These are provided to ensure both parties are aware of and agree upon this arrangement to mutually protect and set expectations on our service.

1. General

Subject to stock availability. 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 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 or if you would prefer for us to process a refund.

1.1 Pre-Orders

A pre-order is an order placed for an item (listed in the store) that is not yet released or available for delivery. There will always be a release date or a scheduled date by when items will be received and delivered to you.

Please note that release dates are only estimates and are subject to change at any time. If there is a change in release date, we will do our best to notify you via email. You can also check release date updates in My Account – Pre-Order Details

You will be charged for the full amount of the pre-order at time of purchase. Pre-orders may be excluded from our free shipping policy at any time, and are exempt from our Pay on Delivery payment method.

To cancel a pre-order, please refer to our refund policy Once the order status is closed, we may not be able to amend your order.

Once the order has entered the fulfillment process or has been dispatched (for delivery), we cannot cancel. We request that you follow our return policy in this case.

2. Delivery Costs

Delivery costs are calculated during checkout, and are based on the destination or weight of the items in the order (in some instances).  You can opt to pay for regular shipping (standard 3 – 7 business days) or RUSH Shipping (next day or next business day).

Payment for delivery will be collected with the purchase or with the payment method selected.

The final price (shown at checkout) will be the final price for delivery and product cost to the customer. In some instances our promotions may allow for “Free Shipping / Delivery” and these can be changed, amended, or removed without prior notice.

Generally, orders sent to Tobago are in transit for 3 – 7 days, after they have been dispatched to our couriers for delivery.

Orders are usually dispatched (or sent to our courier) on a fixed dispatch (or shipping) day during the week.  Generally, all orders are processed on Fridays (weekly), and all orders are dispatched on Sundays (weekly).

Exceptions: SPEDTT RUSH shipping option allows your order to be dispatched almost immediately to ensure next day or next business day delivery.

NB: Delays may experienced by our couriers for situations or conditions unforeseen, such as natural disasters, national restrictions or any other reason we cannot prevent, or predict for any shipping option selected.  As far as possible you will be notified by email.  Any redress on shipping (or delivery) will be managed by the couriers independently.  Please review our Refund and Returns Policy.

Delivery change requests MUST be submitted by replying to your Order Confirmation email. Updating your address under My Account, does not affect orders already placed, but will be applied to all future orders.

Your item is always delivered to the SHIPPING ADDRESS entered ay checkout. In the event of any errors you have inputted in your address, the item may (1) continue to be delivered or (2) be returned to the store.

How to manage either of the two from occurring:

  • Verify the information as you enter your Shipping Address at checkout.
  • Review your order details, when you receive your order confirmation email
  • Confirm the address your item is being delivered to when the courier makes contact with you

Should an error of input still occur, you can do either of the following:

  • Respond to the email sent to you with your tracking number
  • Respond to your the email of your order confirmation
  • Request the courier to return the item to the store for further updates

Where the delivery address error is made on our end, all charges to address this error will be paid by mybamboohealth.com

4.5 Items Out Of Stock

If an item (within your order) is out of stock, we will dispatch the in-stock items (of your order) immediately and send the remaining items once they return to stock. However, you may also request a refund for the out of stock item under My Account – Orders.

4.6 Delivery Time Exceeded

Sometimes, even beyond our control delivery times (using any courier) can be extended beyond our intent or knowledge. In some cases, you can be notified in advance of a delay. In other cases we may not be able to advise as we too, are not made aware.

If delivery time has exceeded the approximate time, please contact us (by replying to your order confirmation email) so that we can conduct an investigation.

In the case of “pre-order” items, there may be additional delays beyond the approximate time originally shared or advertised. In most instances these are due to circumstances beyond our control. At times we may also received false positives (or arrival updates) from shipment companies.

While mybamboohealth will also alert you as needed on all delays, as soon as we have been made aware, there may be some instances where we are not given advance notices. In these instances, we will fulfill orders as soon as they arrive and have them delivered to you.
