Shipments

💙 Are shipments tracked & how long do they take?
Yes they are, for international orders I send it with DHL 1-2 week shipment time.
For Australian orders I send it with  (untracked 2-5 days) for VIPINBUDS and Sendle Couriers ( 2-5 business days) for Super vipinbuds

💙 When do reward shipments go out?
They go out first week of each month as you get charged on the 1st of each month. I will be posting the shipment updates on patreon. 
💙 Can you combine my order from your shop with patreon rewards?
Sure thing, just let me know the order number by emailing [email protected] or messaging me here. I'll combine the orders when the monthly rewards go out.  I will then refund the appropriate shipping if that is possible. 

Subscriptions

💙 If I sign up mid month which month's rewards do I get?
You get charged on the day you sign up and get that month's reward. Afterwards you will get charged on the 1st of the next month.
eg: So if you sign up mid August, you will get the August month rewards and then you will be charged next on Sep 1st for September month rewards.

💙 What if I join & cancel all within a month?
You would be able to get the rewards of the month still. For eg: If you sign up in August, then drop out before Sep 1st, you will have get the August rewards as you would have been charged for August.

💙 I have to drop your patreon for a bit / i can't afford it right now, is it okay to sign up for a month and then drop??
Absolutely, don't worry at all you can come and go as you like.
