Terms and Conditions
  1. Service Delivery
    1. Although www.bills.express through ZODZO affects most payments in less than 15 minutes, www.bills.express does not in any way guarantee any turnaround time. The main reason for this being ZODZO’s reliance on third parties.
    2. For Bank Transfer payments, transactions will only be processed once payment has been cleared by the bank.
    3. Should a payment not have been affected, and www.bills.express has been made aware of this fact, www.bills.express through ZODZO, will answer all such queries fast and efficiently. Although most personal communication from ZODZO to the user will commence within an hour or two from receiving the enquiry, www.bills.express commits to communicate with users personally with regards to any failures within 2 business days from receiving a failure report from our online helpdesk. The only reason www.bills.express reserves this right is to ensure communication to all users, during critical system failures of any third party.
    4. Should a user request a refund for any reason, such refund will be processed, no questions asked, unless the payment has already been forwarded to the biller by ZODZO prior to ZODZO becoming aware of such a request. The time of issuing such a request, by the user, will not be deemed as the time that ZODZO was notified. Notification will be deemed as the time that ZODZO support staff became aware of such a request. Automatic programmed processes continuously run in the background retrying unsuccessful transactions, for this reason ZODZO cannot be held liable for a recharge taking place in the window period from the user sending such a request to the time support staff becomes aware of such a request.
    5. Should a Voucher/token not have been issued and support staff becomes aware of a user’s request for a refund, such refund will be affected within 2 business days, should ZODZO have the necessary bank details of the particular user. Should it not be the case, support staff will request the detail. Upon receiving the information www.bills.express again reserves the right to affect the recharge within 2 business days.
