Shipping to Multiple Locations
Unfortunately, we cannot split up an order and ship to multiple locations. If you wish to send items to different locations, you will need to place a separate order for each shipping address.
Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to change the shipping address once an order goes into processing. If you have caught your mistake directly after purchase, please contact us via email or phone and we will try to accommodate the address change if we are able.
