SUBSCRIPTIONS

1. Do I need to commit to anything after I subscribe?

NOT AT ALL! No commitment, no binding contracts, no fees for unsubscribing at anytime.

2. Can I cancel my subscription? How do I do that? 

Yes, whenever you want! There is absolutely no binding contract when you subscribe and you can cancel at anytime you’d like. As long as you cancel your subscription before the 9th of each month, we will not bill you for that month! Just create an account and go to manage subscriptions to delete your order. If you just wanted to skip a few months or take a break, refer to question 4. You can start again at anytime!

3. I just cancelled my YUMiBOX, but received one in the mail! What happened?

Most likely this is because you did not cancel your subscription 6 days in advance from our shipping date (15th every month). In other words, you must cancel before the 9th of every month to ensure you do not get billed! If this was not the case, please email us at: info@yumibox.com we will be sure to figure things out for you!

4. Can I skip a month if I go travel?

Absolutely! It’s easy too! If you have an account with us, simply login here and click Manage Subscription. Under the orders tab, you will see all your future shipment dates and the option to skip any month you’d like!

5. Can I get one box without the subscription?

Unfortunately, no. However, you can unsubscribe anytime! No questions asked, no fees charged. As long as you unsubscribe 6 days before our shipment date, we will not bill you.

6. Can I choose what flavor I want each month? What if I really like one?

Right now we have a set two flavors every month. Unfortunately you can not choose which flavor you want.

7. What if I want to buy a box as a gift for someone?

We are working hard on the gift card option for you to send to your loved ones. Stay tuned...


BILLING

1. When will I be billed?

You are billed the day you first subscribe. Afterwards, you will be billed on the 10th of every month after you have received your first YUMiBOX. Don’t worry, we won’t bill you twice for the same box!

2. What are the payment methods you accept?

We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
