b) Fridge items will be sent with an Express courier at our own cost, in order to ensure the shortest amount of transit time.

c) Fridge items may be sent separately from non-refrigerated products.

d) Where the order contains other products that do not require the cold chain procedure & qualify for standard shipping, only the fridge item will be sent as Express.

 

(7) BULK ORDERS

We reserve the right to classify orders after placement within our site as “Bulk Orders”. Bulk Orders have the potential to include extra shipping and handling charges, and also longer processing times.

In the event that an order is classified as a “Bulk Order” by us, we are not to be held to standard delivery or fulfilment timeframes and have the right to refuse supply of the requested quantities.

We make no guarantee of delivery or fulfilment timeframes and will communicate to you the length of the fulfilment process to the best of our ability.

We reserve the right at any time to terminate the Bulk Order fulfilment process.

An order may be classified by us as a “Bulk Order” in the, but not limited to, following circumstances:

a) The Order contains a request for products that exceed normal retail quantities;

  1. The Order contains products that exceed a standard weight range;
  2. The Order contains products that exceed standard cubic volume range.
  3. Multiple orders placed during any 7 day period, that in combined volume, meet or exceed the Bulk Order criteria.


We are not required to inform you should your order be classified as a “Bulk Order”, yet will notify you should we require further handling or shipping charges to be paid for the shipment, before the order can be dispatched.

There is no Bulk Order flat rate shipping or handling fee. Bulk Orders may be subject to an extra cost at a variable rate to be determined on an order by order basis at the discretion of Superpharmacy

It is not possible to split shipments to circumvent the Bulk Order process, and attempts to do so will be subject to our order handling at our discretion.
