For orders over R1000, The Lemon Box delivers FREE throughout South Africa with either standard, post office or pick up point deliveries depending on where the shopper is based.
For orders under R1000, The Lemon Box charges a standard, non-refundable delivery fee of R90 to R150. Should a shopper in an outlying area wish to have their order delivered via standard delivery, a set delivery fee of R150 is charged irrespective of order value.
Delivery takes place during office hours and the shopper cannot select the exact date, or time, for the delivery.
There are no deliveries after hours, over weekends or on public holidays. Please take this into consideration when selecting your delivery address.
During checkout, the buyer indicates where in South Africa you require delivery to and based on your delivery address and postal code, The Lemon Box will indicate which delivery options are available.
In the case of standard delivery, your parcel will be delivered to the address you specified in the checkout process within 3 - 4 working days. If nobody is present at the address at the time of delivery, our courier will make a second attempt to deliver on the next working day. The courier will try once more (third attempt), and if at that time there is still no one to sign for the parcel, the parcel will be returned to our warehouse and a return will be processed for the goods. You will be refunded via EFT. Should a delivery fee have been charged on the order, this will not be reimbursed, given that the courier has attempted delivery on numerous occasions.
In the case of post office delivery, your order will be delivered to the post office nearest to your address within the postal code you selected. If the parcel is not collected within 30 days of it being delivered to the post office, the parcel will be returned to our warehouse and a return will be processed for the goods. You will be refunded via EFT.
In the case of a pick up point delivery, your order will be delivered to your selected pick up point. If the parcel is not collected within 8 calendar days of being delivered, the parcel will be returned to our warehouse and a return will be processed for the goods. You will be refunded via EFT.
Standard Delivery TimeframesDelivery time frames for standard delivery depend on your delivery address, postal code and selected delivery option. Normally deliveries will take 3 – 4 working days.
