If you placed an order with an incorrect shipping address, first check that your order hasn’t shipped yet:

  1. On, click the Your Account icon.
  2. Click Purchases and reviews.
  3. To the right of your order, you’ll see either Shipped or Not Shipped:

My order is Not Shipped yet

If your item is Not Shipped yet, you can contact the shop to update your address on the order or cancel your order. You can then re-order the items with the correct shipping address.

My order was already Shipped

If your item is Shipped, check the seller’s policies to see if they are able to offer a replacement or refund. Each seller has their own policies that are on their shop homepage. Contact the shop to request a replacement or refund.

You can also contact the shipping service to see if they can reroute the order.

If your package is missing, most shipping services require that the sender open a claim. If this is the case, you may need to ask the seller to assist you.
