Delivery & Returns
Currently, Hempen is still open, now selling primarily online. We are following government guidelines and enacting additional hygiene and cleaning standards to our usual procedures, to proactively minimise the spread of the virus, and promote the well-being of our members and the wider community. We aim to continue our operations as long as it is safe to do so for us and for other people. Most of our sales (if not all) will be online, so we’re increasing customer service and dispatch days to keep up with demand. A full blog post here.
Whilst we can (see Royal Mail update below), to keep up with demand and keep things moving, we are increasing the number of days on which we dispatch orders. Our customer service email is checked more regularly and our phone line available 7 days a week. We hope that with this additional cover we’ll be able to keep up and no-one will wait too long for orders.
Thanks for bearing with us, and thank you for your continued support! Be well.
Royal Mail Corona Virus Update
From receipt of payment, all orders are shipped within 3 working days – and hopefully, within 24 hours! Packages are dispatched on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, so if you order before midday on one of those days, you should have your order within 2 working days.
For example, if you order on Sunday, your order with be dispatched on Monday and should arrive by Wednesday. If you order after midday on Wednesday, your order will be dispatched on Friday, and should arrive by the following Monday/Tuesday.

Delivery Time & Cost
Delivery time and cost depends on your location:
Orders to the UK, Northern Ireland and Channel Islands cost £4.25, and are shipped by Royal Mail Tracked 48. Orders should be delivered within 2-3 working days of dispatch, or earlier.
Delivery is free for orders over £100, so fill your hemp boots!
Orders to Western Europe cost £10.75, and are shipped by Royal Mail International Standard. Allow 3-5 working days for delivery after dispatch.
Presently, for international orders, we only deliver to neighbouring countries in Western Europe. This is because we believe in supporting local economies and reducing our footprint.
Don’t worry, we don’t make any money on delivery – we just pass on direct costs to our customers, to keep it fair and transparent.
