What determines if something is a 'special order'?
A special order is any item that is not in our inventory at the time of purchase and needs to be ordered on your behalf. Special orders are final sale and cannot be cancelled or returned. Please see our
Returns & Exchanges section for more information.
Will my credit card be charged immediately?
No. Once we have confirmed stock for your order as well as shipping information then your order will be processed and your credit card will be charged. Your order will ship shortly thereafter.
How will I know if my order has been shipped?
Once your order has been processed and charged shipping arrangements are made. You will receive an email with all of the tracking information once the item(s) has shipped. If your order has multiple shipments (some items ship from different locations) you will receive tracking numbers for each portion of your order.
Why has this item not shipped yet?
While we do our best to fulfill all orders within four (4) business days after they are placed, our inventory is constantly changing in order to respond to your needs. It is important to us to offer you the widest selection possible and to fulfill each and every order. It may sometimes take us a bit longer to ship some of the items you have ordered, as we want to ensure that we do everything possible in order to locate them. As soon as items have shipped you will receive an email with the tracking information.
What if I need to change my order?
Order changes must be received within 24 hours of placement of the original order. Changes or requests made after 24 hours may not be accepted.
