01. How long does it take for us to process an order?

We endeavor to ship out orders as soon as possible but it can take up to 3 business days to process your order. If there is an inventory issue we will endeavor to notify you within a working day.  We do not ship on weekends. Fulfillment for pre-orders depends on what was posted.

02. Restocking Fees

Alpha One Niner has seen a drastic increase in “Serial Returners”. Instead of completely banning those customers as some retailers have done, we will now implement a restocking fee for certain returns to offset the cost.

All accounts are given three (3) returns without being charged a restocking fee (you are still responsible for the return shipping). Returns due to a defective product or our processing error do not count towards the return count.

Once three (3) returns have been used, Alpha One Niner will charge a 15% restocking fee for each item being returned. 15% of the cost of each item, for eg, if a bag is $100, the fee will be $15.

03. What shipping options do you provide?

Our products are warehoused and shipped from several locations depending on the product.  Domestic shipping offered is Standard (approximately 2-5 days).  International shipments options or Standard or Expedited.  

***Please note that USPS Priority Mail shipments are NOT guaranteed 2-3 days deliveries. Additionally there has been many times when their tracking page does not show the necessary updates until the package has been delivered. Please understand that once a package leaves our facility, the responsibility is then in the hands of the carrier - we have no control of package information.

Here's a separate page on our SHIPPING POLICY, please read.
