Editing Your Subscription and Cancellation Policy

  • Update subscriptions, including shipment delays (1-4 weeks) or cancellations, through your BirdBuddy store account.
  • Changes must be made at least 48 hours before your next scheduled shipment.
  • Late changes, after the 48-hour window, will not be processed, and refunds cannot be issued.
  • We do not accept returns for any canceled orders that have shipped already
  • If your seeds are compromised or have quality issues, contact us for a potential refund or replacement, pending our review process.
  • Should your order be lost in shipping, please get in touch with us for support.
  • If you manually cancel your Seed Subscription while you have an upcoming order of Seeds still pending, the cancellation process does not immediately set the subscription status to "Canceled", but shows instead as “Pending cancellation”. You will receive any pending orders from your current subscription period; however, the subscription's status will only be transitioned to Canceled on the next renewal date of your Seed Subscription and you will no longer be charged for or receive any future orders from that Subscription. 

Managing Your Subscription (FAQ)

Do I need an account to purchase seeds?

One-time purchases do not require an account.

How do I create an account?

  • An account will be automatically created when you subscribe for seed delivery. You'll provide your email and a shipping address during checkout, and a password will be set for you. After your first purchase, you'll get a confirmation email to finalize your account setup, allowing you to manage your account and subscription details.
