Shipping Questions

Yes, we do offer expedited shipping. Due to the large number of diverse products and other variables we do not have an expedited shipping option on our website, so you need to contact us for a rate. The rate will depend on the item/s being shipped, the shipping location and the level of expedited service. Within the U.S. and Canada we can provide overnight, second day and three-day air service. For orders being shipped outside the U.S., we can offer 3-4 day UPS air for many of our products. For expedited shipping rates, please contact us at 1-561-855-2371 or sales@oriental-decor.com.
After your order is shipped, we will email you with the tracking information for your package. For orders sent via UPS or FedEx, you can simply click the link in our email for tracking information. For orders sent via the post office, you will need to go to www.usps.com and enter the delivery confirmation number we provide. For some international orders, tracking information may not be offered.
Depending on the product you order, we will ship it with either UPS, FedEx or the U.S. postal system. Nearly all of the packages we send through the U.S. postal system come with a delivery confirmation number for domestic U.S. shipments. This is not a tracking number like UPS or FedEx offers. It is solely meant to alert you when your package is delivered. It is perfectly normal for the usps.com website to state is has no record of the item, or provide no details on the order, before it arrives to you. For postal shipments sent outside the U.S., a customs number is often provided. This is not a tracking number and is only updated on occasion. Its purpose, when updated, is to inform our customers when their package passes through customs.
We ship to most countries in the world, with the bulk of our orders going to the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. In the last several years we have successfully shipped orders to over 60 countries.
Approximately 70% of our products ship from our warehouse in Oxford, Connecticut, while other products are shipped from select warehouses in the U.S. On occasion, we will ship directly from Asia.
Unless free shipping is offered, our minimum shipping charge is $6.95 per order. Depending on the weight of the products ordered, this amount can cover one item (such as a wall fan) or multiple items (such as sevaral paper lanterns).
That depends on the shipping location and the item/s ordered. Most of our products ship the same or next business day via UPS ground or 2-3 day priority mail within the U.S and Canada. We have added a shipping disclaimer to every product page on our website to let you know the approximate time it takes for an item to ship. Most orders being shipped within the U.S. arrive in one week or less. Orders outside the U.S. can require anywhere from several days to several weeks to arrive, depending on the location, duration in customs and the shipping method.
All of the shipments we send via UPS and FedEx are fully insured. Shipments sent via the post office may or may not be insured. However, we take responsibility for any shipments that arrive damaged. We may request photos of the damage before replacing the damaged item/s.
We take great care in packaging and shipping your items, but occasionally accidents can happen during shipping. If your order arrives damaged, please contact us. We will probably ask you to place the damaged item/s back in the original packing materials for inspection by the shipping carrier. Or, we may email you a shipping label to have the damaged item/s sent back to us. We will then replace the item/s at no additional expense to you.

Product Questions

Even though opening your wall fan is easy and should take just seconds, this is one of our most common questions! They all open in a clockwise direction. If you open it in the counter-clockwise direction, it will be stiff and won't open all the way. Don't worry, they won't be damaged this way, just reverse the direction and your fan will open easily and fully. Each fan is made to open and close easily and in fact it cannot be otherwise because they must be opened fully in order to be painted. If you find yourself forcing the fan to open, please STOP and open the fan in the opposite direction. For more details on opening your fan correctly, please see this page.
No, our stock availability changes so frequestly that we cannot offer printed catalogs. All of the products we sell are displayed on our website. If you do not see what you are looking for on our website, please contact us. We will do our best to find it for you.
Yes, we offer custom art work for many of our products. For pricing, please contact us for a rate. Often we will ask you to email us a photo, diagram, measurements or anything else that will help us create the perfect customized artwork for you. Custom logos and wording can be silk screened onto our hand fans and wall fans as well.
Yes! We would love to see your pictures and will soon have a gallery to display them to all of our viewers.
We try to accomodate our global audience, but some items are either prohibited from international shipping, they are extremely expensive to ship overseas (i.e., large furniture pieces), or they have a very high chance of damage during overseas shipping (i.e., cork sculptures). Also, live bonsai trees cannot ship outside the U.S.
Many of the items on our website are one-of-a-kind or hard to get items. Although we update our website with inventory information continually, ccasionally an item you have ordered may have just gone out of stock. We will notify you if an item you ordered is on back order. In most instances, a back ordered item will return to stock within a matter of days or weeks. We will notify you by email, phone, or both, on approximately how long it will be before your item/s return to stock. You will then have the option of waiting for the item, choosing a new in-stock item as a replacement or receiving a refund.
We have a large inventory turnover. We try our best to keep everything in stock, but sometimes we sell out quickly and the next shipment from Asia could be two or more months away. Please feel free to contact us and we'll let you know when an item will be arriving back in stock. You may also register on our website (see the upper right side of the screen for details). You will need to choose a user name and password. By registering, you can store any product on our website in a Wishlist. If that product is out of stock, we will notify you by email when it returns to stock. You do not need to register on our website to make a purchase.
We usually ship bonsai trees at the beginning of the week so they avoid lengthy overnight stays at the UPS of FedEx facility on the weekends. For example, if you order a tree from us on a Wednesday, and it going across country, we will often wait until the following Monday to ship it. This will cut down the transit time of the tree and ensure it arrives to you fresh and healthy. The only other time we will delay shipment of a tree is if it is out of stock (we will notify you if it is), or if you order a flowering tree and night time temperatures are below freezing. In this case, we will notify you that your order will be delayed until temperatures rise above freezing. This scenario usually only happens during the cold winter months.
