Southeast ID Shipping Policy

Because we have such a large in-stock inventory, we are able to ship 90% of orders within 24 business hours (holidays and weekends excluded) pending credit card verification. Once orders have shipped from, you may use the tracking number we email you (typically within 24 hours of product shipment) to track your order progress by visiting our Order Tracking page (you must log in to your Southeast ID account to track an order). Or, track your order directly through UPS using the tracking number provided.

Need it Faster?

Expedited shipping options are also available for most items, including next-day and 2-day air delivery. Shipping upgrade options and costs vary. Select your preferred upgrade during the checkout process or call for more details. Please allow extra time for delivery to remote addresses. Please note that orders with expedited shipping still require our standard 24 hour order processing time.

APO, FPO, & PO Box Addresses

Due to fraud associated with APO, FPO, and PO box addresses, we have special requirements. We may require payment via bank wire to process orders using APO/FPO. We cannot ship to PO boxes; please arrange to have products shipped to your physical address, either home or business. We apologize and thank you in advance for your understanding.
