Estimated order value and final order value

The order total shown in your “trolley” before you place your order is an estimated total only. Your order confirmation email that we send you will also note your total estimate order value. The final order value is the actual price you will pay for your Groceries (plus courier/freight charge) and may change from the estimated order value for the following reasons:

  • Variable weight items – if you have ordered Grocery items that need to be weighed (such as produce, meat and deli items ) or are pre-packed items that are of variable weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the item picked (at the unit price displayed on online store at the time you place your order). Our employee will do their best to ensure that the items you actually get and pay for weigh as close as possible to what you ordered.
  • Specially requested items – we may provide you the option to make special requests for Grocery items. If you have ordered any “specially requested items”, the final value of your order may increase where we are able to supply you those items, as the price for any “specially requested items” are only added to your order total once we confirm they are available and our employee pick those items for you.

The final value for variable weight items will be calculated using the unit price listed on @food CULTURE online store at the time of your order (or updated), but using the weight of the item when those items are picked by our employee.

The final value for substitutions and specially requested items will be calculated based on the price of those Grocery items when they are picked by our employee.

For all other Groceries, your final order value will be calculated based on the prices of those Groceries listed on @food CULTURE online store at the time of your order (or updated order).

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 Groceries. This final invoice will be provided to you in hard copy with your Groceries when they are delivered, or emailed to you..
