Can I order by regular mail?
The easiest way is to utilize our shopping basket system, and go through the 'Checkout' process. But yes, you can order by mail!
Do you keep all of my personal information private?
Yes. We consider the information you choose to share with us confidential. We will not share, rent or sell any of your personal information.
How long will it take to receive my order?
When you place an order, your credit-card transaction is processed in real-time, and your order is completely processed within one business day. All orders are shipped within three days of when we receive them, more often than not, they go out the morning after you place your order. We must admit that we sometimes go away for a weekend or a few times a year, for a week. So the day we receive them isn't always the same day you order....but it is nearly all of the time. The amount of time it takes for your order to arrive once it has been shipped depends on shipping. We normally send items out "Priority Mail" which means that it should take 3 to 5 days to arrive. For overseas orders, we often ship "Global Priority" which is just a few days longer that "Priority mail".
What about sales tax and shipping charges?
Internet sales are not subject to sales tax (yet). So you can enjoy shopping without the annoying sales tax add-ons!
We can ship to virtually any address in the world. We use the United States Postal Service to ship items. For United States and Canadian orders, the postage is $6.50. International orders postage is still $6.50. There are exceptions to this such as heavy lights, multiple lights, or other very heavy items.
What is your return policy?
Black Lights USA offers a Money Back Guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, return your purchase to us and we will refund your money immediately. Is this any way to run a business? We think so, and its worked well for us for over 11 years. We do ask that you return the white box that the light was sent in.
Can I contact you?
