Shipping and Delivery

All orders are shipped from our warehouse located in Vancouver, BC NOT from individual Purdys Retail Shops.

Warm Weather Shipping

As temperatures rise, we do our best to ensure your chocolate arrives in the best condition possible.

  • Orders are packed in insulated containers with reusable ice packs to help keep your chocolate cool and reduce the risk of melting. We only use express delivery services.
  • When possible, we highly recommend shipping to a business address rather than a residential address to keep your package in a temperature-controlled environment as long as possible.
  • To keep your chocolate from being in transit more than a few days, we are only shipping orders Monday through Thursday.

Enjoy faster shipping to the following cities across Canada this season:

  • Vancouver Lower Mainland (specific cities) - 2 business days
  • Calgary and Edmonton - 3 business days
  • Greater Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Gatineau - 4 business days
  • Elsewhere in Canada and the United States: see table below

Purdys Gift Guarantee

We guarantee the quality of our products and take great care to ensure your gifts arrive in perfect condition (as if you'd delivered them yourself). Exceptions may apply for international shipments as we cannot guarantee the quality of chocolates shipped outside of Canada & US.

If your order is incorrect or damaged in any way, please call 1.888.478.7397 ext 4 or email within 5 days of delivery and we will promptly send a replacement. Proof of damage is required. We do not accept returns.

Shipping within Canada

We have extended the timeframe in which your order will be processed and shipped to ensure your order meets your delivery expectations and to allow our team to work safely in our fulfillment center.

An order placed today online or by phone will be processed and shipped out from us within 3 business days. This means it could take a total of 5-10 business days to receive your order, depending on the service you select.

Shipping is calculated per delivery (shipment to a single address). For orders with multiple deliveries, shipping is calculated for each delivery depending on the destination. Applicable taxes are applied at checkout. Taxes are calculated according to the destination (i.e. the province or territory where you are sending your gifts).

Please note that the FDA requires that all orders shipped to the USA must include a recipient's first and last name, even if shipping to a business.

International Shipping

International orders are shipped by air mail. Shipping rates vary by destination. Calculated shipping fees will appear upon checkout prior to being required to submit payment.

We have carefully evaluated various factors, including impacts to the freshness of our chocolates, order volume, customer value, and the intricacies involved in delivering our food products directly to consumers overseas. As a result, we will no longer be delivering to some international destinations we previously serviced.

We will continue to service the following countries: Canada, United States, UK, Japan, Australia, Netherlands & Germany

For further questions, please call 1-888-478-7397 EXT 4 to connect with a Customer Service Specialist.

We do not guarantee that the chocolates will arrive in perfect condition - they can sometimes be crushed or melted in transit or often opened while being held at customs. International shipments do not qualify for our quality gift guarantee or our shipping guarantee. International shipments will not be replaced or refunded. Orders shipped outside of Canada are not charged Canadian taxes; however, all orders pass through customs and are subject to import duties, taxes, and custom processing fees. A customs invoice will arrive with your parcel or may follow in the mail. Recipients are responsible for paying these additional fees.

Purdys Chocolatier is unable to provide estimates for customs fees. Check with your local customs office for more information.
