We accept all orders for products and services subject to availability. If your order cannot be fulfilled you may be offered an alternative product, partial shipment or cancellation of the entire order, at your choice.

You should check your order as soon as it is delivered and you must inform us of any errors or damage within 48 hours of receipt. Once we accept and dispatch your order it is your responsibility to ensure that the package can be delivered. If your order has not arrived within 15 days of placing it you should check if it is being held at your local Royal Mail Delivery Office (not necessarily your nearest Post Office).

12. RETURNS

We want you to feel confident about shopping with The Chilli Oil Company. If you have a problem, or are unhappy with your purchase, then we will do our best to put the matter right. In the first instance contact: sales@thechillioilcompany.co.uk.

You can return any product within 14 days of receipt of your order as long as the container or box is unopened and the item is returned in good, resalable condition. You may only return goods after 14 days with our prior agreement, and you will be refunded less a 20% re-stocking charge.

This does not affect your statutory rights – the Distance Selling Regulations allow you to return any order for a full refund within 7 days of receiving them. You must look after the goods and return them to us unopened and in good condition.

If items are returned to us because they could not be delivered we will try to contact you to arrange re-delivery. If this is not possible we will refund the value of your purchase, less a 20% re-stocking charge.

International Returns: If your item(s) are returned back to us for whatever reason, we will resend the items subject to a redelivery charge (based on size of package and destination). If you decide to not have the goods returned, we will charge a £20 restocking charge (or 15% of the order value if over £100). We will be unable to refund actual delivery costs (these could be over £20).

We accept no responsibility if your order is stopped by international customs.
