When will I receive my order?

Processing Time

Orders placed before Midnight ET will begin processing the next business day and will ship within 5 business days of order placement unless the item you ordered is out of stock.  Customer care will contact you regarding out of stock items and how long it will take to ship the product. 


After processing is complete and the order has shipped, the delivery date is determined by the speed of the shipping method used.  If you opted for free standard shipping, it will take anywhere from 2 to 5 days for your product to arrive.  If you choose to pay for an upgraded service, the transit time will be a function of the service you choose and pay for.  For example, Next-Day Shipping means you will receive your order 1 business day after your order has finished processing.
