Shipping & Returns

The Olive Tap Shipping Information


All orders will be shipped from our
Colorado Springs, CO location via UPS or UPS/SurePost for standard, residential addresses within the contiguous United States.  PO Boxes, Military Addresses and shipments to Alaska and Hawaii must be sent via USPS.  At this time, customers wishing to ship to such addresses must call the store (888-642-5472) to order over the phone.  

Orders generally ship within 1-3 days of receipt, not withstanding any order processing issues.  The shipping carrier's standard delivery times then apply, usually 3 to 5 business days for most shipments.  During the Holidays UPS transit times may be longer.  If you desire expedited shipping (e.g. UPS Next Day Air), please call the store to discuss options and rates  (888) 642-5472.

If there are any questions at all regarding shipping, please give us a call and we will work to answer your questions and accommodate any reasonable requests.

Incomplete/incorrect addresses that result in an extra charge ($11) by UPS will be charged to the customer.

Our Online Return Policy

Due to freshness of our oil and vinegar products and limited availability of select products, returns may be honored within 30 days of the confirmed delivery date by our shipping carriers.  If you wish to return an item, please call us for authorization at:   888-642-5472  Monday-Saturday 11:00 am to 5:00 pm CST.  Please request to speak with a manager regarding a return and have your Olive Tap Order Number on hand.  Returns will not be accepted without prior authorization. 

Refunds, Exchanges or Replacements:
Valid for products when authorized by management for return.  Products must be in the original packaging and in "resale" condition.  Defective items will be evaluated by management for either a replacement, exchange or return.   

Note:  Shipping costs (when applicable) are not refundable unless the product was damaged, defective or the product/order issue was the result of an error by The Olive Tap.   

Not Returnable for Refund, Exchange or Replacement:  Personalized or Custom Bottles, Individual Components of Gift Baskets, or Product Requests beyond the 30 day return window.

Undeliverable, Refused or Missing Shipments
The Olive Tap is not responsible for undeliverable or refused shipments by the recipient.  In the event of a returned package to The Olive Tap, we will contact the customer regarding the situation and work to coordinate a new delivery.  It is, however, the customer's responsibility to pay for the incremental shipping charges if re-shipment is requested.  If it is unable to be re-shipped, The Olive Tap will refund the amount of the order, less original shipping costs, to the customer.  

The Olive Tap is NOT responsible for shipments confirmed as delivered by UPS that were lost, stolen or not in the intended hands of the recipient. 

Again, please do not hesitate to give us a call if you have questions on your products, our return or shipping policies.  

Thank you,
The Olive Tap
