We try to make shipping your order simple, but we know it can be confusing sometimes. Take a look at the information below. Hopefully it’ll help. If it doesn’t, please give us a call at 1-800-206-6949. We’ll be happy to answer whatever questions you may have.
Shipping Methods Overview
We can get your delicious cherry products shipped out on the same day if you get your order in by 11 a.m. on a weekday. If you place your order later than that, your products will probably have to wait until the next business day. Orders are processed and shipped Monday through Friday. We promise we’ll try really hard not to eat them.
We’re told we have to say that we can’t guarantee delivery times. Apparently, things like bad weather can delay shipments. We also blame things like hitting every red light, our poor sense of direction, and people who drive too slowly in the left lane.

Standard Flat Rate Shipping
Our most popular method of shipping, our Standard Flat Rate Shipping let's you ship as much as you like to a single address for just $8.95. In fact, maybe we should call it our Gold Standard Flat Rate Shipping?
There are just a couple of small points to bear in mind. First, to get our standard flat rate shipping, you have to be shipping to a physical street address or PO Box within the continental U.S. but excludes addresses in Alaska or Hawaii. Second, while orders typically take 4-9 days, there have been rare occasions when they take a day or two longer. If the order is in any way time-sensitive, we'd suggest upgrading to Expedited Flat Rate Shipping.
Expedited Flat Rate Shipping
We use FedEx Ground for our Expedited Flat Rate Shipping. It’ll cost you $11.95 but your cherries will be delivered lickety-split. As long as you place your order with us by 11.00 a.m., you'll receive your shipment in 1-4 days, depending on what zone you are shipping to. Use the map below to figure out when exactly to expect them to arrive.
And yes, there are still a handful of conditions. Sorry! To get our Expedited Flat Rate Shipping, you have to be shipping to a physical street address within the continental U.S. This rate does not apply to PO Boxes or to addresses in Alaska or Hawaii.
Here’s the map.
While many of our Flat Rate shipments do arrive in 1-2 days, we can’t guarantee delivery dates. If you want the peace of mind of a guaranteed delivery date or if you’re shipping somewhere where ground will take 3-5 days (looking at you, California), then give our 2-Day Guarantee a whirl.
You’ll need to place your order by 11.00 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Saturday delivery is possible for only a handful of major destinations, so give us a call if you’re placing your order after 11.00 a.m. on Wednesday and want to ship using 2-Day Guarantee.
Patience not your virtue? Try Overnight Delivery to get your cherries at warp speed.
To ship via Overnight, you’ll need to place your order by 11.00 a.m. Monday through Thursday. Saturday delivery is possible for only a handful of major destinations, so give us a call if you’re placing your order after 11.00 a.m. on a Thursday and want to ship Overnight.
Alaska and Hawaii
Alas, the fine people of Alaska and Hawaii have a harder time than most when it comes to getting their hands on our cherry treats. The only shipping option we offer for these destinations is Priority Mail. Shipments will typically take about 3 days to get there.
It also costs a little more to ship to Alaska and Hawaii, so we generally have to exclude those destinations from any discounted shipping promotions we may be offering. We're really sorry about that. But perhaps that inconvenience is a small price to pay for living somewhere so amazingly beautiful.

Priority Mail Express
Our fastest international delivery option will get your cherries to their destination in approximately 3-5 business days. It’s not teleportation, but it beats a carrier pigeon.
In approximately 6-10 business days we can have your goodies delivered to any one of over 180 countries via Priority Mail International. Basically, we’ll ship our cherries anywhere it won’t cause a diplomatic incident… although causing one could be really entertaining.

The men and women of our nation’s Armed Forces deserve all the recognition they get and then some. Whether they’re actively deployed in some far-flung corner of the world or providing valuable service domestically, we hold them in the highest esteem.
As a small token of our appreciation, Cherry Republic provides shipping to all Army, Air Force, and Fleet Post Offices free of charge, all the time. We hope this small gesture increases the amount of homegrown cherry goodness being sent to the finest people we can imagine.
Please note: delivery times are considerably longer when shipping to military addresses. Shipments can take several weeks.
To send to an APO or FPO address, enter either APO or FPO as the city, select the appropriate Armed Forces “state” (Armed Forces Europe, Armed Forces Pacific, etc.) and select the United States as the country.
