Since our website and service are based on English, all the information that you typed in is required to be English input method, including punctuations. If certain letters of your address contain Non-English letters, you are advised to use the similar English ones instead.


Can I change my shipping address after placing an order?

Please be advised that your shipping address cannot be revised after the order has been processed or shipped.
