Article Number

000004253

Customer Information

USPS products and packages may require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 impacts.

I understand some of my mail delivery may be delayed. Why?

Postal Service Priority Mail® products and First-Class® packages may temporarily require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

When will this happen?

This change is effective April 17, 2020.

How will this affect delivery of Priority Mail?

Priority Mail’s two-day and three-day service commitments will be extended to three days and four days, respectively. Customers will continue to receive improved product tracking and as much as $50 in free insurance.

Will this affect delivery of Priority Mail Express®?

Priority Mail Express service, which guarantees overnight service, and one-day service commitments for Priority Mail will not change.
 

Will First-Class Mail be delayed too?

There is no impact to First-Class letters and flats. However, First-Class Package Service® two and three day service commitments will be extended to three and four days respectively.

– UPS Service Guarantee –

Impact of the Coronavirus on our Service Guarantee.
(as of March 26, 2020)

Within the U.S., UPS is designated among the government’s critical infrastructure and, therefore, continues to operate. The Novel Coronavirus pandemic has created unprecedented complexities, which have required us to constantly reassess our operations. Our highest priority is to help ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers.

Suspension of Service Guarantee
Effective March 26, 2020 and until further notice, we have suspended the UPS Service Guarantee for all shipments from any origin to any destination. For all U.S. origin shipments, the Service Guarantee suspension became effective as of March 24, 2020.

As the effects of the Coronavirus impact our infrastructure, we will continue to seek guidance from local, state, and national government entities to ensure that we fully align with their regulations. We are committed to continue operating globally except where constrained by government restrictions. 

Changes to Commitment Times
Commitment times for UPS Next Day Air Saver® and UPS 2nd Day Air A.M.® services scheduled for delivery on or after March 30, 2020 will be extended to end-of-day until further notice. 

Mother’s Day Changes to Commitment Times 
Due to heavy shipping volume the day before Mother’s Day, UPS is making an operational adjustment for Saturday, May 9, 2020. On that day, we will extend the delivery commitment time by 90 minutes for UPS Next Day Air® and UPS Worldwide Express® packages delivered in the U.S.

*Due to the above, the timeframes below is not currently applied.

All orders shipped via standard shipping will be shipped through the USPS or UPS. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that your order will be shipped within a certain timeframe when you choose standard ground and priority mail delivery.

Once a package has been shipped by us through the USPS or UPS, we cannot ascertain the package’s exact path of delivery. Some packages can be delayed due to certain circumstances by the USPS or UPS. We ask for your patience if this does occur.

Please note that with expedited shipping methods, Laflareusa cannot request or guarantee delivery by a specific time. Generally, the UPS will deliver your package(s) by 8PM on the estimated date of delivery. Please note that the UPS does not deliver to P.O. Boxes, and will only accept shipments to valid street addresses. Any and all package(s) that are addressed to a P.O. Box may be delayed or charged for an additional address correction fee.

SERVICEESTIMATED TIMEFRAME (NOT GUARANTEED) 
USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL7-10 Business Days (including CUSTOMS) 
USPS FIRST-CLASS PACKAGE INTERNATIONAL SERVICEVaries by Destination
UPS WORLDWIDE EXPRESS1-3 Business Days
UPS WORLDWIDE EXPEDITED2-5 Business Days

Please see the following information from USPS.com/Customer Service:

The USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL has an estimated timeframe of 7-10 business days for major cities only.

The USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL does not have a guaranteed delivery date.

The USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL is not much different from USPS FIRST CLASS PACKAGE INTERNATIONAL – as both services require some time to go through customs.

They cannot guarantee the customs timeframe as this differs from package to package, and country to country.

However, the USPS can submit an inquiry claim/investigation as to the status of the package to international country’s parcel network (international courier) – which is the only advantage to the USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL service.

Such international investigations can take up to 32 business days to complete. 

ORDER PROCESSING

Incorrect billing information and/or shipping information/address may result in shipping delays or missing packages.

Please be advised that Laflareusa is only responsible for shipping out your order(s) promptly (with the correct contents).

The shipping address is automatically printed out through the system as the exact address the customer has inputted at check-out.

This information is NOT checked or verified by personnel; and if it is incorrect, it will be returned to us by the USPS (or any other shipping company used) due to “insufficient address.”

It is up to the customer to provide and input the CORRECT COMPLETE ADDRESS in the CORRECT PLACES for the shipping/delivery address upon CHECK-OUT.

If a package is lost or returned back to us due to the customer providing a wrong address, we will NOT refund the cost of shipping.

If you want to get your order re-shipped, you will have to pay for the cost of shipping again.

If not, we will cancel and refund the order WITHOUT the shipping charge that was utilized.

Please note that this shipping charge will be the actual charge, and not the $3.99 shipping or free shipping promotion.  Even if the customer used the $3.99 or Free shipping option on their order, they will still be held responsible for the actual shipping charge, which will be removed from the total refunded.

***Please make sure to double-check your delivery address before placing your orders!*** 

Please be advised that once packages have been handed over to shipping companies (USPS, UPS, etc.), the responsibility of that package has been given over to those companies.

Laflareusa cannot ascertain the paths that these packages take, so please contact your local USPS or UPS store for more information about tracking. 

Laflareusa can only see what the customer sees, on USPS.com or UPS.com, or any other carrier websites, when tracking packages. 

RISK OF LOSS

As with any online shopping or package delivery systems – please be advised that there is always a Risk of Loss.

Risk of Loss: If your order has been marked DELIVERED by any shipping carriers, as determined on tracking websites, but you are not in possession of your order.

Please be advised that Laflareusa takes full responsibility of packing and sending out your order promptly and correctly. However, once the packages are handed over to the shipping carriers (USPS, UPS, etc.) – the carriers and the receivers are now responsible for any and all risk of loss. 

Lost or missing packages (but have been marked delivered by the carriers) must be handled by the customers. They must alert their local USPS store to inquire about the status and exact area where their shipments were dropped off.  You may use the following link to place claims for missing or lost packages (and for more information); https://www.usps.com/help/claims.htm

If a claim must be placed, please reach out to your local USPS store for assistance.

If you believe your package was stolen, you must also alert the local police for further assistance.

We urge you to constantly track your package, especially if it is “OUT FOR DELIVERY,” please be sure to be home or make other arrangements, to further decrease any chances of missing/lost/or stolen packages.

We also recommend you to contact your local USPS store, once they are in possession of your package and before it is out for delivery, to have them hold onto it or make other arrangements.

ORDER CANCELLATION AND MODIFICATION POLICY

Orders can be changed or modified but never cancelled for a “full refund”. We DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS, due to the nature of the product(s) we sell. Once the order has been placed, we will only make modifications to the order. Please refer to our Return and Exchange Policy.

You may cancel your order as long as your order hasn’t shipped from the warehouse. Once your order has been shipped, you cannot cancel your order, and it will fall under return policy.

If customer refuses package(s) or the package(s) is returned due to a failed delivery, we will cancel and refund the order WITHOUT the shipping charge that was utilized.
