Ordering and Shipping
Shipping Options,Charges and Shipping Times
Our default method of shipping is USPS ground: shipping is calculated based on item weight. We also offer USPS priority and overnight shipping for an additional charge. If you would prefer a shipment via another method please call (1-800-315-2029) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If applicable, for a small charge we will ship via the terms and carriers that you request.
For money orders, we cannot ship your package until the payment has arrived. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
Effective immediately (2/14/2005) we are suspending any orders outside of the U.S.A.. We apologize sincerely as we would like to accommodate our international customers but Texas laws, combined with increasingly tighter post 9/11 US Postal and Customs restrictions, have made the prospect costly, time-consuming and, in the case of some products, potentially illegal. Please visit our Education page for more information on Texas laws.
UPS Next Day Air or Fed X Overnight shipments may be available for some orders. Please inquire about a specific rush shipment by emailing email@example.com or calling 1-800-315-2029.
Once you have placed on order with us you will receive a confirmation via email. The confirmation will include a reference number.
For item back orders or rush delivery, we must have confirmation from you to complete an order. If we do not receive a reply from you within 48 hours of email notification, your order is subject to cancellation. Once we have received your confirmation, consider your order processed and shipped.
To service you better we do not process your order in real time; we only accept your payment when we have the items you want and are ready to ship. Rest assured that all payment information that you give us is secured.
You will be notified via email if any of the items on your order are not in stock. You will have the option to cancel your order, receive partial orders or receive your entire shipment at once when the back ordered item is available. We never charge your credit card until your items are on their way to you.
You may cancel your order if we have not yet shipped it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 1-800-315-2029.
Texas residents only are subject to a state tax of 8.25%.
We gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards. Your account will never be billed until your order has been shipped. We also accept money orders but we cannot ship your items until the money order has arrived.
Please let us assure you that we do not collect personal information from you for any other reason than to verify your payment method and shipping needs. We currently do not have a notification list (electronic or postal) but, in the future, we plan to add an elective list. Besides the credit card processing company and our web service provider, no one but us will be able to view your information. We respect you and your right to privacy.
If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 1-800-315-2029. Your credit card will show a charge to “Forbidden Fruit”. All merchandise will be shipped to you in plain packaging with our address and logo listed as the sender unless requested otherwise.
We really want you to be satisfied with your purchases. Our descriptions and pictures should give you a good understanding of each product, but should you have further questions we will be happy to answer them via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (1-800-315-2029.) Due to the personal nature of our products we do not generally accept any returns or exchanges. We are not a huge corporation and cannot afford to throw away good products; and we would never resell the items if they were returned for an exchange. All mechanical items will be hygienically tested with batteries or running electricity before they are sent.
If your order arrives damaged or you are unsatisfied with the shipment for another reason, please contact us at 1-800-315-2029 and one of our customer service representatives will assist you.
It is safe to shop with us; we use a secure server (which means all the information you send us is coded for safety). If your browser does not comply with secure servers, we will gladly take your order over the telephone.
