Indirect Signature required for all Domestic orders valued over $150?
An indirect signature will automatically be applied to order values over 150 US dollars. The purpose of the signature is to prevent any lost or stolen packages. Buyers may request to remove or waive the signature by calling Customer Service at 773-321-9430 or by signing up for UPS My Choice and changing delivery options. Due to orders being processed immediately, we recommend buyers to contact us immediately after successfully placing their order. A request can also be made during any phone order.
*Note: A buyers request to remove or waive the signature poses a risk for a package to go lost or be stolen, thus, all liabilities in a case of a lost or stolen package will be at the buyers responsibility and not of BlackHairspray.com.
What if I entered the wrong shipping address?
A: When a customer enters an incorrect address our shipping carriers (usually UPS) will charge us an $15.00 fee to locate the correct address so the package can be delivered. We will pass this charge on to the customer. This occurs very rarely and we will always attempt to contact the customer first before we ship the package if the address looks questionable.
We cannot be held responsible if you enter an incorrect shipping address such that the package is shipped to another person/address and cannot be recovered. We will have to charge you the full order price again if you want the order ship to the correct address. We cannot issue refunds for address mistakes that are out of our control.
What if my package is returned back as undeliverable?
A: If we send a package through our shipping carrier (usually UPS), and they are unable to deliver the package to you after multiple attempts, then UPS will charge us a fee (usually the cost of a typical ground shipment charge, from $5-15) to return the package to us. We will have to in turn charge that fee to the customer.
We encourage customers to always double-check their shipping address and be aware of any tracking information we send via email. All customers will be sent an email with a tracking number shortly after their product leaves our warehouse.
What if I refused my package?
A: If we send a package and arrives at your door and is refused. This instance will be treated as a "product return" and your money will be refunded for the purchase price of the order minus the original incoming and outgoing shipping charges incurred to ship your package. If you received free shipping, we will deduct the appropriate shipping charges incurred to ship your package and refund the difference.
Example:Your order total is $40 and you selected our free shipping or flat rate option. The original cost of the flat rate shipping is $7.99. If you refused your package, we will issue a refund $32.01 ($40 - $7.99). Applies all other shipping methods as well.
International Buyers - Please Note:
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Black Hairspray does not collect duties or taxes and is not responsible for these charges if your country will be charging duties and taxes to receive your order.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to placing your order. Any package refused and sent back to Black Hairspray will be issued a refund after deducting the outbound and inbound shipping costs of the package.
Please be aware that our shipping policy does change on a continuous basis and will be updated at our own discretion periodically.
