Terms And Conditions

By submitting an order with Cables for Less, you agree to the Terms and Conditions set forth below:

Order Change / Cancellation Policy

  • You may request that we modify or cancel your order via email: orderchanges (at) cablesforless.com or phone: (800) 273-9556, ext. 13 at any time after placing your order, unless it has already been packaged and issued a shipping label (sometimes within minutes after you place your order, as we work very quickly and efficiently to meet our daily shipping deadlines), at which point no modifications or cancellations will be permitted.
  • The presence of a UPS, FedEx, or USPS tracking number, assigned to your order within our internal order management system (viewable only by Cables for Less employees) is how we will determine if your order has already been shipped, and can therefore no longer be modified or canceled. (i.e. Cables for Less' online order status system has a slight delay, and may not display your order as "Shipped" until the end of a given business day, even if a shipping label was generated for your order early in the day).
  • Any modifications or cancellations we perform at your request will incur a $3.00 fee, to be processed using the same payment method originally used for your order. This fee will also be imposed on any undeliverable / refused orders, as well as a 15% restocking fee.

Shipping Deadlines (for same-day shipping)

  • All orders have a shipping deadline of 3:30 PM (ET) during normal business days (Monday through Friday with the exception of holidays).
  • We use many advanced methods to process your order. Over 80% of all orders ship the same day if received by the shipping deadline.
  • Orders placed on the weekend do not ship until the next regular business day, usually Monday.
  • You will receive a confirmation email from us when your order ships. This will include your tracking number (when applicable).

For all credit card orders, we will credit the same card account (minus the 15% re-stocking charge) within 48 hours after receipt of your package.
