Total delivery time

The total delivery time for your order is the period of time from when you place your order until the time you receive it. It is comprised of two parts, the processing time and the shipping time, as shown below.

Processing time - for an item is: the time from when you submit your order to when the item leaves the warehouse. The processing time at Northwest Seed & can vary depending on a few conditions. If the item is in stock it will usually be processed in 1-2 business days. If we are out of stock of an item, it can take several days to weeks till we can restock and finish processing your order. Usually orders received after 1pm P.S.T. will start being processed the following business day, orders received after 1pm P.S.T. on Fridays will start being processed the following Monday. (this can vary depending on number of orders received before yours, holidays, vacations, sickness, and time off of employees at Northwest Seed &

Shipping time - from when your order is picked up by the shipping carrier you chose, to when the shipper delivers your order at your shipping address.

Shipping times

The arrival date-range of each item is determined by adding the minimum of the processing time to the minimum of the shipping time and the maximum of the processing time to the maximum of the shipping time. For instance, if you bought a mouse trap that took 1 to 2 business days to process before shipping and you had it sent by UPS ground shipping (3 to 5 business days), Your order would arrive in 4 to 9 business days. This applies to shipments in the continental United States. Shipments sent to Alaska and Hawaii, add 2 days to the shipping time. Delivery to U.S. Territories, Protectorates, APO/FPO addresses may take 3 to 6 weeks.

Determination of shipping times

During the checkout process you will be asked what shipping carrier you wish to use. You will then select the speed (time) of your shipment. Slowest = cheapest & fastest = most expensive. Your order will be shipped based on you selection.How are shipping costs determined?

The shipping cost for most items is based on the item's size, weight, shipping method and delivery address. An estimated shipping cost is determined by adding the weight and or size of your products, the weight/size is multiplied by the shippers cost per pound/dimensions and the time you selected to transport the item to your address. It is assume all items in your cart are going to one address. If you need to ship to multiple addresses and or need multiple shipping methods you will need to make separate orders for each selection. Generally, you will see your actual shipping cost during checkout. On occasion, if the weight of your order exceeds the maximum weight that the shipping company you selected accepts, we will need to split your order between multiple boxes/packages and adjust your shipping costs for each additional box/package.

Different shipping address than billing address

If your order is shipping to an address other than the billing address on your credit card, we may contact you to list the alternate address with your credit card company. This helps prevent fraudulent use of your credit card. To list the alternate address with your credit card company, just call the 800 number on the back of your card and ask the agent to add the address to the notes on your account. Listing the address before you place an order helps us process your order more quickly.

Shipping Regulated Materials

Due to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety restrictions, we cannot ship items by air that contain regulated or hazardous materials. These restricted items are usually identified on the item page. They typically fall into one of two categories: Aerosol products in pressurized spray cans

For instance, soon after you place an order, we send an email confirming we have received it. We send a second confirmation email when your order has shipped. You may also receive an email from the shipping company you selecting that has a tracking number for your order/s. We send more than one shipment confirmation email if we fulfill the order in multiple shipments. We might also send other emails about your order's status, if necessary. Please save these emails for your records.
