Your missions organization may require state licensing and expiration information. For this information search or select your state on the map. If we currently do not supply items to your state please contact us for alternative options.
In an effort to best serve you, we have identified two common issues that delay the ordering process and may delay the receipt of your order.
First, at the top right on the Trip Application Page 1, the Organization Name is intended to be the ministry or non-profit organization that is responsible for providing the 501(c)(3) documentation or church letter, as well as receiving the billing invoice. Please be sure to have this organization’s EIN and contact information.
Second, when submitting the physician’s or dentist’s practitioner license, please understand that we will have to ship to the address that is on that license, consistent with the requirements of the regulatory agency under which we are licensed. If your state does not place an address on the license, please contact us at email@example.com to discuss other options.
FIRST TIME ORDERS
If you are considering ordering with Blessings, you will need:
1. To be part of a 501c3 organization.
• Please submit a copy of your organization’s 501c3 letter along with the order when placed.
2. Have a licensed doctor (MD’s or DO’s only) place the order OR be a licensed US medical clinic. Please note that the medicine will ship to the address on the license.
• for US Orders: if you are only ordering Vitamins & General Supplies
• for International Order: if you are ordering from the Dental Order Form (dental license is required) or only ordering Vitamins & General Supplies
3. Complete the Applications & Order Form
First-time users of our service must fax or email a copy of their prepayment check, or prepay by credit card, for the estimated amount of the order, along with:
• Completed Application
• Order Form
• 501c3 letter
• Medical License
Prepayment is only required for your first order and can be made by check or credit card through myBlessings.
You may estimate the total cost of your order from the order form or use the calculation tallied by the excel spreadsheet. We will begin processing your order after we have received a faxed/emailed copy of your check. Please make sure to mail the original check as we will not debit your account from the check copy.
Your billing contact will receive a final invoice, including freight charges, via email. Please be aware that even if you make a prepayment, a balance may be due. Shipping charges are not included in pre-payment estimate. Please check your invoices carefully!
All invoices are sent via email after you receive your medicine. We do accept credit card payments through myBlessings only, however, a personal check is acceptable if the ministry name & order number are in the memo line.
You may receive multiple invoices if you have a back order.
Please fill out the required documents and email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (918-250-1281) the completed documents to us.
If your state is not listed and you have team members in multiple states, we are happy to send the order to a state that is listed so long as a physician in the state to which the medicine will be shipped signs the order and the order goes directly to the address on that physician’s license. As an alternative, if your state is not listed and you are not able to ship your order to a state that is listed, we would be glad to work with you to send your order directly to the country in which the medicine will be used. Please check back often as we are continuing to work to acquire licensing in new states.
A physician (M.D. or D.O) is needed to place an order on our general International or US order form. A dentist (D.M.D. or D.D.S.) may place an order using our Dental order form. Any other persons are able to use our Vitamins and Supplies order forms for either International use or use in the US.
To assure appropriate control of the medicine being ordered, the medical provider signing the Pharmaceutical Trip Application must have an active license in the state to which the medicine will be shipped.
We source our products both domestically and internationally.
This means these items are to be used only outside the United States. Once taken outside the U.S., the products cannot be returned to the U.S.
Please see our U.S. or International order forms for detailed costs.
Check, money order, or Master Card, Visa, Discover, and American Express if you sign up to the myBlessings account access.
The prepayment is an estimated amount and does not include freight charges which are difficult to estimate since they are based on weight and destination. The end of the invoice shows a recap of Total Charges, Prepayment Applied, and any balance due.
Sometimes it is necessary for us to ship the bulk of your order before all the products are available in our warehouse. If we are able to ship a subsequent order in time for you to receive it before your departure, we will create a back order which is shipped and billed separately.
If your destination country requires future expiration dates, fill in that date on page 2 of the application in the blank. We never ship expired medicines.
Orders will be shipped based on product availability and trip departure date.
Please complete all require paperwork and call us to let us know about your rush needs.
Contact us to cancel your order or discuss the possibility of returning unopened medicines.
1M means it is a 1,000 ct bottle. Please see the key on the first page of the order form.
· All orders that are sent via UPS Ground or Old Dominion standard freight to an address within the US will qualify for free shipping. For expedited orders (UPS Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, 3 Day Select, and Old Dominion Expedited), Blessings International will cover what would be equivalent to UPS Ground or Old Dominion standard freight. The mission team will be responsible for the expedited portion of the services.
· Orders shipped internationally (direct to the international location) will be eligible for free shipping for orders of $5,000 or more. For International shipments of less than $5,000, Blessings International will cover the costs of inland shipment to the port of export with the receiving organization being responsible for the remaining costs. For all International shipments, the receiving organization will be responsible for any destination services or costs such as Customs Fees, Duties, Taxes, In-Country Storage and Delivery, etc.
All churches are considered to be 501(c)(3) organizations even if they have not applied for formal recognition. The IRS will send a “no record church letter” upon request, and at no charge, to any church that calls with their EIN (Employer Identification Number). This request does not mean you are applying for formal recognition status. The IRS said all churches must have an EIN, resulting from completion of form SS4. The number to call to request your 501(c)(3) letter from the IRS is toll free 877-829-5500 Press 2 then 4 when prompted. This will connect you with the IRS Customer Service that deals only with tax exempt organizations. Please ask for a “no record church letter” when you call. We will accept a “no record church letter” in lieu of a 501(c)3 letter. Here is a sample of the letter they will send at the request of a church official: 501c_No Record Church sample
