We are unable to offer free or discounted P&P for customers outside of the UK.

I’ve paid for multiple orders and paid multiple postage costs. Will my orders be sent together?

We will always combine your parcels wherever possible. You don’t have to worry about postage for your Chalmers Gems India Live Baskets as all orders are eligible for Free UK P&P. Just use the code indiapp at checkout. This coupon is only valid from Sunday 13th March to midday Monday 21st March.

Items I have already checked out are still showing in my basket. What should I do?

When you check out, the basket automatically clears down and will not reinstate itself. The only way it will reinstate is if the link in the order notification email is clicked again – even after paying.

What to do:

  1. Consider if you have opened the link in a browser window and have not immediately paid. Then you maybe went back via the link in the email (on another window or device) to pay it.
  2. When you click on the second-order email link, it may have directed you to the original browser window where you left an unpaid basket. Your original products would still be ‘live/available’ as this browser window does not know you have paid elsewhere (It may state if the products are out of stock).
  3. This multi-browser window issue can apply to a single browser on one device or across devices; for example, the customer could open Link 1 on their iPhone or iPad, load the basket and not pay at that point – this creates an ‘incomplete’ basket.
    Then you use your laptop later, clicking the link again, load the basket and pay. The basket will still be ‘live’ on the iPhone or iPad as incomplete. Then you click on Link 2 on your iPhone – it will add to the existing ‘incomplete’ basket, therefore, creating the scenario you are seeing.

Sadly, this is controlled by how the user uses their devices therefore Chalmers Gems have no control over this issue.

We would recommend that the baskets are paid for on one device, or simply close down all browser windows that are open with Chalmers Gems and start afresh, clicking the link in the email. This may be easier for you than deleting items you have paid for.

We hope this helps!
