Terms and Condition
This Agreement was last revised on November 15th, 2022.
This Customer Agreement is between you and Gourmet Egypt that states the terms and conditions under which you may use our website, our mobile application (the Site and App are collectively, the "Platform") and receive Gourmet Egypt services, which includes processing and delivery (or arranging for delivery) of product orders. Your use of the Gourmet Egypt Service and the Platform constitutes your agreement to the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not agree with all the terms and conditions, please refrain from further use of the Platform.
All of our products and services are backed by a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. If you are dissatisfied for any reason, contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on our hotline 19339 from within Egypt. For fresh and frozen grocery or perishable products, you have up to fourteen (14) days after delivery, or until the expiration date printed on the product — whichever is earlier — to contact us about the products. Gourmet Egypt may require the return or collection of the product with which you are dissatisfied before we substitute an acceptable item or issue store credits.
Ordering through the Platform
Orders must be received before posted cut-off times for a given delivery (see Delivery of Products below for details). Available delivery date and time windows and associated delivery fees and promotions will be shown during the ordering process. Delivery timeslots are available on a first-come-first-served basis. You will be able to view delivery and cut-off times during the checkout process. Note that modified orders are subject to price changes and a change of delivery date may not guarantee the availability of your desired items.
You may cancel orders by contacting our Customer Service Department on our hotline 19339 during working hours or email us at email@example.com Customer Service working hours are 9am- 10pm daily.
Price, Availability and Substitutions
We receive fresh products every day to assure you the highest quality. Due the perishable nature of our products, certain products may be unavailable due to market conditions beyond our control or quality that is below our standards. If we have an item that's very similar to the item you ordered, we reserve the right to make item substitutions. If you're not happy with the substitution, please contact our customer service department. If we are unable to fulfil your entire order with the items you order or appropriate substitutions, we will use reasonable efforts to contact you prior to delivery using you specified contact details. This may be by phone, email or SMS. Once you complete checkout, your price, or price per gram/kilogram (when applicable), is guaranteed unless you placed an order for an item where we have inadvertently listed an incorrect price. In those circumstances, we reserve the right to cancel undelivered orders for such incorrectly priced products; we will contact you immediately in such circumstances, and, of course, your payment method will not be charged.
Please note: we reserve the right to limit your order or the quantity of a particular product that you may order.
All online vouchers are for one-time use only and are not applicable for multiple usages.
Note: Voucher amount cannot be refunded as cash.
A delivery fee may be added to your order. Any such fee is not a gratuity for the delivery personnel who delivers or is otherwise involved with the delivery of your order and will not be given to any such delivery personnel as a gratuity.
If you wish to tip delivery personnel, please provide a cash tip at the time your order is delivered. Gourmet Egypt will not be responsible for handling any gratuity on our Platform.
Variable Weight Orders
Because many perishable items are individually prepared for you, the per-item price you see in your shopping cart for variable weight items is based on an estimated weight. The final price of these variable weight items will be based on the same price per gram/kilogram indicated at time of checkout, and we will do our best to ensure it is as accurate to the listed price as possible. The actual price charged is determined once we have prepared and weighed your order, and that actual price will appear on the invoice issued to you on the day of your delivery. Any money owed to you by Gourmet Egypt due to variance in weighted items will be refunded as store credit. This will be visible to you in “My Account” within 24 hours from placing your order.
Cancellation of orders must be made before the order is processed by the physical store. You can check the status of your order by selecting “My Order” from the drop-down menu of “My Account” tab. If the payment is made online and the order has been processed it will result in a restocking fee equal to the sum of 100% of the total EGP amount of your weighted items (since many of our perishable items are individually prepared)
Gourmet pay is an e-wallet that is charged using a debit/credit card & can be used for both online and offline orders. Gourmet credits are non-transferable and do not expire. In the case of order cancellation, the money is returned to your Gourmet Pay wallet.
Gourmet Loyalty is a point collection program that can be gathered with both in store and online purchases. Points are valid for 365 days from the day acquired & can only be redeemed online in one of three ways:
1. Gourmet credit: Each point amounts for 1EGP once acquired and can be redeemed as Gourmet credit to pay for online orders
2. Gourmet Rewards: Choose from our selection of Gourmet Kits and add your choice to cart to checkout with your orders. Disclaimer: Kits are non-refundable and cannot be returned.
3. Third-Party Vouchers: Choose a voucher from our list of partners. Disclaimer: No cancelation.
Credit/Debit Card Payment
To place an order, you must have a credit card or debit card ("Card") Gourmet Egypt does not hold or store any of your card details. When paying online, you will be redirected to an authorization page or payment gateway managed by your bank. You may also be redirected to a verification page if you are using a Visa or a MasterCard.
Card Authorization and Estimated Costs
Your Card will be charged for your order on the day your order is delivered. Since certain perishables are priced by variable weight and the actual price is not known until we have prepared and weighed your order, we require a Card authorization for up to 110% of the estimated cost of perishables, but only charge you the actual cost that is determined after preparing and weighing your actual items. In addition, we will authorize your Card for an amount equal to 100% of the total of the non-perishable items in your order. Gourmet Egypt will not process an order that attempts to use an incorrect, expired, or over-the-credit limit Card. We will make reasonable efforts to contact you if this occurs. However, in the event such an order is processed, Gourmet Egypt reserves the right to collect funds for any uncollected transaction charges or fees owed to it. If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due, including but not limited to rejected electronic payments, redelivery fees or restocking fees, Gourmet Egypt may suspend or terminate your access to the Platform & Service. You shall be responsible and liable for any fees, including attorneys' fees and collection costs, that Gourmet Egypt may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you. Your right to use the Gourmet Egypt Service is subject to limits established by us and/or by your Card issuer. Gourmet Egypt reserves the right to remove the online payment option from any account for any reason at any time.
Delivery of Products
Gourmet Egypt uses refrigerated trucks with freezer compartments and motorcycles with temperature proof pouches to maintain the quality and integrity of your products. To maintain the integrity of products after delivery, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate or freeze perishable items. Frozen items must immediately be placed in a freezer. In an effort to meet the committed delivery times for all of our customers, our delivery personnel cannot wait for an inspection of the items delivered.
To receive delivery, you must live in a residential apartment or home and you or an authorized representative must be present to receive your order from our delivery personnel during your selected delivery window. The authorized representative can accept your goods when you are not present at the time you had selected for delivery and shall accept the goods under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself. Anyone at the delivery address who receives the delivery is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. If you, your doorman, and your authorized representative are not present during your selected delivery window, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact you and reschedule delivery for the same day. In such case, if we are unable to redeliver the order to you for any reason, the order will be cancelled.
You will receive an email invoice the day of your delivery and a physical invoice at delivery. All of your order invoices are available in the "My Account" section of our Platform. If something is missing from your order, please contact our Customer Service department.
Inclement Weather and Unforeseen Delivery Complications
In the case of inclement weather or unforeseen delivery complications, it may be necessary to make adjustments to our delivery schedule which will cause us to suspend chosen delivery dates and times. If there will be a significant delay in delivering your order, a customer service representative may call or e-mail you to let you know the status of your delivery time. We will attempt to deliver your order as quickly as possible when the conditions permit. We will never deliver an order past 10:30 PM without your consent. If your designated delivery location (e.g. street closure) or day is inaccessible, rendering us unable to make the delivery, we will contact you to determine the best alternate location and/or date to make the delivery.
Gourmet Egypt delivery personnel are allowed to accept tips. Customers are under no obligation to tip delivery personnel but have the option of doing so if exceptional service is provided by the delivery personnel.
