COVID-19 UPDATE

DHL has been experiencing major shipping delays due to the dynamic nature of the pandemic, especially for international orders. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we manage orders and get your books to you as soon as possible.

International Customs or Duties Costs 

Depending on the country of delivery, your shipment may be subject to customs clearance. Fees are determined by the customs agency within the destination country. Although charges are not always incurred, assessment of duties and taxes will be based on the value of the order. 

Payment of fees is the responsibility of the customer. If your order is subject to customs clearance and needs to be picked up, a notice will be left at your door regarding your package. 

It is the responsibility of the customer to understand how this process works in your area before placing an order. More information can be obtained by contacting your local customs office.

 

Incorrect Address Updates

If your shipment is marked as delivered, but you did not receive your order, we recommend double checking both your shipping address and other secured locations in or around your property, such as a main office, front desk, or any side or back doors. Sometimes drivers leave packages in less obvious areas for security. If your order’s tracking is showing delivered, but you are still unable to locate your shipment, please contact us. 

We ask that you notify us as soon as you realize there’s a mistake in your delivery address. Please email hello@akidsbookabout.com with your order number and updated shipping address. 

We are unable to edit, cancel, refund, or reship any orders once they have been shipped to an incorrect address. We recommend reaching out to your local post office to forward the shipment to your correct address.

Please note that our business hours are 8:00 AM PST - 5:00 PM PST Mondays through Fridays. If you email outside of our business hours, there is a chance your order will already have shipped by the time we are able to change your address.

We reserve the right to investigate all missing or lost packages, and receive the results of the investigation before proceeding with a resolution. Repeated claims of non-receipt can lead to the cancellation of your order.
