We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
We reserve the right to refuse an order. Non-acceptance of an order may, for example, result from one of the following:
- The product ordered being unavailable from stock
- Our inability to obtain authorisation of payment
- The identification of an error within the product information, including price or promotion

We cannot be held responsible for an incorrect address being entered while ordering on our website. If you complete your Order and then notice that the address details are incorrect, please contact us immediately: firstname.lastname@example.org
1.4. Order acceptance and cancellation
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason, whether or not your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has been charged and your order is cancelled, you will receive a full refund.
Once an order has been placed, it cannot be cancelled unless the shipment is unavoidably delayed. In this case, we will do our best to cancel the order if requested by you in writing.
2.1 Payment options
Jessica Merle accepts payment with Payfast and EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer). Note that you are not obliged to have a Payfast account to pay by credit card. For more information please visit www.payfast.co.za for information on Payfast payments. Upon receiving your Order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or does not authorise payment for any reason, then you will be notified of this immediately prior to completing your purchase using the Site at the check-out stage. Your card will be debited once the Order has been accepted. The same applies for EFT payments, the Order will only be dispatched once we receive the funds in our bank account.
