Domestic Orders

FidelityOptics will ship all of our products to destinations within the United States. We offer UPS Groundtrack, 3-Day Select, 2nd Day Air and Next Day Air options to most areas within the 50 states. All UPS options are fully insured and have tracking numbers. OPT also offers United States Postal Service (USPS) shipping options including USPS Priority and USPS Parcel Post. These USPS options do not offer tracking and tend to be slower than UPS options. They can be less expensive on some shipments and are also a good option for PO boxes. Unfortunately, we don’t ship to APO or FPO addresses.

If you wish to check the shipping costs for an individual item, simply add it to the shopping card, then enter your shipping address. Our calculator will show UPS shipping options as well as all available USPS options.

International Orders

FidelityOptics is pleased to support the international science and outdoor communities, and is happy to be able to ship orders worldwide! We can ship most of our products overseas, yet there are some restricted items that we cannot ship outside of the United States. Some of these restrictions are complicated, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

We use multiple companies to ship products internationally. Our main carrier is UPS. UPS has three international shipping options, Express (2 to 3 day delivery) Saver (2 to 4 day delivery) and Expedited (4 to 5 day delivery). UPS also offers a Canada Standard shipping method for our customers in Canada. This is a ground option and can be cost effective for some orders. UPS shipping is very accurate and extremely fast, but is more expensive than some alternative options.

We also offer shipping options from the United States Postal Service, or USPS. USPS offers International Express (3 to 5 days) and International Priority (6 to 10 days) for those looking for less expensive shipping options.

Customs fees/tariffs are not included in shipping calculations and are not the responsibility of FidelityOptics. For these fees, please contact your local customs office.

Free Shipping

FidelityOptics offers free shipping on a large number of the products on our website. Free shipping is available to customers in the 48 contiguous U.S. states. We’ll make every effort to provide free shipping to Alaska and Hawaii, be we can’t guarantee free shipping for all items to all locations.

Most free shipping items will ship via UPS Ground with full insurance. However, we reserve the right to use the United States Postal Service (USPS) or a drop-shipment directly from the manufacturer when necessary. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Orders sent with a signature required are at our discretion. If you need a signature required stipulation, please contact us. A signature required will be an additional fee of $4 per box shipped.

Billing Address and Delays in Shipping

We will verify that the name and billing address on your order matches the name and address on the credit card account you’ve provided for payment of your order. If they don’t match, your order will be delayed so that we can contact you in an effort to receive the correct information. We may also contact you to verify your approval of a shipping address that is different than the billing address.

Thank you for choosing FidelityOptics!
