Will COVID-19 delay shipping?
Our order processing times are slightly delayed from the COVID-19 pandemic. Most orders will ship within 24-48 hours. However, we are seeing some delays within USPS network which is causing packages to deliver later than usual.
We are unable to issue any refunds or reshipments until 14 days after the ship date. After 14 days, we can reship a new package to you.

How does shipping work?
Our shipping rates are not charged on a per item basis. We base our shipping cost on the weight and location of where the package is shipped to. We do not believe on making money from shipping charges, what we pay is what you'll pay. This way we can keep the cost per carton as low as possible, meaning the more you buy the less it costs per carton to ship. When ordering, please make sure that your billing address corresponds with the billing address your issuing credit card bank has on file for you. Orders will not be shipped until address verification can be obtained. 95% of all orders are shipped within 24hrs. Orders received after 1PM Friday EST. will be processed the following Monday.
