Frequently Asked Questions and Help Center

How much will shipping cost, how do you mail your packages, and how long will it take to get to me?

Last Updated: Mar 14, 2017 09:04AM PDT
Carriers we use: For most orders you will have a choice between shipping USPS or FedEx.

Costs: Shipping costs vary depending on what you are ordering and where the package is being shipped to.  You can view the shipping charges for your order in your shopping cart before you purchase and finalize your order.  All costs are shown in US dollars. 

We are currently offering free 3 day FedEx Express Saver to addresses in the Continental U.S. Continental US is defined as all the 48 contiguous US states, which excludes Hawaii and Alaska. We are only offering Free Shipping on the places that FedEx Express Saver delivers to - which does NOT include Hawaii, Alaska, APO address, or PO Boxes.  $100 of product must be in your cart, which does not include any taxes.

How long until my order leaves your warehouse? We strive to ship your order within 1-4 business days of placing your order. Most days we are moving super-fast and ship the same day. Sometimes, during busy times, it may take a little longer.  You will receive an email with your tracking information once your order has been shipped. 

How long will the order be in transit? USPS and FedEx give estimates for transit time.  Most tracking information will include an expected delivery date, which is not a guaranteed delivery date – just an estimated delivery time.    Please know that FedEx does not ship on weekends or holidays.

I’m outside the US – what can I expect? Duties/taxes/VAT are taxes levied on imports by the customs authorities of your country to raise revenue.   It is not a shipping charge, but it is a tax on the items purchased. Whether your local government decides to charge you extra for duties, taxes or any other additional customs charges is entirely done at their discretion.  Some international customers report that they have been charged extra, and some report that they do not have to pay extra.  How much extra seems to depend on where you live and what/how much you order. We have no control over whether your local customs officials charge you extra, and as such we bear no responsibly for these charges – you, the recipient, will need to pay them. FedEx or your local Post Office may try to call you to collect duty/VAT over the phone before they deliver your package, or they may send you a bill for the duty/VAT after they deliver your package. 

*Please note that ONLY the FedEx Int'l Economy option for Canadian destinations will include the duty/tax fees.
