When selecting a price/time combination make sure you know these facts:
- Manufacturing times shown in the price dialog are estimates - they are not guaranteed.
- Pad2pad may schedule your job on a more expensive faster process. Even so, the faster more expensive option does not always win. You might pay extra for fast manufacturing and actually get slow manufacturing. Similarly you might pay less for slow delivery and actually get fast delivery.
- Prices are not adjusted up or down based on early or late actual delivery time -- even if the actual delivery time coincides with an alternate price / time combination.
- While Pad2pad strives to ship on time, there are many
factors that can delay delivery:
- manufacturing complications
- supplier delays
- equipment malfunction
- labor shortage
- overload of orders
- Times are in business days - they don't include weekends or holidays.
- Manufacturing time does not include transit time.
