Payment and Delivery

All our payments are processed online through the Netcash payment gateway for ultimate privacy and security. The Glass Castle also has distribution centers with pick-up points where you can pay with SnapScan or Zapper, or with your debit/credit card via our Yoco card machines.

If you experience any issues with payment gateways, please WhatsApp (+27) 66 275 6912 or email eat@homemademeals.co.za.

Once payment is received, your order will be prepared and delivered to your door. We are a newly launched company that will strive to do next-day deliveries, but they may take up to seven days. You will be contacted in the event that your order is being held back by an out-of-stock item.

Unfortunately, we don’t offer a cash-on-delivery service as we don’t carry any stock and cannot hold on to produce.
