Make sure your ADDRESS IS CORRECT AND COMPLETE. If your package arrives at someone else’s address because you gave us an incorrect address, we are NOT responsible for replacing your lost package. If we receive the package returned to us, you are responsible for the second shipping charge and will be billed before we can reship your package to the correct address. If we do not receive the package returned to us, you may place another order.
If you have had difficulty receiving packages in the past, you may want to upgrade to USPS Priority Mail, which offers you claim protection if your package goes missing. This protection is not offered with most of our standard services.

UPS Worldwide Economy is the most economic service, and it is reliable. We ship your package to their facility in New York, USA, where they then forward it to your destination country. Then they pass the parcel to your local post or other third party for distribution. Tracking does not begin when your package leaves our facility. It begins once it departs the NY facility, which is usually 2-5 days after we process your order. If your tracking number does not show any movement on your package, please be patient. Your package is most certainly on it’s way. If you want more detailed tracking, you may upgrade your shipping service.
On average, UPS Worldwide Economy takes 5-12 days, UPS Worldwide Expedited takes 2-5 days, USPS First Class takes 7-21 days, and USPS Priority takes 6-10 days for packages to arrive at their final destination. HOWEVER, sometimes these services can have delays, and we have experienced on rare occasions it can take 8 weeks or longer, depending on your country and your customs office. Be patient and please do not leave negative or neutral feedback without first contacting us to resolve the issue. We understand you need to be protected, and we want you to feel safe shopping with us. Please allow ample time for mail to arrive before you take action. Thank you!
International customers may have to pay duty and/or VAT taxes upon receipt of the item. We will do our best to ensure that you do not incur duty, but we are not responsible for any taxation that you may incur.
