Shipping Options and Charges
Welcome to I-Supplements.com Shipping & Info Page
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: USPS has raised their shipping rates as of 1/17/16. Unfortunately, we must do so as well. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
For all UPS services, we do not offer Saturday delivery. Example: if you select "NEXT DAY AIR" on a Friday, your package will not arrive until Monday. If you REALLY REALLY NEED IT then give us a call but please be aware that Saturday delivery costs an arm and a leg (and perhaps a kidney) and is not always guaranteed.

When will my order ship?
We process orders Monday through Friday. We do not process or ship orders on weekends or holidays. We get most orders out the same or next day. If we use UPS, you will get an email from UPS and one from us when your order ships! Please allow 7-14 business days for orders to arrive. If we have a problem getting your product in stock we will notify you by email or phone.
All in-stock orders are shipped within 24-48 hrs. If an item is out of stock and is not expected within 48 hours, we will email you and give you a projected ship date. Please make sure you provide a correct shipping and email address on your order. UPS charges $15.00 for incorrect or misspelled shipping information. This will be charged to the customer's credit card.
We do not process order's after 1PM EST or on Saturday's and Sundays. Also UPS does not deliver on Saturday's or Sunday's.
Incorrectly Inputting Shipping Information
If you incorrectly input your address, forget to add your suite or apartment number, input your zip code incorrectly, you will be charged $15.00. No questions asked! UPS charges i-Supplements this fee to send it back or to intercept your package when they can not find your shipping destination. If you want your order re-shipped it will be the original shipping cost of your order plus the $15.00. If you want to cancel the order, your credit will be minus the $15.00 fee, 20% re-stock fee and minus the shipping cost. So please double and triple check your address after you input it. We do not want to charge these fee's to you.
What is Package Delivery Insurance?
Insure your package arrives every time. For $1.99 your package delivery is guaranteed, no questions asked. $1.99 covers your package 100%. If you package is ever lost, stolen or damaged during shipping it is replaced and re-shipped at no cost to you.

Changes for Shipments that are 5 pounds and over
In an effort to maintain the highest levels of customer service, I-Supplements.com is changing the way we process orders for orders over 5 pounds. Due to the heavy weight of these packages, it is necessary to charge an additional fee for shipping above the standard ground shipping rate of 9.99 for UPS Ground and 6.95 for USPS Priority. Effective immediately, we will be manually charging this additional fee separately from your online order. Therefore, you will see a charge for the order and our standard shipping rate, followed by another additional charge for the additional shipping fee. See below besides each shipping weight to see what the manual charge will be.
