Wholesale Customers Terms and Conditions can be found below under the title  - Wholesale Customers Terms and Conditions


These Terms and Conditions apply to all transactions on this site and are for internet customers. Please read them carefully. They do not affect your statutory rights.

We may change these terms and conditions at any time. Any changes will take effect on the date they are posted onto the site (see date above).

Our Contract

You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until you click the Submit Order button.

After you submit an order we will give you an Order Reference Number and details of the products you have ordered. We will send the same details to you in a confirmation e-mail. Please note that this e-mail is an acknowledgement, not acceptance of your order.

When deciding whether or not to accept your order we may use certain information about you, including any received from credit reference agency checks with Experian Limited or other agencies. In particular, we may pass your details to Experian for them to check against certain public and private databases. Experian may keep a record to use in future security checks. This helps to protect you and us against fraudulent transactions.

We will tell you if your payment details cannot be authorised for any reason and may invite you to pay by another method.

Prices and Payment

All prices and charges on this site are in UK pounds. They include any VAT payable (most coffee products are currently excluded from UK VAT), but exclude delivery charges, if applicable unless Free Shipping is offered.

The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order plus the applicable delivery charge (unless free shipping is offered). All these will be set out clearly in your Shopping Basket before you submit your order.

Prices, offers and products are subject to availability and may change before (but not after) we accept your order. If something becomes unavailable we may offer you an alternative.

Customer Voucher Code Offers ("Voucher Codes")

Where you use a valid promotional code we have issued in conjunction with your purchase, the following additional terms and conditions apply:

Voucher Codes will only be available on order values over the amount stated in the offer. - Voucher Codes are only valid until the date published. - Voucher Codes are ONLY redeemable for purchases made on this website (electriccoffee.co.uk) - Only one Voucher Code may be used per customer per transaction. - We reserve the right to end any Voucher Codes at any time including prior to the advertised end date without notice.

IMPORTANT: We try very hard to ensure that all information on this site is accurate. However, occasionally, an error can occur. If we discover an error in the price or description of a product you have ordered, we may cancel your order at any time up to the point we send the product(s) to you. We will contact you where we become aware of an error and ask you whether you wish to continue with your order at the correct price or cancel it. If we do cancel your order you will receive a full refund of any charges paid in advance.

We accept payment by Mastercard, Visa, Paypal and Worldpay which is deducted when we process your order.

Where We Deliver

Delivery must be to an address in the United Kingdom. Smaller orders will be sent via Royal Mail; larger orders may be sent by courier and will require a signature. Please make sure you keep the receipts which will accompany your order.

Delivery Charges

We make every effort to keep our delivery charges as low as possible. Whenever applicable, the total cost and details of delivery charges will be explained in full at the basket page. The above is not applicable where free shipping is offered.

IMPORTANT: We do everything we can to meet the delivery times specified. However, occasionally delivery times may be affected by factors beyond our control (e.g. problems obtaining authorisation for your payment or failures with the delivery Company) and therefore they cannot be guaranteed. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay.

Missing, Damaged or Incorrect Orders

We try very hard to ensure that you receive your order in pristine condition. If you do not receive all your products or in the unlikely event that a product arrives damaged, please contact us via the email address within the 'contact us' section of the website.
