Terms & Conditions
All pricing quoted is in New Zealand dollars and includes GST. Pricing, special offers and promotional items are subject to availability, and My Chocolate Box reserves the right to cancel or amend these without notice.
Every effort is made to ensure that My Chocolate Box is always in stock. However, in the event of a large surge in orders, sometimes availability maybe out of our control.
Our promise to you is that if for any reason we cannot dispatch your order within 5 working days, we will notify you within 48 hours and let you know the time frame for delivery.
We love chocolate too – and don’t want you to have to wait too long for your chocolate fix! We aim to dispatch all orders with-in 24 hours of receiving them, excluding weekends. Delivery in most cases will be with-in 1 – 3 working days, but for rural or South Island deliveries, depending on road conditions, this may be longer. Please allow the following WORKING days for your delivery:
- Auckland 1 – 2 days
- North Island (exc Rural Delivery) 2 – 3 days
- South Island (exc Rural Delivery) 3 – 5 days (most are 3 working days)
- Rural Delivery (as defined by our Couriers) 5 – 7 days
Please note – we dispatch on a late afternoon courier pickup, so when you get your tracking email (from GOSWEETSPOT), please understand this was only lodged into the courier system that evening. If you have urgent delivery requirements, contact us to discuss options. We do not deliver on weekends. Orders placed after midday will miss that day’s courier pick up and won’t be dispatched until at least the next work-day afternoon.
We do not dispatch goods on a Friday in Summer to prevent chocolate sitting in the courier depot over the weekend. Our couriers use air conditioned vans, so your chocolate will reach you in excellent condition, even on hot days. All boxes will be marked “NO SUN, KEEP COOL”. However, there may be times where there is excessive heat (heatwaves) – in these instances, we reserve the right to delay delivery until this has passed –don’t worry – this is rare, and we will contact you with-in 2 working days of receiving your order to let you know!
All items must be signed for at point of delivery – so we know the right person is getting the chocolates! We recommend you get your chocolate sent to an address where you will be during the day – often this is a work address. In the event you specifically request to have chocolate left without signature, this will be entirely at your risk, and should we have proof of delivery from the courier company, we will consider the package delivered. All My Chocolate Box deliveries must be signed for.
We do not deliver to PO Boxes – we have no control over the temperature and humidity of the holding rooms at the PO Box facilities, and want your chocolate to reach you in optimum condition!
We reserve the right to refuse refunds if your goods turn up after you required them, subject to us having stayed with-in the bounds of these terms and conditions – so please order your My Chocolate Box early if it is for a special occasion.
- Standard (exc RD) $5.00
- Rural Delivery NZ wide (RD) $9.90
- Saturday Delivery $4.00 extra (not currently available, but coming soon)
If your product has arrived damaged, please contact us with-in 48 hours of delivery, and we will work out the best solution for you. You can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on 09 521 6063 during business hours. This will either be a replacement or refund in full (including the courier fee), depending on the situation. In the event there are damaged goods, we will need those goods returned to us with-in seven days. My Chocolate Box is not responsible for the cost of returning these items.
We cannot offer refunds if you have chosen incorrectly, so please order carefully!
My Chocolate Box is not responsible for items that are delayed, damaged, or returned due to the supply of an incorrect delivery address – so please double check your details carefully!
We offer a number of plans where you can pay in advance in return for a cheaper price. These are a 3 month subscription & a 6 month subscription. At the end of the period, these plans will auto-renew for another 3 or 6 months. Once these plans are purchased, they are non-refundable, so choose carefully. While it is free to cancel your subscription at any time, a 3 month plan subscription means that you will only be able to cancel that at the end of the current 3 month period. You cannot cancel a plan while that plan is still current. A monthly plan will cancel immediately however.
We also offer 3, 6 & 12 month gift subscriptions. These do not renew and expire once the required number of monthly boxes have been sent. Like the plans above, these are non-refundable & cannot be cancelled halfway through the term.
We have an Affiliate income system where you can earn money for referrals. By signing up, you agree to our terms & conditions.
Affiliates are paid $10.00 (inc gst) per referral. A referral is where someone signs up to My Chocolate Box (including monthly, 3 or 6 month plans, or 3,6, 12 month gift subscriptions) using your referral link.
Payments are available once your earning threshold hits $50. To claim your affiliate income, you will need to supply us with a New Zealand bank account number.
We reserve the right to change these terms & conditions at any time.
