Funguys Gourmet Terms of Service

Out of Stock Policy:

Periodically, an item you order may be out of stock. If we find out that an item is out of stock at the time we are filling the order, we will call or email you for permission to substitute a similar variety. You will also have the opportunity to put your entire order on hold until we have received more stock. We will only consider doing “part-shipments” if a second shipping fee is paid.

In the event of further stock unavailability due to crop failure or other unavoidable cause, we will advise so that you may either re-order, cancel part of, or cancel your entire order and have any advance payment refunded.

Contacting Us:

We are a home based business and very often we find ourselves getting our hands dirty in our mushroom grow facility or laboratory at odd times during the day. We therefore prefer to communicate via email. If you need to reach us, please email us using the contact form or the email link on our Contact page.

Growing Instructions:

Growing or harvesting instructions are not included for any spawn or culture products.

Warranty / Guarantee:

Following custom in the trade, we give no warranty, express or implied, as to the viability or description of the mushroom culture, nor can we be responsible for the resulting mushroom crop or its possible misuse. Should you have any complaints please let us know.


We ship all orders as requested by the customer upon completion of order. Most orders are successfully sent via PostNet or The Courier Guy. We are not responsible for lost or damaged shipments whatsoever. We are not responsible for lost orders shipped to an incorrect address. If you provided us with an incorrect address, you assume all risk. We will however assist with tracking an order.

Shipping and Handling Fees:

The shipping and handling fee is calculated automatically upon completing your order, or in some cases requires a separate quote. Shipping fees are based upon the shipping method. The shipping and handling fee does not just include postage, but includes the cost for packaging, labels, cost to fill the order etc. By completing the order, you accept the shipping and handling fees.

Processing and Delivery Time:

Our busiest time of the year is between September and May. Except for our busiest period, orders are generally shipped within 21 business days of receiving the payment of an order. During our busiest period however, it may take up to 28 business days to ship, from the day you placed your order. The delivery time is based on the time it takes to process your order in the order it was received. Note: We do not have a delivery service on weekends and all delivery times stated are dependent on available stock.

Lead Time:

All our Spawn and Culture products have a lead time for production. Lead time will vary depending the type of culture we are processing. PDA dishes generally ship within 10 days. Seed spawn generally ship in 3 – 4 weeks. Plug spawn generally ship in 5 – 6 weeks. Some cultures are faster than others and will influence the lead time.

Valid Email Address:

You must provide a valid email address when placing an order. We send a confirmation of the order, with our bank details via email. We also send progress emails to inform you of the progress of your order, as well as a shipping confirmation email with your tracking number once the order has been shipped. If a valid email address is not provided, you will not be able to receive these confirmations.

Valid Shipping Address:

You must provide an accurate shipping address when placing your order. We send a confirmation of your order via email. Please review the address on the email confirmation for accuracy. If a valid shipping address is not provided, and the order is shipped, the customer bears full responsibility for a lost shipment.

Return Policy:

All sales are final and we do not accept returns for any reason.

Our Privacy Policy:

We will not share any personal information that you provide to us. We do not make your information available to any outside source. Funguys reserves the right to communicate by way of email any news, special offers, events, and competitions to any visitor that offers his or her email address to us.
