With an invitation from a GourmetVip member, the invited person that registers in the club receives a gift voucher of €5 in his/her account. Furthermore, when an invited new member makes his first purchase, a €5 gift voucher will be given also to the account of the original member who invited him to join GourmetVip. Gift vouchers from invitations are automatically deducted from the total amount of the purchase made, provided it is over 50€ without shipping costs. In case of changes relating to the amount of gift vouchers, these would apply to any new vouchers issued from the date of change.

GourmetVip reserves the right to cancel vouchers when it is observed fraudulent use. It is considered a misuse of invitations, and so fraudulent use, to send email between accounts belonging to the same person, trying to take advantage from the invitation gift voucher system.

When a GourmetVip Member invites a relative or friend to the club, it will also have responsibility to any potential liability from this invitation. GourmetVip has no liability as the invitations are done between members themselves.


The descriptions of the products displayed on the Website are made based on information provided by the suppliers of GourmetVip. Photographs relating to products and trade names, trademarks or logos of any kind shown in the GourmetVip website are from the actual items offered for sale, in order to give the most real and accurate information possible about the product. However, the member must be aware that they are not 100% perfectly accurate.


All product prices listed through the website include VAT and other taxes that may apply. However, these prices do not include the shipping costs, which are listed separately and must be accepted by the Member.

In cases where discount are offered on GourmetVip products compared to retail price, this comparision of prices has been calculated using the price list provided by the supplier, or otherwise the prices have been verified by the GourmetVip procurement team at points of sale.

GourmetVip informs the Member that the number of units available for any of the campaigns or promotions have been reserved by our suppliers for their sale on GourmetVip. In no event will GourmetVip intentionally sell more units than the provider has reserved.

In the event that a product is not available once an order has been placed, the Member will be informed by email of the cancellation of all or part of the order. The partial cancellation of order due to lack of product availability, is not eligible for cancellation of the entire order. In the event that, due to a partial cancellation, the customer wants to return the part of the order that was delivered, he must follow the process described in “Returns”.


The Member agrees to pay at the time when order is made. To the price listed on the website for each of the products offered, shipping costs will be added separately. In any case, the shipping costs will be clearly shown to the member prior to finalizing the purchase.

The ticket or proof of purchase corresponding to any order, will be made available to the member, and can be viewed at www.GourmetVip.com in "My Account / Invoices".

The Member can pay their orders with credit card or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Visa Electron and / or similar cards) or via PayPal system.

The Member should notify ASAP to GourmetVip via e-mail or telephone, in case of any improper or fraudulent charges that might have been applied to the card used for purchases done, so GourmetVip can make the necessary arrangements immediately and take the appropriate actions.


GourmetVip has the highest security level in the market sector. The payment process works under a secure server using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. The secure server establishes a connection, so the information is transmitted encrypted using 128-bit algorithms, which ensure that it is only intelligible to the member computer and to the Web Site. Thus, the SSL protocol ensures that:

  • All Members submit their data to the GourmetVip server with the highest security level and not to anyone else attempting to hack it.
  • The data transmitted between the member and the GourmetVip server is encrypted, avoiding anyone to read them and being unaccessible to any third parties.

Furthermore, GourmetVip does not have access to confidential information concerning the payment method used, and therefore does not store any kind of information in this regard. Only PayPal, "La Caixa" bank or the Sermepa System would have access to this data as part of the management and payment process, which are inaccessible to other third parties.


Once the order has been formalized, with the acceptance of the CU and confirmation of the purchase order, GourmetVip will always send an e-mail to the Member confirming the details of the purchase.


GourmetVip accepts cancellations of orders upon request within 48 hours after placing the order. To cancel you must access "My Account", "Returns and cancellations" and fill out the form with the corresponding data.

After 48 hours of placing an order, no cancellations will be accepted due to logistical reasons. If you still want to cancel an order after 48 hours, you should proceed with the steps outlined in “return process”.

The cancellation cost of an order is 2 €.


I. Product Delivery

GourmetVip is committed to deliver the products purchased in perfect condition to the address indicated by the member on the order form, which in any case must be within the Territory. In order to optimize the delivery, it is more efficient if the Member indicates an address where the order can be delivered within normal working hours.

GourmetVip will not be liable for errors caused in the delivery when the delivery address entered by the member in the order form does not conform to reality or was partially omitted.

GourmetVip informs its members that it is possible that the same order might be split into several deliveries.

II. Delivery Time

The maximum delivery time is thirty (30) days, although the usual delivery time for GourmetVip orders ranges between 14 and 21 days, starting one week after the date of purchase. In the event of delivery times different from the ones mentioned, that would be specifically announced on the website.

For more information, it is important to note that during this time, the procedure is as follows: Reception of the goods from suppliers in our store (between 7 and 11 days), preparation of orders (between 6 and 8 days) and dispatch through express parcel delivery (1 to 2 days in Spain, for other countries this might vary). When the order is ready, Gourmetvip will contact the Member via email, confirming when the order has shipped. Within 24 to 48 hours the order should have been delivered to the address indicated at the time of the completion of purchase (deliveries in Spain, for other countries this might vary).

In the event that a member selects the option "pick up my order", he/she will receive a notification detailing the day when the order will be in a specific collection point selected by the member. The product would remain there a maximum of 15 days. Passed this period, the item will be automatically returned.

Once the order has been shipped, the member can keep track of it in "My Account / Order."

The times outlined above are approximate. Therefore, it is possible that these might vary due to logistical reasons or force majeure. In cases of delays in deliveries, GourmetVip will inform their members correspondingly.

Each delivery is considered completed from the moment in which the courier makes the product available to the member, which is materialized through the control system used by the courier.

In case of delays on the delivery of any orders attributable to GourmetVip, the Member may cancel such order in accordance with the procedure described in Section "Return Procedure". It will not be considered a delay of delivery, those cases where the product has been made available to the Member by the courier within the agreed timescale, and could not be delivered for reasons attributable to the Member.

III. Data Delivery, Delivery and Loss

In the same e-mail informing the Member that the product has been shipped, GourmetVip will provide a dispatch number and a contact phone number of the company responsible for the delivery, so the Member can contact the courier directly in case of any incident.

If the customer is absent upon delivery of the product, the courier will leave a note at the point of delivery notifying that the package is waiting to be delivered. GourmetVip provides, as part of the courier delivery process, a follow-up service (calls to the Members in different time zones, SMS, etc), in order to ensure a successful and efficient delivery.

In the event that the order has not been delivered past 10 business days from the date of purchase (Spain only, for other countries this might vary), the Member must contact GourmetVip to +34 915 919 818 or send an email to reclamaciones@gourmetvip.com. If the member does not do so, past these 10 days the order will be returned to GourmetVip stores, being the Member responsible for the original shipping charges and return costs, as well as any potential associated management costs.

If the reason for not making the delivery is that the package has been lost during transportation, the Gourmetvip logistics operator will initiate an investigation. In these cases, the response times of the courier might range from one to three weeks.

In the event that a member selects the option "pick up my order", he/she will receive a notification detailing the day when the order will be in a specific collection point selected by the member. The product would remain there a maximum of 15 days. Passed this period, the item will be automatically returned.

IV. Diligence in the delivery

The Member should check the condition of the package at the time is being delivered, indicating in the receipt any issues that might have been found. In case that it is after the product has been delivered, when the member realizes that there is some actual damage caused by shipping, or that there are some signs of the package having been open before being delivered, the member undertakes to inform GourmetVip of so via e-mail (reclamaciones@gourmetvip.com) as soon as possible with a maximum timeframe of 7 days from the delivery date.


I. Return Policy

If the reason for return is attributable to GourmetVip (the product is defective, is not what you had ordered, etc.), the use of this service is free. If the subject is another (not what you expected or others), GourmetVip would pay the cost of the item, excluding the shipping costs.
