Shipping & Returns

Shipping within the U.S.

TE ships Monday through Friday (except on holidays observed by the U.S. Postal Service or other published dates of closure). Most orders ship within 1-2 business days. In an effort to get your order to you as quickly as possible, we use USPS for all domestic orders.* While packages shipped with USPS typically take 1-4 days for delivery to domestic addresses, changes made by the USPS effective Oct. 1, 2021, may delay delivery by as many as 5 days. Please take this change into account when ordering. 

*When a package contains heavy items, the package may be shipped using FedEx Ground. All domestic wholesale orders ship via FedEx Ground unless otherwise noted on your invoice.

We reserve the right to ship packages using the most economical shipping service. 

We offer free U.S. shipping to retail customers on orders over $50. If your order does not qualify for free shipping, you will be charged a shipping cost based upon the weight of the products you ordered (in accordance with USPS shipping rates).

Shipping to Canada

All packages shipped to Canada will be marked as "merchandise" on the required customs forms. Customer is responsible for any applicable duty or taxes that may be related to the delivery of their purchase. 

For packages weighing less than 4 pounds, we provide the following options:

1) USPS First-Class Package International Service is the most economical option. With USPS First-Class Package International, most packages are delivered within 14 business days, however they can take as long as 21 business days to be delivered depending on time spent in customs and your local postal service.  Please note that orders shipped via First-Class Package International are not guaranteed and do not qualify for a refund if they are lost in transit. Any package that weighs over 4 pounds will not qualify for First-Class Package International and will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail Express International Service (see below).

2) USPS Priority Mail Express International Service is a more expensive option, but has added benefits. Most packages shipped via Priority Mail Express International arrive within 6 business days. While the rates may be higher, packages shipped with Priority Mail Express International include a tracking code and shipping confirmation. Unlike USPS First Class International, orders placed using Express Mail qualify for a refund if a package is lost in transit.

3) UPS Standard Service is an ideal choice when speed needs to be balanced with economy. Ground packages are typically delivered within 7 business days, depending on destination, and include a tracking code and shipping confirmation.

Flat Rate Shipping may be a more economical shipping option for retail customers in Canada. Effective April 1, 2020, customers may choose an alternative flat rate shipping* option based on their order total:

- For orders totaling $100 or less, flat rate is $19.00
- For orders totaling $100.01-$250.00, flat rate is $24.00
- For orders totaling $250.01 or more, flat rate is $29.00

*We reserve the right to ship flat rate packages using the most economical shipping service (either USPS or UPS).

All packages shipped to an international destination will be marked as "merchandise" on the required customs forms. Customer is responsible for any applicable duty or taxes that may be related to the delivery of their purchase.
