Frequently Asked Questions About Orders

What do I do if I receive a processing error for my payment?

Failed Authorizations and Payment Declines

You may need to contact your financial institution for assistance on declined payments. You are always welcome to submit an alternate payment method for your order if you are unable to resolve the payment issue with your financial institution in a timely manner.

Common reasons for failed payment authorizations:

  • The billing address you are providing does not match what your financial institution has on file.
  • The security code CID/CVV is incorrect for the credit card number you have provided.
  • All lines to your financial institution could be temporarily busy.
  • Daily withdrawal or purchase limits.
  • Insufficient funds.

Note: Some financial institutions have been known to hold these authorizations for 7-10 business days.

Why does my order say “Error. There was a problem processing your payment. Please try again”?

At the time an order is placed, our system first verifies the funds are available, then validates the credit card information you submitted. If the entered information fails to coincide with what is on file for the credit card, our security system will deny the order and credit the amount back. The verified funds will be “Pre-Auth” on your account. Your credit card company/bank will usually release the funds back to your account within the same day. The pending dollar will drop off your account usually in a couple days. Regrettably, we have no access to the reason why the credit card information doesn't coincide.

Please make sure the following information is entered correctly on the checkout page when placing the order:

  • Credit or Debit Card number.
  • The card expiration date.
  • The CID number.
  • The exact Name and Billing Address as it is printed on your Credit Card statement.

Errors in any of this information will cause the order to be rejected.

Please contact your credit card institution for information.

Why do you need my phone number during checkout?

O'Reilly uses your phone number as a reference for all warranties. Your phone number used during checkout will not be released to any third parties. For more information, please visit our Privacy Policy page.

Why might I pay more or less at my local store than the online total check out amount?

Because actual pricing and sales tax costs vary slightly from location to location and because of local specials and discounts, your final check out total shown here may not reflect the actual amount you will pay when you check out at your local store. Rest assured, we are doing our best to be accurate. However, when shopping at one of our stores, it will be necessary for you to pay the price determined at the time you check out.

Can I pay by check? Can I order items COD?

The Online Store only accepts major credit cards and O'Reilly Auto gift cards as payment. Any of our 4800 store locations will also gladly accept cash and checks.

Why am I being charged sales tax?

O’Reilly Auto Parts is required to collect taxes in all states where we have a physical presence. We are also required to calculate your taxes based on where your order is being shipped to. As a result, if we have a physical presence in the state we are shipping your order to, we are required by law to charge all applicable state and local taxes.

Shipping & Delivery

Most orders placed at process within 2 days. All items are shipped from the nearest stocking Distribution Center. Items are not available to ship from local stores. The following options may be available : Standard Ground, Priority or Expedited; you’ll be given all available shipping options at checkout. It is possible—depending on the size of your order—that your items could come in multiple packages from multiple locations.

Next Day Shipping:
Most orders placed before 12 pm local time (varies per shipping destination) qualify for Next Day delivery. This may change based on the location of items ordered, where later order times may qualify. All delivery dates are estimated based on company averages, which may change based on weather, weight, warehouse availability, shipping address, and geographic limitations. Item cancellations that bring an order total below the $35 minimum and special order items may also impact next day eligibility and cost. All final shipping fees and arrival times are reported at checkout.

Missing Orders

My order should have been here by now. How can I be sure it isn’t lost or stolen?

Missing orders, missing parts, wrong parts or damaged packages must be reported to O'Reilly Auto Parts within 48 hours of the shipping carrier confirming that the order was delivered.

First, check the tracking number included in your confirmation email. You can also log into, select “My Account” and then “My Orders” for this information. Once you have confirmed the delivery was completed, check with everyone in your household to make sure someone else didn’t receive the package. Look behind any bushes or furniture near the delivery location, and if necessary, check with your neighbors.

If you still haven’t located the package, filing a stolen property report with your local police is a good idea. You may want to check with your insurance company about renters’ or home owners’ coverage.

Next, contact O’Reilly Auto Parts/Online Order Support by phone, chat or email. We will note on the order record that the delivered package is missing or possibly stolen from the location and file a Missing Package Report on your behalf with the shipping carrier.

The security of deliveries becomes the responsibility of the customer once the order reaches the addressed location. Neither UPS, FedEx nor O’Reilly Auto Parts is responsible to replace product that is missing or stolen from the delivery location. Only after UPS and FedEx investigates and accepts the claim as mis-delivered can a refund be considered.

Buying the Right Part

At O'Reilly Auto Parts, we are concerned about your safety and want to prevent damage to your vehicle. With today's vehicles, purchasing and installing auto parts can be a complicated process. We understand this. That is why we have Professional Parts People and powerful search software to help you through the process. While we always do our best to ensure we provide you with accurate and up-to-date part information, human and/or software errors sometimes occur. These errors may cause an incorrect part to be displayed as the result of a part search.

For these reasons and more, you must always do, at a minimum, the following 4 steps to help ensure that the part you buy is the correct one for your repair project.

  1. Make sure ALL of the vehicle information you provide is correct. This includes the vehicles you define and any questions that you may answer on our web site. Read and understand ALL of the informational checkmarks listed with each part. If there are codes or statements that do not match your vehicle, do not buy the part. If there is information you do not understand, contact one of our team members at your local store and find out what it means.
  2. If you have no local store, please feel free to contact one of our Customer Service team members. See our Contact Us (URL /contact-us) page for details on contacting Customer Service.
  3. Compare Web site photos with your old part. If photos of the item you are purchasing are available on our Web site and if they are not labeled as "representative" photos, compare them with the old part and make sure they match.
  4. When the part arrives compare it with the old part. If for any reason it does not appear to be the correct part, contact us to confirm that it is the correct part before installing it

Using these steps will assist you in selecting the correct part to get the job done right. Remember that, as with any large, powerful and complex system, failure to select the right part for your vehicle may result in damage to your vehicle, serious injury or death. Do not risk it. If in doubt, get answers from one of our friendly and helpful O'Reilly team members.

What is a core charge?

Some products have a core charge associated with them. A core is some portion of a part that can be recycled or reused by the manufacturer. Doing this saves the manufacturer money and helps our environment. For this reason a product with a core has an additional charge associated with it. If the old part is returned in reusable condition (either to one of our stores or shipped back to our online store), the core charge will be credited back to the card used to purchase the part. Please note: It is the customer's responsibility to pay any shipping cost associated with shipping a core back to the O'Reilly Online Store. There is no shipping charge if you take the old part back to one of our stores.

Why can't I find replacement parts for my early model vehicle online?

Availability of electronic catalog data for early model vehicles is limited at this time. O'Reilly Auto Parts strives to provide the most up-to-date and accurate listings possible. Please visit your local O'Reilly Auto Parts store for more detailed part inquiries.

Why aren't there images and descriptions for some of your parts?

O'Reilly is constantly working with our vendors to improve your online shopping experience by providing more detailed descriptions and images for our products. Please call or visit your local O'Reilly Auto Parts store for more details.

Our site works on all current browsers in Windows 7+, Mac OSX, Android, Windows Mobile specifically:

Why can't I find replacement parts for my motorcycle, ATV, or watercraft online?

Unfortunately, O'Reilly Auto Parts does not have electronic catalog data for motorcycle, ATV, or watercraft at this time. Please contact your local store and ask a Professional Parts Person to check the paper catalogs for your application.

Installation Instructions

Because of the variety and complexity of vehicles available today, we are unable to provide detailed installation instructions for your part. We do have vehicle repair manuals available for purchase and online services to assist you. Additionally, our manufacturers sometimes provide limited instructions with the parts we sell. We highly recommend that you take advantage of these resources when working on your vehicle. If you are ever unsure of the correct or safest way to install a part, we recommend you seek help from a licensed, professional installer.

Failure to install a part correctly may result in damage to your vehicle, serious injury or death. Do not risk it. If you do not know how to install a part, get answers from a licensed, professional installer or have them install the part for you.
