Dishpatch Membership

Listed on this page are the terms and conditions applicable to your subscription to our membership services (each a “Membership” and collectively, the “Memberships”) and usage of Member Credits (”Credits”), discounted Member Shipping (”Member Shipping”) and other perks and benefits included with your membership.

Membership terms

Dishpatch gives you a choice: you can buy our restaurant-quality meals at competitive prices without needing to purchase a Membership, or you can opt for one of our available Memberships and buy our Products at a significant discount using Credits included with our Memberships, and receive Member Shipping on all Products, subject to these Terms and Conditions and any applicable Specific Membership Terms (as defined below).

How do your memberships work?

If you opt for a Membership option, here's how it works:

  • Memberships can be purchased on the Website. From that purchase forward, you (or the lucky recipient if you've bought it as a gift) will become a Dishpatch member (a “Member”).

  • As a Member, you can buy Dishpatch Products from the Website at the discounted price shown with Member Credit applied, using one of the Member Credits provided with your Membership,

  • Member credits can be applied only to food products with a standard retail price of £40 or higher

  • you will also receive discounted Member Shipping on all Products,

  • you are also entitled to other perks and benefits included in your Membership (see below),

  • subject to any specific terms or restrictions that may apply to your Membership type (the “Specific Membership Terms”).

Types of membership

While our primary Membership model is an annual Membership (the “Annual Membership”), we may, in our discretion, also offer certain other Membership types. You will be notified of specific Membership Terms that may apply to your Membership when you register for such Membership.

AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS: Memberships may be subject to a minimum term, and Memberships will renew automatically upon expiration of the applicable Membership term for additional terms of the same length unless cancelled by you. For further information on how to cancel, please see below.

TRIAL MEMBERSHIP (promotional) – we may from time to time provide promotional trial Memberships. Eligibility is determined by Dishpatch in its sole discretion and may be limited to prevent abuse. We reserve the right to revoke a promotional trial Membership in the event that we determine you are not eligible, or otherwise in accordance with these Membership Terms. The recipient will be informed of its expiry date and any automatic renewal terms in advance.

From time to time, we may offer different Memberships, and the fees and Specific Membership Terms for such Memberships may vary. We sometimes offer other promotional memberships, which are subject to these Terms and Conditions except as otherwise stated in the applicable Membership Terms. Dishpatch may at its discretion make goodwill offers as part of its promotional campaigns, including limited increases to the quantity or value of Vouchers or promotional discounts from time to time.

Membership fee

The Dishpatch Membership requires an annual Membership Fee (”Membership Fee”), the amount of which is subject to change at our discretion.

Any changes to the Membership Fee will be communicated to you in advance of the renewal date, and if you choose to continue with your Membership, you agree to pay the updated Membership Fee.

Any changes to the Membership Fee will apply only from the Membership purchase or renewal date and no changes will be applied retroactively to users who have already purchased a Membership.

Member Credits

As a Dishpatch member, you will receive a defined number of Member Credits of a fixed value that can be redeemed against orders for Products on our website ("Member Credits").

On the Website, we show Products available at the full price, and the price with Member Credit applied. In order to claim this discount, you need to purchase a Membership and then apply the discount code for one of your Member Credits at checkout. You can only apply one Member Credit per order. Member Credits cannot be used in combination with any other discount. Once you have used up all your Member Credits, you will need to purchase Products at the full price, or purchase a new Membership.

The quantity and value of Credits offered with Membership are subject to change at our discretion. Any changes to the quantity and value of Credits will apply only from the Membership purchase or renewal date and no changes will be applied retroactively to users who are already within the term of their annual membership. We will inform you of any changes before you renew your membership.

You have the option to gift your Credits to other users with our permission. Please contact hello@dishpatch.co.uk to arrange this.

Otherwise, Credits are non-transferable.

Credits expire within 12 months from the date of your membership purchase. Expired Credits will no longer be valid and cannot be redeemed or extended.

When using a Credit, you agree to abide by our standard discount terms, which state that only one Credit can be used per order, and not in combination with any other discounts, vouchers or promotions.

Member shipping

As a Dishpatch member, you are entitled to free standard shipping on all Products. Standard shipping refers to Products not delivered on a Saturday and without special delivery options (e.g. pre-12).

Members receive discounted shipping for Products delivered on Saturday and with special delivery options (e.g. pre-12).

Dishpatch reserves the right to change the shipping options available to both members and non-members, and the charges therein, at any time at our discretion.

In the event that Dishpatch increases shipping charges to Members, you will have the right to cancel your Membership and be refunded the Membership Fee less the reasonable cost of providing the Membership to you, which is calculated as the non-discounted price plus non-member shipping charge of the Products you ordered during the term of the Membership, minus the price (including any Member Shipping charge) you paid for them. In this event, you will lose access to all remaining Credits, Member Shipping, membership perks and and benefits with immediate effect.

Other membership perks and benefits

Dishpatch may provide additional perks and benefits to its members, which are subject to change at any time during the membership term and at our sole discretion. The specific perks and benefits applicable to your membership will be outlined on the Website. We will contact you in the event of any changes to the perks and benefits during the term of your Membership.

Cancellations and refunds

You may cancel a newly-purchased membership at any time within 14 days of the Membership purchase date. If you have not yet placed any orders for Products using your Membership, you will be refunded the full Membership Fee. If you have placed orders for Products using your Membership, we reserve the right to deduct from your refund the reasonable cost of providing the Membership to you, which is calculated as the non-discounted price plus non-member shipping charge of the Products you ordered, minus the price (including any Member Shipping charge) you paid for them. Cancelling a newly-purchased Membership and receiving a refund removes access to all remaining Credits, Member Shipping, membership perks and and benefits with immediate effect.

From 14 days of the Membership purchase date, annual Membership can be cancelled by you at any time and will take effect at the end of your current Membership term once your notice to terminate has been given. You do not need to give a reason. When cancelling an annual membership after the first 14 days from purchase, you retain access to all remaining Credits, Member Shipping, membership perks and and benefits until the end of the annual Membership term.

Additionally, you can also cancel a renewed annual Membership within 14 days of your renewal date and the full fee for the renewed year will be refunded to you. Simply contact hello@dishpatch.co.uk.

Dishpatch reserves the right to terminate or suspend your membership and access to the services at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to a violation of these Terms or any applicable laws.

OTHER RESTRICTIONS

All Memberships are intended to be used for reasonable, personal use, and we reserve the right to refuse any Product order that we determine to be excessive or that exceeds reasonable expectations for personal use under any Membership type. Regardless of Membership type, certain Products may be subject to limits on the number of units that may be purchased by a Member in either one order or during a specific period of time. In addition, all Product orders are subject to availability. If we refuse your Product order or the Products are not available in the quantities ordered, we will not process your order and will inform you of this in writing (which may include email). If you have already paid for the Product(s) ordered, we will refund you in full as soon as reasonably possible.

Memberships may not be shared or used by more than one person to order Products under the same Membership, and any access credentials (such as a username or password) may not be disclosed to or used by another person other than you.

Memberships cannot be purchased using a gift card to pay the membership fee.

GIFT MEMBERSHIP

You can purchase a Gift Membership on the Dishpatch gifting page.

Gifted memberships are non-refundable and exchangeable. The gift recipient may cancel their Gift Membership at any time; however, they will still receive access for the full Gift Membership period, subject to these Terms and Conditions.

REJOINING FOLLOWING CANCELLATION

If you wish to purchase a new Membership following cancellation, this is at our sole discretion. Please be aware that unless otherwise agreed, your Membership type may no longer be offered.

CHANGES TO YOUR MEMBERSHIP TERMS

Where we need to change your terms of Membership or the Specific Membership Terms, we shall notify you by email. If such changes are material, we shall give you the option to cancel your Membership and receive a pro-rota refund for the time remaining on your Membership.

Free Trial

Dishpatch reserves the right to offer a Free Trial of Membership to certain customers at certain times, at our discretion. The following terms apply to the Free Trial:

  • Members will provide their payment details at the time of signing up to the Membership, which will be automatically charged the Membership Fee after 10 days from the date of signup, unless cancelled.

  • During the Free Trial period you will be entitled to redeem a fixed number of Member Credits, which will be communicated to you at time of purchase.

  • On expiry of the Free Trial period and payment of the Membership Fee, you will unlock the remaining Credits to which you are entitled with your Membership, which will be communicated to you at time of purchase.

  • To cancel your Membership before the Free Trial period is up, and avoid being charged the Membership Fee, you must email

    hello@dishpatch.co.uk with at least 48 hours notice of your wish to cancel.

  • Once the Free Trial period is over and you have been charged the Membership Fee, you have a 14-day cooling-off period in which to notify us of your wish to cancel, and be refunded the Membership Fee. In the case that you have used the additional Member Credits unlocked after your Free Trial period, we reserve the right to deduct from your refund the reasonable cost of providing the Membership to you, which is calculated as the non-discounted price plus non-member shipping charge of the Products you ordered, minus the price (including any Member Shipping charge) you paid for them.

  • Cancelling removes access to all remaining Credits, Member Shipping, membership perks and and benefits with immediate effect.

  • Each user is entitled to only one Free Trial. Cancelling and signing up again will be considered an abuse of these terms. In this case we reserve the right to cancel your membership at our discretion and you will not be entitled to any refund.

  • If you cancel during the Free Trial period, any unused Credits will be void.
