Shipping Policy


Unlike many other sites that have special rules and lots of fine print, Diabetic Outlet offers free shipping on all domestic orders placed on our website, with no minimum order sizes or special exceptions.

All orders will be shipped FREE via United States Postal First-Class or Parcel Service (expected delivery of 3 – 5 BUSINESS days). Orders to California deliver “1-2 days”. Most orders across the states deliver “on average in just 3 business days”.

Expedited Shipping: Priority Mail (2-3 business days) and Priority Mail Express (1-2 business days) as well as UPS Ground, 2nd-Day, and Next Day options are also available at cart & checkout for faster delivery.

Free shipping doesn’t mean it should take a long time to receive an order. We understand that getting your supplies quickly is important to you, so we make every best efforts to process your order quickly. Most orders will deliver on average in 3 BUSINESS days. That excludes Saturdays, Sundays, and any official holidays.

Orders placed by 3 PM Pacific Time will ship on the same day. Orders placed after 3 PM PST will be shipped on the following business day. Orders placed during the weekend will ship on the following business day.
