New Product (Manufacturer Direct) Shipping/Delivery FAQs
What is a New Product item?
To give you a selection of handpicked products, we’ve introduced Manufacturer Direct, a collection of items that are shipped to you directly from the manufacturer. Ranging from spirit wear and tailgate supplies to bedding and housewares, these items are available to you from one convenient shop and for fast shipping within the continental United States.
How do I apply a promotional code to my order?
In the shopping cart page, there will be a section labeled “Coupon Code”. Enter the promotional coupon code there, and you will see the change made to your order reflected in the cart page.
Pricing errors may occur on the Balfour.com site. Balfour reserves the right to cancel any orders containing pricing errors, with no further obligations to you, even after your receipt of an order confirmation or shipping notice from Balfour. Balfour may, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
What if my order is lost?
If the delivery time frame has passed and/or the tracking on your Manufacturer Direct order shows “delivered”, but you have not received your package, contact our customer care team within 15 business days of the order’s original ship date.
Why didn’t all my items ship together?
Most Manufacturer Direct orders ship within one or two business day of order processing. In some cases, orders with multiple items are shipped in more than one package. Below is a list of reasons for why items may ship separately:
- Order contains many items and must be shipped in more than one package.
- Items in order are shipping from more than one shipping facility.
- Customized items have a longer lead time and may ship separately.
