FAQs

Delivery

Has my order been despatched?
We will always email you to let you know when your order has left John & Ginger, giving you peace of mind that your goods are on the way. Of course if your email has been lost in cyber space, or you delete it by mistake, you can check the status of your order at any time, by signing in to your account.

When will I receive my order?
Most of our UK orders arrive within 3-5 working days, or even sooner. Please note that orders are occasionally delayed due to bank and public holidays, and it is recommended to allow extra time for your order to arrive during these periods. These times depends on the service that you've chosen between Standard, Premium or Special delivery.

Why hasn't my order arrived?
On the odd occasion we experience delays with the service provided by Royal Mail and orders arrive later than intended. We understand how frustrating this can be, and for this we sincerely apologise. If your order hasn't arrived by the expected due date then please contact your local Royal Mail Collection depot as calling cards aren't always left.

Web: Royal Mail
Phone: 08457 740740

Please note that Royal Mail will not declare a parcel lost until 14 working days have passed since despatch for the UK and 21 working days for international orders. John and Ginger can only entertain claims for lost orders after this period of time and within 90days of despatch.

Can my order be sent to a BFPO address?
We are happy to send goodies to your loved ones in the services, please make sure you list the destination country as the UK.

Will I be charged import duty or tax by customs?
Our prices include VAT at the current rate. All countries outside the EU have additional customs charges which might be applied to your order upon it reaching its country of destination. Please note we are not in a position to refund any customs or import duty paid.

I have an item on back order, when will it arrive?

Where possible, the estimated delivery date will be displayed on your invoice. You will be added to our waiting list for this item and it will be despatched to you as soon as it comes back in to stock.
