Customer Information
Postal Service Priority Mail® products and First-Class® packages may temporarily require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This change is effective April 17, 2020.
Priority Mail's two-day and three-day service commitments will be extended to three days and four days, respectively. Customers will continue to receive improved product tracking and as much as $50 in free insurance.
First-Class Package Service® two and three day service commitments will be extended to three and four days respectively. Medication remains a priority in all areas of transportation, processing and delivery.
 Global Express Guaranteed® Services also have been altered. For a full list of international and domestic updates, refer to usps.com.

Similar to the estimated shipping date, the estimated delivery date is when a customer can reasonably expect the order to arrive. For shipping methods that are not guaranteed, this date may actually be a window of days.

It may be established once an order is in the carrier’s hands (at which point it may also change). Shipping delays happen for a variety of reasons, but this estimate helps the customer plan for it.

Cut off time - Every company has a cut off time, the cut off time is the last call for the time it takes to get the order packaged and then off to shipping to get a shipping label. example if cut off time is 11am and you order at 11:01 chances are you're product will wait for the next day, If that's a Friday that means you product just got delayed by 2 days! Until Monday to get it shipped. 

Processing Time is when a package goes through a headquarters computers to the warehouse to package and then to the shipping department to put a shipping label on it to wait for the shipping service to pick up (normally at the end of day). 

Shipping Time is the actual traveling in between the warehouse and the handling of the package outside of the company.on the USPS truck. 

BOTTOM LINE If you need your product the NEXT DAY or 2nd Day then PAY the extra $100 bucks for guaranteed service!
