How does a subscription order work?
A subscription order ensures a monthly delivery of fresh beans in 1kg packs at a discounted price and free shipping. Our house blends are also available in 2 or 3 week and bi-monthly frequencies.
A minimum of 3 subscription delivery periods applies. There is no obligation on subscriptions beyond an initial 3 delivery commitment.
You are provided a customer portal link to self manage your subscription, update the next delivery date, change the blend or cancel after the minimum commitment period).
When you place a subscription, you will receive a new subscription notification email with a link to your subscription/customer portal.
Your subscription will automatically renew on the scheduled billing date which you can view/amend in the customer portal. You will receive an email notification that your subscription is due to renew 3 days prior to the billing renewal date.
The default renewal date is the same day of the month for monthly recurrence, or the same day of the week for weekly recurring. Customers can amend the next fulfilment date via the customer portal or you can email us email@example.com to update it for you.

How often will I receive by subscription order?
When you place your subscription order, you choose a delivery frequency (monthly, every 2 or 3 weeks or bi-monthly).
Subscriptions are automatically renewed. The scheduled dates are shown in your customer portal and can be changed if you are running short on coffee. You can select to 'order now' or simply shift the scheduled date.
How does the automatic renewal frequency work?
All subscriptions are renewed automatically unless they are paused or cancelled.
You can cancel or pause your order at any time after the initial commitment period of 3 deliveries.
The subscription date will be based on the date of your initial order. For example, a monthly recurring subscription first ordered on the 18th of the Month will automatically generate on the 18th of each month. If your subscription is fortnightly, it will be on the same day of the week each fortnight.
Can I change the blend from one order to the next?
Yes. Just log into your account and select the manage subscription option. Expand the Products in your subscription and select a different blend from the options available. Remove the existing blend if you are swapping out not adding to your order. Don't forget to save the changes. The change will apply to your future subscriptions or until you swap it again.
Can I create a gift subscription?
We recommend you contact us for a gift card to the equivalent value of the subscription option you are looking for and that can be issued to the recipient. The reason for this is it will allow the recipient to self-manage their subscription.
Can I update my subscription online?
You can access your subscription via the link provided with your initial subscription order. For simplicity, we recommend you register an account: Create Account – Motobean Roasters This will provide visibility of your subscription(s) and your order history. Customers with recurring subscriptions (pay per delivery) can change the scheduled dates for future deliveries. For example

How should I store my beans?
