A market based platform that connects businesses to independent contractors who will help the business fulfill customer orders and requests by delivery. The job is created by the business, and the price is determined by the two parties together, with the business having final say on who his or her driver is.
Every EpiFruit business or EpiFruit business partner should reach out to customer service in case of an emergency or something isn't proper with there delivery order. Here are instances where an additional expense would be incurred to the business: if the driver is picking up more than the order details provided to them--for every extra product-the additional cost is $3 per item to the retailer cancellation fee of $5 applies to business for the following: - if the driver is 5/6 of the way to you, and a business cancels - if driver has to return to the store with goods because unable to fulfill delivery due to customer not available - if a driver has to shift mid drive to another address - if a business cancels order after it's been picked up
Please reach out to customer service about your disputes and we will handle accordingly. Thank you
At EpiFruit we guarantee up to $100 in damage or lost goods. Please present your case to the EpiFruit Support team and we'll be glad to help you out. Please note if a product is signed for by the business and by the customer the job is considered completed to full satisfaction and we cannot provide any funds.
At EpiFruit our goal is to guarantee the satisfaction of both parties. We suggest when providing order details, that the business not only place the order details of what's going out including the customers name, but also include the quantifiable amount of the total receipt under "receipt price." This will solidify your case with any on-going disputes on your end if that ever may be the case.

No delivery time can be guaranteed as each driver selected by the retailer will have different locations-it's ultimately up to the retailer to decide who he or she chooses. Each business will have an understanding of who they are choosing, the price of the drive, the mode of transportation, and how far each EpiFruit partner is from the location of the business.
For the time being we are not able to fulfill cash deliveries as we cannot guarantee the return of cash. We are a market place and putting two parties together, however, our goal is to ultimately create an environment where both sides thrive, and cash deliveries would be too big of a liability to help facilitate.
The EpiFruit partner will follow the instructions you provide and deliver in that manner. The item can be left with intended recipient or doorman if applicable (business needs to require that direction if the case)
