Q: What are the shipping options?

A: At Khimyan Curry we recognize the importance of processing your order as fast as possible. We, too, are consumers who buy things online and like to receive our orders right away, as in yesterday!

Q: Where is my shipment?

A: You will receive an email with tracking number once your order is shipped. You may check the delivery status online instantly.



Q: I received notification that my package has been delivered, but I don’t have it!

A: Occasionally, a carrier might scan a package and state that it was delivered before it actually arrives at its final destination. If within a few hours, you still do not have your package:

  • See if someone else accepted delivery. Check with household members, neighbours, building managers, the mail room, front desk, and anyone else who might have accepted the delivery.
  • Look around the delivery location. Carriers sometimes leave packages in a safe, hidden place like on a side porch, behind your fence, in/around your garage, or behind bushes.
  • Look for a notice of attempted delivery. You may find an attempted delivery notice in your mailbox or on your front door. Follow the instructions on that notice to request re-delivery or pick up the package. 


Q: Can I return the order?

A: If you don't like something, please tell us immediately. Our goal is to make you happy and fix things for both today and tomorrow and we will strive to do everything in our power to make things right. If you want to return something, just contact us first and we will take appropriate action to replace/exchange/refund or whatever it takes to make you happy. We do however ask you to submit the return details ASAP (preferably within a week of receiving your goodies, the contact details are outlined in the return form) so we can jump on things considering the perishable nature of our products. Returns and exchanges may be subject to a restocking fee.



Q: Is it safe to order online?

A: We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the security of your credit card information. To verify that you are safely connected to our secure server before submitting your financial information, check the lower edge of your browser window. A closed lock or key indicates that all communication between your computer and our server is securely encrypted.



Q: How do I know that my information will be protected?

A: We too dislike telemarketers disturbing us during dinner and junk mail and junk e-mail that clogs our mailboxes beyond belief, and therefore, we will never divulge your name, e-mail address, or anything about you to anyone (not even under physical duress).
