Shipping & Return Policies


We offer several shipping methods for both domestic and international customers. Domestic customers have the option to ship orders via ground, two-day delivery and standard overnight delivery. International customers have the option to ship orders via international economy and international priority.

Value Flat-Rate Shipping

Value Flat-Rate Shipping is a flat $7.50 for all Channel Master items but is limited to the continental United States unless otherwise stated on the checkout page. Value Flat-Rate Shipping within the continental United States is by ground. The carrier is subject to Channel Master's choice, and may change at any time. The shipping method on the checkout page for orders that qualify for Value Flat-Rate shipping will default to Channel Master's approved carrier for Value Flat-Rate Shipping. The customer may choose to change this option and decline Value Flat-Rate Shipping if they wish.

Most Orders Ship Same Day

Most online orders received by 12:00 PM mountain time ship the same day. Orders on Fridays after 12:00 PM and orders on weekends will not ship until the Monday of the following week. We do not ship packages on holidays, including Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Christmas Eve/Day, and New Years Eve/Day.


Most items listed in the shopping cart will have the option of choosing a UPS shipping method, but some items will include a USPS shipping option. These items are eligible for slightly reduced shipping rates. When the USPS shipping method is selected, you can expect to receive your shipment 1-3 additional business days than a UPS ground shipment.

Determining Shipping and Handling Costs

Determining the shipping & handling costs for any item listed is easy, just simply add the item(s) to your shopping cart. You can view the shipping charges for the available shipping methods at anytime during your shopping experience by viewing your cart. Shipping rates calculated are based on the total weight of the items on your order. There are no requirements to buy.

P.O. Boxes as Shipping Address

Currently, we do not ship to P.O. Box addresses. Using a P.O. Box address as the shipping address during order checkout will delay your order as we seek to obtain an alternate shipping address for the order

Address Change Charges

There will be a $15.00 address change after a shipment is underway. If the shipping address error occurred at time of order placement by the customer during order checkout online, the customer may be subject to a $15.00 address correction charge posted to the credit card used on the particular order.
