Frequently Asked Question
What is a Buyer Protection?
Buyer Protection is a set of guarantees that enables buyers to shop with confidence on our website.
You are protected when:
- The item you ordered did not arrive within the time promised by the seller.
- The item you received was not as described.
- The item you received that was assured to be genuine was fake.
How are shipping costs calculated?
Shipping costs are calculated based on the shipping method (air, sea or land) and product weight/volume. Different shipping companies have different rates, so it’s best to check and compare which is most affordable and economical. For more details on how shipping costs are calculated, please contact us directly.
What are the Payment Methods available?
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, Diner's Club, Shopify Pay, Google Pay, Apple Pay, PayPal, and Stripe are all the Payment Methods accepted by cooledtured.
Are my Payment Information Secure?
Yes, all payments are 100% secure. We are consumers and buyers ourselves thus we understand the fears of online fraud and credit card scams. Our payment methods are 100% secure - we use Stripe and PayPal's secure payment gateway and support all major credit card companies through PayPal and Stripe. This is to ensure our customers get their consumer protection and also our business is validated.
How long does shipping take?
Please allow 2 to 5 business days to process your order and an additional 3 to 7 business days depending on your location.
I only received half of my order. Where is the rest of it?
Sometimes we have to send orders in multiple packages due to product backorder. You may encounter this if your order consisted of one of our more popular products. Please do not worry though, everything you ordered will be sent to you. In the case of multiple packages being sent, we will always provide tracking #'s for each shipment.
I got a tracking number but I can't track it.
For international buyers, sometimes tracking or "detailed tracking" will not become available until the package arrives at its destination country. If your item consists of an item that is being sent from an overseas warehouse location, it may take 3-7 days before "detailed tracking becomes enabled". This is due to the package having to go through customs and crossing the sea, which is always the longest part of delivery. Once the item arrives in the destination country, delivery is usually VERY quick. The whole process generally takes about 10-30 days, depending on where your order is being sent.
I need an item sent before "X" date as a B-day/Holiday gift..
We do not recommend ordering package gifts unless you order at least 45 days in advance. Most packages arrive 10-30 business days, but this is just an estimate and not guaranteed. If you are worried that your item will not be delivered before your predetermined deadline we simply recommend that you do not place an order.
How long will it take until I get a tracking number emailed to me?
Tracking numbers are sent in the same order it was received, and the email date is not always a reflection of when the item was sent out. If you haven't received an email confirmation with a tracking number yet, you should receive one very soon.
Why are your toys still on pre-orders while others have them in stock?
Big retail companies place their pre-orders ahead of smaller businesses like cooledtured, this also means they get their stock ahead of us.
Why does my estimated delivery date keep on changing?
We cannot control the manufacturer's output and delivery of their products. We change our dates when the manufacturer informs us of delays in the order.
Please check the Shipping Delays and Updates page for more information.
The tag on the clothing is not the same size that I ordered.
Please read our clothing size page carefully if you are interested in ordering any clothing.
