Terms and Conditions


  1.  Company will not be liable for any loss suffered due to incorrect information / registration details that is supplied by a User.


  2. Intellectual Property Rights
    All the trademarks, data and content on this web site and/or Voucher interface, including but not limited to software, databases, text, video clips, graphics, icons, hyperlinks, private information, designs and agreements, are the property of, or are licensed to TPC. All these are protected from infringement by any third party, in terms of local and international legislation and treaties.


  3. Voucher service delivery.
    3.1 To combat possible fraud or corruption there is a barrier which might prevent duplicate recharge attempts e.g. from the same mobile device number and exactly the same amount during the first 24 (twenty-four) hours after the initial transaction. If such duplicate recharge attempts process within the 24 (twenty-four) hours period, the conditions stipulated in Clause 3.4 will apply. Prevent inconvenience by recharging with a slightly different amount in ZAR if available on the menu, no cents to be used as systems do not process any cents.

3.2 Although a Voucher completes most recharges/redemptions of Product almost immediately, the Company does not in any way guarantee a turnaround time. The main reason for this is the Company’s reliance on Suppliers.

3.3 Should a redemption/recharge for Product not have been done and Company is made aware of this within a reasonable period of time TPC will respond to all such queries quickly and efficiently. Although most personal communication to Users commence within an hour or two from receiving an enquiry, Company reserves the right to commit to communicate with Users personally with regards to any failures within 2 (two) business days from receiving a failure report. The only reason Company reserves this right is to ensure communication to all Users, during critical system failures of any Third Party.

3.4 Should a User request a refund for any legitimate reason, such request will be processed unless a Voucher/Token had been requested by Company prior to receiving the request. The time of issuing such a request, by the User, will not be deemed as the time that Company was notified. Notification will be deemed as the time that Voucher support personnel became aware of such a request. Automatic programmed processes continuously run in the background to attempt recharging unsuccessful transactions, for this reason Company cannot be held liable for a recharge/Product redemption taking place in the window period from the User sending such a request to the time support personnel becomes aware of such a request.

3.5 Should a Voucher not have been issued and support staff become aware of a User’s request for a refund/replacement, such refund or replacement (at the election of The Prepaid Company Proprietary Limited) will be effected on the first business Monday after the refund became known to support staff, provided Company has the bank details of the particular User. If not, support personnel will request the details. Upon receiving the information Company again reserve the right to carry out the refund/replacement by the first business Monday after the bank details were provided.

3.6 The Voucher (or part thereof) entitles the User to redeem against Product. No ownership in any Product will pass until actual redemption. Each Voucher issued by the Company to the User in terms of these terms and conditions will be redeemable for a period of 6 (six) months from the date upon which it is issued by the Company to a User. Where a customer wishes to activate a Voucher/Token after the 6 (six) month period but before the expiry of 36 (thirty six) months (or such shorter period as may be permitted in law for a voucher to be unredeemable) from the date upon which the Voucher/Token in question is issued by the Company to the User, then the User/Voucher purchaser may requisition from the Company the re-issue of the Voucher/Token in question, in which case the Company will re-issue a Voucher for like value (in whole or part, as applicable) in either case, so that it remains redeemable for such period as is required by law. 

4. Fees and charges
4.1 All prices are inclusive of VAT. Standard rates apply for USSD and data services.

4.2 Product prices may be greater or lesser than like products offered by third parties.

4.3 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the User acknowledges and agrees that Company shall be entitled to charge the User a reasonable convenience fee in terms of applicable law and the User hereby duly authorises the Company to deduct such convenience fee from every Transaction. 5.
