Payment & Shipping
Electronic Fund Transfers (EFTs) Payments
Orders may be paid for via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) through your online banking account into the business account of Setsolar Just follow these 4 easy steps when paying for your order via EFT.
Step 3: Pay the total amount using your order number as the reference
By using your order number as a reference, we will be able to locate and confirm your payment to help speed up your order.
Step 4: Email us your proof of payment
This is VERY important if you wish to speed up your delivery times. Just before you transfer the funds for your order via EFT, ensure that you send "Notification to Recipient" via email. During the check out process you will be provided with a secure email address to send your proof of payment to. Insert this in the email address block so that once your payment is processed, our Orders department will receive a bona fide proof of payment that has been sent directly from your bank to us. This will ensure that we can dispatch your purchase immediately.
*Should you not send a proof of payment, or send us a proof of payment from any other email address (other than the one that would be sent by your bank), we will process your order only once the funds have reflected within our account which could delay delivery of your goods to you by 2-3 working days. Also note that paying via a bank teller (or ATM) is not paying via EFT and similarly, your goods will only be dispatched once the funds have cleared.
Credit / Debit Card payments
You have the option of choosing to pay with a Credit or Debit Card through our online payment gateway - PayU. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Diners Club. To pay by Credit or Debit Card you will need to follow these 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Check out your cart
Once you are happy with your selections, you will click ‘Proceed to Checkout’. This will take you to the checkout page where you will need to select ‘Secure payment using PayGate’ and then click ‘Proceed to Checkout’ again. You will then be redirected to the Secure Payment Page hosted by PayU.
Step 2: PayU secure payment gateway
You will first be asked to select a payment type. You will select either Credit or Debit Card. Please note that the option to pay by Debit Card is currently only available to Standard Bank and Nedbank Debit Card customers on the MTN and Vodacom Networks. When you click Credit Card you will be asked to input your card details and then click ‘Pay Now’. If you are using either a Visa or MasterCard, you will be redirected again to the 3D secure consol.
Step 3: 3D Secure
This is an extra security step introduced by Visa and MasterCard to prevent fraudulent payments on your card should it be lost or stolen. You will be asked to input a pin/password to complete the transaction. This is NOT your ATM pin. If you do not have a pin/password, you will need to register and set one up. There will be a link on the consol that will allow you to do that.
Once you have registered or submitted your pin/password, your transaction will be completed and you will be redirected back to our Checkout page for confirmation fo your order. You will receive a copy of your order and payment authentication in your e-mail inbox.
Should you require a different payment method, please email us with your payment request. Please note that we are currently not able to accept PayPal or Skrill payments. Other manual forms of payment like Cash or Cheque Deposit or Money Transfer are acceptable but will require reflection and identification in the Setsolar bank account before your goods are dispatched. This may delay delivery by as much as seven (7) working days. Please note a 2% levy is charged on cash deposits and must be included in the total amount paid.

What are my delivery options?
Buying our products online is easy! All you have to do is register and you will be able to log in, add products to your shopping cart and checkout. On the right hand side of the page you will see the ‘customer log in section’. Once you have placed your order you will be offered the following shipping options:
Please note: ’Main centres’ refers to deliveries within a 50km radius of the major cities in South Africa, but exclude plots, farms, and mines within that radius. If you are not in a main centre then it may take a few days longer. The time taken to dispatch deliveries depends on payment clearing in our account as well as the availability of the ordered goods from our suppliers.
Courier Express Delivery
Deliveries to main centres will reach you within one working day of the order being dispatched.
Road Express Delivery
Deliveries to main centres will reach you within two working days of the order being dispatched.
Road Economy Delivery
Deliveries to main centres will reach you within three working day of the order being dispatched.
Free Collection (only available in Cape Town) or use your own courier
You can collect your parcel personally or send your own preferred courier to collect your order from our offices in Epping Industrial 2. Our office hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm. Please note: A minimum of 2 days is required before your order will be ready for collection by yourself or courier.
How are shipping costs calculated?
Our system automatically calculates the weight of your order and displays the appropriate amount due during the checkout process. Although we have taken great care to capture the weights of our products accurately, we cannot guarantee that your order's exact weight will match the approximation used by our system to quote you. If you do not receive a shipping option amount, it means that our system is unable to add the weight of your products ordered and you will have to select the quotation option, we will then contact you with a shipping quote.
Please note that unforeseen circumstances e.g. adverse weather, closed roads, public holidays etc. could prolong the delivery time. This is rare but it does happen, so 'late' delivery is not a ground for refund or cancellation of the order. However if your delivery has not been delivered after the estimated times shown above, please contact us with your order number so that we can follow up on the matter.
Please contact us here for a quote on international export.
What happens if there is no one home when a courier delivery is attempted?
Courier deliveries are made, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, so you should always provide a delivery address whereby an appropriate person will be available to accept and sign for the delivery during these times. If there is no one around to accept the delivery, the courier company will contact the recipient via telephone so that a new delivery day can be arranged.
Do I have to receive a courier delivery personally?
Anyone at the delivery address can accept the delivery. In order for us to prove that delivery of an order has been completed, we do not have to prove that you personally received the goods, but rather that any person at the delivery address signed for the delivery.
Can I track my order?
We will email you your parcel's tracking information as soon as your order has been dispatched. You can then track your parcel on the Post Office or courier service's websites, whichever applies to your shipment.
Do you deliver internationally?
Yes we do. Please contact us here for a quote on international export.
Where is your shop?
Our offices are based in Epping Industrial 2, Cape Town, but since we are an online business we are everywhere! No matter where you are based in South Africa, you can place an order with us through our website or on the phone and we will deliver your order to your doorstep.
What do I do if I receive goods that have been damaged or broken during transit?
If you do not receive your order in mint condition or if anything is broken or damaged, please let us know immediately so that we can ensure the situation is rectified. Whilst we have not lost any parcels in the post to date, goods are occasionally damaged in transit and there is no question that these will be replaced.
