1. When will my order arrive?
AZ World Store partners with global merchants and artisans in order to provide you the best prices and the most interesting products. This means that your order is shipped from global areas such as Thailand, Tibet, China, India, etc. via our partnership with USPS.
Because we ship directly from our partners in these countries, your item may take 3-5 weeks to arrive since it's shipped. We are not responsible for delays caused by the customs department in your country.
Please do not panic if it does not show up immediately, it's on its way (please email us for tracking) :)
We offer international shipping options too - no matter where you are, you can buy from us!
2. When will my order be processed?
All orders are handled and shipped out from our warehouse locations in the US, UK or China. Please allow extra time for your order to be processed during holidays and sale seasons.
We process orders between Monday and Friday. Orders will be processed within 3 business days from the order date and shipped the next day after the processing day. Please note that we don't ship on weekends.
Please contact us if you do not receive a confirmation email after 5 business days from the day you completed your payment.
3. Will I be charged with customs and taxes?
The prices displayed on our site are tax-free in US Dollars, which means you may be liable to pay for duties and taxes once you receive your order.
Import taxes, duties and related customs fees may be charged once your order arrives to its final destination, which are determined by your local customs office.
Payment of these charges and taxes are your responsibility and will not be covered by us. We are not responsible for delays caused by the customs department in your country. For further details of charges, please contact your local customs office.
4. My order still hasn’t arrived, I think it is lost?
If you think your order has been delayed or lost in the post please contact us and we will start an investigation with the courier. Unfortunately we cannot re-send your order or refund you until the courier has concluded the investigation, we will keep you informed and will be in touch once the investigation has finished.
5. The tracking number for my order stopped updating, what happened?
If you're buying from outside of the U.S. (particularly in Canada), your country's customs department may decide to hold your items at the border temporarily, often without explanation! Note: Canada's customs department takes a particularly long time to resolve these holds. This is relatively rare, but if your order is held up in customs, we suggest calling your country's customs department directly and ask that they release your items immediately.
Note: if for some reason your order is never released by customs, we'll send you a replacement!
