Orders placed with shipping methods of Ground, First Class or Priority Mail usually ship within 1-2 business days*. Orders placed requesting UPS 2nd DAY AIR** or UPS NEXT DAY AIR** will ship out the same business day if placed by 1 pm Eastern Time - if received after 1 pm Eastern Time, the order will ship the following business day. Please make sure you provide correct information when placing your order - most importantly the billing address for the credit card as well as the shipping address. These are the most common items that cause a delay in shipment. Although we may have received your order by 1 pm (for AIR shipping methods), if we are unable to process the order and need to contact you for further information and/or verification of the order, we need to be able to hear back from you by 1 pm, otherwise the order will not ship until the following business day (provided we have received the information needed from you to finish processing the order). We do not refund shipping if your order is delayed in shipment due to incomplete, missing, or incorrect information.
* IMPORTANT NOTE: Ship day means the day your order ships out - not when it will be delivered to you. For example, if you place an order on a Monday, your order should ship (not be delivered) no later than Tuesday. Your order will then be delivered to you dependent on the shipping method you chose during check out.
**Excludes Pepper Spray - These items cannot ship via 2nd or NEXT DAY AIR - for more info, please visit our Shipping Restrictions page.
