Get Your Gifts in Time for the Holidays


Making holiday purchases has become more convenient, thanks to online shopping. You no longer must endure packed parking lots and crowded malls. Instead, you can simply click Check Out and have the items shipped directly to your doorstep. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect regarding deliveries from B&H during this holiday season.

Q: I live in the US. When is the last date I can order to ensure I get it before Christmas?

A: If you live in the 48 contiguous states (sorry, Alaska and Hawaii), you have until 12/21 to place your order. Please note that shipping dates are estimated, so it’s always recommended that you check the ETA of your order at checkout. Please also consider that unforeseen delays may happen, such as verification protocols, bad weather, and more.

Q: I live in the New York City area, what other options do I have?

A: If you live in or near New York City, you can opt for the Store Pickup option. While it does require you to leave your home, your order can be ready for pickup in as little as 30 minutes (plus, you get to browse the B&H SuperStore). Make sure you order before 5:00 p.m. (from Monday to Thursday); otherwise, your order will not be ready until the following business day.

Q: I live outside of the United States, what are my options?

A: International shipping will vary, depending on several factors, such as shipping options, customs, and more. It is recommended that you order sooner than later. If you want more detailed information about shipping, please contact B&H Customer Service.

Q: What about Drop Ship, Accepting, Special, and Truck orders?

A: Drop Ship, Accepting, Special, and Truck orders will take longer. Drop Ship is when the manufacturer ships the product directly to you. Accepting and Special orders will give you a choice of shipping when all your items are in stock or in split shipments. Truck orders are for oversized or heavy items.

Q: I ordered on Friday, but it didn’t ship yet?

A: Please note that orders placed after 11:00 a.m. on Fridays will not be shipped until the next business day, which is Monday.
