I am nervous about shopping with my credit card online. How safe is it?
There is no need to be concerned about using your credit card online. It’s very safe. The system we use is called PayU. This is one of two secure online credit card platforms that have been approved by all banks. PayU has a watertight level of security and operates behind an SSL (secure socket layer) Certificate. All your details entered on the payment page are encrypted and cannot be seen by anyone. Credit card details are completely confidential and safe. PayU is fully PCI-Compliant, which means it has gone through rigorous testing and certification to ensure information is not prone to attacks or theft.
Is there any other way to make payment besides using a credit card?
The easiest and most efficient way is to pay with your credit card, as the payment will reflect in our account immediately and we can process your order instantly. We also have an instant EFT option that routes you via your chosen bank in order to complete the payment. Both payment methods require verification in order to ensure high security. Lastly, you can arrange to make a manual EFT by contacting us directly with your order. Please email [email protected] The only drawback is that we will have to wait until the payment reflects and, depending on who you bank with, it can take up to 3 days before we are able to fill the order.
Do you deliver everywhere in South Africa?
Yes. We deliver almost everywhere in South Africa, through a courier company called Courier IT. Delivery is straight to your door, and is trackable, safe and efficient. Delivery prices vary according to area. Very remote areas, for example, may be slightly more expensive than cities. You can expect your order within 3 to 5 working days of date of dispatch. A list of areas and corresponding delivery prices is available at checkout.
Do you deliver to countries outside of South Africa?
Unfortunately, we do not deliver outside of South Africa.
What is the delivery cost?
Living life well includes saving time and effort, and we’re happy to help you do so by delivering your products to your doorstep. While we partly subsidise the cost of delivery, we charge a flat fee of R50 for orders under R1000. Customers purchasing products to the value of R1000 or more can enjoy free delivery of their orders.
Does it cost more to deliver if you order more or live far away?
The delivery price remains the same up to 15 kg. If you live far away, you may have to pay a bit more than the standard fee (depending on the destination and if you want the order delivered overnight).
