Orders shipped via Ground service can be in transit for up to 14 business days. The Nikon Store has contracted UPS to deliver packages sent via UPS Ground Delivery Service from Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

A signature is required for orders over $500 or if requested by the purchaser when the order is placed. The Nikon Store is not responsible for packages once UPS has confirmed that the package has been delivered to its specified destination. If you place an order and a signature is required, it must be delivered to the shipping address used when the order was placed. If UPS attempts to deliver a package and no one is there to sign for it, UPS can not release the package to you at the UPS depot or change the delivery address.  Orders with upgraded shipping services (UPS 2nd Day and UPS Next Day Air), received before 3:00 PM EST, are processed the same day that the order is placed.
