Shipping Policy

Order Processing

Orders are processed and shipped during our business hours Monday through Friday (with exceptions for holidays). Many of our orders can be processed and shipped within one to four business days. We try to provide same day shipping for all orders received before the cutoff time shown on our site upon checkout. In the event the order is not available for shipment within four business days, the buyer will be notified by email.

  • Expedited Services: Any orders using expedited shipping services options must be received before the cutoff time found on our site to be eligible for same day shipping. Orders placed after the cutoff time will be shipped the following business day. Expedited shipping options will only be presented on our site if all the items on the order are eligible.

Taxation & Customs

All orders which are eligible for taxing of merchandise or shipping will have the appropriate amount calculated and reflected upon checkout after the buyer has provided the shipping location.

Shipments Returned to Sender

If for any reason order’s shipment is returned to us via return to sender (RTS), the buyer is responsible to pay additional shipping fees, or we will issue a refund minus the original shipping and handling fees. This includes packages which are marked as undeliverable, refused packages, etc.

 

Back-orders

We do our best to maintain an adequate amount of inventory for the thousands of products we offer. In some cases, increased demand or manufacturer delays may cause deficiencies in our inventory resulting in back-orders. Back-ordered items can usually be restocked within 2-3 weeks. Once an item has been restocked, we will ship the order on the next business day.

 

Unexpected Shipping Rates

Shipping costs often fluctuate. If for any reason the amount provided upon checkout is less than the amount required to ship the order, the buyer will be notified and asked for approval of the higher charges prior to shipping.
