Sample policy

We understand that our clients require samples in order to close a deal.

Amrod's sample policy is as follows:

  • Samples are available for purchase and collection from our Johannesburg Sample shop.
  • Clients ordering samples from either Cape Town or Durban may have these sent overnight to the respective branches.
  • Samples with an individual product price of less than R30 excluding VAT may not be returned.
  • Samples with an individual product price of R30 excluding VAT or more may be returned for a refund or credit.
  • Memory sticks may not be returned for credit. We recommend purchasing dummy memory stick samples.
  • Samples must be returned in original condition as well as original packaging so that a refund/credit can be ensured.
  • It may take up to a week to carefully check samples that are returned and once we are satisfied that samples are fit for resale we will issue the refund or credit note.
  • Damage to any part of sample or packaging will result in samples not being accepted for return.
  • Importantly, when returning samples, the original invoice relevant to the samples needs to accompany the returned goods before a credit note will be issued and a refund effected.
  • EFT refunds are processed every Friday.
  • All orders need to be paid for and collected within 5 working days of invoice date and if not paid and collected within this time, they will be cancelled.
  • For clients on our Carbon Tier, sample orders may only be returned for credit, at your expense, to the Johannesburg office. These orders cannot be returned to our other branches.
