Can we be invoiced instead of using a credit card?

When will I receive credit for my return?
The time it takes for your refund to appear on your credit card account varies depending on your credit card type and when the item was received at our warehouse. Please allow one to two billing cycles for the refund to appear on your credit card statement.
Does UpStart Auto Parts handle warranties?

How much is shipping?
Shipping depends on various factors such as your shipping location and the weight of your total order. There is a real-time freight estimator in the shopping cart, which returns pricing from US Postal Service and FedEx. Just enter your shipping zip code, and our magic freight calculator will calculate your rate!
What are my shipping options?
Ordering an item from UpStart Auto Parts? We can ship to virtually any address in the United States. Note that there are shipping restrictions on some products and therefore cannot be shipped outside the US 48 contiguous states. Please be sure to read product descriptions to review any shipping restrictions. UpStart Auto Parts uses US Postal Service, FedEx, and discount shippers exclusively to ship items unless otherwise specified under product descriptions, when items are purchased in bulk, or when US Postal Service or FedEx cannot be used for other reasons.

Am I required to pay Sales Tax?
Yes, it's based on your "Ship To" address.
How much is Sales Tax?
By law, sales tax is automatically computed on product charges. To see the total sales tax that will be charged on your order, click on the "checkout" button. This will not complete your order; it will only display your order summary. The order summary shows what your order will look like, including how much tax will be charged.
