Stablegear Tack is set up with a PayPal Shopping cart. You do not have to have a PayPal account in order to use a credit card to pay. If you prefer not to pay on line you may always call me directly to place an order and I'll take your card over the phone. I also accept USPS money orders and personal checks from established customers. All payment must be in US dollars. Sales Tax will be added to purchases shipped to a Missouri Address.
Most payment services require that shipments be sent to a confirmed address. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that their shipping address is updated and correct before placing an order. We will gladly agree to ship to another address, especially if you are purchasing a gift for someone else. PayPal offers the option to add numerous addresses into your account and you would only have to choose that address when completing your transaction on the PayPal website.
This shopping cart is set up so you need to put the item in the cart and enter your zip code in order to see what the shipping charges will be. If the item description indicates "Shipping Included" in the item description there should be no additional charge showing. If the item is priced with "shipping included" and you ask it to calculate shipping charges, the only shipping option that will show is "customer pick up at a ride". The item will ship by USPS unless you request UPS or I have UPS noted in the item description.
"Shipping Included" applies only to addresses within the continental United States.
The cart uses "Calculated Shipping by Weight" USPS or UPS shipping calculator. The new USPS Ground Advantage replaces 1st Class parcel for shipments 1# or less.
I've had some UPS calculations come back calculated for "Sure Post" which is where USPS handles the local delivery.
In some cases (larger, heavy packages that won't fit in a flat rate box) shipping by UPS is better. I will let you know in advance if your package will come by UPS. If you prefer to have your package delivered by UPS contact me for a shipping quote before paying.
In stock items are normally shipped the next business day after payment is confirmed. All special orders and made to order items are shipped as soon as possible. I can usually give a pretty good idea when that will be when you place the order.
The cost of International Shipping has gone up dramatically, in many cases making it very costly to ship common items to our customers outside of the United States. For this reason, International Shipping has not been incorporated into the shopping cart, but upon request, we can invoice our customers who have a serious interest in having their items shipped via USPS International Mail. We will ship most items, provided they are not prohibited and/or restricted by the purchasers home country. Purchasers will be liable for any tariffs or taxes charged by their Post Office upon receipt. Please be aware, there is no tracking available once your purchase reaches customs and leaves the United States Border. A list of restrictions can be viewed here at the United States Post Office Website: https://pe.usps.com/text/imm/ab_toc.htm
