Orthodox Marketplace Shipping & Returns Policy

Please allow for a 24-48 hour turnaround in order fulfillment. Orders will be processed 24 hours following Federal and Ecclesiastical holidays.

Shipping within the continental United States
For orders placed via www.orthodoxmarketplace.org we are pleased to offer several methods for your shipping convenience. At the point of check-out you will be able to select the method that you would prefer for shipment. Shipping costs are based on the quantity/weight of the shipment, as well as its destination. Once the package has been picked up by the selected shipping carrier we are no longer responsible for the order.

Free Shipping
Free standard shipping is valid for online orders of $150.00 or more in the United States. Handling fees and applicable taxes are additional. Standard shipping offer valid in contiguous US only, excludes AK and HI. Not valid with any other offers or custom orders.

General International Policy
The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient; Orthodox Marketplace has no control over these charges, nor can it predict what they may be.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

Note: Customs offices in some countries require the importer of record to provide a particular form of identification before releasing a shipment. You may be required to provide an identification number such as a Unique Identification Number, CPF, or Tax ID.

Countries that require an identification number include: Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, India, Israel, Peru, Qatar, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey.

Shipping to Canada
Currently, we offer International shipping to our Canadian customers. This method takes from 2 to 7 business days, depending on your location in Canada. We are currently unable to add GST or HST (when applicable) to your order. Please be aware that there may be additional customs charges. Please check Canada’s customs policies.

Please note: Prices quoted are based on US currency.
