How many days does it take for my order to be delivered?

Home deliveries can be scheduled from a minimum of 5 working days (excluding Sat/Sun/PH) after the date of order. Kindly note that orders logged on Sundays will be processed as Monday's orders.


Why am I unable to choose the Home-Delivery date I want?

For optimization and better management of all delivery services from all our managed school orders, we have arranged the delivery schedules based on the records of each individual schools' past year online orders.

Availability of dates for Home-Delivery orders varies from schools to schools. You may check for the available delivery dates before deciding to proceed.


Why am I unable to choose the Delivery Timing Slots I want?

Delivery Timing Slots are created and made available on a “first come, first serve” basis.

To ensure that all our online orders reach our customers as scheduled, a maximum of 150 orders per time slot have been allocated. Once slots are filled, only other available slots can be chosen.


Delivery Schedule and Timings

Separate delivery schedule and delivery partners have been pre-arranged for each of our affiliated schools' booklists to ensure smooth and timely delivery for all schools.

For the order made based on an affiliated school's booklist, you may only choose the delivery date within the delivery schedule pre-arranged for that affiliated school's booklist.

For example, if the order is made based on Nanyang Primary School's booklist, the delivery dates available for that order may differ from an order made based on Marsilling Primary School's booklist.
