Can I pick up my order?
We are an online store only. Sorry, but we don't have a bricks and mortar store where you can come by and hand choose your products or pick up your order.
Please head over to our Recurring orders section to see everything you need to know about our recurring orders.

Why is the 'Add to Box' button Green sometimes, and Orange other times?
A Green 'Add to Box' button indicates that the product is available for you to order for any delivery day. An Orange 'Add to Box' button means that the product has some limitations on delivery. Pressing the button will give you more information about when it will be available if its not available for your selected delivery date. You then have the choice to change your delivery date in My Box, if you still want the product.
Can I edit my order?
You can edit your order as many times as you like. Just remember, once we start packing the order, you are limited in what you can do. Your order status moves to "packing" once the first item is packed into your box, and you can see this status in your Active Orders section. Often we start packing your order at about 11am the day before your delivery day. At this time you are unable to remove any items from the order and you are unable to cancel the order. You may continue to add items right up until just before the order is due to leave the warehouse.
Can I cancel my order?
You can cancel your order at any time up until we start packing the order. Your order status moves to "packing" once the first item is packed into your box, and you can see this status in your Active Orders section. Often we start packing your order at about 11am the day before your delivery day.
How are cold and frozen products transported?
We take all care with cold and frozen items. They are packed for you on the day of delivery and are placed in our refrigerated vans for transport to your door. This does mean that there is likely to be some softening of your items by the time they get to you but they have been kept cold, so can be refrozen or placed in your refrigerator for consumption.
Please note, we cannot provide refunds, credits or replacements on any colds items that may appear defrosted on arrival.
What are Mixed Box Preferences?
When you purchase a mixed box of fruit or vegetables, you can let us know which fruit or vegetables you like or dislike. Maintain this list in the Mixed Box Preferences area under the 'account and orders' menu. This list will then display each time you add a Mixed Box to your My Box, allowing you to edit the preferences for your current order, or edit it permanently.
You can also choose to like/dislike a grouping of products. For example, you can type in 'herbs' and by hovering over the word (on a desktop) or tapping on the word (mobile), then you can see which herbs are included in the grouping.
What is a colds box deposit?
In the past, we charged a $2.50 deposit on a styrofoam colds box and frozen water bottle which we used to keep the meat and dairy cool in transit. This small charge was not designed to penalise, rather, it was to encourage the return of as many of these boxes as possible. We no longer use styrofoam colds boxes, but, of course any previous deposits will be credited when you send back the styrofoam from previous orders.
Make sure you leave your boxes and bottles out for pick up on the day of your next order.
Why is my website order and my tax invoice for different amounts?
If there's a difference between your website order total and your tax invoice, it might be due to weights. Every apple doesn't weigh the same as the next apple, so when you order 1kg apples, we can't necessarily get exactly 1kg apples in your box - it might be 1.01kg or .98kg. So you'll be charged for the weight in your box.
I think I have been overcharged or charged twice?
To ensure protection of your credit card details, payments are processed using a secure, third party payment gateway service run by Braintree. This service is PCI-DSS compliant which is the industry standard for secure credit card payments.
At Doorstep we charge orders once they are packed and ready to leave the warehouse and the pre-authorisation is a way for us to ensure payment will be available at this point.
We charge in this way as much of what we sell is sold by weight and subject to market availability. It is important that we only charge you for exactly what has been sent and this cannot be calculated until the order has been packed.
Once your order is packed and ready to ship then we alert PayPal or your bank of the correct amount and claim it from the pre-authorisation they are holding.
When we have captured the amount, any money owing to you from the pre-authorisation will flow back into your account. From now, it is up to PayPal or your bank. It can take a week to fourteen days, depending on your institution but it is typically with a few days.
