We understand that many other online stores offer free delivery options but as we are a small local business, we have to pay our couriers and we would rather be upfront about delivery rates and not hide delivery fees in the product price. This also helps us to bring you the best prices on our products. 

Time frame to receiving an order

Delivery usually takes between 2-7 working days, however due to unforeseen circumstances, stock clearance issues and supplier delays, it could take longer up to 12 working days. The absolute maximum delivery time may take up to 30 days in severe cases but this will be communicated to you every step of the way.

We will notify you if we are unable to deliver your order during the stipulated Delivery Period. You may then, within 7 (seven) days of receiving such notification elect whether or not to cancel your order. If you elect to cancel your order, we will reimburse you for the purchase price.

Retail Therapy Online’s obligation to deliver a product to you is fulfilled when we deliver the product to the physical address nominated by you for delivery of the order. Retail Therapy Online is not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of a product, after it has delivered the product to the physical address nominated by you.

Signing for delivery

You need to sign for your delivery, we don’t want to get your parcel in the wrong hands! If, however you are happy to allow someone else to accept your parcel on your behalf, you may instruct the driver when he calls you to deliver. If we are delivering to a business address and you are unavailable, the courier will leave the parcel and have it signed by the receptionist.
