We use FedEx International to ship all International Orders and offer a flat fee for this shipping method. The international delivery timing differs from country to country. Usually packages are in flight for 1 to 3 days for most locations. We do not charge extra taxes or other fees for orders shipped to international destinations. However, please be sure to contact your local and customs authorities to learn about any fees, taxes, charges or regulations they may apply, when importing a product, before ordering the product online. If for any reason, the product is not allowed in the country and is sent back to us, we will issue a full refund (excluding the shipping and handling charges) towards the credit card account used to make your purchase upon receiving and processing the product at our shipping facility. We do not charge restocking fees except as set forth below. However, if the product was held in the country of destination and neither delivered, nor returned to us due to customs restrictions or legal issues, no refund will be issued. Please be sure to check with your local customs agency before ordering.
All domestic shipping rates are generated automatically by FedEx and may vary from location to location. International orders will be shipped via FedEx International delivery service for a flat fee based on specific country location. You will be able to review the shipping rates before your order is completed and the payment is applied.
