How far do you deliver?

Dr. Dough HQ is based in Pyrmont, Sydney and delivers within Sydney only. We deliver up to approx. 65km from Sydney CBD (suburb dependant).

You can check if we deliver to your requested suburb by entering the delivery postcode in the 'YOUR CART' tab on the website. 

Oh, and we deliver 7 days a week with $5 Delivery fee across metro Sydney. The delivery fee may be slightly higher to some suburbs outside of Sydney metro. 

Can I select my delivery date and time?

Before checkout you can select your preferred delivery date and delivery time frame of either 8:00am - 12:00pm, or 12:00pm - 6:00pm. If a date is not available to select on the calendar that means we can not take any more orders for that day because we have reached our maximum capacity. 

We are unable to arrange deliveries for specific times. 

Dr. Dough Donuts delivers 7 days a week.

The calendar date is blocked out. Can I place an order for that day? 

No, sorry. If a date is not available to select on the calendar that means we can not take any more orders for that day because we have reached our maximum capacity. 

Do you deliver same day? 

Yes, we offer Same Day Delivery on our Classic range of donuts. Order before 1pm for delivery same day. We will close same day delivery when we sell out, so we may close same day delivery before 1pm. You will be notified on the website prior to checkout if we are sold out. See our Same Day Delivery range.

Can I track my order? 

Yes, we will provide you with a tracking link via email and SMS on the date of delivery when our driver picks up your order and leaves on the delivery run. We believe more than anything that the 'Last Mile' is just as important as our donuts.  This will allow you to track your order in Real Time to give you an exact ETA, you can also communicate with our drivers if required.

What if the Delivery Address is incorrect?

Please take care to provide accurate delivery details.
If the address provided to us is incorrect, here’s what we can do:
Deliver to an alternate location - There may be an additional redelivery charge. We aim to offer the best rate of $5 flat rate across Sydney metro. However because this will be removed from the delivery schedule our couriers treat this as a new delivery and this can sometimes incur an additional charge. We will communicate the cost to you, if you agree we can process the payment over the phone.
Note: This means that the order may not get to its new destination within your selected time frame but we will be able to tell you a new estimate.
If you do not wish to proceed with the delivery the order will be forfeited, but we will give you Dr. Dough credit to 50% of the total order value to add towards your next order. 

What if they aren’t home?

If the recipient is not home we will call the number of the recipient that you have provided us to know the best place to leave the box, so please add the recipients correct phone number.
Our couriers are on a tight schedule so they won’t be able to wait for more than 10 minutes, if we can’t get through to anybody, the courier will need to leave the box in the safest/best spot.
When we leave the box we leave it in perfect condition, make sure that the box is picked up as quickly as possible so that there is no opportunity for sticky fingers to help themselves, for ants to march in, or for the weather to get the better of it.

What if I need to cancel?

This isn’t a phone contract, you aren’t locked in. If life happens and you need to cancel just let us know by 4pm the day prior to the delivery date and we will be happy to reschedule, refund or provide credit towards your next order. For orders of 30 donuts or more we will need 24 hours notice.
We just won’t be able to cancel orders on the day of the delivery because each order/ donuts are prepared very early that morning to order. On this occasion the order will be forfeited, but we will give you Dr. Dough credit to 50% of the total order value to add towards your next order.

Please note that any refund will be processed back to the card that the order was placed with. 

How do I store my donuts and when should I eat them? 

Like Goldilocks, donuts prefer weather conditions to be not too hot and not too cold, they should be just right. Our donuts should be stored at ambient and removed from humid conditions. If donuts are exposed to these conditions the toppings may deteriorate and may change the appearance.
And just like Goldi’s porridge, donuts should only be consumed sooner rather than later and should be consumed on the day of receiving.

Do you include invoices with deliveries? 

We do not include an invoice or any paperwork with donuts when we deliver. We understand that our donuts are quite often sent as gifts and as such the Tax Invoice and confirmation will be emailed to the person placing the order only. 

Can I pick up? Can I visit Dr. Dough?

Pick up is available upon request. Please contact us if you would like to proceed with a pickup order and the team will assist with available times.

We are an online store and do not have a shop front open to the public. So please place your order online only.
