Pricing & Payments
The price of a bottle of vitamins is R550, but it’s R1 050 if you purchase 2 bottles.
Shipping is done through MDS Collivery and shipping prices are determined by their system and not by VitagirlSA, its owners or employees.
Payments are processed through PayFast, South Africa’s most secure payment gateway. EFT payments are accepted and preferred so that we avoid the hefty credit card and PayFast fees. We require proof of payment to be emailed to us before we ship any goods. This is non-negotiable.
No amount will be debited from your account if you do not complete the purchase process and check out your shopping cart.
Once your payment has reflected in our bank account, we package your order and ship it with MDS Collivery, door-to-door delivery.
Public holidays and weekends delay delivery times, and this is out of our control. Orders placed before 3pm Monday-Friday are shipped out the same day for delivery within 4 working days.

If you fail to meet this 24 hour deadline, we won’t know about the error, will ship your order and cannot be held responsible for it. We will also not offer refunds for erroneous orders.
Will you take back half-finished bottles of vitamins?
No. For health and safety reasons, we are unable to receive bottles of vitamins that have been opened or partially consumed.
