Shipping options and rates are displayed in checkout and are determined by the shipping address entered. Some shipping options may not be available to all addresses. Free shipping isn’t available for orders shipping to PO boxes.

Emerson orders shipped within the US shipped via UPS, DHL, or FedEx may in some cases be passed to USPS for final delivery.

Same-day shipping cutoff times

Orders placed before 3:00 p.m. local time Monday – Friday ship same-day. Orders placed after this cutoff time, over the weekend, or on holidays will ship the following business day.

Orders requiring a USPS shipping service, such as a PO box, APO, DPO, or FPO address, are subject to additional processing time.

Please refer to delivery estimates and details in checkout for accurate delivery estimates and applicable rates.

Note:

Orders emailed to our support team before the cutoff are not guaranteed to be fulfilled same-day. To avoid delays receiving your orders, please place orders directly through our website. Learn how!

Heat-sensitive items

Orders containing heat-sensitive products placed after the order cutoff on Thursdays with overnight shipping are subject to a “cold hold” and won’t be picked up by couriers until the following Monday or the next business day (on holidays). Please be aware that affected orders are expected to arrive on Tuesdays, and UPS delivery estimates available in tracking information may be incorrect.

Products requiring shipment in a cool environment are subject to special shipping procedures due to their sensitive nature to ensure they are received in good condition. We recommend ordering early in the week and choosing overnight delivery when ordering heat-sensitive products.

Note:

While some products require long-term refrigeration, not all need to be shipped with a cold pack. If the manufacturer does not specify the need for a cold pack during shipping, we will follow their guidelines and ship without one.

You can identify heat-sensitive items by the thermometer icon ( ) on product display cards and pages.

Out-of-stock items

Items that are out of stock when your order is placed can’t be shipped immediately. We’ll ship out-of-stock items automatically as soon as they return to stock, typically within 10–14 business days. Out-of-stock items are included in pre-authorizations when your order is placed but aren’t charged until they’re shipped successfully.

Drop-ship orders

Free shipping is available for patient orders $250+, with delivery in 3 business days. Shipping carriers impose an additional cost of $4.45 on all drop shipments, including those that meet the free shipping threshold. 

Large order holds

Large orders may be held temporarily to confirm the order is being distributed to a business. We fully support the resale policies and restrictions of all of our suppliers and thus will place certain large orders on hold as we review the details to ensure customer compliance with our suppliers’ reseller policies. This may result in a one-day processing delay.

International orders

As of February 1st, 2024, we no longer support international shipping and can only ship to addresses in the US and US Territories (Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Guam).

Price changes

All prices are subject to change without notice. Not liable for errors or omissions. Please refer to the online catalog for current pricing.

Packing slips

Packing slips are included in each Emerson Ecologics shipment. These slips will include information such as products, quantities, and the order number, but they won’t display pricing.

Shelf-life guarantee

Emerson only sells items that’ll expire outside three months, though we target six months or more. If you receive an expired item or an item is determined to expire within three months, please reach out to support.

Tip!

Seeing this symbol :clock2: next to an item? This indicates that an item has a shelf life of less than six months.
