ALL Domestic Retail Orders to addresses in the UNITED STATES will qualify for free shipping. Shipping will be via USPS Media or First Class Mail, at our discretion. Other services such as Priority and Express Mail are also available, but will be charged at normal rates.
First Class Package: Speedy delivery service for lighter shipments.
Priority Mail: Offers a 2-3 day service to most domestic destinations.
Express Mail: Next day delivery to many destinations, some before 12 noon. Less accessible areas will receive a second day service. If in doubt you can check on the USPS Web site - www.usps.com
Media Mail: Special economical service for
Books, CDs & DVDs.
Normal delivery times are 4-8 days but the service can be very slow at times and is definitely not recommended for customers outside of the lower 48.
First-Class Mail International: Airmail service for shipments up to 4 lbs in weight. Delivery times are normally around 6-14 days, but can be up to 3-4 weeks or even longer on occasion.
Priority Mail International: Airmail delivery for shipments over 4 lbs in weight. Delivery times are normally around 6-14 days, but can be up to 3-4 weeks or even longer on occasion.
Express Mail International (EMS): High speed service for those very urgent shipments. Items leave the US on day of shipment. Delivery times are normally 3-7 working days.
(Please note that International shipments may also be liable for customs duty, sales or other import taxes. We are not responsible for these charges and are unable to provide any estimate as to their likely amount - it is the responsibility of the recipient to pay them to the carrier at time of delivery. Also, customs clearance delays can sometimes lead to protracted shipping times).
APO / FPO: To qualify, destination country must be USA. Select from the available range of services. If you use another destination country, then you will be charged the normal international rates to that country.
Shipping charges are supplied direct to our site by the United States Postal Service. We also make a small additional charge to cover the direct costs of packing and handling, but this is kept to a minimum. Unlike Amazon and others, we do combine shipping, and don't charge on a per item basis. We do not make any profits from the operation of our shipping department.
We undertake to ship your order within 2 working days of receipt. Choice of a faster service, such as Express, will not affect this time, but will insure that USPS will get your order to you more quickly.
