Orders can be placed via multiple ways: by including ordering online at www.dess-usa.com, by calling us at 1-855-337-7872, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have office hours from 8am to 4pm PST.
After the completion of an order, customers will receive several emails that contain information pertaining to that order.
The first email is entitled “Your DESS USA Order Confirmation (Order Number)” and is an informative email to notify you that your order was placed; additionally, providing you with the order number and contact information for DESS, should you need it.
The second email is entitled “Welcome to DESS USA” and will contain information on new parts and/or promotions that we will be offering. It will also include our contact information and let you know that your invoice will be sent to you via email that also has a PDF of your invoice attached so that you can easily forward to your accounting department or print out directly.
The third email is entitled “Thank you for shopping with us” and includes the invoice for your order, both in the body of the email and as an attached PDF. This email informs you to contact us if information in the invoice is incorrect. Your invoice/receipt is then provided; listing the parts ordered, the shipping method chosen, and the total of your order. The billing and shipping addresses are listed below the invoice/receipt.
The fourth email is entitled “Shipping & Backorder Information for Order (Number)" and is an informative email to show that your order has shipped. This email first provides the shipping method used and the shipping address that the package is going to. This is followed by a link to the tracking number and a list of the items that were shipped. Lastly, there is a section to show any potential backordered items that did not ship out. These will be listed in red, followed by our policy for backordered items.
It is the customers responsibility to review the order and ensure that all information including shipping address, part number(s), part quantities, and type of shipping information is correct. Customers who waive this confirmation process will not be entitled to claim product shipping errors related to the receipt of incorrect product(s)/address(es). If the information is incorrect it is the customers responsibility to contact DESS USA immediately via phone (855-337-7872) and/or email (email@example.com) informing DESS USA of this for correction. DESS USA will cancel the incorrect order, enter a new one, and email you the renewed invoice for immediate review.
DESS USA, upon generating the shipping information, will email the tracking number and possible backorder information to the customer. There is a link to UPS in the email in which the customer can track the package.
