Frequently Asked Questions
|Can I update my address?||Only the original person who placed the order (the cardholder) can update their address. As long as the order has not shipped, we can update your address. Please send us an e-mail (from the e-mail address associated with the order) with the order name and the correct address to which you are looking to ship. If the order has shipped, we cannot update your address.|
|Can I cancel my order?||If your item hasn't shipped, send a cancellation request to Session Support: firstname.lastname@example.org and a team member will assist you. If your order has shipped, we cannot cancel the order but will help you create a return.|
|Why is there an authorization on my bank statement if my order didn't go through?||If your order has not been successfully processed, our system would not have charged your card. However, you may still see an authorization or hold on your account. In most cases, these will go away automatically within 1-3 business days and will not post to your account but will remain "pending" until cleared. If you have any issues, don't hesitate to contact our support team; we'll be happy to assist.|
Shipping & Returns:
|What are my shipping options?||
During checkout, customers can choose their preferred shipping option:
- Expedited Shipping: 1-2 Business Days once shipped.
- Standard Shipping:, 4-6 Business Days once shipped.
- Free Shipping: 7-14 Business Days once shipped - orders $100+ in Continental US.
*Orders take 1-2 business days to process before shipment.
|When will my items ship?||For most shipments, orders placed before 2:30pm EST will receive tracking within 2 business days. Items ordered over the weekend will not ship until the warehouse re-opens Monday (not including Holidays). This period is subject to change if a delay or backorder is noted on our website banner or a specific product page. We cannot guarantee arrival dates or times. While we try our best to prevent any delays, orders may be held up due to unforeseen circumstances.|
|Where is my tracking number?||Once an order is placed, you will receive an order confirmation email. At this point, your order has been confirmed, but it has not been processed. Once the box is packaged and a shipping label is created, you will receive a second e-mail containing a tracking number. Most tracking numbers will not update within the first 24 hours.|
|Do you require a signature on your packages?||We understand this can be inconvenient, but most items over $200 will be shipped with the signature verification to protect you from theft. Session Goods reserves the right to add signature requirement to any order at our discretion for security reasons. This is to prevent fraud and underage orders. We take preventing illicit, underage, or fraudulent orders very seriously.|
|How are my items shipping? Will people know I just bought a cannabis accessory?||Session pieces come in a custom box with built-in foam or paper-pulp trays. We ship all of our products in unassuming brown boxes. However, "Session Corp'' will show up on your billing statement. We cannot change this due to some of our payment provider regulations, and we apologize for the inconvenience.|
|What happens if my items break during shipping?||
In the unlikely event you receive a damaged or defective item, Session Goods will replace it at no cost. Notify the Session Support team within 72 hours of delivery with an order number and a few photos of the packaging and damaged item(s). We'll take care of the rest.
*Please don't throw anything away until you speak with a Session Support team member. We might need the package back! We always provide a prepaid return shipping label if you're asked to ship a package.
|Do you offer free shipping on returns?||We do not offer free return shipping at this time. Session Support will provide you with a shipping label. Once we receive the return and confirm the state of the product, Session Goods will issue a refund less the original shipping amount.|
|How long do I have to make a return?||Returns must be requested within two weeks of receiving the product. Once a case is approved, the order must be sent back within 30 days of approval. All cases older than 30 days that have not been sent in or given further communication will be canceled and archived, no longer eligible for return or exchange.|
|How do I ensure I get a full refund?||Only unused items in an undamaged box will be issued store credit or a refund. Once your returned item(s) are received and inspected, we will process the requested exchange, return, or store credit. Session Goods will give returns for store credit the total value of the product. Items returned for a refund will be assessed, and if needed receive a flat $5 repackaging fee per item. If no repackaging is necessary, the fee will be waived.|
|How do I use Sezzle to pay for my order?||During checkout, select Sezzle as your payment method. After clicking “Complete Order”, you will be redirected to Buy Now, Pay Later with Sezzle to complete your purchase securely. You’ll receive an order confirmation email from Session Goods, and a separate email with your payment schedule from Sezzle. Paying with Sezzle means you’ll pay 4 interest-free payments over 6 weeks. Sezzle will automatically collect your first payment when your order is placed and the remaining three payments every two weeks.|
|Will I be charged interest?||No, Sezzle doesn’t charge you interest to pay in installments. You’ll pay the same order total, but divided into four equal payments.|
|Why don’t I see Sezzle as a payment option during checkout?||Only eligible orders can be paid for with Sezzle. You won’t see Sezzle as a payment option if your order is less than $35.|
|Who do I contact if I have questions about my Sezzle payments or refund?||Please contact Sezzle directly for questions regarding Sezzle payments and refund|

Your registration and your user information
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your User Information. You are also solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under Your Registration or Your User Information. You must notify us immediately of any suspected or actual unauthorized use of Your Registration or Your User Information, and of any and all other security breaches. We shall not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else using your account, username, or password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by us, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account, username, or password.
We reserve the right to terminate Your Registration or to refuse services to you, without prior notice to you, at any time and for any or no reason.

In many instances, we have agreed to sell certain Products offered for sale on the Site subject to what is referred to as a "minimum advertised price," or "MAP" policy. MAP is the lowest price that distributors and other resellers are allowed to publicly display a product for sale. This practice is used by some manufacturers to protect the integrity of their product(s) and brand. Generally, authorized retailers of a MAP protected product agree to adhere to these guidelines, failing which they risk losing the right to sell the product subject to that MAP policy. In addition, buyers may not be able to take advantage of post-sale services (i.e., warranty repair) when purchasing from a retailer that does not comply with a manufacturer’s MAP policy.
MAP policies are intended to protect consumers and sellers from disreputable dealers, giving all authorized retailers specific guidelines on how to advertise the price of the MAP product(s). This helps to ensure that buyers will be able to access the high level of service the manufacturer wants purchasers of their product(s) to receive.
If you have any questions regarding whether a particular Product purchased on the Site is subject to a MAP policy, please contact us.

1. You are shopping on a merchant’s website (the “Merchant”).
2. If you place a Qualifying Customer Order, the Product(s) that you are purchasing will be sold first by the Merchant to Passport Global Inc (“Passport”) and then by Passport to you under these Terms and Conditions. Your payment information, shipping address, and any additional information required or requested to complete your order will be shared directly with Passport and its nominated agents and contractors in order to enable Passport to complete your Qualifying Customer Order.
3. Your Qualifying Customer Order is subject to: (1) these Terms and Conditions; and (2) any relevant terms and conditions imposed by the Merchant. By completing your purchase, you confirm that you have read and agree to be bound by all of these. By placing a Qualifying Customer Order on the Merchant’s website, you understand and agree that:
3.1 You are dealing with and providing your information to Passport. Passport may contact you about your order.
3.2 If there is an error in the price listed for a Product on the Merchant’s website, or in the price applied to the product during the sale of and processing of your order for the Product, Passport and its nominated agents are entitled to contact you, correct the price, and/or cancel your order.
3.3 The Merchant remains responsible for handling payment for your order.
3.4 Once your payment is processed, ownership of the items will shift from Passport, to you.
3.5 Certain addresses will be ineligible for shipment, such as PO box addresses.
3.6 Passport may refuse service, refuse to process or complete Qualifying Customer Orders, remove or edit content, or cancel such orders for any reason or for no reason, in its sole discretion.
3.7 If you are under the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside, the approval of your parent or guardian is required to complete your purchase.
3.8 You authorize Passport and its nominated agents and contractors to perform any of the following activities in connection with the delivery of any Products: (i) to act as your agent to make and file customs declarations and all related actions as your direct representative, which expressly includes completing any documents, amending product or Harmonised System codes, and paying any duties, taxes or penalties required under applicable laws and regulations; (ii) to act as forwarding agent for customs import and export control purposes solely for the purpose of designating a customs broker to perform customs clearance and entry; and (iii) to redirect an order to your customs broker or other address upon request by any person whom Passport’s nominated agents and contractors believe in its reasonable opinion to be authorized.
4. Currency. You may select your preferred payment method and currency from a list of options available at the time of checkout. Please note that the relative value of currencies may vary, and as a result, the actual purchase price for items in your order may vary based on the currency selected.
5. Billing. If you use a payment card or other electronic form of payment as your payment type, the charges to your account for your order will be subject to the Merchant’s terms and conditions.
6. Shipping. Items in your order may be shipped via a single shipment or via multiple shipments. If items in your Qualifying Customer Order are shipped via multiple shipments, or if your order is only partially filled and shipped, you will only be charged for those items that are actually shipped to you.
7. Chargebacks, Fraud Prevention, and Void Transactions. For your protection, Passport may use various fraud prevention protocols and policies, and industry-standard verification systems, to reduce fraud and minimize chargeback risks. You must comply with such protocols and policies, including card authentication and “ship to” and “bill to” address verification. Once an order is placed, you may not change any authenticated payment information or any verified “ship to”/“bill to” address. If there is a systemic error that results in the processing or acceptance of a transaction for which authorization has been declined, that transaction will be void.
8. Customer Service and Returns. Questions or complaints about your order should be directed to the Merchant in the first instance. Passport may work with the Merchant as necessary to resolve your issue. The Merchant is authorised to allow for returns or refunds on orders in accordance with the Merchant’s policy, including to reimburse you for the original sales prices of Products returned to the Merchant’s nominated address. Passport may however refuse any return requested if a restriction applies to the item for which the return is requested. You accept that your sole remedies are against the Merchant.

Last Updated as of July 27, 2022.
We firmly believe that our products and the internet as a whole should be available and accessible to anyone. We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the broadest possible audience, regardless of ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with these guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to blind people, people with motor impairments, people with visual impairments, people with cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard, although we are constantly working to improve this.
We take many measures to ensure accessibility at our company such as: including accessibility through our internal policies, integrating accessibility into our procurement practices, assigning clear accessibility goals and responsibilities, and employing formal accessibility quality assurance methods.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs. Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML and adapts its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
We used both a self-evaluation, as well as an external evaluation approach to assess the accessibility needs on our website. These approaches included: multiple compliance assessment programs, advice from legal counsel, our developer’s recommendations, as well as customer feedback. We will continue to build upon our approaches for assessing our website and strive to make our website accessible to all people.
Noted accessibility limitations
Accessibility limitation 2: We currently use Third-Party Apps that integrate with Shopify that are not entirely ADA compliant. These third-party apps cannot be adjusted as they are auto-injected scripts or code directly from the manufacturing company. We are working with our developers and the third-party app companies to solve this problem, but cannot provide an estimated completion date can be given at this time. Please reach out to email@example.com for any assistance.
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers can read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most essential screen-reader requirements:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, and modal dialogues (popups), and others.
Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images. It provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts embedded within the image using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with popular screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack.
Additionally, keyboard users will find content-skip menus available at any time by clicking Alt+2, or as the first element of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, not allowing the focus to drift outside.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Disability profiles supported on our website
Epilepsy Safe Profile: this profile enables people with epilepsy to safely use the website by eliminating the risk of seizures resulting from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
Vision Impaired Profile: this profile adjusts the website so that it is accessible to the majority of visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
Cognitive Disability Profile: this profile provides various assistive features to help users with cognitive disabilities such as Autism, Dyslexia, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements more easily.
ADHD Friendly Profile: this profile significantly reduces distractions and noise to help people with ADHD, and Neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read, and focus on the essential elements more easily.
Blind Users Profile (Screen-readers): this profile adjusts the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is installed on the blind user’s computer, and this site is compatible with it.
Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Additional UI, design, and readability adjustments
Font adjustments: users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
Color adjustments: users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds with over seven different coloring options.
Animations: epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions.
Content highlighting: users can choose to emphasize essential elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
Audio muting: users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
Cognitive disorders: we utilize a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher the meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
Additional functions: we allow users to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.
Assistive technology and browser compatibility
We aim to support as many browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS, and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and MAC users.
Feedback and formal complaints
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating, improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility following technological advancements. If you wish to contact us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to file a formal complaint, please follow the following procedure. Please send an email to email@example.com with the subject line "ADA Complaint” or contact us using our Contact Form (https://sessiongoods.com/pages/help#contact) and submit a contact request with the Inquiry Type: "ADA Complaint."
In the event a formal complaint is filed, we will resolve the issue or send a formal response within 5-7 business days. We aim to give all people equal ability to enjoy our products and will work diligently and in good faith to resolve any issues.
