purchase policies

last updated: september 1, 2016

1. orders; maximum quantities

placement of an order does not constitute acceptance of your order by philosophy. we may require additional information, and all orders are subject to product availability. we do not authorize the purchase of our products for resale purposes. we reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors or that may otherwise appear fraudulent. to enforce this policy, we may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel orders and/or quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. Additionally, we may cancel orders without notice due to insufficient supply, your noncompliance with offer terms, lack of bank authorization, system error, if your IP address is linked to a non-U.S. country, your use of a non-U.S. credit card, inability to verify your shipping address, any unforeseen problems, or for any other reason in philosophy’s sole discretion.

there is a maximum quantity of 9 of any one item number per customer, per order. this restriction may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. if you have additional questions about your order, please visit the consumer care section of philosophy.com, or call us at 1.800.568.3151 or through our contact us form.

what is auto-delivery?

philosophy’s auto-delivery program offers the convenience of having your favorite products shipped to you automatically on a schedule you choose, so that you never run out of your favorite product. With the auto-delivery program, shipping is free after the initial order!

getting started is easy. if a product has a frequency option, it’s available for auto-delivery. just select your desired size, quantity and delivery frequency, and add to your shopping bag. once you place your order, the product(s) you’ve set for auto- delivery will ship to you at the frequency you’ve chosen. you may modify or cancel your auto-delivery program (for orders that have not already been processed) by updating your account information on philosophy.com or by calling our customer service at 1.800.568.3151 see here for more.
