Where do you ship from?
We ship from St. Louis, MO in the United States 🙂
How long do orders take to ship?
We ship 1-2x per week. Once your order is paid you’ll be added to the next batch and it will be shipped within days! If you are in a particular hurry to get your order feel free to include a Note stating this when checking out. We’ll do our best to get it especially quick if so!
How much does shipping cost and what service do you ship with?
We ship our orders using USPS and offer both First Class & Priority Speed shipping. We try to ship all orders as soon as possible and your choice of First Class or Priority will not change the date that we ship, the difference comes down to the speed in which USPS will handle the package.
First Class shipping costs $4 and Priority costs $8. We offer FREE first class shipping on orders over $50, as well as the option to upgrade to Priority speed for only $4 if your order total is over $50. The transit time for First Class and Priority are dependent on USPS’ service speed and will vary depending on where you’re at in relation to us (we ship from St. Louis, MO). First Class generally takes 3-5 days to arrive and Priority will usually reach you in 2-3 days following the date we ship.
International shipping starts at $15 but will vary based on the weight of your package as well as the country we are shipping to. Most international orders can be shipped for $15, and if additional postage cost is needed we will contact you via Email. Transit time for international packages vary significantly depending on your region.
What Payment Methods do you accept?
Most of our orders are paid by credit/debit card through Venmo, CashApp or Zelle – all of which are apps which allow you to send money safely via a credit or debit card without any fees. To pay with one of these methods send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, message our Facebook Page Eternity in a Box Botanicals, or message the owner’s FB account (Zach Zachston), and we’ll send you all the transfer details promptly!
If you’d like to order on-site, without having to send payment through the above-listed apps, we recommend using eCheck, which can be found at the checkout page. This is a popular payment method with our regular customers and is super easy. It functions similarly to an online credit card payment, but you enter the checking account info (the same info on the bottom of a check) on the Secure Checkout page. It takes ~5 days for the eCheck to ‘clear’ in our bank. You’ll get an email update once it’s cleared and we’ll ship soon following.
We also regularly receive Money Orders, Checks & Bank Wire Transfers- all of which are options you can choose at the checkout. PayPal is also an option for larger bulk orders and international special orders.
Eternity in a box is committed to protecting your privacy. We promise we won’t sell, trade or rent any of your personal information to anyone else, ever! Any information you provide to us will only be used to process your orders or to provide you with requested information.
Just so you know, here’s how we use the information we collect:
- To process your order and to contact you about your order, we ask for your name, email and mailing addresses, phone number, credit card number and expiration date.
- We do need your email address to communicate with you about your order, including backorders and tracking information. We will only send emails to you if you have signed up for our Newsletter.
- We also collect a little statistical information that helps us understand how you use eternityinabox.com, to help us make improvements. This information only includes things like which browser you use and which pages you visited on our site. No information that we gather gives us any personal information about you.
By the way, you must be at least 18 years of to order, or get your parent’s permission before shopping on Eternity in a Box!
What is your return policy?
Returning a Delivered Package…
We offer are happy to offer exchanges on unopened and still sealed packages, though we ask that we be contacted immediately upon the receiving of the items if a return/exchange is desired. Generally we request the customer pay for return shipping ($5 on average) given the cancellation is by their choice and not because of a fault of our own.
Order cancellation is always allowed if requested before the order has been shipped. Please contact us immediately if you want to cancel an order! When we are processing orders we are not always by the computer to receive emails, nor by the phone to receive calls about cancellation. If you decide to cancel please reach out to us promptly! If we have already shipped your order we will have to wait until we receive the package back before processing a refund (though we’d still be happy to offer a refund once we receive the package back).
Packages not Received…
If there is any issue during shipment we are happy to work with you to resolve it ? In the event of a postal error, we can generally file a claim with them and get the value of the package credited to us, and we would be happy to resend or refund you in an event such as this. We always get tracking numbers for each of our parcels, this helps to minimize errors during the transit process.
Please ensure the delivery location for your packages is safe and free from the potential of theft…! If USPS marks a package as ‘Delivered’, then we are unable to file a claim for the returned value (given that the postman scans it upon putting at the delivery location, USPS is no longer liable for the safety of the package). There are instances where a package is marked as Delivered and for whatever reason is still at the local post office branch, so if you can’t find your package and it is marked as delivered, please do call your local post office branch to see if they have it there.
Unfortunately, we are Unable to offer a refund for a package which has been marked as delivered. When we ship a package we are passing the responsibility onto USPS, when they mark it as delivered the responsibility goes to the customer to ensure that it is promptly brought inside or delivered in a safe location. If you have an issue with a package being marked delivered and you cannot find it at your residence, and the address you provided us was correct, please do reach out to us and we’ll do what we can to help!
These instances are exceedingly rare. We ship between 1 dozen and 100 packages per week, and we only have missing packages arise less than once a year. Your order is always safe with us 🙂
