By registering online and accepting the following Terms and Conditions, the stockist registered their professional beauty business to become a nonexclusive stockist of the brands and products distributed by Fransolet Distributors (Pty) Ltd.
The stockist is an independent company and is not a legal representative or agent of Fransolet Distributors for any purpose and shall have no right or authority over any of the company’s employees, services or products.
It is also understood that the stockist is a nonexclusive stockist of the brands and products distributed by Fransolet Distributors.
No exclusivity will be given to any stockist in any specific area, town or city i.e. more than one salon, spa, clinic or beauty business can stock products supplied by the company in one area, town or city.
All orders must be placed in writing via email to email@example.com or WhatsApp to +27 (0) 82 332 0622. Telephonic orders must be followed up in writing, email or WhatsApp to reduce the risk of miscommunication. By placing an order either via WhatsApp or email, your company is financially liable for all stock ordered.
All orders placed will be invoiced within 24 hours from placing the order, however, technology can sometimes let one down, and should the stockist not receive an invoice within the 24 hours, the stockist should follow up. Should an order be urgent, the stockist should inform the company telephonically.
Invoices issued will only be valid for seven (7) working days from invoice date, and should payment not be made within this seven (7) day period, the invoice will automatically be cancelled, and a new order should be placed by the client, which would be re-invoiced.
As soon as full payment for the order reflects in the company’s bank account, the order will be processed and sent out by a courier company appointed by the company, utilising its economy service, unless otherwise arranged with your representative.
Only orders paid in full will be sent out, delivered or allowed to be collected. No orders can be or will be dispatched, delivered or allowed to be collected without full payment received in the company’s bank account.
Delivery time frames are dependent on the stock ordered, size of the order and the area to which the order is to be delivered to.
Orders can be processed within one (1) working day, however, it can also take up to fourteen (14) working days, therefore it is highly advisable that stockists plan ahead and not place orders on the last minute.
The company always maintains realistic inventory levels, but delays beyond the company’s control, e.g. customs delays do happen.
Should an out of stock situation arise, the company will communicate with the stockist as soon as possible.
The “out of stock” products on the order will be placed on back order and will be delivered as soon as the stock becomes available.
All cancellation of orders by the stockist shall be in writing. The stockist shall reimburse the company for any costs incurred by the company prior to the cancellation of the order. Fransolet Distributors reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee.
All orders are processed on a “payment on invoice” basis, i.e. full payment BEFORE DELIVERY. It is VERY IMPORTANT that the stockist use their salon name or invoice number as reference to ensure that the company allocate payments correctly.
All pricing is subject to change without prior notice and depends on various factors including the fluctuating rand /euro exchange rate. All prices EXCLUDE courier / delivery / insurance & VAT.
PLEASE NOTE: no orders will be delivered, can be collected or couriered without the company receiving full payment.
**The Company is not a registered credit provider in terms of the National Credit Act, 34 of 2005 and may therefore not supply products to Stockists on a credit basis.**
Fransolet Distributors’ office hours are Monday to Thursday 08:00 to 16:00 and on Fridays from 08:00 to 14:00.
All orders will be delivered by a courier company appointed by the company, utilising its economy service, unless otherwise arranged with your representative.
Should the stockist require same day, overnight or Saturday delivery, additional charges will be levied according to the courier surcharges. The company will advise the stockist of this cost in writing prior to dispatch, and this delivery service will only be used upon agreement and confirmation in writing from the stockist that the stockist accepts the courier charges for the special delivery.
The company will send a notice to the stockist when their order has been dispatched. Normal Delivery times are as follows:
Main / City centres takes 1-2 working days
Regional centres takes 2-3 working days
Outlying areas takes 4-5 working days
The company will send a notice to the stockist when their order is “Out on Delivery”. Should the parcel NOT be delivered by 1pm, should let the company know either via phone 087 820 7099 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, so that they can follow up with the courier to ensure delivery. If the company receive notice of non delivery from the stockist after 3pm, there is very little they can do.
The stockist must ensure that the delivery note is signed and a copy is retained as proof of receipt.
Upon delivery, the stockist should inspect the contents of the parcel to determine whether any item or items included in the parcel is in short supply, defective or damaged. Any shortages, defects or damages the stockist claims existed at the time of delivery, should be reported in writing to the company within 12 hours after delivery of the parcel.
Should the stockist have received any damaged or dented parcels from the courier, it is very important that it is clearly noted on the waybill / delivery note that the box or parcel is damaged. Failure to do so, will void any claims the stockist may have.
In the case of a damaged or dented delivery, the stockist should inspect the contents of the parcel as soon as possible to determine whether any item or items included in the parcel was damaged. If there were any damages to the contents of the parcel, the stockist should take a photo of said damages and email (email@example.com) or WhatsApp (+27 (0) 82 332 0622) it to the company.
The company will, within 7 working days after receipt of such notice, investigate the claim of shortages, defects or damages and will inform stockist of its findings.
