Is your order lost?

While the vast majority of orders arrive the following working day it's an unfortunate fact that occasionally parcels can be held up or lost in the post, which we have no control over. If your order has not yet arrived we ask that you please check the following before contacting us:

Has the order been dispatched?

Please check the orders section of your Total Cards account. If the status is COMPLETED this means your order has been dispatched..

Is your order at your local sorting office?

It's possible the postal service may be holding your package, especially if dispatched via Recorded/Signed For Delivery and they've been unable to deliver your order. Please contact your local postal sorting office to see if they have your order.

How long ago was the item sent?

We are regulated by Royal Mail's terms & conditions and they require a waiting time from dispatch of 15 WORKING DAYS for the UK, 30 WORKING DAYS for the EU and 40 WORKING DAYS for the rest of the world before you can make a lost parcel claim. We understand the frustration that a delayed or lost item can cause but unfortunately we cannot take any action until this time has passed.

Royal Mail do not always leave a "Sorry we missed you" card when nobody is at the address to take your parcel, which is to inform you that you missed the delivery as some items are to big for the letterbox. Please make sure you check with your neighbours and your local Royal Mail sorting office to check that they do not have your parcel at the depot, as there is a very likely chance that your delivery was returned to your local Royal Mail sorting office. Please ensure you check with them first before getting in touch to find out where your order is as we will advise you speak to them first as we're unable to call on your behalf as you are the named person on the parcel and due to data protection we are not able to discuss your parcel with them unless it is classed as lost after 15 days in which we can open an investigation and Royal Mail will be in touch with you for more information about your order to help locate your parcel.

Please note that items must be reported as missing within 40 days of being dispatched to you as we are unable to take any action on your behalf after this time.
