Shipping Costs and Methods


HOTSAUCE.COM® has partnered with FedEx as our primary shipping carrier! Our decision to partner with FedEx was prompted by FedEx’s lower shipping rates, faster delivery times for residential addresses, and Saturday Ground Home Delivery!* Now HotSauce.com customers can enjoy premier FEDEX shipping services with even lower rates while maintaining quality and expedient shipping.

HOTSAUCE.COM® offers shipping of all hot sauces and fiery foods within the US and Internationally. Shipping costs are calculated when you choose your shipping method during checkout. Shipping charges are calculated via real-time using published FEDEX and USPS rates based upon exact weight, size, and exact destination address.

*With FEDEX GROUND HOME DELIVERY, shipments are delivered Tuesday – Saturday. For most shipments the delivery times will not be affected; however, the Saturday delivery will allow FedEx to make certain deliveries 2 days earlier than UPS!
