Delivery / Returns

All terms and definitions in this policy shall be the same as those used in the Terms and Conditions Policy, unless otherwise stated.  This policy will encompass and incorporate by reference the provisions of the Terms and Conditions Policy and should the provisions of this policy differ to the Terms and Conditions Policy, the provisions in the Terms and Conditions Policy shall prevail.

Acceptance of any order and subsequent delivery of the Product will be subject to the overall legal and regulatory framework applicable to both Purple Orchid Pharma Ltd and the person submitting the order.  Accordingly, we reserve the right to reject any order or part thereof, to the extent we believe (in our absolute discretion) that to fulfil all or part of such order would be in contravention of the applicable legal or regulatory requirement.

After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. Once we have verified your order and payment details and have approved your order for shipment, we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product will be dispatched within 3 working days of the Dispatch Confirmation. In the unlikely event that we encounter a problem when processing your order, you will receive an email from us detailing the problem and requesting further information.

We will send you an email as soon as we have despatched your goods confirming your order details and informing you of the parcel tracking ID if applicable.

Delivery will be made to the Delivery Point specified by you on the order form.

If you have any query regarding your delivery, if it is late or you believe it is lost please contact orders@purpleorchidpharma.com.

Shipping times will vary but as the items are all sent under [Royal Mail] service, we would hope that your items will reach you approximately 48 hours from dispatch of goods and 96 hours from placing the Order. Please note we cannot take responsibility for any delays to orders due to any difficulties experienced by [Royal Mail], customs clearance or payment transaction delays.

Please refer to the Terms and Conditions Policy for further details about the order process.

Track Your Order

To track your parcel you need a copy of the delivery note emailed to you on dispatch of your order. If you do not have this please call 0844 415 2420 so we can help.

On your delivery note it shows you the delivery method and the tracking number if applicable. Please refer to each delivery method below to see how you can track your order.

Royal Mail Standard Delivery and Expedited Shipping

Royal Mail standard delivery cannot be tracked. Terms and Conditions state that for first class mail, postage is not classified as lost until 15 working days have elapsed. At this point a compensation claim will be submitted allowing us to redespatch the goods by recorded delivery free of charge.
