Our straightforward shipping is reasonable. And its FAST!

We ship quickly! Most orders leave here within a few hours of being placed to within 24 hours of being placed on business days. Depending on location, transit time is usually 3-5 business days, but the package leaves here quickly so it's as fast as it can be. All shipping methods provide tracking.

Standard Shipping Information:

We usually ship by UPS Ground. FedEx Ground or USPS Priority Mail in our discretion. Very light orders may be sent by USPS First Class Mail/USPS Ground Advantage. Heavier orders are usually shipped by UPS Ground, so please provide your street address if you use a PO Box for your USPS regular mail. If you have a PO box it is most helpful if you put your PO Box address in the Address 1 line of the Shipping Address and your street address in the Address line 2. This way we will not have to reach out to you for either address, which slows down fulfillment of your order. We do ship very quickly, but if you are west of the Mississippi and ordering a heavy order (diapers are heavy, covers are light), be aware that UPS Ground can take five or more business days in transit. We usually consider an order heavy if it is 5 pounds or more, but that varies.

HI, AK and non-contiguous 48-states Most orders weighing 16 ounces or greater are shipped via USPS Priority Mail.  The shipping charge is $10.95 up to 7 pounds.  Over 7 pounds, the shipping charge is $1.00 per pound and is automatically calculated on the order checkout page.

Packages returned to us undeliverable or refused:

Undeliverable packages will be subject to a reduction of the actual postage cost paid. and a 20% restocking fee. That is, you get your money back for the items less the restocking fee and you don't get the postage that was spent back. We don't reship. You have to place a new order online. Your refund notice will be emailed to you, so you'll find out about an undeliverable package when you receive the refund email. Please double check your addresses to avoid this expensive problem. Do NOT address packages "new baby so-and-so". They won't make it. Please use a parent's name, not the baby's name, to ensure proper delivery.

Refused packages are subject to a 20% restocking fee plus a reduction of the actual shipping costs incurred. Note that UPS charges a return service fee which is not refundable. Please avoid Return To Sender packages.

Cancellations:  Due to our rapid order fulfillment system, we are usually not able to change or cancel orders. If you request a cancellation we may, in our discretion, charge a $3.00 cancellation fee.  That is, the refund may be reduced by a $3.00 for the cancellation fee. This fee is to cover the credit card fees or PayPal fees and also the personnel time required for various manual aspects of the cancellation process. These are very real costs and this is a reasonable fee.     Often, because we do ship orders so rapidly, orders cannot be cancelled.  Please review your order carefully before placing it.  Sometimes a simple size or kind change is possible if the order has not shipped, but please take care to check your cart carefully before placing your order. Call us right away at 800-330-9905 for such minor modifications to your order or use the Contact Us link on the site. Thank you for your help.

Address change requests: If we make an addressing mistake we will make it right at no cost to you. If the customer makes an addressing mistake and we ship it correctly to the address provided and, if the order has shipped by UPS and is correctable in the UPS system after it has shipped (USPS is not correctable) then the actual cost incurred to do the UPS Delivery Intercept, which at the time of this writing is $12.50, is a fee the customer must pay, usually as a rebill to the credit card used for the original order or a PayPal money request will be sent. Please make sure the shipping address is correct to avoid this expense and delay.

Our address is Green Mountain Diapers 74 Cotton Mill Hill Unit A220, Brattleboro, VT 05301

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover/Novus and American Express cards (We only ship to USA addresses, plus APO/FPO addresses). 

We also accept PayPal and Apple Pay.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept any orders in our discretion.

We do not accept checks or money orders.

About Declines and address matching:

It is important for your billing address and zip code to match what appears on your credit card billing statement. If your credit card provider does not provide AVS matching, your order will decline and you will not be able to order using that card. Use a different card. If the name and address do not match, your transaction will decline.

But please note - this is not us, but the way credit card banks handle declines - the bank checks the card for available funds and freezes the funds for several days, even though no money moved if the transaction declines when the address doesn't match. This is true for all businesses who require matching billing addresses for credit card approvals. Please type your billing address and zip code correctly to avoid unnecessary declines, which will make that credit unavailable to you for several days or a week. The "grab" or "temporary authorization" "or "pending charge" the bank puts on your card for this attempted transaction automatically drops off by itself. There is no need to do anything. It will disappear soon. No money moved.

Sometimes banks provide incorrect information to the Address Verification System (AVS). If you are getting an AVS decline and the address you typed matches the address on your billing statement, call your bank to get the problem fixed, and use a different card until the problem is resolved.

If you get an AVS decline and the address is correct, do NOT keep trying it again. Every attempt will cause your bank to hold that credit for a week, and that can cause other problems. If you do that and end up with a credit problem, call the number on your card and ask for "the fax number to release temporary authorizations". Then send us an email with your bank's fax number and we can fax something to your bank certifying that we will not be capturing the declines and we'll ask them to release the temporary authorizations. The banks do not have to release it but they usually do. But please don't keep resubmitting a declining transaction. Use a different card. AVS is important to protect both you and me from fraud, so we choose to use this service.

GIFT CARDS and AVS Declines:

Your Visa or other gift card will work, but first you must call the telephone number on the back of the card and register the card to your name. This will put the address information in the AVS system, which is needed in order to get an AVS match. Without an AVS match, you cannot order from us. So please register the gift card before you check out.

Using multiple payment methods:

The trick to using more than one payment method is to first use your prepaid Visa (or other) gift card to purchase FOR YOURSELF a Green Mountain Diapers gift card. This will be emailed to you instantly. You can then use the GMD Gift Card to purchase your items and complete the purchase with your own credit card if necessary. Only one credit card may be used per order, however you can use as many Green Mountain Diapers gift cards as you have or need. This works great! Instructions are below. Please follow the steps below to accomplish this:

1. Create a gift card from our site for the exact amount of your first prepaid gift card card (or any lesser amount if you desire).  Simply make the Green Mountain Diapers gift card out to yourself with your own email address.

2. Go to the checkout page on our website with only the gift card in your cart.

3. Select Credit Card for payment method and enter your Visa or Amex Gift Card. (Prepaid cards must be registered to your zip code to approve, see above.)

4. Once you complete the checkout process you will receive an email with your Green Mountain Diapers gift card ID.

5. Then, when you’re ready to place your order, add all of your items to the cart and go to the regular checkout (don't use the Express Checkout of ApplePay or Paypal, use the Regular Checkout where you can still choose PayPal if you want to.)   

6. Enter your Green Mountain Diapers Gift Card ID (from Step 4) in the "Gift card or discount code" box and click the submit order button. 

7. Our system will then apply the gift card to your order and request payment again for the remaining balance. You can use multiple Green Mountain Diapers gift cards. It will not complete until full payment has been achieved so you will need to hit Submit more than once. That's ok.

8. Select either PayPal or Credit Card to pay the remaining balance (if any) to complete the purchase of your items. 

Feel free to Contact Us if needed (email is preferred however we are happy to answer phone calls M-F during regular business hours Eastern time.)

Rushed Shipping Information:

We usually can also ship by UPS Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air or 3 Day Select at additional cost. If you would like your order shipped by a rushed method, please indicate your preference in the "Special Instructions" section at the end of the order form, AND send us an email letting us know your delivery needs. We can give expedited shipping quotes only when we know the weight and destination of the package. Usually we can do the rushed shipping with your package leaving right away, but sometimes we can't. We are a small business. Typically they do go out right away, but we do not guarantee it because just in case something comes up it's possible to be short-handed. We do have a few employees but we are not a large business with depth of staff. Our pickup cutoff may be early since we are on the east coast. You will be charged the actual shipping charge only, but not the standard shipping charges. Expedited shipping has a minimum charge of $5.00. Because we are rural, we cannot ship by Express Mail through the US Post Office at all, but must use UPS overnight for all overnight packages.

Clothing is now tax-free in Vermont! VT residents add 6% sales tax for non-clothing items: such as wet bags, pail liners, and changing pads. 

We do not ship internationally, except for US military APO/FPO customers which will be shipped by USPS Priority Mail. We thank you for serving! Allow one extra day to process the order so we have time to fill out the customs form.

Complete washing instructions/suggestions are included in the 16 page How-To Booklet that is available with your order but you must add it to the cart to receive it.
