We ship orders internationally but at this time we don't ship to the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Libya, Philippines, Russia, Slovakia, Tanzania, Ukraine and Yemen.
Once your shipment leaves the United States and enters the destination country, it gets turned over to your local post office. You can track your international parcel through ParcelsApp.com. Please contact your local post office if you miss your post delivery, as we cannot control how your local post operates. Typically, after a couple of attempts to reach you regarding your shipment, your local post office may return your parcel to the sender.
Please note that all international orders are subject to fees for taxes & duties or VAT. You may be contacted by your local postal service or the courier service(Fedex or UPS) if a balance is owed. You will be responsible for these charges. Typically, your order will be on hold for 3 weeks. If you do not pay, your order will be returned to the sender.
We ship all of our domestic orders via USPS, UPS, or Fedex with economy and standard rates. Options for international include USPS International and DHL Express.
