Shipping and Processing Charges
Q: How are items shipped?
A: Delphi normally ships orders via FedEx or the U.S. Post Office. For faster delivery most items can be shipped via next day or second day air for an additional charge. For international destinations (anywhere outside the contiguous U.S.), charges will vary by destination, weight and freight carrier. During online order checkout you will be provided with shipping options and shipping charges. A few items, such as large kilns and glass crates are delivered by truck. Items requiring truck delivery will be specified in the product's description. Delphi receives very competitive freight rates - if you would like an item that is delivered by truck please proceed through your order, you will receive an emailed Freight Estimate form from a Delphi Representative within 24-48 hrs or contact Delphi for delivery options and charges.
Q: How much do you charge for shipping?
A: Basic shipping and processing charges depend on the destination and the weight of your order, as well as the delivery method you choose. For faster shipping, Delphi offers FedEx Next Day, Second Day Air, and 3 Day Select Delivery for most orders. During the checkout process you will be given these shipping options (if applicable) and the appropriate charges.
Note: Backordered items will not be charged any additional shipping.
Q: Can I receive reduced shipping rates for books and other media (Media Mail)?
A: When you order books, DVDs and CDs, you can select Media Mail Delivery to save on shipping! This reduced rate postal service provides delivery in approximately 5-10 days for packages up to 70 pounds containing only books, DVDs and CDs. Save up to 50% off regular shipping rates when you select this shipping option for eligible orders. If your order includes any item that is not a book, DVD or CD, this shipping option will not be available and will not be shown.
Q: What are boxing charges and when do they apply?
A: Boxing charges are for items that need special handling and require special separate boxing. Boxing charges apply to sheet glass, dichroic waves/stringers/noodles, came and framing stock only. Please note that pre-made glass packs do NOT incur a separate boxing charge. If boxing charges apply to your order, they will be added automatically, so you can review your total shipping and handling charges before you finalize your order. Please note that we cannot mix small or medium glass pieces with large pieces. The size differential of the glass pieces creates undue breakage. Sheet glass and came will ship separately from other craft supplies.
Q: What if an item is backordered?
A: Delphi's website features real time inventory* and will note backordered items on the product's pages and again in the shopping cart. During the checkout process, domestic retail customers have the option to have us ship what is in stock, and then ship the backordered item separately, OR we can hold your entire order, and ship complete when the backordered item arrives. Delphi will backorder items temporarily out of stock up to 30 days. On rare occasions when a backorder last longer than 30 days you will be notified via postcard and given the option to cancel or continue to wait for the back ordered item. We must cancel your back ordered item(s) if the card is not mailed back promptly.
