Click & Collect is a shopping method whereby a customer can shop online at Chemist Warehouse and collect their order from a local participating store.

Once you have placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email & text message that includes details of your order, and links to key information.


You will receive an email and a text notification when your order is ready for collection.

Occasionally, an item in-store may be damaged or missing and staff only find out when picking the order. If there is no stock available after placing an order, you will receive a notification via email and text notifying you of the “short picked” item.

You will have different options to select from to proceed with the order:

  • Partial Cancellation
    (Cancel unavailable items and proceed with remainder of order, payment due will be adjusted accordingly)
  • Wait for Stock
    (Order fulfilment continues when stock is back in-store)
  • Cancel Order (Payment due will be cancelled)

NOTE: you will not have the option to partially cancel your order if a discount code has been applied or you have purchased items that are part of a Multi-Buy

To respond, you will be able to select an option from the email or text message. This will redirect you to the Chemist Warehouse webpage once confirmed.

You must respond to this so staff can continue with your order accordingly. The order will not be ready for collection if you do not respond.

When you place an order via Click & Collect, the total cost of the order is taken out and is in a pending state in your account.

If your order is then short-picked, the initial amount is released back into your account (within 3-5 business days) and the new total is then taken out and is in a pending state in your account.

Once the order is collected, this payment is then no longer pending and is taken by Chemist Warehouse Online.

If your order is partially fulfilled, and you are only given the option to ‘Wait for Stock’ or to ‘Cancel’ your order in full - it could be due to the following reasons:

  • 1. You only ordered one product
  • 2. You have purchased products that are a part of a Multibuy Special (e.g. 2 for $4.00)
  • 3. You have used a discount code upon checkout

You cannot partially cancel your order due to the operating system not being able to process the discount as it is taken off the entire order not the products individually.

You can choose to wait for stock or cancel the entire order.

Wait for stock: if selected, when the missing product becomes available and is added to their order – you will be notified by email when the whole order is ready for collection.

Cancel the entire order: if selected, the transaction for your order in your account will be reversed. You can place a new order without the unavailable product/s.


Yes. Refunds must be processed at the same store where the Click & Collect Order was collected.

All refunds will be processed according to our Refund Policy located here:

You can cancel your order at any time through your Chemist Warehouse account.

Alternatively, you can contact the store to request for them to cancel the order.

When your order is cancelled, you won’t get a ‘refund’ in the form of a credit back into your account.

What will happen is that the ‘Chemist Warehouse Online’ transaction will disappear from your account after 3-5 business days as if it never occurred. You will not see a positive or negative charge in your account.

You should contact your bank if after 3-5 business days the pending transaction remains in your account.
