Expedited Shipping

Note: Our distribution centers are closed on the weekend - Orders DO NOT ship on Saturday or Sunday. 

Is an Item Eligible for Same Day Shipping?

Cokesbury fills and ships orders from multiple locations and sources. We ship products from our own warehouse and also ship products directly from major distributors and individual publishers/manufacturers. Each of these methods has its own timelines for shipping products to our customers. Items available for same day or expedited shipping display a shipping indicator on their product page designating their eligibility.

Products in the Cokesbury Warehouse

Products stocked in the Cokesbury warehouse are eligible for same day shipment if the following criteria are met:

  • The item is showing in-stock
  • The item shows "Eligible for Expedited Shipping" in the Add to Cart box and in the Shopping Cart 
  • The order is received by 1:35 PM CST

Orders received after 1:35 PM CST for in-stock items will ship the next day.

Products Shipped from a Distributor or Publisher

Products that are shipped from a partner distributor or publisher will state “Ships from a Cokesbury Connect Partner” on the product detail page.

If one of these products is eligible for expedited shipping, you will see a message asking if you want the item delivered by a certain day, as well as what ship method you should choose if you do.

If your order is placed after 8:35 AM CST, it will require an extra day for processing, regardless of the shipping method chosen.

Some distributors do not process expedited shipments on orders from Cokesbury. Products from these distributors will reflect "Not Eligible for Expedited Shipping" on the product detail page. When viewed from the shopping cart, these products will not show an “Estimated Delivery” time frame.
