Shipping and Delivery

Shipping Options & Charges

What shipping options are available?

Our products are delivered by Front Door Parcel Delivery to your shipping address. Available couriers include: USPS, UPS, and FedEx.
Please note: It’s taking longer than usual to get orders to customers. But don’t worry—the estimated delivery date provided at checkout reflects any known delays. Thank you for your patience.

How do you calculate shipping and processing charges?

Shipping and processing charges are based on the total weight and dimensions of the merchandise.

The standard was created to increase controls around payment data to reduce fraud. If you want to sell online and accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover, your software and hosting needs to be PCI compliant.

From annual on-site assessments validating compliance to continuous risk management, we work hard to keep our shopping cart and ecommerce hosting secure.”
