Shipping Information

GENERAL SHIPPING INFORMATION

  • Sweetsworld does not accept international phone orders. All orders must be placed directly on our website through international check out.
SEVERE WEATHER DELAYS
  • While we do our best to ensure timely delivery of all shipments, Sweetsworld is not responsible for delivery delays, damages or non-delivery caused by adverse or unpredictable weather conditions, natural disasters or other acts of god.
DON’T LET IT MELT! WARM WEATHER SHIPPING
  • PLEASE NOTE: during the months of May-September ground and 2 day orders will only ship Monday-Wednesday and Overnight orders will ship Monday-Thursday. No orders will ship on Friday.
  • We, of course LOVE chocolate and candy at Sweetsworld, however, both are extremely heat sensitive during the “warmer months” which we generally define as May through September, or any time of year when the weather is 75 degrees and above at the shipping or delivery location.
  • Though we do take great care in packing our candy with insulation and ice packs during warm weather, we suggest 2 day or overnight shipping for select heat sensitive items which when added to your cart will be noted as such. Certain items must be shipped utilizing ice packs and cooler bags, if one or more items in your order falls into this category, a cooler bag and ice pack will be added to your order at a cost of $2.50. You will only be charged this small fee once per shipment, regardless of how many items are in the shipment.
  • The less time your chocolate is in transit, the better and while this will greatly lower the chances of your chocolate melting; we still cannot guarantee chocolate will always arrive un-melted. If you receive melted product please follow the below steps in order for a replacement or refund to be issued:
  • If you are shipping to a residence, keep in mind when placing your order AUS Post does not require a signature and will leave the package as long as they deem it safe. Once you receive your emailed tracking details and estimated delivery date, make sure someone will be home to receive it or leave a note or call AUS Post at 1300 526 397 with additional instructions to hold onto the package, so that the package is not left outside in direct sunlight.
  • If you have received melted product, you are required to take a picture right away and contact customer service within 24 hours of AUS Post delivering by either email at hello@sweetsworld.com.au or 1300 526 397 Monday-Friday 9am-5pm EST in order to have a replacement sent or be refunded.
