Some important things to ensure you are familiar with so we are all on the same page:
Payments & Processing
Weekly subscription customers:
Orders are processed (and payment taken after week 1) on Wednesdays however, your fresh seasonal organic produce will be lovingly selected from the best on offer at the farmers markets in the wee hours of the morning, packed and delivered to you on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (depending on your catchment area) in the PM. Any changes to your recurring order need to be done BEFORE 5pm Wednesday.
When you first place your order with The Organic Scarecrow for a weekly delivery, payment for week 1 is deducted from your credit card/ paypal account at the time of purchase, and then for every weeks order after the first, payment will be deducted from your credit card/ paypal account on the Wednesday prior for delivery on the following week. This is because we need to provide commitment to our amazing farmers and place our order with them prior to heading out to the markets at sparrows fart to ensure we get their best prices and best produce and be waste free.
Casual one-off customers:
Orders can be placed up until 5pm Sunday for delivery the next day (or Tuesday or Wednesday depending on catchment area) Payment for your one-off order is processed immediately upon confirming your order via our website.
Your first recurring order:
All first time recurring orders are processed immediately upon confirming your order via our website. Orders can be placed up until 5pm Sunday for delivery the next day (or Tuesday or Wednesday depending on catchment area) After your initial payment is processed all consecutive payments will be processed weekly on a Wednesday evening so any changes, skips, or additions need to be done before 5pm Wednesday.
