Backorder & Shipping Policies
We currently have increased processing times due to reduced staffing because of COVID-19. We will keep you updated as our restock orders are completed, but all shipments both domestic and global are subject to change as the pandemic changes. We caution international customers not to order if your country has closed their borders, as many packages are being returned during this time.
What Does It Mean To Backorder A Wig?
- If a wig is out of stock, the “Add to Cart” button should say “Backorder”. Payments for backorders are taken up front and place you on a priority waiting list. Backordered wigs will be shipped upon warehouse replenishment. Please allow the current processing time to pass before receiving a shipping notification.
- Out of stock wigs do not have guaranteed restock dates. Rough estimates are provided, but we cannot promise when items will replenish. For more information, please visit our restock page.
- We do not ship partial shipments. Orders with both in stock and backordered items will ship when the backordered item is restocked. In stock items are always allocated for your order. If you prefer to receive your in stock item first, please place separate orders.
- Makeup and styling accessories cannot be backordered.
When Will I Get My Package?
Orders normally process in 3-5 business days, or 7-10 business days during high volume periods. Please view the cart or site banner for current processing times. Processing time does not include weekends or holidays. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 4:30pm CST.
We pride ourselves on fast shipping, but we cannot guarantee same day shipment, even on express 1-2 day packages. Please contact us at email@example.com if your order is time-sensitive. The subject of your email should state - RUSH [your order number].
To cancel your order, please email us as SOON as possible with the subject - CANCEL [your order number]. We will do our best, but we cannot guarantee canceling your order before shipment.

InternationalSome things to keep in mind for international shipping:
- International packages will be subject to additional fees for customs/duty charges imposed and collected by your country's customs office.
- Customs fees are the responsibility of the customer and are not collected or paid in advance by Arda Wigs.
- We cannot mark packages as “gifts".
- International customers from Germany: We are not responsible for fees if a package is returned to us. Please contact your local customs office before placing an order to familiarize yourself with your local customs office's policies. If your state's customs has specific guidelines in order to process your package, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with special instructions.
Please note, UPS International packages that are refused at customs may be subject to export fees, which will be deducted from your refund after the package arrives back to our warehouse.

What If My Package Is Lost, Stolen, Or Damaged?
Shipping insurance is included on Priority and Express USPS domestic and international packages, as well as all UPS packages. Shipping insurance is not included on USPS First Class domestic or international. Please be aware that we cannot offer replacements on parcels shipped via this method. Claims for Priority and Express packages not received can be filed for USPS Priority Mail no sooner than 15 days after shipment, and no sooner than 7 days for USPS Priority Express. All claims filed through USPS must be made no later than 60 days after the package originally shipped.
If your tracking number states that your package is delivered but you have not received anything, please be sure to check your mail area (mailbox, lobby, front desk, etc), as well as with neighboring residences. If your tracking number says delivered and still nothing has turned up after 48 hours, please contact us at email@example.com and we will do our best to get the claims process underway as quickly as possible.
Claims process and investigation typically takes 2-4 weeks before a refund or replacement can be provided. Claims cannot be filed for USPS First Class.
