Shipping Information

We are working hard to deliver items in a timely manner. We’ve implemented special procedures as we work to keep our teams – and you – safe. With that, processing time is currently 2-4 business days. We appreciate your patience during these extraordinary times and truly value your business.   

 

Who do you use for shipping?

We ship UPS ground for our US orders. We encourage you to sign up for UPS MyChoice. There are two UPS MyChoice account levels, one of which is free. From your UPS MyChoice account you can choose where, when, and how you receive your packages. Do you want UPS to leave your box in the third bush on the right, behind the red tulips? You can tell them this in your account preferences!

How long does it take my order to ship?

Once an order has been fulfilled UPS will deliver your item within 3-7 business days. At this time we do not offer expedited shipping.

Where will my order ship from?

We have two distribution centers, one in California and one in South Carolina. Your order will fulfill from the closest distribution center to you that has the item you ordered.

I didn't receive all of my items. Are they coming in a later shipment?

As we have two distribution centers, it is likely that your other items are on their way. There is a small chance that the missing item(s) you ordered are out of stock. Please contact customer service at info@pearlizumi.com for assistance with additional questions.

I entered the wrong shipping address. Can you update it?

Once an order has been placed we are unable to cancel or modify it in anyway.

Do you ship to APO addresses?

    All billing addresses must be in the US. The billing address you enter must match the address your bank has on file; we send this information to your bank for verification, and we cannot override their response if it does not match. If you feel you are entering your address correctly, please call the 1-800 number on the back of your card, ask for either the Fraud or Authorizations Department and have them verify what your address is on file. If you have more than one address on file (most common with PO Boxes and after moving to a new home) one of those addresses will likely need to be deleted from the bank’s system. Please use the exact address they provide for your billing address.
