We really apologize that your item was not delivered to you. As much as we would like to have all the items be shipped smoothly, we really do not have control over other possible reasons/factors why an item did not arrive in one’s mailbox. What we can recommend is that you can check with neighbors to see if they possibly have the package or check your local post office.
Most customers who have the same situation as you have found their item either with their neighbor or at the local post office. All domestic delivery issues become the responsibility of the local postal service once it’s been shipped. You may contact them directly.
Please make sure that you have entered your correct and complete shipping details when you ordered. We will NOT be held responsible for packages that are sent to the wrong address that the buyer has entered.
Item was attempted for delivery but failed, this may due to several reasons. Please contact the carrier for clarification. Please be informed that we will NOT be held responsible for packages that have failed to deliver due to:
- Item refused by the addressee
- Incorrect / Illegible / Incomplete address
- Expired Retention Period – in some countries, receivers are advised to claim their packages in the local post office. If left unclaimed, the parcel will be sent back to our warehouse.
- Addressee Absence – Addressee not available at the time of delivery
- Customs Policies, Rules, and Regulations
If you haven’t received your package, we’d advise you to contact your local post office to arrange a re-delivery or collect your item right away. Generally, the carrier has collection deadline, we’d advise you pick up your package at once, or it might be returned to our warehouse.
If this happens, we will have to wait to see if the package gets returned back to us.
