How shipping cost is determined
Bolt Depot charges standard UPS shipping rates. Ground shipping within the 48 contiguous US states is never more than $100. Our system calculates the weight of your order and uses your zip code to get a shipping cost directly from UPS. UPS charges in 1lb increments with a minimum of 1lb.
Some small orders qualify for economy shipping. If your order qualifies the economy rate will be displayed when you calculate shipping, and in the checkout.
