WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I PLACE MY ORDER?
1. During your checkout procedure, you will be given the option to receive an order confirmation via email. Although you do not have to check this option, we highly recommend that you do. By doing so, a copy of your order, as well as subsequent status changes and shipment confirmations, will be sent to the email address you have entered as part of your personal information (a return email address is required even if you choose not to receive a copy of your order via email. This is to allow us to contact you should there be a problem of any kind with the fulfillment of your order).
2. If you request a copy of your order to be sent to you via email, but do not receive it within an hour or so after clicking the "Place Order" button, chances are you may have mistyped your email address while placing your online order. It happens more often than you think... If this is the case, please send us a separate email with your correct address, and we will manually send you an order confirmation.
3. Receive an “order confirmation” email with all your order details.
4. Once your order ships, your package will be issued a tracking number and the status of your order changed from "Pending" to "Shipped". You will then receive a Shipment Confirmation email with all related tracking information for your package, that connects directly to the UPS site for tracking
5. Finally, bear in mind that, tracking numbers are issued as soon as your package is prepared for shipping. It takes the carrier (UPS) a few hours to pick up the shipment and input its information into the online tracking system. Therefore, tracking information of your Shipment may not be accessible for a few hours. In the event that the tracking information has not yet been updated in UPS’ tracking system, you will receive the following message, "Tracking Number Could Not Be Found in UPS Database" message. Just wait a few more hours (up to 12 may be necessary) for UPS to update the tracking information of your package.
