General Shipping Information
We typically ship orders within two businesses days of their receipt. All shipping is handled by the Red Lotus Team personally, so orders are not processed outside of our normal business hours, which are Monday through Thursday, 9 AM – 4 PM.
All domestic orders over $50 ship free, always (price subject to change without notice).
When cost efficient, we mail most domestic packages using USPS’s Priority Mail service. This gets our products to you within a week in many cases; however, occasionally shipments will take up to 10 business days to reach you. If you haven’t received your package within this time frame, please email our office at katie at redlotusletter.com.
International orders are also sent via USPS. Please expect a wait of up to three weeks for your package. Remember, once the package is outside the U.S., we can no longer track it. If the package has left the international dispatch stage, that means it’s with your country now. Please contact your local postal service to inquire about your package’s status.
We charge a flat fee of $50 to ship on all international orders. Once the exact shipping cost is calculated, we will refund the difference. So if it’s $15 to ship to you, we will refund $35 of your shipping fees.
You should always get an email with your tracking information
Newsletter Free Gifts
A few words on our free gift promotions: Bonus items advertised in the newsletter are not included in orders that do not meet the stated order amount. For example, if Red Lotus Letter offers a free arowana fish statue for orders over $40.00, an order of $34.99 will not receive the bonus gift. Bonus gifts are also not available for digital product purchases. Finally, as stated in the newsletter, there are limited quantities of the bonus gifts. Once we’ve run out, the promotion ends. Buy early on newsletter days to ensure you receive the gift.
Damaged or Broken Items: Notify upon receipt via email that item has come in damaged and return within 5 days of notification. If an item breaks within 15 days of purchase, please notify via email that the item has broken and return within 5 days of notification. Once damaged items have been received, you may have a choice of a new item to be shipped, repaired or a full refund. Since we pay for the majority (often all) of the initial shipping costs, we do not pay for item return shipping charges. We will absorb the cost of shipping your replacement item to you.
Returns: Items may be returned within 10 days for a refund less a 25% restocking fee. All items must be in usable resalable condition. If you have concerns about shipping, please insure your shipment. Upon receipt of items, the refund will be processed. Since we pay for most of your shipping costs, we do not pay for item return shipping charges.
**Very small and minor imperfections should not be considered as flawed or damaged. Most Red Lotus Boutique items are hand produced and these defects are a normal by- product in the manufacturing process. These small imperfections will not alter the effectiveness of the product.
