What types of payment do you accept?

We accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and American Express), cryptocurrencies, blank money orders, and cash.

We DO NOT accept payment by:

  • Discover credit card;
  • Personal Checks; or
  • International Money Orders

Please note: When paying with cash, please make sure to send the exact amount due, using only notes/paper money (i.e. no coins), and always send by PRIORITY MAIL so you can prove your funds were delivered (no signatures please). We cannot be held liable for payments lost in transit.

Once you have completed your order you will receive a confirmation email along with your donation number. Once we have fulfilled your order within 24-48 hours, you will receive a shipping confirmation email along with your tracking number.

How should I germinate my seeds?

If you are having issues germinating your seeds we suggest lightly scuffing the shell with 120 grit sandpaper before placing them in a shot glass filled with bottled water and a drop of hydrogen peroxide for 24-48 hours. If no tap roots are showing, place your seeds gently in a damp paper towel, storing them in a dark place (like a closet) for another 24-48 hours or until you see a tap root. Once you see a taproot, carefully transplant into the medium of your choice. 

If you are just starting out, here is a great website to answer all your questions:


What is the cost of shipping and handling?

We ship all orders discreetly via USPS Priority Mail with a tracking number for a flat $9.00 fee. Orders over $100 ship USPS Priority Mail for free (just select free shipping upon checkout).

International Orders?

Unfortunately, we have had some bad experiences shipping internationally recently and have decided it is best not to take the risk at this time.

​What do packages look like when they are mailed?

DCSE ​understands that customers rely on complete discretion, especially when it comes to what packages look like when they are mailed. All products are sent in nondescript crush-proof boxes to protect the items within. DCSE values the privacy of customers highly, and endeavors to protect this at every stage of your order. Shopping, payment processing, and client aftercare all have this privacy factor as our top priority.

Can I pick up my order?

Unfortunately, we do not have a brick-and-mortar shop at this time and no longer offer a pick-up option. All donations are shipped discreetly via USPS Priority Mail in crush-proof boxes.

Hours of Operation: Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm Eastern.

How can I check that you have received my order?

You will receive a confirmation email including your donation number confirming that your order has been placed and is awaiting payment. If you have placed an order and have not yet received a confirmation number, please check your spam folder. If not there, you may not have fully completed the check-out process.

Once your donation has been received, you will be sent a processing confirmation email and lastly a shipping confirmation email along with your tracking number.

How do I change my address?

You can change your shipping address by replying to your confirmation email or by using our contact form.

Please be aware that you cannot change the address for a shipment once it has been shipped!

How do I cancel an order?

You can cancel your donation by replying to your confirmation email.

Please note, if we have received your donation, your order can only be canceled only if your order hasn’t been shipped.

​Can I have my order shipped to a P.O. Box address?



Due to the nature of the business, we can not offer refunds or returns but do offer replacements if for any reason you are not satisfied. As all seeds look alike we can not ensure that the seeds were not tampered with or stored improperly.

We apologize for this and offer this satisfaction guarantee: Your gift will ship in perfect condition as they came from the breeder, no premature or damaged seeds will ever be shipped to you and if for any reason you’re not satisfied, kindly email us and we’ll make it right!

​How long does it normally take for an order to arrive?

DCSE strives to get all gifts out within 24-hours of receipt of your payment (except for Sundays).

Credit card payments are by far the quickest. If you have paid by credit card you can expect your order to be shipped the next working day.

Money Orders and cash payments can take 3-7 days to arrive. It is imperative you send your cash/blank money orders by CERTIFIED or PRIORITY MAIL. This helps ensure that your cash payment reaches its destination. Due to the questionable security of sending cash by mail, we advise you to consider our other payment options.

All items are sent via USPS Priority Mail and will arrive within 3-5 business days depending on your location. We do not require a signature unless specifically requested.

Currently, we are unable to provide international shipping.
