Shipping Information


The University of Hawai'i Bookstores utilizes United Parcel Service (UPS) for sending orders to its customers within the United States. For international orders, we will utilize the cheapest method available. Rates and delivery times depend on the method chosen for shipping.

  • We process orders during our regular business days.
  • We make every effort to ship your order within two days after payment is received. If for any reason we are unable to ship your order within the two days we will notify you as soon as possible.
  • All addresses within the United States are considered domestic destinations.
  • All addresses outside of the United States are considered international destinations and will be subject to International shipping rates and timetables.
  • Please provide a street address for your order to be delivered to as UPS cannot deliver to a PO Box or military APO address. If for any reason, UPS is unable to ship to the address indicated, your order will be shipped via the US Postal Service at the UPS rates.
  • An adult signature may be required at the given shipping address upon delivery of all shipments made through UPS.
  • If you would like to arrange to have the shipment left at an alternate address other than the address indicated please contact UPS to make arrangements. UPS fees due to address changes after shipping will be assessed to customer.

Most of our shipping rates are determined by the number of items shipped to you, except in cases where the item is lighter or heavier than 1 lb. (actual or dimensional weight). Tshirts and sweatshirts are generally considered $1 additional regardless of actual weight. Any other items are subject to weight adjustment.
