Our services include:
Payment for our services is based on our unique Legal Credits mechanism. There are no monthly subscriptions or minimum amounts payable and you only pay for the services you use.
Legal Credits are a mechanism that allows our users to purchase access to services in advance.
We launched Legal City in May 1999 with the intention of charging for services on a pay-as-you-go basis. The idea was to spare our users the burden of a monthly subscription and to charge them only for the services they actually used. We also found it was impractical to charge our users before each search as most people conduct more than one search per session and some of our services are available at a very low cost.
To address these issues we introduced Legal Credits - a simple and convenient mechanism which allows users to purchase access to our services in advance and keep excess charges to a minimum.
Our preferred method is for users to use a credit card as their Legal Credits are allocated automatically upon receiving a successful authorisation from the bank. All other forms of payment are subject to mandatory clearance periods.
The base rate for Legal Credits is 1 Legal Credit = 10 cents (excluding VAT).
We also reward large purchases by giving away additional Legal Credits for free. For example, if you purchase Legal Credits say for R 1,000.00 we will give you additional Legal Credits to the value of R 100.00 absolutely free.
