 Who Ships my order?

  • "Quick Ship" items on our website are shipped directly from Sun Diego. Items that aren't marked as "Quick Ship" are sent directly from the manufacturer/brand.

    Can I get faster shipping?

    • Right now all orders placed on our site are shipped via ground. 
    • Why? Because some orders are being shipped directly from the Brand(s) we want to make sure no mistakes happen. Ground is the safest way to make sure you get what you order. As soon as faster options become available we will let you know.
    • If you are in a rush just shoot us an email at and we will do our best to get it to you as quickly as possible.

    What if the item I ordered is not what I received?

    • Unfortunately mistakes do happen and we will do whatever we can to make it right.
    • Email with your order number so we can make things right as soon as possible.

    What if I received an Out of Stock email?

    • This means that one of the brands you ordered from did not actually have it in stock. You will not be charged for any items that don’t ship to you.
    • Exchange Collective monitor our brands inventory on a regular basis to keep our online inventory up to date. In the rare case a brand does run out of an item you will automatically receive a refund.
