Terms and Conditions – Checkout

Please read before placing an order

Order Collection and Communication Policy

  • Email Notifications: Upon placing an order, you will receive an email confirmation from us. If you do not receive this email, it’s your responsibility to contact us to confirm your order details. We cannot be held responsible for missed communications due to incorrect email addresses provided at checkout. If no contact is made within 15 days from the order date, we will issue a store credit as per our policy.

  • Unclaimed Orders: If you’ve chosen to pick up your order but haven’t collected it within 15 days of purchase, we will return the item to our stock. In such cases, we’ll issue you a store credit for the full amount of your purchase. Please note, refunds will not be provided for unclaimed orders.

  • Order Details and Communication: Accuracy in order details is crucial for a smooth transaction. If there’s an issue with your order (e.g., incorrect address or missing information), we’ll reach out via email to resolve it. If we don’t receive a response within 15 days, the same policy of issuing a store credit will apply. It’s important to ensure that your contact information is correct and to check your email (including spam/junk folders) for our communications

Change of Mind or Ordering Mistake Policy

Handling Order Mistakes and Change of Mind:

    • Refund with Processing Fee: If a customer has a change of mind or makes an ordering mistake and prefers a refund, a $20 processing fee will be deducted from the refund amount. This fee covers the administrative costs associated with processing the refund.
    • Store Credit Option: Alternatively, if the customer opts not to proceed with a refund, we offer store credit for the full value of the original order. This credit can be used for any future purchases on our website, offering flexibility and a range of options to our customers.
  • Shipping Limitation for Heavy Orders: To avoid unexpectedly high shipping costs for our customers, we typically do not ship items weighing over 5kg. We encourage our customers to review shipping options and limitations before finalizing their checkout to ensure clarity and satisfaction with their order

We’re here to assist you every step of the way. If you have any questions or need to update your order details, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our customer service team.

Our website and the materials on our website are provided on an ‘as is’ basis. To the extent permitted by law, The Sourdough Science makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties including, without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property, or other violation of rights.
