EARGAUGES.NET Policies & Frequently Asked Questions

Packaging and Return Instructions

We do not accept any returns or exchanges on products already mailed out due to sanitation regulations. Once a product is shipped out, we have to assume it has been worn for the safety of all EarGauges.net customers .Sorry for the inconvenience. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!

At Eargauges.net, we take great pride in our reputation for quality plugs for an excellent cost. All of our jewelry is unworn, and due to sanitary reasons, we cannot accept returns on any orders unless there is a problem with the jewelry.

We want our customers to be happy, but it is your responsibility to order the right gauge/size.  If you are not sure of your gauge/size, please visit your local tattoo/piercing shop and they can definitely help you out.

If you do have a problem or defect with your plugs, please e-mail us or use the contact form on the contact page within 3 days of receiving the shipment. Make sure to include your name, order number, and issue in the e-mail, and we gladly fix the problem.

How do I track my order?

After your order has been shipped, you should receive an e-mail confirming shipment has taken place. Every order is issued a delivery confirmation number for your convenience.

USA orders- The delivery confirmation number will allow you to track your package as it travels across the US.

International orders- The delivery confirmation number will allow you to know we shipped your package in good faith. However, it will most likely not be updated through customs. This is the only way we can ship for a low cost to our international (including Canada) orders.
