3. PLACING AN ORDER


3.1 General (Delivery or Click & Collect)
We offer two options for receiving your Products. We can deliver them direct to your nominated delivery address, or you can pick them up from Your Chosen Store (i.e. Click & Collect). The delivery methods available to you depend on the store you choose. We set out these two options in more detail below.
 
3.2 Minimum order value
The total estimated value of the products in your order will be shown on the “Check-Out” page and must meet a minimum value before being accepted. This minimum value will be detailed on the website and is dependent on your chosen store and delivery method. 
 
3.3 Order cut-off times
Orders for Delivery and Click & Collect must be placed before the order cut-off times (Order Cut-Off Time(s)) determined by us (the relevant cut-off time for your order). Order Cut-Off Times may change from time to time as determined by us and may vary between our stores.
 
3.4 Pick-up and Delivery Timeslots
There may be a limit to the number of orders that can be delivered or picked-up during each available timeslot. We will do what we reasonably can to deliver or make your order available for pick-up within the timeslot selected by you. If it is not possible for us to deliver or make your order available for pick-up within the timeslot you have selected, we will try to contact you using the contact information you provided to us during registration (or subsequently updated by you).
 
3.5 Estimated order value and final order value
The value of the Products shown in your “basket” before you place your order is an estimated total only. The final order value is the actual price you will pay for your Products plus any service fees for Delivery and Click & Collect and as amended as set out in clause 4 below (Final Order Value).

3.6 Confirmation of order
Once you have successfully submitted your order we will send you an order confirmation to the email address you have provided to us. Please check your spam or junk folders in case our email has been directed there. If your order confirmation has not come through within 2 hours then please call Your Chosen Store.

Please review your confirmation email when it comes through to check that everything is correct. If something does not look right, then please contact Your Chosen Store.

3.7 Grocery item availability and substitutions
We will do all that we reasonably can to supply the Products you’ve ordered, but in some cases they may be unavailable. All Products, including specials, are subject to availability. Our goal is never to be out of stock, but in case we are, before you check-out we will ask you if you would like to allow us to substitute similar products for Products in your order that are not available. If you have not agreed to allow for substitutions then any Products in your order that are not available will not be supplied and you will not be charged for those items. If you have agreed to allow for substitutions, any substituted products will be an equal or better quality item at an equal or lower price (compared to the price listed on the website when you ordered the unavailable Products). Where we are able to, we will try to contact you to discuss your preferred substitutions.

3.8 Maximum number of Products
We reserve the right to limit the number of each product we will supply in any transaction. You must not purchase items through New World Online for the purposes of resale. If we suspect for any reason that you are doing so, we may in our sole discretion suspend or terminate your access to New World Online and/or we may refuse to fulfil any order you place through the website.

3.10 Instructions
When placing your order, please tell us in the relevant comments section any special instructions for our Personal Shoppers picking your Products. For example, in that section you could ask for “yellow firm bananas”, “ripe avocados”, or “please select items with the latest expiry date”. While we will endeavour to meet any special requests you may have, you acknowledge that the interpretation of your instructions is subjective and therefore our Personal Shopper’s interpretation of your instructions may vary to your interpretation.

4. FINAL ORDER VALUE

The price you pay for your Products will change from the estimated order value for the following reasons:

4.1 Variable weight items
If you have ordered Products that need to be weighed (such as produce, seafood, meat and deli items from our fresh food departments) or are pre-packed items that are of variable weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the item picked by our Personal Shoppers (at the unit price displayed on the website at the time you placed your order). Our Personal Shoppers will use their reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Products you receive weigh as close as possible to the weight you ordered.  You agree to accept and pay on the weight of the Product they have obtained for you.  
 
4.2 Substitutions
If the Product you have ordered is not available and you have agreed that substitutions are allowed).
 
4.3 No substitutions
If the Product you have ordered is not available and you have not agreed to allow for Product substitutions,
 
4.4 Specially requested items
We may provide you the option to make special requests for Products. If you have ordered any “specially requested items”, the final value of your order will increase where we are able to supply you those Products, as the price for any specially requested items are only added to your order total once we confirm they are available and our Personal Shoppers pick those Products for you.
 
4.5 Final Invoice
Where the Final Order Value of your order is different from your estimated order value, this will be displayed in your final invoice for your Products. The final invoice will be provided to you in hard copy with your Products when they are collected and delivered.

5. “CLICK & COLLECT” OPTION


5.1 Pick-up service
If your chosen delivery method is “Click & Collect” then you can order online and collect your Products from Your Chosen Store. You can reserve a Pick-up Timeslot when you select your Products on the website.

If that is not possible we will try to contact you using the contact information you provided to us.

 6. “DELIVER TO ADDRESS” OPTION


6.1 Delivery to your nominated address
If your chosen delivery method is “Deliver to Address” then you can order online and choose this option provided it is available at Your Chosen Store. We can deliver your order to any nominated address within your chosen Delivery Timeslot providing your nominated address is within Your Chosen Store’s delivery zone. We will do what we reasonably can to deliver within your chosen Delivery Timeslot. If that is not possible we will try to contact you using the contact information you provided to us.

You must ensure that the nominated address is safely and readily accessible. Please provide any specific delivery instructions in the “Details for the delivery team” section at the time of placing your order e.g. “Please leave Products by the back door and close the garden gate”. We reserve the right to refuse delivery where we or any delivery agent we engage consider it unsafe to enter e.g. where we or our agents consider there are aggressive dogs or other hazards at the delivery address.

6.4 If you are not there when we deliver
You can tell us in the relevant comments section at the time of placing your order whether you would like your Products left at the nominated address if you are not there at the time of delivery. Without these instructions we will return your Products to Your Chosen Store if you or a member of your household is not at your nominated address during your Delivery Timeslot. We will never leave alcohol items at your nominated address if you are not there to receive them (see clause 10 below). Where your Products are returned to Your Chosen Store we will contact you to arrange the collection of your Products from Your Chosen Store. This may incur additional fees. We regret we cannot refund the delivery fee already charged.  Where Products are left at the nominated address in accordance with your delivery instructions, they are left entirely at your own risk. We do not accept any responsibility after they have been delivered including where items are lost, stolen, damaged or perish as a result of being left unattended.
