For more information about shipping and delivery, please see our Shipping FAQs below:
- Why was my package undeliverable?
Here are some reasons why your package may be determined undeliverable by Our Shipping Partners:
In case of International and domestic shipping the shipping company will attempt delivery 3 times at the delivery address specified by you in the order, before they contact us that your package is not deliverable. If you have not received the package, you can track the package through the Order Tracking facility. If the package status is shown as undeliverable please call the shipping company at their local number and quote your tracking number to trace your package.
Incorrect Address: ArtsOfIndia does not take responsibility if the delivery address provided by you is incorrect or outdated. If a package is returned to us because the address is incorrect or outdated we will consider the order status as closes, and no refund will be issued. Please carefully check to make sure that you have supplied a current and correct shipping address.
Failed Delivery Attempts: In case of International and domestic deliveries the shipping company will make three attempts to deliver your package. In case of International deliveries for orders over $400 our shipping Partners generally requires a signature. For orders less than $400 it is the discretion of our shipping partners' driver if a signature is required. If any duties or taxes are due, then the shipping company will require payment at the time of delivery. If you are generally not home during delivery hours, please use a shipping address where someone will be available to sign for the package. If the driver deems it necessary to obtain a signature and has made three delivery attempts, then the package is returned to us as undeliverable. If the package status is shown as undeliverable please call the shipping company's customer service at their local number and quote your tracking number to trace your package.
Refused by Recipient: If you are sending a gift to someone and they refuse to accept the package because they think it is being sent to them in error, then the package will be returned to us as undeliverable. By informing your gift recipient that they should expect a package you will help us ensure that they receive your gift.
- Can I change my shipping address after placing my order?
If you would like to change your shipping address for an order which you have already placed, we will try to accommodate your requests if we still have the package in our possession. Please contact us (support@ArtsOfIndia.net) with your requested change and we will send you an email reply to confirm if we were able to make the change. If we have already handed your order over to the shipping company then we are unable to make any shipping address changes. Please note that we will not be able to change the address of an order placed for India delivery to International delivery or visa versa since the pricing for India and international deliveries is different from each other.
- How do I track my order?
You can track your order on our Order Tracking page. If you do not have a tracking number or delivery confirmation number, please contact us. If you are not sure whether or not your order has shipped yet, you can check the status of your recent orders in My AccountOnce we receive your order, we take approximately 5 working days to process your order before handing it over to the shipping company.
- Will I be charged for customs charges in case of international shipping?
All of ArtsOfIndia orders are shipped internationally from India to your provided shipping address via our different shipping partners. Due to the nature of international shipping, occasionally a customer may have to pay additional import duties and taxes which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. The large majority of orders will not have to pay any additional fees. However, we are unable to calculate when and how much these infrequent customs duty charges will be levied. In the case where additional customs charges are assessed, you will be responsible for paying these additional fees. To make your shopping experience as seamless as possible, we have arranged with shipping partners to customs clear your goods for you and deliver them to your doorstep. If you are presented with an invoice from shipping partners for import duties and taxes, you will have to pay shipping partners directly at the time of delivery.
- What are the shipping costs?
We offer Free Shipping on all orders US $199 and above. For orders less than US $199, shipping rate may vary depending upon the weight and destination.
i.e deliveries within India, we offer Free Shipping on all orders above Rs.9999. For orders less than Rs.9999, shipping rate may vary depending upon the weight.
- Can my order ship to a Post Office Box?
No. Since we offer door to door deliveries through our shipping partners therefore you must include full address details including a street address for the shipping address. All ArtsOfIndia orders are shipped door to door, via our Shipping Partners internationally, and via a number of shipping companies within India, to your provided shipping address.
- Can I ship different items in my order to different shipping addresses?
No, as of now. We can only process one shipping address per order. So, if you would like to order several items and ship to different people, please treat these as separate orders.
- Will everything ship together?
Yes. Because we do not process backorders, whatever is in stock will be shipped together.
- Do you ship backorders?
