Fulfillment

Out of Stock/Oversale Fulfillment

OVERSELL: Occasionally due to software glitches or warehouse damages to inventory, an item will not be available even though it cleared our payment system. In most cases we will contact you to determine if you would like to hold the order, cancel the order, or swap out the item for the same (or greater) total weight of product in a different SKU (packaging).

We reserve the right to automatically swap up the item to an equal or greater quantity/total weight of product in all orders, without notifying you, as long as the swapped item contains identical inner product (ie. flour for flour), in order to expedite shipping. Automatic switching will occur when the expected wait for a hold exceeds two weeks, or any period following a holiday closure. If we switch items, we will add a note in your package referencing this policy.

PRESALE: We often offer items for presale (reserve) when they are known to be sold out. If you order a PRESALE item, your card WILL be charged at time of order, and your entire order will be held until the PRESALE item is back in stock. You will receive weekly updates as to the status of the item and you will be given options for alternatives, as things evolve.

 

DOMESTIC DELIVERY

PROCESSING

We generally process orders Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, except for office closures, holidays and weather closures/outages. We do not process orders on weekends or Wednesdays.

Orders are typically shipped 2-3 business days after they are placed. Orders are  processed 1-2 business days  after they are received. Once an order is processed, a shipping label is created, and the order is packed. The order may be held for an 1 business day after date of label creation, in order to allow customers to make any corrections or cancellations they  need to, at no extra charge.

Once an order leaves the dock, any changes to the order (shipping address etc) will incur extra charges.

Most orders deliver within 5-7 business days from date of order, but it can take up to 14 total days to arrive, depending on where the order falls in the cycle, office/carrier closures, weather, etc. We DO NOT guarantee delivery times.

 

SHIPPING FEES

We now offer low flat rate uninsured shipping for $5 OR flat rate insured shipping for $10 or less, to most US locations . Flat rate shipping may go out either USPS priority, UPS Surepost or UPS ground. We choose the least expensive method for our flat rate shipping. Because Surepost can take up to 14 days to arrive, you may choose instead to specify a carrier (UPS ground or USPS priority), which typically delivery up to a week earlier than Surepost. Additional costs will apply. Delivery times are not guaranteed when you choose these options, but the carrier will be chosen as specified. Additional air fees and weight limitations (10lb and under) apply to APOs and Hawaii and Alaska, and these locations will generally have much longer delivery times.

IMPORTANT:  If you choose uninsured shipping for checkout, you will not be able to place a claim for damage, ie spilled product.

Please note: Because average cost of shipping is higher than what we charge, shipping fees are never refundable. Shipping fees will be deducted from all refunds on orders.

DELIVERY TIME ESTIMATES

Your order should generally arrive 5 to 14 total days after it is placed. During PREORDER or backorder status, or during closures (weather or holidays), orders will be delayed and we will communicate with you when an order delay is expected for longer than a week.

We NEVER guarantee delivery dates/times for any of our shipping optinos (flat rate, UPS ground, and USPS priority). Actual arrival times may vary by several days from quoted estimate. We do NOT offer refunds or reshipments based on time delay.

Please note: Because average cost of shipping is higher than what we charge, shipping fees are never refundable, even in cases of shipping delay.

 

INSURED SHIPPING OPTIONS

UPS and USPS have highly restrictive guidelines for claims regarding food purchases. Our representatives have warned we will have a 90%+ refusal rate for these items. Therefore we DO NOT guarantee items against damage through UPS or USPS and we DO NOT MAKE CLAIMS on your behalf with these companies. By ordering uninsured shipping, you acknowledge that you have no recourse against damages in transit.

We DO offer an in-house, optional Flat Rate Insured shipping option at checkout. This is meant to protect your order in cases of rips and spills of internal bags, resulting in loss of product. This option does NOT cover cosmetic damage (rips/tears in external packaging, crushing, etc). You MUST opt to insure your package at checkout to make a claim for damages upon arrival.

If you have chosen Flat Rate Insured shipping, you MUST make a claim of damage within 2 business days of receipt of delivery. Send all claims WITH PHOTO PROOF to claims@betterbatter.org. Failure to make claims in a timely fashion or provide photo proof will result in refusal of your claim, even if insured shipping is chosen.

 

Please note: Shipping fees are never refundable.  Shipping fees will be deducted from refunds on orders.

Please note: Items sold as in our Final Clearance section cannot be claimed for damage.

 

 

 INCORRECT ADDRESS/NONDELIVERY/STOLEN ITEMS/RETURN TO SENDER

It is very important for you to choose a shipping method that is safe, and where you will be available to receive the product. In general we do not cover nondelivery or other mistakes on your part. Please see below for details about restrictions on coverage for mistakes:

Incorrect Address: We are charged $16 for corrections to address. Prior to shipping, you may contact us at any time, and we will correct your address with no charge. After shipping we, where possible we will verify your address. If our system  offers a corrected address, we will edit your address to reflect the proper UPS or USPS address, without notification to you. If your address is tagged as incorrect after delivery, we will edit your shipping information in our system to avoid future delivery charges. We will not ship to an address that is tagged as incorrect/nondeliverable in our software.

If you need an address changed before shipping (for instance: Paypal used the wrong address, or you moved), we will be happy to adjust both your shipping and your account to reflect your requested change at no charge. Once your item ships, however, we cannot change your delivery without incurring a $17 change charge. You are free to request an invoice for this change, and once it is paid, we will make the change request with our shippers.

Nondelivery: If your package is returned to us as nondeliverable (this can happen if it is a nonexistent address, if you asked for signature service and were not available to sign, if you used a clearing house or delivery box and never picked the item up, or if you requested the item held for pickup and failed to pickup before the return deadline), we will have been charged for both delivery and return. Therefore we can neither refund your purchase, nor send it again. You may choose to request an invoice for the return fee and the redelivery cost, and once it is paid, we will be happy to reship your item.

General Nondelivery/Stolen Items: Once an item is marked as delivered in our system, the purchase is closed for delivery.  We do not reship items lost due to porch pirates. We will, however issue a claim for nondelivery with our shipping service. We can only advance a claim as far as they allow. If they refuse a claim, we will not reship the item or refund the purchase. If they cover the claim, we will reship or refund the purchase as directed by the service. Please note: occasionally items are delivered to the wrong address - and in this case the shipping service should be able to locate these and redeliver - or are hidden on the porch or other area of your property. Always check with a neighbor, check your property, and check with your local delivery person before contacting us!

Return to Sender: If we receive a package as Return To Sender for any reason, we will neither refund the purchase nor resend the package. You may choose to request an invoice for the return fee and the redelivery cost, and once it is paid, we will be happy to reship your item.

 

INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY

We do not offer international shipping. Please shop at Vitacost.com to ship to non US locations.
