Forms of Payment:

We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, PayPal, and wire transfers. We also accept purchase orders from government agencies, educational institutions, and corporations. All purchase orders are subject to credit approval. Please contact our sales department at +1 855 814-4506 for all your purchase order inquiries.

Important Note for Debit Card Holders: Please note that at the time of an order we authorize the charge only and settle the transaction on the date of the actual shipment of the product(s). However, most issuing banks for debit cards put the entire amount on hold at the time that the card is authorized and the funds may not be available for other purchases. For further information and specific policies please contact your bank.

Order Verification / Fraud Prevention:

All orders placed through our company are subject to our verification process for order accuracy and authorized valid payment. For security reasons, we may contact you via email or phone to request additional information.

In order to guard against fraudulent activity, Optics Brands must verify the bill to and ship to address. Please be sure to provide your exact billing address and phone number (the address and phone number your credit card bank has on file). Incorrect information will cause a delay in the processing time.

If your shipping address is different than you're billing address (where you receive your credit card statement), please call your credit card bank to make them aware of the shipping address. Informing your credit card bank about your the shipping address will not change any existing billing information; it will be temporarily listed in the banks memo field for purchase verification only. Please recognize that calling your credit card bank about an address notification may not only be necessary, but it will also speed up the verification process.

If your selected payment method is PayPal, we will ship your order to a PayPal confirmed address only. A PayPal confirmed address is an address that has been reviewed by PayPal and found to be safe based on information related to the address.

We are currently unable to process any credit cards that are billed to an address outside of the United States.

Order Confirmation:

Online Orders: A confirmation displaying an order number will appear on the checkout page immediately after your order is submitted. If an order confirmation did not appear after the final submit button, we may have received your order, but communication from our server to your computer was interrupted. Please contact customer service to verify if your order had been received.

Phone Orders: You will also receive an order confirmation via email after completing your order online or by phone. An email address is preferred so that we may keep you informed on the status of your order. Please recognize that your internet or email client may have a filter that is preventing the email confirmation from getting through to you. Please check your Junk Mail folder and/or turn off your Spam Filter to allow e-mail from sales@opticsbrands.com.

* We will never share your email address with unrelated 3rd party except as necessary to fulfill transactions that you initiate.

Order Processing Time:

We strive to dispatch all orders within 24 to 48 business hours, in the unlikely event that the item is not available for an immediate shipment we will notify you within 2 business days with an option to wait for a backorder or to cancel the transaction.. The estimated time of arrival of your order to your destination is determined by the chosen method of shipping and the carrier's local delivery guidelines.

Order Change / Cancellation:

You may request an order change or cancellation by phone as long as it has not been processed for shipping. Since majority of orders are usually processed the same or next business day, notifying us of an order change or cancellation via email is not recommended, as we may not get to your request in time. Please contact our Customer Support line at 1-877-314-4166 to request a change or cancellation.
If your order was shipped before you requested a cancellation or before any changes could be made, you can refuse delivery and we will refund you for the purchase less our shipping and processing cost.
We are unable to reinstate an order once it has been cancelled. You may place a new order subject to our current availability and pricing.

Rebates:

Optics Brands wants to ensure that you get the best possible prices anywhere. We will make every effort to notify you about any additional savings that may be available through manufacturer rebates (usually listed on product page of relevant product). Please recognize that manufacturer rebates are under the control of the manufacturer and not Optics Brands

Please visit our rebates section to view current manufacturer rebates.

Backorders:

If an item in your order is not in stock, we will not hold the rest of your order until the item is available*. We will ship the available items and backorder the item that is not in stock, provided that the available item on your order is not an accessory to the backordered item or total purchase price does not exceed $50.

In most circumstances, we will ship the backorder shortly after it was ordered, unless you are notified otherwise. You may always cancel a backorder for a full credit by contacting our Customer Service department.

We do not bill your credit card for an item that is not in stock. Occasionally, an item is found to be out of stock after the order has been processed due to an inventory discrepancy. We will credit your account for the value of that item if it is not expected shortly. If the backordered item becomes unavailable to us we will notify you via email and issue a full credit if your card has already been charged.

* Does not apply to orders being shipped outside the U.S., or orders being shipped via USPS.

If your bank does hold you liable, Optics Brands will cover the liability for you, up to the full $50.00. Optics Brands will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at Optics Brands while using our secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, please notify your credit card provider immediately in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
