4. How will my order be shipped and how long will it take to ship?

Your order will be shipped UPS unless otherwise specified. You can select between UPS Ground, 2nd Day Air, and Overnight when you place your order. Orders placed outside the United States may have other shipping options available to them.

When you order one of our starter kits online before 3 PM Eastern Time it is fast-tracked to ship that same day (unless indicated otherwise on our website). Same day delivery is for Continental US orders only and does not apply to orders that include DI-5B or DI-8B modules. All other products normally ship within one week. You will be notified if your product is out of stock or delayed.

When you order one of our starter kits, an Invoice with a tracking number will be emailed to the billing address email provided when your order ships out. For all other products, a tracking number will be emailed to you from UPS when your order ships. If you need your tracking number or a separate invoice, contact Customer Support.
