  4. Why am I receiving shopping cart reminder emails after placing an order?

    If you're logged into your store account and added an item to the shopping cart or you're a guest who's added an item to the shopping cart and entered your email and shipping address, you will receive an abandoned shopping cart reminder email (we send a maximum of three reminder emails). This friendly reminder email will contain a link to your shopping cart with the items you added before leaving the checkout page. If you click on this link and successfully complete the checkout process, you will stop receiving shopping cart reminder emails. However, if you return to our site without clicking the link from the reminder email to complete the checkout process you may receive future shopping cart reminder emails.

    You can always unsubscribe from these emails by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of the email.

  5. How much does shipping cost?

    All UPS & USPS shipping costs are determined by the weight and destination zip code of the order. We use a combination of "real-time" and flat rate prices for the most accurate and economical shipping cost as possible.

    You can calculate your shipping charges before you check out using the shipping calculator located in your shopping cart. During the order process you will be able to review your shipping charges before you finalize your order.

    Please visit our Shipping Information Page for detailed shipping information and estimated transit times.

  7. Do you ship to Military APO or FPO addresses?

  8. Military APO/FPO Shipping Notes

    USPS Priority mail is the only method we use to ship to an APO or FPO address. And, although we are happy to ship to our men and women overseas, the US Postal Service will NOT provide delivery confirmation for such packages. It is at the risk of the customer to have a package sent to an APO address. Once it leaves our warehouse, we have no way of proving delivery, nor tracking the package.

    On rare occassions our experience has shown that it could take 4-12 weeks for a package to reach its APO destination. Safety Glasses USA cannot be responsible if the service member or end user has been relocated and the package becomes undeliverable. If a package is returned to us as undeliverable, we will attempt to contact the customer for an updated shipping address. If we receive no response after 3 business days, we will process a return and credit the original source of payment.

    If you are unsure of these terms, may we suggest you have the package sent to a domestic address first for you to have forwarded to the APO or FPO location.

    Please see our Shipping Information Page for additional details.

  9. Do you accept international orders?

    Yes, we do accept international orders. Please see our International Sales Policy for additional details. Please note that if your country is not listed, we cannot accept credit card payment from, nor ship to your country at this time.

  10. How do I set up a Business or Net-30 account for my company?

    Please fill out our online account application powered by Apruve. Depending on your business type, various information on your business will need to be collected, including, but not limited to:

    • Name and email of applicant

  11. Why do I need to supply my phone number and email address when placing an order?

    Providing both gives us two methods by which we can attempt to contact you should any problems arise with your order (e.g. backordered product, credit card did not process correctly, etc.). Additionally, you will receive automatic email notifications about your order: the initial order confirmation with order number as well as a notice when your order ships. Lastly, you may receive e-newsletters or notice of specials/sales via email. We do NOT give your private information to anyone. You may also request to not be emailed at any time.

  12. Why can I only add one item at a time to the shopping cart or why do items keep disappearing from the shopping cart?

    This problem is likely due to your internet browser having ACCEPT COOKIES turned off or disabled. This can be caused by having your security settings on high or certain firewall programs will automatically disable "cookies" when they are installed. Please change your browser settings to accept cookies and the shopping cart should work as expected.

  13. Can I use a Visa gift card or bank issued gift card for online purchases?

    Yes. However, we strongly suggest that you register your Visa or other bank issued gift card first. This will ensure your name and billing address matches the gift card when you place your online order. This will help prevent order processing delays or cancellation.

    You can register your gift card by calling the phone number on the back of the card or visiting their website.

    No, we do not print catalogs of our products. We tried catalogs many years ago, but found that, as often as we add to or change our selection, they became outdated soon after they're printed.

  6. How can I improve compliance among my employees?

    Although your workplace is not a fashion show, your employees still want something that looks reasonably appealing on them, and is also comfortable. Keep in mind that your employees have faces of different sizes and shapes, especially a crew that includes both men and women. Safety glasses, ear plugs, and work gloves are NOT "one size fits all" items. It may cost a little more to first acquire a better pair, or a better fitting pair, but when your employees like what they're wearing, morale increases, compliance increases (even outside the workplace where half of injuries occur), and because they take better care of them, replacement costs decrease. Most importantly, injuries decrease. In the long run, that saves your company much more money than it costs for the better equipment.
