Our Shipping Only Tool
What is our Shipping Only Tool? We use this tool to collect tracking information from you about packages that are currently on transit to our U.S. warehouse. This tracking information (in the form of tracking numbers) is from delivery companies such as Fedex, UPS, USPS and DHL. We use these tracking numbers to automatically send you confirmation emails once your packages arrive at our U.S. Address.
We also use your Shipping Only Tool entries to determine if you would like your packages consolidated and shipped together, or shipped separately.
You are also prompted to provide us with the contact information of the recepient of the package when providing us with your tracking numbers.
Using our Shipping Only Tool is required when using any of our Shipping Only services. Any pacakges not entered into our Shipping Only Tool will be shipped and invoiced separately. You should provide us with your tracking information before your packages arrive at our US warehouse. Click here

In the event that an item has to be returned or sent to a different location, we can do this for you at your cost. We work with FedEx to process return packages, which they will usually pick up from our warehouse and deliver to the desired location. We will arrange all of this on your behalf. If you wish to arrange your own shipping method or if you get a return label from the seller, kindly note that we do not do drop-offs to any shipping companies, courier drop-off points or any locations in the US. The courier company must pick up the item from our US warehouse. We are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
