Cancel Order Requests
If you need to cancel your order, contact us as soon as possible. If your order has not been moved into the fulfillment stage, you will not be charged. If your order has been billed and is in fulfillment, but has not shipped, we will request a refund for you in full. We cannot cancel your order once it has shipped. You will need to return the items and request a refund.
To request a refund, please contact us. Please expect to receive your refund within four weeks of returning the merchandise. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). Please note that you will receive an email when your refund is submitted for processing, but you may not see the funds returned to your card for up to 10 business days.
To receive discounts and free shipping offered during our sales promotions and special offers, you must purchase merchandise within the time-frame of the offer. We will not refund the price difference on past or future purchases of items purchased at regular price.
Cancellation of Orders
On occasion, we may need to cancel your order.
This may occur when we are completely out of stock of an item in our warehouse and stores, and cannot hold your order until new stock arrives from the manufacturer. Or it could be an error in the product listing, such as an incorrect color or a pricing error. We will contact you to let you know, and if possible, we will start a new order for you with the remaining items in your order.
If your shipping address is invalid, and you do not respond to our requests for a correct address within 7 business days, we will cancel shipment and refund your order.
Suspected Fraudulent Orders
If we suspect an order is the result of a stolen credit card we will cancel the order. Please note: We will report attempted fraudulent orders or multiple declined credit cards to authorities.
We reserve the right to cancel any order at any time for any reason.
Order Status Emails
We like to keep you informed throughout the order process. Our system will automatically send an email when your order status has changed. Here are the types of order status emails you may receive and what they mean:
- Order Confirmation - You will receive a copy of the order confirmation you will see on our website by email. If for some reason you did not receive an order confirmation email, try checking your junk folder. If you still do not see an email from us, contact us and we will send you an invoice.
- Awaiting Payment - We will charge your credit card just before we pack your order. Before fulfillment begins, your order will be in Awaiting Payment status. Don't worry - you have already given us your payment details. This just means we have not billed your card yet.
- Manual Verification Required - Occasionally our system may flag your order for review. This typically happens when our fraud filters kick in. We will review your order as quickly as possible and move it to the Awaiting Payment stage if everything looks good.
- Awaiting Fulfillment - Once we have billed your credit card successfully your order status will change to Awaiting Fulfillment.
- Shipped - Good news! Your order has been packed and labeled and is on the way.
- Partially Refunded - If we refunded part of your order.
- Refunded - If we refunded your entire order.
- Canceled - If we canceled your order.
