The following are some questions regarding delivery related matters. You may also check out our extensive FAQ here.
Do You Deliver?
Yes, we deliver to your doorstep at your selected date and time slot (Only for Singapore mainland and Sentosa). This is free for orders $100 and above. For orders below $100, there is a flat fee of $10 for this service. We don't deliver internationally at the moment and we hope to serve your country some day. ^_^
Is Delivery Free?
Delivery is free for orders $100 and above. For orders below $100, there is a flat fee of $10.70 for door-to-door delivery (in Singapore mainland and Sentosa) at your preferred date and time slot.
Alternatively, you may choose to self-collect from our warehouse after placing an order. This option is free.
What Days Do You Deliver And What Are Your Time Slots?
We deliver from Mondays to Saturdays and you can choose from three delivery time slots during the checkout process.
These are the time slots:
Mondays to Fridays
Slot 1 (10am - 2pm)
Slot 2 (2pm-5pm)
Slot 3 (5pm - 8pm)
Slot 1 (10am - 2pm)
Slot 2 (2pm-5pm)
Can I Request For A Specific Time For My Delivery?
Unfortunately, our deliveries cannot be made at a specified time.
Deliveries will be made according to your preferred time slot as deliveries are also made to other customers and are made according to our delivery fleet's delivery route.
We will put a note for your timing request, however, it would still be best if you could arrange for someone to receive the item within the time slot you have selected.
We seek your understanding on this as it is our duty to deliver all items to our customers on time within the stipulated time frame.
Alternatively, you may wish to authorise us to leave
If timing is a concern, you may choose to self-collect from our warehouse during our operating hours.
Can I Change My Delivery Address / Date / Time Slot?
No worries, you can still amend the delivery address/date/time slot as long as it is at least 12 hours BEFORE your selected delivery date and time slot.
Please email our friendly customer service with your invoice number at email@example.com at least 12 hours in advance before your delivery time slot.
We will do our best to fulfil your request, but if the order has already begun the delivery process, we cannot change the delivery address/date/ time slot.
What Happens If I'm Not At Home?
This is only if you have not opted for contactless delivery. If you have explicitly written to leave the order at the door / gate / wherever without any contact with our delivery driver, this would NOT apply.
If you have opted for contactless delivery, we will send you a picture of the baggage once it is done. But please only do this at your own discretion. We are not liable for missing items or any changes in quality during the time your items are left out.
You may also wish to opt for your order to be packed in a foam box by simply requesting for it under Order Note.
Please ensure that someone is present to acknowledge the delivery. If no one is at home and there is a missed delivery, we will contact you as soon as we can to reschedule another delivery time.
Our delivery drivers will give you a call should there be no response at the door, and will only wait for a maximum of 5 minutes before they leave for the next location.
Please note that we reserve the right to charge you a re-delivery fee of $10.70.
Please also note that we aren't liable for any change in quality under such circumstances.
If you wish to cancel your order without a redelivery, we will refund the total amount in credits MINUS a $20 service fee. If your order contains an air-flown item, we will deduct that from the credits.
Total Refunded Credits = Total - $20 - (Total amount of Air-flown Only Items)
For international orders, you should receive a delivery slip to arrange for a re-delivery.
*Any unused or expired credits will not be refundable in cash or extended.
Please note that by proceeding to make an order with Zairyo, you agree to all terms and conditions stated here unconditionally.

If the item is available but not delivered to you, please call or text our hotline at 8808 0811 on the day of the delivery. Please provide your Order Number during the call.
Refunds will only be made if the item is not available. Missing items are strictly eligible for store credit refunds only on a case-by-case review.
If a product is not available from our Japanese partners or at the Japanese markets after the items are confirmed, we reserve the right to issue you a refund due to unavailability. However, we will do our best to fulfil the orders.
Certain products may be kept by AVA at the airport for random hygiene checks. Thus if it is stuck at the airport, we reserve the right to issue you a refund due to unavailability. However, this is a rare occurrence as we have obtained appropriate licenses to operate our business.
I Have a Delivery Today But Have Not Received It, What Should I Do?
