About Quotation Timing
The Aldrich Market Select Purchasing System allows the customer to get a binding
price for many products interactively through the web site Check Out page.
The customer may also request custom price quotations through the Check Out page.
Our overall goal in the Aldrich Market Select program is to deliver custom
quotations within 24 hours of the online request. We will strive to meet this
guideline in all cases. However, custom quotations for Priced on Availability
(POA) products may be reliant on the supplier confirming details for the custom
quote such as sample state, purity, shipment times, etc. In these cases a
custom quotation may take up to 3 business days.
About Shipping, Order Handling & Additional Expenses
Under the Aldrich Market Select program all ordered compounds and building blocks
are shipped to a regional Sigma-Aldrich handling facility where they are packaged
for shipment to the customer. Sigma-Aldrich will manage all international compliance
issues and act as importer and exporter of record for all shipments.
Freight/Shipping - Freight from the regional Sigma-Aldrich facility to the customer
is managed according to any existing freight agreement between the customer and
Sigma-Aldrich. Please check with your regional sales person for your freight program
status or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3rd Party Product Import/Shipping/Handling Fees - For orders greater than $200 in
product value, these fees are waived for the customer. For orders less that $200 in
product value, there will be a flat rate $50 processing fee.
Supplier Minimum Order & Administrative Fees - Where these type fees are required
by the supplier they are included. These details for any specific Cart may be found
under the link associated with Additional Expenses on the Check Out page.
About Product Delivery Times
Sigma-Aldrich will work to deliver your ordered compounds and building block products
as quickly as possible. Supplier shipment times are listed in the Aldrich Market
Select web site. These provide information on the time for the supplier to package and
ship a typical order to our regional Sigma-Aldrich facility. Please note that the
delivery time for any set of ordered products will be dependant on the product with
the longest supplier shipment time.
Typical Delivery Time - To estimate the typical delivery time for a set of products
is to consider the product with the longest shipment time plus 2 business days for
US domestic shipments and 4 days for international shipments.
Partial Shipments - If a customer desires, orders may be split into partial shipments
to reduce delivery times. Please be careful to consider the potential additional cost
of shipments if you decide to accept partial shipments.
Under the Aldrich Market Select program some products are flagged for compliance issues.
These flags are to alert you that there may be special requirements for processing
orders for substances shipped to the countries listed in the Compliance Alert. You will
be contacted by a customer service representative if there are compliance issues
related to your order.
