Recurring Order Program

We are pleased to offer the convenience of recurring order placement. It saves you both time and money and will ensure that you never run out of your supplements.

DrFuhrman.com provides you with the opportunity to purchase our supplements on a recurring basis. The supplement(s) will be sent to you on a set schedule of 60 days for individual supplements or 120 days for supplement bundles. If you have an active DrFuhrman.com Membership Account of GoldPLUS or higher, you will receive a discount on your recurring order.

You must have a valid email address, and a credit card/and or debit card to participate in DrFuhrman.com’s recurring order program.

By placing a recurring order, whether via DrFuhrman.com or on the telephone with a Customer Service Representative, you are bound by these terms and conditions:

  • Recurring Order Placement: By placing a recurring order, you authorize DrFuhrman.com to automatically process and ship an order for your selected recurring order, on a scheduled date determined by the recurring order schedule (60 days or 120 days).
  • Recurring Order Pricing: Your recurring order’s total may vary due to changes in pricing or if the product amount increases. This is rare and Customer Service will notify you of any changes in the product you have on recurring order.
  • Recurring Order Shipping: DrFuhrman.com currently charges shipping on all orders less than $50.00. If your recurring order is less than $50.00, shipping will apply on the first shipment only. Subsequent shipments will incur no shipping charge unless you are an international customer, then international shipping fees will apply.
  • Recurring Order Payment:
    • By placing a recurring order, you authorize DrFuhrman.com to charge the credit card you provided for subsequent recurring orders until you cancel your recurring order. Unless you request a change, the credit card you used to set up the initial recurring order will be charged for subsequent orders. Subsequent orders will be charged the day the order is placed and forwarded to the warehouse for processing.
    • If your credit card is declined at the time of recurring order placement, your order will not be shipped; you will be notified that your recurring payment was declined and you will need to update your credit card information. Our ecommerce system makes three attempts (three days apart for a total time span of 9 days) to charge the credit card you have on file. If an attempt fails, a notice will be sent to you. This notice includes a link to update your credit card information. If you update the card information after the third attempt to process your recurring order occurs, the order will not be sent and must contact Customer Service at 1-800-474-WELL (9355) and we will process your order. Once your payment information is corrected, your recurring order will be processed. Credit Card and Debit Card payments are the only valid payment types accepted for recurring order payment. Store Credit, Gift Certificates, Checks, PayPal, and Bill Me Later will not be accepted.
    • If your shipping or billing address needs to be updated for a recurring order, you MUST contact Customer Service at 1-800-474-WELL (9355) so that we can update your recurring order records. (NOTE: Changing your address in the My Account section of DrFuhrman.com WILL NOT update any recurring orders you may have.)
