Deliveries & Collections
This Deliveries and Collections page outlines important information regarding By Nature’s delivery and collection policies. Please read this page carefully before placing your order. By using our delivery or collection services, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions stated below.
Delivery Zones and Delivery Methods
- We offer delivery services to select regions in South Africa. Please contact our customer support team to check if we deliver to your location.
- Delivery options, including delivery methods and companies, may vary depending on your location and the size/weight of your order. The available options will be displayed during the checkout process on our website.
- We may use third-party delivery services to fulfill your order. If you decide you use your own third-party delivery service, we are not responsible for any delays, damages or loss that may occur during transit. Any claims for such issues should be directed to your courier company.
- We strive to process and dispatch orders as quickly as possible. Delivery times may vary depending on the delivery method chosen and your location.
- We cannot provide a guarantee for specific delivery times; therefore, please anticipate a delivery time of approximately 3-5 working days for your order, keeping in mind that any provided delivery time frames are estimations.
- Estimated delivery times are based on average delivery times. Please note that unexpected delays can occur due to factors beyond our control, such as adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances.
- We aim to provide convenient and affordable delivery and collection services for a seamless shopping experience.
- Free delivery for orders over R600: We believe in rewarding our valued customers, which is why we provide free delivery for all orders over R600. This offer is applicable to deliveries within South African main city centres only. Whether you're ordering a single item or multiple products, as long as your order total exceeds R600, you won't have to worry about any delivery charges.
- Delivery charges for orders below R600: For orders below R600, we charge a flat delivery fee of R165. This fee covers the cost of packaging, handling and shipping your items securely to your specified address within South African main city centres.
- The applicable delivery charges will be displayed during the checkout process on our website.
- Additional charges may apply for deliveries outside South African Main City Centres or special requests. Contact our customer support team for customised delivery quotes and assistance.
- For delivered orders, we provide tracking information once your order has been dispatched. You will receive an email notification containing the tracking details and instructions on how to track your package.
- Please note that tracking information may take some time to be updated by the delivery company. If you encounter any issues or have questions regarding your delivery, please contact our customer support team and we will assist you.
- In addition to our delivery services, we may offer the option for customers to collect their orders directly from our physical address or a designated collection point. The availability of this option will be indicated during the checkout process on our website.
- If you choose the collection option, we will provide you with the necessary information, including the collection location, opening hours and any specific instructions for the collection process.
- Please ensure you collect your order within the specified time frame, as indicated during the checkout process or communicated to you separately. Failure to collect your order within the designated time frame may result in cancellation or additional charges.
- If you are unable to collect your order personally, you may authorise a representative to collect it on your behalf. Please provide your representative with the necessary identification and any authorisation documentation requested by our staff.
Order Verification and Damages
- Upon delivery or collection, please carefully inspect your order for any damages or discrepancies. If you notice any issues, including damaged packaging or missing items, please contact our customer support team immediately.
- We may request additional information, such as photographs or detailed descriptions, to assist in resolving any issues related to damaged or incorrect items. Please cooperate with our team to facilitate the resolution process.
Address Accuracy and Re-Delivery
- It is your responsibility to provide accurate delivery or collection address details during the order placement process. We cannot be held liable for delays or non-delivery resulting from incorrect or incomplete address information provided by you.
- If the delivery or collection attempt is unsuccessful due to an incorrect address or if you are unavailable to receive the package, additional charges may apply for re-delivery or re-collection. We will contact you to arrange for a re-delivery and inform you of any associated fees.
Change of Delivery or Collection Details
- If you need to change the delivery or collection details for your order, such as the address or preferred collection location, please contact our customer support team as soon as possible. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but please note that changes may not be possible if the order has already been sent or prepared for collection.
- Any additional costs or charges incurred due to changes in delivery or collection details, including address corrections or redirection, will be your responsibility and may be subject to additional fees.
Cancellation and Refunds
- If you wish to cancel your order, please contact our customer support team immediately. Order cancellations may be accepted if the order has not yet been dispatched or prepared for collection. Once an order has been sent or made available for collection, cancellations may not be possible.
- Refunds for cancelled orders will be processed in accordance with our Refund Policy. Please refer to our Refund Policy for detailed information on eligibility, processing times and refund methods.
