6. PURCHASING PROCESS.
At the moment, the purchasing process is carried out through Afrikable’s Website and is carried out wholly electronically. As such, to start this process, it is necessary to become a registered user on the Website. The steps to carry out the process are as follows:

6.1 PRODUCT SELECTION:
To obtain the detailed file about the product, including the brand, product characteristics, price, taxes and possible delays, offers or gifts that may come with it, all you need to do is click on the desired product.

If you want the product in question to be added to your shopping basket, all you have to do is click on the button marked ‘shopping basket’. A page will appear showing products that have already been added to the shopping basket, and an option will be given to the User to continue shopping, update, or finalise the order. If you wish to delete the products, tick the box marked ‘delete’ or mark the quantity as 0 and click ‘update’. On this screen you can click ‘finalise order’ and you will be taken automatically to the payment page.

In the second phase of the process, all products selected by the client throughout their visit to the site will appear on the screen.

In this section the following fields will appear:
