I RECEIVED THE WRONG PRODUCT, CAN I CHANGE IT??

However please note that images are for reference purposes. Colors may look different depending on your environment or monitor. Leather materials, pattern, logo and etc…may be changed without notice to improve the quality of the products.
WHY DOES INTERNATIONAL REGISTERED AIR MAIL TAKE SO LONG??
Airmail packages aren’t put on the first airplane that’s available. Postal services wait until a reasonably-sized shipping container is filled with items for that destination before they send the container.
If you want your package to go on the next airplane, you have to pay for Special Delivery postal service (Express Mail Service).
Also, bear in mind that the letter may take a few days to get to the shipping center. For example, if you are sending an air mail letter from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada to Perth, Australia, it has to get to Vancouver, then it is flown to Sydney, then it has to cross Australia to Perth. Each of these steps takes time.

I TRACKED MY ORDER, AND IT IS WRITTEN “CUSTOMS RETENTION REASON : INVOICE MISSING”. WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT SHOULD I DO??
Missing invoice is one of the common reasons why a parcel is being held in customs. Though it was retained, it doesn’t mean you’ll pay duty. Just set your expectation that you might pay.
Give customs enough time to examine the package. Most probably, they put it on hold to figure out the actual price of the item. After acquiring enough information, they will evaluate if they should charge tax in your package or not. If they open your package to check the item inside or search for a receipt, they should tag your package as opened or it depends upon their procedure.
If you think it’s taking too long, contact them immediately. If they ask a copy of the receipt, then contact us, and we will send you an invoice as you can send them a copy.
As the item was declared as a gift, customs will not bother to ask a receipt somehow. They will just determine the item value through research or whatever. It still depends on the customs clearance procedure in the destination country.
