Shipping & Return Policy

SHIPPING

We ship out orders only in the US, no later than two business days after the balance on your order has been processed. Upon shipment, you will receive a shipping notification email with the shipment service and tracking information. We may not process, ship or deliver your order during weekends or holidays. International deliveries are not available at this time.

Please note that delivery time can be affected by holidays, weather conditions, customs laws or other variables which are beyond our control.

We do not hold responsibility for delayed deliveries or lost packages due to incorrect or incomplete addresses provided by the customer. We do not have control over where the delivery service places your package. You will be notified by email when your package is prepared, and we will include a tracking number for your convenience.

We hold no responsibility for the delivery location on the specified premises as we do not oversee where the delivery person drops off your package. You may bring these specifications up to your door person or leave a note on your door for whomever is delivering your package.

Undeliverable packages are usually returned to us at an extra shipping cost. Once the undeliverable packages are retrieved, we will cancel the order and process the refund immediately. Please note that all shipping costs are non-refundable. If the returned package requires any extra shipping costs, we deduct it from the final refund. We do not refund or replace items unless we receive the returned packages.

Gift to Korea Shipping: Currently our shipping address only takes ones in the U.S. by default. Before checking out, you will have the option to provide the recipient's information on the product page (it helps our producer a lot if you type in the address in Korean). However, when checking out, you must input any U.S. address in the shipping address or it will prevent you from checking out.

Premium Kimchi from Korea: Kimchi is made-to-order freshly in Korea then shipped directly to your home.

Any orders placed by 11:59pm, Thursday EST will be made fresh on the following Monday (in Korea time), and depart for the U.S. by Wednesday. You can expect your kimchi to arrive at your door in the U.S. by Friday that week. (i.e. You placed an order on 5/25 (W) then you will receive it by 6/3 (F))

We are not responsible for how the delivery is handled, especially because these are being shipped from Korea and not handled from our Brooklyn warehouse. However, for any damages to products a gift card of $15 will be provided for every damaged product received in the HaeDamChon Kimchi order.

SHIPPING ON PRE-ORDERS

At Kim'C Market we strive to ensure that you receive only the best. This ethos extends to our shipping methods. Frozen items are shipped overnight in an insulated shipping box with dry ice to make sure the products stay frozen. Fresh items are made-to-order freshly in Korea and then shipped to you. 

In doing so, the shipping material and shipping costs are extremely high. We did not want to sacrifice the quality of the product by choosing a cheaper shipping option. We had to make a hard choice by implementing a shipping charge for these pre-order items. We will be charging a shipping fee of 40-100% on your order according to the shipping zone and we will cover the rest. Thank you for your understanding of this circumstance.

RETURNS & EXCHANGES

You may return new, unopened items within 7 days of delivery for a full refund. Items must be returned in new or unused condition and contain all original materials included with the shipment. Products that have been used will be refused and returned to sender at the sender's expense. If the return is a result of our error, we will refund the full cost of the merchandise and shipping charges. Additional guidelines are also noted below.

Items that are not refundable:

- Items more than seven (7) days after delivery

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If your returned item(s) is approved, we will then process the refund immediately. A credit will be applied to your credit card or other original methods of payment, within 5 to 7 business days.

If for any reason, we are unable to fulfill your order, we reserve the right to cancel the order. In the event of the cancellation, customers will receive full refunds.
