Credit and Debit Cards ¶
If you are paying by credit or debit card, your statement will show a charge from IFIXIT.
We are unable to accept prepaid gift cards at this time.
Credit card information is stored using industry-standard strong encryption in our secure database.
All orders paid via credit or debit card are subject to billing address verification. The billing address is the address at which you receive your credit card statement and is on file with the bank. Orders with an unmatched billing address are subject to cancellation without notice.
Orders may require additional verification for one or more reasons, including using a different billing and shipping address.
To expedite the verification process, please ensure that the shipping address for the order is listed as an alternate address with your credit card company. If the shipping address is not listed on your credit card as an alternate address, we reserve the right to require additional documentation or cancel your order.

Our turnaround time to ship your order is normally within one business day. Shipping cutoff time is 1:00 P.M. Pacific Time. There are some exceptions where an order may ship out later than one business day. If this is the case for your order, then the estimated delivery date presented at checkout will take the actual ship date into account.
You will receive a shipment tracking number for all domestic shipping options, FedEx shipments, USPS Priority International and Express Priority International shipments.
Guaranteed, Express, and FedEx shipping options do not ship to U.S. P.O. Boxes, APO, FPO, or DPO addresses. If you need to ship to a P.O. Box, APO, FPO, or DPO address, you must choose Standard as your shipping method.
At this time, orders containing lithium-ion batteries can only be shipped using the Standard shipping method. You can learn more about battery shipment restrictons and delivery timeframes here.
iFixit's headquarters and United States warehouse is located in and ships from San Luis Obispo, California.
Local Pickup ¶
If you live in the San Luis Obispo area, you may arrange to pick up your order any time from 3-5 P.M. Monday through Friday.
To do so, please follow our local pickup instructions here.
Local pickup is available for in-stock items currently for sale in our warehouse. Items not in our warehouse may take additional time to acquire and may or may not be available for pickup. Please contact us before placing your order to determine if the product you want is available for pickup.
We ship to all 50 states (including US territories and APO/FPO/DPO addresses).
We offer a few different levels of shipping. All available options for shipping will be presented during checkout. If it's not present, it's not available. Currently, we ship with USPS and UPS.
Our standard shipping is the cheapest method we offer, but it's also the laziest. Typically, it can take 3-5 business days to be delivered, but is not guaranteed. It really depends on how much they fed the pack mule before they left. If you haven't received the package by the estimated delivery date, check the tracking number in your order history for any alerts or delivery updates.
Guaranteed (iFixit Recommends!)
Scared of the small dash between the 3-5 days on standard shipping method? This shipping method is guaranteed to arrive by the delivery date provided by the carrier. If you have run into an issue, or the package hasn't been delivered on time, check the tracking. If you need assistance, please contact us. Weather delays do happen from time to time, and aren't able to be refunded.
If you like things fast, this may be the shipping method for you. Express is guaranteed to arrive by the end of the delivery day provided by the carrier. It is our best shipping method for speed and efficiency. You'll be holding this package in your hand by the time you figure out how to properly pronounce 'PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS'.
Express AM (iFixit Pro Members Only)
"I needed that package yesterday!" is the mantra of users selecting this shipping method. This is our fastest shipping method available and may be considered a variation of ludicrous speed. The package is guaranteed to be there by the morning of the delivery date provided by the carrier. Not available in all areas.
iFixit's mission is a global mission. We are committed to providing excellent service and support for the global community. With that being said, international shipping can be complicated so we want to provide you as much information as we can. If after reading all of this, you have specific questions, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you.
For some international orders, we may ask for a credit card verification form in order to process your order. It protects the cardholder and iFixit against fraudulent transactions.
When using your credit card, you will be billed in USD Currency and your credit card company will bill you with your local currency at the current exchange rate.
International shipments may be subject to import taxes, duties and/or customs fees. These fees are the sole responsibility of the recipient. If a shipment is refused and returned, you will be responsible for any import taxes and/or return shipping costs incurred by iFixit. These fees are specific for the destination country. Therefore, we do not know what the amount will be. The shipping and handling fee applied by iFixit at checkout does NOT cover any duties, taxes or brokerage fees. Please be prepared to pay these fees when your package is delivered. If the package is refused or returned to us, all customs charges or fees will be charged to you. For more details about import fees, check out the 'International Duties, Taxes, and Other Fees' section below.
Sometimes your country's customs department will require additional information in order to clear your shipment for delivery. If they ask you for an invoice or commercial invoice, you can find a copy of that by looking at your order history under your profile. If you need further assistance, please contact us.

Duties, Taxes and Other Fees ¶
Shipping Cost: This is the cost charged by iFixit at checkout to cover the cost of the shipping method you select for your order. Unless explicitly stated in writing by an iFixit representative, it does not cover any of the following:
Duties and Taxes: These are applied by your country's customs department based on the value and characteristics of whatever is being imported. Every country has their own unique regulations and procedures.
Brokerage Fees: These are charged by a company to facilitate transactions between buyers and sellers. The brokerage fee is charged for services such as negotiations, sales, purchases, delivery, or advice on the transaction. In the case of importing shipments, brokerage companies often serve as the means by which the shipment is cleared through a country's customs and border protection department. These services often can incur a fee. Depending on a country's customs clearance procedures, a brokerage company will take care of the paperwork and deal with the hassle of importing a package.
In some countries, you can avoid these brokerage fees by clearing the package yourself at a customs facility. Check your country's customs laws and see if it's possible. You can also contact the shipping carrier and ask if you can clear the package yourself. Be sure to have your tracking number for them to reference.
Ancillary Fees: That's basically a big word for extra fees applied by the shipping carrier. These fees can include things like storage fees, expedited clearance fees and fees for having to correct customs documentation. Your customs bill should have a breakdown of what the fees are if they are applied. Most shipments don't incur hefty ancillary fees, but you should check with how certain shipping carriers deal with ancillary fees.
FedEx has a breakdown of the different country-specific ancillary fees that can be applied: FedEx Ancillary Fees
Shipping Issues ¶
Incorrect Shipping Address Provided ¶
If you chose UPS Next Day Air, UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS Ground, or FedEx International Priority as your preferred shipping method, we are happy to correct minor errors in your address (i.e. including a missing apartment number or changing a couple of digits in a postal code). Major address changes like shipping to a completely different street address, city, state, or country may be possible but are subject to an additional processing fee.
Please contact iFixit Support if you need to make changes to an address.
Not correctable ¶
We are not able to modify addresses for orders shipped with USPS First Class, USPS Priority, or USPS Priority Express International.
Please see the below sections for information on how we deal with packages that are not able to be delivered.
Undeliverable Packages ¶
Occasionally packages are returned to us as undeliverable. When the carrier returns an undeliverable package to us, you will be issued a full refund for the product, and a coupon for the shipping charges.
If you suspect your order cannot be delivered as addressed and you have not received confirmation of its return or refund, please contact iFixit Support.
Returned undeliverable packages are subject to our standard 3-5 business day processing time, so if you would like to expedite redelivery, you may place a new order. Contact us and we'll issue a refund for the shipping cost instead of issuing a coupon.
Rejecting Receipt ¶
Rejecting receipt of a package is considered returning the package without iFixit's consent and may be subject to a 25% restocking fee ($5 minimum). Any fees and shipping charges incurred will be re-billed to the customer and may be deducted from any applicable refund amount.
Unless arrangements are made before arrival, orders that are returned to us will be restocked and are not able to be shipped again. If you would still like the returned items, you will need to place a new order.
Missing Packages ¶
Occasionally, packages are not delivered in the expected timeframe and are not able to be located by tracking information (if available). Once this happens, the package is considered "missing."
If a package falls into this category, iFixit reserves the right to send a replacement. Refunds or returns are only available for orders that have been successfully received. We are unable to provide refunds or replacements for missing packages where an incorrect shipping address was provided to us.
Shipping Damage ¶
Occasionally, packages are damaged during shipping, rendering the item(s) unusable or non-functional.
Similar to a missing package, iFixit reserves the right to send a replacement. Refunds are only available for orders that have been received undamaged. We are not able to provide a refund for parts damaged in shipping.
If you suspect that your package has been damaged in shipping, please file a claim by emailing support@iFixit.com with photos of the damage, all received items, all interior packing materials, and the packaging that the item arrived in. Be sure to include your order number in the email.
We want you to be happy about your purchase from iFixit! Please contact our support department for an RMA number before sending anything back to us.
- Arrangements for a return must be made within 30 days of the date the order is received.
- Returned items that are not defective may be charged a restocking fee of up to 15% ($5 minimum), and shipping will not be refunded. Alternatively, we can provide 90% of the purchase price in store credit for your returned item. ($5 minimum restocking fee still applies.) Unless explicitly stated by iFixit, any coupon codes provided for customer use are discounts for products, not shipping.
- RMA numbers are valid for 30 days from the date of issue. All packages received without an RMA number will be charged a 25% restocking fee ($5 minimum). Rejecting receipt of a package is considered returning the package without an RMA number and may be charged up to a 25% restocking fee.
- Original and return shipping charges for any non-defective returns are the sole responsibility of the customer. If we are at fault, iFixit will provide a return shipping label and/or (with iFixit's prior consent) reimburse return shipping charges for non-expedited, trackable shipping methods. Any shipping and/or customs charges billed to an iFixit shipping account and not explicitly authorized by iFixit will be billed to the customer.
- If a return does not come back in the condition it was sent out in (i.e. a torn cable, scratches, used adhesive, etc.) a refund may be denied (or additional charges may apply), and the item can be sent back out to you at your expense. If your part doesn't qualify for a refund, we will reach out to you, and if there is no response within 7 days, the part will be properly recycled. This 7 days also applies to items returned to us that include original pre-installed components transferred over to them.
- Removing the iFixit tamperproof sticker does not void the warranty per se, but it may delay return processing and in some cases it may result in return processors not being able to verify the part as an iFixit part. However, returns for a refund of parts that have been unpackaged and do not bear the iFixit tamperproof sticker may be denied or issued store credit in lieu of a refund to the original form of payment.
If in doubt, please contact us and we'll do our best to get you taken care of.
