Before taking steps to solve your issue, check out the most common reasons your package was delivered to the wrong address in the table below:
|You recently moved||If you moved and forgot to update your address, the courier most likely dropped off the package at your previous residence. To update it:

- Go to Your Orders
- Choose the order you want to track
- Click on Track Package
- See if your neighbors received it in your stead—There’s a chance that your package was misdelivered to your neighbor. You should check with them before you decide to take further action
