How to know about a certain item size is running?

Unless noted otherwise, clothing items are traditionally standard sizes. Please feel free to contact our Customer Service department if you have questions or sizing concerns.

How to know if an item is in stock?

If an item is on back order there will be a notation saying, “Backordered” and an approximate date when we expect our next shipment. It generally takes an additional 7-10 days for you to receive the merchandise once we receive it in our distribution center.

Website Information:

Is our site secure?

Trade Life™ uses SSL (Secure Socket Layering) 128-bit encryption to protect your information as it travels over the Internet. We also hold a secure key, or digital certificate, through Digital Signature Trust. This key ensures that we are who we say we are and that any data exchanged online is protected from theft and tampering. Consumer protection laws protect you against any unauthorized use of your credit card. Federal law dictates that your legal liability is limited to $50 if your credit card number is used without your permission. If you suspect any illegal use of your card, call your issuing bank immediately to make sure your rights are protected.

Payment Information:

Using a gift card or coupon as payment.

During your check out, you may enter your gift card or coupon number for easy payment. The dollar amount is already stored in our files and will be automatically calculated.

Which credit cards do you accept?

We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover cards.

When am I charged a shipping surcharge?

Shipping surcharges are an additional fee added to items that are heavy and/or oversized. The carrier will charge additional money for items that are large and assessing this surcharge instead of getting individual shipping quotes makes the order entry process quicker. Your original shipping and handling charges are taken into consideration when setting this fee so that you only pay the correct amount of shipping costs.

Miscellaneous:

How do I find manufacturer information?

We are unable to provide manufacturer or vendor information on any item featured on our website. If you have questions about your purchases, please contact our Customer Service department between the hours of 8am to 5pm Eastern Time.

What is a backorder?

A backorder is an order placed for an item that is not currently in stock. If we are able to re-order additional merchandise from our source, we will accept your order pending the arrival of new stock. This order is then noted as a “backorder”. Backorder times vary but are normally just a matter of weeks. Because we do a full quality inspection on our products, it takes up to 48 hours for merchandise to ship once it is received in our distribution center.

Returns and Exchanges:

Are you billed for shipping on an exchange order?

If you have exchanged for the same item/same item number, but want a different size or color, we do not charge shipping, as a courtesy. If you exchange for a different item number, shipping charges are assessed.
