After I place my order of 'Mango Mango', how long will it be until I receive it?
Under normal circumstances, orders will process within 7-10 business days. If the product is out of stock, please allow additional time for processing. Please note that processing is the time it takes for your order to leave our fulfillment center, not the amount of time it takes to be delivered to your door. You will receive an email when your order ships out with complete tracking information. However, as a result of the extraordinary volume of orders received in the response to our recent appearance on ABC's "Shark Tank" we temporarily switch to the more realistic 'As Seen on TV' standard of 4-6 week processing timeframe during peak times. During peak times, we work as quickly as possible to get back to our regular order processing time, but please keep in mind that while we hope never to hit the 4-6 week processing mark, increased volume such as during sales promotions, holiday sales, response to future TV appearances, new product introductions, etc will increase our order processing time.
