Shipping

Orders are delivered or shipped by Maltapost within 3 business days from receipt of payment.  If there is a delay in dispatching, j-okini will notify the buyer by an email or a phone call.  During a busy period such as before Christmas (starting mid November), we group orders by locality so there will be a delay for deliveries.

The minimum order for delivery is 30 euros.  Delivery or shipping with Maltapost depending on your location in Malta.   Also depends on the amount of order and the kind of product (for example we will not ship Ramen bowls or Matcha bowls with Maltapost).  Please check an email from us in your mailbox (it might be in spam) about the update of shipping or delivery.  If you prefer a delivery, not shipping by Maltapost, please write in a comment.

<Europe, UK, USA, Canada>

Shipping to countries outside Malta is with a registered mail with a tracking number, a standard mail without a tracking number.   The price is calculated according to the weight of your total order in your cart.

It takes approx. 5 – 14 days depending on the countries with standard mail.

The shipping time also may vary according to how busy your local post office is at the time of arrival in your country, such as Christmas and New Year’s period takes longer than other period.

– Standard mail without a tracking number:  This is the cheapest shipping method. This is a service by Maltapost in Malta and it will be handled by your country’s local post office.  The shipment with this service cannot be tracked.  We will be packing well and putting the addresses on the package and inside the package but in case there is a delay or a lost, we are unable to take responsibility to replace your order.  Please choose this shipping method after agreeing that there is a risk of delay or lost.

– Registered mail with a tracking number:  it takes the same time as Standard mail, but it is with a tracking number and it can be tracked.

– Parcel post with a tracking number: This service is for a big order or heavy products and it takes slightly longer than the standard mail.  This method can also be tracked.

<Covid-19 situation>

Please allow some more time till item is delivered to outside Malta since we are currently experiencing delays due to reduced flights and consignments.

As of August 2022, it is still not the same situation as before covid-19 in some countries but the shipping time is improving.

USA & Canada: Currently suspended until next year.
