Is there a minimum order value?

The minimum order value is only $1.

Where does my order come from?

Your order will be picked and fulfilled from the store you’ve chosen.

Do you supply trade orders?

No, we do not supply trade customers. If we suspect that you are purchasing goods for resale, then we will not be able to fulfil your order.

You can buy most things online however there are some exceptions, such as flowers, gift cards, tobacco, hot food, oversized items and very heavy items.

Can I buy alcohol online?

Alcohol is available online for customers aged 18 years and over (please note that it is illegal to make a false declaration of age in order to purchase alcohol). Furthermore, someone aged 18 years or over needs to pick up or receive the order; a proof of ID will be required.

How do I shop from a saved list or previous order?

Go to ‘My Lists’ or ‘My Orders’, select the list/previous order you’re interested in and then select ‘Add to order’. New prices may apply to the products from your previous order.

How do I edit a list?

Go to ‘My Lists’, select the list you want to edit and follow the instructions.

What happens if a product I’m after is out of stock?

Before submitting your order you can let us know your substitution preference. If you accept substitutions, your Personal Shopper can select a similar item for you if the original item you have ordered is unavailable. Otherwise, if we can’t supply the product requested, you won’t receive another product in its place.
There are some products we won’t normally substitute, such as alcohol, baby formula, hair dye and vitamins. These products are usually specifically chosen by customers based on personal taste and preference, and therefore aren’t appropriate to substitute.

If I accept substitutions, what price will I be charged for the items that have been substituted?

If a product you have ordered is not available, we will try to substitute it with a similar product of equal or higher quality, but we will only charge you an equal or lower price.

Can I give my Personal Shopper special instructions?

Yes, you can. Just swipe up your basket and use the comment icon (top left) to add an order comment (e.g. ‘no plastic bags, please’). Alternatively, select a specific product and then use the comment icon to add a product related comment (e.g. ‘green banana, please’).

Do I need to save my trolley as I shop?

Your trolley will be saved automatically if you are logged in. Items will remain in your trolley until you purchase them. No matter what device you sign in from you’ll be able to see any items you’ve added. Please keep in mind that specials and deals are only available for a certain period of time and will be priced at the date the order is submitted.

How do I know that my order has been successfully placed?

Once you've checked out, you'll receive a confirmation email, detailing all the products, quantities and an estimated order value.

Can I choose not to get my order in plastic bags?

Yes, you can. Please leave a note in the order comments (by swiping your basket up and tapping on the comment icon) and we will do our best to comply with your request.

PRICING AND PAYMENT

Are the prices online the same as the prices in store?

  • When an item is out of stock – you won’t be charged for that item
  • If we substitute an item – you'll be charged an equal or lower price than the price of the original item

How and when is my payment processed?

Payment is then finalised when we have picked and packed your order, which in most cases is the day your order is due to be collected or delivered.

What happens if my card is declined?

Delivery fees are $15 for orders up to $199.99 and $10 for orders $200 or more.

Do I need to be at home to receive my delivery?

We strongly recommend that you are at home to receive your order. If a delivery can’t be made because you weren’t at home during your scheduled delivery time, we’ll contact you. If instructed, we can leave your order at your door (or agreed location), at which point it becomes your responsibility. If your order contains alcohol items, these cannot be left unattended, and will be returned to the store. In this instance, we will refund the amount to your chosen payment method. Additional fees may apply for re-delivery of those items.

I wasn’t at home to receive my delivery, it’s been left at my door and has now deteriorated - will you refund or replace?

No. It is your responsibility to be at home during the delivery time to receive the order. If your order is left unattended at your request, you are fully responsible for it from that point onwards.

CLICK & COLLECT

Where do I collect my groceries in store?

To collect your groceries, simply head to the lockers located at the store where you placed your order and enter the code supplied via email. In most cases lockers are situated outside the store, and there are reserved carparks in front for your convenience. In other cases lockers can be situated inside the store.

Do I need to bring anything with me when I collect my Click & Collect order?

We can only supply alcohol to customers 18 years or older, so if your order includes alcohol you will not be able to access your locker until you show a valid NZ ID to one of our team members. To get a team member to meet you at the lockers, please use the intercom located next to the lockers. Valid forms of ID include an 18+ HANZ Card, a current NZ Driver’s Licence or a current Passport. If you’re unable to show a valid ID which proves you are 18 years or older, any alcohol in your order will be removed and a refund will be issued for those withdrawn products.

How much does Click & Collect cost?

It will cost you a flat fee of $5 whatever the value of your order.
