Receiving your ordered items

It is your duty to ensure that you provide us with the correct and complete delivery address and all other necessary contact particulars, including your full name, contactable telephone numbers, and valid email addresses etc., when you register your account with us or when you submit your online order.

Delivery of all online orders shall be made based on the address provided by you online. We are not responsible for any failed delivery caused by incorrect provision of delivery address. An online order shall be deemed fulfilled once the ordered items are handed over to the courier to be delivered to the address provided by you.

Please ensure that someone is available to receive the ordered items during the selected time slot and delivery date. At the time of delivery, if there is no one present to receive the ordered items, the courier will contact you or leave a note informing you that a delivery was attempted and providing you with the contact information to arrange re-delivery. It is your duty to make the necessary arrangement with the courier for the re-delivery. If the courier cannot contact you and you fail to contact the courier for re-delivery, the delivery will be deemed abandoned. The online order therefore will be deemed delivered and we will not entertain any request for re-delivery or refund.
