Shipping & Payment Terms
For any questions or comments our email is email@example.com. Please read completely for important details on expected shipping and delivery times.
Order Cancellation policy - Important
- As most of our items are produced on demand at 3rd party factories and our intention to deliver orders as quickly as possible we have a 6 hour waiting period prior to most items being pushed into production. After 6 hours has passed from the time an order is replaced while we can try to cancel your order if you change your mind or update your address if you've made a mistake we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so. Please message us immediately via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will process your request as soon as possible and let you know if we were able to update your order accordingly.
- Please note emails over night and on the weekends may not be seen until the next business day.
- DragQueenMerch.Com is not responsible to reship or replace an order at no charge if incorrect address has been provided.
Key Shipping details
- Please note most items ship separately and in many cases orders with multiple items ship from multiple 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 custom made and produced at time of order. Please note average ship time for the majority of our items is 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.
Please note, with any items shipping from the U.K. to the US there will be a lag between receiving the tracking information being sent and the customer seeing actual movement from the US Postal Service.
The way we are able to deliver quickly from the UK and keep shipping costs down is that the UK factory prepares USPS shipping labels as the items are produced and then ships over a large batch of orders via Fedex daily to a US facility where they get handed off to the US Postal Service. There is typically a 5 business day "In Pre-Shipment" lag between the tracking being issued and movement on the package actually showing so don’t be concerned if you don’t see anything happening.
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 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. There are times the package just goes missing when rejected for a wrong address and DragQueenMerch.com is not responsible to replace these packages. Payment for re-ship needs to be submitted via PayPal to email@example.com and amount will be confirmed via email.
- 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 to customer error DragQueenMerch.com is not responsible to replace for free or offer a refund.
For our non-clothing items, phone cases, sneakers, etc, production and shipping is from China. Typical delivery on accessory items from China runs 2-3 weeks with the exception of the sneakers which can take 3 - 4 weeks.
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.

United States Shipping & 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 but are not processed or shipped on weekends or holidays. If you still think your order is missing in action, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Why doesn't the shippers web site recognize the tracking number for an order I placed?
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 updates will not show up. This is out of our control.
On international shipments we typically lose visibility of the tracking once an item makes it through your local customs office. For Canada specifically when a package makes it to Canada there are no tracking updates offered by the Canadian postal system.
For items shipping from China its commonplace for you to see initial tracking details and then your package 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 email@example.com and we will reply as fast as possible.
