Order Fulfillment

Thank you for your support of Mata Traders and our fair trade mission. Mata strives to process your order within 3 business days, although it may take a little longer during high volume periods, such as sales. Our office and warehouse are open Monday-Friday. Orders placed after 12pm CT on Friday and over the weekend will be processed on Monday, including Expedited Shipping orders. Our office and warehouse are closed on all major US holidays, so orders placed on holidays will be processed the next business day. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

Sales Tax

Illinois is an origin based state for sales tax purposes. Since Mata Traders’ fulfillment warehouse is located in Illinois, residents of Illinois are subject to a Cook County sales tax rate of 10.25% as a result of online purchases.
