Delivery & Shipping

Our Domestic Shipping Rules are simple.  We will always try to ship every order within two (2) business days however for obvious reasons this cannot be guaranteed.  All orders received after 12:00 PM ET may not ship until the next business day.  Once the order is picked up by the shipping company, we will email you an order status that will include the tracking information.

Shipping Process: Our main shipping companies are UPS (United Parcel Service) or USPS (United States Postal Services), and are the shipping companies that we will be using on a day to day basis. If you wish to arrange the pick-up of your order by another carrier utilizing your own account with them then you must call our distribution center in Miami to place your order.  The number to call is 877-976-5326

Shipping Costs: To calculate shipping rate add items to your cart and select your location. During checkout you will be able to select from a variety of shipping options that provide a range of shipping costs. Shipping costs are calculated automatically by our system according to the weight and shipping address destination.

Large Orders: Orders with more than 6 boxes may ship via a Freight company. We may contact you before we prepare your order with an updated shipping cost. Please expect a call from the freight company, Old Dominion, who will schedule an appointment to deliver your order. Additional services requested by customer, such as the use of a forklift or inside delivery, may incur additional charges to customer. The Artisan Spot reserves the right to charge your account for charges made above the paid shipping charges on an order.

Rush Orders: If you need same day shipping, require UPS Saturday Delivery, or have other urgent shipping needs, please place your order over the phone 877-976-5326. Customer Service personnel are available weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. EST.  We will always try to assist you but we cannot guarantee that the order will be shipped the same day since we are dependent on the shipping company hours of service.

Shipping Address Accuracy

Our systems automatically ship to the address you provide during checkout. Please ensure its accuracy.  In case a shipment is undeliverable, refused, or delivered to an incorrect address (incorrect zip code, missing apartment/suite/office number/name, etc.) due to customer error, the customer will be charged for both the original shipment charges and any additional charges if the carrier charges us to return the item to us (a common UPS practice).  If you want us to re-ship your item, you must pay shipping costs a second time. If you do not want it re-shipped, we will treat your package as if it was a return.

Change of address: If a shipping address is changed during the transit of package(s), and there are additional charges made by the freight or shipping company, the additional charge will be charged to customer.

Out of Stock Items & Backorders

We attempt to have an accurate and updated inventory of our products to provide you with immediate availability. In the unlikely case that a product is out of stock, we will notify you by the next business day. At this point, you will have the option to cancel the order or place it on backorder. Most backorders are fulfilled within three to five weeks.  Please be aware that we also carry a line of antique decorating plates as well as Yadró and NAO figurines that are unique and cannot be replaced.  If you order one of these items that had been sold, we will not be able to replace your order because of the uniqueness of the art piece and you will be advised within 24 hours that the item cannot be replaced.  The order will cancel automatically.

In the case that a backorder is not completed within the allotted time you may choose to cancel the order, or continue to wait. You may also choose to have The Artisan Spot; Inc ship the portions of your order that are in stock. Your remaining or complete order will be shipped as soon as the product(s) arrive(s) to our warehouse.

International Orders

We offer multiple methods of international shipping, but they usually break down into two categories: slow and economical or fast and expensive. If you select an economical method please expect your package to take from two to four weeks for delivery, sometimes longer due to delays in customs. UPS Worldwide Expedited shipping usually arrives in four to seven business days and is highly recommended for international orders.

The quality and timeliness of Postal Services vary by country. As a result, orders sent to addresses outside the United States are sent at the customer’s risk. If you want a quick delivery and point-to-point tracking, please select a UPS shipping method or Priority Mail International from the US Postal Service. You may also call to place your order and use your FedEx or DHL account for shipping.

Duty (or customs tariffs) are not included in the item price or shipping charges, and are the buyer’s responsibility. Duty is set by the destination country’s customs authorities and is determined based on a combination of the country of origin or manufacturing of the goods being purchased, and the classification of that merchandise in accordance with a harmonized system. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are usually collected by the carrier on delivery but may also be billed later.
