What is your shipping & delivering policy?

Once payment is received, it takes between 3 to 5 working days to dispatch your order. Thereafter you add on the shipping time, depending on which option you choose:

Within South Africa:

Shipping options available at the checkout:

1.) Post Office to Post Office, which starts at R46.40 (depending on weight): 3 – 5 working days (tracking number is provided and can be tracked by visiting

2.) Overnight (only on week days) or Economic (2 – 3 days), Courier with the Courier Guy depending on the weight of your items.

International Orders:

We send small orders with the South African Post Office and have calculated the costs which you will see upon checkout. Orders take 5 to 15 working days to ship. If the shipping cost is too expensive, please contact me and we will see if there is any way that I can bring it down.


Large Orders:

If large quantities are ordered, this must also be taken into consideration, so please allow for extra delivery time.

Post Office T+Cs:

There are occasions where factors outside of our control can delay the delivery of an order, so we ask for your patience if this happens on the odd occurrence. Once your order is on its way, we will be in touch again to let you know.

Should you need us to resend any parcels which are returned to us due to an incorrect or incomplete address listed on the order form, and/or parcels which have not been collected from the post office after 1 month and is therefore returned to us, you will incur an additional charge of approximately R46.40 for the delivery.
