I. Searching for a product
You can search an item in 2 ways:
Option 1: Search using the search box on the website or app
For example if you need a television, you can search using the short form ‘tv’ since it’s the most commonly used and it will bring you all TV’s from different brands available on the website.
But if you need a specific brand, search using the brand and keyword eg Samsung tv.
You can narrow the search as much as you want by adding the specifications e.g. Samsung digital tv 49”
Option 2: Search by category
Click on ‘shop on category’ on the top left of the homepage to view the categories available on the website and the items under the categories.
II. Things to note before placing an order
Before placing an order, we recommend:
1. - Carefully checking the information of the product which includes the description, features, sizes and picture.
2. - Checking if the product has stock- Products that have stock usually have the ‘buy now option’ but those with no stock usually say ‘inventory shortage’. Our website will not allow you to place an order on an item that does not have stock unless it’s a pre-sale order and it will be clearly indicated.
In case you place an item on cart for more than 3 hours, the product stock will be released and product can be ordered by another person.
If you need more information, contact our customer care or chat online with us on our website.
