Sparrow Coffee Fulfillment Policy
All orders are subject to stock availability and coffee roast scheduling. Some of our offerings are rare and one-off seasonal products. We try to maintain accurate stock counts on our website but from time-to-time, there may be a stock discrepancy, and we will not be able to fulfill all your items at the time of purchase. In this instance, we will fulfill the available products to you, and contact you about whether you would prefer to await restocking of the back-ordered item(s), or if you would prefer a substitution, or if you would prefer for us to process a refund.
2. Shipping Costs
Shipping costs are calculated during checkout based on the weight of the package, the destination the order is being shipped to, and the carrier service in charge of the delivery. We will at times offer cost-free shipping, or reduced shipping cost, if certain volume or dollar criteria is met. Payment for shipping, when accessed, will be collected at checkout.
Customers are responsible for import fees on international shipments with the corresponding shipping service, except in cases of wholesale accounts.
3. Refunds and Returns
A refund can be issued towards a customer’s credit card for all or part of the cost of a purchased item. In some cases, customers may be refunded for their purchase without the need for a return of the product(s). This means that the customer is not required to send the item back to the fulfillment center. Some items that are not eligible for return may be eligible for a refund.
4. Delivery Terms
