4. How to make an order and how it is processed
4.1. Compiling your Order: Once you select the Products you wish to order from the menu of your chosen Restaurant and provide other required information, you will be given the opportunity to submit your Order by clicking or selecting the "proceed", "place my order", "checkout" or similar button. It is important that you check all the information that you enter and correct any errors before clicking or selecting this button; once you do so we will process your Order and errors cannot be corrected.
4.2. Minimum Order Amount: If a Restaurant has a minimum order amount in place, you may not place an order with that Restaurant until the value of your Order exceeds that amount. The minimum order amount must be met after applying any discounts or specials that reduce the total Order amount.
4.3. Amending or cancelling your Order: Once you submit your Order and your payment has been authorized, you will not be entitled to change or cancel your Order online. If you wish to change or cancel your Order, you may contact the Restaurant directly or our Customer Care team as described in paragraph 6.3 and they will attempt to contact the Restaurant in order to communicate your requests. However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to reach the Restaurant or that the Restaurant will agree to your requests as they may have already started to process your Order.
4.4. Payment authorisation: Where any payment you make is not authorised, your Order will not be processed by or communicated to the relevant Restaurant.
4.5. Processing your Order and Restaurant rejections: On receipt of your Order, we will begin processing it by sending it to the relevant Restaurant and will notify you by email that your Order has been received and is being processed. Any confirmation page that you may see on the Website and any Order confirmation e-mail that you may receive each merely indicate that your Order has been received and is being processed by us, and does not necessarily mean that your Order has been accepted by the Restaurant. Restaurants have the discretion to reject Orders at any time because they are too busy, due to weather conditions or for any other reason. We encourage all our Restaurants to accept all Orders and to communicate any rejection promptly, and we will notify you (generally by email) as soon as reasonably practicable if a Restaurant rejects your Order.
4.6. Delivery of your Order: Estimated times for deliveries and collections are provided by the Restaurants and are only estimates. Neither we nor the Restaurants guarantee that Orders will be delivered or will be available for collection within the estimated times. All food preparation and deliveries are the sole responsibility of the Restaurant accepting the Order. To the extent permitted by law, including the Fiji Consumer Law, Fiji Eats accepts no liability associated with food preparation or delivery by the Restaurant accepting the order.
5. Price and Payment
5.1. Taxes and delivery costs: Prices for individual menu items will be as quoted on the Website in Fijian dollars. These prices include any applicable taxes but may exclude delivery costs (if you opt for delivery instead of collection) and any online payment administration charge imposed by the Restaurant (if you pay for your Order online). These will be added to the total amount due where applicable.
5.2. Payment methods: Payment for Orders must be made by an accepted credit/debit card through the Website or in cash to the Restaurant at the point of delivery to you.
5.3. Card payments: Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in delays in sums being deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card.
5.4. Rejected Orders: Once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorized, you will be charged the full amount of your Order. If your Order is subsequently rejected by the Restaurant (as described in paragraph 4.4 above) or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will refund the relevant amount. However, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant Restaurant will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
