Shipping & Returns

  • We stock what we sell, so you get prompt delivery of your products. Plus we offer a free shipping option for $1600+ orders!

  • Having problems with something you purchased? Be sure to have your order number and company name available. We’ll need these to arrange your return or exchange.

Shipping Policy

Because we have such a large in-stock inventory, we are able to ship 90% of orders within 24 business hours (holidays and weekends excluded) pending credit card verification. Once orders have shipped from Glcodes, you may track your order directly through UPS using the tracking number provided.

Free Shipping on $1600+ Orders Terms

Free shipping is available for single orders of $1600 (excluding sales tax) or more that are shipped to contiguous (mainland) US addresses. UPS Ground shipping charges cannot be credited toward other shipping methods.

Need it Faster?

Expedited shipping options are also available for most items, including next-day and 2-day air delivery. Shipping upgrade options and costs vary. Select your preferred upgrade during the checkout process or call for more details. Please allow extra time for delivery to remote addresses. Please note that orders with expedited shipping still require our standard 24 hour order processing time.

APO, FPO, & PO Box Addresses

Due to fraud associated with APO, FPO, and PO box addresses, we have special requirements. We may require payment via bank wire to process orders using APO/FPO. We cannot ship to PO boxes; please arrange to have products shipped to your physical address, either home or business. We apologize and thank you in advance for your understanding.
