Before the items are granted, the customer must provide either their ID number, customer number, or order number in order to receive their purchased items
What happens if you provide another person's order number?

If they can find a digital alternative for step #3, things will progress much smoother.

I have found that to be the weakest link in ordering takeaways at drive-thrus as well, due to the language barrier and/or the staff just not paying attention.

Hmmm, queuing in your car, the height of summer, standard Makro efficiency... what could go wrong

Well its not like drive-thru's are unknown to the population, you order, drive there, identify yourself to receive your items, sign & drive off..

How hard can it be?

Why would there be fights?

It's not like the in-store sales where people just show up en masse.

Only online orders are collected at the drive-thru, so only the customers who shopped online will use it.

And when you have to wait 30 minutes because the twat in front is being useless

Why bother going anywhere near the store if you can buy online and get delivery for R70?!
