Shipping & Returns
Shipping Update, April 2020: When you place an order on KateSomerville.com, know that we are doing our best to fulfill and ship your order at the earliest possible delivery date. However, you may experience a shipping delay due to the safety measures in place at our distribution centers based on the CDC’s recommendations.
If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com
From the US, we currently ship to addresses within the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. Territories) and Canada.
At Kate Somerville, we’re on track to use 100% recyclable packaging by 2025. When you buy from us, you join us in taking a stand for a more sustainable future for the people, the planet, and for future generations.
We package your order with the intent of safely shipping to you while minimizing waste and improving recyclability. In 2018, we stopped using plastic packing materials. In 2019, we reduced the size of outbound shipping boxes and switched to recycle-able paper.
Please allow up to 48 hours for your order to be processed.
In most instances, if your order is placed before 11am PT on a weekday, we'll ship it out that same day. If your order is placed after 11am PT on a weekday or if your order is placed on a weekend or holiday, we'll ship it out the next possible business day.
In rare instances, we can experience backlogs at our warehouse that result in shipping delays of up to a full business day.

My package says it was left at a parcel locker:
When packages exceed a certain size, mail carriers will place the package in a parcel locker. A parcel locker is located at your community mail boxes. You will find a key in your mailbox with the locker number on it. Your package is in there. If you don't have community mailboxes or no key was left, check with your mail carrier, post office, or leasing office to ask where it was left. You can also contact the United States Postal Service at 1-800-275-8777.

Please follow the steps below to ensure proper returns processing:
- Customers in the US can request and print a Prepaid Return Shipping Label directly through their Order Status page. Simply log-in or check your order status to request and print a return label. Returns sent using a method other than our provided Prepaid Return Shipping Label may experience processing delays. A Prepaid Return Shipping Label is not available for merchandise returns from Canada.
- Carefully pack the products to prevent damage during transit, seal the package and place the Prepaid Return Shipping Label on the outside of the box.
- Take the package to your local UPS Store or UPS drop box. All returns must be dropped off at a UPS Store or drop box location within 2 weeks from the receipt date of your Prepaid Return Label. Your return will be shipped to:

- Please utilize our provided Prepaid Return Shipping Label. Only returns that can be traced back to our warehouse will be credited. Returns sent using a method other than our provided Prepaid Return Shipping Label which cannot be tracked in the case of loss, will not be refunded. Returns from Canada should be shipped via an insured shipping method which can be tracked in the case of loss.
Returns are processed within 5-7 business days of receipt. Refunds to your original form of payment can take up to 30 days depending on your bank’s policies. We apologize that the original shipping and handling fees (and return shipping and handling fees for Canadian customers) are not refundable.
