Shipping FAQ - Policies
What is the standard turnaround time for shipping?
On average, orders ship 3-5 business days after an order is placed. However, orders placed during new releases and sales at times can take 1-3 weeks for shipment. Please note, during high volume periods, the shipping labels are printed in advance and movement on the packages can be seen 1-3 business days after tracking is emailed.
Where is my order?
Please refer to your tracking number for up to date information on shipping status. I currently use the USPS as my main shipping carrier - if there are further issues with your tracking, please contact USPS for assistance. Please note there are occasionally unforeseen delays and interruptions with service that may affect expected arrival time.
If a package has not been marked delivered, my policy is to wait at least 4 weeks domestic and 8 weeks international from the date the package was shipped until the package is declared lost. After this point, you may contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I placed my order and need to change my address.
Address changes after order placement are not guaranteed as orders start processing as soon as they are received. However, you may still email us at email@example.com to see if the address can be updated.
For all packages marked 'delivered' but not received: Occasionally the USPS will mark a package delivered 1-2 days before the package arrives. I kindly ask that you be patient in these instances and wait 1-2 days before reaching out to me. If the package has still not appeared, please check with the office (if you live in an apartment complex) or check with neighbors to see if the package can be delivered. If not, check with your local post office or the USPS can be reached at https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm. They can also be contacted at 1-877-275-8777 to see if the package can be recovered and delivered correctly. If you still have on luck after all of the above, you may contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org -- Lost packages are handled on a case-by-case basis.
Where is my subscription box order?
Subscription boxes are mailed on the last week of each month. There are occasionally delays, but subscribers will be given notice in case of delay. Please refer to the tracking number that is sent when the package ships.
Where is my tracking?
Tracking is emailed to your on file email address once your order has shipped. Please refer to this tracking number before reaching out. However, if your tracking is not available as it sometimes does not update international tracking numbers, please contact us at email@example.com for regular orders and firstname.lastname@example.org for subscription box orders.
