Notes About Saturday Delivery

Saturday Delivery rates are handled a bit differently than a standard shipping method because they're classified as Value-Added Services. This means, if you know and want your shipment to be delivered on a Saturday when that would not normally be available, you can pay extra to have UPS or FedEx deliver that package on Saturday.

Please note that the fee will be charged regardless of whether the package is delivered on Saturday or not. Thus, you must be aware of the time table by which to send your package for Saturday Delivery rates to apply.

Additionally, Saturday Delivery is only available for certain services via UPS and FedEx, so make sure that your selected service supports the Saturday Delivery rate. Also, double-check the ship date of the package to be certain it is correct.

For more details about Saturday delivery, see ShipStation's blog post Do USPS, UPS, and FedEx Offer Saturday and Sunday Delivery?
