Priority Processing ShippingNEW! Order as late as 10:30PM Central Time and OWC Priority Processing shipment option for nearly guaranteed Same Day Ship Out! OWC Priority options receive expedited handling - including any special handling required for address verification or payment authorization. Like any order placed, these orders must be shipping to an approved/verified address and have payment approved - but our team is here late to resolve any issue that may otherwise prevent your order from being shipped for the desired delivery.

Other World Computing accepts orders via this website 24 Hours a Day and 7 Days a week. Representatives are here to assist by phone as late as 10:00PM M-F, 4PM on Saturdsay at 800-275-4576 (or 815-338-8685). Live Chat is now available via the website 24 Hours a Day and 7 Days a week - excluding most US National Holidays. E-Mail contact options are also available. Click 'here' for all contact options.

OWC operates and ships orders Monday through Saturday with the exception of most US National Holidays on which standard shipping/delivery services are not available.

OWC offers a variety of shipping options which orders are usually processed and shipped out on the same day when placed as late as 7:30PM. For those 'Must Go Same Day' orders, we now offer 'Priority Expedited' options that are all but guaranteed to ship on the day ordered placed as late as 10:30PM Central Time. When an order is placed using a Priority Expedited option, an OWC team member will contact you if, for any reason, there is an issue that could delay your order from shipping with the full intention of resolving this issue in time to still ship that day. Not all options are available to all delivery destinations.

Orders with item(s) that are on backorder will be held until the complete order can ship. If you would prefer to receive in stock items without delay, please place a separate order for those items not shown as in stock 'same day'..

Your credit card will not be charged until OWC is ready to ship your order. If for any reason your method of payment declines the charge, a member of our team will contact you to attempt to resolve any related issue so that your order can then be shipped. We are not able to ship orders without an approved payment option which may include Visa, MC, AMEX, Discover, PayPal, or approved Net Terms. Currently orders are accepted online via Visa/MC/AMEX/Discover and PayPal.

To avoid unnecessary delay, please be sure to provide accurate billing, ship to, and phone/email contact information:

  • When using a credit or debit card it is very important to provide the correct billing address for the card used, which is where your billing statement is received as this information is automatically verified by most issuing banks at the time OWC attempts to authorize your card.
  • When the provided billing address information does not match the card issuer's records, manual verification may be required which will delay the processing and ship out of your order.
  • Orders shipping to the same address as the correct statement billing address or to an address OWC has previously shipped to and verified are not subject to any verification delay.
  • OWC now supports Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCard authentication. When an enrolled Visa or Mastercard from an participating card issuer is used for and order and successfully authenticated, orders are typically processed without delay - even when the ship to address is different from the billing.
  • OWC is always here to help. Should any issue exist concering the payment method and ship to address requested, we will attempt to contact you via the options you have provided. You can also contact us by email, phone, or live chat.

In compliance with Visa/MC/AMEX/Discover/JCB processing regulations, OWC has authentication and verification processes in place to protect credit card and debit card holders. Automatic verification options that occur at the time of your check out may include: AVS billing Address Verification, CVC/CVVC Card ID Verification, and, if you bank supports these programs, an instant online verification may be provided with Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCard. The Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCard programs are provided by Visa and MasterCard to allow the instant approval of your order and without normal alternative ship to address verification required.

If you checkout using a Visa or Mastercard, and your debit or credit card issuer participates in the MasterCard SecureCard or Verified by Visa programs, an instant online verification will be provided. These programs allow the instant approval of your order and without restriction on where you would like your order shipped. These programs are designed and provided Visa & MasterCard to offer the safe and secure use of your credit or debit card and provide swift order processing that isn't subject to delay caused by other verification options.

Shipping Note: US National Holidays are not included in the number of transit days required. For example, an order that ships by Overnight Service on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Thursday should be expected on Friday. An order that ships at the same time via a 2nd Day service should be expected the following. National holidays are also not included in the number of days transit for Mail/Ground/2nd Day/or Overnight Delivery options.
