Where an order has been affected by such error, you will be notified accordingly.


It is important to note that buying goods over the internet provides a different shopping experience from buying in-store. In particular you should be aware that:

  • the colours of goods as shown on the website will depend on different factors such as your type of monitor – including your display settings;
  • the sizes and shapes of the goods may differ in real life from how they appear on your screen. We provide dimensions and measurements in the descriptions of the goods and it is your responsibility to check that the actual size of each item is suitable for your purpose;
  • pictures and images on the website are for illustration purposes only. For an accurate description of any item and details of what is included with the item, you need to read the corresponding written description;
  • all goods are subject to availability and at different points such as when the goods are out of stock or any other problems concerning availability, we may not be able to supply your order. We reserve the right to withdraw any goods from sale at any time, and our only liability to you for withdrawing any goods will be to refund to you any monies paid to us in respect of those goods which we are no longer able to supply;
  • we will do our best to deliver your goods in accordance with the delivery date set out in our final delivery advice email, but please note that all delivery dates given by FRATI Shop Online (whether on the website, over the phone or by email) are estimates only and delivery dates may vary.

Eligibility to order goods

Goods are to be purchase from FRATI Shop Online if you are aged 18 years or above, and are resident in Nigeria. You will need an active email address and a telephone number at which you can be easily contacted.


Placing your order

Your order constitutes an offer to purchase goods from us. Where you order more than one item your order comprises a series of offers for each item individually.


Our order acknowledgement webpage and email set out the final details of your order which you have submitted to FRATI Shop Online. Please take care when placing your order, as you will be unable to add to or amend your order once the Order Acknowledgement email has been sent to you.

The order acknowledgement contains details of the goods you have ordered, the total cost of the order including delivery, and an order number. You should print off a copy of the Order Acknowledgment email, and a copy of these general terms and conditions and the returns policy and keep them safe. You will need to refer to these details when contacting us about your order.

Please note that the Order Acknowledgement is simply an acknowledgement that your order has been received by FRATI Shop Online; it does not indicate that we have accepted your order and does not form a binding contract.


Order acceptance


Until goods have been dispatched, no contract will have been formed between you and us. Please be aware that different consideration/rights apply to goods that are made to order, see our returns policy for more details.


Although we hope to be able to supply all goods ordered, we reserve the right, at our discretion and without reason, to decline any offer at any time before it has been accepted. Should we refuse your order we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible.

Payment


You can pay for your goods by any of the following methods

  • Payment at the ATM and at all Banks in Nigeria are acceptable
  • we do not offer a ‘cash on delivery’ option.


We will take payment from your card at the time you place your order. We will contact you if we have any problems taking payment from the card details you provide during the order process. Taking payment does not mean we have accepted your order and, in the event of our not accepting your order, a full refund will be given as soon as reasonably possible (and in any event within 14 days of our advising you that your order has not been accepted).


Pricing


unless otherwise stated, all prices shown on FRATI Shop Online are inclusive of VAT and other applicable taxes. The prices shown do not include the delivery fee; this will be added to your total order price in accordance with paragraph below.


Except where otherwise set out in these general terms and conditions, the price payable by you for the goods is the price given by FRATI Shop Online at the time you placed your order.

In most cases the delivery fee payable for your order will be that which is given by FRATI Shop Online at the time you placed your order. The delivery fee will be calculated according to your location, the weight, size, nature and value of your goods.


Pricing errors


Whilst we try to ensure that all the prices on FRATI Shop Online are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods you ordered we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible. You will then be given the option of re-confirming your order at the correct price or cancelling your order.


If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email.


If you decide to cancel your order after we have informed you of a pricing error and you have already paid for the goods, a full refund will be made to you as soon as reasonably possible (and in any event within thirty (30) days of cancellation).


Delivery


These are the terms and conditions (the “Delivery Terms”) which apply to the delivery of the goods purchased by you from us either online at www.fratishop.com or in one of our stores (the “home delivery service”).


The Home Delivery Service is provided by FRATI Limited (referred to here as “FRATI”, “we”, “us” and “our”). When we refer to “you” and “your” we mean the purchaser of the goods and user of the Home Delivery Service.


We may sub-contract our obligations for the Home Delivery Service to transport service providers of our choice, but we will nevertheless remain responsible for the performance of the Home Delivery Service to you.


We reserve the right to change the terms of Delivery at any time. Any changes to these terms will be effective for all new deliveries placed after the change is published on our website. You should check the Delivery Terms posted on the FRATI website before each new delivery – they may have changed since your last visit.


Location of deliveries


We will deliver to the delivery address specified for delivery. The location must be within Nigeria. The location must be accessible by road. It is your responsibility to be available to accept delivery at the delivery address or location on the day of delivery.

Pricing


In most cases the delivery fee payable by you for your order will be that which is given by FRATI Shop Online at the time you place your order. The delivery fee can be calculated according to your location, the weight, size, nature and value of your goods.


FRATI’s Delivery Restrictions


Some of our products may be larger than you may have expected, particularly sofas. Please check the measurements of the goods you are buying to make sure there is enough space at the delivery address for delivery to take place and that once the product is built, it will fit into your desired space/room. Prior to the delivery, you must ensure that there is sufficient access and space to complete the delivery and that all staircases and lifts providing access are suitable for the delivery. You must ensure that your property and the delivery area are safe for delivery staff. All fragile items which could be damaged during the delivery, such as lights, vases, pictures etc., should be removed.

To ensure the smooth delivery of your order, you must give us as much detail as possible in advance about particular features of the delivery address which may affect the delivery (e.g. Will there be time to unload / load? Are there any height, width or weight restrictions? Are there any parking restrictions? Will delivery be at non-ground floor level? Is access to the delivery location made difficult due to narrow doors or staircases?) If the delivery is to a business address, are there any restrictions in terms of the opening hours?


If you provide us with incomplete, incorrect or inaccurate information or instructions, we may cancel the delivery by giving you notice.


If you cancel your order before delivery, we will refund the purchase price of the goods and the delivery fee but we may charge a return fee which will be the same amount you paid for delivery. Every effort will be made to deliver items to your choice location, provided it is safe and practical to do so.


Delivery staff will carry out a risk assessment before moving any products and assess the health and safety risks on a case by case basis. Delivery staff will not move any products other than those agreed and documented in the delivery confirmation and shall not move any products where to do so is deemed to constitute a safety risk following the risk assessment.

Delivery staff are not permitted to and shall not: remove doors, windows, doorframes etc in order to complete the delivery (if these measures are required they must be undertaken before delivery takes place; we will not carry any specialised lifting equipment); unpack or construct delivered items or remove any packaging; or remove their footwear whilst making deliveries (if you are concerned about possible damage to carpets or laminate flooring, you should ensure that the adequate protective sheets are provided to cover the floors in question).

Where it is a space on the upper floor and the delivery staff deems it unsafe to carry the items upstairs then an alternative room will be agreed with you. If our delivery staff reasonably considers that delivery to the location of your choice is likely to cause damage to the goods or to your property, they will inform you and record the concern on the delivery document. You may accept delivery in spite of such concern but we will not be liable for any damage caused to the goods or your property as a consequence of our attempting delivery on your instructions, (provided that reasonable care is taken in delivering the goods).


Delivery Arrangements


Delivery will take place at the delivery address specified by you either during the online order process (if you ordered online) or on the sales receipts (if you ordered in store). We ask you to provide us with two telephone numbers so we can contact you easily and advise you of your delivery time.


You are solely responsible for ensuring that we are able to make delivery to the selected address and that you are available to accept delivery at this address on the delivery date. Please try to inform us as soon as possible if you know that you are not going to be in to accept delivery. We shall not be liable in respect of any delay in delivery as a result of any act or omission by you.


If you are not personally available to accept delivery, you may appoint a representative to do so in your place. The representative must be an adult capable of receiving delivery on your behalf, and you agree that we will be entitled to rely on the representative’s instructions as if they were your own. Delivery staff are not permitted to leave any items that have not been signed for.

On delivery, you will be asked to examine the goods, check the condition of the packaging and whether the correct numbers of packages have been delivered. You will be asked to sign the delivery document confirming that the delivery has taken place, the number of items delivered, that delivery of the goods has not caused any damage to your property, that items are delivered “free of visible damage” and that you are happy with the service you have received. If there is obvious damage or items are missing or incorrect, you should record this on the delivery document. Missing items will be re-ordered and damaged/incorrect items will be returned and replaced and delivered free of charge. This will not affect your legal right to notify us at a later date if you subsequently find a defect in your goods. You must let us know about any damaged, missing and/or incorrect goods within a reasonable period of time after you have had an opportunity to inspect the goods. If you refuse to sign the delivery document, this will be taken as refusal to accept delivery.


Once the goods have been delivered to you (or your representative), you become the owner of those goods and from that point they will be at your risk. This means you will be liable for any subsequent damage, loss or destruction.


Damaged Items

Where items within the packaging are faulty or damaged (whether before or during delivery), you are to notify FRATI customer services of such fault or damage using the telephone number stated on the sales receipt (for in store orders) or in our delivery advice email / on our website (for online orders) as soon as possible after delivery.


Any damaged product/package must be retained for inspection at a later date. Should you dispose of any damaged product/package before we have had the opportunity to inspect it, then this could affect any claim for replacement.


Where it is established that we are responsible for damage to a delivered item, we will replace the damaged item or if we are unable to do so, we will reimburse you with the full amount you have paid for the product together with any delivery charges.


We will not accept responsibility for any items that are damaged during the delivery process to the extent that such damage is your fault.


Our Liability


In the event of any unforeseen circumstances (including without limitation lorry breakdown, traffic accident, major traffic delays or severe weather) we will do our best to contact you to rearrange an alternative delivery timeslot or date. We will not be responsible for any losses incurred due to a delay in delivery arising out of any event beyond our control.

If we fail to comply with these Delivery Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of the Delivery Terms or our negligence. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of our breach or if they were contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into this contract.


If we are providing Home Delivery Services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us in the course of our performance. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that pre-dated our performance of the Home Delivery Services.


You agree not to use the Home Delivery Services for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of revenue, loss of data, loss of anticipated savings, loss of business, business interruption, loss of goodwill or loss of business opportunity or for any injury to your reputation.



We do not exclude or limit our liability in any way for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors;
