How has COVID-19 impacted shipping?
While we are still operating under the same expected processing times, COVID-19 has caused many shipping delays across all postal services. Orders placed at this time may be impacted by these delays. We’re here to answer any questions or concerns you may have at email@example.com.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) also recently announced that they are temporarily suspending many of their delivery options to Australia due to carrier issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of these suspensions, we've had to temporarily increase the shipping rates for all Australian orders. Please reach out if you have any questions; we appreciate your understanding!
How long do orders take to ship out?
Unless otherwise stated on a product's page, it generally takes us 3 to 5 days after an order is placed to process an order. After processing, your order will be sent on its way to you - shipping times will vary depending on your location.
What if I have a question about my order, or would like to edit my order?
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we’re happy to help! Please include your order number in your email so we can better assist you. We do our best to respond to emails within 24 - 48 hours during the typical business week, but this time may vary as we are a small business. Our office is also not open on the weekend, so any emails received after 5pm on Friday will be responded to as soon as possible the following business week. We appreciate your patience and understanding!
If you would like to edit an existing order, please send us an email at email@example.com within 24 - 48 hours after placing the order. We do our best to accommodate any changes to an order before it has shipped out, but we may not see requests sent more than 24 - 48 hours after the order is placed in time to make the requested changes. Orders cannot be edited once they have been shipped out, and any necessary changes will be processed as a return/exchange.
When will my order arrive?
After your order has been processed, you should receive a shipping confirmation email. This email will include tracking information that you can use to follow the status of your order. If it has been more than 5 days since your order was placed and you have not received a shipping confirmation email, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you ship outside of the US?
Yes, we ship all over the world!
Please note: Each country has their own customs laws, and in some cases additional duty charges may apply upon receiving your order. We have no control over these fees - please reach out to your local customs office for more details on what you can expect when ordering from the US. Any customs or duty charges are the responsibility of the customer.
What is your return and exchange policy?
We’ll accept returns and exchanges on any products that are unworn, unwashed, and/or unopened within 30 days of receiving your order. If you'd like to initiate a return or exchange please email us at email@example.com, and we will let you know what the next steps are. For standard returns and exchanges, the customer is responsible for all shipping fees.
What if my order is returned to sender?
If your order has been returned to sender, we will notify you once we receive it. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help get your order sent back on its way to you. The customer is responsible for all re-shipping fees.
My order has been marked as 'delivered' but has not yet arrived, what now?
Sometimes packages can take another 24 hours to be delivered, even after being marked as 'delivered' on their tracking information. If 24 hours has passed after your package was supposed to be delivered and it has still not arrived, please reach out to us at email@example.com, and we'll make sure you're taken care of.
How do digital downloads work?
If you purchased a digital download or a product that comes with a digital download, you'll be emailed a link from a service called FetchApp. Copy the URL from the email into your browser, and you'll be taken to a website where you can download the files.
How do pre-orders work?
When we have items available for pre-order, they will be notated by a [PRE-ORDER] tag in the product title. Please read the product description carefully, as it will contain information about when the item will ship out.
Please note: Any order that includes a pre-order item will not ship out until the stated ship by date. If there are items you'd like to have ship out before the pre-order's ship out date, please place a separate order for these items.
