We greatly apologize for any inconvenience, but we are working to return back to 24 hour shipping turnarounds ASAP as we rapidly expand our capacity to meet surging demand. Thank you for your patience!

Generally speaking, in-stock orders ship within 24 hours Monday-Friday. Orders received after 1200 EDT will ship the following business day. We strongly encourage all customers to NOT use USPS as they continue to have delivery issues that started in 2020.
Occasionally, we have days where we have to ship large orders to our government and enterprise customers or we have an order that requires additional verification/follow-up on our end (incorrect or incomplete shipping addresses are the most common causes, especially with APO/FPO addresses). On those days and in those instances, it is possible that some orders received before 1400 EDT that day will ship the next shipping day or after we make contact with you. Please keep a close eye on your inbox until your order is received.
We absolutely ship to any APO/FPO address everyday. Please be sure to select USPS as your carrier during checkout as the Postal Service is the only carrier that can ship to APO/FPO addresses.

Shipping Costs, Import Duties, Taxes:
We have no control over what carriers charge to ship packages and what sovereign governments levy as taxes and/or import duties. The shipping charges displayed in your cart during checkout represent the most cost-effective options available in the market at that time. Unfortunately, we do not have any ability to change them or influence them as these costs are 100% controlled by the carriers and host nation governments. Last, but certainly not least, we will not modify declared customs values for anyone under any circumstance. It is illegal and you need to take that issue up with your own government, not us.
In shipping orders all over the world, we've learned a few tips and tricks for the best ways to ship things to just about anywhere internationally. So, we thought we'd assemble them here in an effort to help you get what you need as quickly as possible with minimal headache and minimal cost.
We have no control over the Customs/Duties charged on import orders by other countries governments.
International Shipments invariably will travel a long way to get to you. While we take great care in packing your order, we always recommend minimizing the time in transit (quickest shipping method) to have the least chance of an issue on the way.
Per ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations), we will not export armor of any kind outside of the United States of America.
We reserve the right to hold for verification or cancel and refund any order attempting to use a Freight Forwarding service designed to circumvent Qore Performance Shipping Policy. Orders placed to Freight Forwarding services will be held for verification and may be charged a 25% Verification Administration Fee.
If you have placed an order with us using a Freight Forwarder to a Prohibited Country, we will reach out to you via email to begin the verification process. Verification may take up to two months from the time the order is placed. We will begin the verification process once we receive the requested information back from you.
Returns and Exchanges
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, we will gladly accept returns for a refund or exchange.
As a customer of ours, you likely know better than most that unsavory characters are just part of life. As such, we've had to write this "fine print" to make sure a few bad apples don't ruin things for everyone:
All orders (Domestic and International) that are placed and then cancelled prior to shipment are subject to a Cancellation Fee equal to the transaction fees imposed on Qore Performance® by e-commerce platforms, credit card companies, payment processors, shippers, and any other service provider involved in the transaction who charge us, but do not refund us in the event of a cancelled order. Cancellation Fees may equal 100% of the purchase price for any and all orders placed from/by any country to which we do not ship (see list above). We do not make any net profit off of this fee for orders placed from/by countries to whom we sell. It simply prevents us from losing money on cancelled transactions.
We hope this is helpful, but should you find you still have questions about your International order, give us a call during business hours (0800-1800 EDT, M-F) at 703.755.0724 or email us 24/7/365 by click here. If we have an internet connection and are awake, we always respond in less than 24 hours and we typically respond much sooner.
