Shipping FAQ

 

Flatpacks and orders over $49 always ship free to destinations within the US. Non-flatpack orders under $49 ship for $7.95. See below for additional details and information on expedited shipping options.

 

Free No-Rush Shipping on Flatpack orders <$49

Flatpack Free No-Rush Shipping is an economy service delivered by The United States Postal Service (USPS), which may not provide tracking. On average, Free No-Rush Shipping orders are packed up and shipped within 48 hours and then typically reach their destination 3 to 8 business days after the date of shipment. If you need tracking or faster delivery, please pick a paid shipping method.

We are hearing of select incidents of Flatpack shipments arriving with postage due. This happens when a local postmaster mistakenly determines our Flatpack mailers to be too large for the envelope shipping rate. If you've been charged a shipping fee, please contact us about it so we can get you refunded.

Standard Shipping

  • Flat rate of $5.95 on Flatpack orders under $49
  • Flat rate of $7.95 for all other orders under $49
  • Free on orders over $49*

 

On average, Standard Shipping orders are packed up and shipped within 48 hours and then typically reach their destination 3 to 5 business days after the date of shipment. Estimated shipping time based on your location will be provided during checkout.

Most of our Standard Shipping packages are delivered by the USPS. USPS is struggling with increased package volume and decreased revenue, each of which is related to COVID-19. These economy shipping services are the most prone to delay. To minimize the chance of delivery delays for more urgent orders, we encourage customers to select UPS Ground or another premium shipping option.

*$49 threshold must be met after any promotion or discount is applied

 

UPS Ground

  • Flat rate of $14.95 for orders under $49
  • Flat rate of $9.95 for orders over $49

On average, UPS Ground orders are packed up and shipped within 48 hours and then typically reach their destination 2-3 business days after the date of shipment. While we cannot guarantee a delivery date, UPS Ground tends to be faster and more reliable than free or Standard Shipping services that rely on USPS. Estimated shipping time based on your location will be provided during checkout. Note this service is not offered on orders with only Flatpacks under $49.

 

Premium Shipping

If your order is urgent, please select a premium shipping option to have your order packaged for shipment within 24 hours, guaranteed:

  • Express (UPS 2nd Day): flat rate of $24.95 on all orders
  • Next Day (UPS Next Day): variable based on order size and location

UPS delivers 2nd Day and Next Day packages Monday - Friday, excluding postal holidays. Due to setbacks from the impacts of COVID-19, Next Day and 2nd Day delivery is no longer guaranteed by UPS, but we have seen only a few cases where a package arrived just one day later than the Next Day and 2nd Day estimate. 

 

Canada

We are happy to ship to our customers in Canada via UPS Economy International flat rate shipping. Orders are packed up and shipped within 48 hours and then reach their destination 6-10 business days after the date of shipment. 

UPS Canada Economy flat rate pricing (all values USD):

  • Orders less than $49.99: $14.95 shipping
  • Orders $50 - $99.99: $24.95 shipping
  • Orders $100+: Free Shipping

That's right! Free shipping to Canada is back!

Customs duties may apply. We apologize that we are no longer able to offer duty paid options to Canada. All arrival times are estimated and subject to customs delays. There is no delivery date guarantee option for shipments to Canada.

 

Global Shipping

Unfortunately, we do not offer shipping to countries beyond the United States and Canada at this time.  

 

Third Party Logistics/Freight Forwarders

We only guarantee direct shipments to recipients in the US, Canada, and US territories. The use of, and shipment to, any freight forwarder or 3PL is entirely at the customers risk. The Spice House accepts no responsibility for such orders once they have left our facility. By having an order shipped to a third party Logistics company/freight forwarder, the purchaser agrees to these terms, and shall hold harmless The Spice House, for any loss, theft, or destruction of said shipments.

 

APO and FPO

We are delighted—honored, in fact—to ship our spices to APO and FPO addresses, wherever they may be in the world. These orders tend to get priority handling.
