FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


 

ORDER INFORMATION

 

+ How do I confirm that my order has been placed?

An Order Confirmation email is sent to you when you place an order. If you have not received this email within an hour of placing your order, please check your spam/junk mailbox or contact us at info@veblenist.com.

+ What is the order processing/fulfillment time?

We handcraft made-to-order leather watch straps in small batches and ship them within 5-9 business days after receiving your order. We will send an Order Update email that contains an estimated ship date as soon as we are able to provide one (it may take a few days for us to manage production and provide an estimated ship date for your order). During high volume periods (e.g. holiday season), processing times may be longer than usual.

We appreciate your patience and understanding that handcrafted products take a little more time. Having limited inventory on hand and working on a per-order basis keeps our leather watch straps affordable for you.

Nylon NATO straps and watch boxes will be processed within 1-2 business days.

In some cases, your order may arrive in several shipments to ensure you receive our products as soon as possible. If this applies to your order, we will inform you in the Order Update email.

+ How do I know that my order has been shipped?

You will receive a Shipment Notification email containing your tracking number once your order has shipped. Shipment notification emails are typically sent out at the end of day CST.

For USPS shipments, please allow up to 24 hours for the status of your shipment to correctly display at their website.

+ How do I change or cancel an order?

If you would like to change or cancel your order, please contact us at info@veblenist.com as soon as possible.
