Can I edit my message/image, even if I already placed my order?  

  • If the order hasn't been shipped out yet then you can email us at support@anonymouspotato.com with your order number and what you want us to put on the potato. 
  • Our support team typically takes a business to answer. 

    What happens if my order is returned?

    • e-mail us at support@anonymouspotato.com with your order number and tracking number.  Majority of the times returns are caused due to the patrons entering the zip code incorrectly or incorrectly entering the business name of the recipient's location.  If an order says it has been delivered there is nothing we can do to help find the order. 
    • We understand that sometimes it can be hard to remember the correct address of the person you are shipping a product to. This is why we have an address validator upon checkout.  Please verify it is correct before shipping.  

    Whose shipping address and email do I enter at checkout? 

    • We will also never show your email. That is why it is very important to enter YOUR email and the RECIPIENT'S shipping address at checkout. If you want the person to know that it was from you, simply write your name in the message. For example "Love, Jake R."

    I entered the wrong shipping address. Now what?

    • Don't worry as long as you can get us the information in a enough time before the order is fulfilled we can fix it. Email the order number along with the changes in the shipping information to support@anonymouspotato.com


    • We typically do not offer refunds unless it is our mistake. For instance, if you enter an incorrect shipping address and the order is shipped to that address we cannot issue a refund for this. We ask our customers to verify the shipping address on every purchase. We pay extra for an address validation tool. 

    Can my message be anonymous? 

    • Yes, it can! If you would like the message to be anonymous, simply do not give any clues that the potato was from you. Meaning, do not write your name on the message!
    • Please note that we do not send harassing, threatening, hateful messages. We read every message and will ask you to change it if we think it is not a friendly message. If someone emails us feeling harassed by a potato they received, we may reveal your identity to avoid conflict with ourselves and the receiver. 

    Will the person that I am sending the potato to, know that I was the one who sent it to them? 

    • This is completely up to you.  The orders can be anonymous or not. We will never show your shipping address as the return address. It will only show our shipping address and the recipient's on the package.

    Will the potato arrive in a package? 

    •  Yes, it will. If there is no package, then it will arrive damaged to your recipient! We do not send potatoes in the mail with just stamps on them. All packages are protective so your potato won't arrive mashed!
