How are items delivered?
The delivery is carried out via partners including La Poste in "Colissimo suivi" or "DHL" against signature of the recipient or any person specially mandated.This digitized signature and its reproduction are proof of delivery of the package.
It allows you to choose freely the place where you wish to be delivered:

For parcels delivered to the address of your choice, in case of absence of the recipient of the package at the designated address, a notice of passage and waiting of the package is deposited in the mailbox of the recipient. This notice indicates the coordinates of the Post Office where the recipient can collect the shipment. Any parcel thus placed in the waiting list is handed over to the addressee or his representative, duly authorized for this purpose on presentation of an identity document and against signature. The parcel will be held pending for 15 consecutive days from the day after the notice of pending delivery has been deposited.
In the case of a delivery to a merchant, the product cannot be returned directly to him. The return must be made according to the clauses set out in Article 6.
In case of absence of the recipient of the package, a notice will be left and a new passage will be made the next day. You can change the date of this second passage thanks to your tracking code until 22:30. If during the second visit you are absent, the package will be available for a period of 5 days in a DHL drop-off point.
