The Rooibos Online Store Shopping FAQ's
Q. Is there a minimum order amount?
Yes, we only ask that the minimum order must be R600, but bear in mind you pay a standard courier fee so make the most of the situation by ordering everything you need at one time.
Q. Is there a minimum order amount for the Rewards Programme Discount?
Yes, we only ask that the minimum order must be R600 before the 5% discount on the products will be activated.
Q. What payment methods do you offer?
Q. I am nervous about shopping with my credit card online. How safe is it?
There is no need to be concerned about using your credit card online. It is very safe. The system we use is called PayFast. This is one of two secure online credit card platforms that have been approved by all banks. PayFast has a watertight level of security and operates behind an SSL (secure socket layer) Certificate. All your details entered on the payment page are encrypted and cannot be seen by anyone. Credit card details are completely confidential and safe. PayFast is fully PCI-Compliant which means they have gone through rigorous testing and certification to ensure information is not prone to attacks or theft.
Q. Is there any other way to make payment besides using a credit card?
The easiest and most efficient way is to pay with your credit card as your payment will reflect in our account immediately and we can process your order instantly. However, we also have an internet banking option available. This means you can pay via EFT and email proof of payment to firstname.lastname@example.org. The only drawback is that we have to wait until the payment reflects and, depending on who you bank with, this can take up to 3 days and only then we will be able to fill the order.
Q. How do I make payment by Debit Card?
When you have selected your products, go to checkout and Select the PayFast option at Payment. You will get the option to pay by Debit Card (A service by payD). Then follow the steps below
Q. How does the Buy Now, Pay Later option work?
Yes, we offer Buy Now, Pay Later by mobicred (www.mobicred.co.za)
mobicred is an online account that gives buyers access to credit. The facility works in a similar fashion to retail store credit: only online. mobicred charges interest rates comparable to those of credit card providers and only levies monthly fees while the account is used (unlike most credit cards).
Existing mobicred customers can go ahead and purchase from us. At checkout you will be redirected to Payfasts website who will process the mobicred payment.
New mobicred customers will need to go to mobicred's website to create an account with them by visiting :
