Shipping

 

 

Pay for extra postage, click here (or go to bottom of page).

We ship by USPS standard ground parcel post and absorb some of the shipping costs our self.  Not all of the shipping costs such as the box or envelope, padding or packing material, and time and labor associated with shipping are covered in what we charge for shipping.

Since what we sell currently is generally low cost, we do not insure shipments nor pay extra for tracking.  See below if you want a tracking number.  Contact us if you also want your order insured.

You will receive a PayPal notification when your order has shipped.  That does not necessarily mean it was shipped that day, it might have been shipped the day before. Sometimes it is the next day before we get all the orders cleared from the queue.

The free shipping on nichrome wire applies ONLY to the USA.  Contact us for special arrangements and shipping costs to any other country.  There are a few countries we do not ship to because the packages don't arrive at their destination.

 

Shipping internationally by normal first class mail USPS can take several weeks -- six weeks is not unusual..

 

For faster shipping or a tracking number, see below.

Using a forwarding service? 

Please contact us for the extra charge for a tracking number.  We are not responsible for orders shipped through a forwarding service and will not replace those orders if they do not arrive (often they are just very late).  You will need a tracking number for proof to your forwarding service that it arrived to them and they are responsible if you do not receive it.  In our experience, forwarding services are not very reliable.  It is better to have your order shipped direct.

Shipping Options & Tracking Information -- Domestic (50 U.S. states)

Jacobs Online is not responsible for orders after they are shipped and has no control over the Post Office or other carriers.  Orders are not shipped with a tracking number unless specifically requested and additional postage is paid.  Shipping options are listed below.

First Class Mail:  For small orders (not including spools or non wire orders) We ship by first class mail and pay for the postage.  There is no tracking number and delivery time varies depending on location and distance from Washington state.

Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope: $7.00 -- Estimated delivery 1 to 3 days.  You get a tracking number.  Small orders can go this way.

Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box: $7.00 -- Estimated delivery 1 to 3 days.  You get a tracking number.  Most larger wire orders can go this way.

Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box: $13.50 -- Estimated delivery 1 to 3 days.  You get a tracking number.  Very large wire orders or orders for larger merchandise can usually go this way.

 

Express Mail -- Usually no advantage and only for small orders.

 

UPS and FedEx are almost always more expensive. In addition to the shipping charge, there is a $20 minimum order requirement for shipping by UPS or FedEx, and orders shipped by UPS or FedEx will go out THE DAY AFTER the order is received due to their distance from Jacobs Online and the logistics of getting orders to them.  If you call around 8:00 AM Pacific Time week days, your order MAY be able to go out the same day. Orders are picked up by UPS and FedEx at Jacobs Online which is an extra $6 and is added to the regular shipping charge. We can also ship using your account number but the above conditions still apply.

 

Insurance:  A tracking number is not insurance.  It is only special handling in route to get your order faster and so you can track its progress through the delivery system.  You may contact us and request insurance if you want it.

Shipping Options & Tracking Information -- International (all amounts are in US dollars)

Jacobs Online is not responsible for orders after they are shipped and has no control over the Post Office or other carriers.  We also have no control over what other country's customs department may charge nor any information about customs charges.  The buyer is responsible for all customs charges.  Some countries charge nothing, others can charge ridiculous amounts.  It is recommended that you check on that before you order so there are no surprises. Orders are not shipped with a tracking number unless specifically requested and additional postage is paid.  Shipping Options are listed below.

The U.S. Post Office has increased prices effective January 27, 2016 and international prices have double or tripled from what they were before for packages.

First Class Mail:  For small orders that can go in an envelope -- wire on cards and 10ft open coils 20 gage and smaller, not over 3 oz $3.00 (specify what you are ordering and we can tell you for sure).  All other orders go as packages: up to 8 oz  $13.50, more after that.  Can be less depending on country so email us for exact amount for what you want to order.

There is no tracking number and orders can take any where from 2 weeks to 6 or 8 weeks to  arrive.  This is the default way orders are shipped unless arrangements are made for another method and extra shipping charges are paid. Transformers go by Priority mail and $11.00 is added automatically for USA orders at checkout so international orders must add an additional amount at the bottom of this page for transformers.  See the transformers page for the amount.

Priority Mail Flat Rate Small Box/envelope :  $35.00 ($25 for Canada) -- Estimated delivery 6-10 days but can longer -- no guarantee and no tracking number.

Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium Box :  $76.00 ($46 for Canada) -- Estimated delivery 6-10 days -- no guarantee but full tracking. All transformers are shipped this way.  See note in First Class Mail.

Express Mail:  $Varies by Country-- Estimated delivery 6 days.  You get a tracking number and delivery is guaranteed for most countries.  This is for a total maximum weight including envelope of 8 oz.  Items must be thin, only wire on cards and open coils.

UPS and FedEx are almost always more expensive. In addition to the shipping charge, there is a $20 minimum order requirement for shipping by UPS or FedEx, and orders shipped by UPS or FedEx will go out THE DAY AFTER the order is received unless order and extra shipping charge is received by 10:00 a.m. (you must call to arrange). Due to the distance from Jacobs Online to UPS & Fed Ex and the logistics of getting orders to them, orders are picked up by them at Jacobs Online which costs $6.00 extra.  An extra $5.00 is also charged for the additional time and effort in filling out their customs forms which are more complicated than the post office forms. These extra charges will be added to the FedEx or UPS shipping charged.  We can also ship using your account number but the above conditions still apply (the extra pickup charge will be included in your bill from FedEx or UPS).

 

Insurance:  A tracking number is not insurance.  It is only special handling in route to get your order faster and so you can track its progress through the delivery system.  You may contact us and request insurance if you want it.

DHL is not available.  We cannot ship using DHL because there is no DHL office within 150 miles of our location.

LATE ARRIVING ORDER?

If you think your order is late or lost, you can ask via email and we can tell you when the order was shipped, how the order was shipped, the address shipped to,  and what the carrier's estimated transit time is if they supply that.  As stated above, we have no control over the Post Office or other carriers nor how long they take to deliver.  Unless you paid extra for a shipping method that includes a tracking number, we cannot tell you any more than that.  If you paid extra for a tracking number, you will be notified by email of the tracking number on the day (or day after) it is shipped and you can track your order yourself online through the carrier's Web site. 

We ship everything through the post office unless special arrangements are made and extra shipping charges are paid.  It is extremely rare that the post office loses a piece of mail but if you want a guarantee, send an email and arrange to add  a tracking number and insurance to your order.  Their additional costs will apply.

We can take credit card orders over the phone but prefer you order online.  See the ordering page.
