Olympia Provisions Shipping FAQs

DO YOU OFFER FREE SHIPPING?

YES!:

When the order totals $50 or more, shipping is free on orders of dried salami, pepperettes, pickles, and apparel! Please peruse our "Free Shipping.." page for some fun products!

- AND -

NO:
Please note that while we charge additional shipping fresh product like sweetheart hamcapicola, frankfurters, terrines, and fresh sausages, we do our very best to keep these expenses as low as possible. 

WHEN WILL I GET MY ORDER?

  • Every morning, we print all orders and deliver them to the packaging crew at 8:00 am PST, and the shipments leave that afternoon.  We due our best to limit the amount of time our product is in transit, especially in the warmer months. 
  • For standard non-refrigerated shipping items, orders placed by 8:00 am PST on Wednesday will arrive by Saturday via USPS Priority Mail.  FedEx does not deliver on Saturday, so please keep that in mind.  *Please note that First Class Mail is not a guaranteed service, so we don’t know exactly when it will arrive. 
  • Refrigerated shipments must arrive within 48-hours of leaving our shop, so we send these items by FedEx no later than Wednesday afternoon. 

 

WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH TO SHIP MY ORDER?

In order to receive meat that is still fresh when it gets to you, it must be sent in an insulated container with a lot of ice...Florida, Arizona… I’m looking at you. By the time we’re done, a 2.5lb ham is now an 8lb meat sanctuary.  While it's necessary to add additional weight to our fresh products, we get a great discount on shipping rates that we pass on to you.


TO SAVE MONEY ON SHIPPING, TRY ONE OF THESE SNEAKY TACTICS:

  • You may be able to get our product locally. Take a look at the retailers in your area. You may find one near you.
  • Split your order. Let’s say you’re buying a European Sampler in a red gift box, and a pound of our delicious kielbasa. The sampler, being $50, will ship for free, but because of the kielbasa, you have to ship the whole shebang in the insulated, iced, 2 day package. It may very well be worth ordering twice to keep from paying a ton of shipping for something that doesn’t need it. We save your information, so this wouldn't take long! 
  • You can also wow your neighborhood by recommending to your local grocer or cheese shop that you’d like to be able to buy our products there. Pass on our contact info, or include their contact information in your order notes and we’ll reach out to them directly!

SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY:

  • We've recently started shipping to Canada and are learning some important things about it.  To keep your package moving along, please Provide the Contact Information of the Recipient.  This enables the collection of VAT tax on the imported goods.  We're working on how to pre-pay those taxes, and will keep you posted.
  • Also, if you're shipping the Salami of the Month Club to a Canadian address, we'll set it up as four shipments of three salami each quarter. This helps keep the transit fees down and the salami fresh.
  • Right now, we don't offer service to any other countries.  Keep us on your radar though, we'll get there!
