Please remember to adhere to some of our basic VIP membership rules:
Sometimes, when you have been logged into your VIP account for a while, our website doesn’t recognize your session anymore. First, try logging out and back into your account. This should help clear your old session. When you get to the homepage, you should see the VIP logo in the navigation bar and the VIP discount reflected in all products.
If you’ve been a VIP customer for more than a year and not seeing your discount, your account may have expired. If you still qualify for the VIP program, you can submit another VIP application.
Sometimes our website platform Shopify recognizes and inserts another email that you've used on other Shopify websites that is not set up as a VIP account. This could also happen if you use Shop Pay at checkout. This is not something that we can control, unfortunately.
To ensure that your VIP discount applies at checkout, make sure that your VIP email is set in the "contact" section at checkout. After setting that, you will have to click the "continue to shipping" button. Your VIP discount will be applied now if your VIP account is active.
Most customer inquiries can be addressed through our Customer Support page.
If your VIP-specific issue is not directly addressed in one of the FAQs on this page, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
You can look up the status of your order by logging into your account.
Keep in mind that VIP orders take 3-5 business days to process, and longer during sale periods.
At this time, the OR Pro collection is only available in the US.
If your position requires specific certifications, you will be prompted to upload those with your application. We will accept a paystub or similar proof of work as a substitute. Please blackout any sensitive information, like salary or social security number before the documentation is uploaded. Please do not include IDs with no expiration date.
