DAMAGES - "My jewelry arrived smashed"
Gutsy Goodness is not liable for any products damaged or lost during shipping but we will do our best to help you receive exactly what you have ordered in a timely fashion.
If you received your order and it is less than perfect, we may ask you to take photos of the damaged shipping package in order for us to assist in filing a claim to the carrier. Please save all packaging materials and damaged goods.
WHERE IS MY ORDER? - "How do I track it? What if it says delivered and I don't have it?"
If your tracking information is marked as "delivered" and you have not received your package we recommend the following steps:
Wait until the next day. Oftentimes the USPS marks it delivered and it is still on the truck.
Check with the people in your household
Check around a screen door, behind shrubs
If you are friendly with the neighbors ask if they got it by mistake.
If your package is delayed or tracking information has not been updated for 5-7 days
If your package is delayed and the tracking information says “IN TRANSIT, ARRIVING LATE” your package is not considered lost, but just delayed. We recommend putting in the Tracking # and then signing up for alerts such as SMS updates when the package "moves." For some reason this has been known to get packages moving.
Let us know what's going on. We reserve the right to choose to send a replacement or not, depending on what the USPS updates say. Oftentimes during holiday season sending a second package only clogs up the backlog of mail more—it doesn’t arrive any sooner. That said, if this is absolutely needed by a certain date (such as a wedding) you have much less expensive options with 3-day UPS then if you wait until the last minute to re-order.
If we opt to send a second shipment the customer will be responsible for returning the first shipment when it arrives. You may wish to add a faster delivery method on your second package, depending on your timeline.
Please double check your address is correct to ensure the fastest delivery.
Regarding refunds, if your package is delayed more than 24 days due to postal setbacks, please feel free to communicate with us and we will do our best to help in any way we can.
We do not provide refunds when a package is delayed and the USPS Trackinginformationsays “In Transit, Arriving Late” other messages, or even no tracking information for up to 2 weeks. This is all normal for the USPS. Rather, we may opt to provide you with a Gutsy Goodness shop credit for you to order a replacement item.
