What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are advance purchases made on popular and high-demand products that are scheduled to be shipped at a future date. It means that the pre-order item has already been produced and on its way to our warehouse, but not immediately available for shipping. Each collection or item available for pre-order will have its own specific shipping timeline provided on the product page. These dates are not guaranteed, but we will do our best to update our site with any changes.
Please note that we never offer pre-orders on items that have not been manufactured yet.
What are the advantages of buying a pre-order item?
We only offer pre-orders on items or collections that are high demand and have a greater chance of being sold out quickly. Pre-orders are a great way to guarantee that an item will not be sold out upon arrival to our store.
How long will it take to ship out my pre-order?
Waiting times vary from item to item. Usually, shipping timelines range between 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the item. Pre-order shipping timeline is listed on the product page. Once the item is available in our warehouse, your order will be dispatched within 1-2 days. All pre-orders are shipped in the matter of priority
Please keep in mind that if you placed an order containing a pre order item, the entire order will be on hold and dispatched at once. So we recommend separating pre-order purchases from in-stock purchases.
When a delay occurs and why?
COVID-19 has created record-breaking shipment volumes that are taxing logistics networks nationwide, which may cause delays. We only make pre-orders available after we receive confirmation from the carrier with the expected arrival to our warehouse. In the unlikely event of a delay, our Customer Care Team will get in contact with you as soon as possible.
Can I cancel a pre-order item?
Yes, you can! Pre-orders may only be canceled within 48 hours from the purchase. We do not accept pre-order cancellations after 48 hours of order placement. If you have changed your mind about the product purchased in pre-order within 48 hours from purchase, you can cancel the item by contacting our Customer Care Team
Can I return a pre-order item?
Yes, of course! All pre-order items can be returned if they meet our Return Policy requirements
IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
Lastly, please ensure that you can wait for the pre-order item to arrive within specified shipping timeline. We understand that pre-orders can be stressful and we are here to support you every step of the way. Pre-orders help our small business grow and we would never risk breaking your trust by not delivering on our promise. If you have any questions about pre-orders or are nervous about placing a pre-order, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Care Team
