    Selecting Delivery during the checkout process
    If your order consists of products that are in stock and available immediately and products that are on order and need a certain amount of time to be hand-made personally for you, we will wait until we have received all ordered products from our online suppliers before we send them to you.

    In such a case, if you want to avoid a longer waiting period for the products that are available immediately, we recommend that you create and send separate orders, and be aware that each order will include a separate courier fee. For instance, you send one order containing the products in stock and available immediately, and another order for the product that will be hand-made for you and needs a certain amount of time to be ready for delivery.

    Selecting Collection from the Market during the checkout process:
    If your order consists of products that are in stock and available immediately and products that are on order and need a certain amount of time to be hand-made personally for you, the Market will contact you to discuss your preference of waiting for all products to be delivered and then collecting the entire order, or making two collections as the products become available for collection.

    The cost of delivery depends on the delivery address. Local deliveries within Johannesburg come with a delivery fee of R50, sourounding areas like Pretoria, Centurion or Heidelberg will be charged at R65, main centres like Durban or Cape Town lie between R80 and R90, rural areas will be charged at R150. The courier fee will be displayed in the checkout process before your payment. Delivery fees are subject to change.
