Cancelling an order we've already shipped
Once a package leaves out facility, it's in the hands of the carrier, and we're not in control of when your order will reach you, they are. We do our best to use reliable shipping, but issues arise.
If the shipping is taking too long and you're thinking about canceling / having us intercept the package, here are the details for the process:
OPTION ONE: Send the package back to us at your cost once it reaches you and we will refund you the item cost MINUS any shipping costs not covered by your shipping fee once it arrives back it new condition.
OPTION TWO: Ask us to request an INTERCEPT. USPS will charge us $13.95 and any additional shipping, and we will deduct those costs as well as any additional shipping costs not covered by your initial shipping fee from the item once the carrier returns it to us..
IMPORTANT!! We charge a basic flat-rate shipping. We almost always pay more than that for shipping. We will charge you the difference between what you paid for shipping, and what it actually cost us so we aren't making a loss on the shipped cancelled order. Covering the additional shipping is a service we provide to our paying customers, and as much as we'd love to as a service to you, we simply can't take losses on transactions like these where a full refund is involved.
