Return to Sender
Return to Sender occurs when the delivery company cannot get the parcel to you and returns the parcel to us at our cost.

  • -  If the reason of RTS is due to an error made by us resulting in parcel not sent to the correct address, we acknowledge our mistake and will resend the parcel to the correct address at our cost.
  • -  If the reason of RTS is due to an error on your part and as a result, we incurred the additional charges by our delivery company, we reserve the right to pass the incurred charges to you as a condition of resending the parcel to you.

Errors on your part could be due to you providing an incomplete or incorrect shipping address due to mistake or negligence (incomplete shipping address applies to not putting a Company Name where delivery is sent to a business address). It can also be due to your failure to collect the parcel within the time frame (usually around 2 weeks) advised on the reminder notice left by the shipping company in your mailbox during their attempted delivery. Not receiving the reminder notice due to it missing in your mailbox is not a valid reason for your inaction.
If the above-mentioned scenario occurs, you have the option to cancel this order when it has been returned to us; by which we will then refund you the amount you paid for the order, minus all shipping costs incurred as well as a restocking and handling fee (amount is around 15% of item or
minimum of $10 whichever is higher).
