Why is it taking so long for my package to be delivered?

  • We offer our sincere apologies for any late deliveries and inconvenience you may experience. Due to a busy season and procedures and safety policies as a result of Covid 19, our shipping carrier is experiencing processing and shipping delays. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
  • Furthermore, delivery times are dependent on several factors including destination, type of delivery service, time of season, customs clearance, and carrier delivery load.
  • Our fulfillment center is located in Germany. Therefore, deliveries to most European countries should experience little delay. If you are experiencing a delay, it is likely caused by an increase in deliveries for the carrier during a busy time of the season.
  • International order delivery is also dependent on carrier workload and the time of season.  Additionally, international orders must pass a customs clearance process of the destination country. From our experience, this process can add a few days to several weeks to your delivery time.

My shipment is late or missing, what should I do?

  • Firstly, check the tracking status of your shipment by following the link to the carrier tracking tool, which was included in the delivery notification email you received.
  • This gives you full visibility of your shipment’s transit status.
  • If it is clear that your shipment is late or missing, then please contact us here for support.

ORDER CANCELLATION

How do I cancel my order?

  • Please contact us immediately if you want to cancel your order.
