From where do you ship?
All orders are packaged and ship from our family business in Austin, TX. We can ship anywhere in the world! Proceed to checkout to see pricing options for international shipping.
How much is shipping?
FREE standard US shipping for orders $50 and up!
US orders under $50.00 will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail (2-5 days shipping speed) for a flat $5.00 fee. If you would like us to send the order expedited via USPS Priority Mail or UPS, you can select expedited shipping for $10.00 (2-3 days delivery after processing).
US orders $50 and up receive free USPS First Class shipping. No redemption code necessary!
US orders over $125 receive FREE expedited shipping via USPS Priority Mail (1-3 days) or UPS Ground.
For international orders, the shipping cost is viewable at checkout based on weight, package size, destination, and shipping speed. You will be able to see shipping price options before completing the order, so please proceed to enter shipping information to view options. Please note that if the shipping charge paid is inaccurate based on how the order is packaged, you may receive an invoice for the additional shipping expense. PLEASE COVER YOUR SHIPMENT WITH ROUTE SHIPPING INSURANCE; if you do not add Route coverage at checkout for an international shipment, the cost will be invoiced to you.
Is expedited shipping guaranteed?
The only guaranteed shipping services are at an additional cost, so please contact us if you need the package within 3 days. Priority Mail is provided at no charge to the customer for orders over $125 and available at checkout for $10 if the order total is under $125, but Priority Mail is not a guaranteed service for delivery in 3 days. It is reliably accurate but there are instances when it does not arrive by its estimated date. We are unable to refund shipping charges for the carrier's delayed delivery unless it is a guaranteed service for which the customer contacts us to arrange (Priority Mail Express).
What is Route Shipping Protection?
Route is a new platform for customers to insure their order; at checkout, make sure the “Add shipping protection for $.XX” is selected. (This is underneath the subtotal and above the “update cart” button.)
For orders under $100, the cost for the protection is just 98 cents! For orders over $100, it is roughly 1 to 2% of the cart total before discounts. This is much cheaper and easier than any insurance that shipping providers offer! We highly encourage you to select this coverage to protect your Barn Chic items from loss, damage, or theft. With Route, even porch pirating issues and packages marked as delivered but not received are covered.
Once you complete your transaction, you will receive an email from Route that provides instructions on how to file a claim (with one click!) should that be necessary.
When will my order ship (how long is processing time)?
We pride ourselves on our quick turnaround time; orders are processed within 1-3 business days, with many orders shipping same or next day. The exception to this timeline is a new collection launch or a special promotion like Black Friday deals; during the first week of a launch or in the case of a special promotion, the processing time may be up to 5 business days.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we do. For more information please visit our Shipping page. If your country is not a shipping destination, you may contact us to inquire about an order.
Can I get my order overnighted?
The short answer is yes, but it is dependent on volume and timing of order for that day; please text us at 512-710-1238 (preferable) and/or contact us to inquire about this service. We partner with USPS Priority Express and UPS for this service at the customer’s expense. The cost is dependent on weight/size of package and shipping destination; the least expensive option is $26.
How can I protect my shipment? Can I purchase insurance?
YES! We are so excited to offer our customers a very affordable and super simple way to protect your order from our hands to yours (not just your doorstep!) through Route. See above for more details.
Can I ship to an address other than my own?
Yes, and you can enter the recipient’s address directly on the order; it will ship straight to them with a gift receipt enclosed (no prices are on gift receipts or packing slips, and you can enter a custom message for the complimentary gift card!).
Why does my order tracking still say "Pre-Shipment?"
As of July 2020, we have seen a lack of tracking for some USPS orders; while this could mean that your order has not yet entered the postal system, it lately is more often reflective that the package has yet to be scanned on its journey to you. We have noticed that some packages never receive a scan (and hence update tracking), while others are scanned the moment they enter the system. We apologize for the issue but this is out of our control.
Can I leave a message for a gift card? Where do I do that?
Absolutely! We love sending our beautiful baby items as gifts to celebrate the most special of occasions! When you are in the checkout page – in your cart view – there is a question that says IS THIS A GIFT? with additional text following and a large box outlined in black with the text “Add gift card message or special instructions here.” Note that if you make changes to the cart, you will need to add the message again.
Do you gift wrap?
We wrap every order in gift tissue, seal with a Barn Chic Boutique sticker, and enclose with a personalized note/gift message in a clear plastic mailer inside the shipping envelope/box so that every order has a gift presentation!
How do I know if my order went through?
You will receive an email confirmation of your order immediately after the order is placed. If you do not receive an email confirmation, please contact us.
Where is my order confirmation?
As soon as your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation to the email address you entered on your order. If for any reason you did not receive an email, please check your spam folder. If you can’t find an email from us, please email us to ensure that the correct address is on file for order confirmations and shipping updates.
How do I update or cancel an order?
Since we do our best to get your order processed and shipped as soon as possible, please text us at 512-710-1238 (preferable) and/or contact us within two hours of placing your order to make sure we accommodate your changes before your order is out the door and on its way to you or the gift recipient! Please note that all items from the SALE! Collection are final sale and we are not able to edit or cancel those orders. ALL PRE-SALE ORDERS ARE FINAL and cannot be canceled (or returned).
Special Sales & Holiday Promotions
Discounted pricing during special promotions is offered for a limited time while supplies last and is not applicable on previous orders. There are lots of special sales that are only available to our customers and email/text subscribers, so be sure to sign up for our list – and please know we respect your inbox and only email with sales or big announcements. To join, scroll to the bottom right of our website and enter your email.
My discount code won't work. Help!
Please note that discount codes are not applicable during the first week of a new collection's launch period, or during pre-sales. This is per our retailer agreement with our vendors. Thank you for understanding.
The system only accepts one discount code per transaction. If you have any automatic discounts that are appearing when you are on the checkout page (for example, a buy one, get one half off special), the system will not allow additional discount codes to be used on the order. If you would like to use the automatic discounts and a discount code for items that don't apply to the automatic discount, please complete two separate transitions and we will combine the orders for shipping and issue a shipping charge refund for one order.
How do I initiate a return?
If for any reason you are not satisfied with an item you receive from Barn Chic Boutique, we will be happy to issue a return or exchange within 14 days of purchase, provided that the item is still in its original packaging, has tags attached, has not been worn or washed, and is within the limits of our return policy. Barn Chic Boutique items must be returned with their original tags and packaging. Original shipping charges are non-refundable. To initiate a return, email us (sarah at barnchicboutique.com) with the reason for return and be sure to read our full return and exchange policy here. Note that international orders, sale items, and boxed items are final sale. If a discount code greater than 10% is used on non-sale items, those items are eligible for store credit only.
Do I have to pay for the return shipping?
Yes, the customer is responsible for the return shipping expense. We can provide you with a link for a label that you can print out and affix to your package; the cost of the shipping is determined by package weight and size, and this cost will be deducted from your return refund. Exchange shipping is free both directions.
Can I return or exchange items that were bought on sale?
All marked down items and items listed in the SALE! collection when purchased are final sale. Holiday print items are not returnable after Thanksgiving. Note that full price items purchased with a 10% off discount code are eligible for return or exchange for the purchase price unless otherwise noted with the special promotion. Items purchased with codes greater than a 10% discount are only eligible for exchange or store credit. Pre-sale items are final sale.
How long does it take to process my return?
Once your return shipment is received, a refund to your method of payment will be issued within one business day (however, it may take 2-3 weeks for your refund to appear on your statement). You will receive an email notifying you that the refund was processed (less any return shipping fees).
HELP! I got an email/text saying my package was delivered and it isn't here!
So sorry for the trouble - this does happen on occasion. All packages are shipped with tracking; in the rare case that a package is marked as delivered via the provided tracking service but not received, please first reach out to any neighbors and your mail carrier if possible. Sometimes the delivery scan happens before the package is actually delivered, so please give it through the end of the day. If, after that evening, you still have not received your package, please contact us and we can help guide you on how to initiate an investigation with the delivering post office. Please note that Barn Chic Boutique cannot be held responsible for packages marked as delivered but not received due to theft or postal office delivery errors. PLEASE PURCHASE ROUTE SHIPPING COVERAGE TO ENSURE YOUR ORDER IS COVERED (even when the package shows as delivered but is not in your hands!).
