Warm Weather Shipping
Island Princess is happy to ship chocolate products all year round. However, Island Princess does not assume liability for damaged or melted chocolate shipped in higher temperatures. Certain areas of the United States have extended hot weather beyond the summer months, therefore we discourage any chocolate orders if the "ship to" location has temperatures of 80 degrees or higher. To ensure your chocolate products arrive properly, consider choosing our FedEx 2-3 Day shipping option. Make sure there is a person at the location to receive the package when choosing this option, so it doesn't sit on a porch in the heat. If a person cannot be at the location to receive the package, consider a Hold for Pickup delivery. If you opt for this delivery, please note this in the comments section at checkout.

If it is higher than 80 degrees and you have already placed your order, we will contact you by email to see if you want to:

1: REVISE your order to remove any chocolate items OR
2: HOLD your order until temperatures come down and deliver at that time OR
3: CANCEL your chocolate order and order at a later time.

Heat Waiver

As with all fine chocolates, Island Princess Chocolate items are heat sensitive. Unfortunately, no parcel carrier is able to insure against heat damage. A Heat Waiver is a written understanding that Island Princess is not responsible for any heat damage that may occur during shipping. In order to be certain you understand this sensitivity, we ask that you accept our "heat waiver" as part of your ordering process. If a chocolate product does come melted, consider putting the chocolate in a refrigerator or let it sit at room temperature to return to normal state. Ultimately, it is the customer's decision to order chocolate during higher temperatures at their own risk.

International Orders / APO & FPO
If your order is for International, Alaska or APO/FPO delivery, at checkout, when you select your country in the shipping calculation section you will receive the note "we will contact you" or "missing". Please complete submission of your order (that will show a "0" shipping cost). After we receive your order, we will call or email you with a shipping quote for your approval before we process your order and add the shipping charges to your credit card. Due to uncertainty of weather and delivery conditions for these destinations, we highly recommend that you avoid shipping chocolate products.

Please Note: Since we evaluate every order carefully in order to determine the cheapest and fastest shipping method, there may be some discrepancies in the shipping method you chose at checkout and the actual shipping method used. For example, you might have chose the FedEx Home/Ground method and received a USPS package instead. Anytime we do this, we make sure to refund you the difference in the amount you paid for shipping and the actual shipping cost. Please keep in mind that the shipping rates from Hawaii are different and often times much higher than the shipping rates from the mainland. We will only consider issuing a refund based on our own shipping rates and not from some third party shipping quote.
