Notice of Credit Card Payment Changes

Due to online changes in compliance regulations, and to bring tighten security in line with best practices at online transactions, the bank terminals are applying new protocols for online transactions. These new policies for the use of credit cards and debit cards on online platforms are more strict with the only intention to thwart unauthorized card usage.

Now the transactions online that do not have the EXACT information registered at the issuer bank will be declined instantly. The developing team is working to provide a more user-friendly form to input the private information while complying with the required layers of security. In the meantime, incomplete names, wrong zip-codes/postal codes or old addresses will no longer be accepted into pending status.

To avoid a declined transaction, please make sure to put the name as printed on the card with the exact billing address associated with the card.

Name Doe
1230 567 9876 5462
12/ 99      125
SHIPPING/OLD Address St., State, Zip-code

Name INIT. Doe
1234 567 9876 5462
12/ 99      123

BILLING Address St., State, Zip-code

We apologize for all the inconveniences, but we hope you understand that we cannot override these changes, these protocols are being implemented by bank entities for your own protection against fraudulent activities online. It only takes 1 typo on the name, a wrong CVV code, or if the billing address of the card does not match the information provided by the bank the transaction will be declined immediately.

Time Honored Formulas is Back Online

We are deeply sorry for the inconveniences with our website. Our server suffered a terrible outage keeping us down for over 6 days, and it took us a lot to get hold of the technical support necessary to reconnect the server, so we were not able to process any orders online or receive the emails on a timely manner, our website is currently back on and we have taken extra measures to prevent another outage and keep our servers on.

We really appreciate your patience and we value our customers. Even though this may be consider a very common issue, in a pandemic time when not all workers are physically on site this disruption has cost us valuable time and most importantly the satisfaction of our customers.

After this experience we identified a number of things we should be doing better, like the way we communicate with our customers during a service disruption, so we will continue improving our protocols and work in conjunction of third-party monitoring services to avoid this kind of problems in the future.

Thank you so very much for your patience and we really appreciate all the emails and comments of support we have received from you during this outage.



We want to inform our customers that due to the multiple new protocols on internet for online communication resulting from the pandemic crisis worldwide, we must verify the authenticity of the online accounts, most users are verified due to their continued used of our websites, but for those with old accounts with none or low activity up to May 2019, will require verification of their emails. The inactive accounts will be automatically deleted after one (1) year of inactivity. This is a measure aimed to fix the notification problems on certain email platforms, and to integrate the tracking number notifications directly to the user’s emails.

The verification is a simple automatically generated message to confirm receipt of your order via the Internet. You do not need to reply to this e-mail, just clicking the safe link validates your account and it’s a one time requirement.

We thank you for being our customer.
