Do I have to be registered to use the website?

You can browse our products online and order as a transaction guest without having to register. However, if you would like to receive newsletters and also have the site remember you for your next visit we recommend that you do register. All we need from you are some basic details such as your name and address. We do ask you for your email address and phone number so that we can contact you about your order, but we will only use these in relation to your order, and occasionally our couriers may contact you by phone if they are having difficulty delivering your parcel. You can change your privacy settings in My Account to determine whether or not we can pass on your details to anyone else.

What is the delivery time?

We aim to dispatch all orders within 2–5 working days of the order being placed. However, at busy periods such as Christmas and during a sale, the dispatch time can take a little longer. If you are in a hurry for your order, please contact us via the online@bigblue.co.za address. For more details please see delivery information.

Can I send items as gifts to a different address/to my place of work?

We can dispatch your parcel to any address, including your place of work. However, if you have paid by credit card we do need to have your invoice address (where your card is registered) to authorise your payment. Please ensure that we have both addresses.Please note that if delivering via one of our preferred couriers we will require a physical address where someone can sign for the goods.If you would prefer to have us deliver to a PO BOX we will only be able to deliver via the post office.
