We will bill you separately upon shipping your order if a signature proof is requested. Customer must ensure an adult from your school or family is available to receive the order at the time of delivery. Otherwise, FedEx will not release the package and customer will be responsible for extra redelivery charges from FedEx. (Please be advised: If no signature proof is requested, FedEx will leave the package outside of your front door when no one is available to accept the package at the time of delivery. In such case, we will not be responsible for any lost or stolen package when a customer is not choosing signature proof nor being available to receive the package.)
