CANCELLATION

When we receive customer orders, we begin processing them immediately. And because we do not hold our own inventory and we only purchase from supermarkets and retail outlets when customers place orders, as soon as customers pay for their orders, we start purchasing their selected items from the supermarkets. The retailers we buy from have a no-return policy so, we in turn, are unable to return any items customers purchase from us to the retailers. Thus, once an order has been paid for, Belle.ng is unable to accept a cancellation of the order, neither is Belle.ng able to process a refund to the customer's bank account. This, however, does not affect your rights to a refund in the event that an incorrect or damaged item is delivered.

RETURNS

f we deliver an incorrect or damaged item (damage that has been caused by us), we will happily replace the item at no additional cost to you. For us to replace such items, customers will need to notify the delivery personnel of their observation at the point of delivery. Once customers have taken delivery of their order and signed confirming this, they take ownership of the items and we shall be unable to accept any returns. For this reason, we ask customers to carefully check and confirm the accuracy of their order with the delivery personnel before acknowledging receipt by signing. We will not accept returns for items that have no material damage to them. Products that are materially intact but whose packaging may have scratches, peels, tearing, dents, discolouration, rust, or any other aesthetic impairment that does not affect the taste, functionality or integrity of the actual product may not be accepted by us as a return.

REFUNDS

If an item you ordered is unavailable, we will make reasonable effort to source them within the next earliest possible time. If, after our checks, the item remains out of stock, any credit due to you will be refunded to a bank account in your name, provided by you within 24 hrs. In instances where your address is not within our delivery coverage locations or we later receive a payment which did not reflect in our account at the time you made it, we may process a refund to your account after deducting relevant bank charges.
