Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Panda Planner undated?

We want people to be able to start using Panda Planner whenever, and not have to wait for some landmark.

Another great thing about an undated planner is that you’ll never waste a page if you miss a day. With a normal, dated planner, those missed days are pages that are lost forever. With Panda Planner, you won’t ever waste a page of paper.

Why are the Monthly, Weekly, and Daily sections separated?

Because the Panda Planner is undated, we've separated the Monthly, Weekly and Daily sections. We’d like to have the weekly review every seven days, but, in reality, you might miss a day or two during the week. By separating the sections, there's no pressure when you miss a day and no guilt about losing pages. In case you don’t use it every day, we offer enough monthly sections to span up to six months and enough weekly sections to last a full quarter. We optimized the design to give you the most from your investment.

Why is it only 3 months?

The Panda Planner is designed to last three months because trying to focus on goals beyond three months is unrealistic. We wanted to create a quarterly planner so you can stay focused on attainable goals in the next 90 days.

Why are there 6 monthly pages?

We find that some of our users use Panda Planner intermittently, which is why we provide 6 monthly pages. This gives people the flexibility to use Panda Planner as frequently as they’d like.

Why isn’t it a full year?

Panda Planner’s unique system dedicates two pages to every single day. We designed and rigorously tested this system to give you all the tools you need in the least amount of space. If we wanted to offer a yearly planner, the Daily section alone would be over 700 pages! Obviously, this is too large to carry around and not very useful.

We’ve also found that creating goals for a whole year is difficult and so many changes occur month to month. We want Panda Planner to help people focus on attainable 3-month goals.

Why is the planner so expensive for something that only lasts three months?

We understand that Panda Planner seems like an investment for a three-month planner, but the productivity gains you’ll see in return will more than justify the cost.

Think about it this way: If your Panda Planner gives you just one extra hour per week, you’re getting 52 hours of your time and your life back over the course of a year. If you value your time at $15 an hour, that’s a $780 value in one year! And that’s a conservative estimate—most of our customers get way more than an hour back per week.

What’s more? In comparison to other productivity systems and planners, Panda Planner is both more affordable and offers more features than the competition. For example, Best Self Journal offers a quarterly planner for $32 a piece, a yearly investment of $128. While Best Self includes similar gratitude exercises, Panda Planner provides a more comprehensive, science-backed system designed to make you happier and more productive for a maximum investment of $108 per year. Plus, we have less expensive options to choose from that give you all the same benefits at a lower cost!

Which Panda is right for me?

Do you sell outside the U.S. or ship internationally?

Our website isn't currently taking orders for shipment outside the United States. You can, however, order a Panda Planner from Amazon.com or Amazon.ca and have it shipped internationally.

How long will shipping take?

Amazon handles all of our shipping in the U.S. We've found most Panda Planners arrive within 2-5 business days, however, please allow for 5-7 business days. In rare cases, it might take longer if shipping to a P.O.Box, Alaska or Hawaii. You can check the status of your shipment via the tracking number provided in your shipment confirmation email.

Where can I find my tracking number?

The tracking number should be located within your shipment confirmation email (not order confirmation email). If you are unable to find your tracking number we would be happy to provide it for you, just email us at support@pandaplanner.com.

How do I get all the eBooks and 10x Productivity Videos?

Information on how to access the eBooks, along with the corresponding productivity videos is located on the first page of your Panda Planner. Follow the link located on page one to access awesome resources that will help you build the life you were meant to live.

Can I give the eBooks or videos to someone else?

Of course! Feel free to send the link on page one of your Panda Planner to your friends, family members, and co-workers so they can get instant access to all the eBooks, videos, and more! Be sure to give them the discount code provided with your Panda Planner so they can try out Panda Planner too.

Any advice on how to get the most out of Panda Planner?

We’ve created several videos answering just that! The first page of your Panda Planner will show you how to get access to these videos and other great resources.

Do you have any other colors besides black?

We do! We offer our Panda Planner Classic and our Panda Planner Pro in cyan, orange, and purple — you can check out our color Classics here and Pros here.

Will there be a dated version?

We do not plan on making a dated version for Panda Planner Classic.

We are considering creating a dated version for Panda Planner Pro for 2020, but nothing is official yet. The best way to stay updated on the launch of this product and all other Panda Planner news is to sign up for our mailing list. You can do that at the bottom of this page!

Will there be a spiral bound version?

New covers and bindings for Panda Planner are in our product pipeline for 2019-2020, but we do not have an official date yet. The best way to stay updated on the launch of these products and all other Panda Planner news is to sign up for our mailing list. You can do that at the bottom of this page!

Will there be a version with a Monday start instead of a Sunday start?

This is not currently in our product pipeline, but be sure to check back in 2020!

How thick is the paper? Will my fountain pen bleed through?

Panda Planner uses high quality, 100g weight paper. Our customers say that they use fountain pens, markers, and fine point Sharpies without a problem.

Do you offer a mobile app?

We’re not currently making a digital version of Panda Planner. We intentionally designed it to be a physical, handwritten experience.

We are planning on launching a companion mobile app in late 2019. The best way to stay updated on this launch and all other Panda Planner news is to sign up for our mailing list. You can do that at the bottom of this page!

Why does the “How I'll Improve” section only have one place to write instead of three?

While we worded the prompt "How I'll Improve" very carefully so that you'll answer positively, we found that focusing on improving just one aspect of your day keeps you from feeling overwhelmed. We are constantly updating our planners to give you the best experience.

What if I don’t like my Panda Planner?

Panda Planner was designed with great attention to detail so our customers can get the most possible benefit out of them. With that said, we recognize that it’s not for everyone. Because of this, we have the Panda Planner Money Back Guarantee. If you don't like your Panda, reach out to our support team at support@pandaplanner.com and we’ll take care of you.

Are Panda Planner and Passion Planner the same thing?

When you compare the Panda Planner and the Passion Planner side by side, you’ll quickly notice that they’re very different. The Panda Planner places a heavy focus on developing happiness (every morning, night, week, and month) and improving productivity. To learn more about the differences between Panda Planner and Passion Planner, check out this article.

How does Panda Planner compare to the Best Self Journal?

The Best Self Journal is similar in the sense that it also has some gratitude exercises. Panda Planner's entire design is based on validated principles from positive psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral science that are proven to make you happier and more productive. We know the fastest route to fulfillment, and, after years of testing, we think we've built the best planner out there for improving every aspect of your life.

Where is the product made?

Panda Planner was designed with love in Boston, MA and is manufactured with care in China.

What material is the cover made from?

Panda Planner's cover is made from eco-friendly materials, including recycled cardboard and PU/vegan leather.

Why a Panda?

In some cultures pandas represent balance and that is the goal of Panda Planner. It was created to help cultivate work-life balance, boost happiness, and increase productivity. The Panda seemed fitting for a product all about, well, finding balance.

Do you sell your products wholesale?

We currently do not sell our Panda Planners wholesale to other businesses for resale. If you are looking to make a larger order, please contact us at support@pandaplanner.com for discounted pricing.

Do you have any retail locations?

At this time, we only sell our products on pandaplanner.com and on Amazon. But, you never know what the future might bring. If you would like to take a closer look at the Panda Planner, be sure to sign up to receive a copy of our print-at-home PDF.

Why is your price higher on Amazon? Will you honor the lower price and refund the difference on my Amazon order?

Amazon charges us fees to list on their website. Since we don’t have those fees for selling on our website, we pass the savings on to you.

What is Panda Planner Venture? When will Venture be available?

We’re excited to introduce Panda Planner Venture, a quarterly planner designed for entrepreneurs to help their business thrive.
