Please do not forget to manually add the shipping costs when you set the pledge amount.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is an Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign?
Indiegogo is a new way to fund creative business projects through "Crowdfunding". You can see it as a pre-sale. Essentially you pledge funds in support of our starting up of Maryo Artisan Products and we reward your generous support in the form of really cool perks, including our premium extra virgin olive oil. The money that will be left after we pay the producer, transportation and packaging materials, will be used to fund our webshop building.
What is a “perk”?
A perk is what we will give you in return for your support. They are listed in the grey boxes on the right side of our page. Check out all our perks to the right of your screen!
How do I place an order?
You press the pink button on the right of our page “Contribute Now”. In the next screen you can enter the amount you want to contribute. Then you can select which “perk” (product package) you want in return. Please, note that the amounts should be put in US Dollars. Do not forget - when mentioned in a perk- to add the relevant shipping costs.
Then you can pay with your credit card as in a normal web-shop.
Are shipping costs included?
As the Shipping costs are different per country, they are not included in the perk price. Please, add the shipping costs on top of the perk price when you pledge. You can find the shipping costs in the relevant section of our pitch page. Shipping costs per country are "flat" independent of the quantity of bottles.
What is the packaging the olive oil will be delivered in?
The olive oil will be delivered in 750ml dark green UV protected glass bottles. Store these bottles in a dark and cool place for better preserving your olive oil. After opening, it is better to consume the content within two months.
How long can I keep olive oil?
Olive oil is produced once a year and has a long life span (especially low acidity olive oil which is properly bottled like ours). Still, it is always better (from taste and nutrition perspective) to use olive oil from the most recent harvest. We would suggest that you order as much as you will consume within a year and not more. Next spring, if everything goes smoothly we will have freshly harvested olive oil again for you :).
How much it costs for larger quantities?
We have perks that range from a single bottle to 20 bottles. Ordering more bottles, you get a lower price per bottle. For Netherlands you get also free shipping when you order 4 bottles or more.
Does Maryo Olive Oil have any certification?
Our olive oil is analyzed by an authorized lab and the results are available. As transparency is one of our principles, we just uploaded a scan of the results in our photos section (http://d2oadd98wnjs7n.cloudfront.net/medias/726308/files/20130327035728-Analysis.pdf?1364381850). All the parameters that define the quality and nutritious value of olive oil are far better than the limits set by IOC (international olive council) and EU to define an olive oil as “Extra Virgin” quality. Maryo is an olive oil of a quality that until now was only sold in exclusive perfume-size bottles. Now you can have it on your table and cook with it every day.
Can I send my perk as a present?
Yes you can. The shipping address can be different than the billing address. So, why not make a tasty present to a loved one?
