DOMESTIC SHIPPING RATES
we ship domestic orders USPS priority mail, INSURED & SIGNATURE REQUIRED.
if you do not want us to ship signature required, please note that at checkout. we will ship according to your wishes but know that if your package is lost, stolen or damaged, we cannot replace your order for free.
to determine transit times, use the USPS postage calculator shipping from los angeles 90026.
we will send you the tracking info from USPS.
we highly recommend you sign up for email or text updates from USPS for your package.
the post office seems to have recently changed its policy. they now only attempt delivery once. YOU have to request redelivery through the website. if you don’t sign up for the notifications, you will miss the window of opportunity & they will send your order back to me.
at that point you will have the option for a refund (minus shipping) or pay $15 for shipping again. this has the potential to be a lengthy & annoying process so please, get the tracking updates!
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RATES
we recommend international orders ship Global Express Guarantee (GXG) which costs around $100 and takes 1-3 days.
USPS postage calculator ships from los angeles 90027.
GXG is picked up in the states by USPS but delivered overseas by FedEx so it’s the best of both worlds.
GXG is more expensive than other USPS options but it is the only one that can be fully insured & always tracked outside the US.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
other international shipping options are
USPS PRIORITY EXPRESS for around $65 which takes 3-5 days
USPS PRIORITY for around $35 and takes 6-10 days..
while cheaper, these options aren’t always trackable or fully insurable.
consequently, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND using these services.
furthermore, lost packages will not be refunded or replaced for free. buyer beware.
3RD PARTY SHIPPING
we no longer support shipping from UPS, FEDEX or DHL.
USPS Global Express Guarantee (GXG) rates are competitive with the aforementioned shippers so there will be no financial loss to my customers.
also, by using GXG, we can get your order out within 24 hrs. the 3rd parties create too many delays.
