FAQ


Shipping

    • Q: Has my order shipped?

      A: Orders that can be immediately fulfilled will be processed and shipped within 48 business hours (Monday through Friday 9-5, excluding holidays*). For orders placed around the holiday season, please allow extra time for processing orders.

      Orders that are waiting on backordered or preordered titles will be shipped when the last title on the order arrives unless separate shipping lines were purchased to break up the shipping of an order.

      Once an order is placed on the website you will receive an order confirmation email for the purchase and a second email once the order has been shipped containing tracking information.

      **A notice will be posted on the website if shipping of orders will be delayed.

    • Q: Where is my order?

      A: Once your package has been shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email containing a tracking number you can use to track your package.

      For orders shipped within the United States, if your tracking has not updated and you have not received your package for 2 weeks past the USPS estimated delivery date, please contact [email protected]

      International packages sent via USPS cannot be tracked once they have left the United States, until they have arrived at their destination. For more information on international shipments, see the International Shipping FAQ.

      All other inquiries regarding the status of your order that cannot be answered otherwise, contact [email protected]

    • Q: I have not received an email about my order.

      A: Check your spam folder.

      You did not provide Light In The Attic with an email address.

      Your order has not been shipped yet. For more info regarding your order, contact [email protected]

    • Q: I received part of my order but I am still waiting for something.

      A: In this case, you have selected to have multiple shipping lines, meaning you paid for shipping for items that could be sent out immediately, and then again for items that are on backorder or preorder. Those items will be shipped when they arrive at our warehouse or near their release date. If release dates change, Light In The Attic will provide updates via email and/or the website.

International Shipping

    • Q: Do you ship outside the US?

      A: Yes. We ship items all over the world.

    • Q: How much is shipping to where I live?

      A: Shipping rates will vary depending on the part of the world we are shipping to, the weight of your order, and the shipping method you choose.

      Below is a very general idea of shipping costs via USPS international first class shipping.

      REGION | ONE GATEFOLD LP | TWO GATEFOLD LPS
      -———————————————————————————
      CANADA | $16 | $22

      EUROPE | $22 | $32

      ASIA/AUSTRALIA | $22 | $32
      -———————————————————————————

      • SHIPPING RATES WILL VARY. THIS IS JUST AN APPROXIMATE COST FOR USPS INTERNATIONAL FIRST CLASS.

      For accurate shipping costs on your exact order to your exact address, you can walk through the checkout process on our website until you get to the shipping section to see actual amounts based on the shipping method of your choice without having to complete the transaction.

    • Q: How long will it take for my package to arrive?

      A: Shipping times will vary depending on where you live. Shipping via USPS first class international can take anywhere from 2 weeks to over a month due to customs clearances.

      Customers in Asia and Australia typically will have the longest waiting times for their items to arrive.

      To ensure quicker shipping times, consider upgrading the shipping method to a faster option.

    • Q: Why does the package tracking system say my package is still in the US?

      A: USPS international shipping does not update package tracking once it has left the US until it has arrived at its destination. The tracking will show no movement on the package since its US departure.

    • Q: It has been over a month and my package has still not arrived.

      A: The package may be caught at customs and is still being processed.

      The package may be at your local post office waiting to be picked up. Call your local post office with your tracking number.

      The package may have been returned to sender.

    • Q: Tracking says my package was returned to sender.

      A: In the case that your package was sent back to Light In The Attic, we will contact you when the package arrives and discuss further action.

      If your package was returned because of a mistake on Light In The Attic’s part, we will confirm with you and then attempt to resend the package.

      If your package was returned because you have provided an inaccurate address (ie, you moved and did not update address, provided a wrong address) or you did not pick up your package from your post office/failed to accept package when it was delivered, and still want your order, we will require that you pay additional shipping costs to resend the package.

Changing an Order

    • Q: Can I add to my order/combine

      A: We appreciate your business, and would love to accommodate as much as we can for you, but recently due to the high volume of orders (thanks to you!) we are not able to accommodate modifying orders or shipping options once an order is placed. If you would like to order additional items, they must be separate orders.

      We are not able to combine orders to save on shipping once an order has been placed as well. Thanks for your understanding!

    • Q: I accidentally ordered the wrong item.

      A: Contact [email protected] and we’ll try to get you sorted out.

    • Q: Can I cancel my order?

      A: – For orders that are immediately available to ship, you may cancel your order up to 24 hours after placing the order by contacting [email protected] Once the order has shipped, we are unable to cancel the order.
      For pre-order/back-order items, you may cancel your order at any time until the estimated ship date. Once the order has shipped, we are unable to cancel the order.

    • Q: How do I change my shipping/billing address?

      A: If your shipping/billing address was incorrect at the time your order was placed, please send the correct address to [email protected] as soon as possible.

      Once an order has been shipped, we are no longer able to update your shipping address.

      Orders can be processed in less than 24 hours, so alerting us to an address change as soon as possible will help ensure you receive your package in a timely manner.

Problems with an order

    • Q: There was an item missing in my order.

      A: Was your missing item a preorder or backorder item? It’s possible that you paid for separate shipping for that item and that it will be coming later. It will say on your invoice if the missing item was preorder/backorder.

      The missing item may have been out of stock, in which case you were issued a refund for that item and an attempt was made to contact you via email to let you know of the refund.

      If you are just missing an item on your order, contact [email protected] with the order confirmation email attached or a photo of the invoice you were sent so that we can easily access your order information and we will send you the missing item.

    • Q: My item was damaged/defective.

      A: – If you have a damaged or defective item, please send a picture of the damage, or in the case

      of damage that is only audible, such as a record skip, please send video of the record playing

      at the skip to [email protected] along with your order confirmation email.

    • Q: I received the wrong order/item.

      A: If you received an incorrect item, please send a picture of the item along with your order

      confirmation email to [email protected]

Subscriptions

    • Q: What is a subscription?

      A: Light In The Attic offers subscriptions two times per year of selected new titles from our catalog. One in the first half of a year, and a second in the second half of the year. These are advertised on our catalog page on the website when they become available to order.

      Each subscription is different, so reading the item description closely is advised. We offer CD and LP subscriptions. The item description will say how many titles you will receive.

      Not all titles in a given subscription will be revealed on the website. We like to give you some surprises!

      LP subscribers will often receive subscriber only colored vinyl for releases. Colored vinyl is not a guarantee for every title, and is only available while supplies last.

      Subscribers also receive a 15% discount code good for the whole year to use on any title or item on our website.

    • Q: When will I get my first CD/LP?

      A: Titles will usually be shipped a week before their release date. Due to shipping time, you

      may not receive the item by the release date based on where you live.

    • Q: It is two weeks past the release date of a subscription title and I still have not received it.

      A: Contact [email protected]

    • Q: How do I update my shipping address for my subscription?

      A: Contact [email protected] to update your shipping information.

Digital Media

    • Q: I didn’t get a download card with my LP.

      A: Not all releases come with download cards due to licensing agreements with the artists, labels, or estates. Releases that come with download cards will say so on the packaging.

      If the packaging on the LP clearly states that the title comes with a download card inside, and there isn’t one, contact [email protected]

    • Q: I’m having a technical issue downloading my MP3s.

      A: Contact [email protected]
