Payments, Delivery & Conditions

Payments:
Orders are processed via Stripe and PayPal (except for international orders outside the UK), accepting a range of debit and credit cards. Our preferred method of payment is Stripe because their fees are so much lower than PayPal’s!

Delivery:
Orders are usually dispatched within 24 hrs. but may take up to 3-4 days, despatch times depend on stock levels and production schedules. Our confections are handmade, and often to order, so at busy times orders can take longer.

If you opt for 24hr. shipping, we try to get those orders out same day, if you place your order before 3pm, but it might be the following day depending on stock and production schedules. If any items you’ve ordered are low on stock or have become out of stock, it may take a few days for us to make more.

Orders are processed Monday to Friday. Always let us know if an order is urgent.

Local Pick-Up:
If you’re local to our Factory Shop in Newhaven, East Sussex, you can choose to place your order online and come and collect it from us, and say ‘Hi!’, or just pop in and buy direct!
Our address is: Unit S, Rich I.E., Avis Way, Newhaven, BN9 0DU, and we’re usually open 10am-5:30pm.

Postage Options:
Royal Mail’s 48 hour Tracked service
* (48 hours from time of despatch).
Royal Mail’s 24 hour Tracked service* (24hr orders will be prioritised if placed before 3pm, mon-fri).
*
Royal Mail does not guarantee these services, to quote: ‘We aim to deliver 94% of parcels within this time‘.

Shipping Costs:
Please note, as of Tuesday, 2nd April 2024, we’ve had to change our prices in accordance with Royal Mail’s prices:
48 hour Tracked: £3.25
 (incl. vat).
24 hour Tracked: £4.66 (incl. vat).

We will email you when your order is being sent out.

International Orders:
International orders are not charged VAT at our end, but you may be charged VAT (sales tax) when the goods reach your destination country, VAT will also apply to the shipping cost as part of the ‘goods and services received’ (any way they can squeeze money out of us all, they will!). Customs Duty charges may also apply (if outside the EU).

International shipping is via Royal Mail’s International Tracked and International Signed, depending on your location, and the price of shipping also depends on your location, but you will see the shipping price automatically calculated on the shopping cart page.

The weight limit for international orders is 2kg, but to put that into perspective, an average order is around 800g. If your order does go over the 2kg limit, we will contact you and plan an alternative option with you.

We’re not using PayPal for orders outside the UK because their fees are so high, so please use Stripe for international payments.

Currencies:
On each individual product page there is a small drop down menu to change the currency shown on our website, with realtime currency conversion, to make our site a little more user-friendly, but we only have three options available to us, which are GBP (£), Euro (€) and USD ($). We hope it helps!

Returns Policy:
Unfortunately food items can not be returned.  However, in the unlikely event that there is a problem with your purchase please contact us and we will endeavour to help to resolve the issue.

Order Cancellations:
It is not possible to cancel an order once it has been paid for.

If your items don’t arrive:
If you items have not arrived please contact your local post depot and check whether they have your package.  In the unfortunate event that Royal Mail mislay/fail to deliver your items, please wait 15 days, before we can refund you or send you a replacement.

Privacy Policy:
In keeping with the new GDPR regulations, we will not use your contact information (or pass it on to anyone else!).  By placing an order with us you are agreeing for us to use your contact information (email and postal address) so that we can send you emails specific to your order, and use your postal address to send your order to you (how else would you get them?!).  If you check the newsletter box on the shopping cart, you are ‘opting-in’, agreeing for us to send you the very occasional newsletter email, so that we can keep you up to date with all the big changes we’ve got coming up as we grow our little vegan confectionery empire – there are exciting times ahead!
