How to check the tracking

When you buy from Shein, you are given an approximate delivery date, but this may be delayed for different reasons.

These are the usual delivery times depending on the type of shipment:

  • Economy shipping: about 30 days (in some countries tracking information won't be available).
  • Pickup point: about 20 days (not available in all countries).
  • Standard shipping: about 20 days (tracking information is available).

When shopping at Shein you are always given a tracking number, so if you see that your Shein order is taking a long time, the first step is to check the tracking information.

But remember that this will only show activity if the shipment is standard shipping, as economy shipping only shows movement when it is in China and at the time of delivery.

We can check the tracking information through Shein's own app or by copying the tracking number and looking it up on a website or app such as 17track, Postal Ninja, Parcels, Aftership…

On any of these services it is easy to check where the order is going.

When can I complain?

According to Shein's customer service page (which you can check here), if the order has passed the delivery date but has not exceeded a week, they ask you to wait a few more days.

When more than a week has passed since the estimated delivery date, it's time to contact a Shein agent to request a refund.

Why is the order taking so long?

If your order is taking quite long to arrive but it is not yet time to claim, depending on the message that appears in the tracking, you can contact the shipping company first and, if they do not give you a solution, wait until you can contact Shein.

It is important to keep in mind that sometimes orders move faster through China than within our country. At the moment that a message informing you that it has left the country of origin, it will take a few days for a new one to appear informing you that it has arrived in the country of destination.

It is also common for the tracking to take longer to be updated once the order is within our own country.

And on specific dates with a high volume of work in transport companies such as Christmas, packages may take a little longer to be delivered.

My order has been stopped by customs

Each country has its own customs regulations, which we recommend to check before buying. All packages go through customs twice: in the country of origin, to check for anything dangerous, and in the country of destination, where they will check if it complies with import regulations.

Most customs only stop the heaviest and bulkiest packages, but in some countries it may be mandatory to pay or present extra documentation. If this is not done, the package will be held for a period of time and eventually returned to the seller.

If you have any doubts about the process, it is best to contact Shein. And if you have had to handle customs, remember that the platform can compensate you with a proportional refund to offset the cost of customs.

My order appears as delivered but I have not received it

If when you check the tracking information, the order appears as delivered but nothing has arrived, there is no doubt that it is an error. In this case we recommend you to contact the company that manages the delivery to confirm that the shipment has not been delivered to a neighbor or it has been an error of the company itself.

If the carrier is unable to solve the problem, you will have to contact Shein.

But if the order looks like it is not going to arrive or has some of the problems we have already mentioned above (stopped in customs or delivered to someone else), they will indicate you that we are eligible for a refund.

How to request a refund

Main article: Refunds at Shein

After requesting a refund from Shein, you will have to indicate to customer service where you want our money back:

  • Shein wallet: it will reach us faster and we can use it for other purchases.
  • Original payment method: it may take several days depending on whether it is a card, PayPal…
  • Gift card: only if we have used a gift card as a payment method.

After requesting the refund your order will appear in “Orders in return”. If we access the order details you will be able to see the status of the refund. You will also be refunded the points used.

Shipping guarantee, is it really necessary?

When paying for an order, Shein offers a shipping guarantee at an additional cost. If you pay for it, the platform commits to send you back your purchase, in case the goods are damaged or lost during shipping.

Even so, if you have not paid the shipping guarantee, your money is protected: you will still be able to request a refund if your order does not arrive or does not match the description.

So, in our opinion this additional guarantee is usually not worth it, especially on low-value orders where the guarantee can be more expensive than the product itself.
