FAQs / T&Cs for Ruby Orchard shoppers

How do I buy your lovely things?

It’s so easy – go to our ‘shop’ page, browse our products and just click the ‘add to cart’ button, and then proceed to checkout. You’ll need to give us your billing and shipping information, and leave any additional information we may need to know. You will not need to make payment yet… an invoice will be sent to you with the shipping costs included.

What payment options are there?

The Ruby Orchard currently offers payment by EFT or Zapper.  Once an order has been received, an invoice will be emailed to you from our company The Ruby Orchard pty LTD with our banking details. Alternatively you can pay straight away using Zapper.

How do you ship products to me?

We use a reliable and efficient courier company to ensure you receive your products on time and in pristine condition. Our courier service delivers to your door, the cost is slightly higher then using the postal service but we know this is the most effective method for our shoppers. Your order will have a tracking number and will be shipped to a physical address.

What are your shipping costs?

All our courier prices are quoted on invoicing depending on your location and parcel size.

Can I use my own courier company?

Sure! Just let us know who will be collecting your goods and when!

How long does it take for me to get my lovely Ruby Orchard products?

We aim to have your parcel with you within 48 hours. Once you have received your invoice, we will wait for your payment, the quicker you pay and send proof of payment, the quicker your parcel will be dispatched! Courier delivery times are from the time the package is dispatched. Please ensure that a physical address is provided and that someone will be available to sign for the delivery which will take place between 08h00 – 17h00 on week days only.  Our Courier cannot deliver to outlying Farms or PO Box addresses.

I’ve been waiting for more than 5 days for my parcel – what now?

There are occasions where factors outside of our control can delay a parcel, so we ask for your patience if this happens on the odd occurrence. Once your goods are on their way, you will receive the confirmation email with your tracking number.

What if I missed the delivery from the courier?

For any parcels which are returned to us due to an incorrect or incomplete address listed on the order address, and/or if the parcel has not been collected from the deport after 1 month and is therefore returned to us – should you need us to resend you the parcel, you will incur an additional fee for the shipping once again. We cannot be held responsible for parcels which are returned to us due to the fact that it was not collected in the specific time frame from the courier depot.

What countries will you ship to?

If you’re an international customer please get in touch via email and we’ll arrange quotations for international shipping. We’re always willing to help.
