Route package protection is the only option to have damaged products replaced or refunded. When opting out of Route Package Protection, you are agreeing that The Sugar Art is not responsible for any shipping damages that occur. If Route is not added to the purchase, the customer will need to file a claim with USPS.COM (please be advised they rarely approve any damaged claims, which is why we have partnered with Route Exclusively on shipping issues).
SECTION 13 - FILE CLAIM FOR DAMAGED PRODUCTS WITH ROUTE
You will need your Order Number and detailed photos of all damages. Please be advised of Route's policies that are emailed to all customers who purchase in regard to their processing times.
SECTION 14 - ROUTE INSURANCE POLICIES
When adding Route to your purchase, Route sends an automatic email with all of their guidelines and instructions. Please locate that email (check your spam folder) to understand how you file missing package and damaged claims.
The Sugar Art is proud to partner with Route, the leader in package protection and tracking solutions. By selecting Route+ at checkout your order will be protected from damage, loss*, or theft. In the unfortunate case that your order never comes or is broken upon arrival, you can easily file a claim with Route and receive a replacement or be fully reimbursed. We are excited to offer this service to you and we highly recommend you use Route+ package protection at checkout.
SECTION 15 - MISSING PACKAGE INSTRUCTIONS (ROUTE POLICY)
PACKAGES MARKED "DELIVERED:"
Claims for packages marked "delivered" yet not received and where there is no evidence of “porch piracy” must be made 5 days after “delivery date” but no longer than 15 days to ensure it was not misdelivered or easily found around the premises."
Claims for packages presumed to be lost (where the status is not "delivered") must be filed after 7 days (20 days for international) and within 30 days from the last checkpoint. To locate the checkpoint, click on your USPS Tracking Link sent from The Sugar Art and click "Tracking History."
USPS will provide dated updates under this section, and once it has been 7 days without an update - you are free to file a missing package claim. TO FILE A CLAIM WITH ROUTE, PLEASE VISIT: CLAIMS.ROUTE.COM
SECTION 16 - SHIPPING POLICIES
The Sugar Art exclusively ships with USPS or UPS, and we do not offer any other shipping couriers at this time. Flat Rate Shipping includes both Priority Mail and First Class, depending on the weight of the order.
During checkout, the customer is able to choose the Courier they wish to receive delivery from, unless they select Free Shipping. When qualifying for Free Shipping, The Sugar Art will select the courier we feel is best for this order.
The Sugar Art Inc. has no control over shipping couriers and cannot control what happens with the weather or pandemic. We have no control over the courier's delays and are unable to refund shipping fees for those delays. All shipping couriers continue to experience delays. Please follow their websites for updates on their shipping times / delays.
PACKAGE PROTECTION INSURANCE:
When opting out of Route Insurance, you are understanding The Sugar Art is not liable for missing, delayed or damaged packages. Please add Route Insurance to your checkout if you would like insurance on your order.
Packages can take up to 10-14 business days to be delivered. Delivery dates are not guaranteed by The Sugar Art. Shipping delays are subject to happen, and The Sugar Art is unable to guarantee any and all ship-by dates.
The Sugar Art is unable to refund shipping charges for any reason, including delayed, return to sender or missing packages.
RETURN TO SENDER ORDERS:
"Return To Sender" orders will be refunded at the cost of the item excluding shipping, or you can pay to have it shipped to the correct address for an additional $10 shipping and processing fee. The Sugar Art team does not alter any shipping addresses in any way, the customer is responsible for ensuring the address is correct. If the customer needs changes made to their shipping address, those changes must be submitted in writing to email@example.com.
MISSING & DELAYED ORDERS
Deliveries can take up to 10-14 business days, so please be patient with all shipping couriers. When opting out of Route Insurance, The Sugar Art is not responsible for any lost, delayed or damaged items. Route covers missing packages and damages to products, they also assist in tracking your order. We are unable to refund Route Package Protection Fees, as those fees are paid directly to Route.
WHEN ADDING ROUTE
INTERNATIONAL & UNITED STATES:
If a package states "delivered" by USPS tracking information and it is not delivered, the customer must first reach out to their local post-master to investigate. The local post-master has access to GPS Coordinates and can advise where a courier was standing when they marked the package as delivered. The Sugar Art team is unable to make phone calls on missing packages.
If a customer purchased ROUTE and USPS is unable to locate their box, the customer must file a claim at: CLAIMS.ROUTE.COM Route will process a replacement package to be sent, but processing times will apply. Route can also process a refund if the customer prefers a refund over a replacement, but the refund does not include shipping fees or Route Fees. The Sugar Art will not refund any shipping fees under any circumstances.
Deliveries can take up to 10 business days with USPS, so please be patient with the couriers.
Per ROUTE Policies, which all customers receive via email upon purchase, you are required to wait 7-days from each "checkpoint" that is found on your USPS tracking link. To locate the steps of the delivery, please click "tracking history." If you see no updates within the last 7-days of checking the link, you are free to file a claim with Route at the link below. Route will deny claims if there has been a checkpoint in the last 7-days, so please follow these policies.
WHEN OPTING OUT OF ROUTE
UNITED STATES :
This policy only applies to USA orders that did not add Route to the purchase. If you added Route to your purchase, see section above for instructions. On missing or delayed packages, the customer must submit an inquiry with their local USPS office. The Sugar Art is unable to call on missing or delayed packages. We are also no longer submitting claims to USPS, as they are rarely approved. If a package is damaged, the customer will be required to submit damaged claims to USPS.COM - again, they are very rarely processed and approved. This is why we have partnered with Route on all Shipping Concerns.
- When opting out of ROUTE, you are agreeing The Sugar Art is not responsible for any missing, delayed or damaged packages.
This policy only applies to international orders that did not add Route to the purchase. If you added Route to your purchase, see section above for instructions. On missing or delayed packages for international orders that did not add Route, you must allow 4-6 weeks at minimum to receive the package during the Covid-19 pandemic. If after 6-weeks you do not receive the package, The Sugar Art will submit an online claim to USPS. It is not a guarantee the package will be found or refunded by the courier. If the Courier does not approve the claim, there will be no refund on this purchase. This is non-negotiable.
If the USPS claim is not approved, The Sugar Art will issue a refund on all product cost for the order as a one-time courtesy only. After this courtesy, The Sugar Art will no longer offer refunds on missing packages that are not covered by Route Package Protection.
- When opting out of Route, the customer agrees The Sugar Art is not responsible for any missing, delayed or damaged packages.
SECTION 17 - FORGOTTEN DISCOUNT CODES AND FREE SHIPPING
We are unable to honor discount codes that are forgotten during checkout. To submit a discount code, please click SHOW ORDER SUMMARY in the checkout cart and place your code there. Due to limited customer service, we are no longer able to offer this service. Discount codes are unable to be stacked, including Reward Points accrued. Shopify only allows 1 discount code per transaction. If the customer mistakenly chooses to use Rewards Points instead of discount codes, we are unable to reverse those points or honor the discount code. All codes entered in during checkout (including rewards) are final.
Free Shipping (applicable to United States only) automatically applies once there is $150 worth of SA product cost only in the cart. If you enter in a discount code and the amount drops below $150 USD, the option will not populate. Final payment must be submitted at $150 for free shipping to qualify. It will not appear on the first screen of your checkout, please go to the next screen and select FREE SHIPPING.
T-Shirts do not count toward the free shipping threshold, as they are manufactured and shipped by a separate drop shipping company (SPOD). All other products sold on the website will count toward the threshold.
SECTION 18 - REWARDS PROGRAM
Rewards Points only begin after a Reward Account is created. We do not retroactively add Rewards Points from previous purchases. All instructions for our rewards program can be found at the link below.
