Why do I have to pay a delivery charge for backorders?
Since MidwayUSA charges the delivery costs associated with getting an order from MidwayUSA to the Customer’s door, and there are charges associated with all shipments, MidwayUSA charges PHI for backorder shipments. We believe charging for PHI at the time of shipment is the most “Fair & Honest" way to treat our Customers because Customers are only paying for the portion of PHI associated with the product we are shipping. If we used a rate chart based on the dollar value of an order, our Customers would pay for the delivery charges associated with their entire order instead of only the portion we are shipping. A benefit of this practice is you don’t have to worry about getting any portion of PHI back from us if you cancel your backorder because we haven’t collected any money for that backorder.
