Shipping Policy

Women’s Bean Project makes every effort to process and ship orders as quickly and accurately as possible. While this is our goal, please keep in mind that we operate a transitional employment training business, so errors do occasionally occur. If your order should arrive containing an error or with any damage to your product, please know that we will use it as a teaching moment with the women working in our business. Please contact us immediately with any issues and we will work with you to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

Shipping Lead Times

Our business hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday MST. Orders are processed and shipped daily (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, holiday and inventory closures). All orders ship from our facility in Denver, CO.

Retail Orders: Typically ship within 2-3 business days after processing, and 4-7 business days after processing during the holiday season (October-December).

Wholesale Orders: Typically ship 3-5 business days after processing, and 5-8 business days after processing during the holiday season (October-December).

Holiday Order Deadlines

Please place your orders by the following dates to receive your orders by Christmas.*

  • Retail Economy (orders with Economy shipping): December 5, 2022
  • Retail Standard: December 12, 2022
  • Retail Priority/Express (orders with Rush shipping): December 15, 2022

*Women’s Bean Project allows for the timing of shipments based on shipping carrier suggested ship dates. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your orders will arrive before Christmas. Once your order leaves our facility it is up to the shipping carrier to deliver the package on time. We do our absolute best to ensure that your orders leave our facility in a timely manner to allow for the increased holiday lead times for the shipping carriers.

Shipping Methods

Retail Orders

We offer three flat rate shipping tiers for retail orders based on transit times from our facility in Denver, CO. Retail only tiers:

Wholesale Orders

We offer free Ground or freight shipping on wholesale orders of $650.00 or more. Expedited orders over $650.00 do not qualify for free shipping.

Shipping Carriers: FedEx, USPS and Freight.

PO Boxes

Please provide a physical address instead of a PO Box whenever possible. Shipping charges increase significantly when shipping to a PO Box due to the limited carriers that will accommodate a PO Box delivery. We do not ship wholesale orders to a PO Box.

Incorrect Address

If an order is ‘returned to sender’ due to an incorrect/invalid address, we will contact the customer via the email provided on the order for an updated mailing address.

Once we have the corrected mailing address, we will resend the order at no charge to the customer if the shipping fees do not exceed $30.00. If the shipping charges are greater than $30.00, we will request payment for the additional shipping charges and will not reship the order until these fees are collected.

If we do not receive a reply within 10 business days, the contents of the order will be returned to inventory and no refund will be issued.

International Shipping

We can only ship within the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii). We do not ship internationally or to military bases.
