Shipping and Delivery Information ^


Shipping and Delivery

  • What are my shipping options?
  • How are my shipping costs calculated?
  • Can I have an order delivered on a weekend?
  • When will my order be shipped?
  • What do I do if my order is late?
  • What if my package is damaged when it is delivered?

What are my shipping options?

Standard: Usually 1-5 business days depending on your location.
  • Standard Ground Delivery usually arrives within 1 to 5 business days to most American cities
  • Delivery times to Alaska and Hawaii may vary.
At present, Mr. Costumes can only ship products within the 50 states. Mr. Costumes cannot fill or ship international orders.

How are my shipping costs calculated?

We estimate all of our shipping charges by weight, delivery / ship to locations and shipping methods. Actual shipping charges may apply.

Can I have an order delivered on a weekend?

Mr. Costumes does not currently provide for Saturday or Sunday deliveries.

When will my order be shipped?

Most orders are shipped within 1 business day.

If I place my order today, when will I receive it?

The time it will take for you to receive your order depends upon where you live and what shipping method you select. Most items ship out the same business day if ordered before 12 p.m. which means Standard Ground Delivery usually arrives within 1 to 5 business days to most American cities.
You also have the option to expedite shipping with Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air Service. Please add the item to the cart and enter your zip code to show the actual shipping charges for each option.

What do I do if my order is late?

If the expected delivery time listed with your choice of shipping has expired, and tracking information does not help, please contact us immediately (if by email, at CustomerService@MrCostumes.com.). Your order may be late because no one was available to accept delivery. If you are not present when a delivery is attempted, the carrier will make a second attempt, and often a third. If delivery is still not made, the shipment will be returned to our warehouse, and you will be responsible for any additional shipping charges. You must report to us any undelivered order within 25 days of the date you placed the order. If you are not present when a delivery is attempted, the carrier will make a second attempt, and often a third. If delivery is still not made, the shipment will be returned to our warehouse, and you will be responsible for any additional shipping charges.

What if my package is damaged when it is delivered?

If your package arrives damaged, you may refuse delivery at no cost to you. Please contact us immediately (if by email, at CustomerService@MrCostumes.com) so that we can correct the situation as soon as possible.

Security


  • Is online ordering really safe?
  • How private is my personal information?

Is online ordering really safe? What about those stories I've heard where credit card information was stolen?

Those stories began with a Web site that didn't have adequate security. Ours does. Yes. In conjunction with Verisign (www.verisign.com), Mr.Costumes uses 256-bit encryption to protect information entered -- some of the most powerful encryption available today.
Basically, encryption encodes your information. To steal your information from the Internet, someone must first find your encrypted information packet (which is flying across the Internet at light speed) - then crack the code. Nobody has ever claimed that this has been done. Indeed, if it were possible, the most sensitive information in the world would be available to them - not just your credit card number.
Look at it this way: you probably already transmit your credit card number electronically every day. When you swipe your credit card at the local store, your card information is encrypted and transmitted over a phone network. Using your card on a secure online Web site is very similar - your information is encrypted and then transmitted over a high-speed network line.

How private is my personal information?

We use any information you provide to us only to serve you better. We do not trade or sell your personal information to anyone.

What if the product is defective?

All products sold by Mr. Costumes are under the full manufacturer's warranty. Our goal is to correct the situation as quickly as possible. Some manufacturers require direct contact from you to arrange returns or exchanges.
