Art of Kava Shipping and Return Policy

Shipping Policy

Ordering and Shipping Timelines

Orders placed before 11am (ET) will likeky be processed and ready to ship the same day. Outside of any issues out of control, this is the norm. Orders placed after 11am (ET), will ship the following business day. There are no Saturday shipments.

We ship in order that orders are placed. This means that if we get a large influx of orders, even if you pay for overnight or 2 day shipping, it is possible that the order may be shipped the next day. Paying extra for next day or 2 day shipping does not bump you forward in line. Thank you for understanding.

Orders placed after 10am Friday – Sunday are processed over the weekend and ready to ship Monday (excluding holidays). There are no Saturday shipments. Orders made after 3pm are considered being made the following day for the above purposes. We will have already made our shipment delivery for the day. So orders after 3pm will be delivered to the post office the following day. If the next day is Friday, the Friday/weekend rules apply.

This means your order will be processed and shipped within 1-3 days depending on date and time of order.

One caviat to the above ship times is holidays, black Friday, cyber Monday, and the days between. All orders on holidays will not be processed until the next available business day and will be processed in the order they were purchased. No exceptions. Orders on the days between the Friday after Thanksgiving and the following Monday will also follow these rules. The volume of orders during this time may push out the shipments of the orders between and on those days to 3 to 5 days afterward. A lot of orders take time. With limited manpower to process the orders, it takes more time during this period to get all of them out. Please note that we are working to get these out as fast as possible. If there is an issue with your order, we will inform you as soon as we are aware to ask what you would like to do. We will await your response. If we do not hear back in 2 to 3 days we will follow up, until we've contacted you about the matter. We do this because during this time, there are deals that will vanish if your order is automatically refunded. You may want to swap out items etc to get the order through with the deals intact and we do not want you to miss out on those. 

You will receive an email confirming your order and a second email notifying you when your order has been processed and completed.

When placing your order, please review your shipping address carefully to ensure it is the right address. If, when you receive your order confirmation email you realize you have entered the wrong address, please contact us immediately at info@artofkava.com and will amend your order accordingly provided your order has not yet shipped.

Shipping Rates

The rate charged for the shipping of your order is calculated at checkout. Shipping rates will depend on the number of products ordered, the weight of those products, your shipping address and location, and the Shipping Carrier and the preferred shipment method you select.

You will have a chance to review your order and be shown the cost of shipping before confirming your purchase on the final page of the checkout process. At that point you will have a chance to amend your shipping option, and/or to not place your order should you decide not to proceed with a purchase.

Shipping Carriers

We use the following carriers to deliver our orders depending on your location and shipping method selected:

  • USPS
  • UPS
  • FedEx

The preferred method of shipping of most customers is USPS and at check out you will be asked to select from the following:

  • USPS First Class Mail (3-7 Days)
  • USPS Priority Mail (2-3 Days)
  • USPS Express Mail (1-2 Days)
  • USPS First Class International (7-12 Business Days)
  • USPS Priority Mail International (5-7 Business Days)
  • USPS Priority Express International (3-5 Business Days)

Please note: while USPS First Class Mail is the cheaper shipping option from the above list, with USPS First Class Mail there is no insurance for loss or theft and claims cannot be filed to recover your loss if this option is selected. Similarly, for some orders shipped by USPS First Class Mail a tracking number is not provided. It is highly recommend that you choose USPS Priority that allows you to file a claim in the chance that something was to happen to your package and if you wish to track shipment of your order

You will receive an email stating ‘Your Order is Completed’ when your order has been processed and shipped.

Order Tracking

Once Art of Kava has shipped your order, and your chosen carrier has scanned your package at pick-up your package and order is in the hands of your chosen shipping carrier.

When a tracking # is provided by the shipping carrier, we will update your order with the tracking information and you will receive an email notifying you of this tracking number. This email will come from Ship Station, our shipping software platform. If you do not receive this email in your inbox, please check your spam folder as it is sometimes diverted there.

Please note: some orders using 1st Class USPS mail will not have tracking numbers.

After your chosen shipping carrier has scanned your package at pickup, Art of Kava, we are no longer responsible for your package in transit. Any questions related to your order status, the location of your package in transit, and/or expected delivery date should be first directed to your selected shipping carrier. Make sure to reference your tracking number if you have one.

Delivered Packages

Art of Kava does not accept responsibility for packages that have been marked ‘delivered’ by USPS. Please be sure you are shipping to a secure location. If tracking information indicates a package has been delivered and you have not received it, we recommend checking with your family members and neighbors to make sure they did not receive or accept by mistake or in your absence, before contacting your Shipping Carrier for further information.

International Orders

Free shipping is not available for international orders.

International orders can but don't always take up to 10 business days to process. International orders take longer to process due to the large amount of fraud that occurs on these kinds of orders. We're required to hold certain shipments longer by our merchant processor to minimize risk of fraud.

International customers are responsible for all import duties, customs and excise duties or local taxes charged per your country. International customers are also advised to check as to whether there are any restrictions related to the online purchase and shipment or import of kava in their respective country. Art of Kava is not responsible for any orders placed that are seized by customs in your specific country.

Back Orders

When you buy kava online in our store, if an item goes on back-order we will ship you the part of your order that is in stock. When the item becomes available we will ship you the rest of your order. You will not be charged any additional shipping and handling for the second shipment.

Very pleased...

I love this kava. Having said this, I found at the bottom of the bag, mixed with the kava, about a dozen small different sizes white stuff, shaped like eggs. There not eggs. They are filled with kava. What are these?

Hey Chris! Thanks for reaching out and answering our reply with pics to this for more info. This kava is packed in bricks and when it's blended it has to be broken up. Sometimes those stay in clumps or balls. When you make your kava tho they'll mix like normal. Apologies for the confusion and super glad they're not eggs haha!

Smooth

Really mild and enjoyable kava! Not so heavy but still able to enjoy all the mental benefits kava brings!

Love Kelai Heady Kava

Love Kelai Heady Kava - Just what I needed with my daily Kratom dosing, monthly subscriber from now on, recommend cold 2% milk with chocolate Nesquik mix for chugging, otherwise nauseated feeling for me

Awesome!

Definitely one of the stronger ones iv tried from here! I enjoyed it, it’s definitely a late evening relax mode type kava. Made me feel super happy and relaxed.

Goodbye anxiety

Works wonder for melting the stress of an anxiety ridden workday. Highly recommend!
