Terms of Service

Payment Methods

We accept the following payment methods on our web site:

Credit Card: Sage Meditation accepts All Major Credit Cards. When checking out, enter your billing information for your credit card and select Credit Card for payment. The billing address MUST MATCH the billing address registered with the Credit Card. If you have a separate shipping address, you will be able to add that during the checkout process. NOTE: If your billing address is a PO Box and your order ships via UPS or FedEx Ground, you must enter a physical street address for the Shipping Address or you will receive an error message. 

Checkout with PayPal (PayPal Express): You can Check out easily by clicking "Check out with PayPal". In this case, a window will pop up allowing you to log into your PayPal account to complete the checkout process. You may need to allow Pop Ups in your Browser to utilize this feature. Your shipping address will be transferred to our web site from your PayPal account. If you have more than one shipping address, you will need to choose the shipping address you want to use. NOTE: Our website cannot calculate the Shipping Charge until it has the Shipping Address from PayPal, so the Shipping Charge will be calculated once you have selected your shipping address.

Amazon Pay: You can Check out easily by clicking "amazon pay: USE OUR AMAZON ACCOUNT". You will log into your Amazon account where your billing address, shipping address(es), and preferred payment method are stored. You may need to allow Pop Ups in your Browser to utilize this feature. NOTE: Our website cannot calculate the Shipping Charge until it has the Shipping Address from Amazon, so the Shipping Charge will be calculated and added to your order once you have selected your shipping address.

SPECIAL NOTE about Amazon Pay: Sage Meditation is not affiliated with Amazon and simply offers Amazon Pay as a payment option. If you are an Amazon Prime member, free shipping offers are not available through Sage Meditation. You are offered the same protections that come with any Amazon purchase, but shipping charges are calculated and applied to your order.

All payments are processed at the time of placing your order. If your order is canceled for any reason, you will be fully refunded.


Why we don't offer free shipping

Free shipping is never free. Shipping companies do not ship for free and, somehow, the cost has to be paid. Many companies cover free shipping by adding the cost to the products. Because shipping costs are directly related to how far a package has to travel, some people will get a bargain with free shipping and most people will being paying more than if they were simply charged the actual shipping cost to deliver their order. We believe everyone gets a fair deal if they are only charged the actual shipping charge instead of paying a flat shipping charge that is hidden in the price of the product. Would you rather pay $100 and get free shipping, or pay $75 plus $14.95 for shipping. The second option is cheaper, of course.


Order Completeness & Shipping Damage

Upon receiving your order, please check to ensure the order is correct, complete and undamaged. Your order may be filled by more than one shipment. We will send you tracking numbers for each shipment in your order. We may notify you by email and through notes on your Sage Meditation Sales Receipt or Invoice if your order is being filled by more than one shipment.

If your order is missing any items, is incorrect, or has suffered any damage during shipping, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can correct the problem. In most cases, shipping costs involved with replacing incorrect, defective, or damaged items will be paid by Sage Meditation.


Sage Meditation Exchange Process

Exchanges are handled by a process of returning the unwanted item and ordering the desired item. If you are not satisfied with the color of your cushion and it has a removable cover, you may wish to order a Replacement Cover and return the covers of the unwanted cover. This will be much less costly in terms of shipping

You must contact us before returning any items per our Return Policy and Procedures which follow.


Sage Meditation Return Policy and Procedures

Sage Meditation offers a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee on your purchase. We are committed to your satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you may request to return it within 30 days of receiving it for a refund. Some restrictions apply. Shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer. Returns are not accepted after 30 days.

Order Changes and Cancellations

We oftentimes ship orders within 1 business day. If you wish to change or cancel your order, please Contact Sage Meditation Customer Service as soon as possible. If you call and receive our Voice Mail, we suggest you also send us an email to ensure all communication channels have been utilized to inform us of your wish to change or cancel the order.

Special Note for American Express Cardholders

We charge your credit card at the time you complete your order. American Express charges a 3.5% fee to us for processing payments with their cards. They do not refund this fee when we refund your card. For this reason, order cancellations where an American Express card was used are subject to a 3.5% deduction on your refund. This deduction does not occur with refunds related to order returns or fraudulent charges on an American Express card.


Gift Cards

  • The State of Wisconsin has no specific regulations for Gift Card Sales. Therefore, we follow Federal Guidelines for Gift Card Sales.
  • Gift cards cannot be returned or refunded.
  • Gift cards that have not been redeemed after 5 years from the date of purchase are considered abandoned and are no longer redeemable.
  • A non-use fee of $10 is deducted from the Gift Card's value after each 12 months of non-use.

Refunds

Once a return is received, refunds will be made within 5 business days. This is to allow time to open and inspect the return, and to determine the appropriate refund amount and method.

The original shipping charge is not refundable when an order/item is returned voluntarily.

Where a shipping label is provided to the customer by Sage Meditation, the return shipping cost will be deducted from the refund when an order/item is returned voluntarily.

Refunds can only be made to the original purchaser of the order. If the purchaser's credit card has expired since the purchase was made, a check will be issued to the original purchaser and a $2.00 processing fee will be deducted from the refund. Sage Meditation is not responsible for any fees incurred by the purchaser's credit card issuer, bank, or by PayPal.

If the purchase was made as a gift, refunds may be issued to the recipient in the form of a Gift Certificate.

If, after a reasonable period of time, you have not received a refund, please contact us. Please do not contact your credit card company as this may result in a charge back. If this should occur, Sage Meditation reserves the right to deduct any charge back fees from the refund.


Purchase Orders

We accept Purchase Orders from Government and Educational institutions only. Payment terms are 30 days maximum for orders of $100 or more (before the shipping charge). Orders for less than $100 require immediate payment.

Please contact us to arrange purchase by Purchase Order, to request a W-9, and to make payment arrangements. It is best to contact us by Email with the order details so that we can provide you with the total charge for the order before you write your Purchase Order.
