Frequently Asked Questions
How much is shipping?
Shipping is Free on fundraising full case orders within the 48 contiguous states.
If you are purchasing a smaller item such as a bucket of Smencils, shipping is based on FedEx’s real time rates. They factor in your destination, shipping method, and weight of your package.
Note: Shipping is charged to Alaska and Hawaii on all orders.
Do you ship outside the 48 contiguous states?
No. We only ship our products to U.S. addresses within the 48 contiguous States, excluding APO/FPO mailing address.
What payment methods do you accept?
Pre-Pay Method: We accept these major credit cards: Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover. You can also pay online using PayPal. You can mail a check with your order form as well.
30 Day Terms: We accept purchase orders for case quantity orders. We do not accept purchase orders for any orders of less than a case; these must be prepaid with a check or credit card.
A credit card can be put on file as security with the agreement a check will be mailed within 30 days of ship date.
I’m placing an order on net 30 day terms, why do I need to fill out the credit authorization form also?
For security purposes we require people ordering on net 30 terms to fill out this additional form. It states that if your invoice is not paid via check or credit card by the due date then we have authorization to charge the credit card placed on file. Furthermore, in the event of non-payment, the form gives us the authority to exercise our legal rights provided by the courts.

Can I ship to multiple addresses on one order?
Not at this time. Please place one order per shipping address.
Can I purchase just one scent or specific scents?
Only Birthday and Smart Smencils come with one scent all of our other products come to us assorted so we are unable to sell specific scents.
I am purchasing through my school; does this mean it will be tax exempt?
We are required to charge sales tax if the order is being shipped to schools within California (the same State that we are in).
If you are ordering through a school outside of California (and having the order shipped outside of CA), then we do not charge sales tax.
How much product should we anticipate selling for our fundraiser?
It depends. As a rule of thumb, we recommend starting off with 1 bucket/carrier of product per person selling. Because our products are non-perishable… and returnable to us, you are free to order as much product as you think your group might sell.
If you over order, we will take back any un-opened product within 60 days of delivery. Seasonal products are not eligible for return. If you under order, just let us know and we will send you more.
