Please note that once an order has been started in the fulfillment process we can only request a cancellation, however, cancellation is not guaranteed.
If your order has already shipped, we will attempt to contact the courier to process a reroute; a reroute often leads to a fee from the courier which will be charged to you.
If we are unable to process a reroute or cancel the order, most of the time, orders delivered to the wrong location are returned to our warehouse.The return shipping process may take a while, especially for international orders. Once the order has been returned and processed, you will be notified by email and given the option to pay to have the order reshipped to the correct address or, if you decide you don't want the order reshipped, we can issue a refund for the cost of the products, but cannot refund the shipping fees.
