Billing and Payments
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. In using our services, you may be charged local sales tax. By registering to become a member and providing your payment information, you agree that we may save your payment information for your convenience.
If your payment method is declined, we will attempt to process your charge until the transaction is approved. We, and our third party payment service providers, may request and receive, updated credit card information from your credit card issuer, such as updated card numbers and expiration date information when your credit card has expired. If such updated information is provided to us and our third-party payment service providers, we will update your account information accordingly, and will use such updated information to process payments for your future purchases and subscriptions. Your credit card issuer may give you the right to opt out of providing vendors and third-party payment service providers with your updated credit card information. If you wish to opt out of your credit card’s updating service, you should contact your credit card issuer directly.
We are not responsible for any fees or charges that your bank or credit card issuer may apply. If your bank or credit card issuer reverses a charge to your credit card, we may bill your account directly and seek payment through another method, including a mailed statement.
The risk of loss and title for items purchased by you through our services passes to you upon our delivery of the items to you. Replacement of products or credits to your account for shipped merchandise claimed by you as not received are subject to our investigation. After our investigation, we may credit your account in our sole discretion.
In the event a product is listed on our Site at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information provided by our retailers, we have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for such products in our sole discretion, whether or not your order has been confirmed and your bank or credit card charged. If your bank or credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we will issue a credit to your bank or credit card account in the amount of the cancelled charge.
Transactions involving Certain Products
You may have the option to order delivery of alcohol products in some locations and from certain retailers. You will not use Shipt to order alcohol products unless you are 21 years of age or older and you will not furnish alcohol products obtained through Shipt to any person who is not a lawful consumer. You agree that you will comply with all applicable laws related thereto and not cause Shipt, your Shopper, or any retailer to contravene or violate any applicable law. Shipt may offer information and a method to connect duly licensed, participating retailers to you to purchase alcohol beverages. Shipt does not, and does not intend to, make sales of alcohol beverages. Each participating retailer is the seller of record for the particular products it promotes on Shipt and sells to you. SHIPT HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR (I) ANY SALE OF ALCOHOL PRODUCTS OR DELIVERY OF SUCH PRODUCTS SOLD AND DELIVERED BY RETAILERS TO YOU OR ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR THIRD PARTY AND/OR (II) ANY ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY THAT MAY RESULT, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FROM THE PURCHASE AND/OR CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL PRODUCTS PROMOTED OR ACQUIRED THROUGH SHIPT.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse to offer the delivery of certain items. In the event we choose to refuse to offer certain products after you have placed your order but before the product is delivered to you, we may cancel the portion of your order related to that product and issue a credit to your bank or credit card account in the amount of your cancelled charge.
