Buyers FAQ

[SEE OUR BUYERS FAQ PAGE ON OUR WEBSITE]
Can I request what samples I want in my sampler box?
No. No worries however, each box will be sorted out to make sure each sampler going out is equally divided up to ensure coolness.

How can I see what shops are contributing for the month?
All of our Contributors for each month will be on their own link page & on the blog. To see what items have arrived in Samplerville see our Sneak Peeks. Please note that each box will not contain every sample from every contributor that you see.  You can find the current month’s links to the Contributor list & sneak peeks from the buy a box page.

Do you ship to Canada & Internationally?
Of course. It costs $10.00 more for shipping to Canada and $18 more for international orders. To lower shipping costs international samplers will be mailed in a bubble mailer instead of a box. We apologize for the inconvenience but postage rates are outrageous these days and we want to keep it affordable for you.

How many samples will be included in each box?
Each month will be a little different depending on the size of the samples and how many we can fit in a box but for now we are having about 12-15 samples per box…each month we will let you know the variation numbers.

Can I return a sampler?
Sorry, there are no returns. If you find that you don’t like any of the samples they would be perfect to re-gift to friends, teachers, or co-workers.

How are the samplers mailed?
Flat rate USPS Priority Mail. International Samplers are mailed in bubble mailers.

Where does the box sales money go?

The huge answer is POSTAGE. Postage to pay for all of our customers & contributors sampler boxes. We want to also promote our awesome contributors so we will using money to mail samplers to media outlets. The website, domain, hosting, tape, bags for mailings, postage machine, misc. supplies, promotion for ICSampler, cardstock, printing, ink & toner, assembly, extras to cover samples if needed.


In my sampler, what is the bag with the business cards in it?

This is called our “promo pack”. It’s a way for every contributor if they choose, to be included in every sampler that is sent out, not just if their sample is included. We want to give our contributors every chance for exposure 🙂
