2)    What is your Shipping Policy?

BandMerch orders ship from Burbank, CA. Our current order processing time is approximately 1-3 business days (24-72 hours/M-F excluding holidays) for in-stock merchandise. During this processing time, your online order is transmitted to our fulfillment center and processed for shipment as quickly as possible. Business days are defined as Monday through Friday and exclude Holidays.

3)    What shipping carriers do you provide within the Continental U.S.?

Orders with ship to addresses within the U.S. will be shipped via UPS or USPS. Packages will typically arrive within 1-5 business days after processing.

*Orders going to PO Boxes, Military, and APOs must be shipped with USPS.

4)    How are shipping costs calculated?

 BandMerch shipping rates are calculated based on total weight and dimensions of the item(s) ordered and the zip/postal code of where the order is being shipped to. NOTE: Oversized items are subject to additional shipping/ fees.

All international orders, including Canada, will reflect higher shipping rates to allow for the option to track your package.  Local taxes are charged upon delivery (COD) and not included in the shipping price here.

5)    When will I receive my order?

 Orders are typically processed and shipped within 1-3 business days. The number of delivery days indicates the estimated delivery time after the order has been picked up by the shipping carrier and does not include the processing time at our fulfillment center.

Pre-sale orders begin processing as soon as the item is in stock and fully received. You can expect your order to ship 1-3 business days after the item is received in stock.

Certain items (which require special preparation for shipment, such as fine art pieces) may require a longer processing time. In these cases, we will make every effort to reflect this exception with a notice in the product description page.

6)    What is your International Shipping Policy?

Our International customers are very important to us. We are proud to be serving customers worldwide to areas that our shipping providers service. Please keep in mind that the items in the shipment must not be prohibited by embargo or National/International restrictions.

We do not currently offer service to the following regions: Vietnam, Malaysia, N. Korea, S. Korea, Singapore, Cambodia, Indonesia, Nigeria, Ghana, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Burma (Myanmar), Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria. We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope to be able to offer services to these parts of the world in the near future. 

You have the choice of choosing our 2 international services: RRD International or DHL Express international. Both services offer tracking. RRD international will deliver the package to the destination country’s postal service. RRD international delivery times average 4 -10 business days once shipped (please allow up to 3 days for order processing before the item ships), but will depend on the destination country and can be delayed in customs.  DHL Express delivers packages directly and usually within 2-3 business days.

Please be aware that we are not responsible for products confiscated by the legal authorities of your country or state; we advise you to check your local customs office regarding import laws in advance, before ordering, if you suspect that your country bans any products. 

The customer is responsible for all shipping charges for any International orders that are refused upon delivery. 

Please note that oversized items or items that are heavier in weight may be restricted to delivery to the Continental US only due to International carrier restrictions. We apologize for this inconvenience, and are hoping to offer expanded services in the near future.

 7)     Are there any additional fees associated with International Shipments?

 Orders shipping to destinations outside the United States might incur import fees and duties & taxes that are not reflected in our prices. If duties and taxes are imposed on your order, they are due at time of delivery. Please consult your local customs office for more details about your country's duties and taxes.

Per the terms of our Return Policy, please note that shipping arrangements and costs incurred to return items are the customer’s responsibility.
