We use USPS to ship your order and provide you with the lowest shipping prices available.

For our international customers:             

We ship the majority of our international shipments using a USPS international consolidator(Ascendia USA). The economy international shipping service usually arrives within 2-4 weeks and would be delivered by your local postal carriers. Priority orders usually arrive within 1-2 weeks. Every now and then an order can take a little longer to arrive. Most shipping delays are related to the receiving countries customs processing

There is no carrier insurance included in the economy shipping service. Other services include a minimum of $100 of insurance. A claim for lost package cannot be opened until at least 6 weeks has passed.

**Shipping during the COVID-19 Pandemic** - Delivery times have increased substantially during the pandemic because of the lack of transportation and travel restrictions. As of 1/1/2021, we are seeing delivery times ranging from 3/4 week to 2 months. Please use DHL if you are looking for a faster delivery time.

Not all shipment sent using the economy international shipping service include tracking. Please contact us at if you need to know if tracking is included with this service. 

Import duties and customs charges:

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what additional costs will be prior to buying.
