If the shipping address does not match your identification, please contact us to verify your address through the means of emailing us alternative proof of address.

       4. Regular mail is a non-tracked but very discreet shipping option available for all Canadian, US, and international orders. Keep in mind that this will void our reshipping policy.  

In most cases, with tracked shipping, we can offer re-shipping/store credit; but NOT with regular letter mail.  For more information, please see our Shipping Policy
