When do you charge my credit card?

We take payment at the time of order, as opposed to the time of dispatch.

All online credit card orders are charged upfront, at the time the order is made via National Bank Secure Payment Service. We do this to validate the order and to ensure that all stock is pre-purchased. No order is accepted by Cakes For Corporates until the order has been checked and approved. If there is a problem, we will telephone you or e-mail you within three (3) working days.

Paying upfront also substantially reduces order processing time, and ensures that as a customer, all you need to do is sit back and wait for your delivery to arrive.

Cakes For Corporates is not responsible for any loss or damage caused by late delivery or cancellation of an order or a product.

Our agreement with you only comes into existence once we have both confirmed your order and your payment has been processed.

Once we have accepted payment for an order, cancellation of the order is at our sole discretion after taking into account the circumstances and reasons for cancellation.
If you need to cancel an order, please contact us immediately on Priority Call 03 9419 5225 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
Orders that cannot be cancelled will be subject to our Terms of Use relating to Returns and Refunds.

Security of information from your browser to our server?

A critical concern for electronic commerce is the secure transmission of data. To protect consumer data during transmission, Cakes For Corporates uses the latest SSL encryption technology that securely passes transaction data to the Cakes For Corporates gateway.

We use SSL (Secured Socket Layer) which means that we encrypt information sent to the server with a key that makes it almost impossible to decrypt. To do this we use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 256 bit encryption technology. This is superior to the industry standard.
This is far more secure than giving you credit card over the phone where someone could be listening, or to a cashier where someone can either look over your shoulder or get hold of your credit card receipt.

User Name & Password

You agree to take responsibility for the safekeeping of your user name and password. You are liable if your user name and password are used by an unauthorised person.
You agree to release and indemnify Cakes For Corporates in relation to any liability arising out of the unauthorised use of your username and/or password.

email address

You agree to provide your email address which will be used solely by Cakes for Corporates for all order contacts, clarifications, confirmations and notifications and, from time to time, to provide update notifications of Cakes for Corporates promotions and offers.
