Do I need to register on the site before placing an order?
No, anyone can access and browse our site without limitations, and place an order (c.d. ‘Guest Order’). The data requested in this case will be those necessary for processing the order. It will be possible, for an unregistered customer, to register after the creation of an order.
In the event that a customer has already registered before and subsequently returns to the site without accessing his own reserved area (ie without making the c.d. ‘login’), he can freely place the order as a Guest. In this case, if during the payment process as a Guest, he enters the registration email address, the site will indicate the possibility of logging in; then the user will always be free to continue as 'Guest' or log in by entering the password previously chosen during registration.
We remind you that registration allows the Customer to access the Vitamin Points program and dedicated promotions. Registration is also required to use the 'referal' coupon and the coupon sent by the friend through the 'Invite a Friend' function.

I have finalized an order but I have forgotten a product or would like to change a taste, can I do it?
Unfortunately it is NOT possible to change a forwarded order. The computer system does not allow changes to be made and in these cases it is necessary to request the cancellation of the order, contacting the customer service, and repeat the order with the desired products.
Are further discounts applied on orders of a certain size?
On some brands and on products that are not already placed on a special offer, additional discounts are applied in proportion to the purchase volume. Additional discounts, where applicable, will appear during the order definition phase.
What is the "Wishlist"?
The "Wishlist" or wish list allows you to create a customized catalog where you can enter all the products you are interested in and want to keep in mind for future orders. This feature is only offered to registered users.
To add a product to the "Wishlist", enter the article tab that interests you and click on the link on the little heart icon that you find to the right of the product image. To see the products entered in the "Wishlist" click on the little heart icon on the top right of each page. Obviously you can remove products that you no longer care about from Wishlist, or you can move them to the cart if you decide to buy them.
Wishlist and Shopping Cart are two separate and completely different things, be careful not to confuse them.
When will the ordered goods be sent to me?
Generally orders placed before 12.30 am are prepared the same day. When you receive our email confirming shipment, your package will already have left the warehouse. Attention: We cannot guarantee same-day shipping, because the order processing could be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances or force majeure.
In the event that the order contains products that are not available at the moment we will contact you by email or by phone. You can choose whether to wait until those products are available again, to replace them with similar ones, or to cancel the order and receive a refund of the entire amount paid. The order fulfillment email, not to be confused with the automatic confirmation and summary email sent by the system once the order has been finalized, is usually sent late in the evening.
Couriers collect parcels ready for delivery at our warehouses in the evening and travel to destinations overnight. Indicatively, except for unforeseen events, deliveries include 24-hour timings for North and Central Italy and 48 hours for South and Islands.
Orders placed over the weekend (from Friday evening to Sunday) will be taken in charge and shipped the first working day, ie the following Monday, and the tracking code will appear on our website only on Monday evening.
N.B. Couriers do not deliver on Saturdays and Sundays.
N.B.2 It is necessary that the customer undertakes to monitor the outcome of the shipment with the tracking code.
It may be advisable to clarify that "processing" of the order means preparing the package and delivering it to the courier. An order placed on Friday afternoon and directed to Palermo, for example, will be processed on the first day (Monday), processed on Monday evening and delivered to the customer probably on the following Wednesday.
What are the couriers used for shipping? Is there a tracking number?
We use GLS and Bartolini for our shipments. When the package is collected by the courier at our warehouses, we send you an email to the address indicated in the order data. Through the tracking number in your Reserved Area on the order page you can follow the package route step by step.
I received the package but something is missing, what can I do?
If in checking the goods received you notice that something is missing compared to what you have ordered and you have not received communications from us on goods that are not available at the moment, contact us immediately by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the following numbers 800.592.050 ( only from landlines) or 051.6166680.

If you intend to return the goods, you must notify us within 48 hours of receiving them. The packages must be intact, without any sign of alteration. The cost of the return shipment is your responsibility. Clothing must not be stained or worn (except for a short cut).

Pay attention to the address then, look at it several times before completing the order!
ATTENTION: Vitamin Center Srl accepts the return of open packages only if the product is defective at the origin.
All products must be returned in their original packaging and repacked for transport, otherwise the courier is not authorized to collect them.
Vitamin Center Srl does not assume responsibility for what is declared by the producers in the information provided on their products.
Vitamin Center Srl does not offer any implicit or explicit guarantee on the results obtainable from the use of the products on sale.
I received the package but it is damaged, what can I do?
In this case, please follow the following procedure carefully: when the courier asks you to sign the delivery note, affix "damaged goods" next to your signature, or, if you only suspect that the contents of the package may not be whole, write "subject to control". Once the package has been opened, if the contents are not complete, contact us immediately by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the following numbers 800.592.050 (only from landlines) or 051.6166680.

What are the security guarantees in providing my credit card information?
We recognize the importance of protecting your privacy and the security of your data! Our site does not receive or record information related to your credit card because the payment is automatically directed to the operators of the banking system with encrypted and secure systems. The confidential data of the credit card (card number, expiration date holder, security code) are exclusively transmitted to the bank manager of the payments in an encrypted way, through the https protocol.
Therefore, Vitamin Center never has access and never stores the complete data of your credit card, even if you choose to save your credit card when paying. From your payment page for subsequent orders, you will only be able to see some of the information on the card, and for the sole purpose of making it recognizable, by displaying the expiry date and the last 4 digits.
After saving the credit card, it will be re-proposed at the time of payment to speed up your future purchases, because the complete card data is already stored on the secure site of the payment manager.
I have chosen to pay by bank transfer, where is the data for the payment?
The data to make the bank transfer are summarized in the final phase of the order, in the "Payment methods" table and are also automatically sent via email immediately after the conclusion of the order. In the notes of the transfer it is mandatory to indicate the order number. If you do not receive the confirmation email with the bank details within 5 minutes of completing the order, you must contact the assistance by writing an email to email@example.com or by calling 800.592.050 (only from landlines) or 051.6166680. Before contacting support, we advise you to check if the message has been blocked by your spam filter (check your spam or junk mail folder).
Via home banking the procedure is quick, but be careful: shipping will take place only when we have received the bank credit.
Which products do they expire?
Product deadlines are listed on the site. We have worked hard to offer you this (we think very welcome) opportunity, which allows you to immediately see the expiry date of the product on the pages describing the selected item. Products with a short maturity (3 months) are included in a list called "Last Minute" and are subject to a further discount.
N.B. In the case of items that have both long-term lots and short-term lots, be careful to buy exactly what you want. Moreover, when you receive the goods, remember that products from the USA report the date expressed in the month-day-year format.
I am intolerant or allergic to soy, eggs, nuts, peanuts, milk, gluten, etc. How can I be sure I don't make the wrong purchases?
Unfortunately it is not possible to guarantee that a product is free of contamination from potential allergens. Those affected by intolerances and / or diseases of any kind purchase the products at their own responsibility. The labels and descriptions on the site may contain errors or involuntary omissions, so always read the label and warnings on the package carefully before consuming the product purchased. An important note concerns the use of GMOs in US products: US legislation is indeed different from ours and in America there are very few companies that worry if for example soy used as an emulsifier is a GMO or not. If you are in absolute opposition to the presence of GMOs, we advise you to buy exclusively European products, with a clear GMO declaration.
What are discount codes, coupons or points? Where do I find them?
Discount codes or coupons are special codes that give the right to discounts of a certain amount on the purchase. These codes are occasionally issued in trade magazines for promotional purposes or during other initiatives advertised on the site and on our social channels. It should be noted that these discount codes are only an additional opportunity for savings, because all the products are already super-discounted and there are many other forms of discounts such as the products given as gifts during specific commercial initiatives. It should be noted that these discount codes are only an additional saving opportunity, because all the products are already super-discounted and there are many other forms of discounts and savings such as the VitaminPoints, a points accumulation system based on the amount spent (read the conditions).
I spent more than XX euros but I didn't receive any gadgets, why?
It should not be forgotten that Vitamin Center processes thousands of orders a day and gadgets are always available in limited numbers. The gadgets are then assigned based on availability and order of arrival and it may happen that they are terminated. The insertion of the gadget is not insured and should not be taken for granted.
Can product prices change without notice? Yesterday I saw a price and today it has changed.
Absolutely yes. Vitamin Center Srl reserves the right to vary the prices of the products also daily based on commercial evaluations, offers and deadlines. It is not possible to estimate these variations, which are often caused by sudden changes in purchase prices from suppliers or currency fluctuations.
