Update as of 12/23/21: FedEx and UPS hubs around the country are experiencing delays due to overall e-commerce volume, inclimate weather and the added safety measures in place due to the current resurgence of COVID-19. They are committed to preparing and delivering your package as quickly as possible.
Goldbelly and our partners take enormous pride in every product we offer and strive to deliver them in the best possible condition on the requested delivery date.
While there are many things we do to mitigate the risk of shipping fresh and frozen food around the country, there are unfortunately some things outside of our control like the weather and transit delays once the package is in the hands of FedEx or UPS. As such, the shipping guidelines published on this website are not guarantees of a shipping or arrival date.
Goldbelly is unable to guarantee time of delivery, as this is all subject to the local carrier. Most carriers will deliver packages anytime between 8am-10pm. If you are placing an order for a time-sensitive event, we recommend placing your order early and scheduling it to arrive 2+ days before your event. A majority of our products can be frozen or refrigerated upon arrival to preserve freshness.
In anticipation of high package volumes (especially during holidays) or other uncontrollable events, we may have your order ship early to ensure that it arrives in good condition. Goldbelly reserves the right schedule the arrival of your order earlier or later than estimated to prevent delays, based on operational conditions.
Goldbelly is not responsible for delays in transit caused by high package volume, weather, mechanical error, strikes, natural disasters, terrorism safety control, local carrier mis-scans or inaccurate/incomplete shipping information, and we do not require a signature for the release of any shipment. Leaving a package at an address is ultimately up to the complete discretion of the individual delivery person and is therefore entirely outside our control.
Goldbelly does not require a signature for the delivery of most of its packages. However, products from Tipsy Scoop require an adult signature (21+) upon delivery. Goldbelly is not responsible for packages that require a signature but are not delivered because no one is home to sign.
Customers are responsible for checking that all shipping information is correct before submitting an order as well as in their order confirmation email. If you need to modify the delivery address once your order has shipped, a $19 address change processing fee will apply to your order. Once an address modification is requested, carriers require one business day to process the change, which may delay the package. Goldbelly is not responsible for delays in transit caused by address modification.
There are no returns, refunds or cancellations allowed on any orders that have shipped.
All packages are shipped via UPS or FedEx and therefore we cannot ship to P.O. Box addresses.
