Most Frequently Asked
Are honestbee prices higher than in-store?
When you shop at stores that carry a label “Today’s best price”, you pay the latest price given to us by our partners (the stores you see on honestbee)—without a mark-up.
“Today’s best price” means that you get to enjoy the same price as in-store on the day you place your order. For example, if you place your order on Monday, with delivery for Tuesday, you pay Monday’s in-store price.
The subtotal that you see on our website or mobile apps when you place your order is final. You will not pay more. Even if the in-store price of some of your items on the day when we shop for them is higher.
Occasionally prices on honestbee.hk website and mobile apps may be higher than in-store. We offer the most competitive pricing we can for each of our partners with higher than in-store prices. To find out which stores offer “Today’s best price”, navigate to the Stores page and check the labels below the store logos.

Why are items missing from my order?
Although our goal is to fulfil every order, sometimes we find out an item is out of stock only when our concierge shopper is doing your shopping at the actual store near to you.
If an item is missing from your order, check your final receipt (usually sent within 15 minutes) if on it the items are marked as delivered or out of stock. If the items are shown as delivered, but they’re not there, please contact us.
What happens if an item is out of stock?
You can select a substitute on our website or mobile apps to let your concierge shopper know what to buy in case an item is out of stock.
If you haven’t selected a substitute on our website or mobile apps, your concierge shopper will suggest one and text you a link to a simple web page where you can review it. You will have 10 minutes to do so. We won’t buy the substitute without your approval!
If you choose not to substitute, or if your preferred substitute is not available, we'll remove the item and adjust your final receipt accordingly.
How does honestbee refund charges for out of stock items?
Your card is only charged after you receive your delivery. If an item is out of stock, your receipt is adjusted before we make deductions.
What is a substitute?
At times, your original item of choice may be out of stock. You can either select a substitute through our website or app, or let your concierge shopper suggest a substitute while shopping.
How do I leave instructions for my concierge shopper?
Our trained concierge shoppers always carefully choose items to make sure you get fresh, good quality produce. If you want to leave more specific instructions, for example, “Please ask the butcher to grind my meat coarsely,”, you can do it after you add an item to your cart in the “Add instructions” box.
