How Netflix Shipping Works
Note: DVDs and the Queue feature are only available in the US.
Once you create a list of DVD or Blu-ray movies or TV shows you want to see, we ship them to the address you gave us via US Postal Service First Class Mail.
Where does Netflix ship?
Netflix ships to all 50 states and U.S. Territories, including Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Federated Islands of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, and the Virgin Islands. We also ship to APO, FPO, and DPO addresses. Due to the distance of these locations from our distribution centers, delivery times may take several additional days.
How do you decide which DVD to ship?
We ship discs in the order they appear in Your Queue. You can change the order, add titles, or remove titles any time.
If the first title in your queue isn’t available, we’ll send the next available title instead.
How long does it take to ship?
Most of our customers receive next day delivery, but shipping can sometimes take up to three business days. If a disc hasn't arrived and it's been three or more days, please report it as lost here.
What do I do after I've watched my DVD?
When you’re done with a title, simply put it back in the red envelope it came in, re-seal it, and put it back in the mail. As soon as we get it back, we’ll send the next movie from Your Queue.
When does Netflix ship?
Netflix generally processes shipments Monday through Saturday, excluding holidays. When we check in a return, we automatically send an e-mail to let you know we received your disc. We also send you an e-mail letting you know when we have shipped your next disc (generally the same day we process your return).
