  • What happens if an item is out of stock?

    Stores try their best to provide the products you have ordered but unfortunately products can sometimes be out of stock.

    If this happens, the store may offer to substitute your product as best they can. If the substituted product is cheaper  you’ll be refunded the difference. If the substitute is more expensive you won’t be charged any more than the original item. 

    Any substitutions are highlighted on your receipt. Please check this on delivery of your order and if you’re not happy with any substitutions just return them to the driver to be refunded for those items.

    Please note that refunds can take anywhere from 1-10 working days to return to your bank and this is dependent on your bank's refund policy.

  • Why was my order rejected?

    First of all, we’re sorry if your order has been rejected. Our stores aim to accept as many orders as possible, however, stores may reject orders because products are out of stock or they cannot make the allocated delivery time.
