Yes, all checks, cashier’s checks, and money orders are held three (3) to five (5) business days. Unfortunately, we regularly receive fake money orders and checks, and the only way to fully verify payment is to wait out the bounce period. Once your check clears, your order will ship. An email notification will be sent when your order ships. In extreme cases, we reserve the right to hold a paper check as long as a month before shipping an order.
