In the event an incorrect shipping option is selected we will notify you by email with the correct shipping charge. Shipping option selection is considered incorrect if: 1) The shipping option selected does not match your specified delivery address. (for example: incorrect geographical area is selected or rural delivery option is not selected when your delivery address is an RD) Or, 2) The shipping option selected is for specific conditions (such as for orders over a certain dollar amount) which your order does not meet.
