Payments are processed using either Stripe for major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, etc.), or PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account in order to make a purchase. However, if you have a PayPal account, payment can be sent directly from your account. Simply follow the checkout steps on PayPal’s secure site to complete the payment process, just as you would for any other web order.
If paying with your PayPal account, please make sure your address is correct on PayPal before finalizing your order. The Farm is not responsible for shipping to an address that is listed incorrectly on your PayPal account.
All orders originating in California are subject to the statewide sales tax rate of 7.25%
Orders are shipped within 1 - 3 days after receiving payment, and shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
Orders placed Friday through Sunday are processed the following Monday.
Packages weighing 1 - 8 ounces are shipped via USPS First Class Mail when possible (2 -7 days delivery time from date of shipment). First class shipping cost is $4.00 anywhere in the United States. Note that independent of weight, due to the thickness of the items, first class parcel rates will apply. Typically this option will only be used for a single bar of soap, or a few lip balms.
To reduce shipping costs, packages weighing more than 8 ounces are shipped using Regional Priority Mail (2-3 days transit time).
Large orders containing up to 8 bars of soap will usually be shipped in the same box in an effort to keep shipping costs to a minimum.
An exception is that gift baskets MUST SHIP SEPARATELY. Gift baskets take up an entire shipping box on their own.
Overseas shipping is by special arrangement only. Please contact us prior to making an international order. Packages weighing up to 4 pounds are shipped using USPS First Class International mail. Rates vary by destination.
Packages weighing between 4 - 8 pounds will be shipped Priority Mail International, in Flat Rate boxes.
We strongly suggest that customers outside the United States contact us for a customized shipping quote prior to ordering.
International packages should be received in 7 - 10 business days. However, packages may be delayed, beyond our control, by customs enforcement in the receiving country, and may take in excess of 30 days for delivery.
Customs duties and taxes are the sole responsibility of the international consumer. We are not responsible for customs fees your package(s) may incur. These fees are imposed by the receiving country. Curbstone Valley Farm has no control over duties and taxes assessed outside of the United States.
We have estimated shipping costs as accurately as possible, however, USPS rates are subject to change beyond our control.
