What is Rip City Delivery?
A: Rip City Delivery provides on-demand cannabis delivery to adults 21 and older in SW Portland. Place your order in our online store, and a Rip City Delivery driver will deliver to your door in 60 minutes or less. Most orders will be filled in less than 45 minutes. One minute is one minute too long, we know. Faster delivery times will be a leading focus, until one of our delivery drones is dropping pot through your rooftop drone-door.
Where do you deliver?
A: Any house or apartment in SW Portland. Unfortunately, we are prohibited from delivering to dormitories, hotels, motels, or bed and breakfasts. The 97225 zip code technically lies outside of Portland and in unincorporated Washington County. Therefore, 97225 falls outside of our legal delivery area.
Why can’t I use my debit card?
A: Because cannabis is still federally illegal there are no reputable and secure debit/credit processing services available.
Rip City Delivery accepts cash, personal checks and CanPay. CanPay connects to a user's debit account to facilitate secure cashless transactions through the ACH network, with no transaction fee. Please visit www.canpaydebit.com to watch a straightforward tutorial video on how their service works. You can watch a recent KGW news story on this highly convenient payment system here -- http://www.kgw.com/news/you-can-now-buy-weed-in-oregon-without-cash-legitimately/454359614.
What if I don’t like the products I receive?
A: Rip City Delivery delivers with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, or your money back. If you don’t like the products you receive, our driver will gladly refund your money and wish you a nice day. We know you will be satisfied. That is why we stand behind our products and service so strongly. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority!
Why can’t you deliver to me?
A: Initially, it is our goal to serve a small area very well, with prompt and professional service. We will currently deliver anywhere in SW Portland.
Will I be able to track my driver like Uber and Lyft?
A: For the safety of our drivers and customers, we will not be enabling this feature. Customers will receive an emailed electronic receipt, and two text message updates. One message to let you know your order was received, and another when the driver is en route.
Why do you need so much of my information? What are you going to do with it?
A: Any personal information collected is used to satisfy Oregon Liquor Control Commission and City of Portland regulations. All information will be disposed of securely and responsibly as soon as is legally possible. We respect your privacy, and our responsibility to ensure the security of your information.
Do I need to receive my order in person?
A: Yes. Our drivers must verify, with proper identification, that the person receiving the order is the person who placed the order online. Our drivers must also verify this person is over 21 years old. Acceptable forms of ID include a Driver’s License, a state ID card, a military ID, or a Passport.
How will my order be delivered?
A: Discreetly and professionally by a friendly driver wearing a white Rip City Delivery t-shirt. Rip City Delivery vehicles are unmarked. Your nosy neighbors don’t have to know that you know how to relax properly.
Why do you want my phone number?
A: You'll receive two notifications, one when the order is processed, and another when the delivery driver is en route.
Why do you need my email address?
A: Rip City Delivery will provide an electronic receipt for your order.
Why do you need my birthday?
A: State regulations require we collect the birth date of the individual ordering prior to delivery.
