2. How long will my order take to arrive?

We aim to delight our customers by delivering our orders in the quickest possible time.

Most of our deliveries to major centres take place within 48 hours. However, things do happen that are outside of our control, so please always allow up to 72 hours (3 working days) for your delivery to reach you.As a result of the lockdown, please allow an additional 2 working days (5 working days in total) for all orders to be delivered in the Western Cape and Gauteng; and 7 workings for Kwazulu-Natal. As indicated on certain specialty product pages, the delivery estimate for those items may be longer than the 3 working days so kindly allow more time for these items to reach you.

For remote and outlying areas please allow up to 10 working days for your delivery to reach you.

  • Temporarily unavailable, we will notify you thereof as well as the anticipated delay in delivery and, unless you agree to wait for such longer period for delivery, or accept delivery of another product instead, Absolute Pets will issue a refund in respect of that product to you or give you the option for a credit voucher to an amount equal to the price paid for the product (plus any additional charges applied**).
  • Discontinued / Permanently unavailable we will notify you and, unless you agree to accept another product instead, Absolute Pets will issue a refund in respect of that product to you or give you the option for a credit voucher to an amount equal to the price paid for the product (plus any additional charges applied**).

4. Late Deliveries

The Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002 ("ECT Act") entitles you to cancel your purchase within 7 days’ notice if the products you have purchased are not delivered within the agreed delivery period as specified in the our Delivery Policy. Certain items for sale on the website do have a lead time for delivery published on the product detail pages and need to be taken into account as part of our delivery policy. Should you choose to cancel an order which has not been received within our delivery times, items either need to be:

  • not accepted and returned with the courier upon delivery; or
  • if already received, returned to Absolute Pets in their original state.

All order cancellations must be done via the Absolute Pets customer services team by calling 021 510 0897 or emailing online@absolutepets.com. We will then refund you as per our refund policy.
