Enrollment will open to new subscribers on December 12th! When slots are sold out, a "sold out" button will replace the 'buy now' button. You can sign up for first notification of enrollment slots by signing up to the interest list below!
As we continue to accommodate more signups, the following schedule will be applied:
1. NEW subscription signups will open starting the first or second Saturday of each month. An email reminder will go out with the exact date/time as well as instructions on how to sign up.
2. The boxes for the same month will ship around the the last week of each month. They may ship earlier depending on various factors. However, if there is for any reason any delay in shipment, subscribers will all be notified in advance.
**This means the month you sign up for will be the month you receive! i.e. November signups will receive the November box**
3. The box price is $25 per month. Shipping & handling domestically is a flat $4 and international shipping is $14 - please select this correct corresponding shipping rate during checkout
4. You will be billed for your first box the date you place the order. All future boxes will be billed on the 17th of each month.
5. You may cancel your subscription up until the 14th of the month (3 days before payment is charged) . After this point, your order will ship as scheduled and any cancellations will apply to the following month. To cancel, please email your wish to cancel along with your name on the account and most recent order number to email@example.com -- I kindly ask that you do not cancel via Paypal billing agreement as I am unable to reactivate your account and you will have to wait to re-enroll again if this is a mistake! (**note CA residents have the option to cancel at any time via their customer portal)
6. For all first time subscribers - if you cancel after one month, you will be charged the $35 rate for standalone boxes. However, if you have gone at least 2 consecutive months without cancelling, you will be able to cancel penalty free before the 14th of the month.
**Please note - once you unsubscribe/cancel your subscription, you must wait for another open slot if you plan on subscribing again**
7. Karats earned in shop are not applicable towards the subscription box but Karats earned from the purchase of the subscription box can be applied to other purchases in shop including Double Dip orders. Karats are non transferable and are not connected to your Etsy account.
8. Please note that for payment, Paypal balances and prepaid cards will likely not work. This is due to encrypting on store-bought cards that will not allow them to be used for transactions of a recurring nature, such as the box. Please make sure you have a valid credit card/debit card attached to your paypal account.
9. Customer is responsible for any updates in shipping address and billing information - you are able to update your shipping and billing information under your account under 'manage subscription' (This is a separate dashboard than your regular account - you must go into manage subscription to update) -- however, if you change your address AFTER the 17th of the month when orders are created OR after your initial payment and order placement, you MUST contact customer support to ensure change has been made.
10. All packages returned due to customer address entry error will be either refunded for the product price less shipping cost OR reshipped at buyer's expense.
Note -- if you are international and changing your address to domestic or vice versa, you must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your shipping rate adjusted.
11. If payment is not received by the 23rd of the month, your box for the month is not guaranteed and reserved. Please make sure any payment issues are resolved by this date. Please note that any major changes to Paypal including switching Paypal accounts or switching from Paypal to a credit card will require a manual update. (You may switch your default cards within Paypal at anytime - this does not require action on our part) -- If you need assistance with extending your payment window or updating payment, please email us at email@example.com
12. Enrolling in the subscription box gives you members-only perks to the Double Dip which is an opportunity to buy additional items from the box and any leftover stock from previous boxes. By subscribing, you agree to receiving communications about these events in addition to occasional surveys that are completely optional. You my unsubscribe to any mailing list at any time by scrolling down and selecting 'unsubscribe' from our email list service.
13. If you have any issues, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for resolution. I kindly ask for 1-3 business days for a response.
