However, in the event the goods are listed on the Worldfoods direct site at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information received from its suppliers but Alchemyst have accepted your order before the discrepancy is noticed, Alchemyst shall e-mail you to ask whether you are willing to pay the correct price for the goods ordered.  If you are unwilling to pay the correct price, Alchemyst reserves the right to cancel the contract immediately without any liability to you.

3.3 If Alchemyst exercises its right under clause 3.2 to cancel a contract it will immediately issue a credit to your debit or credit account if it has already made a charge to your card before cancelling your order; or Alchemyst will not charge your debit or credit card until the goods are despatched to you.

Delivery times quoted are estimates only, and Alchemyst shall not be liable for any delays caused except to the extent caused wilfully or negligently by Alchemyst. However, unless we have agreed a longer period for delivery with you, we will either dispatch goods within 24 hours (excluding Saturday and Sunday) of you placing the order or we will let you know as soon as it will not be possible to meet this obligation.  If we do let you know, then we will either agree a new time for delivery with you or, at your request, refund any monies paid by you in respect of the delayed goods. Delivery costs are weight based. Alchemyst uses Royal Mail to dispatch goods under 2 KG to the UK and Northern Ireland, under 4KG to the Channel Islands and under 2KG for European deliveries. Orders above these weights are dispatched by our courier services. Delivery time for courier services to UK mainland addresses is overnight, 3-5 working days for Europe and 4-10 working days for non-European orders. Delivery times are estimates only. We are reliant on Royal Mail and Courier services to meet the delivery time estimates.

We guarantee that any breakages will be either refunded or replaced. We require photographic evidence of all breakages for a refund to be issued.

If in the unlikely event your delivery has been lost in transit we will attempt to track your order (for all orders over 2KG) and if we are unable to locate your shipment, we will either send a replacement order or refund the total cost of the order. For UK deliveries a refund claim will only be considered 14 working days after confirmation of dispatch and after 21 days for European and International orders.

If in the unlikely event your order is accidentally dispatched as standard delivery instead of expedited delivery, when the expedited service has been paid for by the customer, Alchemyst will refund the customer cost difference between the premier & the standard delivery option. We require photographc evidence of the postage stamp for a refund to be issued.We will only refund or replace damaged goods which make the product unfit for consumption.
