Welcome to Deliciously dates - The gourmet dates specialist.

Shipping and Returns




Due to unprecedented demand, overwhelming order volumes, orders may take a little longer to deliver than advertised. our team is working working weekends, late hours, and extra resources to try and clear the huge backlog of orders as fast as possible. We are processing orders in order of date received. Please do not place orders unless you are willing to wait 3-5 working days.

We use Royal Mail and UPS and offer two courier service options for the UK

  • Economy  3-5 working day service for £3.50-3.95. Working days are Monday to Friday. 
  • Expedited tracked 1-2 working day service for £5.50. Working days are Monday to Friday. Orders must be placed before 2.30pm in order for the 1-2 days shipping to apply. 

We have suspended free shipping until further notice.

*We usually ship within a working day of receiving an order, often within hours of receiving your order. Whilst Economy shipped orders are usually received within 3-5 working days of dispatch (quite often sooner!) and Expedited shipped orders are usually received within 1-2 working day, we cannot guarantee this. Please note these delivery estimates apply to non-remote UK postcodes.

*If your order is dispatched by Courier service a signature will be required on delivery.

*For remote postcode addresses in the UK (these include Northern Ireland, Jersey, Isle of Man, Scottish Highlands & Islands, and some other UK areas) we will use either UPS or Royal Mail depending on the location. Delivery times for these remote areas will vary from the delivery times stated above.

Tracking your parcel

Please email  to request for tracking number 

Please also note that the shipping service is automatically selected by our systems based on address, weight and other criteria and the service selected cannot be changed.

Leaving Orders in Safe Place

We often get asked to leave orders in a safe place. We cannot ask the Courier to leave parcels in a safe place as this voids our insurance. You may be able to arrange this directly with the Courier but we can accept no responsibility for lost parcels if the customer informs the courier to leave a parcel and does not provide a signature. It is safer to ask the courier to leave your order with a neighbour and obtain a signature.

We will not request couriers leave parcels without a signature.

Order Not Received

If in the rare event you have not received your order within 7 working days please check the tracking information and if unable to resolve with the Courier or Royal Mail please contact us immediately via email (

If within the 7 working days tracking shows there is an issue that you cannot resolve with the Courier please contact us immediately via our Contact us via email, it is your responsibility to report lost items to us within 7 days of notified dispatch.


If your order is damaged in any way in transit, if signing for the order you must note that the order is received damaged on signing.  If all the order or any item in your order is damaged you must contact us within 48 hours of delivery so we can raise a claim with our delivery service and resolve for you as soon as possible.  For our claim we require images of the damaged goods and you must not discard of, nor consume the goods until the matter has been resolved.  Issues cannot be resolved without photo evidence.

Inspection of Goods

You must also inspect all the goods received on delivery to make sure you are happy with them, and that the order is complete. Any errors must be reported within 7 days. We can only refund food products within 30 days if you find a problem with them.  We do not take responsibility for how you may store and use them.
