We no longer take credit cards over the phone and only take PayPal over the phone or checks and money orders through the mail for payment on the stuff we sale.
We thought it would be helpful to explain how long it takes for you to get your order from CutlersCove.com and our payment methods.
For all items paid for with PayPal it takes about one day or less to get the clear funds to us and get your item or items paid for. So this means we ship your item or items the same day or the next business day. If we ship your item by USPS Priority Mail you will get it in about 2 to 3 days after we ship it.
Checks and money orders
First we must get your payment and that can take about 7 days give or take a few days. Remember we are in Texas. For all items paid for with checks and money orders it takes about two weeks to get the clear funds to us and get your item or items paid for. So this means we ship your item or items about two weeks after we get your payment. If we ship your item by USPS Priority Mail you will get it in about 2 to 3 days after we ship it. If we ship your item by UPS Ground service you will get it in about 5 to 7 days after we ship it.
USPS Money Order – USPS (United States Postal Service)
If you pay for your order with a USPS Money Order we can cash the USPS Money Order the same day we get your order while we are at the Post Office here in our town and ship your item the next business day. Other money orders do not have this feature for fast clear funds in our hands, only USPS Money Orders work this way. We will accept any money order but all other money orders or checks must go through our bank and they do not guarantee the funds until the money order or check clears.
The only items we sell that must be paid for by check or money order is ammunition and shotshells. PayPal does not allow ammunition to be purchased through their payment system. Please understand, this is NOT our rule but is PayPal’s rule.
For fastest service on ammunition and shotshell orders send a USPS Money Order. You will save about two weeks in delivery time.
You must be 18 or older to purchase ammunition. Check your local laws for any regulations before ordering any ammunition products. Live shotgun shells can only be shipped by UPS and they charge a service fee for shipping ammo in addition to their normal shipping charge. Therefore shipping is higher for these shells than our normal shipping charge. Shipping will be via UPS Ground only! A physical address will be necessary as UPS does not deliver to Post Office Boxes. To order call us and will be glad to hold what you want for 5 days to allow you to send us a money order or check. We only sell shotshells with a money order or check because PayPal does not allow ammunition to be purchased through their payment system. Please understand, this is NOT our rule but is PayPal’s rule.
Most orders we ship have a tracking number or delivery conformation number and we will be glad to email that number to you if we have your email address.
The above shipping times are for the 48 states and will be longer if outside the continental United States. All shipping times are approximate and can vary by season and the shipping load each shipper has at the time we ship your item. Expect longer shipping times around holidays such as Christmas and others. We do not control shipping times after your item leaves our business but we do work hard to box and ship fast each order.
If you have a question about our shipping times, delivery times or your order please call or email and we will glad to help you.
Note: merchandise will not be shipped until payment is verified which can take up to 14 days for checks and most money orders after we receive payment. We may hold the shotshells or product for the funds to clear before shipping but we will ship or return your funds guaranteed. We are aware that checks drawn on accounts with sufficient funds may clear much quicker, but, checks that are rejected for insufficient funds take one to two weeks to be returned to us, hence the 14 day policy.
