Shipping rates for your order can be found in the shopping cart.

Backorder Shipping

Same-Day Shipment

Mouser ships most UPS, FedEx, and DHL orders same day. Global Priority Mail and other US Postal Service orders ship on the next business day. The following exceptions cause orders to be reviewed before processing. Most exceptions are cleared immediately but some may cause an order to ship one day later.

  • If you provide any special instructions on your order
  • New customer orders that require security or address verification
  • Credit card security concerns
  • An open account customer with a credit concern
  • Import restrictions in some countries
  • Orders exporting from the US due to export regulations

Insurance Charges on Shipping

If the value of your order is $200 or more, we add a fee of $0.90 to insure the shipment. For every subsequent $100 of value above this, we add a further $0.90. For example, if the value of your order is between $300 and $399, the insurance fee will be $1.80. If you have your own insurance and therefore do not need us to insure the shipment, you can complete a waiver and Mouser will no longer make the charge. Please contact our Customer Service team to obtain the waiver. Remember that signing the waiver means that Mouser will not credit you for any loss or damage during shipment.
