Frequently Asked Questions

How does the program work?
Orders are processed through Keystone / NTP and are shipped via UPS (unless oversized, when the part will ship truck freight) to your retail consumer. Keystone bills you for the cost of the part and shipping.

Keystone’s name does not appear on the packing slip, the package label, or the return form.  The return forms only lists an anonymous ‘Product Returns’ address and the label displays ‘Fulfillment Center’.

What shipping options are available?
UPS Ground, 3-Day Select, 2nd Day Air, and Next Day Air. LTL available on oversized parts for your convenience. Or you may use your own UPS account or take advantage of our flat rate shipping option. USPS and FedEx are available options as well. 

How do I know when an item is not shipped?
Keystone emails a cancellation file if the order is cancelled at the warehouse level.
