Can I submit different billing and shipping addresses?

Yes, you may now submit different billing and shipping addresses, with the following exceptions:

  • If you pay with PayPal, we can ONLY ship to the address you provide to PayPal with your payment.
     
  • If you pay by Credit Card, we are required to do additional verification of the credit card. This helps us protect our customers from credit card fraud. It is a simple, one-time verification process that you won't have to repeat if you shop with us again using the same card. Read more about credit card verification
     
  • We reserve the right to deny orders with mismatched addresses at our discretion.

When will my gear arrive?

We ship every weekday, excluding holidays. Most orders will ship within 24 hours.

This is a map of the typical UPS Ground transit times (actual shipping times may vary):

Please note: Transit Days refers to business days only (Monday-Friday excluding holidays). The times listed assume your order is shipped the day it is received. Orders received on weekends/holidays or after 12pm MST on weekdays will ship the the next business day.

For example, if you live in Florida and place an order at 10am on Monday, it will ship on Monday and you will recieve it on Friday (4 business days later).
However, if you place the order at 6pm on Monday, it won't ship until Tuesday and you won't receive it until the following Monday.

Salty Peaks is not responsible for deliveries that may be affected by holidays, weekends, severe weather, worker strikes, or other events out of our control.

Can I track my shipment online?

Yes, once your order has shipped we will email you a tracking number and a link to track it on the UPS or USPS website. If you do not receive an email within 1 business day of placing your order, please contact us at service@saltypeaks.com.

International shipping costs and methods

We have now partnered with International Checkout (www.internationalcheckout.com) to handle international orders. International Checkout allows customers to pay with their international credit cards or PayPal accounts. If you prefer, you may still deal directly with Salty Peaks to handle your order if you pay by Western Union or Money Gram (PayPal is also an option in Canada and the UK only).

Shipping using International Checkout:

If you choose International Checkout, they will determine shipping costs and methods. Most orders will ship with DHL Express. Any shipping quotes you may have already seen on saltypeaks.com will not apply to your order. We will ship your order to the International Checkout depot, and they will ship your order to you. This will add an additional 2 days minimum to the overseas transit time. More about International Checkout.

Shipping using Salty Peaks directly:

We ship international orders with UPS and USPS Priority Mail International. Snowboards and other large items must be shipped with UPS (all countries except Canada).

Shipping to most countries is calculated automatically on our checkout page. You may place products in your shopping cart and click the "Checkout" button to begin the checkout process. After you enter your address, shipping options and costs are displayed. You will not have to finalize your order to view shipping costs.

If the shipping cost is not displayed during checkout, we will calculate it after your order is received, and contact you with your updated total. You may contact us for an estimated quote. Please include the products you want to order, along with your city, country, and post code.
