My package has been marked “delivered” but I never received it. 

As we are not responsible for any transit issues that may arise due to the parcel carriers once packages have left our facility, we’re unable to refund or replace packages that show "delivered" by the parcel carrier's tracking system. You will need to open a claim with the parcel carrier in the event of a non-receipt package that has been marked as delivered.

  • In the event that a package is returned to our facility by the parcel carrier and the shipping address was entered INCORRECTLY, we will either refund the order less the cost of shipping, or ship the products out again after postage is paid by the customer. 
  • If a package is returned to our facility by the parcel carrier and the shipping address was entered CORRECTLY, we will replace the package for no additional postage; replacement will be shipped only after the original package returns to our facility, and only in the original shipping method that was selected.
Sales Taxes
Shipment or pickup within the state of Arizona is subject to state and local sales tax, except organizations furnishing tax exemption documentation and completion of any required forms.
