WHICH PRODUCTS CAN I GET THE PROTEIN PACKAGE PICK AND MIX DISCOUNT ON?

All products on the website can be added to your basket. Individual items can obtain a Protein Package pick and mix discount, you can view all the included items here.

 

You can add multiple quantities of the same item to receive the discount, keep in mind that your unique discount will be applied at the cart and checkout.

 

Don't have time to mix and match? Full boxes of the same product are already pre-discounted - you can not get the additional pick and mix discount on top.

CAN I BUY ONE OR TWO PRODUCTS INSTEAD OF BUILDING A PROTEIN PACKAGE?

Yes, sure you can! You just won't get the Protein Package pick and mix discount.

WHERE DO YOU GET PRODUCT INGREDIENTS AND NUTRITIONAL VALUES FROM?

We source all our data directly from the manufacturer or the allocated distributor. We try our best to keep all information up to date, however, we are not responsible for any incorrect information provided on ingredients, allergens and nutritional values - this is due to regular product updates and changes.

 

We advise you seek information from the manufacturer if you suffer from any allergies and always check the packaging information before consumption.

 

If you have any dietary requirements, you can use the filter menu to narrow results accordingly to suit your needs.

HOW DO I APPLY MY DISCOUNT?

If you're ordering a pick and mix, your discount should automatically apply at the cart and checkout once you've met the criteria. If your discount is not applying, please try refreshing the page, if that doesn't work, please message us via live chat so we can provide you with a manual code.

 

If you're purchasing full boxes, these products are already discounted.

 

If you have a different discount code, you can apply this by

 

  • Add the item(s) to your basket.
  • Proceed to the checkout and enter your code in the discount box.
  • Hit “apply” to claim the discount.

 

Please note: You can only use one discount code per order. You can't stack discounts on top of Protein Package discounts.

 

Some offers such as our "first freebie" deal require you to follow a different process to claim it, please follow those instructions instead of the ones above.

WHO ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR?

They're for anyone who wants to eat healthier snacks, make better diet choices, increase daily intake of protein, reduce sugars or just because they taste great! Please remember that our products shouldn't be used to replace whole foods and are mostly nutritional supplements and healthy snacks.

 

We always recommend talking to your GP, doctor or nutritionist before starting any new diet or lifestyle change.

 

If you'd like to get some general advice, please make use of our free talk to an expert service where you can chat to one of our friendly team members to get tailored advice and product recommendations.

WHEN DO YOU HAVE PRODUCT RESTOCKS?

We're really sorry if the product you want is currently not available, we try our very best to keep all products in stock but sometimes this just isn't possible.

 

We don't have set restock dates or times, if there is a product you really want and is currently sold out, we advise signing up to receive back in stock notifications so you get to know before anyone else.

 

To do this, head to the product you want, scroll down to the "GET A RESTOCK NOTIFICATION" button and click it. Enter your email address and submit the form, you will then get a confirmation message letting you know that you'll get an email when it's back in stock.

 

If the product has multiple flavours or variants, you may need to use the dropdown menu to pick the specific one you'd like a notification for.

WHERE CAN I SEE ALL THE BRANDS YOU STOCK?

We stock hundreds of unique brands from around the world, you see our full list, please view our brands page.

 

If you're on a collection, you can also use our filter menu to select the specific brands you like.

CAN I HAVE ITEMS SENT TO SOMEONE AS A GIFT?

How kind! When it comes to gifting, we have loads of options for you to explore.

 

If you know what they like and wish to place an order, you can chose to have it delivered directly to them by changing the shipping address, we also gift wrap pick and mix orders to add that special touch.

 

If you'd like the order sheet (that shows the prices you paid) removed from the parcel, just let us know by requesting that in the "special instructions" section on the cart page.

 

If you're unsure about the products the person you're ordering for likes, why not get them a gift card?

 

Orders under ten items are not gift wrapped free of charge, please contact us if you want to add gift wrap to a Protein Package under ten items.

HOW CAN I SEARCH FOR ITEMS ON THE WEBSITE?

We have a store-wide search where you can easily look for a specific product or item.

 

On a desktop or computer, click the magnifying glass in the top right corner of your screen and enter your search query.

 

On a mobile or tablet, click the menu button in the top left, once the menu opens, click the word "SEARCH" in the top left of the mobile menu and enter your query (on some devices you may have to press the search bar to pull up your keyboard).

WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?

At Protein Package we accept all popular payment types including VISA, Mastercard, American Express, PayPal, Maestro and Klarna Pay Later.

 

We also offer express checkouts that speed up the ordering process by saving your details such as Google Pay, Apple Pay, Shop Pay and PayPal Express.

 

Credit and debit card payments are subject to validation and authorisation. To better protect our customers when making online payments you may be presented with 3D Secure when paying. This is dependent on your bank and may require you to enter a password, confirm it's you placing the order or enter a security code sent via a text message, email or phone call.

 

If your payment gets declined, check your text messages or emails as you may need to respond to your bank before it lets you proceed with payment.

Protein Package gift cards don't have a set expiry date.

DO YOU OFFER STUDENT OR NHS DISCOUNTS?

Get more information on the Protein Package discount system where you can get up to 15% off your whole order.

HOW DOES PAY LATER WITH KLARNA WORK?

We have a dedicated page that specifically covers all the details you'll ever need about Klarna Pay Later.

HOW MUCH IS DELIVERY AND HOW FAST IS IT?

We offer both standard and express delivery options which can arrive in just one working day.

 

All shipping information including prices can be found on our new and updated delivery page.

 

Fast delivery to UK addresses is available from just £2.99.

 

Because we ship fragile food items, all products require high-quality protective packaging, this is the reason we are unable to offer free delivery like some clothing companies do for example.

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

Yeah, we sure do ship internationally! You can view our most popular destination rates at the bottom of our delivery page. The record distance travelled by a Protein Package is 16,500km to Melbourne, Australia. Can you beat it?

 

If no shipping methods are available for your location at the checkout, please contact us to arrange it as you may need a bespoke shipping quote.

 

Please note that not all international shipping services are fully tracked, some will only track once they've passed customs and are in the destination country.

 

When ordering internationally, make sure you have fully read our shipping policy as much of the liability is passed on to you as the buyer due to customs. We hate to fall back on our terms and conditions so please ensure you understand them before placing an order.

HOW CAN I TRACK MY ORDER?

Once we've generated your shipping label, you'll receive an email or text message with a tracking link to view the status of your parcel with the courier.

 

You can also get delivery information directly from the order confirmation page or your Protein Package account after signing in (if you checked out as a guest, you will not be able to log in to your account as you didn't create one). If you would like to activate an account, please get in touch and we can send you an account invitation.

 

If your tracking hasn't been updated yet or is blank, it can take a little while for it to load on the system.

 

Your order might be coming in multiple parcels due (especially if it's a larger order), if that's the case, you will have been sent more than one tracking email or text. Due to the nature of the courier network, your parcels may get separated in transit and arrive at different times and with different delivery drivers.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO DISPATCH ORDERS?

We always aim to dispatch orders on the same day, sometimes it can take us a little longer if we're extremely busy.

 

On international shipments, it does take us longer to dispatch orders as we have to manually fill in customs details.

CAN I HAVE MY ORDER DELIVERED TO A BFPO ADDRESS?

Yes, we ship to all British Forces Postal Office (BFPO) addresses that are listed on the UK government website. Orders are shipped via Royal Mail's standard BFPO service.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I'M NOT IN WHEN MY ORDER ARRIVES?

Ideally, someone needs to be in when your parcel is due to be delivered as we may require a signature. We understand that this isn't always possible so our delivery partner will usually try to deliver three times on three different days.

 

Please note that couriers now can automatically deliver parcels to a neighbour or leave it in a safe place at your address. This is classed as a successfully delivered parcel. If you don’t want your parcel left in a safe place or with a neighbour, please ensure you notify us by leaving special instructions on the cart page before ordering.

 

If you have already placed your order, you can update your delivery preferences in-flight with the courier on the tracking page - you may need to enter your postcode to verify it is you making the adjustments.

CAN I HAVE MY ORDER DELIVERED TO MY WORK ADDRESS?

Yes, that's no problem, we reccommend selecting your place of employment if you're usually at work during the day when most couirers make deliveries. Just ensure you add any additional information such as your department as it's likely it will be delivered to the reception.

CAN I HAVE MY PARCEL REDIRECTED TO A DIFFERENT ADDRESS?

If the parcel has already been shipped, unfortunately, we have no way to change your delivery address so please ensure you enter the correct one.

 

If we haven't shipped the order yet, let us know immediately if you notice that you made a mistake. We might have a chance to change the address before it enters the courier network.

HOW DOES PROTEIN PACKAGE APPROACH PACKAGING?

We use the highest quality packaging on the market to ensure that the fragile items we ship arrive in pristine condition.

 

We use recyclable cardboard boxes and try to best limit the amount of bubble wrap and air-fill used where possible.

WHY HAS MY ORDER BEEN RETURNED TO PROTEIN PACKAGE?

If your order has been returned to Protein Package by the courier, it’s likely to be for one of the following reasons:

 

  • The parcel was refused upon the delivery attempt.
  • The courier was unable to access or safely deliver to the address after three valid attempts.
  • The delivery address was incomplete.
  • The parcel was damaged in transit.

 

We’re very sorry your order hasn’t made it to you. If you’d still like the items, we can happily arrange for the goods to be shipped back out.

WHAT COURIERS DO YOU USE?

We like to give you the choice of which courier you'd like your parcel delivered with. We currently offer the following options at the checkout (this may vary slightly based on your delivery address).

 

  • DPD
  • UPS
  • Evri (Hermes)
  • UK Mail
  • Royal Mail

If you would like to activate an account, please get in touch and we can send you an account invitation.

 

If your tracking hasn't been updated yet or is blank, it can take around 24 hours for it to load on the courier's tracking system.

 

If your estimated delivery window has passed and you think there could be a problem, please let us know so we can take a look on our end.

I'VE RECEIVED A DAMAGED OR FAULTY ITEM, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Oh no, really sorry about that! We take great care in packaging all orders to ensure safe and secure delivery. As we are shipping fragile food and drink items, they can very rarely sustain damage during transit.

 

If your item(s) have sustained damage that is below our high standards please contact us and let us know right away.

 

We kindly require two clear images of the damaged item(s) from two different angles of how the goods arrived with you. Please note that if the damaged products have already been disposed of without taking any photographic evidence, we can not assist with processing any form of compensation. It's always best to keep hold of the goods in case we need them returned.

I'VE RECEIVED AN INCORRECT ITEM IN MY ORDER, WHAT DO I DO?

Apologies that you received an item which you didn't order, please let us know by getting in touch so we can come up with an appropriate solution for you.

I'M MISSING AN ITEM FROM MY ORDER, WHAT DO I DO?

Your order might be coming in multiple parcels due (especially if it's a larger order), if that's the case, you will have been sent more than one tracking email or text. Due to the nature of the courier network, your parcels may get separated in transit and arrive at different times and with different delivery drivers.

CAN I CANCEL MY ORDER AFTER I'VE PLACED IT?

Due to the automated shipping system we use and the tight time constraints of dispatching orders, we're unable to cancel orders before they're shipped from our warehouse - please do not place an order if you intend to cancel as we have no way to stop this anymore.

 

You do have a legal right to cancel your order within 14 days of placing it online. For us to process a full refund on the goods, and to cancel your order, please notify us by emailing contact@proteinpackage.co.uk - include your full name and order reference number in the email.

 

To proceed with cancellation, request a "return to the sender" when a delivery attempt is made at your address by informing the courier - this is a free service.

 

If a successful delivery is made to you, you will need to return the goods back to us to cancel the order. Unless the goods are faulty, this return shipping cost will need to be covered by the you.

 

Shipping fees are non-refundable due to the service being automatically supplied. Refunds are issued upon the goods being back with us in a resellable condition.

WHY HAVE I RECEIVED AN EMAIL SAYING THE ITEM I'VE ORDERED IS OUT OF STOCK?

We're extremely sorry if you've received an email or text message saying one or more of the items you've ordered is out of stock.

 

When this occurs, it means we thought we had stock of the item when you placed the order. However, when we went to pack your Protein Package order, we realised we didn't have the product available anymore. This could be due to several reasons such as a website inventory bug, a delayed/damaged incoming delivery or human error.

 

We will always offer you the option of a refund, credit or similar replacement.

 

If we have tried to make contact with you without success about an out of stock item, we may ship the other items in the order without it and issue a refund. Alternatively, if we have a very similar item of the same value which we think you'll enjoy just as much we might make a swap.

I PLACED AN ORDER BUT DIDN'T GET ANY ORDER CONFIRMATION?

Our order confirmation system is automated, if you've already checked your spam folder, it's most likely that you made a spelling error when entering your details.

 

Please email us with as much detail about the order you recently placed such as the total value, the product you ordered or your full delivery address for us to locate the order and add your correct contact details. We can then resend all confirmations to your correct address.

WHAT IS YOUR RETURN AND REFUND POLICY?

I'VE PAID USING PAY LATER WITH KLARNA - HOW DO RETURNS AND REFUNDS WORK?

So as a Buy Now, Pay Later provider, Klarna's returns and refunds do work a little different based on your payment situation.

 

1. You've already paid off your order in full.

If that's the case, this will be treated like any other refund we process.

 

2. You've partially paid off your order.

You will get a refund for the balance paid and the rest of the unpaid balance will be removed from the statement system and no longer be due.

 

3. You've not paid off any of the order yet.

If you've not paid anything yet then your statement will be updated so no payment is due.

 

If you have any issues with your Klarna statement or refund, please get in touch with them directly for assistance.

I HAVEN'T RECEIVED MY REFUND, IT'S NOT SHOWING IN MY BANK ACCOUNT?

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again to see if you have any pending payments.


Then contact your bank or financial institution, it may take up to ten working days before your refund is officially posted into your account.

 

If you’ve done all of this and waited ten days but still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at contact@proteinpackage.co.uk.
