For the fastest delivery times possible we ship all orders placed before 3pm SAME DAY.
The Saltwater Edge offers FREE SHIPPING on orders over $100 (excluding some oversize items such as rods) within the United States. Delivery times for free shipping range from 1 to 5 days and typically ship either UPS Ground or USPS Priority.
For orders under $100 we offer a large selection of options at the lowest prices possible from UPS and USPS, including under $4 for small orders under 1 pound.
Rods have a flat rate shipping charge listed below. A valid street address is required for all deliveries.
Note: First time customers will be asked to establish an order history before shipping to alternate addresses. Customers choosing overnight shipping may be contacted for verification and verbal approval.
How much does it cost?
Shipping costs are determined by the size and dimensions of your order as well as your location.
Just need something small? Maybe a lure or two? Your shipping charge could be VERY low - even under $4 for a single plug or other small items that stay under 1 pound including the box.
You'll have options from least expensive when you want to save money to the very fastest for when your order just can't wait. Keep in mind many around New England, New York, and New Jersey will receive orders within 2 days and often overnight even with our least expensive shipping.
Rod Shipping Charges
Rods over $250 are $12.99. Rods under $250 are $14.99. Rods under $125 are $19.99.
We'd love to offer free shipping on rods, but reality is it's very expensive these days. And the heavy duty shipping tubes we use aren't cheap either.
Before shipping we'll inspect the rod carefully before packing it to make sure it leaves the SWE in perfect condition.
Do you offer Expedited Shipping?
Absolutely. Everything from First Class to Second Day to Overnight are available at checkout from both UPS and USPS.
Impact of Covid-19 on Shipping
Covid has had substantial impacts on all shippers; FedEx, UPS, USPS and more. As the world has more than ever depended on them combined with funding issues for USPS, shipping issues have greatly increased. It is not uncommon for both UPS and USPS tracking to say "delivered", yet take another day or 2.
If your tracking says "delivered" but you don't have it, let us know, but often it will show up within the next day or 2.
The Saltwater Edge ships via USPS Priority International. A street address is required for all deliveries. International shipping prices are quoted in U.S. dollars and must be prepaid in U.S. funds. Duties and taxes, if imposed on your order, are due at time of delivery (these charges are not calculated during checkout and are not collected by The Saltwater Edge). Please consult your local customs office for more details about duties and taxes.
For first time orders outside the U.S., we require purchases to be made using PayPal. This helps us decrease fraudulent orders, and keep the transaction safe. PayPal has always been an option on our site, as many users utilize it for their orders both domestically and internationally. All orders made with Credit Card will be canceled and refunded. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
