Orders should be placed online at www.DESS-USA.com. Your email is your login and you can create your own password. All order and tracking information is sent to the same email that is your login. After the completion of an order, you will receive 2 emails that contain information pertaining to that order.
The first email you receive is from orders@DESS®.com. The subject line states "Order Invoice from DESS® - [Invoice #]". This email includes an invoice for your order, both in the body of the email and as an attached PDF. There are details regarding canceling the order, shipping deadlines, and other pertinent information.
It is the customers responsibility to review this information and ensure it is correct. If the information is not correct, then please notify DESS® via email at service@DESS®.com to cancel the order. We will respond to your email informing you that we received your cancellation request and will cancel the order.
We cannot change any aspect of the order nor combine shipping on orders. The customer is responsible to enter the new/replacement order. If you are not receiving the email from orders@DESS®.com please check your spam or trash folder. This information is also contained in the Order History in your account.
Once the order is packaged and label generated you will receive the second email from email@example.com.
The subject line states DESS® [Invoice #] Shipping & Tracking [Tracking #] - for example DESS® 100044455 Shipping and Tracking 1Z81F1390191854324.
This email has 3 parts:
- Information about when your order will be picked up by UPS and scanned. Prior to UPS picking up and scanning, no tracking information is available. You will receive an automated email from Route, our shipping protection and tracking provider.
- What the shipment includes; these are the items that are in the package and being shipped to you.
- Backorder Information; located under the "Notes" section all backordered items are in red and state "Backordered" below. There is further information regarding Backorders including when the items will be potentially available, how we ship backorders, and what other options you have. Please read this information.
If one of your items ordered is on backorder, you will receive a third email informing you that you have a backorder and which parts are backordered.
If you are not receiving the email from firstname.lastname@example.org, please check your spam or trash folder. This information is also contained in the Order History in your account.
Order and Shipping Terminology
Once an order is created the status of the order is Awaiting Fulfillment. This means we have not packaged and generated a label for this order. Once this is done a UPS tracking number will be created. You will be able to use Route webpage or app to track your order once it is scanned by UPS.
Since the packages are picked up after 3pm Pacific/6pm Eastern we suggest waiting to check the tracking on the package.
If there is no update regarding the tracking it can mean one of the following:
- The packaged has not been picked up by UPS.
- The entire order is on backorder and if this is the case you will receive an email from shipping@DESS®.com notifying you of this. Please check your email since we will send one notifying you.
- The package may inadvertently not be scanned by UPS or is in the process of being scanned.
If the status of the order is Backorder this means that the entire order is on backorder. Please see the section Backorders below for more information.
We encourage you to look at your emails prior to contacting DESS® and look at the tracking information on both Ship Station link and UPS before contacting us since all the information regarding your shipment is contained there.

We are not able to add to existing orders nor are able to combine shipping on orders. We ask that you have us cancel the orders and you can place a new one online.
