What if my Direct Debit doesn’t go through or my credit card is cancelled?
If there are any problems with the payment coming through they will be debited back to your account when we become aware of them and will be added back to your debt. Subject to the weekly spend allowance you may continue shopping in the "Daily Essentials" shop, however it may be necessary to fund your shopping with a one-off online debit or credit card payment in order for your deliveries to continue, whilst the problem with the regular payment method is being resolved.
For Best of Local orders if no valid credit or debit card is set up at the time of final confirmation of orders at 5pm three days before the day of delivery, then these orders will not be confirmed or delivered and the order will be cancelled. No charge or payment will arise.
Please do ensure you have enough money in your account to pay your weekly DD or that if you have to cancel a credit card due to loss or theft or it is due to expire that you update your details as soon as possible to prevent any interruption to your service. We also regret that in the event of a payment failure that we may charge your account £4 to cover the cost of bank charges and administration that we will face.
Can I still pay the milkman direct?
No, the online service needs to be settled online.
I am an offline customer can I pay for my account online?
I’m afraid not. You can pay your milkman by cheque or cash, or set up a direct debit on our offline system by requesting the form from your milkman and leaving it in an envelope for your milkman to collect or mailing it into your local depot.
What credit/debit cards do you accept?
We accept most debit or credit cards for both recurring and one-off payments. Look for the symbols at the bottom of the page or on Sagepay when you go through there to pay. We do not however accept Diners Club or JCB.
I bought enough products to qualify for a promotional discount or bonus across my multiple accounts – why have I not received it?
Promotions are calculated at each individual delivery location, not over your multiple accounts, and so any promotional thresholds have to be met at that location within the specified period in order to qualify for promotional discounts or free products. However, your overall account is where your individual locations are brought together for accounting, billing and payment purposes.
How do I know what I owe?
We will display a balance on your account in the My Account dashboard Order and Payment History, which will include all credits and debits and the current balance for goods delivered but not yet invoiced relating to the "Daily Essentials" side of the website (ie milk, bread, store cupboard items etc).
Payments are taken from your chosen credit or debit card on the Monday each week to clear amounts owed up to the previous Saturday which are invoiced up to that point. You will be sent a weekly email reminding you to log on to go online and look at your balance, deliveries and payments for that week, which of course you can do at any time. Invoice and payment details, including invoices in pdf format are stored on the Order Payment History section of the My Account dashboard.
Best of Local orders need to be confirmed normally by 9pm two days before your chosen delivery day, or by 9pm on Friday for a Monday delivery. Payment will then be taken and so no balance is ever owing for these as if payment is not successfully taken, or the order is below the minimum order value at this time, then the order is cancelled and no charge or payment arises. Very rarely if a refund is made relating to a Best of Local order where part of the payment was by voucher rather than card then this amount when refunded will accrue back to your balance of account. All other refunds for Best of Local are credited straight to your chosen credit or debit card.
