Shipping and handling

U.S. domestic orders: Free shipping to individuals in the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii, and U.S. Territories. Reseller and institutional orders are not eligible for free shipping.

Allow 7–10 days for delivery from date order is received. Routine processing usually occurs within 2 business days of receipt and is sent via UPS Ground (3–6 business days transit time) from our East Coast distribution facilities. UPS does not deliver to P.O. Boxes. If a P.O. Box is entered in the shipping address field, this can cause delays or nondelivery.

The free shipping policy for individuals will not be applied to the reshipment of an order that is due to customer error or oversight.

If this level of service is selected, APA will not be held liable and will not honor any claims for undelivered, delayed, or lost shipments.

International guaranteed service provides tracking and guaranteed delivery with 3–5 days of shipping.
