FAQs Answers to Your Questions
Is Ground Shipping always free?
Yes! As long as you buy 6+ bottles (mix and match as freely as you like) in the shopping cart then the shipping is on us. Occasionally we may offer certain wines with a smaller amount for free shipping, as well. This applies to anywhere we ship in the U.S., but excludes Alaska and Hawaii.
How can I earn and use credits at Invino?
You earn credits toward future purchases simply by inviting your friends. If a friend signs up for an account through your referral, they receive $10 in credits when opening their account, and you receive $30 in credits when they place their first order - easy as pie!
How long before I receive my wine?
During our regular shipping season, your order ships within 2-5 business days (oftentimes, even sooner!). If your state is sent via Third Party Shipping (Refrigerated Ground), orders are shipped each Thursday. You will receive a shipping confirmation email once tracking is available. Tracking is also uploaded to your account the following Monday. Tracking will not show any activity until scanned at your state’s area hub. Once scanned, your tracking link will start to show activity and provide you with an accurate ETA. Delivery is then made within a day or two (occasionally three) depending on your distance from the area hub. Please note that refrigerated shipping takes roughly 1-3 weeks to get to you.
In the summer months (typically May-October) we will hold your order (if you select HOLD at checkout) until the temperatures have lowered to a safe shipping temperature. This is for your benefit and the integrity of your wine! Heat is wine's worst enemy. Otherwise, we have summer shipping options available at checkout.
If your order isn't received in 10 business days, please email us at [email protected]
I want you to ship my wine ground mid-July in a heat wave. Can you?
Choosing the hold option during the summer months is always your best bet. But if you need that bottle now (trust me, we understand), your next best option is utilizing an ice pack (option for most states at checkout). Keep in mind, inclement weather can cause popped corks, leakage, and major damage. Even an ice pack will give out within a couple days transit in high temps, so keep that in mind when choosing your shipping/hold method on the checkout page.
The hold option will keep your wine in our temp controlled warehouse until the weather cools (typically our heat hold runs from May to October, with variation each year).
The wine that I want to order is no longer on the website. How do I order it?
We put up a new wine offer each day. Usually we sell out, and when it's gone, it's gone, right? Well, there's always a possibility of a customer cancellation. Feel free to email us at [email protected] in the off chance quantity is still there.
It is too hot to ship now but I want to buy today's wine.
We can hold for up to two weeks during the regular shipping season, and for an extended period of time during the summer season. If you have a specific ship date, choose a shipping option at checkout, and put your requested ship date in the shipping notes box. If you want to hold for the summer and ship in the fall when temps cool, choose the hold option at checkout.
How do I return a defective product?
Just email us at [email protected]! We stand behind every bottle we sell, and we know that sometimes you can get a bad bottle (just like with a dozen eggs or a dozen oysters, right?). If you feel you have a bad bottle, please let us know via email, and we'll take care of it for you.
Can I use a faster shipping method?
Yes. We offer Overnight and 2 Day Air at reduced costs to most states. Wine is heavy and the cost to ship faster is expensive, but as always, we will quote you the lowest price we can.
What payment options do I have?
You can pay using Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. We do not accept checks or money orders.
Can I send my order as a gift?
Of course! Who doesn't like wine as a gift? Just enter a message in the gift message section at checkout, and we'll send it along, making sure NOT to include an invoice.
Can I buy a gift certificate?
We don't have physical gift certificates, but you are welcome to purchase gift credits to put into another account. Just email us at [email protected] to set this up!
