Shipping Policies

General Shipping

Please note that once an order has been placed, we are not able to modify or cancel your order. Design By U reserves the right to refuse sales or cancel orders placed by a customer in violation of the site’s terms or as otherwise determined by Design By U.

  • All orders will be processed and shipped within 2 business days (excluding weekends & holidays) after receiving payment via Paypal/Shopify Payments/Major CC, regardless of shipping method. Selecting overnight shipping does not ensure you will receive it the next day, rather overnight from when it is shipped, which will be no later than 3 business days.
  • Next day or overnight shipping cutoff is 1 PM PST, Mon-Fri—We do our best to ship any and all overnight or express orders the same day they are received, as long as the order is placed before 1 PM PST, Mon-Fri. If you need your order tomorrow, please make sure you order before our shipping cutoff time to ensure delivery.

  • Please note that orders will be particularly delayed during the launch of a new collection, restock of sold out items, and/or during sale periods.
