Can I pay using Paypal without a Paypal Account?
Yes, although we highly recommend that you have a Paypal account to benefit all its usage ability. Without a Paypal account, all you need is any Debit card/ Credit card that are supported by Paypal.
How will I know if the payment has already been recived and verified?
After payment, please check into your Account, under Order Status after 2 working days to see the payment status.
If your status is stated as PENDING DELIVERY, it means that payment has already been confirmed and verified.
Why do I need immediately pay after I check out?
As all samples are on a “first-come-first served” basis, the system can only hold your orders up to 24 hours after check out. To ensure that you can get your desired samples, it is highly recommended that you make your payment immediately after checking out.
Can I cancel a transaction that I have already pair for?
Unfortunately, once payment for shipping and handling has been made, all transactions are final.
Can I make advance payments for my future orders?
Unfortunately, no. As much as we want to make it easier to our members, paying in advanced will open room for errors which we are avoiding to happen.
Can I combine my 2 transaction orders for 1 shipping & handling fee?
We regret to inform that we don't allow this. 1 transaction order equals to 1 shipping & handling fee.
I paid after the 24 hour lead time without informing Sample Room in advanced about my late payment, and my order has been expired. What will happen to my order and payment?
Once expired, your order is considered cancelled and has already been allocated to someone else. Kindly be informed that Sample Room has the right to not refund the payment or acknowledge it for your next order. Sample Room is aiming to work towards an efficient platform so the 24-hour lead time payment is strictly to be followed.
I made an over the counter bank payment and lost my deposit slip reciept, what will happen to my order?
Unfortunately, we can only process orders for over the counter bank payments if you have a scanned deposit slip receipt. We won't be processing your order without the scanned deposit slip receipt; this is also to lessen errors and malicious users.

I want to purchase more points. WHy can I only purchase points once in every 2 months?
As we want Sample Room to be a community that shares their product discoveries, we still want the members to be part of the gain-more-points through product reviews. If we don’t put a limit to it, members will just keep on buying points and not write reviews anymore, don’t you think?
Why do you need to expire in 2 months the 1000 points that I purchased? Isn't it supposed to be mine already?
We have given you 2 months to choose the products that you want with the bountiful points that you purchased from us; your points will definitely stretch your sampling to more products, and more premium items! By the end of the second month, we are sure that the value of your samples availed would exceed far more the price you have paid for signing up for our VIP membership.
Do you also expire the incentive points I gained during the 2-month period that I'm a Sample Room VIP member?
No. You get to keep the incentive points you earned. Only the original 1000 points are to be expired after 2 months.
Am I assured of stocks when I'm a Sample Room VIP member?
No. As how Sample Room works, everything is on a first come first served basis. BUT, we will make sure that we will only open limited slots for the Sample Room VIP membership for its exclusivity in nature. From time to time, there would also be premium brands that only you can get to avail due to its “premium points” and VERY limited quantity.
I'm very satisfied and happy being a Sample Room VIP member, how to I renew my membership?
We will send you an email for your renewal of membership once your 2 months time limit has lapsed.
