Everything we make requires a great deal of care
so it's not surprising that we work hard to ensure it reaches you in pristine condition

Delivery Information

We put the same care and attention to detail into our mail order service as we do into making the treats for which we’re famous. Because our Craft Bakery freshly bakes different cakes on different days, what you order will affect when your parcel can be sent out. We do this to ensure your items reach you in perfect condition. Don't worry though, we make every effort to despatch your items as quickly as possible.

We are only able to send selected products overseas. Carriage prices vary for overseas deliveries and restrictions apply to some countries. Bettys cannot be held responsible should local customs authorities confiscate any item or charge any import duty. Please be aware that for all parcels entering the US via a courier service, the FDA (Food & Drugs Administration) impose an custom clearance charge fee of $20.75 which is payable at the point of delivery by the recipient. This is not a pre-payable charge. 

From November 2010 all parcels over $60.00 CAD in value delivered to Canada by courier will be subject to duty and taxes. There are some countries that we are unable to ship to, please call customer services on +44 (0)1423 814008 for further details.

Tracking Your Order

Once you’ve placed your order, we’ll send you an email confirming that your order is being dealt with and how it will be delivered. When it’s ready to go, we'll send you a second email to let you know that your package is on its way.

If your order is being delivered by courier or via Royal Mail tracked service you will also be provided with a reference number which will allow you to keep track of the delivery. But please note: we are unable to track First Class and Airmail deliveries.

If you want to view the status of your order, you can log into your account at any time to check how it’s doing.

When Will My Order Arrive?

Where a week-ending delivery date has been selected and courier delivery selected, we'll ensure your package is with you by the Friday of that week at the latest.

Couriered deliveries are made Monday to Friday (except public holidays) from 8.00am until 6.00pm and require a signature on receipt. If no one is at home, a card will be left and delivery will be attempted on the next working day.

If you need us to deliver on a specific date please call the Bettys team on +44 (0)1423 814008; please note that there will be additional charge if you'd like us to deliver on a specific date.

We’re unable to guarantee delivery dates for Royal Mail and Airmail services. If your package is being delivered via First Class or Airmail then we aim to dispatch during the week that you've selected at the checkout, but we are unable to guarantee delivery dates as these delivery methods are not time guaranteed services.
