We usually have plenty of stock available but if for some reason we don't have what you ordered we will contact you to let you know. We will let you know when we expect to get more and will ship it to you immediately upon delivery.
Q. Can I place an order for delivery to a different address?
Yes. In the checkout stage you can specify an "alternative shipping address" you want your order to go to. Please give a contact number for the alternative shipping address.
Q. What payment options do I have?
EFT Bank Transfer: you will receive an invoice for your order by email with our banking details and how to pay. We will despatch your order as soon as we receive confirmation of payment.
Cash or Visa/Master card (Office ONLY): upon personal collection of goods at our office in Johannesburg, you can pay with cash or use our card machine for Visa/Master cards only.
Q. How do I pay?
Once you place your order through our website and if you are paying by EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer) we will contact you with further instructions on how to pay. If you are collecting your order personally, at our office in Joburg, we will accept cash payment on arrival or you can pay by bank card using any Visa/Master card.
Q. Are there any bank charges?
EFT (Internet Payment): No bank charges added if making payment via the internet.
ATM (Cash Machine): We do receive a minimal bank charge if you pay at the ATM but we do not add it to your final invoice.
Over the counter inside the bank: If you pay over the counter at the bank we end up receiving a substantial bank charge which we will have to add to your order invoice. This additional charge will need to be paid before your order is sent. If you want to avoid this charge then please pay by EFT (internet) or use the ATM (cash machine).
Q. Can I avoid bank charges?
To avoid bank charges being added to your order it is advised to do an EFT (payment via the internet) or make a payment at the ATM (bank cash machine). There are no bank charges passed on to you with these two methods. DO NOT pay inside a bank at a teller as you will be charged a minimum of R60 in bank charges.
Q. What are my delivery options?
We courier your order to any address in South Africa. You can also collect your order from us free of charge. Delivery options are:
Courier: door to door service.
Personal Collection: collect from us at our location. (Please call or email to arrange a time to collect).

We offer the option of delivery insurance cover at an additional cost. The insurance will cover any loss or damage of your shipped products. Once your delivery has been shipped we cannot accept responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged goods in transit. Any loss or damage without insurance will be at the loss or expense of the customer, so it is advised to accept insurance cover.
Q. How long will my delivery take?
We despatch all orders, unless otherwise stated, within one working day of receiving full payment. The delivery times below are not guaranteed by us but a guide supplied by the courier services we use. We will endeavour to ensure you receive your order in a timely manner but once your order gets despatched we accept no more responsibility on delivery time.

Unforeseen circumstances e.g. adverse weather, closed roads, strikes etc. could prolong the delivery time.

Q. Where does Theta Health deliver to?
South Africa: We deliver to any address in South Africa.
Please note: We no longer ship to international destinations outside South Africa due to import/export regulations and additional admin.
Q. Do I have to receive my delivery personally?
No. It just needs someone at the house or location address that is recorded on the delivery note. You will also need to provide a contact phone number for the courier company to contact you if needed.
Q. What do I do if I wish to return something I purchased?
You are welcome to return any goods purchased within 7 days of receiving them. We can only accept goods for return that are still in their original packaging and condition. We cannot accept goods for return once they have been opened or used unless there is a definite quality issue.
You will have to pay to have the item couriered or posted back to us. If it is a definite quality issue with the product and as soon as we receive it we will issue you with a credit note on your next purchase to the same value of the return postage. Proof of postage will be required. Our policy is to deduct a 10% handling fee from the original price if the return of the goods requires a lot of administration to get it back. Or you can return it personally.
Q. What do I do if there is a quality issue with my product?
We do try to ensure all of our products are of high quality but if you find your product to be of poor quality i.e. doesn't taste as it usually does, content looks bad, then please let us know. Some of our products do have strange smells and tastes and the consistency can vary slightly, but if you feel there is something wrong with it then let us know so we can rectify the problem.
Q. What do I do if I receive goods damaged or broken in transit?
If you do not receive your order in mint condition or if anything is broken or damaged please let us know immediately so that we can ensure the situation is rectified with the courier service. If you can, please take photographs of the damaged item(s) and send them to us as this helps improve the way products are sent. Once your delivery gets despatched we cannot be held responsible for losses, breakages, etc. whilst in transit. Unless you have opted for delivery insurance you will have no recourse for losses or damages, etc. So we advise you to ask for delivery insurance when ordering.
