Due to the increase in bank fees we had no choice but to add a low order fee to our website. All orders below R30-00 will be charged a low order fee of R20-00. If you order for more than R30-00 the low order fee will be removed from your order total. We apologize for this, but unfortunately it has become necessary. Bank fees are such that with orders of less than R30-00 we actually make a loss and no business can survive on a loss. We had two choices, refuse orders below R30-00 or add the low order fee to orders below R30-00. We think the low order fee is the best option.
We send all our orders with either Fastway couriers, The Courier Guy, K4A Logistics (they work through UTI or RAM couriers), Post Net services, Pargo point to point delivery, Pep Paxi store to store or the postal service.
Although Fastway couriers and the post office are the same price, Fastway couriers doesn't cover the whole country yet.
