Shipping Policy

SHIPPING POLICY

Please read this entire page prior to contacting us with general questions about shipping. It is highly likely the answer to your question is here!

PURCHASE SHIPPING INSURANCE HERE if your order value exceeds $200.00 USD! All packages include shipping insurance up to $200.00 USD. Your order value includes both the cost of products and shipping cost.

Any value above $200.00 USD is uninsured unless you purchase shipping insurance here. Without purchasing insurance to cover the full value of your order, you will only be eligible to file a claim up to $200.00 USD no matter what the full value of your package was.

Without full insurance, you will also not be eligible to receive a refund, get items resent, or otherwise be compensated for the remaining value of your order should your package be lost, stolen, damaged during shipping, or otherwise unreceived from the time it is accepted at the carrier. 

Angel Candy Shop is not, and will not be held, responsible for any packages that are lost, stolen, damaged during shipping, or otherwise not received that were sent without full insurance. 

PURCHASE SHIPPING INSURANCE HERE FOR ALL ORDER $200.00 USD +!

Full information on claims below. 

ABANDONED PACKAGE NOTE: If 45 days or more passes since the last tracking activity on an order that has not been received and we are not contacted about this, the order is considered abandoned. This is because shipping carriers have deadlines on how long packages have to file claims and we unfortunately cannot file claims once these deadlines pass. Abandoned orders are not eligible for refunds, to file a claim, or to have orders reshipped.

What shipping carrier do you use? 

Domestic USA packages all ship via USPS, using either Priority Mail or First Class Package Service, depending on the shipping option chosen at checkout. 

International packages ship via DHL.

How long will my order take to ship/arrive? 

All orders have a 2 business day processing time, meaning it may be (at the most) 2 business days between the time you place an order and the time your order is packed. 

The estimated shipping time displayed by carriers at checkout is not indicative of when your item will ship or arrive!  Those estimates are automatically displayed by the shipping carriers and we have no control over them. They are meant to provide an estimate of shipping time once your order has been dropped off and scanned in at the carrier.

Once your order is packed, it will ship on the next business day.

Please note that choosing expedited shipping at checkout does not change the processing time of your order! 

We do not see the shipping option a customer chooses until their order is processed and their label is printed. You must contact us BEFORE ordering if you are placing an order which you need by a certain date and plan to purchase expedited shipping to check if we are able to pull it ahead of schedule and drop it off early. We will try, but cannot always accommodate these requests. 

Please always assume we are running according to our shipping schedule as outlined here, even if you have received package(s) earlier than scheduled on previous orders!

Once your item is packed, you will receive tracking info directly to your email. 

We process orders every day and receiving this email does not mean your order will go out that same day, necessarily.

How long your item takes to arrive once it has been dropped off with the carrier depends on your location. The shipping estimate you saw at checkout is about how long the carrier estimates your package will take to arrive. Once orders are dropped off at the carrier, we have no control over delays or how quickly they reach their destination. 

When your order is processed, you will receive a shipping notification email with tracking info which you can use to see an estimated arrival date for your package. 

How can I track my package / check my order status once it is shipped?

Once you have received your shipping notification, please use the tracking info within that email to see where your package is. 

The USPS tracking tool is here

The DHL tracking tool is here.

Please note, we do not have any further tracking information than is available via these tracking tools. 

Where does my item ship from? 

All Angel Candy packages ship from New Jersey, USA. 

Do you offer overnight or expedited shipping?

You must contact us before placing an order if you need it to be shipped overnight!

Choosing the option for USPS Priority Mail Express at checkout does not mean your order will be processed any faster than other orders, and your order will still have a 2 business day processing time as outlined above unless you contact us BEFORE ordering!

If you need to have your order by a certain date, please email us at hiangel@angelcandyshop.com and we will do our best to make it happen. Please do not check out using the Priority Mail Express option and assume that your order will arrive the next day. Priority Mail Express usually has a delivery time of 1-2 days once the item has been accepted at the carrier. Please keep in mind, we cannot control shipping time/delays once the item has been dropped off with the carrier.

 We do not offer overnight shipping on international orders at this time.  

I paid for expedited shipping, and my package didn't arrive on time. What can I do?

If you paid for USPS Priority Mail Express shipping, please note that the carrier counts shipping time from the time the package was accepted at their facility until the time it was delivered to you. 

Angel Candy's processing time does not factor into their calculation of whether a package was delivered on time.

If your package was not delivered within the promised time given when it was scanned in at the carrier’s facility, you may request a refund for your shipping cost from USPS here

How do I insure my package?

All packages include insurance up to $200.00 USD. To insure the total value of your package if the total of your items plus shipping cost is above $200.00 USD, please PURCHASE SHIPPING INSURANCE HERE. Choose the option that the total value of your package falls under. 

We highly recommend purchasing insurance for the full value of your package! Angel Candy Shop is not, and will not be held, responsible for any packages that are lost, stolen, damaged during shipping, or otherwise not received that were sent without insurance. 

Do you offer international shipping outside of the United States?

Angel Candy offers international shipping to Australia, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Denmark, France, Ireland, China, Russia, Vietnam, Switzerland, Brazil, Finland, United Kingdom, Belize, Malaysia, Turkey, Ukraine, Sweden, and Singapore. 

International customers can choose DHL.

Will I have to pay duties, tariffs (taxes), or import fees for my international order (any order being shipped outside of the United States)?

In general, countries outside of the USA will charge fees and taxes on “dutiable items,” meaning items that are taxable. We have no way of knowing what each specific country considers “dutiable,” or whether they will charge any sort of fee on incoming Angel Candy packages. 

We highly recommend researching or contacting your country's office that deals with customs and import/export matters for clarification. 

To find an estimate of fees, you can use this Import Duties & Taxes Calculator 

Choose option United States in “Importing From:” field and USD into “Currency” field.

In the field “Product description,” give a general, easy to understand description such as “Bikinis” or “Jewelry,” depending on what you are ordering. Please note, this calculator is good for giving an estimate but is not a perfect science, and we give no guarantees as to what your import fees might be. This is simply a tool to help you estimate. You can learn more about how to figure out import related costs at this link: Import Tariffs & Fees Overview, but please keep in mind this is a USA government written document, and may not apply to your country’s rules. 

It is your responsibility to know whether your country charges import fees, tariffs, duty fees, or Value Added Tax fees when using the shipping carrier you choose. It is also your responsibility to cover these fees should they be due. Angel Candy is never responsible for covering any import fee, tariff, or duty fee due on your package, and we will not accept any packages returned because of non-payment of any of these fees.

Please make sure you provide full, accurate contact information at checkout so that customs and/or DHL can contact you about delivery of your package, if need be. Note that DHL considers a package abandoned if they attempt to contact you 3 times, and 2 weeks passes, without a reply. In this case, your package will be lost and you will not be eligible for a refund or claim. PLEASE provide accurate contact information!

Please check your country's rules in regards to incoming imports from the United States and the rules of the shipping carrier you plan to choose before placing an order. You can look up the customs office of your country and contact them for more info. 

My package says it is being returned to the sender, what do I do?

USPS: If your package is being returned to the sender (us!), please email us at hiangel@angelcandyshop.com with your order number and a note about this. We will get back to you with details about how to purchase a new label and have your package resent once we receive it.

If we receive your package as a “return to sender,” we will contact you via the email used to place your order about having it resent. If we do not hear back within 10 business days, your order will be refunded for the items less a $5.50 restocking fee. Your shipping cost will not be refunded as it has been used. We do not have any information about why packages are returned to us, but it is usually an address error, like forgetting a floor or apartment number or accidentally entering the wrong house number. 

 For more info on DHL returned packages, please visit DHL, choose your country, and click “Contact Us” for more info on why your package is being returned. Please note, as outlined above, we will not refund any packages shipped back to us due to non payment of customs fees/taxes/tariffs. 

My package says it has been delivered but it's not here, what do I do?

Oh no! We're sorry this happened. 

USPS Packages: USPS mail delivery trucks have a GPS software that sometimes marks packages as “delivered” prematurely if the package is close to your area. We have experienced ourselves, and heard from customers, that packages that say “delivered” often show up a few hours later or the next day. If it has been 24 hours or more, you should contact the post office that delivers to you with your tracking number. Sometimes they are able to help locate the package. If the package remains lost, please see the below information on how to file a claim. 

What should I do if my package is lost, was stolen, or was damaged during shipping?

These situations are all ones in which a claim should be filed! Here are some reasons why a claim may need to be filed on your package:

Your package was lost. Please note, USPS does not consider a package lost until there has been no activity in the tracking info for 30 days. 

Your package was stolen.

Your package arrived damaged, with items missing, or with items damaged due to something that occurred during shipping. (Please keep all packing and take photos of the package/items that have been damaged!)

Please see below for detailed info about claims.
