Z. Shipping Methods - Shipping Costs - Special Orders Outside Greece As companies that handle the pickup from our store and the delivery of our products to you, we use the companies ELTA Courier and Speedex Courier. We ship our products within Greece and to locations outside Greece, except for Asia. Shipping royal jelly and fresh bee bread outside Greece is not possible due to the special nature of these products, which must be kept at a temperature below 4 degrees Celsius to be suitable for consumption. Additionally, for orders intended for international delivery, cash on delivery is not accepted as a payment method. Therefore, the price of the ordered products and their shipping costs to international destinations must be prepaid, either by Visa or Mastercard credit/debit card or by bank transfer to the following business accounts:

  • Eurobank: GR1902603360000710100930800
  • Alpha Bank: GR0801407200720002002008615
  • Piraeus Bank: GR30 0171 0750 0060 7501 0252 956
  • Viva: GR4170100000000447661426664

H. Delivery Time for Products Sent by Us for Shipment The delivery of the ordered products to the courier or transportation company, provided that they are immediately available from our business, will be made on the next working day following the order if the order is placed by 16:00. Our online store apicell.gr and our business do not guarantee the availability of the products, but undertake to promptly inform customers about the availability or non-availability of these products. The transportation of the products is always at the customer's expense and responsibility and is carried out by our cooperating courier company to the place of delivery of the products. It is emphasized that the products travel and are transported on behalf of the buyer/consumer, who bears the risk of their transport, from the time of delivery by us to the point of transfer until their receipt by the recipient. The products remain our property until full payment of the price is made.

Our business is responsible for the delivery time of the products for transfer to the courier company or transportation company, provided that they are available, as described above. However, it does not bear responsibility for the final delivery time by the courier or transportation company to the consumer, as the responsibility lies solely with the courier or transportation company. Our business informs the consumer about when the ordered products were delivered to the courier or transportation company via email to the user who placed the order, whether the user has registered on our website, providing an active email, or has placed the order as a guest. Only in the case of user registration on our website will the user have the ability to track the overall progress of their order, a capability that is not available to users who have placed an order as guests.

I. Right to Cancel an Order Any cancellation of an order, whether total or partial, is made by the user who placed the order by sending a relevant email to info@apicell.gr or by making a phone call to the customer service phone lines of the online store at 2310476209 and 6979220118. The option to cancel the order is available until we inform the customer that we have delivered the products to the carrier.

I. Right of Withdrawal/Exceptions The consumer has a period of 7 (seven) calendar days to withdraw from the sales contract without specifying the reasons and without any burden.

The withdrawal period expires 7 (seven) calendar days from the day on which the consumer or a third party designated by them, other than the carrier, acquires physical possession of the goods, or: from the day on which the consumer or a third party designated by them, other than the carrier, acquires physical possession of the last item, in the case of multiple goods ordered by the consumer in one order and delivered separately, or from the day on which the consumer or a third party designated by them, other than the carrier, acquires physical possession of the last batch or piece, in the case of goods delivered in multiple batches or pieces. The right of withdrawal does not apply to the supply of sealed goods that are not suitable for return, for reasons of health or hygiene, and which have been unsealed or whose packaging has been opened after delivery. Furthermore, the right of withdrawal does not apply to the purchase of royal jelly and fresh royal jelly, as these products must be kept at a temperature below 4 degrees Celsius in order to be suitable for consumption. For this reason, they are packaged and shipped in special packaging with ice packs. Before the withdrawal period expires, in cases where it is allowed, i.e. before the end of the seven days as defined above, the consumer informs our company by sending an email to info@apicell.gr, providing a clear statement of their decision to withdraw from the contract. In this case, our company promptly confirms receipt of this withdrawal statement by email to the consumer at the same email address through which it received the withdrawal statement. The consumer bears the burden of proving that they exercised the right of withdrawal. In the case of permitted withdrawal, our company refunds any payment received from the consumer, excluding delivery costs, without undue delay and in any event within 14 calendar days from the day on which it was informed of the consumer's decision to withdraw from the contract, exercising, as applicable and at its discretion, the right of the last paragraph of this chapter. Our company is entitled to withhold the refund until it has received the goods back in the condition in which they were delivered, sealed and without breach of the seal or packaging, and accompanied by the tax invoice issued by our company for the sale, or until the consumer provides evidence that they have returned the goods in the condition in which they received them, along with the tax invoice issued by our company for the sale, whichever of the two occurs first. All transactions carried out through www.apicell.gr are governed by Law 131/2003, which harmonized Greek legislation with European Directive 31/2002/EC, in combination with the provisions of the Civil Code regarding sales, leasing, ordering, etc., and a series of related laws, presidential decrees, ministerial decisions, and Law 2251/1994 on consumer protection.
