Terms of Delivery
1. At Wing Fung Hong, we offer to deliver our products and have tailored these terms of delivery accounting for the bulkiness and weight of our rice products. You may also choose our Self-Pickup Service if it suits you.
2. We offer customers who buy below fifteen kilogram a group sharing delivery mechanism (“Group Delivery”). Whether you are, for example, buying a five kilogram or ten kilogram bag of rice, if there are other customers living in your building, or in sufficiently near distance (“Neighbor Customers”) also ordering below fifteen kilogram, you will effectively pay less for your delivery. The saving in delivery fee will be credited to you in digital coupon the day after the delivery to your building is completed. Your effective delivery fee is illustrated in the Group Delivery Fee Schedule. We have full discretion to determine who your Neighbor Customers are. Please check with us before you place your order via phone, email, or chat in the App.
