Terms & Conditions
Last Updated: Feb 16th, 2011
We accept payments via Credit Card, PayPal, personal checks, or money orders. PayPal account payments or credit card payments are processed immediately. Personal checks and money orders must clear before your order will be processed. PayPal eCheck Payments must be cleared from the sender's account before your order will be processed. It usually takes 4 business days for PayPal eCheck Payments to clear. You will receive a notification from us as soon as your order is processed. We can not be responsible for glitches in the PayPal processing system.
When paying by Credit Card, our website holds your credit card info in memory for only a few seconds to pass the information through a secure payment gateway. Once the response is returned from the payment gateway, the web server erases your crecit card info from memory forever. We do not store your credit card info. We feel that this is the best policy to protect your credit card data, but it means that we have to process the payment at the time the order is placed, rather than at the time the order ships.
Domestic shipping is handled by by your choice of either UPS or USPS. The website calculates the shipping charges automatically. You can see the shipping fee in the first step of the checkout process.
We test every product we send it out. Most orders are shipped within 24 - 48 hours. High volume and seasonality may cause delays in shipping, but know that we are moving as fast as we can. Orders received on the weekends or Holidays will be shipped on the next business day, which is usually Monday.
FireBall V90 kits and stepper motor driver kits with the ready-to-run option take 7 to 10 days to process because each one is custom assembled to order.
Typical Time in transit for UPS Ground shipping from Peoria, Illinois:
International orders are shipped by your choice of either UPS or USPS. The website calculates the shipping charges automatically. You can see the shipping fee in the first step of the checkout process.
UPS carries your package from end-to-end and delivery is usually only 3 days.
USPS only handles the package until it reaches the destination country. From there it must go through customs and is handled by your local postal service. Lost or damaged packages cannot be reported for 45 days and no later than 6 months from the date of shipping.
A documentation and administration fee is built in to your shipping calculation.
Charges for brokerage and duty/tariffs (assessed by your government) will be collected at the time of delivery - COD (we cannot give any estimates for these charges). These additional charges can often be higher than the value of the ordered merchandise.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee delivery dates. If merchandise is held in Customs or if your postal service is slow to deliver, we have no control of this.
