Q: When will my order ship?

A: We aim to process orders in one to two days of the purchase date, although at busy times we may take up to one working week (5 days).


Q: What is the cut off time for same day shipping?

A: To ensure that your order ships on the same day of purchase, the order must be placed before noon. Additionally, please add a note indicating that your order needs to go out on the same day of purchase. This only applies to FedEx shipping orders.


Q: What are my shipping options?

A: We are now offering USPS for domestic shipping within the United States and overseas. We also offer FedEx Express for all of our shipments within the US and use FedEx International Priority for our shipments abroad. 

The FedEx International Priority transit times to Europe for example are about a week. However the USPS International shipping times are likely to take up to a month or longer. We advise you only select USPS International shipping if you are not in a hurry to receive your hardware. Please remember that most international shipments take a little time going through customs. Overseas customers may be eligible to pay local customs or duty charges; these are not included in your payment to us.

When placing an order with FedEx please include your phone number, FedEx requires it to ensure the delivery of your order.
