When will my order ship and what are my shipping charges?
Usually we ship within 3 days of receipt of your order unless it is peak season. If you have a rush for us to get your order out, please let us know. We will do our best.
Small orders under $50.00 ship most of the time by first class international mail for the least amount possible, usually it is $6-12.00. Charges are by weight so we cannot know before your order is sent. It may be necessary to bill you again after your order is packed in order to retrieve what is necessary to send your order. Orders over $50.00 and up to $150.00 ship wherever possible by international priority mail. If we can fit everything in the small packet, the charge is around $25.00. If your order is over 150.00, USUALLY we must ship by EXPRESS MAIL. This tracks and traces your order, and provides insurance. Cost is $40.00 to 65.00 in most cases, but if your order is very large and heavy, it can be more.
Please understand DUTY CHARGES are not part of postage. They are part of what your country levies as a tax to receive goods imported from another country. Duty is your responsibility and we will not have estimates for what charges will be---but if you contact your local Post Office, they will be able to help you. We have no control over duty charges. We declare value only as your cost of the goods purchased, the shipping fee you paid is NOT part of that. Sorry, we cannot label your package as a gift going overseas so that duty will not be charged. This is a form of smuggling and is illegal. Thank you so much for understanding.
