The fulfillment process for most orders of in-stock items begins as soon as your online purchase is completed. These items will be shipped once your payment is approved and the shipping address is verified.
Pre-ordered items are not yet in stock, but available for advanced order on francesvalentine.com. A pre-ordered item is shipped directly to your chosen shipping address once it’s in stock. As with all purchases on francesvalentine.com, the amount of the order/shipment will be pre-authorized and therefore not charged until it is shipped to you. Often we are reliant upon our suppliers in Italy and Spain for the integrity of expectant dates and other information as to when we would be able to ship a pre-ordered item to you. It is with our assurance that as soon as an item is received in our warehouse it will ship as priority to all pre-ordered customers within 1 – 2 business days. After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method you had previously selected during checkout and the location of your shipping address. Should you have further inquiries regarding the processing of specific pre-ordered items please do not hesitate to contact us.
