3. Why should I order from Shop Vanillapup?
When you shop at Shop Vanillapup, you are browsing hundreds of products that were individually handpicked by the Vanillapup team. We do not list products that
- contain nasties or subpar ingredients or materials
- are poorly designed or made
Each product has gone through our strict approval process and we hope that this will shine through as you shop with us.
Also, we are always finding ways to reward our loyal shoppers to help them save! Scroll down to our "Loyalty Program" section for more information.
4. What if I bought an item that's cheaper elsewhere?
At Shop Vanillapup, we offer competitive prices for premium products because we understand the satisfaction of getting the highest possible value from our purchases.
Hence, if you have just purchased a product from us that you found is significantly cheaper at another local retailer, we would be happy to refund you the difference in the form of a credit voucher.
The comparing item must be:
Local - sold by a local retailer and not delivered from overseas
Identical - same brand, make, model, size, colour, version, packaging, and quantity
Regular-priced - standard, non-discounted, non-promotional, and non-subscription price
Currently-in-stock - available for purchase during the entire claim process
How to claim:
1. Prepare the URL or photos clearly showing the retailer's name and the product's lower regular selling price and packaging
2. Submit your claim within 7 calendar days of your original purchase
3. We will respond to your claim within 3-5 working days. Once approved, the difference will be sent to you in the form of a credit voucher for future purchases
We reserve the right to deny claims that are determined to be ineligible or if we suspect abuse or misuse of our price match guarantee. Credit vouchers are valid for a year and cannot be used in conjunction with other discount codes. Our price match guarantee terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.
5. Would I ever get a product that's too close to expiry?
We ensure that all products we deliver are at least 6 months from their expiry dates. If you are buying in bulk, do let us know and we will ensure that they have long enough shelf lives to last your intended use period.
From time to time, products that are close to expiry may be sold at a discount and that will be clearly communicated.
6. Is delivery free?
Local doorstep delivery is free for orders over S$50. For orders below S$50, a flat delivery fee of S$8 applies.
For overseas shipping, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the item(s) you would like to purchase and your delivery address. We will get back to you within 3 working days with the cost of delivery.
7. When will my item(s) arrive?
We dispatch all in-stock items within 3 working days after order confirmation (unless stated otherwise). You can expect delivery within 1-3 working days. However, during festive periods, it may take 4-5 working days.
For out-of-stock items, we will notify you via email or Whatsapp. If you are unable to wait for the stock to arrive, you can make changes to your order or request for a refund via the same payment mode you used to purchase the item. However, do note that if the order amount becomes less than S$50, a flat delivery fee of S$8 applies.
If you need your order urgently, please email us at email@example.com and we will try our best to work something out. However, do note that an additional fee may apply.
8. What if the delivery arrived while I am not home?
If the first delivery attempt by SingPost is unsuccessful, the parcel may be dropped into your letterbox or a delivery advice slip may be left at your door for you to arrange for redelivery (if applicable) or self-collection at a designated post office or POPStation.
If a courier service is used, the company will attempt delivery again. To reschedule a delivery, please contact the company directly.
If the addressee fails to receive or collect the parcel stipulated by the delivery company, the parcel will be returned to us. Please understand that a delivery charge of S$8 applies for us to arrange another delivery.
9. Do you ship outside of Singapore?
Thanks for your interest! We are based in Singapore but if you reside overseas, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the item(s) you would like to purchase and your delivery address. We will get back to you within 3 working days with the cost of delivery.
10. Can I return my item?
All items from Shop Vanillapup are thoroughly checked before delivery, but in the event that an incorrect or defective item has been sent to you, we will provide a refund under the following conditions:
- You must email us at email@example.com within 3 calendar days of receiving the order with your order number and picture(s) of the item
- You must return the item to us using a traceable mode of delivery within 7 calendar days. Keep your receipt for return shipping refund. We are not responsible for any lost mail
- The item must be returned unused and undamaged with the original packaging and tag intact
