Key Shipping Details
Most items ship separately from our multiple factory and warehouse locations. Shipping and handling will be applied to each item individually. Our website is programmed to offer you the most economical methods of shipping based on your combination of products ordered unless otherwise chosen.
All of our items are produced at time of order. Orders are processed and shipped out in 3–5 business days. The shoes take an average of 5–6 days to be produced and shipped, long sleeve tees with sleeve prints 5–7 business days and sublimated blankets 7–10 business days.
- Tracking activity for UK Listing Items shipping from our UK location to the US may experience a lag of updates from USPS.
- To provide low-cost, fast shipping from our UK factory, USPS shipping labels are prepared early during production, and a large batch of orders are shipped daily via Fedex to our US facility where they get handed off to USPS to complete delivery. There is typically a 5 business day "In Pre-Shipment" lag between the tracking being issued and activity on the package actually showing so don’t be concerned if you don’t see any updates.
- Once the package gets handed to the USPS it generally delivers in 2 - 3 days throughout the US.
- We do offer stock items that ship within 1 business day under our "24 hour listings" on the main menu header.
- During holiday & peak periods you should expect delays due to production schedules. We make every effort to ship as quickly as possible but during holiday times it cannot be avoided. Always check our holiday shipping schedule when ordering gifts to avoid disappointment.
- All times quoted are based on averages and approximate. We do not guarantee any delivery times.
- If orders are returned to us due to a wrong address being provided including but not limited to missing apartment #, wrong postal code, missing street #, etc the customer will need to pay for a re-shipping charge to match the costs on the original order. Typically we will not re-ship until the item makes its way back to us and this process can take up to 30 days typically. In some cases, a package may go missing when rejected for a wrong address and DragQueenMerch.com is not responsible to replace these packages. Contact Customer Service to request a re-ship, and an agent will send a re-ship payment invoice.
- Our production process is automated and if a wrong address is used on an order we will do all we can to update it once notified but cannot guarantee we will be able to make any changes. If an order is shipped to a wrong address due to customer error DragQueenMerch.com is not responsible to replace for free or offer a refund.
- Please note we cannot be responsible for customs delays.
We always do our best to get shipments delivered on time and quicker than expected, however, there are situations which are beyond our control. We are not responsible for delays due to any weather conditions, postal delays, incorrect or incomplete shipping addresses, natural disasters, or refusal to accept packages.

U.S. DOMESTIC SHIPPING:
- Our Standard Shipping carrier of our choice is the United States Postal Service (USPS) in partnership with DHL E-Commerce and typically any orders on product shipping from within the United States will arrive to the end consumer once shipped in 7-10 business days. By choosing expedited shipping you will cut off a few days from the standard rate. For orders shipping from China to the United States average delivery time is 2 – 3 weeks from date of order processing.
We ship Internationally to over a 150 countries via either the US Postal Service (USPS), DHL Express, Deutch Post, Royal Mail or the FedEx International Mail System (FIMS). All carriers deliver to your local Customs agency and will be delivered by your local postal service.
International deliveries can take up to 30 days although most are average about 2 weeks. We have no control of delivery times once orders are shipped. Delivery to Canada can average 45 days and take as long as 60 days to deliver.
Tracking for shipments to Canada from our U.S. location will stop once the shipment has arrived at Canadian customs. This out of our control and a result of Canada's local postal system processes. This issue of unavailable tracking may include other countries.
For items in UK Listings, tracking is only available when shipped to U.S. and UK from our UK location. All other orders are assigned a Royal Mail reference # but they are not trackable.
- Orders shipping to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Mexico,The Russian Federation, or Venezuela, can arrive within a month, but often take 5-8 weeks to arrive due to their extensive Customs processing

U.S ORDERS - GENERAL FAQs
Q: Do you ship to P.O. Boxes?
Q: I haven’t received my item. Who should I contact?
A: All orders are processed Monday through Friday except on weekends or holidays. If you still think your order is missing, email us at email@example.com
Q: Why is my order tracking number not recognized?
A: Your tracking number won’t be recognized until approximately 24 – 48 hours after your order has shipped. This is the time needed for their online tracking system to update. Try tracking your package again the following day and follow it to your front door! There are times during peak season especially where the postal service gets very behind in scanning packages so tracking activity will not be displayed. This is out of our control and solely based on the carrier.
For items shipping from China it is common to see initial tracking details and then your activity updates will go dark until it gets to your local customs office.
Any questions about orders or tracking you can always feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply as fast as possible.
