Though we ship most our products internationally,
HotDishes has instituted a policy for the security
and safety of all our international customers. In order
to verify the billing information, including address,
payment method, etc., all international customers must
fax us a copy of the front and back of their credit
card, as well as a copy of their credit card statement.
This should clearly show their billing address, which
should match the address their items are being shipped
to. HotDishes will keep this information on file
for our customers' protection, so that no items can
be billed to the customer's card without their knowledge.
Please direct all faxes to 408-239-4800.
Though we ship most our products internationally, not
all products are available in all countries, and shipping
rates to those countries will vary. Please check the
final receipt to verify your shipping charges before
you approve your order. International customers are
responsible for any customs or duty fees levied by their
country. We have no control over these charges and cannot
predict where they will occur, as policies vary greatly
from nation to nation. If any packages are returned
back to HotDishes due to insufficient or wrong address
or unclaimed, customers are subject to pay a 25% restocking
fee on the merchandise. In the event of a reshipment
of the same order, customers will be responsible to
pay shipping charges for the reshipment.
Customers originating from Reunion, Mauritius &
Canada may be subject to pay extra shipping charges
in addition to the charges you may agree to pay while
finalizing the order, depending upon the shipping schedules
of UPS Worldwide Express. Some locations in Canada may
be subject to a minimum of $20 surcharge if shipping
method chosen is UPS Worldwide Express.

We are proud to offer such shipping values
to our customers, especially when paired with our fast
delivery times. In most cases, your order will be processed
within 48 hours of your placing it. You can expect to
receive your order, on average, within 7 -15 business
days of processing the order. Shipping times may vary
depending on delivery address, delays in payment collection,
or product unavailability. Often, products will be shipped
separately from one another for added safety in transit,
so you may receive more than one delivery to your address.

may take additional time and incur additional handling
charges to ensure their safe delivery. We care that
you receive your items in exceptional condition.

on our site are sent separately. For instance if you

exception to this is that all Entertainment items ARE
sent together. In other words, your DVDs and Audio CDs
from the same order will be sent in one shipment. Tracking
numbers for orders shipped via UPS take 24 business
hours to become active and for orders shipped via regular
mail tracking numbers become active between 3-4 business
Please note that the packages sent by USPS regular mail
takes anywhere between 7-15 business days to deliver.
Though USPS priority promises delivery within 2 business
days, there are times it might take more than 15-20
business days to deliver. In these cases, customers
are informed to wait for 1 month from the date of shipment
as there are chances that the packages might get delivered
within this period. In case the packages do not reach
even after 1 month of processing, customers are requested
to send in an email to email@example.com
informing the non-receipt of the parcels. This will
enable HotDishes to pursue this with it's third party
insurance company. Once the claim is accepted by the
insurance company, HotDishes will immediately reprocess
