Returns  by 
Unfortunately, we do not accept returns or exchanges. Sale on all items are final. This is for our customers safety because we do not know if the item has been tampered with. The only time we will accept a return on food items is if they arrived with an expiration date that has passed.

If items arrive damaged, please contact us with pictures (photos) of package and damaged items and we will refund you the cost of the items in full. Please...Please you must send us these pictures in order to get a refund. If we do not receive these pictures, no refund will be issued back to your account.

Fulfillment mistakes that we make resulting in the shipment of incorrect items to you will also be accepted for return 7 days from the date your received the item.

Note: We advise our customers to not buy an item in bulk if it is their first time buying the item from our site. This will prevent you the buyer from ending up with bulk of items that you cannot return. Once you are satisfied with the single item you bought from our site, then you can proceed to order them in bulk if you wish to do so.

Shipping Policy  by 
Shipping Time -- Most orders received before 5:00PM will ship the same day, provided the product ordered is in stock. Most orders received after 5:00 PM will ship the next business day. Orders are not processed or shipped on Saturday or Sunday, except by prior arrangement.

We cannot guarantee when an order will arrive. Consider any shipping or transit time offered to you by Tropical Appétit or other parties only as an estimate. We encourage you to order in a timely fashion to avoid delays caused by shipping or product availability.

We offer flat rate Standard U.S. Shipping for all items. Generally, the most economical choice for our U.S. customers is our Standard Shipping. No coupon code is necessary. If your address qualifies (the country must be selected as United States) the free or Standard Shipping will simply appear as an option. This is based on the subtotal of your order according to the following scale:

Standard U.S. Shipping

Item(s) will arrive in 4-7 business days.

Subtotal: Shipping Cost Without Signature Confirmation Cost. Shipping Cost + Signature Confirmation Cost ($2.55)
Up to $9.99 $8.95 $11.50
$10.00 - $24.99 $11.95 $14.50
$25.00 - $69.99 $15.95 $18.50
$70.00 - Up $19.95 $22.50

Standard Shipping will be sent through USPS First Class Mail, USPS Priority Mail, or UPS Ground. Orders weighing less than 13 ounces total will very likely be shipped via USPS First Class Mail. Very heavy orders will likely be shipped via UPS Ground. We will select the specific shipping method if you use the Standard Shipping option. If you require a specific shipping method you can choose from those options as well while checking out. Those prices will depend where the package is going, and is calculated for each order.

Adding a Signature Confirmation when selecting your shipping cost provides us (shippers) with the name of the recipient as well as the delivery date, time, and location; a copy of the recipient’s signature will also be faxed, mailed, or e-mailed to us upon request. The Signature Confirmation requires the USPS mail carrier to obtain a signature from the person who accepts your package upon delivery. This is for your protection as well as mine.
