Delivery & Shipping

Delishops Wholesale is what is called a Dropship platform. This means Delishops makes the sale on your behalf, and you ship the product direct to the Buyer.

  • Chargeable delivery band – between their MOQ and FOQ – with a flat delivery charge for this service

You can set up your delivery schedule according to Total vale of the Buyer’s order (net) or Total number of cases ordered.

Delishops allows you to vary your delivery charge, MOQ and FOQ across 5 regions of the UK. These regions correlate to what most courier companies use. Courier companies do vary in their terms and conditions, so Delishops can not guarantee our pre-set regions exactly match that used by your chosen courier.

The Delishops pre-set shipping regions are

  • Mainland UK
  • Highlands & Islands of Scotland
  • Northern Ireland
  • Guernsey & Jersey
  • Isle of Wight, Isle of Man and Isles of Scilly

Frequently Asked Questions

We don’t. What happens on Delishops Social Market stays on Delishops Social Market.

[We make our money from subscriptions and commissions from the people who sell on the Market]

Nope, but we try to keep things light and fluffy with no soggy bottom feeders.

A little bit. We respond to complaints, and will take down anything that sounds too angry or ‘ist. We tried to write a policy about it, but decided just to tell everybody to play nice instead and see what happens.

Fortunately there are plenty of other platforms where people can show face if they don’t want to play by the book.

Very good question. For most recipes I use 70-80% cocoa, the rest is melted chocolate, and 120% of the recommended butter. If your skewer comes out dry you’ve baked it too long.

Still have questions about how Delishops can help your business?
