Once you place your order, I will review it and put it through for processing. If I notice any missing information or anticipate any issues, I will get in touch with you to ask further questions. Otherwise your order will be lovingly prepared from scratch by hand, wrapped and packed to be delivered within 5 working days of ordering.
Bespoke orders are welcome but please be aware they will take longer to process due to the nature of the personalised request.
Subscription Box Service
If you don’t love The Cocoa Box then you can cancel your subscription and discontinue your monthly payments at any time but I will be sad to see you leave us.
In order to cancel before you are renewed for the next shipment, you need to cancel or contact me prior to the your renewal date (the same date that you made your payment on the previous month).
To cancel login to your account and click the account settings and then cancel.
If your subscription has has already renewed and your payment has been taken but you’d like to cancel before your box is posted, you must request cancellation by the 5th of the month to be eligible for a refund.
IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL BEFORE TO THE FIFTH DAY OF A CALENDAR MONTH, YOU CANNOT BE REFUNDED FOR THAT MONTH’S SHIPMENT. I DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ON BOXES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN SHIPPED.
I am unable to offer refunds on boxes which have already been dispatched/ received. The Cocoa Box is a surprise treat wellness box and therefore this is the risk you agree to when you sign up for your subscription.
If you don’t like the box contents, then you are more than welcome to gift the items to a family member, friend or client.
Your payment is taken as you place your order and you pass through the payment process. You will always be charged at the rate advertised at the point of sale. Postage and Packaging charges are clearly shown and added to your order and shown on the website prior to placing your order.
PaymentYour payment is processed via a fully authorised Payment Service which ensures that all your information remains totally confidential and I never see any of the card numbers.
Payment is taken as you place your order and if the payment does not authorise successfully, your order will not be successfully processed. Please check you have received a confirmation for your order and confirmation of payment by email. If you have not received one of these, your order may not have been placed successfully.
I currently use first class postal services to most of the UK with prices starting from £4.95 per order, the postal cost is fully stated on the website before you make payment for your order. Your order is hand crafted so please allow up to 5 working days for delivery, although I aim to keep this time frame as short as possible. I am looking at other couriers to extend my services but this could increase the postage costs.
If you are liaising with me for wedding favours, I require a £40 non refundable deposit to secure my time for you and so I can start to order stock for your order. Full payment is required 4 weeks prior to delivery.
If you are liaising with me for larger projects then I require full payment upfront to secure and plan my time for you and so I can order stock for your order.
I would not ask you to return any items to me. I do ask for photographic evidence for my records in case of postage or heat damage so I can improve my services and packaging to my customers.
As all orders are made to order I cannot offer a refund if you have changed your mind once your items have left my premises and have been dispatched.
Refunds will be considered for breakages if you contact me within 24hrs of delivery.
Great care is taken to package your order and avoid breakages, I do ask that you are in to accept delivery of your order.
Your order will be dispatched with cool packs during the warmer months and I only post Monday to Thursday to avoid your packages being left in warm warehouses for long periods which could cause heat damage.
If you were not in to take delivery of your order, I cannot consider refunds due to heat damage where your order has been left for prolonged periods in the warmth given these particular circumstances.
I cannot be held responsible for delays in the postal service.
Once your chocolates have been delivered to your premises you can refrigerate them to keep them cool especially in the warmer months.
