Orders and Payments
We may also offer alternative payment options during the checkout process. You may also process an order by telephone or via a payment link, however, no order is processed by us until payment is successfully completed.
We reserve the right to hold deliveries if your payment method is not valid or it has been refused by the card network.
Where we accept an order, we do all that we can to ensure that your order is fulfilled. Products are, however, subject to availability and market conditions. If we are unable to deliver an item you have ordered, we will contact you and may offer a reasonable substitute or a refund. You may reject that substitute, and you will not be charged for it. If we do not offer a substitute or you reject our substitute, we will remove both the original Product and the substitute from your order so that you are not charged for them. We will, however, bear no liability for the unavailability of Products.
All prices for Products are inclusive of any applicable VAT at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK. The prices of our Products do not include delivery fees. Our delivery fees are as quoted on our Website. Delivery fees will be added automatically, where applicable, on the shopping basket page depending on the value of the items in your basket and the delivery service selected.
The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only, although we have made every effort to display the products accurately. Your products may vary slightly from those images. The packaging of the Products may vary slightly from that displayed on our website too.
We will fulfill your order based on the fulfillment service you select on the Shopping Basket page. Unless you are collecting your order from our store, we will deliver your order to the delivery address you confirm inserted on the Checkout pages. It is your responsibility to enter a valid and accurate postcode that coincides with a postcode we deliver to. Any changes to your delivery details must be received by us as soon as possible in order for us to try and meet those change requests. You remain responsible for ensuring that any such change is not only transmitted by you but received by us.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept orders from any customer, to adjust the cost for the delivery, if required, and then not to deliver to all international locations.
You are responsible for making suitable arrangements to receive your delivery and giving us appropriate instructions. In the event that you give us instructions to leave your delivery in a safe place, we will not accept liability for the order once we have delivered it to the safe place. In the event if the delivery is stolen from your doorstep or damaged while our delivery person is there, we do not accept liability and will offer compensation at our discretion.
If we are unable to deliver to you or have to deliver late, for reasons beyond our control including but not limited to adverse weather conditions, strike actions, vehicle breakdown, traffic congestion, Covid-19 or supplier failure, we cannot accept liability for any inconvenience or loss that this causes.
You must inspect the Products at delivery. You must notify us as soon as possible after delivery if you find any defects, by emailing us or writing to us at the email address shown on our Website. We will replace or refund you for defective Products. Otherwise, our liability is limited as provided below.
If nobody is home when we deliver your order using our own vans, and you have not provided us any specific delivery instructions, we will either return the order to our facilities or try to leave the order with a neighbour. If we return the order to our facility, we will contact you to attempt redelivery. We reserve the right to impose a delivery fee on the redelivery that is no more than the maximum delivery fee we can charge to other customers in your postcode, even if your order had any delivery fees waived originally. We also reserve the right to take payment over the phone for the redelivery.
If nobody is home when your order is delivered by one of our courier services, one more free of charge delivery attempt may be made by the courier. You will receive an email notifying you that the parcel has been handed over to our courier along with an expected delivery date and time. You will be able to track, rearrange and provide additional instructions directly with our courier. If your order includes chilled products, it is your responsibility to be at the designated delivery address on the date and time of delivery. We will not be responsible for the condition of chilled products due to unsuccessful deliveries because you are not at the designated delivery address on the day of delivery.
Where we deliver using a courier service, we will endeavour to pack products as carefully as possible to ensure no damage or breakage to both packaging and the interior product.
Cancellation and refunds
We may suspend or cancel any accepted order at our reasonable discretion or if you breach any of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
When you shop online you have the right to return non-perishable Products when the packaging has not been opened as long as you send it before the expiry date. To do that you have to inform us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of receiving your order. Then you have another 14 days to return the items. You do not have to provide a reason for your refund. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays are included in mentioned periods. You will need to arrange a return at your own expense of any such non-perishable goods.
After the products have been received by us, we will credit your payment card with the price (if any) that you have paid for cancelled products less our reasonable costs in collecting the goods.
Where we have assessed reasonable costs for the cancelled products, we will be transparent in the costs and agree on them upfront with you.
