What are Phone Grips?
A Phone Grip is a grip/stand for your phone, your tablets, and e-readers for some additional comfort while reading, viewing, or browsing. Phone Grips are made to be sticky, and they are most compatible with smooth, flat surfaces. Phone Grips will not stick to silicone, highly textured, and many soft cases on the market. The Phone Grip once fixed on the phone/phone case, should not be removed. Once removed, the Phone Grip may lose its adherence.

It's been over 4 weeks but I have not received my order and the tracking hasn't been updated for a while. How do I locate my package?
If you are facing this issue, you've likely opted for Standard Shipping. If you haven't received your order after 3 weeks, here are a few things you can do:
1. No need to panic: In our experience, 9 times out of 10, your package has already reached your local post office. The Post Office has probably even attempted to deliver it to you but simply missed you when you were out running errands or at work. In such cases, your package will remain in your local Post Office, waiting for you to claim it for up to 14 days. After 14 days, the package will return back to us.
2. Locate and contact your local post office: You can look this up on Google. Usually, Post Offices in almost every country have a Customer Care helpline. Some even provide email assistance. Make sure you have your tracking number handy when you contact the post office. When your order ships, Popate sends you a shipping confirmation email. The tracking number for your package is usually in this email.
3. Contact Popate via email here.
It's been over 4 weeks, I have not received my order. Can I get a reshipment or a refund?
