Product availability & pricing

Due to the variety of products that we sell we do not keep stock of all items on our premises and sometimes send products directly from our suppliers. We rely on stock information from our systems and suppliers to indicate on the Website where a product is in stock or not.
Futurama will strive to provide you with accurate stock information, but sometimes our suppliers might provide us with the wrong information, or there might be an error on their systems, or ours. This could lead to us confirming stock availability, but when we process the order the stock might not be available. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is not guaranteed.
When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, or the supplier is out of stock at the time of placing an order, Futurama will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such Goods.
Futurama reserves the right to cancel any order in the event that the product ordered is not in stock by us or our suppliers.
All prices displayed on the Website are quoted in South African Rand (ZAR) and include 15% VAT. These prices are valid and effective only in the Republic of South Africa.
Futurama reserves the right, without prior notice, to discontinue or change pricing or specifications on Products and services offered without incurring any liability whatsoever. You acknowledge that pricing may change at any time without prior notice to you.


Whilst all reasonable efforts are taken by Futurama to provide the correct information on the website, in the event that we identify an inadvertent or obvious error in the price, product or service description, images and any other relevant content, Futurama is not obliged to provide you with the affected product or service.
Futurama will make every effort to contact you to alert you of the error. In such circumstances, you are entitled to cancel the purchase and we will provide a full refund for the amount paid.
We shall not be liable for any loss, claim or expense relating to a transaction based on any error.
Futurama shall not be bound by any incorrect information regarding our Goods displayed on any third party websites.
Whilst every effort has been made to display as accurately as possible the colours of the Products that appear on the Website, we cannot guarantee that colour of the products accurately reflect that of the real products.

Links to third-party websites

Futurama provides links to external websites (“Third Party Websites”) in order to provide you with more information about the Goods we sell. You shall not interpret the provision of such hyperlinks as constituting any relationship between Futurama and any linked third party, nor as an endorsement by Futurama of such third party.
We cannot guarantee the security of any links to Third-Party Websites. These Terms and Conditions do not apply to those Third Party Websites. Your use of such Third Party Websites is entirely at your own risk and we are not responsible for any loss, expense, claim or damage, whether direct, indirect or consequential, arising from your use of such Third Party Websites or your reliance on any information contained therein.
No person, business or other website may link to any page on this website without the prior written permission of Futurama.

Confirmation of orders

On receipt of your order we will send you an email describing the products and services you have ordered. These communications confirm we have received your order, but do not represent any acceptance of your offer to purchase products or services from us. We are not legally obliged to provide the products and services to you during the offer process. The contract between you and Futurama will only be completed when we deliver the products to you. Any products or services on the same order which have not been dispatched/delivered to you do not form part of that contract.
As we process your order we will inform you if any products or services on your order turn out to be unavailable or delayed for any reason.

Delivery of goods

Futurama only uses couriers to deliver Goods to you. We do not use the South African Post Office or PostNet.
You may elect to have Goods collected at our physical store, if feasible. Goods ordered that are not in stock with us at our physical store will still have a delivery cost associated with it because these Goods need to be shipped from our suppliers to us outside of regular stock shipments.
Delivery charges are subject to change at any time, without prior notice to you.
Delivery fees are displayed on checkout and/or are displayed on product pages. Delivery is subject to our Standard Shipping Rates and Shipping Restrictions, Shipping Restrictions refer to product that do not qualify for the standard delivery fee and require a separate shipping quote before purchasing due to disproportionate height, weight, size or quantity of products.
Delivery dates are estimates only.
Futurama will deliver the Goods to you as soon as reasonably possible. We will notify you if we become aware of any delivery issues or are unable to deliver the Goods.
Futurama’s obligation to deliver a product to you is fulfilled when we deliver the product to the physical address nominated by you for delivery of the order. Futurama is not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of a product, after the product has been delivered to the physical address nominated by you.
For more information about delivery, please see our Delivery and Returns page.

Risk and ownership

Risk in the Goods shall pass to you upon delivery of the Goods at the delivery address chosen by you. Until payment is received in full for any Goods sold, ownership in the Goods shall remain with Futurama and such Goods shall be returned and/or surrendered to Futurama following receipt of a default notice from Futurama.

Agreement of sale

An agreement of sale in respect of a product between Futurama and you only comes into effect when payment has been made by you and received by Futurama, and the products have been delivered at your chosen address. This is regardless of any communication from Futurama stating that your order or payment has been confirmed.
Registered users may place orders for Goods, which Futurama may accept or reject. Whether or not Futurama 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 for the Goods.
Futurama will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, or the supplier is out of stock at the time of placing an order, Futurama will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such Goods.
Orders placed for Special Order products, that may require a non-refundable deposit, will be refunded up to the deposit amount.
Prior to delivery or your collection of the Goods, you may cancel an order at any time provided you do so before receiving a dispatch or delivery notice.
After delivery or your collection of the Goods, you may return the Goods only in accordance with the Returns Policy.
Any order for a television will be subject to the condition that we obtain from you your valid TV licence. If we do not receive your TV licence, or your TV licence number cannot be validated, you will not be able to complete your purchase.
Placing Goods in a wishlist or shopping cart without completing the purchase does not constitute an 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 Futurama liable if such Goods are not available or are not available at the particular price when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase at a later stage.

Electronic communications

When you use the Website or send electronic communications to the website including, without limitation, e-mails or place orders for Goods, you consent to receiving communications from us or any of our divisions, affiliates or partners electronically in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Gift vouchers & coupons

Futurama may from time to time make physical or electronic gift vouchers (“Gift Vouchers”) and promotional coupons or discounts (“Coupons”) available for use on the Website towards the purchase of Futurama Goods. Gift Vouchers and Coupons can only be redeemed while they are valid and their expiry dates cannot be extended. More specifically:
Gift Vouchers that are purchased by registered users are valid for 1 year after Sale. Gift Vouchers that Futurama gives away for free are valid for the period stated thereon. In each case, if your Voucher has not been used within that period, it will expire.
Gift Vouchers cannot be used to buy other Gift Vouchers or Coupons. They do not accrue interest and are not refundable for cash once purchased or otherwise obtained. If your Gift Voucher value is less than the amount required to cover the full order you wish to place, you may make up the difference by paying via one of our other payment methods.
Futurama is not responsible for any harm due to the loss, unauthorised use or distribution of a Coupon.
There are two types of Coupons; a Coupon with a fixed amount of a discount, e.g. R100 off (“Fixed Coupon“), and a Coupon with a percentage discount, e.g. 10% off (“Percentage Coupon“).
Coupons are issued in Futurama’s sole discretion and we are entitled at any time to correct, cancel or reject a Coupon for any reason (including without limitation where a Coupon has been distributed in an unauthorised manner). Users do not have a right to Coupons, and Coupons cannot be earned. Coupons are issued under specific terms and conditions regulating when and how they may be used.
As a general rule, and unless specified otherwise on the specific Coupon itself:
each Coupon can only be used once;
only one Coupon can be used per order;
only one Coupon can be used on the Website per person per promotion/campaign;
Percentage Coupons may only be redeemed on purchases with a total cart value of less than R10,000;
where a Percentage Coupon has been used and you wish to cancel any items in the order prior to making payment, the entire order must be cancelled. You will be issued with a new Percentage Coupon and will need to place the order again, without the item that you wished to cancel;
a Coupon must be used at checkout, it cannot be used later on existing orders; and
the value of the Coupon will be set off against the value of your shopping cart and the balance remaining, if any, will be payable by you.
If for any reason a Coupon does not reflect on the final amount due from you at checkout, you can contact us to confirm if the Coupon is still valid. If Futurama confirms that the Coupon is still valid and you have already placed your order, you can choose whether to cancel the order and place it again with the Coupon, or you can use the Coupon on your next order within the limitations of the specific Coupon’s terms and conditions.
You may be required to submit the original communication containing the Coupon code, and any other information reasonably requested by Futurama, before you are able to use a Coupon.
