Domestic U.S. Options

Swallowtail Electronics uses three mail carries to deliver orders. USPS (United States Postal Service), UPS (United Parcel Service) and DHL Global (Dalsey, Hillblom and Lynn). USPS and UPS are used for domestic shipping while DHL is planned to be used for International Deliveries. Lost package claims may be submitted between 45 and 90 days after shipment regarding the mail service provider you have selected. The services available from USPS that we offer to customers are First Class Express and Priority Mail.

  • First Class Express is uninsured and tracked and has no guarantee delivery date. Order can take up to two weeks from the shipped date to arrive. First Class order must be under 13oz in weight (most items will meet this criteria).
  • Priority Mail is uninsured and tracked and can take up to 3-5 business days once shipped.
The UPS services that are available are UPS Ground, 2 or 3-Day select and Next Day Air.
  • UPS Ground is insured and tracked but delivery is not guaranteed by UPS. However, shipments usually arrive within the first week of your order placement (unless during federal holidays).
  • 2 or 3-Day or Next Day Air are high speed expensive services that are insured and tracked. Delivery is guaranteed after it is shipped and scanned by UPS not once it is ordered.
Orders usually ship within 1-2 business days after the order is placed but this varies with the level of orders being placed.
