I placed an order, but never received a confirmation email.

How do I change or cancel my order?
We’re super quick at processing orders to make sure that you receive them as soon as possible. You can change your order as much as you like before you click “Checkout” but after this point you will be unable to make changes to your order. Keep in mind our system is designed to fulfill orders as quickly as possible. We cannot cancel or change an order once it has been placed. In such case you can however, return the item to us in accordance with our Returns Policy. If we sent out your package and your items are returned to us (Packages marked “Return to Sender”) due to an incorrect/undeliverable address, we will issue a store credit for the net total minus the shipping fee. You will be held responsible for the initial cost of shipping the package.

The customer is responsible for the charges, even if the shipment is refused upon delivery. If the package is returned to our warehouse, there will be a bounce back fee.
My order was confirmed, but I just got an email saying an item is out of stock. What does this mean?
Between the time you placed the order and when we processed it, the item was no longer available. We will send you an email with an E-gift card containing the amount you are owed for the cost of the item. Please treat the gift card like cash, as it is store credit you can use during a later purchase. Store credit never expires.
I placed an order, but haven’t seen any movement from Shamara Elle. What’s going on?
There are several reasons why your order may have been delayed. Either your order was flagged for risk of fraud, or we needed to contact you to verify your personal information.

My tracking info shows my package was delivered, but I never received it.
Shamara Elle provides customers with the option to track packages. If the tracking information states that your items have been delivered but you have not received it, you must contact the United States Postal Service and discuss the issue with them. Reach USPS HERE or call 1 (800) 222-1811 for domestic or international assistance. Please check around your neighborhood in case another home received it by mistake. Speak with family, roommates, etc. in case they received it on your behalf. The package may also have been left with property managers. We will do our best to assist you, but Fashion Nova does not hold responsibility for packages that are lost or stolen. Please contact your local mail carrier and post office to file a claim.
I am in the United States and want to return an item I am not satisfied with.
If you are not happy with your purchase, please send it back to our Los Angeles warehouse within 5 days of the delivery date with a return slip. Merchandise must be unworn, unwashed, and still have all tags attached. If returning by mail, we suggest using USPS flat rate shipping for convenience. You will be responsible for covering shipping costs to return items and shipping charges must be prepaid. We would be happy to issue you a refund in the form of store credit to use on a future purchase. Store credit never expires. Sale items, accessories, and infant items cannot be returned unless approved by customer service in advance. There will be a 50% restocking fee taken out of your credit.
