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.

Get all your shopping done early with pre-orders.

Chocolates on pre-order aren't ready to ship yet (because we're still hard at work making them at our Factory Kitchen!). Each pre-order has an estimated availability for shipping date which is when the chocolates should be ready to ship to you. This date is found at the top of the product page; please make note of the date and the estimated shipping time before purchasing. Estimated availability might also change but we do our best to keep to the schedule.

When you purchase pre-orders:

  1. Your credit card is charged when you place your order.
  2. We ship your entire order together when all products become available to ship and notify you by email. This may take up to 5 weeks. When placing pre-orders, you agree to these terms.

If your order includes both pre-order and in-stock items:

To receive in-stock items immediately, please select the Ship to Multiple Addresses tab during checkout and place your pre-orders in a separate shipment, even if you're shipping all your products to the same address. We will notify you by email when each shipment is sent.

  • Live chat with one of our customer service specialists.
  • Email and include "pre-order" in the subject line.

International orders are shipped by air mail. Shipping rates vary by destination. For costs and information on destinations that we ship to, please contact us at 1.888.478.7397 ext 4.

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.
