For security, our system has to check the billing address for a match to the card used for the purchase. Pre-paid VISA/debit cards do not have an address that is "attached" to the account, so our system cannot verify an address and will not accept the card.Q: Why won't my order go through?
There are a few different reasons that a credit card may be declined (sometimes our system can tell us what exactly it was, and sometimes it just tells us it was declined). Some of the reasons for a declined card include insufficient funds, wrong expiration date entered, wrong security code entered, or the wrong billing address was provided.Q: Do you accept checks?
We do not accept checks, but we do accept money orders. Please call us with your preferred selection of sunglasses so we may give you the full total as well as place them on hold for you.Q: Can I scan a photo of myself and "try on" the glasses virtually?
Unfortunately, we do not currently have a photo upload feature like this on our website. However, we do have an interactive face shape tool available, where you can try on frames recommended specifically for your face shape. Click here to try out the tool.Q: Do you have any pictures of the products on actual people?
We do not have pictures of actual people in the sunglasses, but many of our products have an example photo on a mannequin head, which helps with perspective. On select product pages, you will see pictures of style bloggers who have sent us photos wearing our shades.Q: The style I want is out of stock. Is it gone forever, or will it be restocked? When?
We try to restock inventory as often as possible, but sometimes, a product is discontinued by a manufacturer, and it is completely out of our hands. Please contact customer service to inquire about a specific style.Q: I need a different size of a particular style. Can you customize it for me?
Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we are unable to customize the frames in any way.Q: How do I know what power/strength/magnification I need for the reading sunglasses?
We recommend consulting your eye doctor to see what power is right for you.Q: Do you do any price-matching?
We do not do price-matching, because it would be impossible to determine that a style listed elsewhere is the exact style we carry. Many styles look identical but can be made by a different manufacturer, making it a different price.Q: I see a picture of a different color in a certain style below the big picture, but I can only select one color. Can I order the other color?
The available colors are listed in the drop-down menu. If a certain color does not show up in the drop-down menu, it is out of stock and unavailable for order.Q: Why will it not allow me to order the amount of this style I want? It keeps adding a lower quantity than I enter to the cart.
The system will only allow the amount we have in
stock to be added to the cart. If you want to order three of a style, but we
only have one pair in stock, only one will be added to your cart. This way, you
do not pay for what we are unable to ship to you.
You are more than welcome to pay via PayPal or Google Checkout. Please select one of those options in the cart page or at the bottom of the checkout page.Q: Do you allow CODs (Collect on Delivery)?
We do not accept COD as a form of payment; we must receive payment before the order is shipped.Q: Where do I enter this gift certificate code I have?
You may enter the gift certificate code at the bottom of the checkout page, under "Step 5: Payment Method." Select the "Gift Certificate" option, and enter your code in the available field. The gift certificate codes will not work in promotional code boxes.Q: Where do I enter this promotional code I have?
You may enter the promotional code in the middle of the cart page. Check the box next to "Yes, I have a promotional code." Then, enter your code and click "Apply."Q: I didn't get the promotional code applied to my order. Can you apply it?
Yes, we can. Please contact customer service at 1-800-559-4209 with your order number so we may apply the discount for you.
Shipping & Delivery
Q: How much does shipping cost?
Standard USPS First Class Mail is $2.95 for orders shipping within the United States. USPS Priority Mail is $4.95, and UPS and expedited methods vary on your location and size of order. Shipping costs can be calculated by adding the items to be ordered to your card, proceeding to the checkout page, and entering in the shipping address. For complete information on shipping, please click here.Q: If I order before 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, will I get my glasses today?
Same-day shipping means the order will leave our warehouse if you order before 2:00 p.m. ET on a business day; however, it does not mean same-day delivery. Delivery estimates do not begin until the day after your order ships from our warehouse.Q: How long does it take for the order to ship?
If you order before 2:00 p.m. ET on a business day, the order will ship that day; otherwise, it will ship the next business day. If you place an order on a weekend or holiday, your order will ship the following business day.Q: My confirmation number says the package was delivered, but I don't have it. Now what?
First, check with anyone in the house/apartment that may have received the package. If it is an apartment complex, check with the front desk. Then, check with neighbors to see if the package was misdelivered. You can also contact your local post office and speak with your mail carrier or delivery manager about where the package was left.;Q: I got my shipping confirmation email, but the tracking number doesn't work. Was the order even sent?
Tracking information is not available right away. It often takes a business day for USPS to update the tracking. Please check the tracking number again tomorrow.Q: Why does the tracking information state there is no record of the item?
Tracking information is not available right away. It often takes a business day for USPS to update the tracking. Please check the tracking number again tomorrow.Q: The shipping confirmation email does not have the second line of my address, and that is necessary for delivery. The second line was confirmed in my initial confirmation email, so I know I entered it. Was it deleted? Now what?
If the second line was included in your order confirmation email, rest assured it was included on the package. Occasionally, the system does not include the second line in the shipping confirmation email. If you are still concerned, please contact customer service to ensure that second line was on the package.Q: Does the free shipping apply to international orders?
All orders over $45 (not including tax and shipping charges) going to Canada and Australia receive free First-Class Mail International shipping. For full information, click here.Q: Can I have the order sent somewhere other than my billing address?
Yes, you are welcome to ship the order to a different address than your billing address. During checkout, enter your billing address first, at the top of the page, select to ship it to a different address, then enter the full shipping address second. If you choose to create an account with SunglassWarehouse.com, you will be able to save multiple addresses for future delivery.Q: Can I have half the order sent one place, and the other half sent another?
No, we are unable to ship one order to different locations. If different destinations are required, separate orders must be made. Shipping must be paid for each, unless the orders are over the shipping threshold on their own.Q: USPS said my order would be here yesterday, but they did not arrive. Will you refund my shipping?
USPS has been offering an expected delivery date on their tracking information for USPS First Class Mail. This is not a guaranteed delivery date, so the package is still on its way.Q: Is there a list anywhere of countries to which you ship?
To see the countries to which we ship, please proceed to the checkout page, and click on the "Country" drop-down menu. For full information on international orders, click here.Q: My order is over $25 with tax and is shipping to the U.S. OR is over $45 with tax and is shipping to Canada or Australia. Do I get free shipping?
U.S. orders with over $25 of merchandise and orders going to Canada and Australia with over $45 of merchandise qualify for free standard shipping. If tax bumps your order total over $25 or $45 respectively, shipping costs will still be applied. Click here for more information.Q: Why is express/overnight shipping so expensive?
The shipping is calculated by the weight of the package and where it is being shipped. We do not charge extra shipping, so the cost you are seeing comes directly from the shipping company. Also, many overnight/express shipping has to get on an airplane to arrive in time, so this increases the cost a lot.Q: Can you put a "rush" on my order?
If you need your items before the normal processing and shipping time, please call customer service at 1-800-559-4209 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 9:00AM to 6:00PM ET. We will do everything we can to accommodate your request.Q: Do you ship internationally?

Yes, all of our sunglasses block harmful UVA & UVB rays. Our sunglasses have passed the FDA with impact resistance lenses, meet ANSI Z80.3 high UV protection standards, and have been proven and recommended in accordance with the latest guidelines. All of our sunglasses reduce infrared rays and filter color while maintaining high levels of visible contrast.Q: I want to buy your sunglasses by the dozen. Is this possible?
Yes, this is possible. However, we are a retail
store, which means our sunglasses are not priced by the dozen. We can offer
bulk pricing on two or more dozen. The bulk pricing is as follows:
1-10 dozen: 15% off
11-20 dozen: 25% off
21 or more dozen: 40% off
Unfortunately, we do not offer a printed catalog. You can view all of our products online.Q: I noticed the pair I want is out of stock. How long will that take to get the style back in stock?
Styles that are out of stock and not discontinued normally take around two weeks to arrive at our warehouse. If the style is discontinued by the manufacturer, then it will not be available again.Q: I wear prescription sunglasses. What do you have to offer me?
We offer a collection of bifocal reading sunglasses here. We are also pleased to offer our customers fit over sunglasses (found here) in a variety of colors. Simply wear these sunglasses over your necessary prescription glasses to provide instant protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays while you drive, work, or just play.Q: Do you offer a warranty on your sunglasses?
We do not offer a warranty on our sunglasses; however, in the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with the product(s) you purchase from us, or if you receive a defective pair, you can return or exchange the item within 365 days of receipt (as long as the item does not show any signs of use) for a full refund minus any shipping charges that were incurred.Q: What are the definitions of the lens colors?
Visit our lens tint guide for a full list of lens tints and colors we carry.Q: May I use all of your sunglasses for driving purposes?
Some jurisdictions restrict driving and other activities while wearing certain glasses. You should comply with all applicable laws and regulations.Q: Do the sunglasses come with a case?
No, our sunglasses do not come with a case, unless specifically stated in the description. However, we do sell cases separately (you can find them here). They're also listed under "Accessories" in the top hand navigation.Q: Where can I see if the case I want will fit the sunglasses I want or have?
Unfortunately, this is not something we currently have available on our website, but if you are interested in a specific style of sunglasses and a case, you are welcome to contact customer service, and they can double-check the glasses with the case for you.Q: Do you sell designer/name brand sunglasses?
We do not. Our sunglasses are all under $20, and they do not include logos of nor representation as designer brands.Q: What is UV400, and how much protection does it provide? How much UVA/UVB protection do your sunglasses offer?
UV400 is the highest protection possible that you can get in your sunglasses. UV400 is 99-100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. All of the sunglasses that we carry have UV400 protection.Q: What are polarized sunglasses?
Polarized lenses help reduce glare on reflective surfaces, while increasing contrast and visibility in the great outdoors. For an explanation on how polarization works, click here.Q: Do polarized lenses provide more protection?
No, polarization has nothing to do with the amount of sun protection provided.Q: Can you put a logo on my sunglasses?
Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we don't have a way to customize or personalize them.Q: Do you carry any replacement parts or screws?
Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we unfortunately do not have parts we can send you.Q: Can I order reading sunglasses with a different power in each eye?
Because we are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, we are unable to customize magnifications per eye. Each style comes with the same power in each eye.Q: How do I know what size of sunglasses I should get?
All of the glasses we have on our website list the dimensions of the glasses. We recommend measuring a pair of glasses you already have from hinge to hinge to compare to the measurements on our website.Q: Do all of your sunglasses have spring hinges/temples?
While many styles do have spring hinges, not all have this option. The description will almost always state that the style has spring hinges/temples if it applies.Q: Do you have no-line bifocal sunglasses?
We don't carry no-line bifocal sunglasses. Unfortunately, we have been unable to find that style of bifocal sunglasses that we can offer in the current price range of our site.Q: Do you have any transition lenses?
We do not carry any transition lenses. Unfortunately, we have been unable to find that style of lenses that we can offer in the current price range of our site.Q: What are the lenses made of?
The lenses are made of polycarbonate, which keeps the sunglasses lightweight and keeps your eyes safe from shattering.Q: Do you sell any products made in the USA?
We do not. Most of our products come from China.Q: How do I find out the measurement of the width of the lens and bridge?
We do not list those dimensions on the site — we list the height of the lens, the width of the entire frame, from hinge to hinge, and the length of the arm piece, from the front of the frame straight back to where the arm ends. For a diagram of sunglass parts, click here.
