Shipping Help

OCTOBER 15, 2020, UPDATED SHIPPING NOTICE: We are estimating an additional 3-4 business days for order processing.

We try to make shipping your order simple, but we know it can be confusing sometimes. Take a look at the information below. Hopefully it’ll help. If it doesn’t, please give us a call at 1-800-206-6949. We’ll be happy to answer whatever questions you may have.


Shipping Updates

We are taking extra precautions to ensure our employees, their families, and our customers stay safe. With staffing adjustments and revised safety practices implemented to comply with the MDHHS orders, we are estimating an additional 3-4 business days for Flat Rate ground shipping from the time of placement. Expedited orders (2-day and overnight) receive first priority.

Once the orders are picked up by FedEx you will receive a shipping confirmation from them with the expected delivery date.

Some suppliers and parcel carriers are experiencing delays but we're working with them closely to responsibly manage the evolving situation.

While these changes have caused some shipping delays, rest assured that we are working hard to get your Ruby Red Morsels of Joy shipped out to you as quickly as possible!

Warm Weather Shipping

To ensure your order arrives safely and unmelted during the hot summer months, all orders containing chocolate and frozen items require 2-Day Shipping. And we will include cold packs at no extra cost!

Shipping Methods Overview

Orders are processed and shipped Monday through Friday (orders that include a cold pack ship Monday thru Wednesday.) We promise we’ll try really hard not to eat them.

We’re told we have to say that we can’t guarantee delivery times. Apparently, things like bad weather can delay shipments. We also blame things like hitting every red light, our poor sense of direction, and people who drive too slowly in the left lane.

Special Requests

If you would like to place an order with a hold date please call us immediately after placing the order. We'll be happy to assist you!

Standard Flat Rate Shipping

Our most popular method of shipping, our Standard Flat Rate shipping let's you ship as much as you like to a single address for just $9.95. In fact, maybe we should call it our Gold Standard Flat Rate shipping?

There are just a couple of small points to bear in mind. First, to get our Standard Flat Rate shipping, you have to ship to a physical address within the continental U.S. (with our apologies to those folks who live in Alaska, Hawaii or with PO Boxes.)

Second, while orders typically take 1-5 days, there have been rare occasions when they take a day or two longer. If the order is in any way time-sensitive, we'd suggest upgrading to 2-Day Guaranteed Shipping.

Alaska and Hawaii

Alas, the fine people of Alaska and Hawaii have a harder time than most when it comes to getting their hands on our cherry treats. The only shipping option we offer for these destinations is Priority Mail. Shipments will typically take about 3 days to get there.

It also costs a little more to ship to Alaska and Hawaii, so we generally have to exclude those destinations from any discounted shipping promotions we may be offering. We're really sorry about that. But perhaps that inconvenience is a small price to pay for living somewhere so amazingly beautiful.

International Shipping

Want to send some Chocolate Covered Cherries to China? Or some salsa to Scotland? We can get your cherries delivered pretty much anywhere on Spaceship Earth.

Priority Mail Express

Our fastest international delivery option will get your cherries to their destination in approximately 3-5 business days. It’s not teleportation, but it beats a carrier pigeon.

Priority Mail

In approximately 6-10 business days we can have your goodies delivered to any one of over 180 countries via Priority Mail International. Basically, we’ll ship our cherries anywhere it won’t cause a diplomatic incident… although causing one could be really entertaining.

For further assistance with International Shipping, please feel free to contact us.

Military Shipping

The men and women of our nation’s Armed Forces deserve all the recognition they get and then some. Whether they’re actively deployed in some far-flung corner of the world or providing valuable service domestically, we hold them in the highest esteem.

As a small token of our appreciation, Cherry Republic provides shipping to all Army, Air Force, and Fleet Post Offices free of charge, all the time. We hope this small gesture increases the amount of homegrown cherry goodness being sent to the finest people we can imagine.

Please note: delivery times are considerably longer when shipping to military addresses. Shipments can take several weeks.

To send to an APO or FPO address, enter either APO or FPO as the city, select the appropriate Armed Forces “state” (Armed Forces Europe, Armed Forces Pacific, etc.) and select the United States as the country. For military recipients who do not have an APO or FPO address please contact us.
