Domestic Shipping Policy
Shipment Processing Time
All orders are processed either on the same day or before 1:00pm ship next day or a maximum within 2-3 business days. Orders are not shipped on weekends or holidays.
If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, we will contact you via email or telephone.
Out of Stock or Backordered
We regularly stock every item we carry. Although every attempt is made to maintain an inventory of each product we carry, occasionally we may run out of certain products. In this case, we will attempt to mark the product “out of stock” on our website.
In the event that one of your items is out of stock, we will not delay the rest of your order. Your order will be shipped immediately. Backordered items are shipped as soon as they arrive. If your order consists of only one item, we will notify you if your item is out of stock.
If a product that you ordered is on backorder, then we will offer the following:
- Hold your order and ship once the missing product(s) arrive back in stock
- Or receive a refund or credit for the missing product(s).

We are committed to have a sustainable business and we try our best to collect and reuse shipping boxes from brick and mortar stores. You may see that your products come in a reused branded box or that the shipping box may arrive a little rough on the edges, this is because it’s living its second life. Whenever possible, we use envelopes made from recycled materials as these have a lower footprint.
Shipment to P.O. Boxes or APO/FPO Addresses
TerraSmart currently does not support shipping to P.O addresses within Canada and the U.S., U.S. Territories, and P.O/APO/FPO/DPO addresses.
Shipment Confirmation & Order Tracking
You will receive a Shipment Confirmation email once your order has shipped containing your tracking number(s). The tracking number will be active within 24 hours.
TerraSmart will charge an additional $10.00 CDN fee for shipments that are either re-routed after leaving our warehouse or are incorrectly addressed due to customer’s error. For parcels that return back to us will be charged with initial shipping charges with the same amount towards returns charges levied to us by the shipping company, In this case, the order will be refunded deducting all the shipping costs for sending and returns.
Shipping labels are generated directly from the shipping information you have entered. If you provide us with an incorrect postal code or other addressing error e.g. incorrect or missing apartment number, you will be charged the additional $10.00 CDN fee since the shipping company will charge us a fee for this correction, only if the package is in transit and you have informed us for the change of address. We do not guarantee that address can be changed in transit but we can certainly try to do so with shipping company if noted in due time after status is “shipped”.
TerraSmart is not liable for any products damaged or lost during shipping. If you received your order damaged, please contact the shipping carrier to file a claim.
Please save all packaging materials and damaged goods before filing a claim.
