Shipping & Delivery

When will my order ship?

Online orders may take 1 to 3 business days to process depending on order volume and product availability date. We do our absolute best to process any orders placed Monday through Friday before 12 pm that same day. All New York orders take 1 to 2 business days to arrive, so expedited shipping may not be needed. Our warehouse does not ship on weekends or after hours. If you need additional information please contact Whalebone Customer Service at orders@shopwhalebone.com. Our business hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 6 pm, EST.

When can I expect my order to be delivered?

All orders are shipped via UPS, and estimated delivery dates change based on location and are highlighted in the image below. For all UPS expedited orders, days of delivery are only Monday-Friday. UPS does not deliver on Saturday for expedited orders. If you need additional information please contact Whalebone Customer Service at orders@shopwhalebone.com.


Has my order shipped? How can I track my order?

You will receive a shipping confirmation email as soon as your package leaves our warehouse. It will contain information to track your order. If it has been a few days since you placed your order and you have not received shipping confirmation, please contact customer service at shop@whalebonemag.com.

Do you ship internationally or to PO boxes?

We do ship internationally, but as of now, we do not ship to PO boxes as we use UPS to deliver the goods. Should you absolutely need delivery to a PO box, please send us a note at orders@shopwhalebone.com and we’ll get you squared away.

International customers are responsible for any and all fees, taxes, and duties incurred. You can obtain more information at your local customs office. All goods are shipped “FOB” by our warehouse. FOB (Freight On Board) – An International Term of Sale that means the seller fulfills their obligation to deliver when the goods have passed over the border at the named border of the country. This means that the buyer has to bear all costs, risks to, loss of, or damage to the goods from that point. This includes the duties and taxes. The FOB terms require the seller to clear the goods for export.

The “Ship To” and “Bill To” addresses must be the same on all international orders.

Any oversize items are not available for shipment outside of the Continental U.S. and Canada.

Processing time on international orders can take up to 4 additional business days.

We DO NOT ship to freight forwarders. If you enter an order to be shipped to a freight forwarder, unfortunately, we will need to cancel the order.

My order never arrived, what do I do?

If you notice your neighbor wearing the super soft tee that you ordered, then take it up with him. Otherwise, please contact customer service at orders@shopwhalebone.com and we can help you.

Ordering & Billing

Can I use two promo codes at once?

Only one offer may be redeemed at a time. NO TWO OFFERS OR PROMO CODES MAY BE COMBINED.

I ordered the wrong product, can I adjust my order?

Once an order is submitted, you cannot make changes. This includes size changes, shipping information, and promotional codes. Please contact us as soon as possible so we can stop the order from shipping to you. For assistance please email shop@whalebonemag.com.

What if I don’t receive my entire order?

Back issues of the magazines and some specialty capsule items will ship separately from our clothing orders. If you’re missing something else from your order, it could be out of stock at our warehouse and you will be notified and refunded. We try to fulfill all orders as completely and efficiently as possible, but inventory is subject to change and any unavailable item will be canceled. We do not back order any items and you will only be charged for the product that has been shipped to you. Please reach out to Customer Service at orders@shopwhalebone.com.
