If I order a product, am I guaranteed to receive it?

As we open our timeslots 7 days in advance, and only pick on the day of your reserved timeslot, we cannot guarantee stock availability. As our inventory levels change on a minute-by-minute basis, the products displayed on our website only indicate the range available, not inventory. We will always endeavour to supply your order in full as much as possible.

Are substitutions allowed?

If the item you ordered is unavailable, you may (or may not) want the picker to select a similar item. This can be set per item by clicking the ‘Add Note’ icon below an ordered product. It can also be set against a whole order using the substitutes box in the checkout.

If I ‘allow substitutions’ what price will I be charged for items that have been substituted?

If the item you requested is unavailable we will endeavour to select an item of equal or higher value. In this case, you will be charged the price of the originally selected item. In some circumstances we may need to substitute with a lower value product and in this case, we will charge you the lower prices. If we are unable to supply a substitute you will not be charged for the item.

Is there a maximum number of items that can be ordered?

We limit to Household or Personal use quantities. However if you wish to order outside normal household quantities please contact the customer service team on 1800 289 394 Monday – Friday 8.00am – 5.00pm or email prior to ordering for further assistance.
