About Shipping Preferences

Every time you place an order via the Shopping Cart that contains more than one delivery date, you can choose for your order to be shipped in the fewest possible packages or for your order to be shipped as soon as each item it becomes available.

You can change your shipping preferences in Your Account at any time after placing your order as long as the order hasn’t entered the shipping process yet.

Prime Customers

FREE Delivery in fewest possible packages

This is a free shipping option for Prime members purchasing Prime eligible items that are in stock. Your Prime orders will be consolidated into the fewest number of packages possible and may take longer to ship depending on product availability.

I want my items faster. Ship each item as soon as it becomes available

This is also a free shipping option for Prime members purchasing Prime eligible items that are in stock. Your Prime items ship as they become available. You should choose this option if you want to receive each item as fast as possible.

Non-Prime Customers

Deliver items in fewest possible packages

For items that are in stock, your orders will be consolidated into the fewest number of shipments possible. This may take longer to ship depending on product availability, but there will only be one shipping charge for the entire order.

I want my items faster. Ship each item as soon as it becomes available (at additional cost)

For items that are in stock, your items ship as they become available. You should choose this option if you want to receive some items quickly.

The number of shipments we make for your order is dependent upon:

  • Location in our fulfillment network
If your order has dissimilar items such as, a book, a computer, and a cordless drill, they may ship separately, depending on where in our fulfillment network they happen to be located.
  • Items requiring special shipping and handling (for example, items that are large and/or heavy)
These items are marked on their product detail pages and will ship separately from other items in your order.

Note: You will not be charged more for shipping than the amount that was originally quoted to you at the time you place the order. Shippers are selected depending on the weight of the package and the distance it has to travel from our fulfillment center, requests for specific shippers will not be accommodated.
