SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
We are proud to offer shipping via the United States Postal Service to more than 100 different countries. Delivery times may vary depending on the destination. Please be advised that tracking information is not available on international shipments. Shipments will normally be made within 2 business days after receipt of a purchase order by 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. It is the customer’s responsibility to provide accurate and complete shipping information. Failure to provide accurate and complete shipping information could potentially cause an item to be returned. Items returned for this reason will not be eligible for a refund. Items reshipped for this reason may incur additional shipping fees.
A shipping and handling charge of US$19.99 will be applied to orders up to US$100. Orders that exceed US$100 will ship FREE via standard delivery Monday through Friday. Some purchases for delivery to international destinations in certain countries may potentially be lost in transit and/or experience delivery times that may exceed our original delivery estimation. USPS does not guarantee delivery in Ukraine, Italy, Portugal, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Turkey, Cyprus, and the countries of the Middle East. Therefore, we apologize as refunds or replacement packages will not be issued for purchases which are lost in transit. We highly advise to take this into consideration before purchasing.
Orders for international delivery may be subject to VAT and duty once the order reaches your country. It is the customer’s responsibility if these types of charges are applied. If incurred, VAT and duty must be paid before your package will clear customs. We cannot make adjustments to your order to avoid these charges. When customs clearance procedures are required, this can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. Orders refused for delivery due to failure and/or refusal to pay VAT or duty charges are not eligible for a refund.Back to Top
