This page outlines our shipping and return/exchange policies. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Order & Shipping Confirmation
You will receive an email confirmation once your order has been successfully placed.
We will process and ship your order in 1 to 2 business days. Once your order is prepared for shipment you will receive a shipping confirmation email with your tracking information.
Shipping is free in the U.S. including Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. Territories. We use USPS Priority Mail which usually takes 1 to 3 business days.
We do not currently offer expedited/overnight shipping.
We currently ship to Canada and the United Kingdom and are working on expanding to other countries soon. Thank you for your patience as we expand our international presence.
Please note that items shipped internationally from the United States may require additional delivery time because of increased security at border crossing points.
- USPS First Class International: USPS does not guarantee delivery dates or times, however, deliveries generally take between 7–21 days.
- USPS Priority International: 6-10 business days.
Import Duties, Taxes, and Charges
Import duties, taxes, and charges (including value-added tax or VAT) are NOT included in the item price or shipping cost. As the international customer and importer of record, the charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what, if any, additional costs will be charged prior to buying.
Orders are shipped via USPS to the Canada Post which handles final delivery of the package. We offer both USPS First Class International and USPS Priority International. You can select your preferred shipping method (which also lists the price) at checkout.

- For orders under 4 lbs, we ship using USPS First Class International
- For orders that are 4 lbs and over, we ship using USPS Priority International
UK Customs Charges: UK Customers, please note that customs charges may be applied to your shipment by HM Revenue & Customs (import fee) and Royal Mail (handling fee).
Royal Mail provides several options for payment and they will inform you of the options available and the amounts payable when they contact you. A postcard or letter is usually delivered to your address, detailing the amount due and the options available for payment. Once payment has been made, the package may be collected from the post office or if you have paid online/by phone you can arrange for it to be delivered. Details of the charges, including the Royal Mail or Parcelforce Worldwide handling fee, will be shown separately on a label affixed to the package.
