I Need To Cancel An Order I Have Been Charged For
While we want to do everything to make our customers happy it is very difficult for us to cancel orders once we have charged for it.
To reduce waste and the need to implement high mark ups Real Food Grocer only purchases what our customers order.
This means that once cut off has passed, we charge your card and immediately begin to order from our suppliers. While some of our supplies may be flexible (for example pantry items) our produce, meat, bread, and dairy are custom orders based on what our customers have in their lists at the time of cut off.
If an order was to be cancelled once cut off has passed, the stock ordered from our suppliers, which is perishable must be paid for by us regardless and the stock will sadly go to waste.
While in the past we have attempted to re allocate these orders through donation or via a flash sale we quickly found that the number of cancelled orders were too great and the stock was wasted.
It is for this reason that we encourage our customers to be familiar with the customer interface which allows you to skip orders, remove items and delete lists from your account, the only time this is not possible is after your cut off has passed.
