If the tracking information indicates that your order was delivered but you have not received it, be sure to check everywhere - occasionally carriers leave deliveries with neighbors, building managers, or places such as your porch, garage, or even behind bushes.

If your order was shipped via US Postal Service:

We suggest that you call or visit your local post office with the tracking number and ask to speak with the postmaster. The postmaster can ask the carrier where the package might have been left. We do not recommend calling the 800 number for the USPS. Usually a Google search will help you find the local phone number for your post office, but going in person is best.

The sooner you speak to the postmaster, the better. The more time that passes, the harder it will be for the carrier to remember the delivery details.

If your order was shipped UPS or Fedex:

Call UPS at 800-742-5877 or Fedex at 800-GO-FEDEX with the tracking number to report non-receipt of package so that an investigation can be started.

If the tracking information shows the item was returned to us, please email Your shipping address may have been entered incorrectly, the driver may have unsuccessfully attempted delivery, or the carrier may have mis-delivered it.
