The PerfectBee Philosophy

At PerfectBee, your satisfaction is a very high priority to us! We take great pride in our service, the products we offer, our fairness and our transparency. We want you to be completely satisfied with your order.

LOW-COST, HONEST SHIPPING!

Fed up with surprises when you reach checkout? We have worked very hard to create a shipping cost policy that is clear, simple and the most competitive available to the hobbyist beekeeper. Here’s how it works…

FOR PACKAGES OF 25 lbs OR LESS

  • For orders under $75, shipping is a simple, flat $10. We believe this free shipping level is the lowest available to the hobbyist beekeeper.
  • For orders of $75+, shipping is free. Check around! Most stores require orders of at least $100 (and some as much as $150!) to qualify for free shipping. Not PerfectBee….

FOR PACKAGES OF 25 lbs OR MORE

We calculate shipping charges based on weight and shipping address. Of course, we’ll tell you exactly what you will pay before you check out.

We believe our shipping charges are very competitive and invite you to check our “to-the-door” (product costs + shipping) price.

Our highly competitive shipping costs are the reason so many choose PerfectBee.

Outside of the contiguous US

We don’t like it either, but shipping costs outside of the contiguous US states suck (including Alaska, Hawaii and Canada)!

But rather than simply not offer service to our friends in these locations, we ask that you please contact us through Customer Service for a shipping estimate.

SHIPPING METHODS AND SCHEDULE

Orders are shipped via Fedex, UPS or USPS on business days, Monday through Friday. After receiving your order, we do our best to move things along quickly and efficiently. In the majority of cases orders are shipped within 1-3 days.

If it appears your order will take longer than a week* to leave the warehouse – which is unusual – we will try to contact you and ask how you would like to proceed. At any stage, before an an order ships, we are happy to cancel the order if this is your wish. For our policy after your order leaves the warehouse, please see our Return Policy below.

* In some cases we may be aware of a delay in shipping due to heavy demand, in which case we will note this on the relevant product page.

For any shipping questions, please contact Customer Service.

RETURN POLICY

Our return policy is generous and focused on you, our esteemed customer. Where necessary, some factors are dependent on the type of product and our suppliers, as follows.

General Return Policy

Within 30 days of receiving your order, if, for any reason, our product does not meet your expectations, we will be happy to exchange or fully refund your order, minus return shipping costs. Returned items must be unused, unaltered and unabused.

For products made primarily with honey, beeswax, propolis or other products of the beehive, we can only accept returns if the product is returned unopened and unused. 

PerfectBee is not responsible for damage that occurs during return shipping. Take precautions to avoid damage during shipping by packing your return item with the same packaging in which it arrived.

Requesting a Return

To initiate a return, please get in touch with Customer Service and we will respond with the appropriate instructions for returning your item(s).

Issue of Refund

Refunds on return orders, minus return shipping costs, will be processed upon receipt and verification of the item(s) at our suppliers location, in the condition described by the policy above.

DAMAGED & MISSING ITEMS

We encourage you to open and inspect your order as soon as it arrives. If you receive a damaged or broken item, please contact us within 7 days of receiving your order. We will request photos of both packaging (including the shipping label) and product damage to accurately submit your claim to our shipper.

After you provide the images and we have verified with our shipper, we can process the exchange and a new product will be sent to you at no cost.

After 7 days, we can still exchange a damaged item, however, the cost of initial shipping and product replacement shipping will be the customer’s responsibility.

If an item is missing from your order, please contact Customer Service and let us know which item did not arrive. We will request your order number and promptly send your item at no extra charge.
