The first stage of Harney & Sons’s dispatch process is order fulfillment. When your order has been Fulfilled it indicates that we have printed your shipping label and packing slip, and are processing the order through the warehouse.

After fulfillment your order is Pending Pickup by the carrier. We will email you the tracking number close to the estimated pickup date. Your tracking number will show a pending status until the carrier scans the order through their nearest shipping hub.

**Please do not be alarmed if USPS indicates an emergency delay while the package is in the Pending Pickup stage. USPS has changed the language on their website and it does not indicate that we have any problems at the warehouse.

Tracking Orders & Shipping FAQS

Increased Transit Time

We appreciate your patience as all of Harney & Sons’s carriers are working through increased package volume along with staffing shortages. Transit time has increased, and long delays without an updated tracking scan are normal as more transportation options like rail and air freight are utilized by our carriers; they are unable to scan packages at every stop along the way to you. We allow 14 days of transit time before a package is considered lost and eligible for replacement in the event that it has stopped scanning.

If your package is returned to Harney & Sons because the address was entered incorrectly or the package was unclaimed, we will gladly reship the package. There will be a $5.50 reshipment fee.
