Welcome to Hello Slippers! Here are some frequently asked questions on shipping and order tracking that you might find useful.

*When you place an order with us, you will receive an email confirming your purchase and another email with the tracking ID for you to track your order in real time as it speeds through the delivery network.
How do I track my items with my country’s local delivery courier?
We provide an international tracking number and local last mile tracking number if you wish to track your item with your country’s local postal service to see estimated delivery dates once your item has arrived in your country.
Please use your last mile tracking number if you wish to track your package with your country’s local postal service (e.g., USPS, Canada Post, Australia Post) Enter your last mile tracking number in your country’s local delivery tracking service to see the status of your item. Please allow a few days for your last mile tracking number to be generated – in most cases, the last mile tracking number will start to show an estimated delivery date once your item is in transit within your country.
What happens if I don’t receive my order?
Under our Refund Policy, we will issue a refund for your item that does not arrive after 45 days (or 90 days depending on your location) from the order date. Please be assured that we will do our best to ensure that you receive your item on time, but factors outside our control (i.e., customs clearance, protests, pandemic lockdowns) may cause delays. We seek your kind understanding during this period.
Why don’t I see any tracking information?
Please give at least 3-5 days for the tracking information to be updated on the logistics side and be displayed. Do note that the tracking link provided in the email may take time to fully load as the tracking number needs to be tracked across different logistics networks for your country. If you are still not able to see any tracking information, please contact us.
Where do you ship to?
We ship to most countries worldwide including USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Australia and most of Southeast Asia.
Do I have to pay for custom fees or VAT? (only applicable for EU customers)
In view of the new EU VAT regulations that came into force on 1 July 2021, Hello Slippers will be temporarily absorbing the VAT costs for shipments to the EU while we implement new measures to collect VAT from our customers. Currently, we are paying VAT through our logistics company IOSS number and this will be displayed on incoming packages to the EU (excluding the UK). As such, customers shipping to the EU should have their packages clearing customs without the need for additional VAT payment, as we will be absorbing VAT on their behalf.
With that said, customers will still remain responsible for any additional VAT payments in the event that this is requested by the custom authorities for any reason. Please note that we may eventually decide to pass on VAT charges to EU customers in the future, although there are no plans to do so at this time.
Shipments to US, UK, Canada and Asia are not affected by these regulations and will be delivered as per normal.
Does each item come with a tracking number?
Yes, you will receive a tracking number when we ship out your items for you to track your item in real time. This tracking number may also be used to track your order with your local mail delivery service (i.e., USPS, Royal Mail) depending on your country and location.
How long does it take to receive a tracking number?
It takes approximately 2-5 business days to receive a tracking number for your item. Please note that it may take up to 7 days to receive your tracking number for clothing items, as we will have to tailor the item according to your size selection before shipping them out. For multi-item orders, tracking numbers for all items will only be sent once all the items have been shipped. The tracking numbers will be sent to your email address you used during checkout.
How do I track my order using my tracking number?
To track your order in real time, just click on the tracking number sent to your email to see the delivery status of your order.
How would I receive the tracking numbers?
The tracking numbers would be sent via email to the email you used during checkout.
Can I cancel or amend my order after payment?
Please note that we generally do not allow order cancellations after payment has been made. You may however request a change in item after placing your order (e.g., if you wanted a pink phone case instead of a white one). Please contact our customer service immediately using the contact us page before we ship out your items.
Why do I have to pay for shipping?
We provided free shipping for all orders initially, but free shipping meant that orders were delivered slower for smaller items as it goes through ordinary mail. In an effort to decrease shipping times and provide tracking across all items, we have introduced a fee for this expedited shipping method that uses a faster service and delivery courier.
What kinds of payment do you accept?
We accept PayPal, Mastercard, Visa, American Express and most credit cards. All payments are safe and secured by encryption, and your card details will not be stored.
What is your refund policy?
In accordance with our buyer protection and refund policy, we will issue a refund if you don’t receive your item or if you item is not as described. If your item arrives damaged due to delivery handling, we will replace the damaged item with no extra costs on your part. Please read the terms of our Refund Policy here.
