Shipping to Canada or outside the continental U.S.
Additional shipping charges will apply to orders shipping outside the Continental U.S., to Canada or other international destinations. Charges are calculated using UPS, USPS or FedEx specifications; the cost to ship to you is calculated at checkout prior to purchase. These orders will likely incur additional charges on arrival (due at delivery), such as Brokerage Fees, Duty and Taxes. For Your Party does not regulate and is not responsible for these additional charges.
Shipping matches outside the U.S.
International orders containing matches will ship to available countries using FedEx and will include a hazardous materials charge. Not all postal codes allow hazardous material deliveries. If you have a problem finding your country from the FedEx list of eligible countries, shipping is probably not available to your area. If you want to know for sure, head over to our Contact Us page. Submit your request under General Inquiries, including a brief message with your postal code. You can also give us a call and we will check for you!
Are your matches safety matches?
Yes! All of the matches that we sell are safety matches. This means that the match will only ignite on a specially prepared surface—the striker pad on our matchbooks and matchboxes.
Track your order
Track your package right here from our website using your order number. You can find this field towards the bottom of the Contact Us page. Simply type in your order number and then hit the mint-colored "Track" button. When your order ships, you will also receive an email notification from the carrier with your carrier tracking number and estimated delivery date. Use this number to track your package on the tracking page of the UPS, FedEx or USPS website.
All of our products are packed with a protective packaging of either tissue, bubble wrap or brown packing paper and then placed in cardboard boxes.
Additional Shipping Charges
UPS requires very accurate ship-to addresses for their deliveries. For example, UPS requires multi-unit dwellings' shipping addresses include the exact unit number the package goes to. Any errors UPS finds in your address when attempting delivery will incur an additional charge, a minimum of $16.40. This charge will be added to your credit card after the item has been delivered. Also, if you change the ship-to address once the order has shipped, a minimum of $21.90 intercept fee will also be charged to your credit card. We do everything we can to verify your address using the UPS address verification software before we allow you to process your order. Please be sure to provide the correct address so that you can avoid these shipping carrier charges!
