PAYMENTS, SHIPPING, EXCHANGES
If you need help with a billing related question or account cancellation options, contact us online here or by phone at 1-844-651-2270 ext. 0.
For membership cancelations, please note that once your account is past its trial phase you will be charged any remaining months on your annual contract if you choose to cancel within your 12-months membership period. You will continue to have access to your “Gift Hub” and stations for the remaining months. You will not be automatically charged for a renewal unless you explicitly confirm your desire to renew.
If you activated the personal gift shopper services, you should note that you can cancel up to 30 days before the specified occasion. You will be refunded the fee charged ONLY if you cancel before 30 days of the specific event/occasion.
No. However, we neatly place the gift receipt in an envelope in the gift box going to the recipient so they may choose to return or exchange it at their convenience. This is unusual but we have made provisions to ensure it is simple if anyone was to avail themselves of it.
Shipping is free (for all packages less than one pound) within the domestic United States ONLY. We ship via US Postal Service and UPS.
Of course. We’ll send you an email with a tracking number once your order has shipped.
We’ll ship anywhere; we currently ship for free (items less than 1lb) in the United States only. Charges will apply if shipping outside the United States.
At Occasion Station, we care deeply about social impact and remain committed to improving the lives of people in the communities we touch – especially kids and teens. We’re currently looking to develop and grow our Los Angeles based team to grow our impact strategy—to give more and give meaningfully. Currently, we are working to donate several occasion station “gift” boxes to a select group of orphanages, shelters and children’s hospital wing with terminally ill patients for the coming Christmas season. We plan to put smiling faces on the kids we touch through this outreach and hope you can participate too.
If you would like to nominate other charitable avenues or a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization that you would like us to consider or to receive in-kind donations to support people in need, please fill out this contact form and we will be in touch with you.
“The mental exhaustion of running your own business doesn’t just take its toll in the office — if you’re not careful, it can also affect your personal life as well. Occasion Station ensures that you’ll never forget the things that matter most."
“When you’re pressed for time, you cannot do all of the things you want to—like buying gifts for loved ones. Although personalized gifts are ideal, it’s impossible for busy entrepreneurs to create their own gifts 100 percent of the time. Let Occasion Station shop and ship for you"
"Instead of taking time away from your business to think about the perfect gift, including where you’ll get it and how it'll be delivered, you can outsource this task and stay worry-free. Upload important dates into their platform, and their professional shoppers send presents to the important clients and employees."
"There is one service, however, that was, until recently, absent from the market: gift giving. Given everything we have at our fingertips, it seems a bit odd that nobody has thought to take care of one of the most commonly forgotten tasks. Think about it—you may be good at remembering your parents’ birthdays, and you know what day Christmas is, but outside of that, how on top of your gift-giving schedule are you?"
"Designed with busy moms in mind, Occasion station allows you to input the names of anybody you’ll be needing to buy a gift for, the dates that they’ll need said gift, and their interests and hobbies. From there, either you’ll get a reminder when the time comes to buy a gift, or if you’d rather, Occasion Station’s team takes over. They’ll take care of the whole process allowing you to continue to be on the ball without having to interrupt your schedule."
"Lest we forget, life goes on outside of work. While your business requires daily scheduling, you can’t forget about the rest of your life, either. Enter Occasion Station. It is an online, well, station, where users can input information on family and friends, schedule their birthdays, holidays, or other important events, and let the service take care of the actual gift giving."
"All entrepreneurs are busy, but only some are productive. Many hopeful business owners block themselves from success because they work inefficiently. On the other hand, some up-and-coming entrepreneurs rise to the top because they understand how to make the most of their busy schedules."
