An item is missing from my shipment.
If you have ordered an item which ships from another location (custom items and deck equipment are two common examples) it will be shipped separately. Some large/heavy items may also ship separately, please check your order confirmation to confirm if your order will be arriving in multiple shipments. If all of your invoiced items shipped from our warehouse and what you have received does not match your packing list, please contact our customer service center so that we may assist you.
My product is missing parts.
Please check the item description on our website for an account of any special parts or pamphlets which should be included with your item. If they are missing, please contact customer service and we will investigate.
What is a backorder?
A backorder occurs when an item has recently and unexpectedly run out of stock. To ensure that you receive your order in a timely fashion, we may cancel any backordered items from your order and refund you fully for those items. Please contact customer service for more details.
Orders received by 6:00 PM EST Monday - Friday, are typically shipped the same day. Orders placed after 6:00 PM EST will ship the following business day. Please check the item description on the product page for specific information on its shipping time; certain large/heavy and custom items cannot be expedited.
How do I calculate my delivery time?
To calculate your delivery time, start from the business day after your expected ship date. For example, if your package ships on Monday, Tuesday will be the first day of transit. If your package ships on Friday, Monday will be the first day of transit, and so on. An order with 1-2 Day shipping that is assigned a tracking number on Monday should arrive by Wednesday, the second business day.
Do you ship to my country?
We are currently shipping orders within the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. If you are a Canadian customer, please click the flag at the top right hand corner of the site and select your country to view items approved for shipping to Canada. For International Customers, click here.
SwimOutlet.com is proud to supply members of our Armed Forces around the globe. Due to processing requirements, APO/FPO shipments are typically handed over to USPS within 3-4 business days of placing your order. During peak seasons and holidays it may take longer. Please allow up to 8 weeks for delivery after you place your order. Unfortunately, tracking information is not available for APO/FPO shipments. We thank you for your patience.
How do I track my shipment?
Click the "My Account / Order Status" link at the top right hand side of our site to track your order. When your order ships, a shipping confirmation email will also be sent to you with instructions on how to track your package.
When will I get my order?
We ship most orders from our warehouse in Ohio. Customers who select standard shipping receive their orders in 5 business days or less, depending upon your proximity to our location. Some large/heavy or custom items may ship directly from the manufacturer and require additional time for delivery. Please allow for weekends, holidays and/or inclement weather delays when calculating your ship time, and remember that the day your order is shipped does not factor into the time in transit.
How do I qualify for Free Shipping?
Most orders over $49 are eligible for free Standard 3-5 Business Day shipping, or free 1-2 Business Day shipping for orders over $99. Restrictions apply to select large/heavy items, and orders bound for Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, & APO/FPO destinations. Expedited shipping options are not available for large/heavy items or orders that receive a quantity discount, and the value of these items will not be applied towards free 1-2 Business Day shipping.
Should I ship to my PO Box or my street address?
If you are unable to receive USPS deliveries at your street address, we recommend a PO Box address for standard shipping. Expedited orders are delivered via FedEx. FedEx does not deliver to PO Boxes.
What is FedEx Smart Post?
FedEx SmartPost is a hybrid delivery service that combines FedEx with USPS. The initial segment of delivery is handled by FedEx; the package is then transferred to USPS near the parcel's destination. Final delivery is made by your local postal carrier.
How much is shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico?
At this time we offer flat rate shipping exclusively. This allows us to keep our shipping prices low, regardless of the size of the order. Due to the increased cost of shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico, we must charge a higher flat rate fee of $12.99. Orders shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico are ineligible for free or $4.99 shipping at this time. Depending on the size and weight of the package, it may actually cost us more than $12.99 to ship the order. Regardless, we maintain a flat rate shipping structure as we find that it is the most convenient and fair option for our customers.
What are Direct From Manufacturer Shipments?
Select items are shipped to you directly from the manufacturer due to size and/or weight. If your item falls under this category it will be indicated in your shopping cart. Any specific guidelines regarding returns and shipping times will be detailed on the product page.

When will my credit appear on my account?
Credits usually take a maximum of 7-10 business days to post from the time we receive your item(s), but this is dependent upon your bank's policy. Check with your financial institution for accurate information regarding their holding times.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be charged when your order is placed.
Why was I charged twice for my order?
Any order attempt may result in a pending charge showing on your credit card, even should the transaction be declined. These pending charges usually clear within 2-3 business days, though it varies from bank to bank. You may wish to contact customer service to confirm that such orders are cancelled.
Why was my credit card declined?
Most declined transactions are the result of some information being entered incorrectly. Please confirm your address, credit card number, expiration date, and cvv2 number before attempting to place the order again. If you have moved or changed addresses recently, you may wish to try using your prior address in the Billing Address field. If all information in our systems is accurate, please contact your credit card company and confirm the address that is listed for the primary account holder. Only a small percentage of transactions are declined due to credit card balance concerns.
Why was my order returned to your facility?
In cases of a package being deemed undeliverable by the courier, the parcel will be redirected to the original shipper. This usually occurs due to an address error, such as listing a P.O. Box for a Next Day shipping order or inputting an incorrect zip code.
