FedEx Ground Service Map:

Which mail carriers do you use?

Umami Mart uses FedEx Ground and USPS Priority Mail for all domestic shipping. Shipment speeds depend on the options and destinations specified for shipping. A tracking number is emailed to the buyer once the package is ready to ship. Shipping costs will be calculated once items are placed in the cart and the “ship to” address is specified.

Do you ship internationally?

We ship to Canada only, via FedEx Ground or USPS Priority International and USPS Priority Express International. Please call us for special international orders.

Why am I getting an error saying "There are no shipping methods available for your cart or destination"?

This is most likely because you have alcohol in your cart and are attempting to have items shipped to a state we can not ship alcohol to. Please note we are presently only able to deliver alcoholic products to AK, CA, DC, ID, MN, MO, ND, NH, NV, NM, OR, VA, WA, and WY.

My package was never delivered. Can you send me another package?

For lost or stolen packages: No. Umami Mart is not responsible for lost or stolen packages. Please call the shipping carrier you chose to resolve the matter. Please also note that USPS First Class Mail does not provide insurance. Please ship using these methods at your own risk. Umami Mart can not be responsible for lost or untraceable packages.

For packages with undeliverable address or absent recipient: No. Umami Mart is not responsible for packages that were undeliverable due to an incorrect address that was inputted at checkout or because the recipient was absent. If the package is returned to Umami Mart due to an undeliverable address or absent recipient, we will contact the customer.
