You can cancel your order on the same day before 4:00pm (if your order is still in our possesion and not despatched) otherwise we may despatch you order.

If you do not receive your parcel between 14 to 21 days, please let us know immediately so that we can find it for you. We cannot do anything before 14 days and this is because of the policies defined by the shippers. In such situations, we always need a written email from you stating that you could not receive your parcel. In such situations, the shippers may take time of another 4 weeks before they can get back to us with the investigation report. We have to wait for this time frame as per their terms and conditions; there is absolutely no way to make this procedure quicker or earlier. As soon as we receive the feedback from the shippers, we immediately resend you new items or else you can advice us to make a refund for you. In some cases, this might happen because of a spelling mistake while typing in your delivery address so please make sure that you provide us a right delivery address. The delivery estimated time is 2 to 3 working days for the trackable post and the next working day for the next working day delivery. This time is treated only when you place your orders before 4:00pm. Any orders you place after 4:00pm will be processed next morning.
