Returns Policy

Returns Policy

We want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied, you can return the product to us and we will either repair/replace it, or credit your account, subject to the below terms.

This Policy applies to products bought from Local Llama itself and from Third Party Sellers. Please note that eBooks and Online Course Codes are dealt with separately in section 5 below.

Certain parts of this Policy do not apply to Unboxed Deals, reconditioned products or used products, and this is indicated in the relevant sections below. Unboxed Deals are returned products that are offered for sale at discounted prices, because their original packaging is damaged, unsealed or missing, or the products show signs of handling and/or re-packaging.

This Policy forms part of the Local Llama Terms and Conditions, and so words defined in the Terms and Conditions have the same meaning in this Policy, unless the context indicates otherwise. Nothing in this Policy is intended to limit your statutory rights in any way.

Preparing your products for a return

To ensure your request is processed as quickly as possible you are responsible for the following when returning your products;

路聽 聽 聽 聽package your products safely and securely for protection during transit;

路聽 聽 聽 聽clearly mark your return reference number on the outside of the parcel; and

路聽 聽 聽 聽include all accessories and parts that were sold with the product.

Failure to adhere to any of these requirements could delay the processing of your request or result in its decline altogether.

Want to exchange?

Fashion and sportswear products can be exchanged for a different size or colour variation, provided that such variation is available. An Unboxed Deal, reconditioned product or used product can only be exchanged for a variation of the same Unboxed Deal, reconditioned product or used product, if such variation is available. In such a case, we will collect the product from you and deliver the requested product to you at no charge. If such variation is not available, we will credit your account with the purchase price of the product within 10 days of the return (or refund you if that is your preference).

We are entitled to inspect the product to validate your return

Not what you ordered?

If we accidentally deliver the wrong product to you, or if the product is not as described on the Website, please notify us and we will collect the product from you at no charge. If the product is missing any accessories or parts, you will need to follow the process set out in section 2 below. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice deliver the correct product to you as soon as possible (if the correct product is available); or credit your account with the purchase price of the product within 10 days of the return (or refund you if that is your preference).

2: Products damaged on delivery

Should a product be damaged or missing any parts or accessories at the time of delivery / collection, please notify us within 7 days of such delivery / collection by logging a return on the Website.

We will arrange to collect the product from you at no charge. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice repair / replace the product as soon as possible (if such repair is possible/ we have the same product in stock to use as a replacement) or credit your account with the purchase price of the product (or refund you if that is your preference).

3: Defective products

We do our best to ensure that the products we deliver to you are of a high quality and in good working order and without defects.

What is a defect? A defect is a material imperfection in the manufacture of a product or any characteristic of a product, which makes the product less acceptable than one would reasonably be entitled to expect in the circumstances. Please refer to our FAQs for some examples.

The following will NOT be regarded as defects and will not entitle you to a return under this section 3:

路聽 聽 聽 聽faults resulting from normal wear and tear;

路聽 聽 聽 聽damage arising from negligence, user abuse or incorrect usage of the product;

路聽 聽 聽 聽damage arising from electrical surges or sea air corrosion;

路聽 聽 聽 聽damage arising from a failure to adequately care for the product;

路聽 聽 聽 聽damage arising from unauthorized alterations to the product;

路聽 聽 聽 聽where the specifications of a product, although accurately described on the Website and generally fit for its intended purpose, do not suit you; and

路聽 聽 聽 聽in relation to Unboxed Deals or used products, signs of handling and/or repackaging.

Extended Warranty

You may have purchased a product and included an extended warranty that extends beyond the Supplier Warranty. If such a product turns out to be defective after the supplier warranty has expired and before the Extended Warranty expires, please notify us as soon as reasonably possible after you become aware of the defect, but in any event within the extended warranty period.

You can do so by logging a return on the Website, and we will facilitate your return of the product to the supplier at no charge. Unfortunately, we cannot facilitate returns that fall outside of the extended warranty period.

Please note that any extended warranty is subject to whatever terms and conditions the supplier or manufacturer may impose. These are usually stated in a brochure or leaflet inside or on the product packaging. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of any such terms and conditions.

It is also important to note that it will be in the supplier or manufacturer鈥檚 discretion what remedy it can offer you. Local Llama is under no obligation to provide you with a credit, repair / replacement, as your remedy lies with the supplier or manufacturer. However, since we want your experience to be as good as possible, if the supplier or manufacturer has offered you a repair / replacement within the applicable extended supplier warranty and it takes longer than 21 days, we will get in touch with you to see if you would rather receive a credit / refund directly from us.

PLEASE NOTE: Unboxed Deals, certain reconditioned products and used products do not have extended supplier warranties and this will be made clear on the product description page.

Direct Warranty

A direct warranty product is a product for which the relevant manufacturer wishes to manage defective returns itself, directly with the customer, and not through Local Llama.

If a direct warranty product turns out to be defective or otherwise of poor quality, please notify us and we will provide you with the relevant manufacturer鈥檚 contact details. Alternatively, you can notify the relevant manufacturer directly if you already have its details. The relevant manufacturer will then assist you further, but if you have any difficulty, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you where we can.

Damaged or defective Large Appliances items can be returned within 7 days in accordance with our returns policy. After 7 days the supplier will come to you to inspect the product and assist you with a possible repair, replacement or refund. In the event of a refund, it will be done by Local Llama. Our Customer Service Team will provide you with the supplier details when you as customer log the problem.

Other than this, the same limits and general principles of the extended warranty apply to direct warranty products.

4: Gift Vouchers & Coupons

There are two types of Coupons: a Coupon with a fixed amount of a discount, e.g. R100 off (鈥淔ixed Coupon鈥), and a Coupon with a percentage discount, e.g. 10% off (鈥淧ercentage Coupon鈥).

Where you have used a Fixed Coupon to pay for an order, and you or Local Llama later cancels your order (or part thereof) prior to delivery of the relevant product(s), or you log a return of one or more products for a credit in accordance with the Returns Policy, the value of the Fixed Coupon will be deducted off the purchase price of the cancelled or returned product(s) (as applicable), and we will credit your account for the balance, if any (or refund you if that is your preference). We will also provide you with a replacement Fixed Coupon of the same value as the original Fixed Coupon used. Local Llama may in its sole discretion impose restrictions on the use of the replacement Fixed Coupon. For any subsequent cancellations or returns arising out of the same order, we will credit your account as normal with the value of the returned product (or refund you if that is your preference).

Where you have used a Percentage Coupon to pay for an order, and you or Local Llama later cancels your order (or part thereof) prior to delivery of the relevant product(s), or you log a return of one or more products for a credit in accordance with the Returns Policy, the value of the discount received using the Percentage Coupon will be deducted off the purchase price of the cancelled or returned product(s) (as applicable), and we will credit your account for the balance, if any (or refund you if that is your preference). We will also provide you with a replacement Fixed Coupon of the same value as the discount received using the original Percentage Coupon. Local Llama may in its sole discretion impose restrictions on the use of the replacement Fixed Coupon. For any subsequent cancellations or returns arising out of the same order, we will credit your account as normal with the value of the returned product (or refund you if that is your preference).

Wherever you have used a Gift Voucher to purchase a product that you later return for a refund in accordance with the Policy, we cannot refund you in cash for that portion of the purchase price which you paid using the Gift Voucher, but we will credit your account.

5: eBooks and Online Course Code Returns

eBooks and Online Course Codes are treated differently to other products when it comes to returns, given their digital nature and the fact that technical knowledge of eBooks and/or the Online Course registration process may be required to assist you if the eBook or its Link, or Online Course Code does not work. Once you purchase an eBook or Online Course Code, we will only allow you to return it if defective.

Any defect in an eBook or its Link shall be dealt with as follows:

路聽 聽 聽 聽Should you experience any problems in using the Link to access the eBook or in utilising the Online Course Code, in accessing, opening or reading the eBook / Online Course Code, or if the eBook / Online Course Code is defective in some other way (missing pages, incorrect book, code does not work etc), please report the problem to us as soon as reasonably possible after you become aware of the problem, but in any event within 6 months of purchase. This will create a support request for you.

路聽 聽 聽 聽We will then investigate the possible cause/s of the problem and how to rectify them. We may need to liaise with the relevant service providers to assess and rectify the problem or to issue you with a new Link or Online Course Code so that you can get a replacement eBook of the same title or a replacement Online Course Code, as the case may be.

路聽 聽 聽 聽If the eBook or Online Course Code is defective, we will at your choice replace it (if such replacement is possible) or credit your account with the purchase price of the eBook or Online Course Code (or refund you if that is your preference).

6: Bundles

There are two types of bundles: a bundle consisting of products that either we or you (as provided on our website) have combined together in a single bundle (鈥淏undle Deal鈥); or a bundle compiled by our supplier and supplied to us as a single unit (鈥淧re-packed Bundle鈥). All returns relating to bundles are subject to the terms of this Policy as read with the following provisions:

路聽 聽 聽 聽Bundle Deal 鈥 You may return a Bundle Deal as a whole or any of its component products individually to us. If you qualify for a credit in respect of any component product, we will credit your account with the actual purchase price (after applying any applicable saving or discount) you paid for such a product as displayed in your order history.

路聽 聽 聽 聽Pre-packed Bundle 鈥 Unless otherwise indicated by us, your return of a Pre-packed Bundle will only be accepted if you return all of its component products to us. Failure to do so may result in us declining the return of a Pre-packed Bundle.

7: Charges and refunds

If you return a defective product (excluding eBooks) to us, but you fail to return all of the accessories and parts that were sold with that product, we are entitled to (subject to applicable law) refuse the return, or only to replace the item that you did return; or to estimate the value of the missing accessories and parts and to credit or refund you in respect of the returned item only.

If you return a product (excluding eBooks) that does not comply with this Policy, you may be liable to reimburse Local Llama for the cost of collecting the product from you and the cost of having the product returned to you.

Under no circumstances will donations you make on our Website, or any goodwill credit you may receive from us, be refunded.

Please note that we only refund to the payment method that you originally used 鈥 i.e. payment by credit card will be refunded to the same credit card, payment by Instant EFT or COD (cash on delivery) will be refunded to your nominated bank account.
