Shipping - International
We try to minimize the shipping cost for you, but make sure that your package does arrive. We have found that shipping by mail is still the least expensive method of shipment.
Calculating Shipping: Our catalog will calculate basic shipping cost to many countries. Standard shipping for packages below 4 lbs (1.8kg) is by first class and above 4lbs it is by PMI (Priority Mail International).
Estimated Shipping: To see the shipping cost for your country, first, add some items to your cart. Next, click on "Estimate Shipping & Tax". Next enter your country, state or province, and your postal code. Then click on "Estimate Shipping & Tax" and you will see the value below.
Shipping Time: Most international packages shipped by first class mail seem to arrive in a reasonable amount of time - about a week to two weeks, from what customers have reported to us. However - for reasons we do not know - maybe customs, maybe our USPS (postal system), your countries postal system, who knows - sometimes a package may take much longer - sometimes up to a month or more. Two have arrived after three months. However, these instances are very rare when the large number of packages we ship to International addresses is considered.
Lost Packages: We accept responsibility for any packages that are lost. It is not practical to use postal insurance due to the long time and effort required to collect from USPS. If a package does not arrive within a reasonable amount of time - if you want - we will ship a second package and only ask that we be paid for it if both packages arrive.
Countries: Below there is a list of countries that the catalog can currently calculate shipping costs for. If your country is not list, please Email Us.
