Royal Mail delivers to the address, and not necessarily to the recipient named on shipping label.

If you choose to have your order delivered in a multiple occupation building, please note that a neighbour or receptionist is able to sign for the parcel. Royal Mail considers a parcel as delivered once a signature has been recieved from the address specified on the shipping label.

Please make sure you keep these things in mind when you order, as we cannot be held responsible for any shipment errors

 

5. Delivery signature, missed deliveries and denial of receipt

All orders over £20 require a signature upon delivery. If you miss a delivery, a card will be left in your post box and you will be given instructions to rearrange delivery or to collect from your local sorting office / depot.

If an item is returned to us due to incorrect address specified or item not called for, heySHOP will inform you via email as soon as the item is recieved back. After this, if you wish the item to be re delivered to you, please note that we reserve the right to ask for delivery fee. If you wish to cancel the order, a refund will be issued to your bank / PayPal account, but we reserve the right to deduct our shipping fees from the refund total.

In case of a signed for parcel and delivery confirmation available on the courier's website, the customer denies receiving the parcel, this is called "Denial of Receipt". If this occurs, we will contact Royal Mail to confirm delivery details, and Royal Mail will contact the customer and ask for written documentation to confirm that the parcel has not been recieved. Please note, these circumstances are mediated by the delivery company and we cannot take any action until Royal Mail confirms wether or not the parcel has been recieved by the recipient.

Please inspect your package upon delivery to ensure that it hasn't been tampered with in an way. If the package does appear to have been opened or tampered with, you should refuse delivery.

In very rare cases, your order may arrive later than the estimated timescale. This can be due to peak times or other reasons from delivery company. It is beyond our control and we apologise for any incovenience.
