What are the shipping methods?
PrimitiveRecordings.com ships via US Postal Service and our shirts usually ship directly from the printers via DHL.

How much does shipping cost?
Shipping cost depends on the options you choose, the size and weight of your item(s), and the location of the order destination. To estimate shipping costs, place all the desired item(s) in your cart and then proceed to checkout. Once you are on the Shipping page, under Rates, you can select the desired shipping option and the associated estimated cost.

How long does it Processing and Shipping take?
PrimitiveRecordings.com processes and ships out packages Monday-Friday; we are not open to process or deliver any packages during the weekend. These are guidelines and processing could take two weeks or more during a sale.
USPS First Class is 7-10 business days
USPS Priority Mail takes within 1-3 business days for shipping
USPS Media Mail & USPS Parcel Post These are considered non rush orders and can take 1 to 4 weeks.
USPS International mail can take anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks depending on your country and method of shipment.
Please note: Do not consider the day an order is placed as day one. Begin counting from the next business day to get an accurate expectation of delivery time. If we’re running a sale expect small delays.

** PrimitiveRecordings.com is not responsible for shipment delays that might occur. Customers are encouraged to plan ahead when placing the orders online. **

What happens if my package is lost or damaged?
If you receive a damaged package, contact us using the contact page on the site. There is only a three day grace period once the item has been received. From there we will submit a claim for a damaged package that takes 5-8 business days for processing. Orders shipped via USPS will require 3-5 business days to process. You have a choice to either receive a refund or a replacement for the package. Primitive Recordings is NOT responsible for lost, stolen, or abandoned packages. Primitive Recordings is not responsible for any shipping factors beyond our control (like customs confiscation, etc.).

What happens if my shipment is missing items?
If the package appears to have been tampered with or is simply missing items, please submit a new Trouble Ticket from your My Account section or contact us using the contact page.

How do I track my package?
A tracking number will be provided via email once an order has been shipped out. After receiving the tracking number, log in to the site and go to My Orders section to track your package.

Why do I have multiple tracking numbers?
A couple reasons this can occur. If you order “Made to Order” items that ship direct to you from our print suppliers and you order “In Stock” items that we ship from here you will get a USPS shipping number and a DHL shipping number for the two separate packages that go out. You also might get additional tracking numbers if your item ships via DHL and is eventually handed off to the USPS to make the final delivery. In those cases it’s the same tracking number you just plug it into USPS’ tracking link on their site instead of the DHL one.

Can I modify my order during shipment?
Once an order is processing/packaged, we cannot modify or cancel any orders. We also cannot re-route or modify any packages once the order has been shipped out.
If you no longer want your order, you can refuse the package upon delivery. For further details on refunds, please visit our Return Policy Page.

Does PrimitiveRecordings.com offer will call?
Unfortunately we do not offer will call at this time. All online orders must be shipped out using any one of the shipping methods offered.

What if I order something and it is out of stock?
While this is rare as we like to keep our inventory tidy, it can happen. You will be contacted if this occurs and be offered the opportunity to make a substitution. If you wish, on large orders (over 50 CDs, or if you are ordering several copies of a title) you might want to list an alternatives in the additional comments box.

Can I pick up my order if I’m in Las Vegas?
PrimitiveRecordings.com does not operate a storefront at this time and all orders must be placed online and shipped out. We may offer a local Las Vegas delivery service for a fee in the future.
