When you place your order, we send you a confirmation e-mail with your order number. Clicking on that order number will take you to your order status page where you can track the progress of your order.

UPS Mail Innovations shipments can not be tracked Click here for more information.
USPS tracking for international shipments may be limited. See below for more information.
Your confirmation e-mail may have been caught in your spam filter. When searching for your confirmation e-mail, please note that our e-mails include the artist name in the "Subject" fields. So the subject line of a confirmation e-mail would look like this:
Subject: "Artist Name" Order Confirmation (111A111A1)
If you still can't find e-mails from us please contact customer service.
Your parcel may have just recently shipped, and tracking information may not yet have been entered into the system. Please check again in a few hours or the next day. If by then you still don't see any tracking information, please contact customer service
Most U.S. Postal Service First Class International orders can only be tracked until U.S. Postal Service hands over your parcel to the local postal service of the destination country. This is because most foreign postal services don't provide tracking information back to the U.S. Postal Service so the tracking information will most likely be incomplete.
International UPS Mail Innovations orders are not track-able.
You can find local contact information in the Customer Service sections of the appropriate UPS country websites in one of the following regions:

UPS Mail Innovations is a work share partnership of UPS and U.S. Postal Service that allows us to lower your shipping costs, and, in many cases, shorten delivery times. It works like this: UPS Mail Innovations picks up the parcels at our warehouse, processes them, sorts them, and delivers them to your local postal service, which will make the final delivery.
Domestic UPS Mail Innovations orders can be tracked. We'll e-mail you a tracking number on the day your order ships.
International UPS Mail Innovations orders can not be tracked. That's because the postal services in the destination countries usually don't provide tracking information updates back to UPS. We will e-mail you a shipping confirmation e-mail on the day your order ships.
Whenever feasible we aim to deliver your items on the day they are available in stores, provided you ordered early enough to allow for processing and delivery. Please refer to the delivery date estimates during the checkout process.
Most of our larger international orders ship via UPS World Wide Saver (Delivery Duty Paid) or Express Saver (Delivery Duty Paid), which means your total cost includes all duties, customs clearance fees, taxes or VAT, and international UPS freight charges. Your total US $ price is therefore locked in and no additional fees will be due when UPS delivers your parcel. Customs delays are also less likely since UPS handles the clearances on your behalf.
All other international deliver methods do not include these costs, and taxes, duties, and customs fees may be due upon delivery.
Please Note: Unless your order was in US Dollars, GBP, or Euros, the local currency amount charged to your credit card may be slightly different than the amount shown at checkout. That's because the exchange rate may have fluctuated from the day you placed the order to the day we shipped it and charged your credit card with the US $ amount.
Only international orders shipping via UPS Worldwide Saver (Deliver Duty Paid) or Express Saver (Deliver Duty Paid) will include taxes and duties. All other international orders may be subject to taxes, duties, and fees, once they reach your country. We have no control over these charges and they may vary widely from country to country. You, as the importer of record, will have to comply with the laws and regulations of your country and will be responsible for these charges. Please note that customs clearance procedures may cause delivery delays.
These charges may either be due upon delivery, or you may receive a notice asking you to go to your local post office to pay duties/taxes and to pick up your parcel
If you parcel takes longer than estimated, please contact your local post office, your parcel may be held there if customs charges are due.
When your item ships from the E.U. all VAT/taxes and duties are included in your total.
Because of the complex logistics of international shipping, the billing country and the ship-to country have to be the same. We hope to be able to offer this option in the future.

When you’re buying a digital movie as a gift for someone else we’ll send that person an email with a virtually wrapped gift and a personal message from you. With a few clicks the recipient unwraps the gift and adds the movie to her Ultraviolet Collection. The movie will be ready to watch instantly.
UltraViolet is a free cloud-based digital Collection that gives you greater flexibility with how and where you watch the movies and TV shows that you purchase. Once a movie or TV show has been added to your UltraViolet Collection, you will have options to stream it over the internet or download it for offline viewing. Because UltraViolet offers so many viewing choices, you have greater freedom to choose where you want to watch - whether it’s on a mobile device, computer, connected television, game console, etc.
Creating an account is very quick, simple and free. If your friend doesn’t have an account he will be guided through the process after unwrapping her gift in the email we send. It will only take 2-3 minutes, and the movie will be ready to watch or download instantly.
Once your friend has added the movie to her Ultraviolet collection she can either stream it instantly, download and watch it offline, or view it on a variety of different devices and platforms such as Connected TV or Blu-ray player, game console, tablet or smartphone via a number of supporting UltraViolet providers including VUDU, Flixster, and more coming soon.
They will need a working internet connection to redeem the title.
If you have problems redeeming or downloading the movie, click here
If you have problems purchasing a movie gift, click here
To do this, your friend will need to use the Flixster app for iOS and Android devices or you may use the iPad app from VUDU. Both can be found in the iTunes AppStore and the Flixster app for Android can be found in the Play Store. Using these apps requires that you have an account with either Flixster or VUDU. Both Flixster and VUDU support access and playback of UltraViolet titles.
With UltraViolet, this is something you don't have to worry about. UltraViolet is available on such a great variety of connected device types that your friend will not have a problem finding their gift on their connected device of choice.
UltraViolet movies viewed on SonyPicturesStore.com using the computer are offered in the Silverlight format. The most current version of the Silverlight player is required to stream movies on Apple Mac and Windows PCs. Follow this link to upgrade your browser’s Silverlight Player. Movies viewed on SonyPicturesStore.com using the iPad or iPhone are in HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) format, an adaptive streaming communications protocol created by Apple.
The movies can also be watched in other formats depending on the platform being used and the service provider (e.g. Vudu, Flixster, Barnes & Noble, CinemaNow) that you are using.
On a smart phone you can open the email and unwrap the gift, but - at this time - you won’t be able to complete the redemption process.
On a tablet computer you will be able to open the email, unwrap the gift and redeem the movie.
Yes, the email message will include your name which comes from the billing name used.
You can choose the delivery date and time. If you don’t select a delivery time the gift will be sent an hour after you submit your order.
Yes, during the checkout process you can add a personal message.
The email we send will have a picture of a wrapped gift. When your friend tears off the wrapping with her mouse the cover of the movie will be revealed.
You can give any title available on SonyPicturesStore.com, that’s about 500 titles at this time.
Yes, you can send several movies at once. But when the recipient unwraps in the email she will only see the first movie. Once she clicks on “accept the gift” all movies will be added to her UltraViolet account.
The service is only limited to movies at this time.
Yes, after you complete your purchase you can choose your wrapping style.
The gift will be wrapped with a default gift wrap setting.
Your gift will be sent an hour after you purchase it.
Unfortunately, at this time your friend will be unable to return the gift or 're-gift' it to someone else.
As soon as you complete the transaction your card will be charged and you’ll receive an email receipt.
