Acceptance of orders
After placing an order, you will receive an email from TSSL acknowledging that TSSL has received your order and confirming whether or not TSSL can accept that order. The contract between us (Contract) will be formed when we send you an acknowledgement email, which confirms our acceptance of your offer to purchase the products. The Contract will relate only to those products indicated in the acknowledgement email. TSSL will not be obliged to supply any other products, which may have been part of your order until acceptance of your order for those products has been confirmed in a separate acknowledgement email.
TSSL is only able to take orders through the online store for delivery in Nigeria. If the country that you require delivery to is not visible then TSSL will not be able to process your order.
TSSL uses Interswitch Nigeria to validate credit or debit card details you submit to us before your order can be accepted. Your order will remain pending until Interswitch verifies and charges your payment card. TSSL accepts payment by most major credit and debit cards. Payment will be debited from your account before the dispatch of your purchase. All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer and Interswitch Nigeria. TSSL will not be liable for any delays to your order this may cause. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, or you fail any of our security checks, TSSL will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
TSSL accepts cash as a means of payment for transactions but does so at its discretion. TSSL may or may not accept cash payments in excess of a stated amount.
TSSL also accepts wire transfers from the Buyers’ accounts into any of its bank accounts. TSSL reserves the right to delay or refuse processing of the your order until any said payments have been verified and cleared by our banks. TSSL will not be liable for any delays to your order this may cause.
Availability of Products
Should your order be likely to be delayed (such as where items are out of stock), we will contact you. If you have any queries regarding the shipping of your order, please contact TSSL at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone on +234(1)8428132. The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery and ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charge.
If online store products become temporarily unavailable, TSSL may hold your order until TSSL has the product back in stock and will then deliver the product to you in the usual way. In the event that an individual product becomes permanently unavailable then TSSL will seek to offer you a suitable alternative or give you a full refund.
TSSL has made every effort to reproduce colours in the online store as accurately as possible. However, different computers reproduce colours in slightly different ways, and so exact colour matches are not yet possible over the Internet. This means that when you order products from the online store, colours may slightly differ from what you see on the screen. If you are not satisfied with the colour(s) of the product you have ordered, TSSL operate a returns policy (see "Returns Policy" below).
Products and Pricing
All product prices include Value Added Tax (“VAT”) where applicable. These may change in line with Nigerian government, Customs and Excise, ECOWAS directives, and other legal interpretations issued by relevant authorities. Promotions and prices you see in TSSL stores and catalogues do not necessarily apply to the online store, and vice versa.
Import duties and local taxes are NOT included in the quoted price of goods being delivered to outside Nigeria. In the event TSSL, at its own discretion, delivers products outside Nigeria, you will be responsible for the paying of any and all import duties and local taxes including any administration charges upon receipt.
The Website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite best efforts, some of the products listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. TSSL will normally verify prices, as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than the Website stated price, TSSL will dispatch the product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on the Website, TSSL will normally, at its discretion, reject your order and notify you of such rejection. TSSL is under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an acknowledgement email, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing.
TSSL reserves the right to amend any prices without any prior notice and at any time and the right to add or withdraw any product at any time.
To the extent that TSSL is permitted by law to limit our liability to you in connection with any order, that liability will not exceed the total price charged for the relevant product(s).
Your order will normally be dispatched within 2 - 3 (two to three) working days of placing the order. Whilst TSSL makes every effort to deliver goods within such timescales, however, some delays are inevitable. TSSL shall not be liable for any delay that you may suffer in this regard. The Terms and Conditions of our third party delivery agencies transfer to you automatically. If you would like to view the status of your order please visit ‘Order History’ in the ‘My Account’ section of the online store. If, after checking your Order History, you have any questions about the status of your order then please don't hesitate to contact us.
TSSL is authorised to share your personal information with third parties who are used to fulfil your order or satisfy our obligations to you.
TSSL has the right to cancel any order you make for any product if you fail our validation or security checks. In certain instances you may not receive email confirmation of an order being cancelled. If payment has been processed you will receive a full refund using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
You have the right to cancel any order you make for any product purchased through the online store for a full refund. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, return it to us at your own cost and risk within 7 (seven) days of receipt in an unworn/unused condition with its original packaging for a full refund or exchange. This returns policy applies to all products from TSSL except batteries. When returning products to us for refund or exchange, you must pay for the appropriate delivery costs. Full orders returned from customers who have paid for delivery will receive a full refund including delivery charges.
If you wish to exchange or return any product then please send the product (in its unworn/unused state with its original packaging) back with complete returns form (if available) in person or through the post to:
The Solar Shop Ltd,

Please wrap products securely, fix the returns label safely to the parcel and attach appropriate postage. Please remember to include your completed returns form (if available) and give the reason for return and any new requirements. TSSL advises that returns are sent via recorded delivery, as TSSL will not accept liability for lost returns. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a legal right to claim compensation from you. In the instance TSSL is liable for return delivery costs, TSSL will not refund return postage above or beyond the initial postage charge. Should you have any queries regarding a return then please don't hesitate to contact us.
