Refunds for unshipped goods: Refunds for unshipped goods are provided less Paypal fees, which are not refunded to us.


Item marked delivered but not at mailbox?  The fastest way to resolve is to contact your local post office and explain the situation.  Most of the time it was accidentally delivered to a neighboring address, and the local branch can view the GPS coordinates of the delivery scan to confirm.  Alternatively you can fill out a form at but this will add time to the process.  Most of the time the missing package is found and redelivered.

Full details regarding mail delivery are available on our shipping policies page.

Tracking, Global Advantage, GlobalPost Shipments: If the shipping method at checkout indicates "no tracking", we really can't fully track the parcel.  GlobalPost shipments may have some limited tracking but it typically stops within the US borders.  This does not indicate a problem with the shipment.  If it has been in transit for longer than 30 days, please contact us so that we may follow up with GlobalPost on the parcel.

Additional tracking detail for GlobalPost shipments can be found on the GlobalPost tracking page:

Collaborations, YouTube, social media review kits: At this time we are not able to provide parts in exchange for social media reviews.
