GLOBAL COVID-19 PANDEMIC - IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION
UPDATE FOR 2021 HOLIDAY SHIPPING: All major carriers (USPS, UPS, FedEx) with whom we work have stopped offering guaranteed delivery times, even with expedited services. The ongoing pandemic has increased volume of packages sent while more consumers shop from home this holiday, while labor shortages continue to impact the shipping industry.
A friendly reminder that BeeMission.com has no control over what happens with packages once they leave the warehouse, and as such BeeMission.com is not able to guarantee delivery of packages within any specific timeframe.
For these reasons all orders placed on BeeMission.com may potentially arrive after the holidays.
We genuinely appreciate your support and patronage, and apologize if your order becomes impacted by these delays.
COVID-19 is having a tremendous impact on our daily lives. One of the issues impacted heavily is air travel. This impact global shipping as commercial aviation is one of the largest fulfillment methods for packages.
All online merchants (including Bee Mission) are currently affected by this pandemic, and experiencing shipping times extend beyond our control.
Some orders are still being delivered within a few business days, while other orders are experiencing delays of 30 days or more.
Further impacting Bee Mission are stay at home orders in 2 of the 3 jurisdictions from which we fulfill product. This means 2 of our warehouses are in cities where local officials have required the closure of warehousing as non-essential businesses.
We are working hard to move inventory to our primary warehouse which is not affected by any restrictions, but delivery times are still affected,
We are all being impacted by COVID-19 in our daily lives, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we work hard to deliver your orders.
As always, any orders that may get lost during shipping will replaced for you at our cost.

FREE SHIPPING PROMOTION/OFFER
Free Shipping Over $50 applies exclusively to jewelry items. When your shopping cart contains a jewelry merchandise subtotal of $50 (the jewelry merchandise subtotal must be $50 or more after all applicable discounts have been applied), your order will qualify for free shipping. Non-jewelry items in your cart will not qualify towards the $50 threshold.
Free Shipping Offers - including the offer for orders over $50 - apply to your merchandise total at the time of first checkout. Any non-merchandise line items included in your order, including shipping costs, taxes, or exclusive post purchase offers you may presented and subsequently accept after the initial checkout, are not eligible to qualify toward the $50 purchase requirement.
Free Shipping Offers - including the offer for orders over $50 - apply to most regular-priced and most sale-priced items, but excludes items where the price is discounted 75% or more from the original "Strike Through Price", and items priced at $0.00 (even when included in orders with regularly priced items).
Upon completed checkout, orders are automatically submitted for Fulfillment in real time.
In most cases once orders are submitted to our fulfillment partners they cannot be cancelled or modified. For more information, read the Cancellations section of our Return and Refund Policy.
Once orders have shipped, transit times vary by your location, and the origination location of the items you order. Most USA orders are delivered within 3-8 business days. Most orders shipped outside the USA are delivered within 6 to 14 business days. In some rare circumstances orders may take longer to arrive.
Many items ship same day or by the following business day. As we source and offer unique products from all over the world, processing time for some items can be from 1 to 5 business days. Processing times can vary by product, as we utilize multiple fulfillment partners (in the USA and Europe) to ship to you on our behalf, and set their own processing times between when we submit the order for fulfillment (usually the same day your order is received), and when they ship the product.
Virtually all orders are shipped with tracking included. Exceptions may include that your delivery location does not support end-to-end tracking through our available carrier options.
Orders that originate from our USA Fulfillment Partners have tracking that becomes available within 24 hours of shipment.
Orders that originate from Fulfillment Partners outside the USA have tracking numbers that may take a few Business Days to become trackable.
This does not mean the item is not in transit.
It means the local postal service from the country of origin has not updated global tracking records yet.
Once your order tracking activates, you will see all earlier records, and new records will update daily.
