Shipping Costs

Shipping costs are calculated during checkout based on weight, dimensions and destination of the items in the order. Payment for shipping will be collected with the purchase.

This price will be the final price for the shipping cost to the customer.

Order Processing Times

Orders are processed mostly by Suppliers via our fulfillment and shipping network except in some cases in which orders may be processed directly by our Order Team. This will be stated on the affected Product pages. As such, stock quantities may not always be accurate and up-to date, and Vendors or our Order API may not always be able to fulfill all Orders.

In such scenarios, we will release the Authorization Charges. We charge you when we begin processing the order for shipment. When you place an Order, we simply place an Authorization charge to ensure funds will be available when we begin processing your Order.

The Order team will normally process your Order within 5 business days (Monday through Friday), although Order Processing may take up to a week or more (especially for International orders). Be sure to check the full listing on the Product Page to see the Ship Durations and Order Processing Times where stated for more specific order processing times.

Order Statuses

When you place an Order on the site, it will under-go any one or all of the Order Status that Vendors or our Order API may classify your Order under. We’ve listed the Major Order Status below.

Pending Payment

This status usually indicates that the payment for your order is awaiting approval or confirmation from the payment processor or your financial institution.


The Vendor or Order API could not complete processing payment for your Order or the Order itself. Usually occurs when payment of an Order could not go through or after an Authorization Charge is released because the vendor or Order API cannot fulfill an Order.


The Order & Billing team is reviewing your Order for either Fraud Review, an ongoing Customer Support Ticket or other internal reasons.

If your Order is On-Hold and you’re not aware of the hold, please reach out to Customer Support

This can also mean we are still waiting to receive your payment or processing the Payment into the Fulfillment Network’s partner account. The order team will not begin processing orders until funds have cleared into our accounts. This normally takes up-to 48 hours but may take longer if funds get held by payment processors during the process.


Your Order has been received by and is being β€˜processed’ by the Order team. This includes checking and confirming for item availability and shipping options available to you for the items in your order.

You can be able to request cancellation of your order at this point and the order may get cancelled during the processing stage if no shipping options are made available or an Export is declined for international orders.

Order that have passed the “Processing” stage can no longer be cancelled online. You will have to await fro your package and request a return instead.

Slightly Delayed

Your order is updated to this status when it passes it’s “ship-by” date. In most cases your order would still be in process but delayed and it would be arriving late outside the initial delivery eta.
