Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Please note that the amounts listed in our shipping fee table are guidelines rather than exact charges, especially for international orders, and the actual charge depends on the weight of the parcel. We urge international customers to inquire in advance. The US Postal Service no longer ships anything by sea mail (formerly known as the "economy" rate). The "standard" rate referred to in our fee table refers to the "international first class" classification, which is applied to lower priority shipments. Delivery time varies; our estimate of 10 - 15 business days should not be understood literally.
