We offer several shipping options, CHOOSE CAREFULLY:

Tracking and insurance is included, you pay no extra fees aside from your tax / vat. Fairly fast, reliable, trackable at each step.
[USPS Flat Rate] First Class 10 -35 days limited tracking, NO ADDITIONAL BROKERAGE CHARGES, only TAXES — $22.00 USD
This is first class mail, the slowest with limited tracking through customs and can take anywhere from 10 days up to 6+ weeks during the busy holiday shipping seasons. Cheap, but select at your own risk as it's not scanned through customs. Limited insurance

IMPORTANT: UPS and DHL are reliable but will include an extra BROKERAGE fee that must be paid by you on DELIVERY. SEE MORE BELOW**
REFUSING an order because of that fee will result in us only being able to refund you minus what shipping charges the carrier charges us. IT CAN BE SIGNIFICANT and result in zero funds available for refund.

While USPS is reported to have improved now, we cannot guarantee USPS transit time. Once it leaves our facility, it is literally and figuratively out of our hands.
IF you've chosen UPS, UPS will charge you fees upon delivery which we are not responsible for.
These fees are: Brokerage fees and VAT / Taxes which are 100% your responsibility.
If you choose USPS, they do not charge you Brokerage fees, only the regular taxes / VAT.

Our shipping carriers do not pick up packages from our facilities on weekends, or on postal holidays.
If you place an order after our order processing deadline, you may experience a delay between your shipping confirmation e-mail and the actual shipment of your order. The time-frame for the shipment method you selected will begin when the carrier picks it up for delivery.

Weekend Delivery We are unable to arrange weekend deliveries for UPS, USPS orders may arrive Saturdays.
All shipping and processing times listed on our website are in business days (Monday-Friday, excluding all national holidays). Some of our shipping carriers occasionally deliver orders sent via standard shipping on Saturdays, but this service cannot be requested or guaranteed.
Cancelling an order we've already shipped
Once a package leaves out facility, it's in the hands of the carrier, and we're not in control of when your order will reach you, they are. We do our best to use reliable shipping, but issues arise.
If the shipping is taking too long and you're thinking about canceling / having us intercept the package, here are the details for the process:
OPTION ONE: Send the package back to us at your cost once it reaches you and we will refund you the item cost MINUS any shipping costs not covered by your shipping fee once it arrives back it new condition.
OPTION TWO: Ask us to request an INTERCEPT. USPS will charge us $13.95 and any additional shipping, and we will deduct those costs as well as any additional shipping costs not covered by your initial shipping fee from the item once the carrier returns it to us..
IMPORTANT!! We charge a basic flat-rate shipping. We almost always pay more than that for shipping. We will charge you the difference between what you paid for shipping, and what it actually cost us so we aren't making a loss on the shipped cancelled order. Covering the additional shipping is a service we provide to our paying customers, and as much as we'd love to as a service to you, we simply can't take losses on transactions like these where a full refund is involved.
International Shipments Delivery time for international packages vary widely depending on Country, Customs, Carrier and Method of Shipment. We usually ship international orders within 24 hours.
Shipments outside of the U.S. may be subject to fees such as "import customs fees" which include Customs, Duties, Taxes, Brokerage Fees and other similar fees. These "fees" are typically collected by the shipping carrier in your area, and are not part of our shipping charges.
Please contact your local carriers and customs department to learn more about these fees. You, the importer, will be responsible for all "fees" which may be imposed by your country's customs laws including but not limited to duties, taxes, brokerage fees and other fees that may apply at the time package is delivered to you.
Please contact us for more information and an estimated time of arrival to your destination.
Or, if you would like to specify a carrier in particular, contact us in advance before we process and ship out your order.
