Use the following links below for answers to the most common questions customers have when ordering.
What are my shipping options?
Standard: 2-10 Business Days (UPS Ground)
At present, ChristmasLightsEtc.com can only ship products within the 50 states. ChristmasLightsEtc.com cannot fill or ship international orders.
How are my shipping costs calculated?
We estimate all of our shipping charges by weight, delivery / ship to locations and shipping methods. Actual shipping charges may apply.
Can I have an order delivered on a weekend?
ChristmasLightsEtc.com does not currently provide for Saturday or Sunday deliveries.
When will my order be shipped?
Most orders are shipped in 1 to 3 business days.
What do I do if my order is late?
If the expected delivery time listed with your choice of shipping has expired, and tracking information does not help, please contact us immediately. Your order may be late because no one was available to accept delivery. If you are not present when a delivery is attempted, the carrier will make a second attempt, and often a third. If delivery is still not made, the shipment will be returned to our warehouse. You must report to us any undelivered order within 25 days of the date you placed the order.
What if my package is damaged when it is delivered?
If your package arrives damaged, you may refuse delivery at no cost to you. Please contact us immediately so that we can correct the situation as soon as possible.
Is online ordering safe & private?
Is online ordering really safe? What about those stories I've heard where credit card information was stolen?
Those stories began with a Web site that didn't have adequate security. Ours does. Yes. In conjunction with Verisign (www.verisign.com), ChristmasLightsEtc.com uses 128-bit encryption to protect information entered -- some of the most powerful encryption available today.
Basically, encryption encodes your information. To steal your information from the Internet, someone must first find your encrypted information packet (which is flying across the Internet at light speed) - then crack the code. Nobody has ever claimed that this has been done. Indeed, if it were possible, the most sensitive information in the world would be available to them - not just your credit card number.
Look at it this way: you probably already transmit your credit card number electronically every day. When you swipe your credit card at the local store, your card information is encrypted and transmitted over a phone network. Using your card on a secure online Web site is very similar - your information is encrypted and then transmitted over a high-speed network line.
How private is my personal information?
We use any information you provide to us only to serve you better. We do not trade or sell your personal information to anyone.
How do I find a product?
You can find products quickly by browsing through our product category links. You can also search for any product you'd like more information about. Just type in the name of the product in the "Search" window located on the top left navigation panel and select the category you wish to search
What if I can't find what I am looking for?
If you don't see a product you're looking for, let us know (if by email, CustomerService@ChristmasLightsEtc.com). We may have it under a different industry name, and if not, we will do our best to track it down for you. If there is a service you'd like to see on our Web site, we'd like to hear about that, too. The more we know, the more we can do for you.

Can I change an order that has already been submitted?
Due to the speed at which orders are processed, it is very unlikely that we will be able to change any aspect of your order once it has been electronically transmitted to the warehouse. We can only ensure a cancellation or change if the item/s are on backorder.
To cancel a backorder, please contact us.
When will my credit card be charged for an order?
The full charge will be processed when your order has shipped.
