FAQs on Rustans.com

Covid19 has impacted our operations and teams while we strive to serve you. We hope you enjoy browsing and shopping for our growing brands and products online or in-store. Follow us on social media @rustansph channels for latest updates.

Thank you for your support, courtesy and understanding.

 

1. Is rustans.com open during Covid19?

Yes. Rustans.com is open to take orders at this time, however please expect delays on all order processing and deliveries. This is due to the extra safety precautions we are required to undertake when processing your order, the manpower restrictions in our stores and warehouses, and transport conditions which may change in certain areas due to local lockdowns that may be ongoing. In addition, our brand partners may experience supply delays to us.

We offer essential items, clothing, accessories, cosmetics, kids’ items, and homewares. 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 extended sea or road transit.

2. Does rustans.com deliver nationally across the Philippines or internationally?

Most of the time we deliver nationally across the Philippines. As at September 30, 2020 - unfortunately Covid19 has impacted some of our provincial areas. Please keep an eye on our Press Center for updates on areas where we cannot deliver or accept orders at present.

As at September 30, 2020, the following areas are currently unservicable for orders and deliveries.

  • Bataan
  • Bulacan
  • Zambales
  • Pampanga
  • Tarlac
  • Iloilo
  • Coron, Palawan
  • Baler, Aurora

Updates will be made as soon as they are available. If you have ordered prior to this date for an address in one of these areas, we will be attempting to deliver - please allow extra time.

Unfortunately, we currently do not offer International delivery.

3. I contacted rustans.com Customer Service but did not receive a reply.

We are experiencing a high volume of messages and requests. Please allow 24-72 hours for a detailed reply on your order. This is a guideline only and we appreciate your courtesy and patience toward our team members.

4. Where is my order? How do I track it?

When your order dispatches from our warehouse or stores team, a tracking number will be issued to the email address you used to place your order so you can monitor the order in transit.

We are unable to provide precise times for deliveries as this is subject to road, air and sea conditions in your area. You may refer to our general guide on transit times and shipping options.

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

5. The courier system says they tried to deliver but I was home. Why did this happen and what to do?

Tracking systems will show standard messages regarding manifest of your package, transit, hub stops or other information when the package is scanned.

From time to time, a driver may reach your area and may not be able to deliver as planned. This can occur due to traffic, weather events, the vehicle, time of day limitations, restrictions entering some subdivisions or streets, or other unforeseen situations. In addition, door knocks may not be heard, or street names and numbers may be difficult to locate.

Don't panic, the driver will make two attempts to deliver and you should receive your order soon. Allow 1-2 days for them to try again. If you're concerned, please contact the courier and quote your tracking number for assistance.
