Shipping Time: Following placement of your order, please allow approximately 3-4 business days for us to prepare your order for shipment. We are a small but rapidly growing business. A shipping confirmation notice is e-mailed after orders are shipped. If you do not receive one, please check your spam folder and/or adjust your e-mail filter settings.
Shipping Insurance and Signature Confirmation: In order to keep customer shipping costs down, domestic and international first class shipments are not automatically insured (Priority Mail shipments are automatically insured). Lakshmi’s Cupboard is not responsible for events outside of our control such as domestic packages damaged, lost, tampered with, rifled through or misdirected by USPS or stolen by a third party. If you would like to have your first class mail order shipped with insurance please submit the request in the comments box on the check-out page. This requires an additional fee of between 1-3 dollars which will be added to your total after checkout. Please note that this service may not extend to military addresses.
