Shipping & Returns | Sassy Shortcake


Standard Shipping (generally 6 - 8 business days not including processing time) within the United States is $5.95 for all orders under $100. Orders over $100 receive free standard shipping. Standard shipping orders currently take around 3-5 business days to be processed and packaged before they are shipped out depending on current order volume. 

Expedited shipping (2-3 business days transit time) is offered for $19.95. We process these within 1-2 business days to get them out to you. 

Overnight shipping is offered for $39.95. Orders must be placed before 12pm to go out same day. All orders received after 12pm EST will be shipped the next business day. Business days are M-F for this service. 

International Shipping is offered at checkout. We ship worldwide and have a set rate listed. That rate is for UPS Expedited International Service which typically gets door to door in 5-7 days sometimes sooner. We do offer a slower more cost effective option for some countries and if you are interested please email us your address so we can provide a quote. All duties and taxes for the country the order is entering are the responsibility of the buyer.

  • Delays with shipping
  • International Duties or Customs charges

**Shipping Carrier Update**

Please note that our shipping carriers are experiencing delays due to the holiday season. These delays may impact ground and expedited shipping. Due to these delays, your package may move but not scan at every location in transit to you. Rest assured, if you have received tracking information, your package has left our shop.

For pre-orders, please reference the estimated shipping date on the product page as to when your item will ship.
