  • When will my order be shipped?
    • We usually ship within 1-3 BUSINESS days (not including weekends even if our physical shop is open). However, during Sale/Promotion/Busy Periods, orders may take a bit longer to process. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation via email with a tracking number.
    • If your order is a bulk one, please note that it requires additional processing time for shipment.

 

  • Why is my order awaiting fulfillment?
    • No need to worry, awaiting fulfillment just means your order is processing and has not yet shipped! Once your order ships, it will be marked as Fulfilled/Shipped. You'll receive an email with tracking once this happens!

 

  • It’s been more than 5 business days! How can I follow up my order?

  • How would I know if my order is confirmed?
    • Confirmation emails are typically received shortly after an order is placed, or it could be in your “junk” folder.
