Nike is one of the most popular sports brands in the world.
While known primarily for their shoes, they also sell plenty of other apparel, as well as sports equipment and accessories.
If you’re shopping on their website, you may be wondering – how long does Nike take to ship, and how long will delivery take?
In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
How Long Does Nike Take To Ship?
Currently, Nike takes 1 to 12 business days for products to be delivered, depending on the shipping option selected at checkout.
An exact delivery window can be previewed by using the shipping tool located on all of Nike’s sales pages, even before adding the product to the cart.
Simply type in your zip code, and click the submit button. The box will update, showing estimates on when that specific item should arrive. The fact that it’s tailored to your specific location makes it very convenient!
In this example, the ‘No Rush Shipping’ option took 8 days, the standard shipping took 7 days, and the expedited shipping took only 2 days.
Nike also offers an ‘Express Shipping’ option on some items, that can be even faster. However, on customized items (such as Nike By You shoes), shipping and delivery can take longer.
As a general rule of thumb, the various shipping speeds for regular, non-customized Nike orders can be estimated as follows:
No Rush Shipping: 3-8 business days.
Standard Shipping: 3-7 business days.
Expedited Shipping: 2 business days.
Express Shipping: 2 business days or less.
However, these timelines can vary depending on the items ordered, and other factors that only Nike can take into account.
Therefore, the best thing you can do is to simply reference the delivery window promised at checkout. Ultimately, this will give you the most accurate and up-to-date estimate on when your specific order will arrive.
Does Nike Have Any Expedited Shipping Options?
Yes, Nike has options for expedited shipping, depending on your order. However, not all orders are eligible for expedited shipping.
For example, expedited shipping is not available for Nike By You shoes, due to the personalized nature of the products.
Expedited shipping costs $10 for signed-in Nike members, and $20 for guests.
Additionally, Nike offers an even faster shipping method on some orders called Express Shipping that is $20 for signed-in Nike members, and $30 for guests.
The exact delivery speed of each shipping option can vary depending on the contents of your order. However, an exact timeline will be provided to you when you go to checkout.
Does Nike Ship On Weekends?
No, Nike does not ship out orders on weekends. Instead, they only process and ship out orders on Monday-Friday, excluding any major holidays.
This means that orders placed over the weekend won’t ship out until Monday, at the earliest.
However, this is only for orders to actually be processed and shipped out. Once the package has been given off to the courier, they will still ship it while the order is in transit, even on weekends. Therefore, you shouldn’t experience any extra delays after the order has actually been shipped.
As far as delivery goes, it is possible for some orders to be delivered on weekends, depending on the shipping method used.
If not, your package will likely be delivered the following Monday.
What Shipping Company Does Nike Use?
According to Nike’s website, Nike may use the following couriers to ship your order:
According to most shoppers online, the vast majority of Nike orders seemed to be shipped either Fedex or UPS.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to request a specific shipping company, or influence the decision after the fact. However, the exact courier used may be influenced by your location and the shipping option you selected at checkout.
How Do I Track My Nike Order?
Tracking your Nike order is simple, and can be done in only a few steps.
The easiest thing to do is to visit Nike’s order tracking page, which you can access at Nike.com/orders.
Here, you’ll be able to find full details about your order status, as well as the courier that it’s shipped with.
Alternatively, Nike will send you an email when your order ships along with a tracking number.
Simply copy the tracking number into Google, and it will pull up an option to track it with the courier.
Click on the result, and it will bring up the tracking page for the courier they’ve chosen to ship with.
Note that if you ordered multiple items, it’s possible that Fedex shipped your order using multiple carriers. In these instances, you will have multiple tracking numbers to track your packages with, and the items may arrive at different times.
Where Does Nike Ship From?
Nike ships all orders from Nike.com out of their fulfilment center based in Memphis, Tennessee, in the United States.
According to Nike’s website, they no longer ship internationally, nor will they ship to any package forwarding services. While this is a common workaround to order products that are only sold in the USA, unfortunately it no longer works.
Therefore, if you live in Europe, Canada or any other country outside of the United States, you may need to purchase Nike products from a reseller, or from another marketplace such as StockX.
StockX ships about as quickly as Nike does, so you may not be missing out on a whole lot (other than higher prices, unfortunately.)
Although Nike can take as long as 12 business days to deliver, it’s possible for products to arrive much more quickly than that.
Several shipping options are available to speed things up, though these may come with higher shipping fees.
