Once stock has been collected / delivered from / by Promovate, we have no control over it. As such we do not accept responsibility for any damages or shortages not reported within 24 hours.
Whilst every effort has been made to fulfill all orders correctly, should you take our goods to an external branding company, we ask that you check all items received BEFORE they get branded. Promovate cannot accept returns on incorrect items which have already been branded regardless of whether it’s Promovate’s fault or not. It may take up to a week to carefully check the stock that is returned and once we are satisfied that stock is fit for resale we will issue the refund or credit note. In the case of stock being sent by courier to regions outside of JHB (i.e. Durban, CT etc), clients have 72 hours from time of collection by courier, to report missing or damaged items. No claims will be entertained thereafter. Once an order on memory sticks has been collected from us, we unfortunately cannot accept a return on it
In the case of cheques deposited into one of our four bank accounts, stock shall not be released until the funds have been cleared in our account. We do not accept cash for any orders since having cash on the premises is a security risk. We accept Mastercard / Visa and Debit cards paid online only (No Amex and Diners). We encourage EFT’s and have facilities at our offices to make Internet payments. Stock will only be released once proof of payment has been received. Please pay into the correct bank account to ensure that your order is cleared immediately. Payments from outside SA take between 4 and 7 working days to clear. Orders will only be released once payment has reflected. For orders that require branding, we will only commence branding once stock and branding has been paid for in full. Please contact your account manager to confirm that they have received your proof of payment, once payment has been made. Promovate cannot be responsible for missed deadlines if you have not confirmed that payment has been received.
Orders collected by courier:
Please request a COLLECTION FORM from your account manager or at our collections department. (email@example.com). Please accurately complete all the required fields on the form and either email back to your account manager or to Collections, or else fax back to the number listed on the form. Clients who complete the form and return it several hours prior to their couriers (or drivers) collecting their orders, experience shorter waiting times and a more efficient experience overall. Please do not send your couriers to collect orders until you have received an email from
Promovate notifying you that your goods are ready for collection. Once the emailed invoice is received, your order is ready for collection. Please ensure that your courier knows who they are collecting for and how many orders they are collecting. All relevant invoice numbers must appear on the collection form. Stock will not be released to couriers until payment is received. Please do not send your courier to collect if you have not effected payment and provided proof thereof to Promovate, and confirmed that we have received the proof of payment.
