Receiving your order
1. Can orders be combined?
Yes. Just tell us if an order should not be shipped and we will hold it in our warehouse until you decide otherwise. This can be done by either emailing us or by adding a comment in the notes box during the checkout process.
Multiple orders can also be shipped as one thus saving on shipping fees. This is done by default (for example if someone places multiple orders for example during a weekend. The shipping fees' difference will be automatically be refunded in reward points should the person keeps an account at the48ers.com. Reward points can then be used a discount in the next order.

Orders can be tracked via the tracking ID that all shipping methods offer. After we ship an order an email with the tracking ID is sent. The tracking ID can be found as per the screen shot below:

4. The order is delayed...
Please check both the Cyprus Post (https://www.cypruspost.post/en...) as well as the destination country's National Postal Service online tracking tool for an updated status.
In some countries, a notification (SMS or paper note) is sent to the recipient for picking the parcel up from a designated point. In some cases this notification is not delivered / lost so please ensure that you regularly check for update via he inline tracking tools. Most of the Postal Services around the world will ship back the parcel if not collected within a period of time.
We would be happy to help if significant delays take place, the item went missing or the item is shipped back.
Note 1: "Larnaka" is the last point of scan prior the order is shipped to the destination country. From that point onwards the order will be in transit and will be scanned again at the entry point in the destination country
Note 2: There are countries (e.g. Australia, Canada etc.) that they do not provide visibility of the delivery progress once the parcel enters their territory. In this case, please call or visit the neighboring post office branch and ask an update using the tracking ID we provided.
Note 3. In some rare cases, Cyprus Post ships via a transit country. In this case please expect further delays.
