Terms and Conditions

Payment Options

Online orders from new customers must be paid by credit card. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are acceptable methods of payment. Credit cards are debited upon shipment.

If your company currently has an open account with Navitar, you may provide a purchase order number during checkout.


All shipments are F.O.B. Rochester, New York. You have the option to ship items to the address of your choice. Shipping charges are based on the total weight of the merchandise shipping to that address. A street address is required.

Orders are shipped via UPS or FedEx (UPS only for online orders), and are prepaid and billed to the buyer. Customers have the option to use their own freight collect account. Please provide that account number during the checkout process. Navitar shipments remain the property of Navitar until invoices are paid in full.

International Orders

Navitar ships to most locations outside the US. Any taxes/fees/duties associated with international orders are the responsibility of the consignee. For more information, please contact your Navitar sales representative.


Delivery is based on availability of stock. Standard delivery for in-stock items is 5-7 business days. For expedited UPS shipping options, all orders received before noon EST will be delivered according to the method selected. All non-stocked items are shipped within 2-3 weeks of order receipt. You will be notified if we are unable to deliver within these time frames and have the option to cancel. As an added service, if you have selected items with an extended lead-time, you will be contacted with recommendations for alternatives. We have no responsibility for loss or damage to the goods after we have delivered them to UPS.
