Please visit our shipping info page:

Here you will learn the details about:

1) Our processing and shipping times.

All online orders ship within 1-2 business days. With the UPS 3day, 2nd day and Next day shipping option, orders placed by 11am ET during weekdays usually ship same day (We do not have Saturday service for UPS as an option). We ship reseller orders and purchase orders in 3-5 business days.

2) What shipping carriers we use.

Adafruit Industries uses three carriers, USPS (United States Postal Service), UPS (United Parcel Service) and DHL (Dalsey, Hillblom and Lynn) for shipping. USPS is traditionally cheaper and does not provide detailed tracking. UPS is sometimes faster and a little more expensive, but has a high-quality tracking system. (Tracking information is emailed when the package is shipped). We do not offer Saturday delivery as an option for UPS at this time. When in doubt about choosing a shipping method, we suggest UPS.  As of January 2020 we no longer offer UPS international.  We are now shipping all international orders with DHL and USPS.

3) A breakdown of the different shipping methods we offer, including estimates of how long it will take your package to get to you.

4) Where we don't ship.

We do not offer every shipping and payment option for all destinations. Please follow the instructions for determining what shipping and payment options are available for your order. Adafruit does not ship to hotels, freight forwarders, border stores, courier services, some UPS Stores or PO Boxes.
