Item Availability: We aim to have items in-stock and ready to ship. However, being that our products are hand-crafted by an international network of gifted artisans and designers, quantities may be limited. If an item is out of stock, you will either be informed at the time you add it to your shopping bag or you will be notified via email prior to our processing your transaction. If you would like assistance in finding an alternate product, please contact us at service [at] shopequita [dot] com
Gift Certificates: Equita Gift Certificates allow you to share your ethics while giving to those hard-to-shop-for loved ones. As a convenience, we will package your Gift Card, include your personal message and send it to your recipient free of charge via first-class mail (delivery within 5-7 business days). If you would like to expedite the shipping, you may choose to send it by email or upgrade via post for a fee. Gift certificates act as valid payment for all items available in the shop, but are not redeemable for cash or future gift certificates. When paying with a Gift Certificate, any unused balance will be applied to future purchases. If your order amount exceeds the amount of your Gift Card, the balance can be paid with a credit card. NOTE: Gift certificates cannot be combined with promotional offers or discount codes.
Gift Wrap: Equita offers gift wrap services for most items for an additional fee of $7. We use handcrafted fair trade gift bags or recycled kraft paper with raffia ribbon. A gift card with personalized message is enclosed with all gift orders. NOTE: Items that are not eligible for gift wrap will either be identified in the product description or we will notify you by email before your order is processed.
Discounts and Sale Merchandise: Promotional offers and discounts are accepted on most in-stock, full-priced merchandise and must be applied at the time of purchase. Unless specifically noted, promotions and coupon codes are not available on sale/discounted merchandise or items noted to be excluded from promotional offers. If a discount is applied to an item or purchase in error at time of checkout, we will adjust the price before processing the transaction. Coupon codes and discounts are limited to one use per customer/transaction and cannot be combined with other offers. NOTE: Discounts cannot be applied retroactively to previous purchases. We do not offer price adjustments on merchandise purchased at full price that is later reduced in price.Packaging & Recycling Efforts: We are dedicated to conservation and environmental stewardship. We use materials that are enviro-friendly, re-used and recycled - from the fair trade, reusable gift bags and recycled Kraft paper wrapping to the re-used shipping boxes, Cradle to Cradle Certified USPS packaging, and other shipping materials.
