Returns and Refunds
1. For all Products- Many of the Company’s products are temperature sensitive, and for
this reason Seller provides all Buyers with tracking numbers. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to
understand the temperature sensitive nature of the products ordered (mostly gourmet) and ensure
proper care of the products ordered. If the Buyer’s order has been damaged during delivery due to
temperature, the Company will issue a refund if the Buyer provides photographic evidence of the spores
within five (5) days of the products being delivered. Such photographic evidence must be under a
microscope to allow the Company to ensure there are no viable spores remaining. A spore will be
deemed viable so long as it is not cracked, fragmented or missing pieces. The Company will not provide
any returns or refunds for products ruined by Buyer’s negligence, including failure to bring the product
into a controlled environment upon delivery. In addition, the Company reserves the right to delay
delivery if such delivery may result in the spores being damaged by extreme weather conditions.
2. Spore Syringes and Gourmet Liquid Cultures- The Company takes great care in shipping
purchased products. However, if a syringe is broken during transit, do not hesitate to take photos and
provide such photos to our email, below. If the pictures are received and the syringes are damaged to
the point of disrupting the essential function of keeping the solution airtight and dispensing the solution,
the Company will deliver a replacement product to the courier for shipment within five (5) business days
after notification. You may request a refund if the replacement package has not been delivered to the
courier for shipment within five (5) business days.
Additionally, if the order you received is incorrect, please take a picture of the full order and send to our
support email below with the “subject” line as: “Incorrect order #[Your order number here].” If
applicable, the Company will pay for shipping to return the incorrect contents of the package to the
Seller and to send out the proper products, upon delivery of the incorrect order. Return shipping must
contain a tracking number and be sent via first class mail unless the returned order is over 1 pound (16
ounces) in which case priority shipping may be used. The Company will provide a refund only if shipment
of the proper products is not possible or if such replacement product will not be delivered to you within
two (2) weeks.
The Company accepts no liability if U.S. Customs seizes your package. After delivery of the products to
the courier for shipment, all liability shifts to the Buyer and no refund will be given.
3. Spore Swab Reship Policy- The Seller will only send replacement spore swabs if the
spores on the swab become unusable prior to delivery. If the outer packaging containing the spore
swabs is damaged, please contact us to ensure your swabs have not been damaged. If the Company is
unable to refill the original order, you may exchange the damaged goods for an item of equal value, or
the Company will issue a refund for the missing item. Note: If you ordered a bundle swab deal and only
one swab was compromised, and could not be reshipped in a timely manner, a refund for the price of
the damaged swab will be issued at the rate you purchased it. For example, if the bulk deal was
$10/swab but normal listing price for a single swab is $15, you will only be refunded $10 for the
4. Gourmet Wedge Return/Reship Policy- Upon opening your package, please evaluate
the seal at the top of the wedge container. Without unwrapping or disturbing the clear seal on the top,
visually assess the wrapping to ensure it is wrapped around the entire top of the container at least once.
If the wrapping is no longer sealing the top of the container, please immediately take pictures of the
product and send them to our email with the subject line “Compromised Wedge Container”. After
ensuring the seal is intact, please evaluate the wedge container to ensure there are no cracks or holes in
the container itself. If there are cracks or holes in the container, immediately document such damage
and provide photo evidence to our email below. If the Company determines the damage to the wedge
container is significant enough that the product may be contaminated, the Company will send a
replacement product to you. Shipment of the replacement product may take up to two (2) weeks for
some gourmet cultures, as they are best made fresh or the Company will provide a refund for the
5. Shop Items- If the products integrity is compromised during shipment and deemed
unusable, the Company will send a replacement product. In such instances, replacement will only occur
if the Buyer provides photo evidence of the damaged packaging and product and sends such evidence to
our customer support email within three (3) days of receiving the package. Most reshipments will be
delivered to the courier for shipment within five (5) business days, unless an announcement postponing
shipments has been posted on the Company’s blog page prior to the return claim being received by the
Company. The Company’s blog page can be found here: [insert link]. If replacement products are
unavailable the Company will issue a full refund for the damaged goods.
6. Customer Error- If you require the Company to reship any products due to Buyer error,
for example providing the wrong shipping address, the Buyer will be required to pay the postage and a
reshipment fee of $5.00. In addition, no reshipment will be sent until the original shipment has been
returned to the Seller. If the Buyer cancels an order after the Company has received payment or if the
Company is forced to cancel the order because the Buyer lives in a Restricted State or discloses their
intent to geminate the spores, the Buyer must pay a $5 cancellation fee which the Company will deduct
from the received payment. After deducting the cancellation fee, the Company will refund the
remaining payment amount to Buyer. If the Company is forced to cancel an order for the reasons listed
above, the Company may block the Buyer’s account on the Company’s website, if any has been made.
7. Disclaimer- We are not responsible for ensuring timely delivery after the Company has
delivered the product to the courier. The Company will provide Buyer with a tracking number. Seller is
not liable for any delays in shipment arising from the courier’s actions or inaction.
8. Shipping Plan- Credit card authorization and verification must be received prior to
processing any order. The Company will typically ship out products five (5) days a week, Monday-Friday.
