Frequently Asked Questions

( and Other Things to Help Your Online Shopping Experience Run as Smoothly and Easily as Possible )


Questions on Making Changes on Your Order

If you change your mind regarding size, colour, style or shipping method, send us an e-mail to onlinesales@wildebees.co.za.

HOWEVER – if you have already paid for your order and received the e-mail to confirm that your order is processing, there is nothing we can do to change the order for you. We cannot make changes to sizes, colours, styles and especially not shipping methods.


Questions on Contacting a Person Who Works with the Parcels

Give us a call at 011-979-3060 and choose option 5. Should someone not be available to assist you right away, choose option 1 and leave us a message. We will call you back as soon as we can (before the day ends.)

However, we do prefer contact via e-mail so we can have everything on record. Send us an e-mail to onlinesales@wildebees.co.za.

We do not use social media (Facebook, TikTok and Instagram) for communication. We will always direct you to our e-mail address. We will send the occasional WhatsApp for quick communication, but only in rare cases.


Questions on the Ordering Process

Start by adding items to your cart. How do you do this? Simply click on an item you’d like to purchase – choose an option (in other words choose your size) and decide on the quantity (how much you want to order) then click ‘Add to Cart.’

Once you’re ready to Checkout – head to your Shopping Cart. (Look for the icon that looks like a Shopping Bag.) Here you will find all the items that you’ve ordered – if you missed something, you can update your cart or continue your shopping spree. If you’re happy with everything in your cart, you can proceed to your Checkout.

Now you will need to fill in all of your details. Note that the areas with an asterisk (*) are areas that you absolutely need to fill in – you will not be able to complete your order without filling them in.

Make sure you enter your phone number correctly as this is the only communication option the couriers use. If you punch in a digit too much or too little (or even a wrong one), they will struggle to contact you and this will delay your delivery.

[ If you chose Postnet – Postnet as delivery option, please specify to which Postnet we must send the parcel. ]

Remember to read our T’s and C’s before you place your order. Decide whether your billing and shipping address is the same and when you’re ready – do the EFT for your order manually or via Payfast. Remember to use your order number as reference when doing your EFT. Should you fail to do so, the ordering process will be delayed by 2-3 working days.

You will now receive an e-mail to confirm that we have received your order. Give it a few days’ time for the money to reflect in our account. Soon, you will receive an e-mail to confirm the processing of your order and soon after you’ll receive your tracking number, which, means your order is on its way.

Delivery takes 2-5 working days after your order was processed.

Questions on Shipping and Delivery in SA

We can ship anywhere in South Africa – to your nearest Postnet or to your door.

Postnet shipping means your parcel will be delivered to a Postnet and you will have to fetch it from them. Please remember to specify to which Postnet we must send the parcel when you choose this option. This takes 2-3 working days after your order was processed and you’ve received an e-mail confirming the processing of your order.
If you fail to specify to which Postnet we must send your order and it gets sent to a Postnet NOT of your choosing or liking, it is YOUR responsibility to call that Postnet and schedule a redirect or a direct delivery to your address. The extra fees linked to this will also be your responsibility to pay.

When placing your order online take careful notice when you checkout your order.
Select your courier option as either Door to Door or Postnet to Postnet or Own Courier / Collect in Store.

The Door to Door option is delivery to your door and takes 2-5 working days after your order was processed and you’ve received an e-mail confirming the processing of your order.) We DO NOT offer Overnight or Same Day Delivery services. Should you want a parcel delivered to you overnight, you will need to send your own couriers.

You are also more than welcome to come pick up the parcel from our shop in Bredell yourself or via use of your own couriers. Note that you must have your order number ready (or give your order number to your courier). We cannot release a parcel without an order number.

We do not use PEP Paxi or any other courier. We only use Postnet and The Courier Guy.


Questions on ‘Own Courier / Collecting in-store’

You are more than welcome to come collect your parcel from our Official Shop in Bredell. You are also more than welcome to send your own couriers to come collect form our store in Bredell.

Please note you can only collect from this premises, not from any other shop reselling Wildebees.

This option works fantastic when you need an overnight delivery or a same-day delivery as we do not offer these. You will find that it is mostly the cheapest option as well.

Please note: You cannot pick-up a parcel without a confirmation e-mail! If you haven’t received an e-mail to confirm that your parcel is ready for collection, then we cannot release the parcel. The e-mail is sent directly after your parcel is packed and checked – should you send your couriers (or come to the shop) prior to receiving this e-mail, you will leave empty handed as your parcel isn’t ready yet.

When collecting your parcel (or sending your courier to pick-up the parcel) we will need your order number and the name the order was made on. If you didn’t use your business’ name when you placed your order, you cannot send your courier with your business’ name to pick the order up. You need to use the exact details as they are on your order when collecting. If you use different details, the collection process will be delayed.


Questions on Shipping and Delivery Outside of SA

We do offer the service of international delivery to all countries except the UK. Due to the war we can temporarily not ship to Belarus, Russia, Brazil and Ukraine.
