The 'My Next Order' tab shows the details for your next scheduled order. An order may contain more than one individual tea scheduled for Auto Ship if the teas have the same order date, shipping address, billing address, and payment information.

The 'My Subscriptions' tab displays individual Auto Ship teas and all associated details for that individual Auto Ship including next order date, delivery frequency, quantity, shipping address, billing address, and payment information. Individual Sip by Sip Auto Ship teas can all have different account information or you can make the account information the same for all Sip by Sip Auto Ship teas you receive.

 

6) What is the difference between an Order and a Subscription?

An Order is a scheduled shipment of tea or teas. If the shipment date, shipping address, payment info, and billing address are all the same, multiple subscriptions are sent in the same order.

A Subscription contains only one flavor of tea in one size. There could be multiple quantities of the same product in one subscription. Each flavor and each size will have different Subscriptions associated with each.
