Q. Are all your products fresh and genuine?
A. Definitely, 100%. We never sell anything other than genuine brand items on our website.
Our products are sourced from around the world, so a small number of the products sold on our website may look slightly different from what you have at home, but the products are still 100% genuine and produced by the original manufacturer for that particular brand. For example, a product sold in the US may differ in appearance from the same product sold in France or Japan, but the product is still genuine.
Freshness is also 100% guaranteed as we keep all our stock in a temperature controlled environment prior to shipping and subject to regular quality control checks.
We are highly rated by the following popular websites:
All of which can testify to the quality of the products received by our customers.
Q: I checked the batch code on the box, it shows the product was manufactured 10 years ago, why are you selling expired items?
A: Most products do not have expiration dates and are only assigned batch codes as they are given a maximum of 36 months shelf life by the manufacturers.
As for most fragrance items, there is no shelf life. Traditionally, all cosmetics manufacturers when questioned, provide very long life to all their products, partly due to their widespread distribution throughout the world with a very large range of products.
Online batch code calculators are not trustable sources to verify batch codes as these websites are not operated by the manufacturers. For example, some batch code calculators would indicate an item being manufactured in 2001, but, in fact, the item was only newly launched in 2021.
As such, to verify manufacturing and/or expiry dates, we suggest that you contact the manufacturer directly.
Q. Do you provide samples?
We gladly provide free samples but they are subject to availability, so we can't guarantee they will be included with all orders.
Q. Would you be able to find something not listed on your website?
A. Quite possibly. We have an extensive global supplier network which ensures our product range is the largest anywhere on the internet so we just might be able to find what you're looking for, even if it's been discontinued in your country. If you have ordered an item before but don't see it listed anymore, it is most likely just sold out. We are normally able to replenish stock within a week so keep checking regularly. Unfortunately we are unable to notify individual customers when stock arrives or when the next shipment is coming in, so please keep checking the website for the latest stock update.
Q. I have x type skin, with y characteristics and z problems. What type of product would suit me best?
A. Our specialty is sourcing all major brands from around the world, offering a great loyalty programme and significant special offers. To be able to do this we operate on a very tight cost budget and do not employ the skin or color specialists, nor the technology to answer this type of question comprehensively. Rather than try and just give you an answer, we would rather be honest and suggest you obtain these answers elsewhere, from the brands or specialist sites, and then use us to repeat purchase at the best price.
Privacy & Security
Q. Are my details secure?
A. Yes! All the information we ask for when you place your order is essential for us to process your order and keep you up to date on the latest offers available from StrawberryNET.Com. We use the latest SSL encryption (128 bit) technology to ensure all your details are kept secure. We do not sell, rent or otherwise pass on any of your details to other parties. Ever.

You can also check your order status and postal reference number here.
An e-mail will also be sent to you when your order has been shipped which will have the date and reference number for your package. Orders are shipped within 24 hours after the order has been placed.
Q. How can I track my order?

You can also use your own country's postal service's website if they have an EMS tracking option available online.
For registered airmail, only limited tracking is available and only after a certain period of time from the date of dispatch, normally 10 working days.
Please note no tracking is available for non-registered airmail.
Q. Do you ship to my country?
A. Yes. We ship to anywhere on the planet that receives regular postal services.
(Please note that we're currently unable to ship to addresses in France, Monaco and Turkey.)
Q. Do you ship to PO Boxes/APO/FPO Addresses?
A. Yes, we ship to valid PO Box and military addresses. However, we only ship by non registered post to such addresses as this is the only method that does not require a signature on receipt. Please note if you choose this option, which we don't recommend, you are accepting liability for non delivery for whatever reason. Non registered post cannot be tracked.
Q. Will there be any taxes/customs duties?
A. It depends on the destination.
We currently ship to over 190 countries excluding France, Monaco, and Turkey.
Effective from 20 April 2020, we will no longer cover VAT claims. In the event that your order is charged taxes or other additional charges, you are responsible for all expense occurred, which is not refundable.
Point Rewards Program
Join the program and discover a more rewarding way to shop. You can earn points on every purchase you make. These points can be used at checkout towards future purchases. Use your points once your shopping bag reaches R3,366.29, with no limit to how many points you can spend!
Q: How to enroll?
Once you have registered an account with a password, you will be automatically enrolled in our Point Rewards Program.
Q: How can I start earning points?
A: Earning points is simple! Each purchase you make will earn points, and the more you buy the more you earn!
Regular Orders Rewards = 2%
2% of your total order value will be converted into points. Your total order value includes all shipping fees, surcharges and taxes. If your order value total was ZAR100, you will receive 2 points. Your points will be credited to your account 7 days after you successfully complete your purchase.
Q: How do I use my points?
A: Simply checkout as normal and apply the points before you pay. You can also see your point balance in your account. Points are applied to your order after cash coupons and discounts are applied, but before shipping and surcharges are calculated.
If you are shopping in a region where the smallest unit of currency is 1 (such as Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Chile, Iceland, Taiwan, or Iran), the smallest number of points you can apply to your order is 1. In other regions, the minimum amount is 0.1 point.
Q: Is there any minimum purchase to use points?
A: Yes, you must have a minimum of R3,366.29 in your shopping bag to use points.
Q: What if after using my points, my cart doesn't meet the minimum value for Free Shipping?
If your cart total falls under R3,366.29 after your points have been applied, you are required to pay shipping costs as well as any fragrance or hair care surcharges incurred.
For example, if your cart value is R3,375.29 and you apply 10 points, your cart value will become R3,365.29, which is below the minimum spend for free shipping. Shipping costs will be added to your final order value.
Q: Can I use my Loyalty Discount and earn points at the same time?
A: Loyalty Customers must opt-in to upgrade to the Point Rewards Program in order to start earning points. You can do this on your account page. If you do not have an account, you must first register one with a password before you can opt-in. Once you have upgraded, the Point Rewards Program will replace your existing Loyalty Discount, and you will not be able to opt back into the Loyalty Discount Program.
Q: Can I earn points through Guest Checkout?
A: Orders made through Guest Checkout will not earn points at this time. Please register a Strawberrynet account with a password, and you will be able to earn points with every order.
Q: Do my points expire?
A: Yes. Your points are valid for 90 days after you have earned them. You can check your point balance in your account page where you will see the expiry dates. Once your points expire, you will no longer be able to use them.
Q: What if I made several orders using different currencies?
A: All Strawberrynet accounts are automatically tied to the local currency of its country's website. Your earned points will be based in the currency of the country where you made your purchase. For example, if you purchased from our Australia site using AU$, your points will be earned at the AU$ equivalent price and can only be used on our Australia site. You will not be able to spend the points you earned from our Australia site on any other country's websites.
Q: What if I cancel my order or make a return?
A: If you have made a return, the points earned from that purchase will be deducted from your account.
Additionally, any points deducted on a cancelled purchase will be returned to your Points Balance.
Q: What if my order is partially refunded?
A: If your order is partially refunded due to an item being unavailable or you have requested to have it removed, the points earned from any unshipped item will be deducted from your account.
Additionally, any points deducted on a cancelled purchase will be returned to your Points Balance.
Q: When will I see my points in my account after a purchase?
A: Your earned points will be effective 7 days after your order has been successfully completed. Once you have made a purchase, your points will show up as Pending in your account. After 7 days, the points will be ready for use.
Q: I see my points are under the Pending status. What does that mean?
A: After you have placed your order, the points you have earned will show up as Pending in your account. It may take up to 24 hours after you successfully place your order for the points to appear under Pending. After 7 days, these points will become Earned Points, and will be ready for you to use. Points that you have spent will show up as Used.
Q: My balance has negative points. What does that mean?
A: If your order has been refunded, earned points from that order will be deducted from your account. The deduction will occur regardless of how many points you have. Therefore, there is a chance that your point balance may become negative. Negative points have no expiry date, and you can only use points when your account balance is positive.
Q: Can I transfer points to my friend as a gift?
A: Points are not transferrable between accounts.
Q. Which credit or bank cards can I pay with?
A. We accept all major international credit cards, including virtual cards:
Q. I don't have a credit card. How else can I pay?
A. Money order and bank draft payment is available by special arrangement. Please contact us here for details.
We endeavour to make checkout as smooth as possible by displaying prices in local currencies. However, not all local currencies are supported by payment gateways. Depending on which payment method you choose, there may be cases in which your order cannot be charged in the local currency that is displayed. If this happens, your order will be charged in a different currency. Rest assured, we will always show you the currency that you are being charged in on the checkout page before you make any payments.
Please note that due to currency fluctuations, the final total shown on the order confirmation may differ slightly from the actual charge in your own currency.
Q. How can I pay through PayPal?
A. There are two ways to pay through PayPal. The express way is to select the 'Checkout with PayPal' option in the shopping cart. Remember to enter your email address first. You will be taken to the PayPal site to continue the payment process.
The other way is upon reaching the payment section of the checkout process, select the 'PayPal' payment option and input your registered PayPal e-mail address in the space provided. Once your order has been confirmed and you have received your order number and final total, you will be taken to the PayPal site to complete payment.
We will also send you a follow up email with a link to complete your payment.
Q. What happens if I'm not happy with the product I receive?
If you're not 100% satisfied in any way with an item you've received, please let us know by emailing us within 30 calendar days of receipt. Returns can only be made once authorized by Customer Services. We guarantee money back refund without question if you are dissatisfied in any way. Items must be returned in the original condition in which they were received.
Our site is aimed at customers who have already purchased and experienced the product, either its use in the case of skincare, or smell in terms of perfume, or color in terms of make up. If you have ordered the wrong product, then you can still return for a full refund but please note that the items must be unopened and unused.
If there is any defect in the product on receipt then it may be returned to us for a refund at that time.
Please contact our orders department at orders@StrawberryNET.com before returning anything so we can inform you where to send and how to arrange the refund.
Returned items will be refunded using the same method used to make payment for the order. Return postage will be reimbursed in case of damaged, defective or incorrectly sent items and will be credited using the same method used to pay for the order, or through store credit in special circumstances.
For DHL Express and Aramex Express orders, we will not refund the postage costs to return any items due to delivery failure where there is inaccurate handling such as incorrect entry of address and inability to contact the recipient on the delivery date. Your refund will be completed via the original payment method, excluding the delivery costs.
Important note on returning fragrances and home scents:
