Our shipping charges are actual for UPS. You are given choices on most orders as to how fast you want the items delivered. We also offer a base Flat Rate Ground for orders under $99.00, and the option for FREE Ground shipping on orders over $99.00 (Continental USA only). The base rates are shown here:
|Order Dollar Value||Shipping Rate|
|$1.00 - $125.00||$7.99 (Lower 48 States - US orders only)|
|$125.00+||FREE Option (Lower 48 States - US orders only)|
We moved to a "Flat Rate" because of the many requests we had from our customers. We understand how tight things are and we wanted to make ordering more economical. With this said, we had to add packaging fees to the larger items. Any items with a packaging fee will have the fee displayed on the product page.
Most orders in before 3:00 PM EST are shipped same day. Orders in after 3:00 will be processed the next business day. Most orders shipped within the continental US will be via UPS ground unless you choose UPS or Fed Ex 3 Day, 2nd day or Express Delivery.
2nd Day Shipping means 2 business days. I.E. an order shipped on Friday would arrive in Tuesday. Express Shipping means the next business day. I.E. an order shipped on Friday would arrive on Monday. Saturday Shipping is available at the express rate + a $12.50 weekend delivery fee. All Saturday deliveries must be arranged over the phone. Saturday shipping is not available online, and not available to all areas.
AK, HI, PR, GU and VI orders can ship US Mail, Fed Ex 2 day or Overnight Express but there are restrictions on pepper spray. There is no ground service offered by UPS to any of these destinations. Because of a flaw with our our cart system, these states will often show $5.00 or less for express shipping. This of course is not actual, but a system flaw that we are working on. What we do in this case is ship the cheapest way we can. In most cases US Mail shipping is not possible for $5.00, so additional shipping is charged. We usually attempt to contact the customer before shipping, but this is not always possible.
Bad addresses, missing apartment numbers, re-routes to another address (your work or a friends house etc.) will result in a service charge. UPS and Fed Ex charge $5.00 for ground corrections and $10.00 for expedited corrections. They charge us, so we will have no choice but to charge you. To avoid any corrections charges please double check your address before you submit your order.
The only real restriction is pepper spray which must ship ground.
Any claims of damage, loss, shortages or missing items must be made within 5 days of receiving the items.
- All orders outside the US are handled on a case by case basis. This is because of various governments and customs regulations worldwide that may prohibit some of our products from crossing their borders. I try my best to get things through discreetly.
- We cannot export stun guns without a license. We will not apply for a license unless there is a large order, and there are no guarantees that the license will be granted. Pepper spray is also a restricted item.
- When I say no guarantees it means that you pay for the item even if it gets confiscated. If they send it back we can try to reship or send you a refund minus shipping charges. I will need to know what you want in order to quote you shipping. Payment will need to made in advance.
- If you are paying by credit card, I prefer American Express or Discover (Novus), but I will take Mastercard or Visa provided you answer all the security questions so that we may verify the billing phone number and shipping address with your bank.
- You also have these payment options available: Western union, international money order, American Express Travelers Checks, cash, bank wire transfer and bank check in US funds as forms of payment.
- There are Western Union offices all over the world, and even online. You can use this link to send payment online: http://www.westernunion.com/ Use our information below to send us a payment.
- You can obtain an international money order or American Express travelers checks from your local bank, we treat them like cash.
- You can send cash, but I recommend you wrap it in an extra sheet of paper so that it does not "get lost" in the mail system. You can also insure we get the letter if you register it.
- If you want to pay with bank wire transfer then email us for our account information. There is a $10.00 additional bank charge to wire us money.
- You also have the option of sending a bank check in US funds, but that will cost you an extra $15.00 for processing. It is the fee my bank charges me.
- To get our mail in form go to: http://www.selfdefenseproducts.com/faxmail.htm
- On this page you can type in your info and then print it out. You can also go through the site and check out online. You may find the shipping charges a bit high. This is because the prices listed are actual UPS foreign rates. I can usually ship cheaper, but I will let you know this once we correspond through email.
