Example,For 2 Day shipping, if you order on a Friday before 1:00PM, your order will usually be shipped same day and be delivered on Tuesday of the next week. Tuesday is the 2nd business day after Friday.
We try to send an email with the tracking number to you whenever possible. The tracking number is not generated until the package is scanned into the shipper's (UPS or USPS) system. This occurs after the package is loaded onto the truck out of here.
There are normal circumstances when a tracking number is occasionally not sent. Email us and we will try and get that information to you as quickly as we can.
If you are shipping to an address that is different than the credit card's billing address you should call your credit card issuing bank (the credit card issuing bank's 800 phone number is on the back of every credit card) and add the address where you want orders "SHIPPED TO" as an "ALTERNATE SHIPPING ADDRESS".
This will only add an extra shipping address to your credit card file. This will not change your billing address. Not having an alternate shipping address on file could delay your order.
Avoid the issue entirely by shipping to your billing address.
