Sono Herbs is not responsible for delivery after proof of shipment. That responsibility is transferred to the shipping courier. If your package says delivered, but isn’t at your address, then please contact the post office that services your address and submit a mail search request before contacting us. USPS often marks the package as delivered before it actually happened, and it showed up on the next available delivery day. When this doesn’t happen, a mail search request usually turns it up, but please note that once we provide proof of shipment, our side of the transaction is finished. We can’t provide you any info that the tracking number in the shipping confirmation email can’t provide you.
I would like to order but I am cautious about missing mail or mail theft, what should I do?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request Insurance, Registered Mail Service, or Signature at Delivery for an additional fee, or for us to advice you on the best shipping option. As shipping issues are out of our hands once the package is shipped we would love to make sure your delivery is as stress-free as possible. Please note the only way to get compensation for a package that has been sent out by us but not received by the customer is by insuring your package.
What does it mean when tracking says my order is in “pre-shipment”?
Pre-shipment is all the time between us printing your shipping label and the shipping courier scanning the package once it reaches their facility. This includes any time it takes us to prepare and pack your order before sending it out. Please note that USPS does not scan packages as soon as they receive them. Sometimes there is an additional wait before the package registers in their system.

Nicotine addictions may seem impossible to overcome, but many people point to herbal cigarettes as a major tool to combat their addiction. During nicotine withdrawal, you can experience an intense desire to smoke. Herbal cigarettes provide a way to satisfy that urge, but with herbs that are natural and non-habit forming.
