Shipping Timelines for Domestic Orders
At this time all carriers may operate with an expected delay of an additional 1-2 days on top of already defined transit times due to the holiday volume. We cannot be held responsible for carrier delays. We apologize for the inconvenience! 

Shipping Timelines for International Orders
International orders are going to take a little longer to get to you. All International Carriers may experience a general slowdown across the board regarding both shipping and tracking information, though the majority of packages are being delivered on schedule. Please allow 72 hours after fulfillment for tracking information for international packages to display properly. WNRS is not responsible for carrier delays. We’re so sorry for the inconvenience.

When will I receive my order?
Once your package has left our warehouse, your tracking information will be emailed to you. Make sure to check it daily.
All orders can experience holiday volume shipping delays. If you purchased internationally and your order status hasn’t changed in 30 days from the last tracking update we will consider the package lost. If you have further questions, or if you would like to cancel your order, please email customercare@notreallystrangers.com. WNRS is not responsible for carrier delays. We apologize for the inconvenience! 

My tracking information says that my package was delivered but I have not received it. Now what?
That’s okay! We’ll figure this out, however, please allow 48 hours before you reach out to customercare@notreallystrangers.com for help.

It's been 48 hours! Help!
Please reach out to customercare@notreallystrangers.com, our team will guide you on next steps for the claim process.

Can I change or cancel my order?
This one’s tough. If you received an email saying that your order shipped, then we cannot cancel your order. It means it has already left our warehouse and it is in the good graces of the carriers. If it has not shipped, and you wish to change or cancel an order after you’ve submitted it, please email our Community Experience team at customercare@notreallystrangers.com.

Do you ship internationally?
Of course! The only countries we DO NOT ship to at this time are the following:

Bhutan, Bangladesh, Brazil, China (Inner Mongolia), India, Iraq, Laos, Mongolia, Nepal, Burundi, Cape Verde, Chad, Congo - Brazzaville, Congo - Kinshasa, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gambia, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, Uganda, Ukraine, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribatia, Norfolk Island, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, Wallis & Futuna, Russia, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey

The cost of shipping goes towards shipping the item only and not towards any additional customs fees and/or taxes that may be charged for international delivery. The customer is liable for any additional customs fees and taxes necessary to receive the package.

We understand that our international rates are high. We promise that we are working on improving this for you while making sure to provide you with the quality you deserve. We always want to ensure your order gets to your country safe and sound.

How much will customs/import taxes be on my order? 
Unfortunately, since this is not a fee from We’re Not Really Strangers, we do not have this information as all countries are different. 

ROUTE

What is Route? 
Route automatically connects to everything you’ve ordered from all your favorite retailers while allowing you to visually track your packages, anytime, anywhere. Add Route Package Protection at checkout and unlock full package protection and seamless resolution for order issues. 

Download the Route app for iOS on the Apple App Store. 

Download the Route app for Android on the Google Play Store.

Why would I need Route protection?
Route offers you "peace of mind" package protection for all of your orders at an affordable price. The cost to you is only around 1.5% of the cart value to fully protect your package in the event that it is lost, damaged, or stolen. For more questions about Route, please see: Customer FAQ link

My order was stolen! What do I do?
Oh no! We’re so sorry this happened. Unfortunately, there isn’t much we can do on our end once the carrier delivers the box. We’d recommend taking a claim up with the delivery service to see if they will reimburse you.

Let’s just hope that whoever stole your package is able to use what’s inside to do some self-reflecting.

What is Green Package Protection/Carbon Neutral Shipping?
Route is covering the cost to neutralize emissions when you add “Green Package Protection” at checkout. Green Package Protection shipping includes package protections at the same cost as before, with additional benefit that your shipment is carbon neutral. By adding Green Package Protection to your cart, you’re automatically taking instant climate action – no donation required.

How does it work?
Route has partnered with Patch, a carbon credit marketplace, to facilitate the purchase of carbon credits to neutralize your emission.

HOLD AT LOCAL POST: 
Occasionally an international or domestic order will be held at your local post office. Reasons for the order being held can be a customs fee (international orders) or the package was not able to be delivered in your mailbox. 

RETURNS/EXCHANGE/ORDER ISSUES

If your order is damaged, missing items, wrong or needs an exchange please contact our customer care dept within 14 business from delivery date

What is the return/exchange policy?
All sales are final, but we can offer an exchange. You qualify for an exchange if your un-worn apparel item doesn’t fit, or you accidentally purchased the wrong item. Returned items must have tags still on and be returned in original product packaging. Returned items must have no visible signs of wear or use. We do not accept exchanges after 30 days of your delivery date.

To initiate an exchange, please complete the following steps:

  1. Please email our team at customercare@notreallystrangers.com to let us know you would like to initiate an exchange. We will help you through this process.
  2. We will need the info about your original item and what you would like to exchange it for. Your new item will not be shipped to you until you provide us with the return tracking information. Please note we do not offer return shipping labels and this cost will be on you. Exchanges can take up to 5-7 business days, once we receive your old item. If your desired item is out of stock, then you can exchange it for an item of equal value.
  3. Please ship the item back to us at the address below:
We're Not Really Strangers
3755 E Post Rd Suite 100
Las Vegas, NV 89120

    I got the wrong order/my order is damaged! What now?
    Mistakes happen. If the item is damaged, or the incorrect item was received, please email us within seven (7) days of the date your order is received at
    customercare@notreallystrangers.com.

    Provide your name, order number, description of the issue and please attach a photograph of the incorrect or damaged item received. We will make sure the right order gets to you. Thank you for being patient with us!

    DAILY TEXT REMINDERS

    How do I sign up for daily texts?
    Text the first letter of your first love’s name to 323-210-3807 (US and Canada Only) 
    *$1.99 monthly charge applies.*

    If you are having any issues please email help@community.com the following:

    1. Confirm you’ve input all your info
    2. Your USA phone number*
    3. A screenshot of what happens when you text the number
    Please note that this is a service run by one of our partners. Our team may not be able to help you troubleshoot the issue. 

     
    *The app only works with USA domestic numbers. We hope it will expand globally soon! If you don't live in the USA, you can add us on social @werenotreallystrangers or sign up for our email newsletter for daily reminders.

    Why won't you text me back?
    We hate one-sided relationships too, but these texts aren’t meant to be a conversation. They’re more reminders and affirmations to get you through your day (and occasionally call you out!)

    What does waitlist mean?
    The item you wanted is out of stock and you added yourself to our waitlist. A waitlist does not mean that the item will come back in stock and arrive on your doorstep. If the decision is made to bring this item back in stock, then you will be the first to know via email. If you do not receive an email, it just means we are still deciding whether we want to bring this item back. We are always thinking of new ideas, so if it’s not this product, then we hope you’ll like the next one!

    Do you have a discount code?
    Not right now, but if you sign up for our email newsletter you’ll be the first to know. We like to drop occasional surprises in your inbox.

    • Promo codes cannot be applied to previously placed orders.
