A purchasing contract ("sale") between the user and Greenbean shall be complete only once a user has placed an order and the payment has been processed fully, meaning Greenbean has received and accepted the payment.

Minimum Order Value

For any trade customers wishing to benefit from reduced price's they must comply with our strict Minimum Order Quantity ("MOQ") of R2000 Inc VAT at the current trade price. Greenbean reserves the right to cancel or change prices for any order that does not comply with the above-mentioned requirements.

For new trade customers who are placing their first order, we will require an R5000 minimum order inc VAT, thereafter our standard MOQ will apply.

Free Delivery is only available to standard orders done via our online store, that meets our MOQ value. Free delivery will only apply to RSA metro area's covered by Fastway (see shipping policy). Any 'specials', 'discounted' or customized orders do not include free delivery.


If payment fails due to the account not existing, insufficient funds, the credit card number or other information being incorrect etc. the purchase will not be successful. The above is dependent on the product being available.

For EFT payments kindly note the following: 

  • You have 24 hours to pay and send us proof of payment.
  • If you don't pay in time, we'll cancel the order on your behalf.
  • Orders placed after hours, on weekends or public holidays will be processed the following business day.

Reservation of items

Products cannot be reserved by a user to be bought at a later time. Placing an item in your cart without processing the payment for the order will not lead to a successful order being placed nor the reservation of (an) item(s).

If an item is listed as “on hold”, this means that a user currently has the last of these items in their Greenbean shopping cart. If their cart expires without payment being made, this item will be released back onto the website for sale.


Please note that the stock of all items on offer is limited. Greenbean will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that customers are notified when the stock may be low. 

If it happens that Greenbean is unable to fulfill an order at the advertised price because the stock is sold out or unavailable, Greenbean will let you know and you'll be entitled to a reimbursement or a credit note for the Rand value you have paid for such product. New stock is subject to a change in price without notice. 

Delivery and Risk

Where multiple payments are made for orders or single payments are made for multiple orders, its is encumbent upon the customer to confirm that the payments have been allocated to the correct invoice. Greenbean will ensure that the correct items are dispatched as per invoice and will only be responsible for the collection of goods that have not been dispatched in accordance with the invoice. 

Delivery of goods shall be made to the customer at the place specified in the customer's acceptance of order/ invoice or as subsequently agreed in writing between the parties. 

Risk in respect of all goods shall pass to the customer at the time of delivery/dispatch via courier. Insurance should be effected by the customer from that time.
