Order Status FAQ
You may generate a non-binding written quote by adding the items you are considering to our electronic shopping cart and proceeding to "Secure Checkout". The review page presented before placing an order can be printed and will list all items, our part numbers and prices, and a total price including shipping.
We make an effort to maintain consistent product specifications, price and availability but they may change without notice. In particular, items that remain in a wish list or shopping cart may change before checkout.
We are unable to take telephone orders because we can't take your payment card information over the telephone (why?). However, our online secure checkout process is designed to be easy to use. If you need help to make your order we are happy to stay on the phone with you to talk you through the entire process including the checkout. Placing the order online also reduces the risk of an order entry error because you will be able to see and verify your order before placing it.
As a last resort, we can manually enter an order on your behalf and manually issue a PayPal payment request. If you have a PayPal account, you'll then have to login to your PayPal account and approve the request. If you don't have a PayPal account, and do not wish to create one, you can check your email for a message from PayPal with a link to a unique PayPal page where you can enter your credit card to make a one time payment. Once we receive your PayPal payment, we can release the order to shipping.
If you paid for your order using PayPal or Apple Pay they may not have provided your billing address, so we will use the shipping address as the billing address. If you would like to update our records of your billing address on the order you placed, just reply to the order confirmation e-mail you received with your request. If you prefer, send your request to with enough information to identify your order.
Depending on your method of payment and if you have not yet received notification that your order has shipped, we usually can succeed in changing the shipping address on your order before it leaves our warehouse. If you paid for your order using any method other than Paypal, you can just reply to the order confirmation e-mail you received with your request. If you prefer, send your request via our Contact Us page with enough information to identify your order.
If you paid for your order using PayPal, their rules protecting your account with them will not allow us to change the ship to address after payment is made using those systems. Unfortunately, that means you will need to cancel and reenter your order:
- Send us a cancellation request (please mention you intend to replace the order with a new shipping address)
- Wait for our acknowledgement the order was cancelled and refunded
- Add the new shipping address in your PayPal account at their website
- Reenter your order at our website and select the alternate shipping address provided from Paypal.
If your order has already shipped, using your tracking number you may be able to manage delivery of your package with the appropriate USPS Informed Delivery®, UPS My Choice®, or DHL On Demand™ website to request a redirect to a different address.
If you have not yet received notification that your order has shipped, we can accommodate most types of edits to your order.
For simple changes to your order, you can just reply to the order confirmation e-mail you received to make your request. If you prefer, you can also send your request via our Contact Us page with enough information to identify your order. If the edit results in a change in the payment total for your order, depending on how you paid we may be able to adjust the payment amount or we may need to issue a separate refund or payment request in the amount of the adjustment.
For significant additions it's often more expedient to just place another order, and in the "special instructions" dialog box just above the "Place Order" button request we merge the order with the previous order number. If you are due any refund of shipping charges we'll make the appropriate adjustment.
For significant changes please keep in mind that our manual edits may increase the likelihood of an error. Depending on the circumstances it may be easier to enter a replacement order and in the "special instructions" dialog box just above the "Place Order" button request we cancel the previous order number.
If you have not yet received notification that your order has shipped, we usually can succeed in cancelling your order before it leaves our warehouse.

Orders shipped outside the US are subject to local import fees that will be collected by the courier upon delivery. Please read our article titled Customs Clearance for Small Parcels for a detailed explanation of import duty and tax. Please read our SCUBA Diving Equipment Import Duties and Taxes page for detailed country by country guidelines to estimating duties and taxes.
Yes, you may place an order for in-store delivery up to a maximum of 30 days ahead of the requested pickup date. Use our shopping cart as normal to build your order. Please select "Secure Checkout" to begin checkout. During checkout choose "In Store Pickup" as the shipping option and pay close attention to the ship to address that appears.
Note that your order total will include the local 6% State of Florida Sales Tax. (Using online payment systems such as PayPal can overwrite the shipping address of our store, causing calculation of the local sales tax to be incorrect.) We will charge your card immediately, pull and assemble your order as normal, then release the complete but unpackaged order to our customer service desk to await your arrival. To enable us to process your order prior to your arrival, please allow at least one hour (longer for DGX Custom items) before pick up. Visit our directions page for more information about our location.
