You can also login to your account at any time to check the status of your shipment and view tracking from the main page after logging into your account. Tracking numbers may take a full 24-48 hours from the ship date to activate, and it's normal for a few days to go by without a location update. Please be aware that if your order contains more than one item you may receive more than one tracking as products may ship from different locations depending on the item ordered.

All shipments come equipped with forwarding capabilities which means customers can edit their shipping address while a shipment is in transit by contacting a USPS Post Office and requesting 'Mail Forwarding' to get your package re-routed. Please be aware it can take up to an additional 2 weeks to arrive once a shipment has been re-routed.
