When will my shipment arrive?
Orders will be shipped out as soon as possible and you will be notified via email with a tracking number. In general, shipments tend to arrive within 1 - 2 business days, however it is important to note that with the current delays due to covid-19, we cannot guarantee an exact time or date. We ask for your patience and we will do everything we can do to get your order to you as quickly and safely as possible.
If you need your chocolate order by a certain date please let us know and we will do our best to get it to you by that date.
Do you deliver during summer months?
Yes, however, due to the heat of summer months (May to August) our chocolate product is more at risk of melting if staying put in hot environments. This is why we only ship out orders Monday - Thursday and not over weekends. This will help reduce the risk of orders sitting in known temperatured warehouses. We also offer fast express shipping to help reduce the risk of melting during transit. Additionally, we include 1 time use cold packs with every shipment, lined with thermal packing to help the chocolate stay cool during it's shipping transit! The thermal cooling packs will come at no additional charge to you!
We highly recommend that customers that order chocolate during summer months, pay attention to shipment tracking and ensure orders refrain from sitting in hot lockers or on porches as much as possible.
Do you offer refunds for melted/damaged shipments?
Hot Shot Chocolate is not responsible for melted or damaged packages from shipment and buyers purchase at own risk. We do everything we can to prepare your order for safe travel.
Unfortunately in the postal service, chocolate is categorized as perishable goods which are not recognized for insurance money back. Refunds are not applicable, however with photo proof of damage, you may be issued store credit. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you accept returns?
Unfortunately for health and safety reasons, we cannot accept returns on any of our chocolate orders. If you are unsatisfied with your order please let us know and we would be happy to discuss alternate options.
