Important Shipping Information

During checkout, you will be presented with shipping costs; these are not the actual costs you are paying. We will adjust the shipping cost based on weight and destination after we prepared your orders. Your Credit Card will be charged after we calculate the shipping cost and adjusted your invoice total amount.

We recommend shipping via UPS because it provides better package tracking and guarantee.

We often ship orders via UPS instead of United States Postal Service whenever necessary.

We do not offer USPS First-Class Mail.
