After your payment is verified, it can still take 1-5 business days to process your order before shipment. This is NOT included in your “Delivery time”.

Delivery may also take longer during holidays or weekends or due to circumstances out of our control.  Once an order is placed and shipped from the supplier, only the courier/shipping company has control of your shipment and we cannot guarantee any time frame for shipping delivery whatsoever.  By placing your order with us, you understand this and accept we have ultimately no control over the shipping and delivery time frame of your purchase.

You agree that even if express shipping is paid for, this in no way guarantees the purchase will be delivered within the 10 working day timeframe due to issues outside of our control.
