I received an email titled “Auto Reorder Available to Merge.” What does this mean?
If you have multiple reorders in your account, this means that you have opted to be notified if your Auto Reorders can be merged. You can click on the “my account page” link in the email and opt to merge your orders if desired.
What does it mean to merge my Auto Reorders?
Merging your Auto Reorders means you are choosing to combine your orders to be shipped together. This helps you save on shipping, as you are only paying the shipping fee for one shipment as opposed to multiple Auto Reorder shipments.
How can I merge my Auto Reorders?
If you’d like the possibility to merge your Auto Reorders, there are 2 options to do so. In the first option, you can check the box on your management page.
