DELIVERIES AND SHIPPING

Can I have an order delivered to friends or family?

Yes, you can. Please ensure you enter the friend or family member’s address in the ‘delivery address’ field before you check out. The ‘billing address’ field would then be your address.

How will my order be shipped?

We send all orders via The Courier Guy. It is possible to track your parcel online, using the waybill number (you can find this on your delivery notification email). If you do not have your waybill number or have an issue with your shipment, please email us at babyrepublic.orders@gmail.com. We are happy to help!

How will I know when my order has been shipped?

You will receive an email from us confirming that you order has been collected – the email will include your waybill number – this is the one you can use to track your parcel’s delivery status.

How long does it take for my order to be shipped?

If your order is in stock, it will be processed within one to two days (1–2). It is important to remember that we can only start processing your order once the money is reflected in our account. It is our mission to provide the fastest possible service, but if you require a rush order, you can email us at babyrepublic.orders@gmail.co.za and we can discuss the options available  to get your rush order to you as quickly as possible.

How long does it take for my parcel to arrive?
