What does next day shipping mean?
If I make a purchase today (friday the 24th) will it arrive on monday (the 27th?) Or will it ship the next business day but not necessarily arrive soon? Any help is greatly appreciated!

"Next day shipping" means that your order will ship on the next business day after the company receives it; after it's been boxed and is ready to ship. It does NOT mean that you will receive your order the next day after you place it.

Usually it means it will be shipped the next business day. Depending how far it travels it could be a few days to a week or longer. Next day doesn't mean it's express or over night shipping - which may arrive the following day.

Who knows? It varies. There's no way of telling.

It means it will be dispatched on the next working day usually.

Ask the shipper whether the ship items on Saturday, or only weekdays. In most cases, it means AFTER the weekend if you made the transaction on a Friday..

Next day shipping usually means the item will ship on the next business day. That's Monday, the 27th. Shipping doesn't happen on weekends.

Depends on the terminology and viewpoint of the source (seller, company ordered from).
Many times it means the item is in stock (unless it is not) and will leave the shipping department the next business day.
Or it could mean that the item might (stress word "MIGHT") arrive the next business day, depending on which shipping company is used. Or not.
Call shipper for verification.Source(s): If my answer seems to have no definite information, it is from a long learning curve.
