We know that a package “bouncing back” to us can be one of the most frustrating experiences for our customers when ordering online. To help prevent this from happening, we have provided some useful information so you can make sure your address is complete and appropriate to one of the shipping carriers we offer. Some common ways that an address would be incomplete or inappropriate for the carrier are listed below.

Incomplete address:

  • Package is shipping to a business or private company and address as entered did not include building name.
  • Apartment, building, or suite number was not included in address.

Inappropriate for carrier:

  • Package was requested to ship by way of USPS and there is no mail receptacle at shipping location.

Occasionally, USPS will decide to not leave your package at your location if you are not home to receive it and they cannot find a secure place at which to leave it. They will usually leave a notice with details of where you can pick up your package, usually at your local USPS office/hub. If you need help with this process you are welcome to contact us by calling 1-866-962-4464 or e-mailing Alternatively, you can try their toll free number.

How is the shipping fee for my international order determined?
Shipping fee is based on the weight and destination of your package. We determine this fee by entering the weight of your shipment and location into our UPS world ship program. In some instances, this fee can be equal to or greater than the total cost of the items. This would occur with orders that have a lot of weight and/or for packages that will be traveling a large distance.
