What methods of payment are accepted?
We accept a variety of credit cards including American Express,
Discover, MasterCard, and Visa along with PayPal.
I keep getting a message that there is a problem with
my card. My card is fine. Why does that keep happening?
We have a series of checks we conduct
to verify the credit card is valid and secure. Here are a few items
you might want to check to make sure the information you are providing
is correct: make sure you have selected the correct card type
for the card you are using (i.e. Visa, MasterCard, American Express,
Discover), make sure the billing zip code that you entered matches that of
the credit card you provided, also make sure the expiration date of the card is correct and that you have entered the correct. Card

last 3 digits over your signature on the back of your Visa or MasterCard, or the four-digit number to the top-right on the front of your American Express card.

When you place your order online, you are presented with the price
of the merchandise, the shipping charge, and any discounts during checkout. This total charge should also be shown on your confirmation
and shipment e-mails that you received after placing your order.
When your order is shipped, your card will be charged. The final price of your order will be shown in the shipment confirmation email sent to you when the order is shipped.
Do you offer special pricing for commercial customers?
We regularly serve customers in the hospitality and food-related industries like high-end grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, catering companies, and cruise ships. We value our loyal customers and can offer special pricing to qualified customers through our Wholesale Program

Do you offer same day delivery?
We do not hand-deliver our product so the earliest that you
can receive your order is the following business day if you order before 2 pm EST Monday through Thursdays. We also have a Saturday delivery option as well.
Do you ship to Canada, or anywhere outside the U.S.?
We ship only non-perishable items to international destinations. We do not ship to all international destinations however. If you have questions, please e-mail us at email@example.com
Do you deliver to hospital patients?
No. We recommend that you ship the package to the patient's home
or to a family member or friend that can take it to the hospital.
This is for your protection. Our carriers must deliver to the hospital
dock and then the internal hospital staff must get the gift to the
patient. In the past, we found that nearly 50% of the time the internal
hospital delivery department either lost the package or left the
package sitting for extended periods of time which meant they didn't
get it delivered to the patient before they checked out.
Can you deliver to a PO or APO Box?
Sorry, not as this time.
What are the shipping options?
All perishable items are shipped Overnight to ensure freshness. For any other item you may chose Ground (3-6 business days), 2nd Day, or Overnight.
If I request Overnight delivery today will my order arrive tomorrow?
Not necessarily. An order may take up to 3 business days to ship, so even though you request Overnight delivery, that only means the shipping method is overnight, not that it will arrive the next day after you place your order. If you have a specific delivery that in mind, there is a calendar during the checkout process where you can select a specific delivery date. During checkout, on the top right you'll also see an estimated shipping date based on the items in your cart.
Why do I only see Overnight as a shipping
option? Can’t I ship my order any other way?
If you only see Overnight as a shipping option, you
most likely have at least one perishable item in your basket. We
only ship perishable items overnight to guarantee freshness.
Do you deliver on Saturdays?
We deliver on Saturdays for an additional surcharge. The surcharge
amount will be noted once you’ve selected your shipment date
during the ordering process.
How much will shipping cost?
Shipping costs are dependent on a number of factors. Your basket will show your shipping cost as you checkout. You can also view our shipping rates and terms here
Can I specify a future delivery date?
Yes, we have a shipping calendar during our checkout process so that
you can specify an advanced delivery date on our checkout order
Are the delivery dates guaranteed?
Ground shipment delivery dates are not guaranteed. 2nd day shipments will arrive the two business days after shipping.
Overnight shipments will arrive by the next business
day after shipping. We can not guarantee shipping times however as unforseen weather or mechanical delays may occur with FedEx during shipment.
