Due to the increase in bank fees we had no choice but to add a low order fee to our website. All orders below R50-00 will be charged a low order fee of R20-00. If you order for more than R50-00 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 R50-00 we actually make a loss and no business can survive on a loss. We had two choices, refuse orders below R50-00 or add the low order fee to orders below R50-00. We think the low order fee is the best option.
We send all our orders with either The Courier Guy, Post Net services, Aramex couriers, Pep Paxi store to store or the postal service. Please note: We will ONLY send your parcel with the post office if there is NO Pep in your town. Although we give you a delivery option choice at checkout, it may sometimes be necessary to substitute the courier you've chosen with another one.
If you wish to make use of a spesific service, please let us know. If we receive no instructions from you, we will use the service of our choice.
We will send you your tracking number as well as a telephone number or website address to track your parcel.

Please note: We will ONLY send your parcel with the post office if Paxi through Pep or a courier service is not available in your town. We have a lot of problems with the post office not accepting parcels.

Please contact us should for a manual quote if this is the only option available for your location.
