Can I send different items to multiple addresses?
For any order, but especially when you are sending to more than one address our advice is for you to set up an account with us and populate the contact details of yourself and the people you might want to send salmon to, now or in the future. In this way you can access your account by logging in and your contact details and those of all your friends will be stored and you will never have to remember or type out their details again. If you want to send something to yourself as well as to other addresses you need to fill in your contact details in the multiple addresses database along with your friends. Once you have set up an account and included your and your friends addresses, log in and your contact details will automatically be filled in to the Billing Address. Imagine if you wanted to send four sliced sides (it could be any of the products in the shop) Choose the total amount of items you want to send to the multiple addresses, proceed to the checkout, you will see your name in the billing Address and the opportunity to pick multiple addresses from your stored addresses at the top right of the page. Go to the multiple addresses and see the four sides, then select one of your stored addresses alongside the product. Remember to pick your own address if you want a product sent to yourself. Save and continue, scroll down the page so you can see the four orders, fill in the delivery date, the delivery instructions and the personal message for each person. Then all you need to do is complete the order, pay by credit card and you will be notified your order has been accepted.
Can I send a message in with the parcel?
You can write a short greetings message eg “Merry Christmas, Love from Mary” “Happy Birthday” “congratulations on passing your exams” “bon appetite, enjoy!”
Your message will be printed on the back of a special Certificate of Origin. It is always best to put your name and message in with the goods, we often get people phoning up asking us who sent them such a lovely gift, we shouldn’t expect the receiver to know who has sent them a gift.
How will I know my order has been accepted?
You will receive an email confirmation of order to let you know your order has been accepted and your payment has gone through.
How can I pay for my product?

If you don’t receive your goods on the day you expect them contact us right away and we will contact FedEx, give you a tracking number and get the problem resolved as soon as possible.
