PIXMANIA-PRO will strive to respect the stated delivery times, but cannot be held liable for interest and damages because of late delivery and cannot accept the cancellation of an order on that basis.

An enquiry will be opened with the carrier. This may several days. Please enclose proof of ID and a sworn statement stating the delivery address and declaring that the parcel has not been received.
