bidorbuy boosts buyer protection

[Johannesburg, 23 September 2014] - As part of ongoing efforts to improve the safety and†security†of†online shoppers,†www.bidorbuy.co.za†has extended its†Buyer Protection Programme†to give buyers additional peace of mind by covering practically all purchases made on the site.

"In a gist, we as a company take it upon ourselves to make things right for every buyer in the unlikely event that the seller does not ship the item purchased on the site, or ships an item that is materially different," says bidorbuy CEO Jaco Jonker.

The amount of protection ranges from R1 000 to 100%, depending on the purchase and seller. The least amount of coverage, up to R1 000, is offered for non-verified and international sellers. Purchases from verified sellers are covered up to R5 000 and purchases from stores up to R12 500. Items purchased from bidorbuy's popular Deal of the Week section enjoy a 100% protection.
