COMMONLY ASKSED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG WILL SHIPPING TAKE?
We get asked this a lot so let me explain our shipping process to you :
1) When you order and pay for an item you will get a confirmation email from us along with an ORDER NUMBER specific to your purchase . Then your order goes off to be processed. This usually takes no longer than 48 Hours
2) Once we process your order, it gets sent to our fulfilment center. We operate in North Carolina but have respected relationships with numerous vendors in the USA and overseas locations.
3) Your order will be fulfilled, shipped, THEN you will be sent a shipping email that lets you know your order is on its way.
SOME EXCLUSIONS: (These type of orders will take longer and estimated delivery time will be noted on the items description on our website)
Most items do ship within 5 business days direct to you.
I know many of you are used to ordering online from places such as Amazon, eBay, etc and getting your items within 1-2 days, but this is not how we operate. Amazon has invested millions of dollars into warehouses across the US to fulfill orders for their customers. Port City Jewelers is still a small business. Most items on Port City Jewelers are supplied at a much lower cost to the customer and in order to be able to do this, we have to source them from our vendors allowing us to carry a limited stock of inventory. This in turn allows Port City Jewelers to offer the best pricing to our customers!!
Your items will always arrive, they’ll just take a little bit longer to arrive.
WILL I RECEIVE A TRACKING NUMBER?
Tracking numbers are always available. Most all orders will be tracked by the respective shipping company (USPS, UPS, FedEx, Etc Etc). However please know that in some locations tracking is not updated always on time.
Orders that require items to be shipped from overseas will not track until the shipment is delivered to the local post office location in your country. For example, if you live in Canada the tracking number will not populate or track in Canada Posts website until the package is received by them. Some tracking numbers will not update in their system. This of course is also out of our control.
I ORDERED MULTIPLE ITEMS, AND I HAVE ONLY RECEIVED ONE ITEM, WHY IS THAT?
If you place an order with us for multiple items it is more than likely going to be shipped in more than one package. Please allow some time for all of your items to arrive. They may have come from different vendors which means different shipments. You can track all your shipments in your Port City Jewelers account.
I PLACED AN ORDER BUT I DIDN'T RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL ... WHAT'S GOING ON?
Please make sure your email is correct when you place an order. Kindly check your SPAM folder to see if your confirmation email was sent there.
If you would like your order confirmation email, or your shipping email re-sent, just email us with a request here : firstname.lastname@example.org
I HAVE A QUESTION ON MY ORDER OR ON YOUR STORE THAT IS NOT ANSWERED HERE. HOW DO I GET A HOLD OF YOU?
