If 7 business days have passed and you still have not received your refund, you may need to contact your bank. 

I received an email saying that my order was flagged as medium/high risk. What happens now?

Any orders that come in as medium or high risk fraudulent will need to be verified before being shipped or canceled. 

This is done to ensure the cardholder and merchant's safety and to minimize the chance of bank charge backs from cardholders who have been victim of fraud.

Why is my order showing as Medium or High Risk?

Your order may be Medium or High risk if it meets any of the following criteria below:

  1. Multiple failed payment attempts were made to place the order (raises concern of stolen cards being used)
  2. CVV is incorrect
  3. IP Address where order was placed is nowhere near the ultimate shipping destination (example, order placed from China but being shipped to UK, this is cause for concern and raises red flag of possible credit card fraud).
  4. Billing and Shipping Address are not an exact match

What can I do to make sure my order does not fall into Medium/High risk? 

When you place an order, make sure it does not meet any of the criteria above that may make it susceptible to fraud.

Make sure billing and shipping addresses match and that location of order is in the vicinity of final shipping destination.

If you have recently moved, you may need to contact your bank to update them with your new residence address. 

International Shipping

All International orders are shipped via DHL only. This is to ensure that your package gets to you safely and securely. Shipping Rates range from $27 and up depending on the weight and destination of your package. You may check your shipping rate on the checkout page. Please allow 2-3 business days to receive your order.

Please be sure you are home to sign for the package. DHL will attempt to deliver a package more than once but eventually it will be sent back to us if you are not available to sign. There will then be a new charge to re-ship it back to you. 

We are not responsible for any "lost" or "stolen" packages through the post office. We strongly advise to pay ($1-2) to insure your package in the event that it does come up missing. 

You can file a claim with route, just follow the steps in your email or on this link: https://help.route.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020319513-How-to-report-an-issue
