10 SMS Notifications
We may use your cellphone number for the exclusive purpose of transactional updates with regards to delivery or collection of orders you place on our website. We will not contact you via SMS related to any marketing matter.
Most items listed on this website are not held in stock at our premises (unless otherwise stated) and are rather ordered from various suppliers as orders are placed. While we constantly update the site's prices and product stock levels based on information from our suppliers, it is recommended that you wait for an email or phone-call from us before making payment for any orders placed on the website. We will also give you an estimated delivery time. Certain items such as fully-assembled PCs may have a slightly longer lead-time (due to the fact that they'll need to be assembled and tested). Should any item not be in stock with our suppliers, we will contact you to suggest a substitute product. At this point, you may accept the substitute, place the item on backorder or cancel the item from your order.
Once the order has been confirmed, you can make payment via EFT or cash deposit. These are the only payment methods that we accept currently. Orders will be placed with our suppliers once proof of payment has been received and shipped once the payment reflects in our bank account. Due to having accounts with all the major SA banks, we can process most EFTs immediately. This allows us to get products shipped to you much quicker when you make payment via EFT.
Payment must take place within 48 hours of placing the order or we may cancel it or update it if pricing has changed.

Should a product be damaged while being shipped to our offices; Platinum Computers will not be liable for the damages. It is recommended to insure any items that you send to us.
All orders cancelled by the client prior to shipping (being prior to fulfilment), for which payment has been received by Platinum Computers, will be refunded to the client in full including any delivery charges quoted. Accordingly, for the avoidance of any doubt, all payments made by the client and received by Platinum Computers are fully refundable deposits until the order is shipped (“fulfilled”) by Platinum Computers!

In this case, the customer will be responsible for arranging delivery of the faulty item back to Platinum Computers, but Platinum Computers will cover the return shipping costs back to the customer.
In the unlikely event that a product sold by Platinum Computers is DOA (Dead on arrival) or becomes faulty within 7 days of the delivery date, we will arrange for a courier to collect the item from you and will cover the shipping costs both ways.
