USPS Standard International Shipping
USPS standard is only $20.00 and is not trackable except departure and arrival, and not insured.* (So if the package is lost, stolen, or takes a long time to reach you, it is your responsibility.) Please note that it could take up to 3 months for a package to arrive depending on the country it is going to with this method. We have no way to control how long it takes for it to reach its destination nor do we have the ability to track the package once it leaves the country.
*Note: For some countries USPS has a $50.00 shipping option. This is case by case and always changing. If this is the case for your country
we will let you know. Some countries that are $50 shipping include: Nigeria, South Africa, Cyprus, Azerbaijan
FedEx is expensive, but trackable, insured and guaranteed to deliver within 5-7 days. If the package is lost you are not responsible.
Here is more detailed information for you to consider:
International postage/handling through United States Postal Service USPS is $20.00
This is a good service and is generally reliable if you live in a country which has a reliable postal service, however, you only get a tracking number which only shows the date your products were shipped.
USPS International PRIORITY MAIL ($50.00 instead of $20.00)
If you are in other countries where the package can take, as much as 2 months to arrive, for example to South Africa, you can contact us directly and request this.
You would have to place this order with us in person, or request a quote to be paid so we can manually make that change for you.
USPS International PRIORITY mail will likely help the package to arrive in 2-3 weeks.
You do not need to sign for your package. We obtain a tracking number which records the date that your order is shipped and the day that it is delivered to you.
Please note that this does not include postal insurance and there is no way to recover a lost package. This service is very reliable however we cannot be held responsible for delays due to the vagaries of the postal system or delays due to Customs.
FedEx is more expensive (average cost $150) but it offers the following benefits –
- Detailed Tracking Information which you may access
- Products Protected with Insurance
- Faster Delivery (3-5 days for economy)
- Delivery Guaranteed
This means that if your package is not delivered, it is covered by insurance and FedEx would refund your shipping cost and the cost of your lost products. If you do not live in a country where the postal service is reliable and secure, we strongly urge you to use FEDEX International.
If your package weighs more than 3 pounds, the cost may be higher. Orders usually take 5 – 8 days to arrive.
If you need any further information or help, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
The choice is yours, but please remember:
If you choose USPS for International Shipping and your package goes astray:
- We cannot be held responsible
- We will not bear the cost of replacing your lost products
- We will not refund your shipping cost.
* We cannot be held responsible for any customs charges – USPS, FedEx, or UPS.
