Payments, shipping, taxes, and discounts

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express as well as institutional purchase orders and personal checks. Our Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) is 33-0688033. Shipping charges are based on the pre-tax subtotal. For ground delivery anywhere in the United States on orders under $70, add $6.95; orders between $70 and $800, add 10%; orders between $800 and $2000, add 7%; and on orders over $2000, add 5%. For Next, 2nd, 3rd Day or international orders, shipping choices and pricing appear at checkout (prior to submittal of your order). On international shipments, please note that every country has its own regulations concerning duties, and brokerage fees. These charges are not established (or collected) by Acorn Naturalists, but may add to the cost of goods received.

Orders originating from California locations are taxed at the 7.25% state tax rate (calculated on the order subtotal before shipping). For orders originating within Orange County, California, 7.75% sales tax is added. Orders from locations outside of California are not taxed.

All products are discounted 10% when ordering 10 or more of the same item, with the exception of product sets (which already have been discounted), and sale items. In addition, many product series are noted as featuring "mix and match" pricing which gives you 10% off when ordering a total of 10 or more items (can be one each of 10 different items within the series and you still get 10% off each one). We also offer deep discounts of 25-60% on many hundreds of sale items found on our website. In addition, we are glad to provide custom bids for resources not on our website or for large quantities of individual resources.
