When You Order from™

Our policy on pricing, shipping, returns and security

Despite our best efforts, some misunderstandings about expectations are bound to occur from time to time.  The information presented here is offered in an attempt to clarify our policies and practices, to avoid these problems, as much as possible.  It's a dual safeguard:

A note about our Better Business Bureau Online status

We accept all major credit cards and PayPal™ was a member of the Better Business Bureau Online from February 2002 through August 2007.  It served as your guarantee that this business is run according to the highest standards of ethics and business practices.

As a member of the BBB Online, I agreed to participate in an arbitration process for any complaints that couldn't be resolved between me and a customer.  While this situation never arose, I was glad to offer you another safeguard.

But, for the year 2007, the BBB Online significantly raised its membership fees, and I could no longer justify the expense.  However, you can be assured that I will continue to conduct business with the same regard to ethics and high business standards that I always have.

Product Pricing

All of the prices listed on this website are retail.  As with any business, I order the products at wholesale, give them a mark-up and sell them to you.  Several of the companies I work with have strict policies on minimum pricing.  To offer them to you at all, I have to abide by these policies.  But, in every way, I strive to make the best products available to you at the best prices possible.

Sales Tax

Many people feel that, since they are ordering product over the internet, there should be no sales tax on their purchases.  Personally, that is how I feel.  Unfortunately, it doesn't always work that way.  When I'm charged taxes on the inventory I purchase, I have no choice but to pass that expense along to you.  I hope that you will be understanding about this.

That said, at this point, I only charge sales tax on purchases made within the states of Nebraska and California, as well as the Virgin Islands.

Shipping Policy

When you place an order with™, I'll do everything I can to get that order processed and on its way to you that day.  However, since this is a home-based business,

  1. I keep only a limited amount of stock on hand.  I try to keep the most-ordered products in stock, but for several items, I rely on drop-shipping from the manufacturer.  Generally, the service I receive from these companies is very good.  Energique normally ships the same day.  Bio-Design has generally been very good, as well.  However, from time-to-time, products that cannot be drop-shipped might not be in stock when your order is placed.  Should that occur, I'll do everything I can to get the product in and on its way to you as quickly as possible.
  2. It should be noted, as well, that stricter regulation by the FDA has made the sourcing of ingredients for many products, from several companies, at reasonable prices difficult.  As a consequence, there has been a dramatic increase in the backorders from my suppliers — sometimes very lengthy backorders.  I do my best to keep this problem to a minimum; but at some point, there just isn't anything more I can do.
  3. Processing orders is done entirely by me.  How quickly I can get the order out the door depends on the time of day the order is received and my physical capacity for the day. 

However, it is my policy to have all orders processed and on their way to you within 72 hours (although, in the 17 years I've been in business, I don't recall any time it has taken that long, except when I've been having computer problems).  It's also my policy to send an e-mail when your order is processed, giving you some idea when to expect it at your door.


For orders shipped from here, I use the United States Postal Service (USPS).  I've tried other methods, but they are generally too expensive and too complicated to make work.

For drop-shipped orders, the shipper is determined by the company.  From Energique and Bio-Design, shipping is done via Priority Mail™

Shipping Rates

Since a significant percentage of the orders placed on this website are drop-shipped from the manufacturers, all shipping charges are determined, to some extent, by them.  I am appauled at the cost of shipping, but it is an expense over which I have no control.  I have done my best to keep the shipping charges as low as possible, without losing money.  I should also note that, when drop-shipping from Energique, I actually pay more for shipping than I charge you.

It should also be noted that shipping charges cover more than just the cost of postage.  Since I have done my best to keep the price of the products offered here as low as possible, I have no real wiggle room when it comes to shipping.  However, I do offer free shipping for any order of $325.00 or more.  That is a high threshold, but it also reflects my concern to keep my prices down, as much as possible.

Note, as well, that when there is a significant difference between what you pay for shipping and what I have to pay to get your order on its way, it is my policy to refund the difference.  This generally only occurs with Next Day shipping.

International Shipping (Ordering from outside the United States):

Shipping orders outside the United States often involves higher shipping rates.  While I used to offer international shipping, over the years, I found that almost no one chose the International Shipping option during checkout.  This meant that I either had to find some creative way to collect the added funds required to pay for shipping or canceling the order.  This was starting to take up a lot of my time and, when I had to cancel the order, it was costing me substantial money, since I have to pay credit card processing when an order is placed and when an order is refunded.  It got to where it wasn't worth my efforts.

That said, if you live outside the United States and would like to order products from my website, I would be happy to consider this, on a case-by-case basis.  However, for me to be able to manage this requires that you have a PayPal account, so I can invoice you.  You can contact me, to see how we can arrange for your order.

Return/Canceled Order Policy

If you are dissatisfied with any product ordered at™, you may return it within 30 days for a full refund (minus shipping charges).  I may, at my discretion, charge a small re-stocking fee for any product that is opened (and I can't re-sell).  Simply contact me and we will work out the details.

If, after ordering, but before product is shipped, you decide to cancel your order, I reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee to cover my credit card processing expenses.  Ordering is free, to you the customer; however, I am charged a fee by my credit card processor, both when you order and when I refund your order.

Ordering Security

Credit Card Processing

When transacting business online, security is always an issue.  Every precaution has been taken by™ to safeguard your personal information.
