How long do shipments take to be delivered?
After you placed your order, it will be transferred to "Processing". This process can take up to 72 hours to complete. After the "Processing" phase is completed, your order will be ready for shipment. We will send you the tracking number via the email that you used when placing your order. Please keep track of which email you used when creating your order, this is the only place you can access your tracking number. Delivery time will take up to 15 - 20 business days. We do not ship on weekends as delivery services do not work. Since an order needs up to 4 weeks to be delivered, please do not email us about delivery times until this time frame has been passed.
You can find more information about our Shipping Policy here.
How do I track my order?
After we have shipped your order, an email update will be sent titled "A shipment from order #******* is on the way". You will find your tracking number and information inside this email. You can also access tracking information by visiting our Tracking page. Simply paste in your tracking number, and see the status of your shipment. Shipping will take 15-20 business days, so please do not email about not receiving your package until the 3-4 weeks have passed.
The email you placed your order with is the only place your tracking number will be sent to so please make sure you used an email that you check frequently.
Please note after receiving your tracking number it can take up to 2-3 days for the tracking to update and come online.
Why is my tracking not updating?
Sometimes orders can become delayed for various reasons. Random checks through customs, weather, postage strikes. Please note that tracking will be updated once your package gets scanned again once it moves to its next warehouse on its pathway to you. If your package is delayed due to external shipping companies, there is no way for us to speed this process up for you.
What shipping service do you use and how do you determine the price?
We use a small shipping service called Yanwen and E-packet to ship orders mainly to North America, Europe, and Oceania. We offer FREE Shipping on all orders.
Why was my order not shipped in one package?
Due to the weight and size of packages, it would be costly for us to send in 1 single package. It's actually cheaper with our shipping method to send the packages in two or more different packages. This varies from product to product though. In most cases, if the product is small enough, we will ship in the same package. This allows us to have cheaper prices across the store.
What payments do you accept?
You can feel confident in purchasing from Shopahoo as we accept payment via PayPal, Visa, Mastercard and American Express debit and credit cards as well as Shop Pay, Apple Pay and Google Pay. So you can choose the one that best suits you. All orders are processed in USD currency. If you placed the order outside of the United States the prices on your statement will be converted to your currency at the best currency rate.
I've changed my mind, I'd like to cancel my order. How do I do this?
Due to the fact we use out of office shipping, we can not guarantee we can cancel your order in time. Regardless, you will need to email us as soon as possible after placing your order with the subject line saying "CANCEL". This will allow our customer service team to sort the emails every morning by that term to quickly let our shipping team know to cancel the order. Again, this needs to be done as quickly as possible. We are not able to refund an order that has been shipped.
Please be informed that a management, processing and transaction fee (10% of your total order value) will be applied for the cancellation.
Full refund only applies to switching orders. Once you place new orders, our system will automatically cancel old orders and refund 100%.
Our email is email@example.com,
My product came damaged, what should I do?
We at Shopahoo try our best to sell high-quality and useful items, although sometimes an order may come damaged or defective. If this has happened you will have to email us. Don't forget to tell us about your problem and to attach photos/videos which can clearly show the issue.
There are 2 options we can offer you. We can either send you a replacement order or you can return the order to us to receive a full refund. If you choose to return the order you will need to provide us photo evidence that you indeed shipped and returned the package to us.
We will provide a return address upon request. Please note that you can only choose one of the above options.
If you would like to ship back your product that is not damaged or defective we will not be covering any return fees but you will receive a full refund upon arrival of your package.
You can find more information about our Return Policy here or contact us via email form at the bottom of this FAQ page.
I had to pay a delivery fee on my order, why?
Once your order has been shipped, it is no longer in our control. This means that certain fees can be placed on packages depending on your location. This depends on each shipping company's policy or customs procedure, you might be charged an extra fee for the final delivery or an import tax. This is probably due to that your shipping address is in a remote area. In this case, please kindly pay them the required fee to receive your order. Shopahoo will not cover any extra expenses needed to receive orders.
Zipcode does not match error. Why is this happening?
This error typically occurs when the billing address entered does not match what is on file with your financial institution.
Firstly, please attempt your order again with updated billing information. Please be informed that you need to match your billing address correctly to the address which you have registered with your card issuer bank. This includes any formatting associated with applicable unit numbers, as well as requiring a full nine-digit zip code for some verification.
Secondly, be advised that every instance in which this error populates results in a pre-authorization, which will simply fall off and never post to your account. For getting better support, please contact your issuer bank to figure it out.
I created my order with the wrong shipping address, what should I do?
If you applied the wrong shipping address to your order, you will need to contact us immediately by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with your correct shipping address. Hopefully, we will be able to change this for you.
If your order has been shipped out already, we apologize - there is nothing we can do in regards to refunds or re-sending packages.
You can try calling your local postal service and with your tracking number that was emailed to try and get them to re-route the package. Since we ship from overseas you will need to wait until the package has entered your country before being able to re-route the shipment.
If you place a chargeback with your credit card company (on purpose or by mistake) for any order that you placed and received, there will be a $35.00 research fee charged to your account upon receiving the chargeback by our merchant provider to cover our investigative expenses to prove that you did make the purchase.
Shopahoo does not tolerate credit card fraud, and all fraud, without exception, will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In addition, we will pursue civil legal action seeking any loss of income related to the fraud, including business, legal fees, research costs, employee downtime and loss of revenues.
Shopahoo considers credit card chargebacks to be fraud if you have made no reasonable effort to work with us to resolve any problems with your purchase. All frivolous chargebacks not only cost our employees time away from our usual and customary matters of conducting normal business but cost us money, therefore:
You agree that if you, the buyer, choose to do business with Shopahoo, and you file a chargeback with your credit card company, and you do not win the chargeback argument, you agree to pay us $35 for our time responding to the matter. You, the buyer authorize us to charge this amount to your credit card. If this charge is rejected, Shopahoo will pursue legal action to recoup losses for our time associated with responding to the chargeback in addition to any other fees explained above. You agree to reimburse us or any representative we may appoint for any legal expenses your actions may make us incur. We take fraud seriously. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The waiver of a breach hereunder does not waive any other or subsequent breach.
In the event that you win the chargeback with your credit card company, and have not returned our goods, Shopahoo will attempt to recover fraudulently disputed charges plus additional costs via a third-party collection agency and your account will be reported to all credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account. This may severely damage your credit rating for at least the next seven (7) years. At this point, we will no longer accept a return of the merchandise as settlement for the debt and will only accept payment in full. In addition to this, Shopahoo will file a report with your local police or sheriffs department, and file a mail fraud complaint with the United States Postal Inspection Service.
