Currently, Real Techniques orders are shipped to US destinations only. Shipping occurs on business days (Monday to Friday, excluding national holidays).
Orders will be shipped via USPS or UPS. After your order leaves our warehouse, typical ground transit times are 1-5 business days (continental US) and 7-14 business days (Alaska and Hawaii). Expedited shipping reduces transit time, but not order processing time. Shipping rates are subject to change at any time.
Generally, orders ship same day if received by 1pm (CST), Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Orders ship next business day if received after 1pm (CST). Transit days for USPS are Monday through Saturday, excluding holidays. Transit days for UPS are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
UPS will make a total of three (3) delivery attempts, sometimes 2 on a single day. After each delivery attempt, they will leave a notice telling you the approximate time of the next delivery. If after 3 attempts they still have not found you at home, they will temporarily hold your package at the local office for pick up. If the package cannot be delivered and is not picked up at the UPS office, it will be returned to us. If your package is being sent Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air, it will IMMEDIATELY be returned to our warehouse after the 3rd delivery attempt. Air packages are not held at the local UPS office. Reshipment charges apply for orders returned for non-delivery.
Shipping Confirmation Emails
Once your order is shipped, your tracking number will be emailed to you so you can track your order via the carrier's website. Please note that our carriers do not process orders on the weekend. Therefore, if you place an order on Friday, you may experience a delay between your shipping confirmation e-mail and the actual shipment of your order.
