When will my BarristerBooks.com order ship?
Unless otherwise noted on the product pages for the items you ordered, orders placed before 3pm CST on any business day generally ship from our warehouse on the same day. Orders placed after 3pm CST on any business day generally will ship on the following business day. Business days do not include weekends or holidays. While most items are available to ship within the next business day, the product pages for the items you ordered indicates "This item ships within 1-2 business days" or indicates a longer ship-out timeframe, you must allow the maximum time for these items to ship. For instance, when placing a NEXT DAY AIR order at 8am on a Tuesday for an item whose product page lists "This item ships within 1-2 business days", you must allow for the possibility that your order will not ship out until Thursday.

When will I receive my BarristerBooks.com order?
Unless otherwise indicated on the product page, most of our items ship from our warehouse within one business day of order placement. If your order ships via Free Shipping or USPS Media Mail, you can expect to receive it within 6-10 business days. Next Business Day Air and 2nd Business Day Air are delivered on the next business day and second business day after order shipment, respectively.

Ground Expedited is our most popular shipping method among our customers because Ground shipments generally are delivered within 1-3 business days from the shipment date. To get an idea of how fast your order will get to you if you choose Ground Expedited as your shipping method, look for your Shipping Address state in the map below:

Can I get a shipping confirmation email and tracking number for my BarristerBooks.com order?
Yes! Shortly after your order ships from our warehouse (within approximately 8-12 hours of shipment) you will be sent a shipping confirmation email to the email address in Your Customer Account which will let you know that your order has shipped. This email will also include a tracking number and a link where you can go to enter your tracking number and track your shipment.

Does BarristerBooks.com require a signature for delivery on UPS shipments?
No, BarristerBooks.com never requires a signature for delivery on UPS shipments. However, it is UPS policy that the delivery driver has the discretion whether or not to leave a delivery in an area that the driver deems unsafe for the package. In these situations, the driver will leave a notice of the delivery attempt, as well as the timeframe for the next delivery attempt. You can often simply sign the back of the notice and leave it for the driver if you feel you may not be available to sign for the delivery on the next attempt.

My tracking number claims that the package was delivered, but I don't have it. What do I do?
Unfortunately, if the shipper has confirmed that delivery was made, you must contact the shipper directly to ascertain the details of the delivery. You may contact UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS and USPS at 1-800-ASK-USPS. In many cases, if you live in an apartment complex and you are not at your shipping address to accept delivery, shippers will usually either leave your package with a neighboring apartment or with your apartment manager's office. When tracking your delivered shipment, if an individual is listed as having signed for your delivery, this name can often be helpful in ascertaining where your package was delivered.

My tracking number doesn't seem to be working. What's wrong?
First, sometimes we ship so fast, even our shippers can't keep up! If you just received your shipping confirmation email and your tracking number doesn't seem to be working, the tracking number may not yet be active in the shipper's system. Please try your tracking number again in a few more hours when it should be activated. Second, make sure that you are checking your tracking number with the correct shipper (i.e. don't try to track a UPS tracking number at the USPS web site). Finally, if you still cannot get your tracking number to work, please contact us at [email protected].

What are Shipping Surcharges and when do they apply?

What about shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands?
UPS 2nd Business Day Air and UPS Next Business Day Air shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands incur a shipping surcharge of $10 and $12, respectively. This shipping surcharge is automatically calculated and included in the final order total at checkout.
