Order Processing

Orders are packed only on regular business days (Monday through Friday), with the exception of the German national holidays.
Refrigerated products are shipped on Monday and Thursday. If the payment is received only on Thursday morning, shipping on Thursday can no longer be guaranteed. Refrigerated products will not ship until the following Monday.


Frozen and Fresh products Shipping

We ship frozen products and fresh products with German Parcel Service (DPD), DHL or UPS.

To ensure that every frozen product arrives safely and optimally chilled, all frozen products are carefully packed by hand in a high-quality, reusable Styrofoam box. For perfect cooling, shipping is done with icepack. This ensures a complete continuation of the cold chain up to your home.

Frozen goods are delivered only within Germany. Delivery to DPD Paketschops or DHL Packstations is not possible.

Refrigerated products are shipped on Monday and Thursday. If the payment is received only on Thursday morning, shipping on Thursday can no longer be guaranteed. Refrigerated products will not ship until the following Monday.

Note: We only ship cooled articles from Monday - Wednesday to delivery addresses within Germany to ensure delivery before the weekend. Therefore, in some cases, longer delivery times may occur if your order contains refrigerated items. Please make sure that the package can be accepted by DHL upon delivery. We will inform you about the shipment of the parcel by e-mail, so that you may instruct neighbors or other persons to accept it.

As a customer, you are obliged to guarantee acceptance of your ordered goods during this period - either by you personally or possibly by a neighbor. For shipping company, a corresponding note must be clearly visible. If you do not fulfill this obligation and the goods are thawed or spoiled, the full invoice amount is still due.

We also recommend express shipping (+ € 3.00 surcharge) as a shipping option for all refrigerated / frozen goods, delivery to the next working day (within 24 hours) after delivery guaranteed to service providers. It is particularly important in summer when the outside temperature is relatively higher than normal temperature. If you do not select this shipping option and the goods thaw or spoil, NikanKitchen is not responsible for this and the full invoice amount is still due.
