Have questions about our shipping process? We’ve got answers.
How much is shipping?
We are happy to offer free shipping on all orders of two or more items. If you order just one and live in the US, shipping is $7, and if you are outside of the US a single item order will be $12.
But where do you ship?
We currently offer shipping to the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. We are looking to expand shipping in the future, so hold tight if you’re in a different country! (Or move, because we hear Australia is nice this time of year.)
How do you ship in the US?
We use USPS for our standard shipping. Because of this, we can ship to any address that USPS recognizes. This includes PO Boxes, and US territories and military bases.
How do you ship internationally?
If you live in Canada, Australia, or the UK, we use your local shipping carriers. For Canada we ship with Canada Post, for Australia we use Australia Post, and if you’re in the UK your orders will be delivered through Royal Mail.
So when will my order ship?
It takes about 1-4 business days for your order to be processed and shipped. You will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking as soon as this happens. Any orders placed before 4 PM PST will ship the same evening if order volume permits. Any order placed after 4 PM PST on Friday, or over the weekend, will ship out the following Monday. We are unable to process orders on weekends or holidays.
Ok, so when will my order arrive?
If you are in the US, your order will arrive within 7-10 business days, depending on customs.* If you’re one of our girlfriends in AK, HI, PR, or a US military base, your order may take an additional 2-4 weeks.
If you are in Australia or the UK, your package will arrive 8-12 days after it ships. Canadian orders will arrive within 7-14 business days.* Please note that the time your items take to clear customs will also vary by location.
*We work as hard as we can to stick to these timeframes, but in the event of weather, carrier delays, or production issues, your delivery may take longer. We promise we’ll make sure any wait is as short as possible.
Please note that due to Canada Post's backlog from the strike, shipping to Canada may take an additional 5-7 days on top of our regular timeframe.
Can I expedite my order?
At this time, we are offering only standard shipping, but the anticipation makes it so exciting, right?
Can I make changes to my order after it’s been placed?
Because we do our best to fulfill every order as soon as possible, we are unable to make changes to order details, including address changes, once it has been placed. If you do need to change anything, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can and we will do our best to accommodate changes before your order processes. Thanks for your understanding.
Will I get a tracking number?
Absolutely. Right after you place your order you will receive a confirmation email letting you know we got all the information, and giving you an order number for your records. When it ships, about 1-4 business days after placing the order, we will send you a shipment notification email with tracking information so you can keep an eye on its progress. Please note that your tracking link will show movement after your order has cleared customs in 5-8 business days, so don’t be alarmed it the status isn’t available right away.
Will I be charged extra taxes after my item clears customs? (International.)
If you live in Australia or the UK, your deliveries are shipped on a DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) system, where you do not pay any additional fees when your order ships or crosses a border. Duties and taxes are calculated directly into your shipping costs, and are taken care of on check out. This does mean that duties and taxes are non-refundable.
Canada operates on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, which means your duties and taxes are not charged on check out, but rather on delivery. Paying these taxes releases your order from customs. Your local customs office can help you with more information.
What happens if my package is stolen?
That is always frustrating when a package goes awry. Once your items are shipped however, we cannot be liable if it is lost or stolen. If your tracking number shows that your package as delivered but you did not receive it, please contact USPS for more information.
