Shipping

:: Update ::
 
Due to the unreliability of USPS, I will be shipping via FedEx for Domestic orders from now on. 

In order for me to be able to run my small business successfully, I need to ensure that my shipments will be delivered and USPS cannot guarantee this within the US. International Shipments will not be affected.


Domestic Shipments
All shipments within the US will ship via FedEx with Indirect or Direct Signature required dependent on package value. Shipments with FedEx will be delivered in 2-3 business days once shipped.


International Shipments
International Shipments will still be shipped with USPS until I fully Integrate over to FedEx for all shipments. FedEx charges brokerage fees for International shipments but your package is guaranteed to be delivered within a week once shipped.

Customs and Duties
Customs and Duties are various taxes and fees imposed by your own country. US Sellers have no control over customs charges and do not benefit from them or receive any of the money from them. Before you make your purchase, you should acquaint yourself with your country’s import laws. This is also a good resource to check what you can be charged by your country: Duty Calculator

"In general, import duty is a tax that the importer has to pay to bring foreign goods into his or her country. Import VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax charged on imported goods and services. 

Duty and VAT are calculated as a percentage of the value of the imported goods, consisting of the product value and the freight & insurance costs. 

For importing into the UK, duty and VAT are normally due when a minimum value threshold of £15 is reached. Duty is not paid on consignments shipped within the EU. 

Import duty rates vary depending on the type of goods; many goods are duty free. Relief from duty and VAT may apply in special cases. Also, in some cases additional duties may be charged, depending of the country of manufacture of the goods”

Purchases from my site will not be marked as gifts. In the US falsifying of customs forms comes with a potential 10K fine AND the possible loss of the ability to continue to conduct business in the US. Please do not purchase if you are not comfortable with these terms.


Shipment Notifications
Once your order has shipped, I will provide a tracking number in your account status and you will also receive an email notification on your changed shipment status. Please check your Junk/Bulk Folder if you do not receive a confirmation in your inbox.
