General Ordering Info
How can I order from Hookah-Shisha?
Place your order right here on the website or call us to place it over the phone.
You must be of legal age to purchase tobacco products in your state to order from Hookah-Shisha.com.
All names and parties listed on any given order must complete the age verification process. This includes billing address, shipping address, and the name entered as the credit card holder.
How will I know that my order has been placed successfully?
When you confirm your payment successfully at the final step of checkout, our website will tell you if your card was 'Approved' for the order.
At that point, you should receive a confirmation email. If you do not see it in your Primary inbox, please check your Promotions folder and, lastly, your Spam folder.
When will my card be charged?
Your payment will not be processed until after the order ships from our warehouse.
Wait, if you don't charge my card until after shipping, why do I see a charge on my bank statement?
What you are seeing is not a charge, but a pre-authorization for the order total that can be voided at any time before shipping.
If we end up having to void a pre-authorization for your order, please note that it may take 3-5 days for that pending pre-authorization to disappear from your bank statement.
Why is there a "Mail Order" option during checkout?
Mail Orders are an option for customers who need to order via bank/wire transfer.
You will not be asked for payment when placing a mail order and your order will not be processed for shipping, nor will the products ordered be reserved, until you contact us to submit the payment of your choice.
Can I send an order as a gift?
The short answer is yes. We are still required by law to verify the age of the recipient before shipping, so we do recommend sending the gift to yourself if you do not wish to spoil the surprise.
Any product issues must be reported to us within 30 days of receiving the order.
Anything you'd like to return must be returned unused. Anything you received sealed in packaging (shisha jars, coal packs, any packaging) may not be returned if the original seal has been broken.
If the item you ordered is damaged or defective when you open your package, it is possible we will not require a return. Your first step is to snap a photo of the items in question within 30 days and email the images to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short explanation of the issues at hand -- we'll take it from there.
What if the item is not damaged or defective and I just want to return it?
This is also an option. If you feel like the product you ordered was not up to your expectations, contact us within 30 days via phone, email or LiveChat with your order number to let us know you are planning on sending back product for a refund.
Refunds can be issued back to the card used to place the order, or in the form of Reward Points (store credit). Please note that credit card refunds can take up to 3-5 business days to be processed.
In most cases, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs. In some cases, however, we may be able to send a return shipping label.
International Customers - Due to the nature of international shipping, it is not possible for us to send a return shipping label for orders shipped outside of the United States. Please contact us via email at email@example.com or use our Live Chat function above to find a solution.

Back in Stock Notifications
The product I want to order is out of stock. Can you notify me as soon as it becomes available?
Yes! Unfortunately we are unable to offer any sort of pre-ordering from our website, but if you notice that something is out of stock, we can notify you when it's back!
To sign up for our back in stock notification for any out-of-stock product, simply go to the page of the product in question, click the "Notify Me When in Stock" button, and provide your valid email address.
As soon as that product re-stocks, we will send you an email letting you know.
Does customs charge taxes to import tobacco into my country?
It is possible that customs may choose to inspect and apply customs fees to your order. This choice is made completely at their discretion.
You will be responsible for any additional customs fees applied to your import.
If fees are applied to your order, you may choose to refuse payment, at which point the order will be sent back to our warehouse. We can refund your payment once the package arrives back at our warehouse.
Packages that are refused at customs and returned to our warehouse will be subject to a 15% re-stocking fee.
We will not be able to refund for the cost of shipping.
It is highly recommended that you research and understand your country's tobacco importation laws and customs processes before placing an international order as Hookah-Shisha waives any responsibility relating to customs import issues.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept payment via Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
Paypal does not work with tobacco retailers, so we are unable to accept payment via Paypal under any circumstance.
To ensure that your order is processed for shipping as quickly as possible, please make sure that the billing address you provide us matches the billing address registered to your payment method.
Can I stack coupon codes?
No, you are only able to apply one coupon code per order placed.

On September 1, 2009 Texas House Bill 2154 went into effect raising the Texas OTP (Other Tobacco Products) tax by 325% causing hookah tobacco sold in Texas to become the most expensive in the United States. Due to this unprecedented increase in taxes, Hookah-Shisha.com must charge the additional cost of these tobacco taxes.
To see the way Texas tobacco tax are calculated on your order, multiply the quantity of each size of tobacco by the rates listed below.
50g: $2.10 each 100g: $4.20 each 125g: $5.25 each 200g: $8.40 each 250g: $10.50 each 500g: $21.00 each 1000g: $41.98 each
