Frequently Asked Questions

Do you Accept Purchase Orders?

Yes, at our discretion we accept purchase orders from all Schools Districts & Higher Educational Institutes, Hospitals, Goverments, and Non for Profit entities and we will ship your goods upon receiving a valid purchase order. Public listed companies may also apply for an account. Payment terms are 30 days from invoice.

"I'm hesitant to enter my Credit Card Information on your website. I've heard a lot about Online Fraud lately."
There's pratically zero chance of credit card thief when you buy from us. In the last 20 years, and over 20,000 transactions we know of only 1 occasion a customer even suspected that the fraud on their credit card happened while ordering from our ecommerce website.  Not to mention, through our merchant account provider, PayPal Payment Pro (formally owned by Verisign), we only receive the last 4 digits of your credit card number and we DO NOT receive your security code. We're unable to apply even 1 CENT to your total! Rest assured your card info is safe with us.

Where do you ship from?

We ship from two different warehouses in Southern California and one in Southern Florida.

How long will it take for me to receive my order?

We pride ourselves on our quick turn around
If you need your cable quickly you've come to the right place. We ship same day as ordered, in most cases. Cutoff time is 3:00pm EST, 3PM PST Mon-Fri. Most customers receive their orders in ~2-3 business days. Expedited shipping methods (UPS Next Day and 2 Day Air are also available on request. Once you order we'll even send you a tracking number showing your scheduled delivery date.

Do you Guarantee you will ship out today?

Although we advertise "Same Day Shipping" on the website, this should in NO WAY be construed as a guarantee of  same day shipping. It is rarity that we miss an order and not ship the same day, Monday through Friday, if the order is place by 3:00pm PST (and 3:00pm EST to ship for East Coast shipping location). Expedited shipping methods, such as Next Day Air, 2 Day Air, and 3 Day Select  will always receive first priority. 

What is your cut off time for shipping?

Generally its 3:00pm PST for West Coast shipments and 3:00pm EST for East Coast shipments.  Many items may ship after that time.  Never do we delayed an order to go the following day just because it's past 3:00PM.  If we can ship it...we ship it.  Email or call us if you require info about an item shipping after 3:00pm your local time.

Will you ship outside the Continental US?

We ship only to USA.  Hawaii and Alaska may incurr extra costs.  Hawaii and Alaska customers please email us at with your zip code so we can calculate your shipping charge.

Why should I buy from you, and why are your products so inexpensive?

At our company, we take pride in three key areas: affordability, high-quality products, and exceptional customer service. With over 20 years of experience and over 100,000 successful transactions under our belt, we have established ourselves as a reliable source for network cabling solutions. As a small, efficiently run, internet-based company, we do not incur the additional expenses that larger stores must contend with, such as overhead costs associated with brick and mortar locations, such as cashier salaries, healthcare expenses, parking facilities, additional floor space, employee theft, and security measures. By eliminating these costs, we are able to pass the savings on to our customers.

Which payment methods do you offer?


Which Shipping Companies do you use?

We ship mostly UPS, but also FedEX on occasion.

1 Day UPS Overnight Air , 2 Day UPS Air are based on request.  3 Day UPS Select are now incorporated in our website's checkout.

If you are hesitant about using us for an expedited method you are more than welcome to call or email us to inquire if we are able to ship your specific product out that day. Email us at for specifics on either USPS Priority Mail, 3 Day Select, 2 Day Air or Overnight shipping.

May I use my UPS or FedEx account to pay shipping charges?

We prefer to use our own shipping account, but may make exceptions.
