Once an order is dispatched from our premises, we (Melk & Heuning), are not responsible for any losses or damages to products that happened while in transit.  Insurance for all parcels can be requested as an order note on checkout.

Shipping is charged at R99 for orders regardless of the ordering amount or parcel size.  Processing time 3 days. Delivery times vary according to area.  Expect delivery times of between 3-5 days .

Damages and issues

Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

returns & exchanges

We have a 30-day return policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return.  To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unused, and in its original packaging.  You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase. To start a return, you can contact us at orders@melkenheuning.co.za.  If you return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package.  Items send back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

Exceptions / non returnable items

Certain types of items cannot be returned, like perishable goods, custom products (such as special orders), and personal care goods (such as beauty products).  We also do not accept returns for hazardous materials, flammable liquids, or gases.  Please get in touch if you have questions or concerns about your specific item.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards.Exchanges

The fastest way to ensure you get what you want is to return the item you have, and once the return is accepted, make a separate purchase for the new item.


We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not.  If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
