Important information about deliveries during COVID-19

Due to ECQ/MECQ/GCQ conditions across the Philippines, we must take extra care with your order and it will take longer.

Limitations on manpower and transport for safety reasons, means our normal processing times are delayed. These conditions affect the time needed to pack your order, to transport your order, or to pass check points.

Processing, packing and dispatch of orders takes place Monday to Friday, and may take more than 1+ week, followed by delivery time to your location.

You will receive tracking information once your package is on its way. If your order is delayed for more than 10 days, you may contact us and await a detailed reply. 

Our customer service team requires 24-72 hours to address your questions.

Thank you for your patience and courtesy at all times when interacting with our staff during this difficult time.

1. Can I order from rustans.com while Luzon is under Community Quarantine?

Yes. Rustans.com remains open to take orders at this time, however please expect delays on all order processing and deliveries. We offer essential items, clothing, accessories, cosmetics, kids’ items, and homewares.

Disclaimer: Some products are subject to delivery from our brand partners and may be delayed by limited transport and manpower during both ECQ and GCQ. Our partners and our team are working hard to serve your needs as best we can in these circumstances.

Cosmetics or heat-sensitive products must travel via sea to some provincial areas due to restricted ECQ/GCQ air services. Should you wish to include cosmetics and heat-sensitive items in provincial orders, this will be at the customers' own risk. We will do all that we can to carefully pack the items but cannot guarantee climate conditions in transit.

2. I contacted Customer Service yesterday but did not receive a reply.

We are experiencing a high volume of messages. Please allow 24-72 hours for a detailed reply on your order.

3. How can I keep track of my orders?

When your order dispatches, please use the Tracking information given to monitor progress. We are unable to provide exact times for any deliveries as this is subject to road, air and sea factors.

If you have not received a tracking notification for your order, it means we are still processing. Your orders may be dispatched in more than one package, and you will receive separate notifications for each dispatch relating to your order.
