Refund / Disputes policy
If you receive goods that are faulty or defective in any way, we will honour our commitments under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (New Zealand).
Our total liability to you in relation to any faulty goods or services is limited to the price of those goods or services. We will not, in any case, be liable for any consequential or special damages, including loss of business profits.
It is Southern Hospitality Limited's policy that product returns will be accepted for the following reasons:

Southern Hospitality is offering free delivery inside New Zealand on all online orders NZ$100 and over(ex GST). For online orders up to NZ$99.99, we charge NZ$5.90+GST.

Free Delivery on online orders ND$100 and over is effective from 26th July, 2018 onwards.
We will endeavour to fill and dispatch all orders received via the secure site within 2 days of receiving payment for your order, except where the product ordered is not available, in which case you will be notified and will have the option to cancel, vary the order or wait for the product to become available.
In the case of a purchase being made with a delivery address outside of New Zealand, due to the cost of international freight and handling, a customer services representative will be in contact to discuss delivery options.

In the unlikely event that the goods or services you have ordered are no longer available, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel an order. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders that we believe, solely by our own judgement, to be placed for commercial purposes, e.g. any kind of reseller.
We also reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders that we believe, solely by our own judgement, to have been placed fraudulently or by error. While we endeavour to ensure that the price and description of goods or services is accurate, if there is an error in the process of listing a product or service on our website or a technical error in the processing of your order, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel the order.
