How to shop at Spices of India

Shopping with us is just like shopping in a conventional supermarket. Simply locate the products you want, add them to your basket and then proceed to the checkout to make payment.

We will deliver the products, very carefully wrapped and in some cases chilled, direct to your door. Delivery within the UK is normally 2-business days but you can optionally select next business day for a small additional fee.

At the moment we only despatch Fresh Fruit, Vegetables and Sweets on a Tuesday for delivery before the weekend. Some fresh produce, such as Paneer, are already despatched 4-days a week. We will soon be despatching all fresh produce 4-days a week for next-day delivery. When ordering Fresh produce we recommend you select next-day delivery so that they arrive in best condition.

The 6-stages of shopping with us are:
  1. Locate items
  2. Add items to basket
  3. View/Modify Basket
  4. Checkout
  5. Email Confirmation from us
  6. Delivery to your door
Special Promotions

Where we run a special promotion, such as "Buy-1-get-1-free", it operates the same way as a conventional supermarket. Ie. You need to add 2-items to your basket to get 1 free. If you turned up at the checkout at a supermarket with just 1-item you wouldn"t take the second one home free...
