6. Conclusion of Sales and Availability of Stock
6.1. Whether or not SOHO or the Third Party seller accepts a purchase depends on the availability of goods, correctness of the information relating to the goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by SOHO for the goods.
6.2. NOTE: SOHO or the Third Party seller will indicate the acceptance of your purchases in writing and thereafter by allowing you to collect such goods and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and SOHO or the Third Party seller come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from SOHO stating that your purchase or payment has been confirmed. SOHO will indicate the rejection of your purchase (by SOHO itself or the Third Party seller) by cancelling it, and as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid. Although SOHO will update its website regularly and will further endeavour to ensure that all products on the website are in stock or available, it may take up to three months to order an item currently out of stock. Should a situation arise where you have paid for an out of stock item, you will be contacted with the option to wait for the product or be reimbursed the purchase price.
6.3. We cannot take responsibility for incorrect email/phone numbers or for failure to check email messages timeously. After your purchase and collection of the goods, you may return the goods only in accordance with the Returns Policy. Please note that penalties and cancellation fees and costs may apply.
6.4. You acknowledge that stock of all goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice. In the case of goods for sale by SOHO, SOHO will take all reasonable steps to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When goods are no longer available after you have purchased, SOHO will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such goods.
6.5. In the case of goods for sale by a Third Party seller, SOHO relies on inventory information supplied by the relevant Third Party seller and SOHO accordingly bears no liability for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to it. Consequently, should you order any goods from a Third Party seller which are in fact sold-out, any resulting dispute shall be between you and the relevant Third Party seller, your respective rights
and obligations being as set out in these Terms and Conditions and in that of the Third Party seller’s Terms and Conditions.
6.6. Certain goods may not be purchased for re-sale. Should we suspect that any such goods are being purchased for re-sale, we are entitled to cancel your order immediately on notice to you.
6.7. We reserve the right to limit the amount of products a customer can purchase.

Should we do not receive the requisite authorisation, your order for the goods and services will be cancelled. You expressly warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying the goods and services. You also warrant that your credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the services used on the website.

10.1.1.2 Gift cards cannot be used to buy other gift cards or coupons. They do not accrue interest and are not refundable for cash once purchased. If your gift card value is insufficient for the services chosen, you may make up the difference by paying via one of our other payment methods.
