All orders are dispatched, unless otherwise stated, within one working day of receiving payment confirmation.

Standard delivery takes 2 to 4 working days depending on the order’s destination and express delivery takes 1 to 2 working days.

If your order is placed after 13h00 and you request express delivery, the order will only be sent out the following working day and will be delivered 1 working day from when it was sent out.

Courier deliveries are made Monday to Friday between 9h00 and 18h00. There are no deliveries on weekends or public holidays.

Please note that the lead times shown below are the best-case scenarios. We do our best to dispatch orders made before 13h00 the same day and we rely on the couriers not experiencing delays themselves, but we cannot guarantee the lead times, they are just estimates. Please add one working day to be safe.

Delivery fees vary depending on the delivery destination.

Delivery fees are based on your geographical location using your postal code and which method of shipping (standard or express) you choose. Delivery fees range between R75-R275 and can be calculated at the checkout point. 

Our system will offer you the appropriate charge based on your delivery address during the checkout process.

Currently, we only deliver within South Africa.

If your order was placed before 13h00, your tracking number will be sent via email by close of business. If your order was placed after 13h00, your tracking number will be sent via email the following working day. You track your order on our website’s tracking page.

Please keep in mind that it takes 24 hours for the tracking number to reflect on the courier’s system.

Courier deliveries are made Monday to Friday 9h00 to 18h00, so you should always provide a delivery address where there will be an appropriate person to sign for the delivery during these times.

If no one is unavailable at the time of delivery, a note will be left on the door or you will receive an SMS saying that delivery was attempted, and the courier will contact the recipient via telephone so that a new delivery day can be scheduled.

Three attempts will be made to deliver the parcel if, on the third attempt, no one is still unavailable the parcel will be returned to iamtrend. iamtrend will then contact you to resolve the issue, at this stage you may be liable for any additional delivery costs that may have been incurred.

Yes, they can. However, it does also depend on your optometrist. We have tested all our clear lens opticals and all are suitable for prescription lenses to be fitted in them by a certified optometrist. Fitting your prescription lenses into iamtrend frames are done so at your own risk. We recommend phoning your optometrist beforehand to see if they have experience in fitting frames similar to ours.

Some of our clear lens frames do have screws and some do not. Regardless, we have been able to fit lenses into the frames with or without screws. The screws aren’t necessary to fit prescription lenses. However, some optometrists are not able to fit the lenses without the screws. It’s best to phone your optometrist to see if they have experience in fitting frames without screws.

We stock both UV400-protected and polarized-protected sunglasses. To find out the lens material simply click on the product details on the product page.

Cash Deposit – can be made at your selected bank using our banking details. Once you have made payment email your proof of payment to [email protected]

When paying via Payfast it will prompt you for a security code, this is a code you get from your bank which you use when you make an online payment. A credit card isn’t always necessary as most banks give the option to activate online transactions on your debit card. This feature is something that has to be set up in the bank or on your online banking.
