Shipping Policy

Call Before Delivery

By requesting a FREE “Call Before Delivery,” the carrier will contact you approximately 24 hours before the estimated arrival of your order to schedule a delivery appointment using the phone number provided at checkout. Selecting this option may add an additional day to your order’s transit time. A 4-hour delivery window is typical; this may vary by carrier and shipping destination.

A “Call Before Delivery” is required for residential deliveries and recommended for businesses with irregular hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. “Call Before Delivery” only applies to the item(s) in your order shipping via common carrier.

If the carrier misses the delivery appointment, they will reschedule it. If you are unavailable to accept your delivery during the scheduled appointment, you will be responsible for any redelivery fees owed to the carrier. Additional fees will apply if you require a time-specific delivery in which the typical 4-hour window needs to be shortened.

If a delivery is unable to be completed because a “Call Before Delivery” was not selected during checkout, the carrier may charge a re-delivery fee in order to reattempt delivery. In these situations, we will contact you via email regarding the fee and charge the card on file if necessary in order to avoid additional fees with the carrier.

Commercial and Residential Shipping Addresses

Commercial carriers will deliver the vast majority of our products to a residential shipping address. If you operate a business out of your home, you must still select “residential” in your shopping cart because the carriers still consider your address residential.

Damaged/Missing/Lost Items – Common Carrier

If any item or packaging is damaged or missing, or if you have any doubt about possible damage, you MUST do the following:

  • Note it clearly on the delivery receipt before signing
  • Keep your copy of the delivery receipt
  • Contact us within 1 business day
  • Keep the damaged packing materials for inspection
  • Take pictures of the damaged items and packaging

Though our warehouses give great attention to packaging every order for shipment, damage can occur in transit. In the case of damage we must go to the carrier company to receive reimbursement for these damages. By signing the delivery receipt you are taking responsibility and ownership for the shipment in the condition noted. If part or all of your shipment is damaged and you did not note this in any way on the delivery receipt, we CANNOT guarantee any compensation for damages. Signing the delivery receipt without noting any damage means that you have received your shipment in acceptable condition.

There are rare occasions where our freight carriers may lose a shipment. In these situations, it’s our highest priority to find your items and we will work with the carrier to do so. Warehouse checks with the carrier take approximately 3-5 business days to complete. If your shipment is found, we will continue the delivery to your location. If it is deemed lost, we will work with you to provide a satisfactory resolution.

Damaged/Missing/Lost items – Ground

Upon receiving your order, please inspect it for any damaged, lost, or missing items.

Traces with ground carriers take approximately 1-5 business days to complete. If your shipment is found, we will continue the delivery to your location.

Delivery Time

Our warehouses strive to have orders processed and ready to ship within 10-15 business days. Most products ship from one of our warehouses within the INDIA. However, since some items will be shipped directly from the manufacturer, delivery times may vary. Common carrier deliveries typically range from 1 to 10 business days for delivery, depending on your proximity to the shipping location. Ground shipping can typically take anywhere from 1 to 15 business days. If your delivery time is over a holiday, please add an additional day for delivery. Our warehouses observe the following holidays: Independence Day, Republic Day, Diwali, Holi, Eid Christmas, New Years, and Chatt-Pooja. Shipping companies may observe additional holidays. All standard ground delivery times and common carrier shipments are estimates and are not guaranteed.

If you need your order more quickly, you may select Second Day or Next Day in your shopping cart (availability dependent on your location). These options guarantee that, as long as the items you’re ordering are in stock, the order will be prioritized in our system and arrive by the end of the following business day (Next Day), or the end of the second business day (Second Day). These options are not available for common carrier orders. Inclement weather may cause shipping delays that are not covered by this guarantee.

These orders must be placed before 2:00 p.m. IST to ship same day and are only available for delivery on business days (Monday through Friday). For orders shipping directly from the manufacturer, shipping cutoff times may vary. Next & Second Day orders received after 2:00 p.m. IST will be processed on the following business day.

Destinations

We primarily ship throughout the India. We also fulfill small parcel shipments to select countries internationally. We are unable to ship to PO boxes, APO/FPO boxes or Viabox at this time. If you plan to ship to a carrier store location such as a FedEx or UPS Store, please be aware that these locations will not accept deliveries from one another. If a shipping carrier deems your address inaccessible for delivery, they will make final delivery at the closest shipping terminal or return the shipment to our warehouse. Contact Customer Solutions if you have any questions.

We also ship to U.S. based freight forwarders; however, you are responsible for contacting them to set up an account before placing an order. Freight forwarders will charge additional fees for their services, which are separate from our shipping and handling charges. We are unable to accept and load customer containers directly from our warehouse locations.

Duties and Taxes

The EcoPackagings.com is a INDIA-based company, therefore duties and taxes will be assessed on any items shipping outside of the INDIA. Duties and taxes depend on the type of items being shipped, harmonized codes, and the discretion the customs agents have in evaluating these costs. The charge shown on our website’s shipping calculator will not show these fees.

Freight Forwarders

If your order is being shipped to a INDIA based freight forwarder, all of our Shipping Policies apply when it is received into their warehouse. EcoPackagings.com will not be held responsible for any damaged and/or missing items or material differences should the freight forwarder not follow all applicable Shipping and Returns policies, or should such issues occur in shipment from the freight forwarder’s location to the final destination.

Notice to Residential Customers

While EcoPackagings.com is designed specifically for those in the commercial packaging service industry, we will ship most items to residential customers.

Packaging

Packaging that is used during shipment is designed to keep the contents of your order safe from damage or mishandling of products. On occasion a shipment will be received with damage to the packaging. Because the packaging is designed to protect the products that we ship, compensation will not be offered for packaging damage. If the actual items in your shipment are damaged, please contact us right away so we can arrange for compensation or replacement. Occasionally we will ship items in recycled boxes which may contain descriptions unrelated to the products inside in an effort to be more eco-friendly. This practice also allows us to cut costs on packaging which then is reflected into lower prices on our items. Be sure to inspect the actual items inside of the packaging before refusing a shipment due to incorrect information on the boxes.

Accepted Credit Cards/Debit Cards (Preferred Method)

All orders must be placed online through our checkout process. We accept all major credit cards including Master Card, Visa, American Express, and Discover. We are able to accept most prepaid credit cards as long as the card has been registered with a billing address. Only a single credit card may be used to process the order.

Alternative Payments (Check, Money Order, Net Banking, UPI, NEFT)

We accept check, money order, UPI, and NEFT for orders with an order total of ₹ 500.00 or greater. The order will be placed on hold until payment has been received.

Once payment is cleared, the order will be released to process for shipment. Personal checks are held for 5 business days while they clear. A holding period is not required if a certified check is provided. All other alternative payment orders will be processed as soon as the payment is received, with a minimum of 1 business day delay to receive payment.

Charges and Authorizations

Your card will be charged in full once the first item(s) on your order ship. When you place an order on our website, an authorization is placed on your bank account for the amount of your order. An authorization is a communication from your bank to our payment system letting us know your card is valid and the required funds are available. These authorizations may show as “pending” on your bank statement until the funds are captured. Once the card is charged for the order, the authorization will drop off from your bank statement, typically within 1-2 business days.

Credit and debit card providers differ in how long they will hold an authorization for a pending transaction. If your order has an extended lead time, a member of our Payments team may reach out requesting to charge the card in advance to avoid losing the authorization. Authorizations and/or pending transactions will hold these funds on your bank account, which can result in overdraft fees. EcoPackagings.com assumes no liability for fees in the event of such an overdraft.

Currency

All pricing is listed in Indian National Rupee (₹) on the website. When ordering outside of the India, the funds captured for an order will be converted to the local currency of the ordering country on your credit card statement. The rate of exchange is locked in when your order ships, not when the order is placed. Credit card companies may also charge a currency conversion fee. Please contact your card issuer for further details.

Purchase Orders

We are unable to accept Purchase Orders as a form of payment since we update our pricing in real time and do not rely on quoted prices. All orders must be placed online and paid for in full at the time of purchase.

Goods and Services Tax

Goods and Services tax will be charged on all orders. If you are tax-exempt and shipping, visit email us your Tax Exempt Form for review.

How do i Cancel/Modify an Order?

The product is sourced from a variety of vendors according to price and availability so we may both quickly and fairly accommodate your needs.

Our Images Department makes every effort to portray the color of an item as accurately as possible on our site. However, depending on your monitor settings, the color of an item may appear different than in person. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the color displayed on your monitor.

Sales and Coupon Code Policy

Because we are a bulk distributor for food service supplies, we make sure to advertise our lowest prices on our website, including discounts we receive from our vendors that are passed onto our customers. On occasion we will provide sales and coupon codes to receive further discounts off the original price of the item. To ensure the discount is received for sales, items should be purchased as soon as possible. Coupon codes for items on our site will have an expiration date associated with them. Coupons and discounts will only be honored on orders that are placed while the coupon/discount is valid. Discounts do not apply to already discounted products and cannot be used in conjunction with other offers.

Pricing that is advertised on sources outside of our website may reflect incorrect prices compared to what we currently offer. The prices on our website are regularly updated to ensure accurate, real-time pricing; however, search engines and coupon code websites may not always provide the most up-to-date prices. Please visit our website to view the current pricing of our items. Prices and coupon codes that are not valid will not be honored at checkout.
