ChristmasOrnaments.com ships all of our packages by United States Postal Service (USPS) First Class or Priority Mail. If your package weighs more than 13 ounces, it will automatically be shipped Priority Mail. During the last few weeks of the holiday buying season, we reserve the right to ship all orders via Priority Mail.
Should we not be able to ship your order within five (5) business days, we will make every effort to advise you of our estimated shipping date. If at any time you are not satisfied with our shipping schedule, you may cancel your order so long as it has not been labeled for delivery.
If you want to communicate with us about your order, please write to us at Shipping@ChristmasOrnaments.com. Please be sure to include your order number. It appears at the top of the confirmation we automatically send you, by e-mail, a few minutes after you order. Without it, we will have difficulty locating your order.
ChristmasOrnaments.com uses United States Postal Service First Class or Priority Mail. The charges for these services are:
- $6.95 per address for up to 5 ornaments
- SHIPPING IS FREE per address for 5 or more ornaments
Special Shipping charges:
- Because certain items on our site are expensive to ship to you, we have added a surcharge on them. The surcharge varies depending on the item, but will be clearly stated to you on the page where you select the item and again when you are ready to check out, so there are no surprises.
- Shipping to multiple addresses nullifies the free shipping, unless you are sending five or more items to the SAME address.
- If you ship to more than one address, or you have items in your order that call for a shipping surcharge, your charges will vary, depending on the number of items you ship to each address and/or any applicable surcharges. Here are some “for instances:”
- If you ship less than 5 ornaments to each address, there will be a $6.95 shipping charge per address.
- If you ship 5 ornaments to one address and 4 to another, your shipping charges will be $6.95. The order with 5 ornaments will ship free, the one with 4 ornaments will be charged.
- If your order contains 4 ornaments and one item with a surcharge (a total of 5 items), standard shipping will be free, and you will be charged ONLY the surcharge.
- Let’s say your order is for 5 items, and three of them have surcharges. You will receive a credit of $6.95 (free shipping of 5 items) but will be charged 3 surcharges.
Time to Process
The time it takes to process your order is the estimated number of business days from your order date to the shipping of your ornaments and other items. In most cases, we will ship your order(s) from our warehouse within five (5) business days. Please note the following circumstances when this process may be delayed:
- If we need to verify your credit card information, shipment of merchandise will be delayed until verification is complete.
- If we have a question about your order and have tried to contact you via phone or e-mail to clarify.
- If an item is temporarily out of stock and we are waiting for new inventory. In this situation you will be contacted and given the option of selecting another ornament or waiting for the product to arrive.
- If we have a question regarding the shipping address.
Merchandise does not ship on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays.
Time in Transit
Time in transit is the estimated number of business days from shipment of your order to your receipt of it. Please note that service is from time of product shipment (there may be processing or weekend days in between). Please consider that our offices are in Lake Forest, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Our local Post Master tells us First Class mail should arrive within 2-5 business days and if your order is shipped by Priority Mail, it should arrive in 2-3 business days. Note: these are estimates and do not take weather delays into consideration or other potential United States Post Office transit delays.
