If we deposit your payment by our 9 am (PST) cut off time, your order will be shipped the same business day. If we deposit your payment after 9 am (PST), your order will be shipped the next business day. We recommend that you send payment the day before you want us to ship your package (payments are processed in the order that they are received). It is our intention to ship as many packages as we can on any given day, therefore our cut off time may be extended internally past 9 am.

Yes, If you want to edit or add to your order, you’ll need to create a new order with us. We will then go ahead and cancel the old order (if it is has not been paid for already). Email us at [email protected] with your order number that you want cancelled

How can i refer a friend?

You can do this via the Refer a Friend link which is located in your account panel. Just share this link with your friends — they will open our site via your link, and then proceed to register an account. Once your friend registers with us and has their account approved, they earn 500 points ($25). Once they make their first purchase with us, you get a $25 coupon voucher by email. Contact Customer Support if you do not receive a coupon to your email for any referrals (please have your friends order number or email address on hand).

How does your points system work?

For each $1 you spend with us, you get 1 point. For every 20 points that you accumulate you’ll earn a $1 discount which you can apply to any future orders with us. You can redeem your points on the ‘cart’ or the ‘checkout’ page. Please note, points are not earned on shipping costs.
20 points = $1.00
100 points = $5.00
1000 points = $50.00

How do i earn more points?

There are a few ways to collect more points. Firstly, if you do a product review, you’ll earn 10 points for every review made. You can only do a review on items that you have specifically purchased. Secondly, by signing up as a new member you automatically get 500 points. Thirdly, you can earn more points for referring your friends. And last but not least, we will run points promotions periodically so sign up for our email list.

How do I send a Bitcoin payment?

Bitcoin is a virtual currency that helps facilitate e-commerce transactions around the world while helping to keep buyer and seller anonymous and secure. Please refer to this external guide on how to purchase and sell Bitcoins.

What happens once my payment has been sent to you?

Once the payment is sent, it may take a few hours for us to receive and then
deposit the payment (during business hours). If payment is sent during non-business hours, we will accept your payment the following business day. When your payment has been received by us, we will notify you by email. And we will send you a tracking number by email once the order is ready to ship out.
Once payment has been deposited, your order will be processed. Please note any payments deposited after 9:00AM (PST) will be shipped out the next business day  (although we will extend this cut off time internally as far as possible). We recommend that you send payment the day before you want us to ship your package.

What happens to my order if I don’t send you a payment?

Once the order is placed, the next step is to send your payment to us. We keep the order on hold until the payment is received. If there’s no payment after two days, then the order is cancelled.

Shipping, Handling and Canada Post

I haven’t received my package, what do I do?

Insured Shipping

If you select Insured Shipping, and you don’t receive your package after two days past the expected delivery date, contact us. You will be eligible for a full reimbursement of the cost of the items on the order, and you can simply place the order again. Please note that a trace / investigation with Canada Post must be initiated before refunds are processed.

Non-Insured Shipping

If you have NOT selected the “Insured Shipping” option, and you don’t get your package after two days past the expected delivery date, please contact us. We can do a trace with Canada Post. This investigation by Canada Post may take 10 or more business days to finish. If they are able to find the package, Canada Post will re-ship it to you free of cost. If the package is deemed “unrecoverable,” refunds will not be offered.

What is Insured Shipping?

When you select “Insured Shipping” as an option upon checkout, your package is marked as a guaranteed delivery. Insured Shipments will require a signature. If you do not receive your package, a credit will be issued for the full amount of your order (excluding shipping costs).
*Please note Insured Shipping is only offered as a paid add-on to your order
and is not available for customers in Nunavut.

The tracking by Canada Post says “Successfully Delivered,” but I haven’t received my package from you.

Here are two possible scenarios:
  • The postal worker delivered the package to the wrong mailbox
  • The postal worker mistakenly scanned the package as “successfully delivered,” but it will actually be delivered the next business day.
Canada Post says:
“When our Track tool indicates that a letter or parcel was successfully delivered, it means the item arrived as addressed. Some addresses do not have deliveries directly to your door; you may need to check a second location like a mail room, front desk, or safe drop location. Also, check with everyone in the household as another member of the house may have received or retrieved the item. If a signature is shown on Track, see if it matches anyone in the household who may have signed for the item, as we deliver to the address and not to the name on the item.”
Note: In rare cases, a delivery scan is entered into our system before the item is delivered. If you cannot locate the item using the tips above, please allow 24 hours for updates or final delivery.
Canada Post advises:
“If 24 hours have passed since the Track tool indicated the letter or parcel was delivered but the item hasn’t arrived, the sender can report the problem by starting a claim using Online Service Tickets.
Note: Only the sender can file a claim for non-delivery. If you are the recipient please get in touch with the sender or call Canada Post Customer Service.”

My package was sent with a “Signature Required.” Why was this asked of me?

Any order over $300 dollars is sent with a ‘Signature Required.” If you don’t want this option, please leave a note with your order indicating “No Signature required”. Please note that Insured orders have a signature requirement which cannot be waived.

My package is travelling to another city when tracking, why is this happening?

This is likely a minor processing error on Canada Post’s end, and it should correct itself within 1-2 business days. If your package remains in the same location for more than 2 business days, please contact our Customer Support via live chat or email for assistance.

Canada post hasn’t updated my package in several days, what is wrong?

In many cases the tracking isn’t updated due to a missing scan, which is a common occurrence for Canada Post. If your tracker is not updating, and the package is not delivered within 5 business days of shipment, please contact us and we will do a trace with Canada Post.

Why doesn’t the tracking number I receive from you work?

We may email you the tracking number before the package arrives at the Post Office. The tracking number won’t show up as traceable on the Canada Post site until the package is physically scanned in at the first destination. In most cases trackers will be updated by the end of the business day.

Lost Orders

Herb Approach assumes no responsibility for lost orders due to:
  • Wrong address provided by the customer (including typos or auto-correct errors)
  • Customer change of address / residence
  • Theft after delivery
  • Package being rejected upon delivery (by doorman or other)
With that being said, please contact us so we can assist you in trying to
recover your item.
