When will you dispatch my order?
Please note, we are experiencing a large volume of orders due to our BBC2 appearance. You will see from our episode that our chocolate making process takes time, effort and love, which is something we will never compromise. Therefore please expect delays in receiving your order.
We promise to prepare and process your order within 10 business days – you will receive an email notification once your order has been shipped. Alternatively you can log into your account to check the status of your order.
We work around the clock to ensure your order is prepared and ready for dispatch at our earliest convenience. However we are a small business and we make to order all of our chocolates. Bean to bar chocolate requires time to conch and we ask for you to respect our artisan process which delivers high quality chocolate.
How much does shipping cost and how long does it take?
We offer free shipping on all orders of £ 35.00 or above. For all orders under that amount we give you two options:
Shipping Delivery Time Cost
First Class Royal Mail 1-2 Days £3.40
Second Class Royal Mail 2-3 Days £2.90
*Orders must be placed before noon to be dispatched next day. If you require your order sooner, please email us urgently at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number (can be found on order confirmation email).
Please note that during sales, events and holiday seasons delivery times may be longer than those stated in the table.
- Our office and warehouses process orders between Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
- Orders are shipped via Royal Mail or local Postal Services. In some areas the courier may pass deliveries onto a third party
- A signature may be required upon receipt of the goods, if there is no-one available to accept the parcel a calling card will be left for you to re-arrange delivery
- Should an error occur with any part of your order we will of course resolve this issue. We will ask you to return the incorrect item – on receipt we will reimburse you for the cost of the postage and issue the correct item. Please note that if the order is required urgently we will recommend placing a new order for the item in question with next day delivery and returning the incorrect item. Upon receipt of the incorrect item we will process a full refund including postage costs and return delivery costs to you.
