Terms & Conditions
securebessie is an proudly South African brand that is passionate about empowering women to feel safe and secure, wherever they may be, without compromising on their freedom. Our commitment to our fellow bessies is this: The only products you will find on this site are products that WE have tried, WE have tested – and WE believe in.
Here, we’re not fixated with the size of our catalogue, because at the end of the day – it’s not quantity that counts. Instead, we focus on stocking only those products that are the best at what they do… keep us safe. How does this benefit you? Well, foregoing the fanfare and bypassing the bells and whistles ultimately means that our suppliers are as committed to your safety and we are. That is what makes us different… Our mission is to help our fellow bessies live safely, and have some fun while we’re at it!

securebessie has partnered with Pargo for fulfilment of orders placed online. Pargo have thousands of pick-up and drop-off points across South Africa. Instead of having an order delivered to your home / office (where you may not be available to collect it at the time of delivery) Pargo allows you to select a pick-up point that is close to and convenient for you. This simple method also makes facilitating returns far easier, and overall is less expensive than traditional shipping methods. For more information, click here.
No orders will be processed until orders are fully confirmed and payment is received in full. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any sales or payment related queries.
Should you for any reason wish to cancel or return your purchase, you are required to advise us in writing at email@example.com of your wish to return the said goods. Goods must be returned to us undamaged and in their original packaging within 7 calendar days. Thereafter, no returns will be accommodated. Should goods become damaged or lost en route back to us, no money will be refunded.
Payment Options and Pricing
All transactions will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR). The total price of your order includes VAT and shipping costs. We reserve the right to change pricing at any time without notice.
VCS is the preferred payment method for a number of online merchants. VCS enables us to process credit and debit card payments securely. Standard transaction fees as indicated by your bank apply.
EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer)
EFT is one of the safest, most widely used online payment methods. Once you have added all the desired items to your shopping cart, proceed to “Checkout” and follow the simple checkout instructions. Select the option to pay via EFT. You will then have to load securebessie as a beneficiary on your internet banking (our account details are provided) and use the unique order number as reference. This should ensure speedy processing and delivery of your selected products.
SnapScan is a secure online payment method that lets users pay merchants using an app on their smart device. SnapScan has over 25 000 merchants and a vast user network across South Africa. Their app supports credit cards and most debit cards from any local bank, as well as 3D Secure-enabled international bank cards. For more information, click here.
As a VCS merchant, securebessie is committed to providing secure online services. Encryption is used to protect the transmission of personal information when completing online transactions, and all encryption complies with international standards. The Merchant does not have access to credit card details.
