Cheetah is an online platform connecting buyers and merchants. All transaction made on the Cheetah platform are between the buyer and the merchant. Cheetah sales are online sales and are processed as online transactions. You will receive an electronic receipt for your order. Cheetah does not take title for any items sold on the platform. Rather, title for each item you purchase will pass directly from the merchant to you, either in the merchant’s store at the point of sale if Cheetah arranges for delivery of the items, or at the delivery address if the merchant arranges for delivery of the items from the merchant’s warehouse or distribution center. Sales tax will be calculated at the time title passes to you. Cheetah may display estimated taxes on your purchase to you online during the Cheetah purchase process; however, your final receipt will display the final sales tax calculated. Each merchant is solely responsible for calculating and informing Cheetah how much sales tax to collect on each order. Cheetah will collect the instructed amount from you on behalf of the merchant and will remit those funds to the merchant.
In-store or in-warehouse prices and other applicable fees (such as taxes and other fees that the merchant charges, like bottle deposits and e-waste fees) may vary based on actual in-store or in-warehouse item prices and availability.
For example, items sold by weight may end up costing a little more or less than the price listed on Cheetah, depending on the exact weight and price of what’s chosen for you. Also, if something is out of stock, the substitutes you get may have prices different from your original items. Because these prices (and the associated taxes and other fees the merchant charges) may vary based on current in-store or in-warehouse item prices and availability, we may authorize your card for an estimated amount that includes a reasonable buffer to cover that variance. You’ll pay the in-store or in-warehouse price (and the associated taxes and other fees the merchant charges) for the items in your order, and the total will show on your final receipt. If the total exceeds the designated reasonable buffer for your order, then part or all of your order will be automatically declined and you may choose to resubmit the declined part of your order at the new price.
Items are purchased from individual stores as listed in your cart and your order history. The shipping & service fee is not a tip. All service fees are paid to Cheetah.
By using Cheetah you agree to allow Cheetah to charge the credit card on file and/or debit funds directly from the bank account you have set up on our App. If your primary method of payment is credit card and the credit card fails, the second credit card will be charged immediately. If your primary method of payment is ACH bank transfer and the ACH bank transfer fails, then your credit card will be charged immediately – this includes the credit card processing fee of 3%. Neither Cheetah nor its vendors on the platform offer credit and therefore payment is due upon delivery of the order.
If you wish to return an item from an order you must notify the driver at the time of delivery of that order. All returns of merchandise are subject to the return policy of the Vendors on the platform from which you ordered. All product must be in the original packaging and must be in a re-sellable format. If product is removed from the original packaging or the original packaging is damaged we cannot return the product nor issue a refund. All perishable items must be returned within 24 hours of the original delivery date or we cannot return the product nor issue a refund. All non perishable product must be returned within 7 days of the original delivery date.
If the customer cancels an order the day of delivery, they will be charged a $100.00 cancellation fee. If the customer cancels an order the day of pick-up, they will be charged a $15.00 cancellation fee.
If you order from Restaurant Depot on the platform and do not pay your invoice (this includes when your credit card fails or ACH fails due to insufficient funds) the amount of your invoice will be transferred to your Restaurant Depot account and you will need to pay the amount of the invoice to Restaurant Depot before you can make additional purchases at Restaurant Depot.
Credits issued by Cheetah will be valid to apply for future orders up to 60 days from the date the credit was issued. Following the expiration date, the credit will fully expire and the customer will not be eligible to apply the expired credit to any future order.
Order Release Consent
Customer acknowledges and agrees that by approving Cheetah to release their order when no one is present, Cheetah will make one delivery attempt and will not obtain a signature upon delivery. The Cheetah delivery record will be conclusive proof of delivery. Customer acknowledges and agrees to release Cheetah from all liability for any loss or damage that may result from delivering the order when no one is present according to the Customer’s approval.
The customer will be charged a $50.00 re-delivery fee if they are not present at the delivery location during their selected delivery window and do not have a signed release consent form leading to a delay of more than 10 minutes or redelivery later that day.
Just In Time Products: Order Refusal, Cancelation, Redelivery and Auto-Ship Policy
The customer may refuse an item without being charged or credited/refunded for it if Cheetah confirms shipping the wrong item and/or if the item was damaged prior to delivery. If the customer orders the wrong item, changes their mind and refuses the item they will be fully charged for it.
A customer must select a delivery date prior to expired shelf-life of the JIT item they selected. If they fail to do so, Cheetah will auto-ship the item.
When does Cheetah auto-ship the JIT items to the customer?
- Perishable (≤14 days of shelf life): Shipped to the customer within 2 calendar days of arrival to the Fulfillment Center
- Non-short shelf life (>14 days): Shipped to the customer within 5 days of arrival to the FC
The customer will incur regular delivery fees associated with the auto-shipped order based on their membership status and $ value of items purchased within that order. If the customer is not present at delivery location and does not have a signed release consent form, resulting in delay of more than 10 minutes or second attempt later that day, the customer will be charged a $50 redelivery fee. If the order is fully canceled, the customer will be charged a $100 cancelation fee on top of the JIT item price.

Referral Program Rules
The Cheetah Referral Program (“Referral Program”) is offered by Cheetah and provides users who are interested in referring their family, friends, and restaurant businesses (“Referrers”) the opportunity to refer eligible individuals to join the Cheetah community. These Program Rules apply to both Referrers and Referred friends or businesses (“Referred” friends or businesses).
You are eligible to earn a referral incentive (“Referral Credits”) for each Referred friend or business that you refer to the Cheetah Platform (subject to certain maximum limits and the other terms in these Program Rules). Referral Credits can only be earned for Referrals in Cheetah’s serviceable areas.
Referrers can earn Referral Credits if: (i) a Referred friend clicks on their referral link or copies the alphanumerical Referral code to apply the offer to their respective account and (ii) the Referred friend completes a Qualifying Purchase based on the offer criteria. The Referrer will be credited with the Credit amount(s) specified for each type of offer in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials after the completion of the Referred friend’s Qualifying Purchase. A Qualifying Purchase must have the minimum total value indicated in the referral invitation.
Referred friends will also receive credit in the form of account credits in the amount(s) indicated in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials that can be used on their first Qualifying Purchase.
A Referral Code may not be distributed or published either directly or indirectly in any form or stored in data retrieval systems or third party websites without our prior written approval. Additionally, Referrals are only for first-time customers of Cheetah, unless the offer states otherwise.
