Question: I have not received my package, even though tracking number shows delivered. -back to top
Answer: We’re sorry that you have not received your package even though tracking number confirms delivery. The first step you should take is to check all around your house. The package may have been placed where it’s difficult to see (to avoid being stolen if just laying around) such as behind plants, etc. Second step you should take is to check with your neighbors. Sometimes it’s possible that the package has been misdelivered to a neighboring address close to you.
If you are still unable to locate the package, you can give the courier a call using the following contact information, depending on the shipping courier that made the delivery.

In most cases, we can still offer to send a replacement shipment by splitting the cost 50/50 of the order, with a signature required request as a final option.

In most cases, as a courtesy to our customer, we may be able to offer to send a replacement to your corrected address by splitting the cost 50/50 of the order.
