Delivery may take up to 3 weeks but often takes less than 10 days. Local duties and taxes may be due upon delivery, determined by the rates of each receiving country.
Canada: An additional shipping method through USPS (First-Class MailŪ International) is available for shipments to Canada weighing less than 4lb, including the packaging, for a flat rate of $16. Small orders will be offered this method in addition to Priority Mail International. Local duties and taxes will be due upon delivery, according to Canadian policy. Delivery time for this method varies and will likely take longer than Priority Mail International shipments. Please be patient if you select this method.
