Ordering & Shipping FAQ
What happens after I place my order AND When will I receive my order?
Step 1 - Order is Placed - We will confirm receipt of your order via an email confirmation. This contains essential information including your order number which is how we identify your order. This email also contains a link to your order status page which our customer support team will use to provide processing details and updates if needed.
Step 2 - ChristmasTreeHill.com will Process your Order & Prepare for UPS, FedEx, or USPS Pickup - Once we receive your order, we will begin processing your order. Allow at least 3 to 8 business days (Monday-Friday) for your order to process and ship out of our Christmas Tree Hill Distribution Facility in York, PA 17403. Please note collectibles, limited edition product, and other specialty and seasonal product may require extra time to retrieve from other Christmas Tree Hill locations and consolidate at our York, PA Distribution Facility before we can ship your order. We will process your payment only when your entire order is ready to ship. After payment and order processing is completed, your order is picked up by UPS or USPS for delivery to your ship-to address.
Step 3 - Order Delivery to Your Ship Destination by UPS, FedEx, or USPS - You will receive a Tracking Number in a Shipment Notification email from Christmas Tree Hill. Once the order leaves our Distribution Facility, you can view the shipping progress via UPS, FedEx, or USPS tracking on their websites. To track orders shipped, visit our Track an Order page for UPS, FedEx, or USPS Tracking links.

When will an out-of-stock item be back in-stock?
Shipments arrive weekly, and we work to restock our items as quickly as possible. However, we are unable to provide specific arrival timelines nor guarantee when items will arrive due to the nature of the products that we sell including collectibles, limited edition product, other specialty and seasonal product, and other factors onside of our control.
We use the availability section on each item page just below the price to communicate the stock situation. Please bookmark the out-of-stock item page(s) that you are interested in and check back on that page for the latest availability. We typically update availability once a week. If an item is still on the website, we do expect it to return at a future date. If we remove an item from the website, it has been discontinued and will not be in-stock again.
Emails sent to email@example.com regarding in-stock updates or asking for specific detail on timelines will receive a reply that echoes the above information. From October 1 - December 31, we may be unable to respond to emails asking for stock updates or "when will this arrive" updates due to the high volume of orders that we process and ship every day.
Do you offer any coupons or free shipping?
We do offer coupons from time to time, but we do not offer any site-wide coupon or free freight deal. To stay in touch on future promotions, please visit our Stay In Touch page on ChristmasTreeHill.com.

What should I do if my package appears to be missing, lost or stolen?
After Christmas Tree Hill ships your order, you should expect to receive 2 emails from email@example.com, a shipping notification email (your order has been shipped) and a delivery notification email (your order was delivered to the ship-to address on your order confirmation). These emails are sometimes caught in email spam filters, so please double-check your spam/junk folders.
If you determine after reviewing the UPS, FedEx, or USPS order tracking page that your package is stuck in-transit, lost, or showing as delivered and you do not have the package(s), please follow the below instructions based on the carrier that delivered your shipment:
USPS: Contact your local USPS post office as they will be able to confirm that your package was in fact delivered. USPS requires a grace period of 7 days after the delivery date to start a missing mail or lost package search. If you haven’t received your package with this 7-day period, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit the USPS Missing Mail page for more information on USPS Missing Mail
FedEx: FedEx can start a lost package search 24 hours after your delivery notification. If you still haven’t received your package within that timeframe, please contact us at email@example.com.
UPS: UPS can start a lost package search 24 hours after your delivery notification. If you still haven’t received your package within that timeframe, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Missing package searches usually take 1-3 business days to complete. If successful, your package will typically be delivered within 1-7 business days. If unsuccessful, we will notify you of the next steps (if any). Please understand that we are unable to ship out replacements or reship a missing package until the missing package search is completed by the carrier, as packages are typically found and delivered.
Christmas Tree Hill is not responsible for lost or stolen packages once the shipment leaves our facility. Christmas Tree Hill is not responsible for replacing lost or stolen packages or covering the costs of any future orders to replace a lost or stolen package.
