All orders will be fulfilled and shipped within 48 hours after you place your order. Orders will be shipped via UPS anywhere within the United States. Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii are subject to different rates, which will automatically display when you place an order on line. We are unable to ship to P.O. boxes. Italian Harvest will not be responsible for any extra charges that may occur due to incorrect ship-to addresses. Contact our office immediately if you realize a mistake had been made and we will make an adjustment if the order has not yet shipped.

Perishable Items

We ship perishable items (such as chocolate) on Monday and Tuesday for arrival Wednesday through Friday. Due to varying weather conditions and distance from California, shipments of perishable items to certain states may require expedited delivery. Perishable items are shipped with ice packs and then placed in an outer box for further protection.

Expedited Delivery

Expedited delivery options are available Monday - Friday for orders within the United States. Saturday and Sunday are not considered delivery days, so please allow time for your order to reach its' destination on the expedited date you prefer. (For example, orders placed on Thursday via 2nd Day Air will arrive on Monday at the earliest). Please call the office if you have questions regarding expedited shipments.

Standard Shipping Charges

Shipping charges are calculated per ship-to address as well as total weight. Shipping rates are determined at the time of check out.

Shipping your Order

Before your order is fully submitted, the UPS Ground Residential shipping fee will appear. Your order will ship from SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, zip code 94080, therefore the ship date windows below may be exaggerated, depending on the shipping destination.
