How Do I Track My Order?

Once we’ve received your order from our suppliers, we’ll send you an e-mail with tracking details. If in doubt, contact us.

Please note:

  • The countdown in terms of the shipping period begins once your payment has been authorized. For credit cards this means that once the bank gives us an authorization code. For cash deposits and Internet transfers this means once the funds reflect in our bank account. For cheque deposits, this means once the funds have been cleared, which is usually only 7 days after the deposit.
  • Business days are defined as Mondays to Fridays, excluding public holidays.
