on Farmzin.com. Farmzin will use the following parameters to determine who to award the dispute in favour of; Standard and quality of supply or service, description given by the seller to Farmzin.com about the good or service, and the time taken to supply the purchased goods or services. The buyer and the seller both have the right to initiate the dispute protocol, but Farmzin reserves the right to fairly and justly award the settlement in favour of the worthy user.
