Where can I find my order details?
Simply log in and go to ‘My orders’. Here you will see all your order and historical order details.

What does it mean when I place an item in my ‘Regulars’?
These are the items that you’d like to keep stocked up in your household. You can set the frequency that you’ll need these so you are completely in control. It means they’ll always be on your shopping list and Bother will be learning when and how often you need these items.

For example, you can choose to snooze an item for a month, we will then add this to your online box when the time comes (just before the month is about the end) and you can simply choose whether to check out with these items or snooze them again.

Can I place my order over the phone?
Unfortunately, we do not take orders over the phone at this time. If you need some help with the ordering process please get in touch at

Is there a minimum spend?
There is no minimum spend.

Can I edit my order?
