Do you have free Shipping?
As of the moment, we do not have free shipping. What we currently offer are discounts when you spend a certain amount for the order. Spend a minimum of $99 to qualify for a 5% discount.
How much is the Shipping Fee?
Shipping fees are automatically calculated by our system which takes in to consideration the weight of the product ordered and how far the distance is from the warehouse from your house. The heavier the product ordered and the farther the distance, the higher the shipping fee.
SHIPPING and TRACKING. How long will my order arrive when I placed the order now?
1. COVID-19 Important Update: We are experiencing heavy demand in all our warehouse affecting shipments and inventory. Expect shipments delay between 2 to 3 weeks. Also we are seeing several out of stock items, we suggest not to cancel the order so that we can secure the items for you. If you wish to cancel please notify us immediately within 30 minutes. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding. We don’t offer expedited delivery.
2. The couriers are usually UPS and USPS. You may track your package using http://track.naturesideal.com/
SHIPPING and DELIVERY ISSUES:
I only received a part of my order. Are there any more shipments coming?
For short shipments, investigation is required and there are a number of reasons for this:
You ordered a large quantity. Our supplier usually divides large quantity orders to make sure that you will receive the products in good condition. Tracking numbers will be sent via email and you will be notified as well of the status of the order.
1. The products you ordered came from different distribution centers. There are times when we need to ship the product you ordered from another warehouse because it is unavailable to the one near you. Tracking numbers will be sent via email and you will be notified as well of the status of the order.
2. When there is no scheduled delivery after you have received a part of your product, we may need a little more time to further investigate what happened. And if short shipment is verified, we will process a replacement for the remaining items undelivered.
I receive an incorrect product/The product I received is different from the product I ordered. What should I do?
When reporting an incorrect product received, it is best to send a picture of the product received as well as the UPC or the Universal Product Code. The UPC is located at the bottom of the bar code that is printed on the product itself. We will compare the UPC of the product ordered and the UPC of the product received. If they are the same, it means that the manufacturer changed their packaging label, but the ingredients are the same and intact. Otherwise, it means that some of the ingredients are changed and if you are not comfortable using the product, you may return it to us and we will refund the amount that you paid.
The products I received were damaged. What are the ways to correct this?
If you received a damaged product, please send us a picture of it to our support email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is it possible to cancel my order?
Cancellation of orders must be reported within the next 30 minutes after the order was placed. Our process is fully automated and once our system has processed the order, cancellation will not be possible. What you can do is return the product to us once you received it (but you will pay for the shipping cost) or you can refuse delivery. We will be charging 15% restocking fee.
The shipping address on my order is incorrect. How can I correct it?
1. If the order has been placed within the 30 minutes grace period, we can still change or correct the shipping address on the order. Another email will be sent to let you know about the changes made on the order.
2. If the order is already beyond the 30 minutes grace period, we can no longer change the ship to address but we can wait until the order ships out and contact the carrier to change the shipping address for the tracking and delivery information.
3. If in any case we were unable to cancel or contact the carrier for change of address, we may be able to process an order replacement with the correct shipping information.
I want to return an item. Will I get a free return label?
1. You may return unopened items within 30 days of delivery. Buyer pays return shipping costs.
2. If you receive an incorrect shipment, defective or expired products, we take care of return shipping costs and we will provide a free return label. Unfortunately we do not process claims for quality complaints in regards to taste, touch, or smell. If the product is sealed or not expired then these complaints are to be reported directly to the manufacturer by the consumer.
3. For returns, go to My Account, Completed Orders and click on Return Item(s) next to your order item. Fill up the return form and click Submit Return Request. You should expect to receive your refund excluding shipping costs within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper. However, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly.
