(We can only hold the order up to 7 days, after if there is no response, a cancellation will be issued.)
    • We do not ship to APO (Army Post Office) as well as FPO (Fleet Post Office). 
    • The only way to send an item to an APO, FPO or DPO address is to use a Freight Forwarder, or to ship to a U.S address friend/family thereafter, they will ship it to you international.

If an incorrect or incomplete address is entered, OPT7 Lighting cannot be responsible for replacing the product. The purchaser is also responsible for making sure that the shipping address entered is a secure address. We cannot cover the cost of lost or stolen packages, nor can we interact with the shipping company to locate your lost package, if the tracking information says it was delivered or is in route to the shipping address. If the shipping company shows the packaged as having been delivered, then we will assume that it was delivered and that something must have happened to the package at its destination. The next step is to file a UPS or USPS Claim. 
  • If a package comes back to us as "undeliverable" or as "insufficient" or "wrong address," the purchaser will be charged for shipping the package to its proper destination (even if the order originally warranted free or reduced shipping). Or, if the purchaser prefers, OPT7 Lighting can issue a refund for that purchase, minus the initial cost of our shipping the goods to you. Note we cannot be held responsible for delays in shipping due to weather or acts beyond our control.

    • Freight Forwarder: Using a freight forwarder to ship or hand-carrying items internationally may result in complications not covered by OPT7. This means that OPT7 isn't able to provide a replacement or a refund for any shipment taken outside of the U.S. by hand-carrying or using a freight forwarding service.  
      • You or the designated freight forwarder are solely responsible for compliance with all export and import regulations, including all U.S. export regulations and the import regulations of the destination country. OPT7 must not be listed on any export documentation (e.g., export declarations, invoices, packing lists, air waybills, etc.). It is your responsibility to ensure the freight forwarder's most up-to-date U.S. address is used.
      • If you refuse the package or if it is returned to us for any reason, we will credit you for the amount of the merchandise if and when the merchandise is recovered by us.

It is your responsibility to be aware of customs procedures and any restrictions which may apply to receive goods in your country.
      • If your country's customs rejects your shipment, or your package is deemed as undeliverable by the shipping company for any reason, you are responsible for your shipping charges plus any other fees that may apply. If you feel the error is due to a mistake on the part of the shipping company, you will have to speak with them directly about getting your fees refunded. OPT7 is only responsible for the shipping address to the Freight Forwarding company per the order you enter.

Canceling your order  

  • We usually ship out orders within 24 business hours. If you want to cancel your order, it must be done within that time frame. However, we cannot guarantee that a cancellation will be possible due to our automated fulfillment system. Once your order is dispatched to our warehouse for packing, or if it has shipped, it can no longer be cancelled. If you wish to return your order thereafter you will be assigned to the return cost due to "no longer need" and additional shipping charges will not be credited. 
  • If you refused your order due to "no longer need", the tracking number must show that it has been "RETURN TO SENDER" for a refund to be issued. We recommend receiving a note from USPS or UPS document to ensure you have refused the package for a refund, otherwise, the tracking is the only way we will know it is one the way back to us for a refund which may cause some delays. 
  • Once your order has shipped, it cannot be cancelled or refunded until it is returned to OPT7.
    • Depending on the status of your order, we may not be able to cancel it. Please contact us immediately. We will help you the best we can. If we are unable to cancel your order, we can always walk you through our easy returns process.
    • Request to cancel, but already shipped: In these cases, we are unable to stop the package once it is in transit. We will have to wait for the order to arrive to you and process a return. To walk you through the process, we will provide you with the tracking number (so you know its on the way) and provide return instructions of the item(s) to be returned for a refund in cases that you reached out to us and we were unable to cancel per request. 
  • If we are unable to cancel the order and it arrives to you - we will need to set up an RMA number for your order to be returned for a refund. Please contact our Support Team to request an RMA number or using our self-service RMA Request System 

FAQ: 

1.) My tracking says delivered, but I never got my order (DOMESTIC ORDERS):

  • If you receive this notice but the package is not in your mailbox, in your apartment office, or on the doorstep, here are some things to know: USPS delivery vans have GPS that sometimes automatically updates a shipment as "delivered" prematurely. Wait another business day because the package was most likely marked as delivered accidentally, and will arrive the following day

    • Contact your local post office. Make sure to call your LOCAL OFFICE, and NOT the USPS HOTLINE (this can take a lot of time, and they only tell you what the tracking already says). Ask them who delivered the parcel, and ask them details about that day's delivery. They are used to these types of questions, and can usually provide helpful information.
    • If the parcel does not show up (extremely rare occasion), please call the Post Office and file a claim. OPT7 cannot reimburse orders that were mis-delivered by the post office or stolen from a property, thank you for understanding! 
    • If your package was stolen and a USPS Claim was completed, please email us and we'll try our best to provide other options to assist you. 

2.) I receive an email saying it was shipped, but there wasn't a tracking number:

  • If you've received this, it means your order has been shipped by our Amazon Fulfilment Center and is currently in the tracking process in which we are waiting for Amazon to provide the tracking # to us. A tracking will be added to your order details in 1-2 business days to your order/ account after you've received the email. We recommend signing up for an OPT7 account so that you can check the tracking at your convenience; if not, we can always help check for you also. 
    • If you need an ORDER UPDATE [click here] & select Shipping Support on the drop down.

3.) Why is my order being split and sent in two shipments?

  • Due to the amount of high volume orders, some orders will ship from our Fremont, California warehouse and the others will ship from our Amazon warehouse. Shipments from Amazon warehouse generally make it to your house in 4-7 days. You will also receive two emails each with a tracking number once your order has been shipped. 

4.)  I got my package, but I received the wrong item/ size: 

  • We have systems in place to make sure you get the proper item and the correct size, but we are humans and mistakes can happen. If you received the wrong item or the wrong size, please send detailed photos of the unused items and a brief explanation to support@opt-7.com within 7 days of receiving your item(s). We will be able to look into the issue right away! If you fail to provide us with prompt notification, we will not authorize your return or exchange. 

5.) My item(s) is damaged/ defective: 

  • If you feel that the product you received is defective or damaged, send detailed photos of the unused item and a brief explanation of the defect to support@opt-7.com within 7 days of when you receive the product(s). We will be able to look into the issue right away! If you fail to provide us with prompt notification, we will not authorize your return or exchange.
