  1. Conclusion of sales and availability of stock
    1. Users may place orders for Goods, which TES or the Third Party Seller may accept or reject. Whether or not TES or the Third Party Seller accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by TES for the Goods or letter of consent where specifically requested by TES.
    2. NOTE: TES or the Third Party Seller will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and TES or the Third Party Seller come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from TES stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. TES will indicate the rejection of your order (by TES itself or the Third Party Seller) by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for amount already paid (excluding the provision of a fee should work already commenced on the order, work done fee).
    3. You may cancel an order within 48 hours (not 2 (two) working days – 2 (two) days) of your payment via the dedicated communications channels available, thereafter the production of your item has already commenced. After delivery or your collection of the Goods, you may return the Goods only in accordance with the Returns Policy below
    4. Placing Goods/items in a shopping cart without completing the purchase cycle (steps) does not constitute an completed order for such Goods, and as such, Goods may be removed from the shopping cart if stock is no longer available or the price thereof might change without notice to you. You cannot hold TES or the Third Party Seller liable if such Goods are not available or are not available at the particular price when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at after 1 one) hour after commencing the cycle.
    5. You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. In the case of Goods for sale by TES, TES will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, TES will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount already paid by you for such unavailable Goods. 
    6. In the case of Goods for sale by a Third Party Seller, TES relies on inventory information supplied by the relevant Third Party Seller and TES accordingly bears no liability for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to it. 
    7. Consequently, should you order any Goods from a Third Party Seller which are in fact sold-out, any resulting dispute should be resolved between you and the relevant Third Party Seller directly; not with TES, your respective rights and obligations being as set out in these T&C’s.
    8. Goods may not be purchased for re-sale. Should TES suspect that any such Goods are being purchased for re-sale, TES are entitled to cancel your order immediately on notice to you.

  1. Daily Deals and other discounted Goods (Flash Sales)
  1.  From time to time, we may offer certain Goods at discounted prices as part of a Daily Deal, Flash Sales, Bundle Deal or any other temporary deal which are explained below (each a “Deal”). 
  2.  These will be subject to certain conditions (as set out in these Terms and/or the Website), which define the scope of the Deal. If you buy a product within the scope of a Deal, you will pay the discounted price for that product (the “Deal Price”).
  3. However, if you buy a product in a manner that falls outside of the scope of a Deal, then you will pay the then current (non-Deal) selling price on the Website (the “Normal Price”), for each product that falls outside the scope of the Deal.
    1. For example: if you buy more than one product in a Daily Deal, you will pay the Deal Price for the first product, but the Normal Price for all products thereafter. 
    2. Alternatively, if you buy a product in combination with any other products that together do not constitute a Bundle Deal, you will pay the Normal Price for all such products falling outside the scope of the relevant Deal.
    3. Should any purchase take place where it is a “Deal”, TES has the right to only exchange an item, not refund the fee paid, refer to the conditions of “refund/exchange” below (Returns Policy).

Please note that Daily Deals have a stock limit and may expire earlier if stock runs out).

Daily Deals quantities are limited and as such, after a Daily Deal is sold out, those particular Goods may be available on the Website at their normal selling prices (but no longer as a Daily Deal).

We do not guarantee a specific saving. The extent of the Daily Deal or discount is at the sole discretion of TES.

Only one of each Daily Deal may be purchased per customer.

Adding a Daily Deal to your cart, or completing your order for a Daily Deal without paying for it, does not reserve the item for you. TES must receive payment from you within 24 (twenty-four) hours of you placing your order for a Daily Deal, otherwise we will cancel your order.

  1. TES will reserve stock for customers in the order in which it receives payment.


  1. The Listed Price shown in respect of Daily Deals and other discounted Goods is the recommended retail price suggested to us by the supplier of the relevant product.

Where a product is offered for sale by a Third Party Seller, the Listed Price may be provided by the Third Party Seller.


  1. Bundle Deals
    1. We may from time to time offer bundle deals for sale under our TES collections and Apparel on the Website (“Bundle Deals“). Each Bundle Deal will consist of two or more products that TES (as provided on the Website) has combined together in a single bundle.

    1. TES will indicate on relevant product pages and checkout pages when Goods are for sale by a Third Party Seller. In such cases TES only provides the platform to facilitate transactions between Third Party Sellers and TES customers. 
    2. TES is neither the buyer nor the seller of these Goods unless otherwise specified.
    3. The Sale formed on acceptance of your order (in accordance with clause 5.2) for Goods that are for sale by a Third Party Seller is therefore solely between the registered user and such Third Party Seller. TES is not a party to that sale.
