Order Processing Policy

All orders placed by 1:00pm EST Monday - Friday will ship same day. This policy is subject to change during peak seasons (Christmas, Black Friday, etc.). Ample notification will be given through e-mail as well as banner ads on our website as this changes.

Flat Rate Shipping

A discounted shipping rate is available for most products. Some exclusions will apply. Firearms, ammunition, gift cards/certificates and oversized items (such as Bogg Bags, Simply Totes, Luggage, ENO Stands, YETI Coolers, etc.) are not eligible.

If you have qualifying product and other ineligible items in your cart we will show you a special combined $5 Flat Rate + UPS® Ground rate that takes this into account. Shipping promotions cannot be redeemed for cash. Terms are subject to change at any time without prior notice.

We may run shipping promotions (such as Free Shipping) that require you to reach a specific threshold before they apply.

This policy does not apply to products listed for sale in the "Shop ACE" Category. Shop ACE products are unique to acehardware.com. Shipping terms and conditions are dependent on acehardware.com and may vary depending on your geographic location.

In-Store Pickup

Orders with an address within South Carolina's Midlands will have the option to pickup their order in-store at 40 W. Wesmark Blvd. If you are trying to place an order for pickup and need help, please contact us!


Because of its incendiary nature, ammunition is considered a "hazardous material shipment" and can only be shipped UPS® Ground. Ammunition is also not eligible for flat rate or discounted shipping. Please see our Firearms & Ammunition Ordering Guidelines for more information.


Firearms can only be shipped to FFL Dealers and are not eligible for flat rate or discounted shipping. Please see our Firearms & Ammunition Ordering Guidelines for more information.
