IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of the billed/invoiced customer for giving, populating and entering the correct address needed to complete the shipment. Any additional charges, if the address is wrong, needs correction per the shipper, or is returned, refused or otherwise, including reshipping or replacement, is at the cost of you, the billed/invoiced customer. So make sure the address is right. :) Also, please know - once the product is shipped, we cannot change or intercept the shipment as per PirateShip via Shopify.
