What payment methods do you accept?

If you purchase products or book activities via the Tasteur website, you can pay via credit, debit, and prepaid cards issued by all major banks, as well as by PayPal. If the individual provider accepts cash payments or alternative payment methods, you are most welcome to visit their location and transact in person.

Which currencies can I pay in?

Tasteur is a global platform where the base currency is set to display in US Dollars. You can switch to your local currency simply by clicking on the price of the item that you’d like to purchase and selecting your currency of choice from the dropdown. Please note that prices may vary from time to time due to exchange fluctuations.

Is my credit card information secure?

Absolutely! Your online purchases and bookings are processed via PayPal, world leaders in secure virtual payments. All transactions take place on PayPal’s highly protected platform. Tasteur has no access to your credit card information or PayPal credentials.

orders & returns

What happens after I place my order?

The provider that you purchased from is notified about your transaction, which they then need to accept. If the transaction is not accepted within 3 days or before the end date (whichever comes first), the transaction is canceled, and no money is transferred. Once accepted, the order goes through, and you will get a receipt of the transaction via email. The provider's business name should appear on your receipt.

How do I order from several different providers?

To order from several providers, you must complete an order from each one separately. That is, the entire process of ordering from one provider must be completed, including payment. After receiving your order confirmation, a new order may be placed with another provider.

How can I edit or cancel my order?

If payment has not yet gone through, you can contact the provider directly via their listing or profile page and ask them to reject the current order that is pending. Once rejected, you can then make your preferred order or simply move on.

What about exchanges and returns?

It is important that you review each individual provider’s returns policy prior to placing your order. If it is part of their policy, the matter should be dealt with directly via the provider.

delivery & shipping

How does delivery & shipping work?

All orders and bookings are made directly between you and the provider. Tasteur simply makes the introduction. Therefore, you should read the individual delivery policies and instructions of each provider accordingly since they are responsible for fulfilling your request. Queries and issues related to orders and delivery should be addressed directly to the provider. Of course, in the event of any escalation or non-cooperation on the part of the provider, you may feel free to contact the Tasteur team, and we will do our best to mediate and help resolve the matter.

Where do you deliver?

Due to the delicate nature of consumable products, you will find that most providers only deliver locally. To avoid disappointments, please refer to the shipping policy of the individual provider before placing your order. If anything is unclear, particularly regarding international orders, it is always best to send the provider a private message via their listing or profile page. They will be happy to answer your questions and guide you accordingly.

Does you have your own delivery service?

Tasteur integrates with the providers’ existing delivery model. When a provider offers delivery, this is managed by the provider themselves and Tasteur is not involved in the order fulfillment.

What happens if I order from different providers?

Orders from different providers are not typically consolidated. Therefore, you should expect that your orders from different providers will be dispatched and arrive separately.
