What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. You must be 18 or older to order. We cannot accept money orders, purchase orders, cash, or checks for online orders.
Can I purchase gift cards?
We do not offer gift cards at this time.
What kind of sales tax do I have to pay when I order?
Any applicable state and local taxes will appear in your order during checkout.
Can I bill my order to an international address?
Your billing address can be located in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, territories of the United States, Canada, or any of the countries listed in the “Country” field that appears on the shipping page of your checkout process. All prices are shown in U.S. dollars (USD).
Can I place my order by phone?
We cannot accept orders via phone. All orders must be placed online.
Can I email my order?
We cannot accept orders via email. Sending personal information, especially your credit card, through email is not safe or secure, and this method should not be used.
Are there special savings available for online orders?
We occasionally run online specials and promotions. Check back often or sign up for email notifications for these events!
What if an item I ordered is not in stock?
We'll inform you if an item is out of stock and no longer available. If no longer available, you will be refunded for the item. If an item is back-ordered, it will be shipped as soon as it becomes available. You will not be charged for any additional shipping fees for orders that involve multiple shipments due to an item being back-ordered.
I had an item in my shopping cart, but when I went to check out, it was removed, and the item is now sold out. What happened?
Like many other online shopping sites, we utilize a virtual shopping cart in which items may be placed prior to check out. Items may be held in the shopping cart, but are not guaranteed to be available for purchase until the checkout process has been completed. An item is only guaranteed once the order is completely processed and you receive an order number on your confirmation page or in your confirmation email.
ShippingWhat are your shipping options and prices?
Please see our Shipping page for details.
Can I send items to more than one shipping address?
To ship items to more than one address, please create a separate order for each shipping address.
