Shipping and Handling


When will my order be shipped from Jameco?
  • Orders received on weekdays before 6 p.m. Eastern time are shipped on the same day (subject to credit approval and stock availability). Orders received on weekends or U.S. holidays will ship on the next business day. Some items are stocked at our satellite warehouse. These items typically require 2-3 extra days to ship. You can check availability on the product page, which will tell you how many days until we can ship your order after receipt of order (ARO).

What are your shipping rates?
  • Our system evaluates rates from UPS, Fed Ex and USPS and will return the least expensive freight option depending on the delivery location and package weight. Customers can override the least expensive option by selecting one of the Standard or Express rates. Shipping prices start at less than $5 for packages of a 1/2 lb. or less and are competitive across all freight options.
