Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


How long will delivery take? When will my package arrive?

If you order a PDF package, you will receive your documents directly after your order. In case of a physical package you will also receive a preliminary PDF version of your documents directly after your order and we will print and ship your package the next business day. The delivery time of FedEx Express depends on the delivery country. You can see an overview here: Delivery times. Shipments sent by FedEx Express can be tracked electronically using the tracking link you receive from us. Extraordinary events (e.g. weather conditions, pandemics, etc.) can affect delivery times. Unfortunately, we have no control over this. Deliveries to countries outside of the European Union may be subject to customs duties, which the countries' authorities will collect directly from the customer.

Can the star naming package be delivered via express delivery service?

Yes, we send out all orders within one business day after we have received the full payment and your package is usually shipped with FedEx Express. A PDF download of the documents is instantly available after placing an order.

With which shipping service providers will my order be delivered?

We send all physical packages with FedEx Express.

What happens if I am not at home when the delivery is made?

Our delivery partners typically make at least one delivery attempt at the recipient's address. If delivery is unsuccessful, the shipment can be picked up at a branch or from a neighbor. In both cases, you should be informed of the whereabouts of your shipment by post via our delivery partner. If you have received a tracking number from us, you can also track your shipment electronically. If you require any changes to the delivery location after shipment, please contact FedEx Express directly.

Can I buy a star on invoice or pay cash on delivery?

No, we only accept prepayment. However, Paypal might offer you its own pay later service.

Do you have a domestic account I can transfer my money to?

No, unfortunately, as a German company it is not so easy to open a foreign bank account in every country. However, you can transfer the invoice amount to our German bank account, if you cover all bank fees. It is important that we receive the full invoice amount after the bank fees! Alternatively, you can use one of our many other payment options, which do not incur any additional fees for you.

What is the "date of naming" of a star?

For some products it is possible to assign the naming date of a star. This date can be both in the future and in the past. For example, it can be a date of birth of a person, an anniversary, or any other date you want.

I have not received an order confirmation. Have you received my order?

Please check the spam folder in your email inbox first. The order confirmation may have been routed there. It is also possible that you mistyped your email address. Send us an email with as much information about your order as possible. We can then send you another order confirmation email manually.

I made a mistake when typing the name/date/dedication. Could you send me the certificate again?

Please always check your order confirmation and the PDF download of your documents! All the information you have provided is summarized there. In case of change requests, please contact our customer service immediately by e-mail. Prompt change requests before printing or shipping of your package are possible without any issues. After that, unfortunately, change requests can only be carried out for a processing fee and additional shipping costs.

Can I change anything in my order (e.g. delivery address) after it has been placed?

As long as your order has not been processed, you can send us your changes by e-mail.

Can I cancel my order?

Star naming products are excluded from the right of withdrawal, because they are personalized products.

The delivery is incomplete. Can you deliver the missing part?

Of course! We apologize, if we occasionally forget to pack something and we try our best to avoid that. Send us an email with your order number and the item that is missing and we will deliver it immediately.

How do I reach customer service?

You can reach the customer service at info@starling.global. On working days you will always receive a response to your request within 24 hours.

How can I find my star?

´╗┐You can find your personal registration in our international Starling Star Registry - one of the largest star registries in Europe. You can easily access your registration via the link in our dispatch confirmation or via the QR code on your certificate. Alternatively, you can also enter your individual registration number, which you will find on your certificate, manually. With the help of our web app, you can now try to find the corresponding star in the night sky.

Some of our star naming packages include a star map and instructions, which you can also use to find your star manually. However, it is possible that your constellation is not visible at the moment. Not every constellation is visible at all times of the year and from everywhere on Earth. If you have any questions about the visibility of a particular constellation, please contact our customer service.

Is the star name scientifically recognized?

Stars have been renamed again and again throughout history and unfortunately there is no unified scientific directory. Today there are many scientifically recognized catalogues such as the Hipparcos catalog (HIP) and the Henry-Draper catalog (HD). However, in both catalogs the stars are named only by numbers and the naming has only a purely symbolic meaning, just like your personal star naming. Our service is to create an unforgettable gift package for the recipient, which emphasizes the uniqueness of a person. In addition, since there are many star naming services providers in the world, it is also impossible to guarantee that a star, no matter how small, will be named only once in the world. Do not trust any provider who claims the opposite and advertises with an official star naming!
