To arrange Saturday or special deliveries, contact us at 012 348 3693 or email@example.com.
Can I change my delivery address?
We can’t make changes to your delivery address once the couriers have collected your order.
Who can sign for my parcel?
Our couriers deliver door-to-door, which means that the parcel is delivered to the address and not the person unless otherwise specified. So if the parcel is delivered to the address, it is confirmed as delivered, whether left at reception, staff or security.
Most courier companies have a contactless system to get packages delivered as safely and efficiently as possible. They have introduced an electronic OTP system, which will replace the paper waybill currently in use.
If the receiver is not available an OTP can be sent to another designated individual (I.e. a family member or colleague) in order for the parcel to be delivered.
How do I track my order online?
Once your order has been collected, we will send you the courier company’s name, the tracking number and a website link to track it online.
What if an item is out of stock / awaiting stock?
Our website inventory is automatically updated multiple times daily to show if an item is "In Stock" or "Awaiting Stock", however, should for any reason any goods not be in stock, we will contact you immediately to make the appropriate arrangement.
If an "Awaiting Stock" status appears, please feel free to call to get an estimated time of arrival. "Awaiting Stock" does in no way mean it's a permanent condition and it may potentially change.
If some of the requested items are out of stock and others are in stock, one of our consultants will contact you to enquire if you want part or full shipment.
Why do we require a valid delivery address and contact number?
If you require your order to be delivered, these details are extremely important since the couriers require this information to make a successful delivery. We cannot book a parcel for delivery if we do not have contact numbers or complete physical addresses.
We require a South African contact number for delivery, to ensure guaranteed communication.
We cannot deliver to post boxes, since we do not make use of the South African postal service and couriers do not deliver to post boxes.
We can however use PostNet, if required. Express delivery does not apply to PostNet deliveries.
The Fine Print
Outdoorphoto gives its utmost to serve customers as quickly as possible. In actual fact, it excites us to do it quicker every day. It is, however, a reality that the shipping industry is sometimes subject to strikes and other delays, hence the need for more than one company. It is most certainly in the minority that a problem arises. Should any delay happen, we will follow up, lodge and handle queries with the particular courier company.
If you have any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at 012 348 3693.
