Frequently Asked Questions





Where is my order?


An e-mail containing your tracking number will be automatically sent within a few hours of the package leaving our warehouse.  If you do not receive this e-mail because of an incorrect e-mail address entered during checkout, please contact us and we would be happy to look up your tracking information.


Why is my order late?


If you need an item by a specific date, we recommend to select FedEx 2-Day or FedEx Overnight shipping. Ground delivery will take 3-10 business days to arrive and may be delivered either by FedEx or your local postal carrier.
We make every effort to ship out all orders the same day they are placed if we receive the order before 1:00PM Eastern Time.  Occasionally, depending on the item(s) ordered, we may need an additional 1-2 business days to process your order.

If you need to place an expedited order that needs to arrive by a specific date, feel free to contact us with the item(s) you wish to order and we can confirm for you whether it will be shipped out same-day.


Do you ship to a military address?


Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver to APO/FPO military addresses.


Do you ship to P.O. Boxes?


Unfortunately, we do not ship to P.O. Boxes.


I want to order a heat sensitive product, like chocolate. How do you ensure items don’t melt in transit?


During warmer months and to warmer climates at our discretion, we will include cold packs in all boxes that contain heat-sensitive merchandise at no charge to you.  However, cold packs don’t stay cold forever!  If you live in a hot climate or if there’s a possibility the package may be left outdoors in heat, we highly recommend selecting 2-Day or overnight shipping or shipping to an alternate address.


I typed in an incorrect shipping or billing address when checking out – how can I fix this?


Incorrect billing addresses may cause issues during check out when the cardholder information doesn’t match the mailing address where your credit card statements are sent.  Aside from this security check, once an order is placed and an order confirmation e-mail is sent, an incorrect billing address causes no problems.

To fix an incorrect shipping address, please contact customer service by email (make sure to include the order number and the correct shipping address), and we will do our best to correct the issue before the package is shipped out.  Since we strive to offer same-day shipping on all orders received before 1:00PM Eastern Time (Mon-Fri), sometimes it’s not possible for us to intercept your order before it goes out.

If we are unable to correct the address in time and the address is undeliverable, we can re-ship the order at the customer’s expense, once the package is returned to us.  FedEx does offer an option to have a package held at a FedEx Office location for pickup by the recipient.  This option may not be available for some ground orders that are delivered instead by USPS.  Please contact FedEx at 1-800-GO-FEDEX for specific delivery requests.


Do you ship internationally?


At this time, we are only able to ship within the United States and Canada.  Some of our international customers use freight forwarders in the United States who will accept orders on their behalf; however, for security reasons, orders sent to a freight forwarder may require additional identity verification at our discretion. We cannot be held responsible for orders after they reach the warehouse delivery address.


I made a mistake on my order! Can I revise or cancel it?


Changes to an order almost always require cancellation and placing a new order due to price differences, sales tax changes, and the fact that we don’t store credit card information.  Please email us at with your order number and requested changes, and we will let you know as soon as possible what can be done.


Why are there multiple charges from IT’SUGAR on my credit card?


Occasionally, in an effort to serve you better, we will ship part of an order from one location, and another part from a different location. We will only charge your credit card once a package ships out, and only for the items in that box.

The combined total of the charges will never exceed the order total shown on your order confirmation receipt that is e-mailed immediately after the order is placed.

How can I return merchandise purchased from a store?


Any unwashed, unworn, defective merchandise and packaged goods in the original packaging may be returned within 30 days of purchase date for a full refund. Refunds will be issued in the original form of payment. Returns without a receipt will only be offered a store exchange at the current selling price. Please note that bulk candy, gift cards, and clearance items are considered "final sale" merchandise, and are not eligible for refund or exchange.


After receiving my online order, I didn’t receive the correct item(s) or they arrived damaged.  What can be done?


Please contact us and we will arrange for a replacement or refund, depending on your preference. Please make sure to send photos in an email along with your order number. Depending on the item(s), we may provide a pre-paid FedEx shipping return label.  If you don’t live near a FedEx drop box or location, we will schedule a pickup from your location at our expense.


I changed my mind about my online order, or ordered the wrong size or color.  How can I make a return or exchange?


We can accept returns of any unopened product for any reason up to 60 days after the order date, but return shipping is the buyer’s responsibility if the return is not the result of our error.  Detailed return instructions are available on our Returns & Exchanges page.


I was notified of an online refund, but don’t see the refund appear yet.  When will I get my refund?


Depending on your bank or credit card company, refunds can sometimes take up to 3-5 business days to be reflected.  If it has been longer than 5 business days and you still don’t see your refund, please contact us for assistance.  For PayPal orders, refunds are issued immediately.


Can I return an online order to a store?


Unfortunately, online orders can only be returned by sending them in – instructions are available on our Returns & Exchanges page.  Our apologies for the inconvenience!

I saw an item in a store that I really like, but it’s not on your website. How can I buy it?


Many items in our stores are not available for online ordering, but we recommend calling the store nearest you to find out if they have what you’re looking for.  There are nearly 100 IT’SUGAR locations nationwide – if you found us while on vacation, it’s very possible there is a store near you, too!


Do you offer in-store pickup for an online order?


Unfortunately, online orders can only be shipped to a recipient address, not picked up at a store.  If you find a product online that you would like to pick up in a store, we recommend calling the store nearest you to find out if they have what you’re looking for.  Most, but not all, items on our website are also available in most of our store locations.


Can I customize the gift message?


Of course! During the checkout process, you will be able to enter a gift message and have the option to choose to print it on a card or on the packing slip.


Are there prices printed on the packing slip if I’m sending something as a gift?


Prices are never printed on the packing slip, or shown anywhere on the package (except for orders shipped to Canada due to customs paperwork). This is true regardless of whether the order is marked as a gift order.


Do you offer gift-wrapping?


Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer gift-wrapping.  However, we do have a selection of gift boxes that are available online only!


Can I schedule delivery for a specific date or time?


At this time, we are unable to accept an order in advance for delivery on a specific date.  We recommend waiting until 3 business days before the desired delivery date, and then placing a FedEx 2-Day order.  We guarantee on-time delivery if 2-Day or overnight delivery is selected, and we will refund your shipping charge if it is delivered late.  Currently, FedEx does not offer the ability to select a specific time of day when the delivery will take place. FedEx does offer an option to have a package held at a FedEx Office location for pickup by the recipient. This option may not be available for some ground orders that are delivered instead by USPS. Please contact FedEx at 1-800-GO-FEDEX for specific delivery requests.


Can I use my IT’SUGAR gift card to order online?


Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to accept IT’SUGAR gift cards for an online order at this time, nor do we offer online gift card ordering.  We apologize for the inconvenience!
