How do I pay?
If you are ordering via the online shop then you will be asked for payment as part of the ordering process. If you have used our order form then you can make a bank transfer or card payment over the phone. For all online transactions we use partner with Stripe. They do not accept American Express. Please ensure that you tick the terms and conditions box before going to the payment option and enter all card details correctly. Issues with the payment and error messages at this step often arise from either incorrectly entering your card details or trying to use a card that is accepted on the Stripe Platform. Please contact us with any questions.

Currently we are delivering in the morning, ideally before 2pm whilst there are restrictions in place by the Government. Keep your eye on here for any changes as we will update this as and when we can.

You will receive a confirmation email saying we have your order and further confirmation that your order has been processed. If you don’t receive either of these notifications then please email sales@thefruitbasketdirect.uk for support.

Checking your order

Before you pay for your order please make sure you double check your basket ensuring you have included all the items and correct quantities required. If you discover a user error after your delivery has been received then please contact us for a solution. If we are able to collect the items we will put a credit note onto your account to use against future orders. For any refunds that are user errors you will be charged a 2% admin fee which is what we are charged by the online payment company for transactions. 

Will the driver call before they drop off my order?

The driver will knock on the door, if you are not going to be in please leave delivery instructions in the comments box. We are unable to enter properties due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

What if I need to cancel my order?

Our produce is delivered daily by our suppliers based upon the order requirements.  If you no longer require your delivery then we can only accept cancellations the day before your delivery is due. Unfortunately, if you cancel after this time we will not be able to accept any cancellation requests and will deliver your order.   

Can I set up a regular delivery day?

Of course, however, we know that you might want to change what you need based upon what you are cooking that week or what is in season. We encourage our customers to order what they would like each week. We will always have a slot available so don’t panic about reserving a delivery day. We just ask that you order before your delivery day window closes.

I need to make an amendment to my order; how can I do this?

If you are still within the time window for your delivery day then please add a new order onto the system for what you need. If your delivery window has closed please contact sales@thefruitbasketdirect.uk for support. We will set up a separate order for you for the additional items, however, we do not have the facility to take online payment for these items so you will receive an invoice with your delivery and details how you can pay for these items. 

I am trying to place an order for tomorrow; however, the delivery day isn't available. What can I do? 
We require your order a minimum of 30 hours in advance of your chosen delivery day. The options change after midnight so please be aware when placing an order of this cut off time. If in doubt please contact us at sales@thefruitbasketdirect.uk and we can check your address against our delivery areas

I've selected the wrong delivery day; how can I change this? 

We purchase produce to order based upon your order requirements. We may not be able to change your delivery day if the cut off time has passed. Please contact us to discuss any changes, please note this is at our discretion and could come with a 2% admin charge. 

How do I see the credit applied to my account? 

You will only be able to view the credit applied to your account by logging into your account; entering an order as a guest wont show you this. Any credit available will appear at the checkout.
