We pride in giving our customers the option to pay Cash-on-Delivery but due to the large number of people abusing this servicing by denying the packages during delivery, we incur losses in shipping and revenue. We have been thus forced to flag and cancel any COD order that seems suspicious or if the customer has a previous history of rejecting packages. In such cases, please contact our customer care to confirm your order and we will try to assist you on your order.

Transit times for “Next-Day” and other expedited forms of shipping are calculated from the point in time that the Mail Carrier picks up an order from our warehouse after processing.

The delivery time frames provided are averages for most mail pieces. drkstore is not responsible if a Mail Carrier delays the arrival of your package due to circumstances beyond our control and or other issues. drkstore does not provide refunds in case your package is delayed.
