Shipping & Returns

Shipping & Returns
Our primary carrier is United Parcel Service (UPS).  We use their Ground service and can ship anywhere in the Contiguous USA.  On exception we may use Federal Express for specific co-branded products that are fulfilled by our online partner(s). 

Shipping Costs
Shipping costs are calculated in real time during the check-out for your purchase.  Rates vary by weight, state and postal code.  The rates represented include residential charges.  No handling fees are applied.

Orders are shipped five days a week (no service on Saturday or Sunday) between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. UPS only delivers to street addresses. Please do not use PO boxes as this will cause delays and possibly cancellation/return of your order.  Please allow seven (7) business days for delivery of your order. A confirmation receipt will be provided to you, so that you may track the status of your order.

You may cancel or change your order prior to shipment. Note that updated orders are subject to price changes and a change of a delivery date may not guarantee the availability of your desired items. Cancellation of orders is not permitted once the ordered products have shipped.

Receipt of Goods
Delivery will be made to the indicated address.  You are not required to accept the delivery in person.  By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions you are authorizing Effie’s to deliver and leave your order at the indicated address without a signature or confirmation of receipt. If we are unable to deliver the order to you for any reason, the order will be canceled and you will be refunded all shipping fees. Your order will arrive with an invoice that will list all of the items you have received and were billed for. If you have a question with your order, please Contact us.

Effie’s does not accept returns or exchanges.  In the event that your shipment or the products are defective, please Contact us with the “Best By” date stamped on the product and we will replace your order or issue you a refund at our discretion.
