Policies

Return Policy

1. We have a 100% Customer Satisfaction Policy. Any item can be returned within two weeks of receipt of shipment for a refund on the cost of goods (less shipping charges and applicable restock fee), if returned intact. Similarly, all returns must be received by us within 15 business days to qualify for a refund.

2. All subjective returns (where there has been no mistake from our end) will be assessed a 20% restocking fee, or a minimum of $10, whichever is greater.

3. Returns authorized beyond the two week period will be assessed a 30% restocking fee, or a minimum of $10 whichever is greater.

4. If an error has been made by us on a written order, we will gladly pay for re-shipment. All errors arising from miscommunication on verbal orders will be the sole responsibility of the customer and they will be accountable for return freight. Please submit orders in writing whenever possible.

5. All product returns require an authorization number. This R.A number must be clearly marked on the outside of the box. Boxes without this number may be refused at the cost of the shipper.

6. All returns are to be sent to our Canadian Warehouse for assessment. The statement ‘Goods Returning to Manufacturer’ must be stated on all packages. All returns must be shipped by ground Postal Service to avoid any customs and brokerage charges. If returned by any other shipping method, customers will be responsible for those charges.

7. All subjective returns must be returned in saleable condition. Partially used products will not be credited. If we do not receive the merchandise or if it is damaged, we will not issue a refund or credit.

Ordering Guidelines

1. All orders must be checked within 24 hours of receipt so that any discrepancies may be addressed.

2. Due to the volatile nature of the essential oils market, price commitment is made on the placement of order only. We shall do our best to keep our website updated on a daily basis.

3. Once an order has been confirmed we will not accept any additions or deletions. Please ensure that all orders are accurate prior to finalizing.

4. At all times, prices are effective on the date of your order only. Discounts or coupons that were not valid on the date of your order, cannot be applied.

Shipping

1. Our default shipping agent is Canada Post.

2. We do not operate our Shipping Department as a profit Center. Please note that your shipping cost is calculated on-line using an integrated Canada Post shipping module. Our Canada Post online quotes are estimates based on weight and volume calculations. We reserve the right to change the shipping charges. If this occurs you will be contacted for approval before your order is processed.

3. Orders are shipped from our central warehouse in Lively, Canada. We currently ship ground courier to both Canada and the United States.

4. The Organic Corner takes no responsibility for any loss, damages, or delay that may occur. Similarly, we must be notified should additional insurance be required. Without notification we ship products without insurance.

5. We currently do not require orders to be signed when delivered.
However should customers want the signature required option, a fee of $10.00 will be charged by Canada Post.

6. Essential Oils are classified as Hazardous Goods when shipped by air. Because of this only ground shipments are available for essential oils. Express shipments (Air) are available at cost on bottles and raw materials.

7. Back orders, though rare, are not automatically shipped. Regular ordering policies will apply on arrival of stock.

8. For environmental reasons, packing slips will not be shipped with any order. Customers are encouraged to use the emailed invoice as a guide instead.

Taxes

As of July 1st 2010, no person or company in Ontario will be tax exempt and will be charged a 13% tax rate.
