If you have a guarantee on your product, it is your responsibility to state this clearly in your product description and to act on it accordingly. WAPPOINT may become involved in refund and/or return issues solely on a consulting basis.


  • WAPPoint must comply with national and international laws, regulations, policies, rules and requirements to prevent criminal activities, money laundering and terrorist financing, sanctions and prohibited business activity laws and rules. WAPPoint must therefore check all information from and about you and related parties, and monitor, verify, process and screen your and related party information, instructions and transactions on an ongoing basis. This may cause some delays or the limitation or the prohibition of transactions that you make or accounts you apply for. We may also have to end our relationship with you without warning.
  • WAPPoint is not responsible for any losses or damages that you may suffer because of these checks or by WAPPoint ending the relationship. This includes any loss of profits or savings that you would otherwise have expected to make.


  • If your Account is credited with an amount that does not belong to you, you agree:
    – to tell us straight away;
    – not to withdraw or spend it;
    – if you do, you have to pay it back to us;
    – and that we can debit your Account with the amount that does not belong to you that was credited to your account (whether or not you have spent or withdrawn it).


Specific exceptions to the benefit

      • The company shall provide a replacement terminal and collect the broken terminal within 24-48 Working Hours or 4-8 hours depending on the subscription chosen. Please note the following:
        • (a) our offices are closed on weekends. In this case, we will provide telephonic support and transaction processing whilst the terminal is out of order and arrange for the device to be swapped out on the next available business day. Alternatively a call out can be arranged within a 50km radius of our branches. We charge a set call out fee plus R3.60 per km and only the 4-8 hr subscription option will cover call outs within a 50km radius of any WAPPoint branch.
        • (b) regional area couriers may take 2-3 working days to deliver once the device has left our premises and we unfortunately do not provide call out services to regional areas.
        • (c) this benefit does not cover any parts or repairs and is only valid on courier or call out fees i.e. the delivery and collection costs to replace a faulty device.
        • (d) Devices that are faulty due to negligence i.e. broken / damaged / lost parts will not be covered and are billed separately.
        • (e) In order for the benefit to be valid, the account may not be overdue.

Purpose of Swap Out Subscriptions

      • The reason why we charge the courier fees for swap outs is due to the fact that your device is similar to a car and therefore requires a “service” from time to time. In the instance of a car, you would be required to take it to the dealership and collect it again after it has received the service. Similarly, you can bring the device to one of our offices to have the swap out done, or we can save you the hassle of driving to us, and arrange the couriers on your behalf. As our devices do not require servicing often, most customers will only require a swap out once a year, depending on how frequently the device is utilised.
      • If you are renting the device from us we would never expect you to pay for any of the repairs (unless there are missing or broken parts due to negligence) and we are only charging for the courier fees / call out fees to collect the old device and deliver the new device. This subscription fee can be added to your monthly rental invoice so that you don’t pay for any couriers related to swap outs that may occur, no matter how frequently your device requires exchanges.
