Placing an Order
Placing an order is easy!
Use our search bar or navigation tools to locate the products you're looking for. Select the colour, size, flavour and/or quantity of products you want, then simply click the "Add to Basket" button.
When you have selected all the products you'd like to order, go to the top right-hand menu bar and click on "My Basket". Here you can modify the quantities of items added or delete them from your basket. When you are satisfied with your selection of products, proceed to checkout. If you are a registered customer, simply enter your login details. New customers can also easily create a customer account.
Next you'll be directed to the Delivery Address page where you can add or select a delivery address. Click on the "Continue" button, then select your preferred method of payment. In the next step, you can choose between shipping companies and opt for a gift box and/or greeting card, if you wish. Once these steps have been completed, you can review, then place your order.
Once the order has been placed, an order confirmation email will be sent to your email address displaying the order details. Your order will be processed as soon as possible after it is placed.
Select up to 2 free samples from our sample page when placing an order at Piccantino . The option can be found on the checkout page as soon as one or more products have been placed in your shopping basket. Select which sample you would like from the page, and it will be added to your order.
Limited sample quantities
We limit the number of samples you can add to your order to ensure that we have enough for everyone. The samples we receive come directly from our manufacturers. The variety of samples we have available depends on which samples we have received.
Varying sample selection
Our sample selection varies, as it is completely dependent on how many samples we receive from our manufacturers. Not all manufacturers send us the same number of samples. The samples you see are the samples that we currently have available.
You can select your own samples, as we want to make sure that you can use the samples you receive In the past, samples were automatically added to orders. Naturally, we could not be sure whether customers could actually use the samples they received. As a result, some samples were disposed of or not used at all. Many times, customers asked that we not add any samples. Our new system reflects our dedication to preserving the environment and not being wasteful. If you do not select any samples in the checkout process, we will not add any to your order.
Product Availability & Stock Levels
We always try to have as many products as possible in stock for you.
You will find information about delivery times in two places on our website: directly on the product page and in your shopping basket.
You can view the status of the product on the product page. Products statuses include:
In stock: The product is available for immediate delivery. It will be shipped on the same or the next working day.
In stock as of: The product is currently not in stock, but should be available again as of the specified date.
Currently unavailable: Unfortunately, we do not have exact information as to when the product will come back in stock. It is possible that the supplier is having delivery issues or that there are difficulties with the manufacturer. To avoid unnecessarily long waits or delivery times, you are not able to order products that are unavailable. However, you can click on the "Notify as soon as available" button, and you will then automatically receive an email as soon as the product is back in stock.
Sold out: The product is no longer in production or has been removed from our range.
The delivery date of your order depends on several factors such as your delivery address, delivery service, the availability of goods, time of order and method of payment. Here is an example:
You order an "In stock" product. Only this product influences the delivery time your order needs. The expected delivery date is displayed next to the product and in the shopping basket.
If you add another product to your shopping basket that is not in stock, the estimated delivery date for the entire order will change. You can see the estimated date of delivery in your shopping basket.
We will let you know if there are any delivery problems with your order.
Additional Delivery Options
You can select a gift box during checkout on the "Delivery Options" page. All products are placed in the gift box when the order is being packed.
If is not possible to add a gift box after your order has been packed.
When selecting the "Gift Box" option, it is not possible to separate the order into products that are gifted and products that should not go in the gift box. This minimises the risk of damage during transport. Gift boxes are not sealed, which means that items can easily be removed without disturbing the structure and appearance of the gift box. If you wish to keep your gift items and other items completely separate, it is best to place two orders.
Warning! We reserve the right to dispatch the selected products using our regular packaging if the items do not fit into a gift box. The gift box will then be cancelled from your order.
At checkout, you can add a personal greeting card to your order. Choose between various designs, write a personal message and preview the finished version before adding it to your basket.
It is not possible to add a greeting card once the order has been completed.
Invoice Not Enclosed
This option is important if you are looking to send a gift box that does not contain the invoice. In such cases, the delivery address can vary from the billing address. The package is then shipped to the delivery address, and the invoice is sent to the billing address.
When the billing and delivery addresses are identical, the gift box and the invoice are packaged separately but are both shipped to the same address.
Isothermal Packaging, Fresh Produce Shipping & Shipping by the Manufacturer
Fresh Produce Shipping
Fresh Produce Shipping
The fresh produce is sourced directly from the manufacturers, i.e. farmers and is processed by hand. Thus, variations in the weight of the items may occur. We do our best to keep these variations at a minimum. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Cooler boxes are not dispatched on public holidays nor on the eve of such holidays. If an order is placed by 07:00, the cooler box may be dispatched on the same business day if possible.
Please note: Fresh produce, as well as opened goods (cans or glass containers), are not liable for return.
Shipping by the Manufacturer
Some products such as bulky items are shipped directly from the manufacturer. This information will be reflected during the order process under "Delivery Options". Regretfully, no tracking information is available for this kind of delivery as it is dispatched directly from our logistics centre.
Our Customer Service Team is happy to assist with any enquiries that you may have regarding your order.
Further Comments Section
Our "Further Comments" section on the "Order Review" page at checkout is used to compile notes and requests for our warehouse. Unfortunately, we are unable to forward any delivery notes to the selected courier.
Our Customer Service Team does their best to forward these notes to the delivery companies. Regretfully, we cannot guarantee that the notes are received or taken into account by the courier.
