Each week we plan exciting recipes, we shop for all the ingredients you need, we pack the amount of ingredients you need and deliver the ingredients and recipes (service/product/subscription/box).
2) Subscription payment model
YouPlate.it is a subscription service where you will be charged weekly in advance for the box we provide. Your subscription remains active until you cancel it. You can cancel at any time after your first delivery. All changes to subscriptions (cancellations, plan changes, pauses & address changes) must be made by the cut-off time of midnight Wednesday WST (cut-off time).
You must have an address in our delivery area to order and receive your subscription.
We deliver between 12-6pm Sunday. If you are not able to meet the delivery driver please leave instructions in “My Account” that detail where our delivery driver should leave your YouPlate.it box. Ownership of goods transfers to you once we have left the box at your address.
We offer you choice. Each week we list 6 recipes to choose from. You have until the cut-off time to choose from the recipe selections. If you don’t make a selection we send you the “chef’s choice”. You cannot make changes to individual recipes or substitute specific ingredients. We do not cater for food allergies and our boxes are packed in a facility that is used to process nut and milk products.
