Will I have to pay customs on an international order?
International orders shipped outside the U.S. may be subject to duties, import taxes, and certain country fees imposed by your country of residence. Root Science has no control over these charges and they are the sole responsibility of the customer.
You are responsible for all taxes and duties (including VAT) imposed by your country of residence and if you neglect to pick up your package and it is returned to us, we will not refund the original shipping charge.
You will generally have to pay taxes and duties in your country of residence directly to your local postal service to release your package. This additional amount is not reflected in our (USD) pricing and we have no control over it.
By placing a Root Science order, you acknowledge that you are aware of the above and accept it as your financial responsibility.
Tracking shows as delivered, but I don’t have my package. What do I do?
Trying to find your package? We’re sorry — this can happen sometimes! Occasionally a carrier will tag a package as delivered before it’s been physically dropped off.
Please check your front porch, side door, back porch, garage area, bushes, mailbox, and mail room to make sure it’s not hiding. Also, please ask any neighbors, housemates, concierges, and coworkers (if delivered to work) if they may have received it for you.
If your package still hasn’t turned up 3 days after the delivery date shown in your tracking information, please contact us for further guidance.
