5. How do I order random weight products?

Some fresh produce, meat and deli lines are sold by the piece, others are sold per kilogram.

Where items are sold by the piece, you can either select the ‘Add’ button multiple times until you reach the desired quantity, or type in the desired quantity and press ‘Add’. Popular lines such as bananas, apples and other items can be purchased in multiples of units however they will be charged per kilogram. The online store shows the price per kilogram but an average price per item which is how you will be charged online. When the products are picked and packed in-store you will be charged per kilogram.

Where items are sold by the kilogram, you need to enter the desired weight in the quantity box. For example, for 500 grams of leg ham, enter 0.500kg.

FoodWorks will calculate the actual weight of the item when the order is picked and processed. Therefore, the total price of your order will vary from the total listed at Checkout. If you have any special requirements for weighted products, for example “Please do not go over my weighted quantity; ensure the quantity is the same or less than on my order never more”, please enter this in the ‘Special Instructions’ section at the Checkout.

FoodWorks uploads the pricing exactly as is from the store computer system; there are no additional charges on individual products, unlike many other online stores that add an additional mark-up to their products. The only additional charges are picking and delivery fees which are clearly outlined so you know exactly what additional costs you are being charged.

Please be aware that pricing can change from day to day so pricing in-store from a day ago could of increased or decreased within the store, however this price is changed online at the same time to maintain consistency.

You will always be charged the price quoted online at the time of checkout.

8. Will the online price at checkout be the same when I make final payment?

In many cases, the final price on your tax invoice will differ slightly from the price quoted online at checkout. Reasons for the variation include:

  • Variations in weighted products (for example fresh produce, meat and deli lines) from what you have ordered; although you can order a specific weight for a weighted item online, when your order is being picked we will attempt to get as close to this weight as possible but we cannot guarantee this exact weight.
  • Product substitutions. If a product is unavailable and you are happy to accept substitutions, the final price may vary from the online quoted price.
  • If a price changes from the time you place your order and when the order is picked and finalised in-store, there may be a variation in the price. Please note you will always be charged the cheaper of the two prices.

9. Do I get a receipt or tax invoice?

You will receive a full tax invoice with your order when it’s delivered or when you collect it in-store.
