Order History

Can I view my orders online?

To view all orders you’ve previously placed online, simply log in and select View Orders in your account.

What does it mean if my order is ‘Processing’?

If your order is Processing, our warehouse is in the process of picking and packing your parcel. Your order will show as processing until it is dispatched and on its way to you. At this point, the status will change to Dispatched and, if you placed your order online, you’ll be able to track your delivery.

Contact Us

What does it mean if my order is ‘Dispatched’?

If your order is Dispatched, your parcel has been picked and packed, and has either left the warehouse or will be leaving shortly.

Your order will have been assigned a tracking number, which you can use to track your order if it was placed online.

Contact Us

What does it mean if my order is ‘Cancelled’?

If you’ve been in touch and requested that we cancel an order prior to dispatch, your Order Status will show as Cancelled, and the Order Item Status will show as Refunded.

Contact Us

What does it mean if my order is ‘Refunded’?

If you’ve returned an item to us, once it’s arrived back in our warehouse and a refund has been applied, it will show as Refunded. You may also see this if you’ve been in touch and requested that we cancel an order prior to dispatch.

In View Orders, your Order Status will show as Cancelled, and the Order Item Status will show as Refunded.

Contact Us

What does it mean if my order is ‘On Hold’?

If you order is showing as On Hold, there might be an issue with your order e.g. a PO Box number might be present in your address.

We will either contact you directly so you can provide us with an alternative address or, if that’s not possible, we’ll cancel the order and let you know in writing or by email.

Contact Us

What does it mean if my order is ‘Backordered’?

You’ll find up-to-date stock information on each product page before you add an item to your shopping bag.

The stock grid will show a green tick if the product is in stock or due in the next 4 days; a red tick if the item is low on stock; a number highlighting how many weeks are left until an item is back in stock; or a cross if it simply isn’t available.

If a product isn’t in stock but will be in the number of weeks specified on the stock grid, your Order Status will show as Backordered. It may be that only one item in your order is due in at a later date, but the entire order will show as Backordered until all items are dispatched.

If a delayed item is due in the next few days, we will hold your whole order so that we can send if out to you in one parcel.

Your Order Status will update to Processing then, when the order is dispatched, we’ll send you an email to let you know that it’s on its way.

Contact Us

Why am I seeing a message saying that an item is unavailable in My Orders?

If an item has become unavailable since you placed your order, it will show as Unavailable, but don’t worry, it’s only to let you know that it’s no longer available to buy. It won’t affect your order if you’ve already purchased the item.

Why haven't I received a password reminder email?

If you’ve requested a reset link for your password, it should arrive in your inbox almost immediately. However, if after an hour the email still hasn’t come through, please check the following before trying again.

1. Check that the email hasn’t gone into your Spam or Junk folder. Sometimes, important emails can be redirected there by mistake, despite not being junk emails.

2. Check that you’ve entered the correct email address. Please double check that you entered the correct address, taking care with spelling and simple errors e.g. .co.uk instead of .com

3. Check that your inbox isn’t full. If you have too many emails in your inbox, your email provider may sometimes prevent you from receiving any new emails.

4. Add e-mail@cottontraders.com to your safe senders list. Adding our email address to your safe senders list will ensure that our emails are never blocked or sent to your spam or junk folders. If you’re not sure how to add an email address to your safe senders list, please consult your email provider for more information.

If you’ve tried all of the above but still aren’t able to receive your reset password link, please use the Contact button below to get in touch with our Customer Care Team, including as many details as you can about the issue.

I'm having trouble with the password I was sent

How do I unlock my account

Your security is very important to us and, in order to keep your personal information private and protected, your account has been locked. This may be due to multiple failed log in attempts.

Why can't I register two passwords against the same email address?

We ask each customer to create one password for each unique email address. This keeps your personal information safe and secure, and ensures that the correct customer receives the right confirmation email, password reset link and any emails we send that relate to their account.

The easiest way to register two customers at the same address with different passwords is to create a second account with a different email address. If you don’t have a second email address, you can set one up either through your own service provider or quickly and easily using services like Gmail and Yahoo Mail.
