-PLACING AN ORDER-
How do I know if my order went through?
You will receive an e-mail with your order # notifying you that your order has been placed. Once your order has been processed & shipped, you will receive an additional e-mail confirming that your payment has been accepted along with a tracking number for your order.
Please allow 1-2 work days for processing.
Why was I charged a State Sales Tax when my order was shipped from a state other than my own?
Traffic Los Angeles operates in both Los Angeles & Dallas. As a result, all orders placed by customers located in either California or Texas will have their State’s Sales Tax added to the total amount of their order.
I just checked my credit card statement and I was charged multiple times? Why?
When attempting to place an order, your credit card enters the payment Authorization process and your credit card company then places a temporary hold on those funds. If you have entered the wrong billing or shipping information your payment will fail to validate and will be declined (this may also occur if your billing and shipping information are different). If your payment has been declined and you attempt to checkout multiple times, this will result in multiple credit card Authorizations.
Most credit card companies will release the Authorization between 2-5 business days after the failed order was placed. If your Authorization has yet to be released after 6 business days please first contact your bank. If after contacting your bank there has yet to be a resolution, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
I just placed an order, can I cancel it?
An order may only be canceled prior to it’s being shipped but once you have received a confirmation e-mail with your tracking information, you may no longer cancel this order. Please e-mail email@example.com with CANCEL and your order # in the subject. Depending on your bank/credit card company it may take 2-5 days for your funds to be returned to your account.
How are the shipping rates calculated?
Shipping rates are real time calculations based on the services provided by UPS (for domestic orders) and FedEx (for international orders).
Do you offer free shipping?
All domestic orders over $150 are eligible for free ground shipping.
All international orders over $1000 are eligible for free shipping.
I only received part of my order, where are the other items?
The inventory on shoptrafficla.com is a combination of pieces from both our Los Angeles & Dallas stores. There is a possibility that an order placed for multiple items may contain product from both stores. Such orders will be sent in separate packages with separate tracking numbers.
I live in LA/Dallas, can I just pick my order up from one of your stores?
Web orders are considered separate from in-store orders and must be shipped to the address provided when the order was placed and verified.
I am located outside the United States, can you still ship to me?
Yes, Traffic Los Angeles uses FedEx to ship all international orders. Consult www.fedex.com, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for additional questions regarding international shipping.
My order's tracking information indicates that a label has been created but does not include any information about my package’s whereabouts.
Please allow 1-2 days for your order to be processed. The situation described above may occur if the label for your order was created after our daily UPS/FedEx pick up or if the UPS/FedEx driver failed to scan the package. If the tracking information has not updated after 3 days, please send an e-mail to email@example.com
My tracking information indicates that my order has been delivered but I have yet to receive the package.
If your tracking number indicates that your package has been delivered but you have yet to receive your package please wait and check again the next day. If the package has still not been delivered, please first contact UPS/FedEx. If they are unable to help you, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your order # as the subject.
*We require signatures on all deliveries. If you have chosen for the delivery service to drop off the package without a signature we are no longer responsible if the package is taken from your doorstep.
I am going out of town, can I change the delivery address for my order?
No, orders may only be shipped to the address provided when the order was placed and verified.
I prefer to use my own shipping account
We do allow customers to use their own Fed Ex or UPS account to ship their order, BUT if you chose this option we can no longer guarantee that your order will arrive and/or arrive safely. If you would like to use your personal account to ship your order, please e-mail your account information to email@example.com and include your ORDER # in the subject.
