When you submit your order to us, you will receive an e-mail confirming that we have received your order and are processing it.
You will then receive a second e-mail from us at some point to notify you as soon as your order has been shipped. This second e-mail should include tracking information when this is available.
All orders placed from Monday to Friday are shipped the day that we receive them, if in stock. Should any orders be placed for stock that needs to be shipped out of South Africa, it is important that you determine the import requirements of the local country concerning receipt of goods from South Africa. Depending upon the value of the order, and/or the necessary documentation that needs to accompany the shipment, these will normally be shipped either by a courier (small quantities) or a freight agent, whose additional costs will have to be carried by you (the customer).
We recommend that for all export orders, the necessary insurance provision is arranged and while we are aware of some of the documentation that might be required, it is very important that the importer specify exactly what documentation is needed. We cannot carry any liability for additional expenses or certification that needs to be obtained.
1. Orders Submitted on a Weekend
Weekend orders are shipped on Monday. Please contact us if you do not receive a second e-mail from us within two business days confirming shipment of your order.
Parcels weighing less than 5 kg (only powders) can be shipped by Insured Ordinary Mail or Speed Services, but the address for delivery must be a postal address or a post office (alternatively a Post Net). Courier Services are available for any size parcel. Alternatively you can send your own courier company to collect your parcel after payment have been confirmed and received.
Delivery via Parcel Post normally takes 3 - 5 days, while courier normally deliver within 3 days. Please note this does not include weekend deliveries. If a customer specifically requires a weekend delivery this can only be effected through courier services at additional costs a quotation will be provided for each order.
