Few notes about orders:
NO COUPON CODES CAN BE USED for co-op orders!
Kindly note that the free shipping offer on our website's promo bar is not applicable to co-op orders.
To save on packaging, we will combine multiple-ounce orders into larger packages. (Example if you order 3 ounces, we will ship all 3 ounces in one vacuum sealed bag)
We schedule all co-op orders to begin to ship the day after the co-op sale closes. If we can get them out early, you will receive an email notification that will show your shipment and tracking details.
If you have any problems or queries related to pre or post-ordering, contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We remain committed to our customers.
If you haven't gotten your order after 7 business days, check your tracking number, and then, if required, contact us. If it says your package is delayed, please get in touch with your post office to get some clarification. It is because we don't have any additional info other than what the website shows. If you haven't received your package even after 30 days, please contact us and we will find the best solution for you.
If your ordered item is showing as delivered on the tracking page but you haven’t received it yet, please contact your local post office. Since we do not physically deliver these packages, in such cases, your post office can help you find a solution. We will definitely guide you as much as we can. Still, it is their duty to deliver the packages and therefore, they will be answerable for any such inconveniences.
Vanilla beans are a perishable item. That is why if you find the delivered product missing or with broken seals, mold, etc, you must contact us within 72 hours of any issues found. We cannot find you any solution to this after 4 weeks if you failed to notice the issue at the time of receipt.
