Terms & Conditions

1. Introduction

The Ankara online shop can be accessed at www.myankara.co.za, related mobile sites and applications (“the site”). The site enables buyers to shop for items including clothes, shoes and accessories by selected local and international brands ("the products”) online and have them delivered door-to-door, to your nearest post office or via pick-up points within South Africa. All visitors to the site ("users" or "you") will be able to see the products on offer, but only those who have registered for an account on Ankara ("account holders” or “you”) are able to buy.

Legally binding contract

All users and account holders, including those that buy from the site ("buyers") are bound by these terms and conditions ("T&Cs"). By registering, or using the site at all, you recognise that you've read, accepted and agreed to be bound by these T&Cs. Should there be any clause in these T&Cs that you do not understand, the onus is on you to ask Ankara Textiles to please explain the relevant clause to you before you accept the T&Cs by using or buying from the site.

With whom are you entering into a contract?

The site is owned and run by Ankara Textiles, a division owned by Ankara Textiles(Pty) Ltd, registration number 2016/419817/07, a company incorporated in the Republic of South Africa (herein after referred to as “Ankara”). More information about Ankara Textiles is available at the end of these terms and conditions.

Products and availability

Please note that the stock of all items on offer is limited. Ankara Textiles will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that special offers are brought to an end when stock runs out. If it happens that Ankara Textiles is unable to fulfill any order at the advertised price because stock is sold out, Ankara Textiles will inform you via email and you'll be entitled to a reimbursement for the Rand value you have paid for such product. This is described in more detail under Ankara Textile's Help section,
Delivery and Returns.

More simply put:

Ankara Textiles is an awesome online fashion store, but there are some rules. One, you need to register to shop. Two, there are terms and conditions and when you use the site, we take that to mean that you’ve read, understood and accepted them. Three, as in all the best stores, products do sell out, especially when they’re on special. Should this happen to you, you’ll be refunded the exact Rand value you paid.

2. Buying products

  1. The site allows you, the user, to place electronic orders ("order") for one or more products on offer as long as such products are available and not sold out.
  2. A purchasing contract ("sale") between you and Ankara Textiles only comes into effect once you have fully completed AND submitted the online order form for one or more products in your shopping cart (“cart") AND your payment has been authorised by Ankara Textiles (or has been received into Ankara’s bank account).
  3. The above is dependent on the product being available.
  4. Products on Ankara Textiles cannot be reserved to be bought at a later stage, and placing an item in your cart without completing the order does not amount to a “sale”.
  5. This means that Ankara Textiles may remove any product(s) from your cart before the sale actually takes place, in the event of the product going out of stock.
  6. Ankara Textiles cannot be held responsible if the product(s) you added to your cart have become unavailable when you try to complete the sale.
  7. A tax invoice will be emailed to the email address on your Ankara Textiles profile. A delivery note will be included with your order – please note that no prices are visible on the delivery note.

More simply put:

It’s easy. You add products to your cart, submit your order and soon as we’ve received your payment, we have a deal. There’s just one thing: to give everyone a fair shot at shopping on Ankara Textiles, we cannot reserve the products in your cart. Best check out before someone else does.

3. Cancelling and ending orders

  1. Ankara Textiles reserves the right to refuse processing of payment for any order and/or to cancel any purchase, partially or completely, with notice given to you.
  2. Ankara Textilese will be liable for reimbursing you the rand value paid only if you have already paid for the cancelled order. You have the right to return non-defective products purchased within 30-days of the order being delivered.

More simply put:

Sometimes things don’t work out and an order has to be cancelled. If that happens we’ll be sure to let you know. And sometimes what you bought isn’t exactly what you wanted. No problem. Returns are free within 30 days and we’ll refund you.

4. Fraud

  1. Ankara Textiles reserves the right, in the interest of preventing fraud, to refuse the processing of payment for any order and/or to cancel any purchase, partially or completely.
  2. Ankara Textiles may request documentation to complete the necessary fraud checks and cancel any order where the necessary documentation is not provided in a timely manner.
  3. In the event of a fraudulent purchase being placed on Ankara Textiles, cardholders will be advised to initiate a chargeback via their bank in order to be refunded. Spree does not process refunds for orders suspected of fraud.
  4. Ankara Textiles does not provide order details relating to orders suspected of fraud.

More simply put:

The f-word. Fraud happens. We’re pretty sharp when it comes to sniffing it out, and our response is simple and effective: do the checks, cancel the order, bye.

5. Product Pricing

The price of each product is given on the product information page (“the product page”) on the site. The product price displayed always excludes VAT at 15%.

The Regular Retail Price

  1. The Regular Retail Price (“RRP”) is the standard price that Ankara Textiles charges for the product. The RRP is determined by considering the suppliers’ price, market conditions, and the prices being offered by other local retailers.
  2. When a product is not on sale, on special, or included in a discount promotion, the RRP is the price you will pay when you purchase the product (“purchase price”).
  3. Please note that RRPs can change over the course of several seasons over which the product may be sold. The RRPs applicable at the time the product is introduced may differ from the RRP at the time of your purchase.

The Discount Price

  1. When Ankara Textiles is having a sale, has products in OUTLET, or is running a discount centric promotion on specific products on the site – the discount price is shown on the product’s product page, as well as the Regular Retail Price (“RRP”). The discount price will be shown in red and the RRP will be shown alongside it – but will be crossed out.
  2. When a discount price is shown on the product page, the discount price is the price you will pay when you add the product to your cart at the discounted price, and conclude the sale at the discounted price i.e. the purchase price.

Pricing accuracy

  1. Every reasonable effort will be made to ensure that the RRP and, if applicable, the Discount Price of all products on Ankara Textiles are correct at the time of your purchase. If, however, the product is offered at an erroneous price, Ankara Textiles will not be obliged to supply the said product at the incorrect price.
  2. Ankara Textiles will only be liable to return payment already made by you in the case you choose to cancel the sale once you have been made aware of the correct price.

More simply put:

We try to offer the best prices we can on all our products. From time to time, products are discounted – when we have a sale, when products are moved into the Outlet store, and when we run a promotion. Products on sale and in Outlet display both the original price and the discounted price (in red). However, when products are discounted during a promotion, the amount you save is displayed at checkout after you enter a voucher code. Please note that the only way to be refunded for an incorrectly priced product is if you cancel the sale.
