When selecting your preferred delivery date, please note that all dates are estimated only. While we do everything possible to deliver your gift on your preferred day, we are not in a position to 100% guarantee any delivery date entered, and state that all delivery dates are estimated. All estimated delivery dates are provided by our courier and sent in accordance to their recommendation to have your gift delivered as close to your preferred day as possible.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Choosing Express Delivery at $17.95 guarantees that your order will leave our warehouse the same day when placed on a business day, before 4pm AEST or the next business day if placed after 4pm AEST Monday - Friday. Our Standard Delivery at $14.95 will leave our warehouse in 1-2 Business days. Orders over $150 receive free standard shipping.

Once your package is dispatched from our warehouse we estimate next business day delivery to most places in Australia. Please be aware that, as we use third party couriers, we cannot guarantee next day delivery on any order. While we aim to get your gift delivered on your preferred date, we dispatch on the advise of our freight provider. 

Where the address is located in a rural area, delivery of your gift may take an extra day or two.

Please note products labelled with "Special Order" will require up to two business days for this product to be available for your gift.

Same Day Delivery

This service is available to selected Melbourne Metro areas only and incurs a delivery fee of $19.95. Orders for this service must be placed by 10.00a.m. AEST Monday-Friday.

Early and/or Late Deliveries

While we endeavour to deliver your gift on your preferred day, please note that all delivery dates are estimated. There may be times when your order may arrive early - StarTrack may have exceeded their service in this instance, and delays may also occur. These occurrences are few, and we do sincerely apologise if this happens and understand it is not an ideal transaction.

Please note that we do not offer refunds, store credit or compensation on orders that arrive within four business days of the preferred delivery date selected. All other compensations are processed on a case-by-case basis.


If your order needs to be re-directed to a different address than the one provided, a fee of $19.95 ($9.95 for Melbourne Metro) applies. Delays of re-delivery of 24-48 hours are to be expected in these circumstances.

Undeliverable Packages

Gifts may be returned to us if the courier is not able to deliver your order, or the order isn't retrieved from the Post Office. If your gift is returned to us we will contact you, the sender to organise alternate delivery options. Please note that redelivery costs apply. If we are unable to make contact with you, and receive no instruction from you within 10 days, your order will be cancelled, and no refund applies. 

Authority To Leave

At Tastebuds, we encourage Contactless Delivery. If the recipient is not home or at the delivery address upon delivery, where appropriate, our courier provider will leave the package at the delivery address and provide proof of delivery. Packages will not be left if the courier driver doesn’t deem it a safe place to leave the package. If this occurs, you may receive notification that your package has been dropped off at your local Post Office for collection. If re-delivery is required, please note that a re-delivery fee may apply.

Christmas Deliveries

While we aim to deliver the same quality of service we offer throughout the year, during this particularly busy time of year we cannot guarantee all orders placed within a week of 25th December be received before Christmas. This is partly due to expected delays with freight movements across Australia over the holiday period. Orders placed between 22nd December and 8th January will be processed on the next business day.

How much does it cost for shipping?

Tastebuds offer FREE delivery Monday to Friday Australia wide on orders over $150, or a flat rate of $14.95 for orders under $150.

What time will my gift arrive?

Deliveries will arrive at business addresses by 5.00pm and residential addresses by 7.00pm. Unfortunately, we cannot specify an exact time of day for delivery on our Courier services. We would hate to make you a promise only for a delayed Courier service to break it!

What if the wrong address is supplied for delivery?

Ensuring that the full and correct street address is provided for delivery is your responsibility, including any business names, tower numbers and hospital wards, secret handshakes where applicable. If your bouquet is delivered to the wrong address due to incorrect or insufficient details being supplied, an additional delivery charge will apply to redirect/redeliver the gift and may also cause delay in delivery. And no one wants that, so please triple check before placing your order!

What is the cut off time for Next Day Delivery?

If you would like your gift to arrive the following day, make sure you place your order before 4PM AEST Monday - Friday. Your order will be shipped out the same day for estimated delivery on the next business day, unless the address is down a winding path at the end of an un-named road miles from the nearest milk bar (delivery to whimsical/non-city areas can take an extra day or two – contact us if you’re unsure).

Do you offer discount rates for bulk orders?

Yes we do! Email to discuss your individual needs. Minimum order quantities apply.

Can I book a delivery for Same Day?

Sure can! However delivery is limited to the Inner Suburbs of Melbourne with a deadline of 10.00am AEST Monday - Friday. and a fee of $19.95. Give us a call on 1300 733 968 to check.

Do you deliver on the weekends?

And on weekends, we rest. Unless you're in our Melbourne Metro area. 

What if my recipient is not at home?

We recommend checking that someone be available at the business or home address of your recipient to accept the delivery, mainly so they can feel the glee of receiving a gift fresh off the truck. If no one is home, our Courier will leave the parcel at the premises but only if they think it safe to do so. If it's 400 degrees, the address is not somewhere where a curious passer-by might swipe your goodies and there’s no over enthusiastic dog around, the gift may be taken back to the Courier depot and a calling card left at the premises for your recipient to arrange redelivery or pick up. This may incur a fee.

Do you deliver overseas?

Unfortunately, we do not currently deliver overseas.
