1. Rafeeq Service - Managing Your Orders

1.1. Ordering through the Platform -  Orders must be received before posted cutoff time for a given delivery (see Delivery of Products below for details). Available delivery date and time windows and associated delivery fees and promotions will be shown during the ordering process. Delivery timeslots are available on a first-come first-served basis. To view delivery and cutoff times, visit the Delivery Info section of the Platform. Note that modified orders are subject to price changes and a change of a delivery date may not guarantee the availability of your desired items.
You may cancel orders via "Your Account" section of the Platform or by contacting our Customer Service Department at [email protected]. Please see the "Contact Us" section of the Platform for Customer Service hours.
 
1.2. Price, Availability and Substitutions. Rafeeq strives to provide you with great prices compared to the competition. Certain items may be priced differently depending on your last delivery address or the address you choose before placing items in your cart. We receive fresh products every day to assure you the highest quality. Due to the perishable nature of our products, certain products may be unavailable due to market conditions beyond our control or quality that is below our standards. If we have an item that's very similar to the item you ordered, you can select that item during check out. If you're not happy with the substitution, please email us at [email protected]. If we are unable to fulfill your entire order with the items you order or appropriate substitutions, we will use reasonable efforts to contact you prior to delivery (which may include notice in your confirmation email). Once you complete checkout, your price, or price per weight (when applicable), is guaranteed unless you placed an order for an item where we have inadvertently listed an incorrect price. In those circumstances, we reserve the right to cancel undelivered orders for such incorrectly priced products; we will contact you immediately in such circumstances, and, of course, we will not charge.
Please note: we reserve the right to limit your order or the quantity of a particular product that you may order.

1.3. Delivery Fee. A delivery fee may be added to your order. Any such fee is not a gratuity for the delivery personnel who delivers or is otherwise involved with the delivery of your order and will not be given to any such delivery personnel as a gratuity.

1.4. Variable Weight Orders. Because many perishable items are individually prepared for you, the per-item price you see in your shopping cart for variable weight items is based on an estimated weight. The final price of these variable weight items will be based on the same price per pound/ounce indicated at time of checkout, but the actual price charged is determined once we have prepared and weighed your order, and that actual price will appear on the invoice issued to you on the day of your delivery.

1.5. Minimum Purchase. Your order may be subject to minimum purchase order total, not including taxes, delivery fees, and surcharges.
 
1.6. Cancellations. Orders can be cancelled at any given time. If payment is done online, the amount will be transferred to your wallet and can be used in future orders. Amount will be transferred to your wallet after 24 hours or maximum one week time after receiving confirmation from the authorised bank.

2. Rafeeq Service - Payment

2.1. Payment options: .Customers can have 2 different payment options. Cash on delivery, card on delivery (our delivery personnel will have POS machine with them)

3. Rafeeq Service - Delivery

3.1. Delivery of Products. Rafeeq uses refrigerated trucks with freezer compartments to maintain the quality and integrity of your products. To maintain the integrity of products after delivery, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate or freeze perishable items. Frozen items must immediately be placed in a freezer. In an effort to meet the committed delivery times for all of our customers, our delivery personnel cannot wait for an inspection of the items delivered.

3.2. Delivery Requirements. To receive delivery, you must live in a residential apartment or home and you or an authorized representative must be present to receive your order from our delivery personnel during your selected delivery window. The authorized representative can accept your goods when you are not present at the time you had selected for delivery and shall accept the goods under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself. Anyone at the delivery address who receives the delivery is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. If you, your doorman, and your authorized representative are not present during your selected delivery window, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact you and reschedule delivery for the same day.

3.3. Unattended Delivery. In certain areas, Rafeeq may offer unattended delivery. If available in your area, this option is contained in the "Delivery" section of "Your Account" on our Platform. If you select the unattended delivery option, you, and not Rafeeq, are solely responsible for products that are left at your delivery location.

3.4. Limits and Adjustments to Delivery. Rafeeq delivers case sizes of a variety of different goods, including but not limited to laundry detergents and beverages. Given the heavy weight of some of these products, and our concern for the health and safety of our personnel, we have purchase limits on a variety of these items on our Platform. Additionally, in the interest of the health and safety of our personnel, in non-elevator buildings, the highest floor we can deliver to is the 3rd floor and with orders containing 3 cases or more of beverages or other heavy items, we cannot deliver above the 3rd floor. In the event of a non-functioning elevator, the preceding delivery restrictions apply

3.5. Invoices. You will receive an email invoice the day of your delivery. All of your order invoices are available in the "Your Account" section of our Platform. If something is missing from your order, please contact our Customer Service department on 24726611 or email us at [email protected]

3.6. Inclement Weather and Unforeseen Delivery Complications. In the case of inclement weather or unforeseen delivery complications, it may be necessary to make adjustments to our delivery schedule which will cause us to suspend chosen delivery dates and times. If there will be a significant delay in delivering your order, a customer service representative may call or e-mail you to let you know the status of your delivery time. We will attempt to deliver your order as quickly as possible when the conditions permit. If your designated delivery location (e.g. street closure) or day is inaccessible, rendering us unable to make the delivery, we will contact you to determine the best alternate location and/or date to make the delivery.

3.7. Tips. Rafeeq delivery personnel are allowed to accept tips. Customers are under no obligation to tip delivery personnel but have the option of doing so if exceptional service is provided by the delivery personnel.
