Orders, including expedited, require processing time before shipping and will ship by the next business day (e.g. orders submitted Friday ship by Monday). While not guaranteed, we do our best to accommodate requests for faster or delayed processing.
Exceptions, about which we’ll contact the buyer, may include:
- orders requiring further information, e.g. address correction, or
- heat-sensitive orders to ship after the weekend to avoid delays in warm facilities.
SHIPMENT & DELIVERY
Packages go out Monday thru Friday (except some holidays) to all fifty U.S. states and most of Canada via U.S. Postal Service or FedEx.
Some orders require additional packaging, such as cold packs and insulation for heat-sensitive orders traveling through warm weather. Any applicable fees are added automatically to your cart at checkout.
Delivery times (after processing) are as follows:
- Flat Rate (U.S. only): 2-7 days (free for chocolate, tinned seafood, bitters, and orders over $50)
- FedEx Home Delivery (U.S.): 1-5 business days (see map below)
- FedEx 2-Day: guaranteed 2 business days
- FedEx Overnight: guaranteed next business day
ONCE IT’S ON ITS WAY
Tracking information should be provided automatically by the carrier (unavailable for non-expedited gift cards). If you do not receive courtesy tracking information from USPS or FedEx within 24 hours of shipment, please feel free to contact us.
The carrier assumes liability for the package, contents, and delivery once they pick up the shipment. The buyer should contact the carrier to resolve delivery issues. Caputo’s is not responsible for delays caused by shipping carriers.
The recipient assumes liability once a shipment is delivered. To ensure quality and prevent theft, we recommend:
- delivering at secure/cool delivery locations,
- making sure packages are promptly retrieved and properly stored,
- watching tracking updates (courtesy tracking is available for most packages),
- checking mailbox, mail locker, front desk, porch, neighbors, or other locations, and
- shipping to an alternative address if problems have arisen in the past.
Please feel free to reach out with questions. We’re committed to helping resolve issues however we can.
WARM WEATHER COMMITMENT
We ship heat-sensitive items nationwide year-round. With our warm weather packaging (small fee may apply during hottest months), we commit to keeping your order properly cooled and in great shape on arrival. If your order is best shipped after the weekend to avoid holding delays in warm facilities, we will notify you if this would push fulfillment beyond next-day. If you encounter an exception, please promptly notify us, and we’ll help however we can.
Cancellations are guaranteed until the order is being prepared for shipment. We do our best to track down and cancel unshipped orders upon request.
You may return most new, unopened, non-perishable items within 7 days of delivery for a full refund. We’ll pay return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error.
Please allow up to four weeks (most are faster) for returns to:
- arrive at our warehouse (up to 10 business days) and
- be processed (1-3 business days) and posted to your account (up to 7 business days).
