Shipping & Delivery
- One Business Day Processing on Most In-Stock Orders
At Dorm-Room.com we know you want your order fast. That's why we strive to ship most orders stocked in our warehouse within one business day.Order Processing and Shipping
We've worked to create a fast, efficient and fair system for order processing and shipping. We know you want your order quickly, at the lowest possible cost.
Processing Time = the amount of time it takes from the moment you submit your order until we place it on a truck for shipment. Processing time may vary, based on the size and availability of your item, but is typically one day.
Shipping Time = depends on the shipping method you choose. Please see the chart below for estimated shipping times.
Total Delivery Time = the amount of time it takes from the moment you submit your order until the packages arrive.
You can use this formula to determine when your order will arrive:
Estimated Processing Time + Estimated Shipping Time = Estimated Total Delivery Time
Shipping Method: Estimated Shipping Time
Standard: 2-6 Business Days
Premium: 2 Business Days
Express: 1 Business Days
• Business days exclude Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays.
• Estimated Total Delivery Time applies to in-stock products only, not backorders.
• We can't guarantee Estimated Shipping Times. Those are determined by the specific carrier.
• We charge a base shipping rate of $4.80, plus a per-pound rate for total order weights greater than 1 pound.
• We calculate shipping cost this way: Base Rate + (Total Weight x Price Per Pound) = Total
You won't pay shipping for Gift Cards, even if the Gift Card is the only item you order.
If you qualify for a free gift with your purchase, we ship the gift free of charge. However, if you decide to send the free gift to a friend or relative at a different address, we'll charge you the base price for that shipment.
Right now, we only ship to addresses in the United States. We hope to offer expanded international shipping soon. Unfortunately, we can't accept International credit cards or any credit card with a billing address outside the United States.
Privacy & Security
- Commitment to Privacy
We value you as a customer, and we know you're concerned about protecting your privacy online. Our mission is to inform you of our policies for collecting, sharing, disseminating and securing customer information online.
What Information Do You Gather About Me?
What We Gather
We need your name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, phone number and last four digits of your credit card number to process and ship your order. We will e-mail you to confirm your order and keep you updated on your order status. If we have a question about your order, we may contact you by e-mail or by phone. For example, we may call you to verify your credit card information on a large purchase.
Who We Share It With
We only share customer information with service providers to conduct business on behalf of our company and its affiliated entities. This includes, but is not limited to: Credit card authorization and processing companies, customer service providers and shippers. In the event of a bankruptcy, insolvency, merger or acquisition, customer information, including personal information, may be transferred. We may also disclose aggregate, non-identifiable customer information (such as number of visits or average order amounts) to advertisers or other third parties.
Contacting Dorm-Room.com Customer Service
If you contact our customer service, we may use your name, e-mail address, phone number and order history to answer your question as quickly as possible. On occasion, we may contact you later to verify information or to check on the quality of your Customer Service contact.
We may release customer account or other information if we're advised that release is necessary to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property and safety of our company, its affiliates, customers or others. We may also exchange information with companies and organizations or law enforcement for loss prevention and credit risk reduction.
How Secure is My Information?
1. Protecting your personal information: We use PayPal to process all payments.
2. All PayPal transactions are covered with 100% protection against unauthorized payments sent from your account.
3. Qualified transactions are also covered by PayPal's Buyer Complaint Policy. See PayPal.com for more information.
4. PayPal Buyer Protection covers eBay transactions paid with PayPal up to $200.00 USD. Qualified transactions are covered up to $2,000.00 USD. See PayPal.com for more information.
Protecting Your Password
We also attempt to limit unauthorized access to your account. If you forget your password, you can create a new one. You can do your part to protect your personal information by keeping your password a secret and making sure you log off completely if you share a computer.
Creating an account: Unlike many e-commerce sites, we don't require our customers to create an account and keep information on file with us. However, creating an account makes it even faster and easier to shop at our site. With an account, you can take advantage of special features like Express Checkout.
Your Credit Card Number
Because we use PayPal to process all payments, we do not have visibility to your credit card number, only the last four digits appear on the invoice.
Your Wish List
Creating a Wish List: If you create a Wish List at Dorm-Room.com, you must first create Your Account. Wish List works like a Gift Registry. As a registered customer, you can create as many Wish Lists as you need. If you choose to share your Wish List(s) with family members or friends, the "share" feature is designed only for shopping convenience and no other purpose.
Your Wish List Information: When you create a Wish List, you provide us with basic information, including your name, e-mail address, state and the names and birthdays associated with each Wish List you build.
Use of the E-Mail Addresses of Your Family Members and Friends: If you decide to use the "Share my Wish List" feature, we will e-mail your Wish List to the e-mail addresses you provide, along with your personal message.
Use of Your E-mail Address: By using the "Share Your Wish List" feature, you authorize Dorm-Room.com to share your e-mail address with your family members and friends.
Use of the Wish List Directory: We give you the opportunity to include your Wish List in our directory. That way, your family members and friends or any Dorm-Room.com customer can search for your list using the name and state associated with your Wish List. When your family members and friends decide to make a purchase, we don't show your shipping address during the checkout process. If you don't want others to 1) find your Wish List using your name and state information, or 2) see your name, birthday (day and month only), event type, event date or gender, do not add your Wish List to our directory.
Wish List Terms: By using the Wish List feature, you agree to the terms outlined above.
How does Dorm-Room.com Recognize Me?

We use URL encoding to monitor your shopping activity on our site. We may use this information to determine the most popular products and pages on our site and to enhance our marketing efforts and activities. This helps us make changes to improve your shopping experience.

We'll e-mail you confirming your order as soon as we receive it. Save the e-mail, because it includes an order number. We'll also e-mail confirmation of your shipment as soon as your package leaves our fulfillment center.
I didn't receive an order and/or shipping confirmation?
If you don't receive an order confirmation within 24 hours, contact contact@Dorm-Room.com. We don't send shipping confirmation e-mails until your order leaves the fulfillment center. I only received part of my order. If you just received your order, please be patient. We often pack and ship orders that contain several items in separate boxes. Occasionally, the packages arrive on different days, even if we shipped them at the same time with the same tracking number.
Why is my order backordered, and when can I expect shipment?
Because the most popular items at Dorm-Room.com sell so quickly, we occasionally run out. If this happens, we'll notify you with an estimated ship date and we'll follow up with a progress report. We make every effort to send you the items you want in a reasonable amount of time. If you have specific questions about backorders, please e-mail contact@Dorm-Room.com
On very rare occasions an item may be backordered. Dorm-Room.com makes every attempt to ship backordered item(s) within 15 days. Often, we don't know if more of certain items will be available in the future.
Do you have a question about backorders?
Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is standing by to help. We're open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Customer Service is closed Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays.
