How do I track my order?
If you order has been dispatched via a trackable delivery method you will be able to find tracking information through the orders section of your account. You are also able to track the item through the carrier company’s website with the tracking number we have provided.
My order hasn’t been dispatched yet, what’s happening?
This delay on dispatch could be for various reasons with the most common as follows:
Order placed outside of dispatch times.
Your payment card has been declined. A delay on receipt of your items from
the publisher or manufacture which is out of our control.
Adverse weather conditions especially in the winter months which has caused disruption.
Please also make sure to check if any notifications have been sent to you regarding the status of your order. If you have been notified that your card payment has been declined first make sure to check if the card has expired. If the card is in date contact the bank directly as they will be the only ones that can provide further information regarding the problem.
My order has been dispatched but not arrived yet, what should I do?
Firstly please check that the postal or courier service has not left you any cards or notes stating that they tried to deliver your parcel while you were out. If you do find one of these cards please follow the instructions on the card to arrange collection or another delivery.
If no card has been left please contact the carrier for further information regarding your package.
The tracking information of my order advises on attempted delivery but I wasn’t available to accept it, what should I do?
Please contact the carrier directly, full information on who is delivering your order can be found on your account orders section or your order receipt.
The tracking information of my order advises it has been delivered, however I have not received it, what should I do?
We do request with all our carriers offering a trackable service to only leave the package at the property advised on the address label. This can be missed by the driver sometimes and your package may be released to a neighbour providing a signature is given. We’d firstly advise checking with your neighbours to see if a package has been delivered to them.
Alternatively the package could have been left in a secure location on your property, usually the tracking information would advise this. If you have still been unable to locate the package we’d advise contacting the carrier directly as they would be able to provide detailed information on the delivery of this package.
I do not have any tracking on my order and it’s later than the expected delivery date, what can I do?
If your order has not arrived by the expected delivery date this is usually no reason for concern right away. We would advise first checking with your local sorting office to see if delivery has been attempted or asking your neighbours if the package has been left with them.
I have ordered two or more items at the same time but only one has arrived?
If your orders have been shipped via Royal Mail you have no reason for concern at the moment. We ship all Royal Mail orders out separately so it isn’t unusual for one or more of your packages to have been possibly delayed in the sorting process within Royal Mail. I would expect delivery of your other orders within the next few days.
If your order has been dispatched via DPD courier service yet some of your items are missing from your order, please contact us right away.
It has been more than 15 working days and my order has still not arrived, what should I do?
If your order was shipped via Royal Mail postal service and has still not arrived you will be eligible to raise a lost parcel claim.
Please note EU customers are required to wait 28 working days and rest of the world 40 working days.
