What address should I send my item to?
When entering your shipping details you can either select a business address or your personal residence.
By proceeding with your order, you are agreeing that your parcel will have an automatic authority to leave ‘at the doorstep’ if your premises are unattended. If you would prefer, you can select a ‘carded parcel’. Whereby if no one is home Australia Post will leave a card to let you know where you can collect your parcel.

How fresh can I expect my cookies to be?
Most of our cookies get eaten pretty quickly. However, we are actually one of few cookie manufacturers that boast a long and healthy shelf life ranging from 3-9 months. When purchasing from our online store you can expect to receive product with a minimum 3 month shelf life. If this is not the case with your order, please contact us info@charliescookies.com.au.

Christmas is a busy time, how are deliveries affected?
Charlie’s Cookies value all our loyal customers and at this time of year we strive to deliver the quality of service we offer throughout the year, however due to the busy Christmas period we cannot guarantee all orders placed after 1st December will be received before Christmas Day. This is partly due to expected delays with Australia Post and other freight carriers over the holiday period.

Please be patient with us and we will try our best to get orders dispatched as soon as we can. Please note that we cannot offer any refunds for orders delivered after Christmas Day.
