How much does shipping cost?
Shipping rates are set up individually by each business owner. Rates are typically determined by the destination address and the size and weight of the item purchased. Business owners decide whether or not they want to ship internationally. Check a shop's Shipping Instructions tab for more information.
What countries does Mindful Market ship to?
This is up to the registered business. Currently, Mindful Market serves the United States & Canada. However, international customers can contact the shop owner and ask them to quote international shipping rates based on the final destination.
What is your return policy?
In general, each business owner on Mindful Market sets their own policies regarding returns and refunds. These policies should be displayed in each seller's Store Policies tab in their business page. However, in the event that there is a problem with an order, the first step is to always contact the seller directly. If a business fails to send an item, or you feel the item is counterfeit and want a return, be sure to visit Stripe within 7-21 days and file a dispute.
