A confirmed order is eligible for cancellation for a limited time period until it is disbursed for delivery post to its submission as per the technical specifications of the Service.
INCOMPLETE ORDER FULFILLMENT / SUBSTITUTION
The primary objective of Metro Markets is to deliver all the products ordered in the right quantity and to a high-quality standard. User acknowledges that the Groceries are subject to stock availability and to human errors. Metro Markets reserves the right to amend your order in whole or in part, at any time and without liability or compensation remove any item that is out of stock, damaged, spoiled, or unavailable for any other reason, to successfully complete your order. It’s in our best intention to maintain the replaced item’s price the same as per the brand you ordered but in case of a higher valued replacement, the price may increase. We do our best to ensure that all items shown on our website are available to order. If, however, any product you order is out of stock or unavailable we may send you a push notification enabling you to select a substitute. If an item is not delivered, despite being billed, the amount in question will be credited to the User at a reasonable time after Metro Markets becomes aware of this. No subsequent delivery is obligatory to be made, and the customer is not entitled to claim any further compensation. If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, we will not be liable to the User. Please note that we will attempt to send the User push notification of substitute products in the event that selected products are unavailable, the User may reject these substitutes. Although we will always try to cater for your orders, an order of unusually large quantities of different or one product can only be fulfilled at the discretion of the Shop.
