Not much at all. Like everything at Makro, we’ve kept things really simple,
It’s really that simple, but please get in touch if you have any problems or questions by calling us on either 0860 300 999 or 0860 600 999.
Makro attempts to make your online shopping experience as secure as possible. The password entered on registration must be alpha-numeric (that is, a mix of letters and numbers) and must be a minimum of 8 characters in total. Try and create one that’s unique, but easy to remember. Don’t worry though, if you do happen to forget it, it’s not a train smash. We’ll help you to retrieve it or reset it if you do.
There is a "Forgot Your Password" link on the login page. You will be prompted to enter an email address to send a password reset email which will allow you to reset your password. Please make sure that you enter the email address you registered with. If your email address has changed, please contact us on 0860 300 999 so that we can keep our records up to date.
An icon is a pictogram or graphic image that is displayed on your screen which helps you navigate through the website swiftly. They’re basically quick links to help us get you to where you want to be as quickly as possible. Icons can also display symbols indicating features as a short reference.
Thawte Security is a Certificate Authority that essentially secures the Makro website by validating security certificates with our affiliates to ensure that our connection both to and from are secure at all times. As you know, just as in our stores, we take security on our website very seriously.
For sure! We’ve put in a lot of effort to ensure that our website is designed to be used across current mainstream mobile devices, such as tablets (e.g. Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab) or mobile phones (e.g. Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S range, Microsoft Lumnia, or Blackberry Q10). If our website doesn’t look right on the device that you’re using, give us a call and we’ll see what we can do to sort it out.
At Makro, we take security very seriously, in our stores and especially online. Rest assured that we’ve taken every precaution, using the latest security technology to ensure your personal details are safe and secure with us.
All sensitive information you provide is encrypted using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer technology, and we partner with a leading South African payment processor.
We also insist that all credit card payments use 3D Secure processes (such as MasterCard’s SecureCode and Verified by Visa) so you will be prompted for a one-time PIN when purchasing to prevent you from fraudulent transactions.
In short, this means that we’ve done everything we can to ensure that your details are always safe and secure.
Our website can provide an estimation of stock availability for delivery, collection or in-store, based on the previous day’s closing stock. Before you have selected your fulfilment choice, the site looks at your region (determined by your IP address), however only once we have the exact details of the fulfilment location, can we confirm the stock availability. We do our best to source stock even if it is low, but there may be cases where we will need to contact you as this may lead to extended lead times. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our business, we cannot guarantee the stock indicated on the site is in-store. However if you want to confirm the quantity available, it’s best to contact us on 0860 409 999 or your closest store. (Please note that, as a rule, we do not reserve stock).
Where possible, our general merchandise and liquor range is available for purchasing online. Currently, the following exceptions do apply:
Our food range can be browsed, but is unfortunately not available for online purchase at this stage.
