4. Prepaid24 service delivery
4.1 To combat possible fraud or corruption there is a barrier which might prevent duplicate recharge attempts e.g from the same cellphone number and exactly the same amount during the first 24 hours after the initial transaction. If such duplicate recharge attempts process within the 24 hours period, the conditions stipulated in Clause 4.5 will apply. Prevent inconvenience by recharging with a slightly different amount in Rands, no cents to be used as Prepaid24 systems do not process any cents.
4.2 Although Prepaid24 complete most recharges in less than 15 minutes, Prepaid24 do not in any way guarantee a turnaround time. The main reason for this is Prepaid24's reliance on third parties.
4.3 Transactions will only be processed once the EFT payment has been cleared by the bank.
4.4 Should a recharge not have been done, and Prepaid24 were made aware of this Prepaid24 will respond to all such queries quickly and efficiently. Although most personal communication from Prepaid24 to users commence within an hour or two from receiving an enquiry, Prepaid24 reserves the right to commit to communicate with users personally with regards to any failures within 2 business days from receiving a failure report. The only reason Prepaid24 reserves this right is to ensure communication to all users, during critical system failures of any third party.
4.5 Should a user request a refund for any reason, such request will be processed unless a voucher or pin had been asked for by Prepaid24 prior to receiving the request. The time of issuing such a request, by the user, will not be deemed as the time that Prepaid24 was notified. Notification will be deemed as the time that Prepaid24 support staff became aware of such a request. Automatic programmed processes continuously run in the background to attempt recharging unsuccessful transactions, for this reason Prepaid24 cannot be held liable for a recharge taking place in the window period from the user sending such a request to the time support staff becomes aware of such a request.
4.6 Should a Voucher/token or pin not have been issued and support staff become aware of a user’s request for a refund, such refund will be effected on the first business Monday after the refund became known to support staff, provided Prepaid24 have the bank details of the particular user. If not, support staff will request the details.
