On the google map add a marker (a red marker) to the location that you want the goods to be delivered. This does not mean that you will not be prompted to provide details of the location. The Google map location is be a supplement to the details provided.

As a registered customer, you can track your order in your account. At the top of any page just click on “My Account” then click on “My Orders”, thus you will be able to track the status of your order.

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that there is a receiver at the address they are sending the order to. The receiver can be the buyer him/herself or any person they designate to be a receiver. The receiver should not be minor. When receiving the products the receiver will need to sign off the delivery and provide their 4-digit order number. Thus the buyer/customer will need to provider the order number to the designated receiver, in case where the customer is not the one receiving it.

If for any reason the delivery person does not find a receiver, they will make a call to the customer notifying them of the same and checking if there is an alternative close by. Otherwise, the goods will be returned to Izemall, where the customer can come to collect them or can pay again for the delivery cost.

Note that the delivery personnel cannot be told to wait for you or any receiver to come home, because that may cause congestion of deliveries, hence affecting our service
