OUR SERVICE

We want to give you a fantastic service and for you to be really happy with us. But if you’ve sent or received a Biscuit Boutique pressie and you’re not over the moon about the experience, please pop us an email straight away. Our address is hello@biscuitboutique.co. We’ll do our very best to get back to you within 24 hours, and we’ll do everything we can to put things right for you.

 

ORDERS

Payment

We take payment when you place your order, rather than at the time of dispatch. This is to help avoid any last-minute hitches that might delay your delivery. We’re not able to accept an order until we’ve checked and approved it, and if there is a problem we’ll be in touch within three working days. We run special offers from time to time and these are to be used independently, not in combination.

Dispatch

We make all our biscuit to order, please allow 72 hours for your to be dispatched. If for any reason we’re not able to do this we’ll get in touch with you by email to offer you a different product, a later delivery date, or, if you’d prefer: a refund. And just so you know, we don’t send out any items on the weekend.


Returns Policy

Returns are only accepted for goods which arrived damaged or are sent in error. If you find your order damaged or you have received the wrong product please contact us immediately. Depending on the condition we will offer to re-send the items or exchange them. As our chocolate biscuits are perishable goods we do not offer refunds in any other circumstances.

Corporate Orders Policy

All orders are to be paid in full upon confirmation. Production will not start until payment is received, so late payment may affect delivery dates. If you wish to cancel your order, please note the following points. If an order is cancelled more than 60 days in advance of the agreed dispatch date, a 90% refund will be offered. If an order is cancelled between 60 and 30 days in advance of the agreed dispatch date, a 50% refund will be offered. Unfortunately we are unable to offer any refund if the order is cancelled with less than 30 days’ notice before the agreed date of dispatch.

 

SEASONAL OFFERS

We will often provide seasonal offers via our newsletter and in our brochures. These are valid online at www.biscuitboutique.co unless stated otherwise. These will be valid for a limited time only, please see expiry date in newsletter or brochure. Discount will be provided once stated code is entered at the online checkout. Offers will not include delivery unless stated otherwise. Offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers unless stated otherwise. Offers exclude bespoke orders and corporate orders unless stated otherwise. As our special offers are contingent on availability, we may change the terms of special offers and promotional codes, or withdraw them altogether, at any time, and without prior notice. We also reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to offer different personalised special offers and promotions and it will therefore only be possible for the customer in receipt of the special offer to redeem the discount.


Delivery offers

From time to time we will provide seasonal offers for free delivery. These are subject to the terms stated above. In addition they will always have an order threshold of at least £20 or more, and will be applicable on orders being sent to one address only within the UK. We also offer free delivery on orders over £100 that are being sent to a single address. We cannot offer free delivery if your order is over £100 but being sent to more than one address.


UK Delivery

All of our deliveries are handled by DPDL, who advise that their Tracked service delivery can take between one to two working days in the UK, up to 5 Working days in Europe and up to 10 working days overseas. 98% of DPDL parcels arrive the very next day but some can take an extra day and therefore is not a guaranteed service. Unfortunately we’re not able to take responsibility for any delays on their part. But if there are any problems, we’ll do our best to let you know as soon as we can. DPDL categorises a parcel as ‘lost’ if it still hasn’t been delivered after 15 working days. If your parcel has still not arrived after this time, we’ll happily offer you a refund or send your parcel out again, completely up to you.

We use DPDL as our Courier Next Working Day courier and you will receive a notification email from DPDL the day before the item is due to arrive and then another on the day of delivery specifying your 1 hour delivery slot. Should you wish to amend any of the delivery details, or advise a safe place or to leave with a neighbour you can do so by following the link in the notification emails. Please note, if your parcel is undeliverable for any reason not in our control and being returned, we will offer a re-delivery for the usual shipping fee depending on your delivery address region. 

Unfortunately there are a few places our courier isn’t able to deliver to. They are: Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scilly Isles, Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey, Scottish Highlands and Isle of Wight. 

Our courier company guarantees their deliveries for next working day, but they can’t cover delays that are out of their control. And although we pass any specific delivery instructions on to them, we can’t guarantee that the driver will carry these out.


Overseas Delivery

We send overseas deliveries using DPDL international. Once they arrive at their destination, they’ll need to be signed for.

DPDL internationals parcels are tracked throughout the whole of their delivery journey and need a signature.

We’re not able to accept responsibility for return postage costs or items lost or damaged in transit to us or any other circumstances beyond our control, except at our discretion. Please note any re-delivery instruction will carry additional shipping charges. 

Personal messages

We reserve the right not to send a message that may contain offensive and/or inappropriate content.

Discount Codes

We reserve the right to withdraw our discounts at any time.

When a package ships internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed (e.g. handling fees) by the destination country. These charges are typically due once the package arrives in the destination country.


In general, the buyer is responsible for paying the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. These charges can vary widely and are often based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the taxes, duties, and fees of the destination country.


We can’t predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied.

Biscuit Boutique isn’t responsible for any additional charges that may apply after a purchase is completed on our website.
