Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept orders via phone, email, fax, or postal mail?
At this time we are unable to accept any orders that
are not placed through our web site. Pricing quotes on products and shipping are only available through the web
Do you accept walk-in customers?
Sorry, due to the amount of time that it takes
to determine what a walk-in customer needs, pull an order on-demand, ring up a sale, and assist a customer in
getting their products out the door, we cannot accept any walk-in customers at this time.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Sassafrasdesign.com accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover,
American Express, and PayPal as payment for orders through our web site. If you use PayPal
you will need to manually send your payment after the
order is placed (although we provide a button to click
that will automatically fill in the appropriate values
in the "Send Payment" screen).
Why can I only add one item to my shopping cart at a time?
All transactions are handled in US Dollars. We do not
ship or sell outside of the United States of America.
If you are only able to add one item at a time
to your shopping cart then this is a problem with the security settings on your computer. Users who have disabled
cookies, changed the default security levels, or installed software firewalls (such as ZoneAlarm) may have to
revert those settings to the defaults in order to place an order on our online store. if you are unable to
change those settings because you are using a public terminal (for example, a computer at a public library) then
you may need to find a different computer to use.
I have been told that my order is "On hold for security reasons". What does that mean?
All credit card orders where the AVS and CVV
checks on the provided data are not perfect matches, or where there are separate billing and shipping addresses,
will be held until the information can be verified (AVS verifies the billing address and the CVV code is the
last 3 digits on the signature panel of Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards). This will void the
guarantee on same-day shipping if an expedited shipping method is selected. If your order is held we will
email you requesting verification. If we do not receive a response within 1 week, or if the information
cannot be verified (for example, 'Bank of America' will NOT validate addresses over the phone), then the order
will be cancelled and a refund will be issued.
Do you accept purchase orders?
I have questions about an item. Can your customer service agents physically obtain a product and give me more information about it?
Because our product is
either in our showroom(s) or warehouse we may not be
able to provide you an answer over the phone. If
not, your name and number will be taken and we will get
an answer back to you within 24 hours.
How do I know if you have a product in stock?
Our entire catalog is available on our web site and
we use a real-time inventory system. If you are able to add the item to your shopping cart then it
should be available to
You just said that if I can order it, you have it. Why did you email me saying an item is out of stock?
While we do use a real-time inventory system, our
inventory is occasionally off by one or two due to order cancellations, returns, damaged items accidentally not removed
from inventory, etc. If it turns out that an item you ordered is unavailable then we will hold your order and contact
you via email with a list of options.
How can I check my order status?
sends all status notifications via email,
there is no way to check your order status on this web site. You will receive an order confirmation email immediately
following the submission of the order (provided that you entered a valid email address and did NOT uncheck the box
stating that you would like a copy of your order emailed to you) and then a second email with the tracking number
once the package is shipped. Additional emails may be sent if your order is being held due to a billing issue or
if an item is out of stock.
I live in in a foreign country and your web site won't take my order. Will you ship to me?
but we do not currently ship outside of the Continental
United States at this time.
I received a box from you but not all of the items I ordered were included. What should I do?
contact us immediately. Here is our current
contact information: Click Here.
How long do you accept returns?
Our return period is 15 days from delivery. During
that time, items may be returned for a refund or for replacement if they are defective. Please note that some items are not able
to be returned once ordered (such as any custom product). You can get more information
on these non-returnable products by reading our complete return policy here.
How do I return an item to
sassafrasdesign.com for replacement/refund?
If you received the product within the last 15 days
then you can contact us at RMA@sassafrasdesign.com
A product I purchased from you a while back has stopped working, who do I contact?
or at 214.478.2266 to receive an RMA (Return Authorization Number). Once you receive
an RMA number you will need to return the product to us within 15 days. Items should be returned to their retail
packaging and then packed inside of a brown or white shipping carton. The RMA number you were issued should be displayed

days of being delivered at our warehouse.
If you received the product within the last 15 days then
you can contact us at
I received a defective product, who pays for the return shipping cost?
or at 214.478.2266 to receive an RMA number. If it has been more than
15 days then you will need to contact the product manufacturer for a warranty replacement. If you have questions as to
who the manufacturer is, or how to get in touch with them, then contact us at
email@example.com or 214.478.2266. Please note that not all of the products that we sell come with a manufacturer's warranty
(such as chandeliers, custom baby crib, etc.). These products cannot be replaced after the sassafrasdesign.com 15-day return period ends.
SassafrasDesign.com does not cover the cost of return shipping
when a customer receives a defective product. We are not responsible for product defects as we do not manufacture any
of the items sold on our web site. We will, however, split the shipping costs involved in getting you an exact replacement.
If the customer pays for the return shipping on the defective product then we will cover the replacement.
Please note that we will only split the shipping fees on one exchange per order. Please check ALL of your items before
contacting us regarding an incorrect/defective/damaged item as exchanges beyond the first will be done completely at
Order Changes and Cancellations
All requests to change or cancel an order should be carried out on the phone
with one of our representatives. Requests that are sent via email or requests
left as phone messages may not be received in time and your order may ship. Once
an order has been packed and tagged for pickup, changes cannot be made and the
order cannot be cancelled. Please note that at certain times it may take less than 30 minutes to ship your order
from the time that is is placed. Please also be aware that our
warehouse staff works evenings and weekends, so it may not be possible to change
or cancel it once placed. Please make sure that your order is correct and
that you really want everything in your shopping cart
before clicking "Submit Order".
We ship only to locations within the United States. We use
UPS as our preferred carrier.
Our shipping costs are based on the weight of the products, the number of boxes
they must be packed in, the distance they must
travel, and the shipping method chosen.
If you need to find out how much shipping will cost on your order, please
put all of the items that you plan on ordering into your shopping cart. Once you
click on the checkout button, you will be prompted to enter your shipping
address. You will receive a shipping quote on the next page based on what
shipping option you chose. Please keep in mind that you will not be asked to
enter any of your billing information until we give you a shipping quote.
UPS is our primary shipping carrier. Since UPS does not deliver to P.O. boxes,
we strongly recommend you indicate either a residential or business shipping
address to avoid delays.

Abnormal Shipping Charges
Due to shopping cart malfunctions SassafrasDesign.com reserves the right to make
corrections to customer orders after they are placed. With customer permission SassafrasDesign.com may also make additional charges to a customer’s credit card
after an order is placed.
We try our best to prevent damage to all packages during transit by packing each
order carefully. Unfortunately, there will be the occasional damaged item.
When shipping damage occurs please make sure that you do not dispose of the
original shipping container or any of the packing material (if the original box
and packing material are not available then we will not be able to file a claim
and we will be unable to replace your damaged item). Please pack the damaged
item back up as you received it and contact us immediately via email firstname.lastname@example.org
or phone. Make sure that you include a detailed description of the damage to
the item, as well as a description of the package if there is any damage to the
Once you have notified us of the damage we will start a claim with the shipping
carrier. A representative of that carrier may contact you regarding a
pickup or an on-site inspection. Once the package has been inspected by
the carrier we will ship out a replacement for the damaged item.
Undeliverable or Refused Shipments:
Packages will be shipped back to us if the customer refuses the package,
is not available for several days for delivery, or if the address entered is
incorrect or incomplete. US-destined packages that come back marked
"Undeliverable as Addressed", "No Such Address/Street/Number", etc. will have a
full refund issued for the products (including TX Sales Tax if applicable) but
not the freight. US-destined packages that come back marked "Refused",
"Will Call, Did not Show", etc. will have a 20% restocking fee deducted from the
value of the products before a refund is issued. Any postage due
associated with a recovering a refused or undeliverable package will be deducted
from the refund.
NOTE: We will not pay recovery fees for ANY Canadian shipments.
Canadian customers who have undeliverable packages or who refuse their packages will not receive refunds for the items
that were shipped, the freight, taxes, or brokerage, and the products will become the property of UPS.
If the tracking states that you gave an incomplete address then you will need to
contact UPS to provide the correct information. If you decide that you do not want the items then you will
need to accept the shipment and then contact us at
email@example.com to receive return

Return Shipping instructions:
All returned items should be packed in the same manner as they were originally
shipped to you. Products returned without a separate shipping box or without the
original product box will be refused. You will need to write the RMA number that
was issued on the outside of the shipping container (do not mark the product box)
or on the shipping label. You are free to use any carrier that you choose (we
recommend UPS because $100 of insurance is included free and all packages
delivered here are signed for) but we strongly suggest that you purchase Insurance and Signature
Confirmation if you are using USPS (or any other carrier where they are not
included for free) as we are not responsible for any packages lost or damaged during
the return trip. In the event that a package is listed as "Delivered"
but cannot be found, only the signature of an sassafrasdesign.com
employee will suffice
as proof of delivery to our warehouse.
