About this service
Who we are?
Mymilkman.ie is brought to you by Tirlán Limited on behalf of hard – working enthusiastic network of milkmen and women around Ireland.
What is the service?
It’s a recurring fresh milk delivery service direct to your door approximately 3 times a week. Enter your address to find the local milkman or women in your area, set up your account online, and 2-3 days per week you will receive fresh milk and more delivered to your door.
How do I know if there is a milkman in the area?
We’ve hundreds of milkmen and women delivering milk throughout the country. Simply input your address on the homepage and we’ll find the local milkman or woman in your area. You will also be able to see the pricing and products the local milkman / woman carry. Some of our milkmen and women do not use mymilkman.ie just yet, which means that the online payment functionality is not available to you but can still have fresh milk delivered to your door. The milkman or woman can help to facilitate cash payments instead. Simply complete the form and we will contact you to provide you with the details of your milkman.
How much does the service cost?
The cost of milk may vary slightly between the various milkmen and women. Most milkmen and women aim to keep the pricing in line with your local corner shop. A small delivery fee may also apply depending on your milkman. Once you are matched to the local milkman / woman in your area you will be able to view all pricing / delivery charges.
What are the delivery times / days?
Milkmen and women typically deliver before breakfast, about 3 times per week. However the days and times of milk deliveries are specific to your local milkman or woman. Once you enter your address the delivery days should be displayed to you.
Do you just deliver milk / What can I order?
Your milkman will deliver products from their own unique list. In general, most milkmen and women deliver milk, eggs, juice, butter, cream, cheese & yogurts. When you are matched to your local milkman you can browse his or her unique range of products.
Are there any minimum quantities?
There is no minimum order quantity or value. However, we recommend this service works best for people / families that use at least 3 Litres of milk a week.
When do I receive my first order?
When you set up your account, the request goes to the milkman to select your first delivery date. Once he or she selects the start date you will receive an email with the details of your first delivery
How am I billed?
We deliver to you, and you pay after. Each week your milkman or woman will send you your weekly bill. Online payment will be processed 48hours after you receive this bill. Alternatively, if your milkman or woman is not on mymilkman.ie, they will contact you directly regarding cash payment. This cash collection option varies from one milkman to the next, so it is best to check with your local milkman or woman directly regarding cash collection.
How often do I get billed?
You will receive a bill via email once a week. If you are paying cash, most milkmen or women will issue you with a bill when collecting cash. If you do require different billing terms, you can discuss this directly with your milkman or woman.

What happens if my card expires?
To update your card, simply log in to your account, go to My Account and in the Account Details section , click on payment method. You will be notified in advance that your card is about to expire, so you will get the chance to update your card details. However, if you don’t update your details in advance, the payment will fail and roll in to the following week.
Why am I being asked to ‘authenticate’ my credit / debit card?
A new EU Directive PSD2 has been introduced to improve credit/ debit card security, and reduce card fraud. As part of this directive, banks are being advised to conduct a ‘Secure Customer Authentication’ (SCA) step on electronic card transactions. This is effectively an extra security (authentication) step that will ensure the legal card holder is the person initiating the transaction.
With mymilkman.ie, we deliver first, and you are charged after we deliver. The payment is processed as a recurring order, and the value is amended each week as you change or pause your order. However, to set your card up initially, or update your card details, your own bank still needs to authenticate your card, and ensure you are the legal card holder.
The process is straightforward. When setting up a card on mymilkman.ie, or updating your card details, as you are not making a payment at that moment in time, your own bank will complete the (SCA) authentication step with a zero value (€0.00) transaction – that is, you won’t be charged anything. Once you have authenticated the card details via this zero value (€0.00) transaction, you are set up, and ready to avail of the service. You will only be charged after your deliveries. All payment details are securely encrypted and stored with Global Payments.

What do I need to do to authenticate my card?
For initial background, please read the question ‘Why am I being asked to ‘authenticate’ my credit/debit card?’ in this Billing FAQ section.
Once you have inputted your card details to mymilkman.ie, your own bank will prompt a €0.00 value ‘authentication’ step – and you will be presented with your own banks authentication process, for you to complete. Each bank has a different authentication process – and the steps may depend on how you have set up the authentication process with your own bank – therefore the following are general guidelines that you may find helpful.
You may be asked to authenticate the €0.00 payment by doing one of the following
Complete the authentication in your banking app (if you are an active banking app user). Once you input the card details, your bank may send a push notification to bring you directly to your banking app page to authenticate. To ensure you get the push notification, make sure that you have push notifications enabled for your banking app.
Enter a one time password / code on the autentication page, that will be sent to your phone number or email address.
If you don’t currently have any means to authenticate the payment, or if you are seeing any error message, please call the mymilkman.ie customer service team on the phone number below for advice (please note we cannot process any card transaction on a customer’s behalf, as the consumer must authenticate themselves – however the team may be able to offer some useful tips or next
