Shipping Information

Shipping Charges

Shipping & Processing charges depend on the accumulative dollar value of the shippable resources in your original order, not the weight. We do NOT charge extra for your back-ordered materials.

Shipping & Processing charges are listed in the chart below. They are subject to future changes and sales taxes. Multiple orders for Ongoing Resources placed by the Due Date may merge into one order as do multiple orders placed on the same day.

LifeWay adheres to the UPS Service Guarantee. Please see below for exceptions due to weather or other unexpected impediments.*

International Guidelines

International shipment costs are higher, are determined by the International carrier used and weight of the shipment. International customers are responsible for any taxes, duties or brokerage fees on customer orders. LifeWay is not responsible for any delivery delays caused by Customs. Your order placed with LifeWay is an indication that you are aware and responsible for customs duties, taxes and brokerage fees for all packages shipped to your country.
A $5 international shipping fee will be added to shipping costs.


*The UPS Service Guarantee does not apply to shipments that are delayed due to causes beyond UPS’s control including, but not limited to: the unavailability or refusal of a person to accept delivery of the shipment, acts of God, natural disasters, war risks, acts of terrorism, acts of public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority, acts or omissions of customs or similar authorities, authority of law, insufficient information provided by a customer, Hazardous Materials packages improperly offered for transport, the application of security regulations imposed by the government, or otherwise applicable to the shipment, riots, strikes or other labor disputes, civil unrest, disruptions in national or local air or ground transportation networks (including, but not limited to, UPS’s transportation network), disruption or failure of communication and information systems, and adverse weather conditions.
