Ordering & Return Policies

Cottonwood Music Emporium will ship completed orders Monday-Saturday, usually within one business day. Cottonwood Music Emporium does not ship on Sundays.

Domestic Shipping
Most orders shipped within the Continental United States over $50 will ship free via USPS or UPS, depending on the items ordered.

Orders shipping within the United States with USPS Priority Mail may have delivery confirmation functionality. USPS Priority ships with an estimated delivery time, but this is not a guaranteed shipping time. USPS Priority Mail Express shipping is guaranteed within 48 hours of time of pickup. An automated email with tracking will be sent once the tracking number is assigned, which can be tracked at USPS.com.

UPS Ground shipping time depends on delivery location and can be up to 5 business days. To get delivery estimates prior to making an order check UPS.com. All UPS shipments will require a signature unless requested otherwise. An automated email with tracking will be sent once the tracking number is assigned.

All shipping estimates for USPS and UPS are from the time of pickup and do not take into account order processing time.

International Shipping
Cottonwood Music Emporium does not ship international orders by default. If you're located outside of the United States please send us an email for a shipping quote.
