Help, I can't make my purchase!

If you are having issues with the link that your expert sent you or while checking out on your own, make sure that you're logged into your account. You should be able to see your item(s) through the link that your expert sent to you, but won't be able to pay unless you're logged in.

If you are logged in and it still doesn't work, we are so sorry - we're creating a new shopping experience and things sometimes break on our end. Please call us at (415) 855-1825 or message your expert about it or email support - we'll fix it immediately!

My payment got declined! What now?

Sometimes banks decline purchases over a certain size to protect your account from fraudulent activity. A large portion of the products we sell are over a few hundred dollars, and as a result you might see a ‘payment failed' statement on your purchase.

Solution: Luckily there's a simple fix! If your payment fails, please give your bank a quick call to authorize the payment and let your expert know when you're all set to try again.

For the safety of our community, we ban all fraudulent activity on our platform. This means that all your information is triple checked before a payment is processed. Please help us out by checking zip code and your billing address for typos!

Is your website secure?

Yes, we're using the latest technology to make sure your payments are secure. All payments are processed via Stripe (certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1, the best in class security for online payments) or PayPal. Your information is private unless you choose to share it with your expert or during the quiz. For more info, please read our Privacy Policy.

What forms of payments are accepted?

Pay however you'd like! We currently accept PayPal, and all major credit and debit cards via Stripe including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

When do you charge my card?

We charge your card during the checkout process to ensure everything is in order before shipment. Large purchases means larger risks, so we want to make sure we're good to go before shipping.

How do I unsubscribe or change the way I get notifications?

If you'd like change the way you interact with your expert, you can do so through the toggles on your notifications page. Please keep in mind that turning off all notifications will remove your ability to interact with your expert and receive personalized recommendations.

Where can I find my receipt?

After you make your purchase, you will be sent to a confirmation page with your receipt. We'll also send a receipt to your email, so please make sure we have your current email address on file. Anytime you need access to your receipt in the future, it will be available via the link you used to purchase your item as well as on your email.

Note: check your spam folder just in case our email was rejected by your inbox :(

Can I change or cancel my order?

Our team tries to ship orders as quickly as humanly possible. Because of this, we ask that you please make changes to your order within an hour of your original purchase. Obviously, we understand that things happen. If you change your mind about an order or put in the wrong shipping address or are nervous about sizing, please email us within an hour to ensure that we can help you do something about it!

What are your return and exchange policies?

Products: Our experts as well as the rest of our team want you to love your purchase but we understand that may not be the case 100% of the time (at least on the first try). Which is why we offer a 30-day peace of mind returns on most items. For more details please visit our returns page.

Experiences: Since we have a number of different Experiences on the platform, the quick answer is - it depends.

Prior to your Experience: Please refer to the details of your charter contract for our refund policy. Unless you agree to a non-refundable payment/deposit, we'd be happy to refund your money as long as it's 7 days prior to your experience. If you did sign contract that states a different policy, that is the one we will honor.

After your Experience: After you finish your meal at a restaurant, you'll have to pick up the check. In the same way, we unfortunately can't refund your payment after you've already enjoyed the amazing Curated Experience :) If it was obviously not the Experience you bought, please email us and we'll do our best to make things right.

I got shipped the wrong item! What do I do?

Products: First, we apologize for the inconvenience! We strive for 100% satisfaction, but we're human after all :) Please email us so that we can take care of it!

How long will it take to get my item?

We pride ourselves on working with local merchants and empowering small businesses as well as hiring passionate experts. That being said, sometimes shipping can be a little bit slower than buying something from that lightning fast e-commerce site based in Seattle. Real humans = a little more time, but a lot more passion. Generally, getting your item will take 7-10 business days, unless your expert tells you otherwise. If you'd like faster shipping, please tell your expert beforehand and they'd be happy to quote you for expedited shipping.

How do I track my order?

Your expert will send you tracking updates via text message, you can also find the update on your orders page(you must be logged in to see this information). Feel free to email us with any questions, even if you're just really jazzed about your order, we're happy to hear from you!

I just got my item and I'd really like to to tip my expert for their help, how do I do this?

We've got just the thing! All you have to do is go to our tip jar, add your tip amount and remember to include your experts name, your name and maybe a nice note to share your appreciation and we'll pass it along.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we’re now operating in New Zealand and Australia! Here’s what you need to know:

  • All prices on our website are in USD and all currency conversions are done by the bank or card company.
  • It usually takes 4-7 days to make delivery in NZ and AUS, though we've seen quick deliveries in 3 days (and we've seen slower deliveries too, usually because of a delay at the customs office).
  • We ship to both NZ and AUS for just $39 with a $125 order minimum. Unfortunately, items like helmets and gear bags are bulky and relatively inexpensive may catch a surcharge.
  • No duties are charged on our website, and it is our understanding that orders under $1000AU will not be levied duties when they arrive in Australia. Orders under $1000AUD will be charged 10% GST during checkout. Orders over $1000AUD will be charged both duties and GST when they arrive in Australia.
  • There is a 15% flat surcharge for New Zealand customs that may be included with your order.
  • It is always a good idea to check the duty rate on particular items to ensure you aren't cutting it too close. Click here for The New Zealand Customs Service website and here for the Australian Customs Service website.
Tracking number not working! What happened?

This usually means that the merchant has created the label but the shipping company hasn't processed it yet. If this happens, give it a few hours and hopefully your number will update immediately once the shipping company has it ready. If you've waited for a little bit already or you notice something else is wrong with tracking please email us as soon as you do and we'll check on it!

Where do I apply to become a merchant?

We're always excited to build relationships with new businesses. If you're interested in working with us, please email our partnerships team. We'd be happy to jump on a quick call to see if there's a fit!

How can I become an expert?

We want the most passionate and enthusiastic people to be a part of our team. If you'd like to become an expert, please tell us a little bit about yourself through our expert survey. We'll get back to you as soon as we can!
