Hours of Operation:
Office - Hours of Operation: My online shops are located here (DarkMoonMerchant.com), at Mercari, Ebay & Etsy.com. I try to get my packages shipped out every day including Sundays. Business days for shipping are Monday - Saturday.
Please remember that your order may not be the only one that I am fulfilling. I do make sure that each order and customer gets the attention and care they deserve, however.
Where is my order?
I try to fulfill orders within 1-4 days. All customers do receive an email that their order has shipped, with tracking information included. Please wait 24 hours after your notice for tracking to be updated at USPS/UPS/DHL. You can check this information in your customer account as well. Also you may track your package once it has shipped by using this Order Tracker

Can You Ship To a PO BOX?
Shipping to your PO Box is OK! To have your items sent to your PO box please choose USPS shipping only. If you choose shipping to a PO Box with DHL and UPS your order can't be fulfilled and it will be refunded.
Shipping Cost - Shipping costs for various carriers are shown on the cart page with an estimate on how much shipping will be at the time of checkout.
Domestic Shipping Transit Times: Delivery times depend on the delivery method selected. For instance, First Class Package & Priority shipping typically takes between 2-6 days in the continental US. The USPS/UPS/DHL are third party shipping services and provide these estimates as a guideline, so actual shipping times can not be guaranteed, they are only an estimate.
Overseas Shipping Time:
Dark Moon Merchant is a USA based company. For orders outside of the USA or overseas please allow 6 to possibly 30 days to reach your destination. Sometimes, but not always, shipments that are imported are held at customs for inspection.
Please leave a phone number with your order when you check out, for proper customs declaration.
Please be aware that your item may be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done about customs clearance - customs laws make the importer (the buyer - you!) responsible for these fees.
When you pick up your package at customs you may have to provide a receipt. I also attach a receipt of your order on international packages for customs information.
In addition to this, in many areas in Europe, packages are held at your local post office at the time of delivery and have to be picked up in person.
Can I track my order?
Absolutely! Every order at Dark Moon Merchant comes with tracking. Look in the “my orders” section in “my account” you can see the status of your order. Once an item is prepared and labeled for shipping you will be notified by email. Full tracking information should be available through USPS Tracking within 24 hours.
You can also visit the TRACKING PAGE to see an updated status on your order at any time.
At anytime you wish you can contact me directly at Dark Moon Merchant Contact Page for questions or any issue with your order.
