Shiva.com General Shipping and Packaging Information

When you place an order on shiva.com, we guarantee that the recipient will receive items that are freshly prepared by the best bakeries, delis and food producers. Each order is carefully prepared with top-quality baked goods, desserts, fruit, deli, fish and more. As these items originate from various locations throughout the United States, ground shipping and delivery times may vary. Orders are shipped through UPS, FedEx or USPS.

Shipped orders are not generally delivered on weekends or on the following major holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some perishable items may not be shipped over a weekend.

Please review this information regarding our current shipping policies and practices. If you have any further questions or would like to know more about our expedited shipping options please contact us directly at 877.788.6570.

When will my order be shipped?

Each product has a specific cut-off time for same-day shipping noted in the product description. Orders placed after the stated cut-off time will be shipped on the following business day, unless otherwise stated in the product description. We recommend that you refer to each individual product page for specifics regarding processing and cut-off times. For general guidance, the following schedule applies to most products:

  • Days in transit do not include weekends.
  • Overnight/Next Day orders shipped on a Friday will arrive on Monday.
  • 2-Day orders shipped on a Friday will arrive on Tuesday.

How will I know when my order has been shipped?

Once your order has shipped, you will receive a shipment notification email containing a tracking number, if available, for each package in your order.

How are orders packaged?

All items are freshly prepared and packaged in a timely manner. During the summer months, some of our more perishable items (such as chocolate) will be shipped in insulated boxes with icepacks to ensure that they arrive in their best condition.

Does someone need to be present to accept the delivery of a package?

No. Your items can be delivered to the recipient address without signature notarization. We ship all packages “signature release” because of the perishable nature of most of our items. This means USPS, UPS and FedEx will leave the package at the doorstep or gate associated with the recipient address without requiring a signature. Please advise the recipient of the estimated delivery time in order to ensure that the package is brought inside as soon as possible.

Can I ship to multiple addresses?

If you have chosen multiple items within the same order, you may select a different recipient address for each item. Once you have selected your desired items, proceed to your “Shopping Cart.” You will see that before you proceed to checkout there is an option to “checkout with multiple addresses.” Once you have entered and saved your recipient addresses, you will be able to select which items you would like sent to each address and proceed with your checkout.

What shipping carriers are used?

Our providers ship via UPS, FedEx or USPS. The shipping services that are available depend on three variables: the location of our provider, the delivery address and the “max allowable transit time” for the item.

When placing an order, please make sure to read the specific shipping information for the product you are ordering on the product description page.

Who do I contact if I have a problem with my order?

If you encounter any issues while placing an order or receiving a shipment, please contact us immediately. You may reach us by phone at 877.788.6570 or by email at service@shiva.com. Customer service representatives are available Mon - Fri. from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM EST.
