Mornington Peninsula Chocolate Policies

MP Chocolates Delivery Policy

At MP Chocolates, we pride ourselves on delivering your order in optimal condition and take extra care when packaging your goods prior to delivery.  We use a combination of polystyrene boxes, bubble wrap and dry ice to ensure your chocolate does not melt in warmer temperature conditions.

As we use Australia Post Express service, we only deliver from Monday to Thursday.  We do not deliver to Northern Territory as deliveries often take more than 2 days, which can result in melted chocolate upon delivery.  If you did not specify a Post Box delivery address, your order will most likely end up at your local post office in any case, so please ensure you check for parcels regularly to ensure you take possession of your order as soon as possible.

Is there a lead-time?

As we are a small business, we do have a potential 7-day lead-time in getting your order ready for delivery.  If we have the product you ordered in stock, we will send your order the following business day (excluding Friday-Sunday).  If we do not have the product in stock, it may take up to 7 days for us to make your order to send.  If you are concerned with the 7-day lead-time, please give us a call to find out more information.  

What are the delivery costs and how long will delivery take?

See the table below for an indication of delivery times for each state in Australia. If you live in regional or outlying areas, your order may take an extra day to be delivered.

Returns & Refunds

MP Chocolates cannot exchange or refund goods due to the perishable nature of chocolates, so please place your order carefully.

Goods Damaged on Delivery

MP Chocolates is not responsible for goods damaged in transit but will consider any claims made if they are made within 24 hours upon delivery of goods.  Your claim must be supported by photographic evidence.  If you wish to claim your order as damaged on delivery, please email us photo’s of the damaged goods.  We cannot be held responsible for orders that have melted upon delivery as we always include sufficient amounts of synthetic dry ice and packaging to ensure the weather does not affect your order. 

Payment Options

All orders must be prepaid and made during the checkout process of placing your order.  Purchasing online with your credit card or using PayPal is the simplest and most convenient way of shopping. Simply fill in your details and we charge the amount accordingly.  MP Chocolates accepts most major credit cards: VISA & MasterCard.
