Any orders placed after 11:00 am PST depart no sooner than the next business day, but other factors that may affect processing time is the day you order, as are closed on weekends, and national holidays. The final factor that may case delay is if you ordered during a special sale offer.

- Free shipping is valid only for items we have in stock and for total net orders. For this reason, there is no free shipping on back orders.
Most customers doing Ironman races, national championships, or a very important race end up spending thousands dollars training, traveling, dining, paying the expensive entry fees, and buying new equipment. For such an important race they want to be certain they get their product in time, so they typically choose for some form of premium expedited shipping.
For orders where a premium shipping is paid by you, we will usually process your order within 24 hours (excluding Saturdays and Sundays) from the day we receive it, and we will ship your order the same day if we get the order before 11:00 am Pacific Time and you select a paid expedited shipping method. However, during extremely busy periods, such as holidays, summer, and periods approaching major races around the world, it may take a number of days before it is processed. We are a small company, we produce almost everything under one roof, and we do all our own fulfillment.

California’s Hybrid-Origin Sales Tax Collection for orders shipped in California
When we sell our product to customers in California, we are required to collect at least two sales tax rates in California; one for customers in the “district” where De Soto Sport is located and one for customers outside the district where De Soto Sport is located.
Not many of us realize that the sales tax rate is the sum of two rates: the California state sales tax rate and a district sales tax rate. “Districts” are cities, counties and towns. The rates for these local jurisdictions range from 0.10% to 1.00% per district
More than one district tax may be in effect in a given location. California has four sales tax districts. Since we ship from only one location in California, like De Soto Sport, then are required to charge two sales tax rates. We charge our district rate to buyers located in our district, San Diego, and the California state rate to buyers outside our district, and the local tax to where the parcel is shipping.
A full list of rates for all cities in California are available here:
If your parcel is rejected or considered undeliverable for any reason beyond our control, we will either re-ship it to you, or refund the purchase price upon receipt to our offices, whichever you prefer. However, you are responsible for shipping charges and any other fees incurred by your local country.
