Shipping is one of the things i get asked the most about (and with good reason!) so I will take a moment to answer some of the things that usually come up when speaking with other sisters about it:
First, do you ship internationally?
YES! and actually the bulk of my orders are international. I have always used the USPS first class International shipping, which has worked great for some countries (and not so great for others)
Please note that when using the FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL option, your package might be tracked all the way to your door, or it might be not, in my experience countries like Canada, Uk, Singapore, Australia, Belgium and Switzerland receive packages just fine using this method, the package is usually tracked after it leaves the U.S. and when it arrives at the country of destination, and from there it can happen to be updated or not, but the package usually arrives within 8 to 15 days on most cases, and on rare cases it can be delayed and arrive in 21 days.
Now The Usps Has a Delivery Confirmation International service that includes certain countries that are guaranteed to be tracked when using the FIRST CLASS PACKAGE INTERNATIONAL SERVICE, the countries included in this program are:
- Great Britain and Northern Ireland
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- Serbia, Republic of
- Slovak Republic (Slovakia)
So when shipping to these countries you can use the FIRST CLASS PACKAGE INTERNATIONAL SERVICE and your package should be tracked all the way to your door.
What about in the U.S.?
Shipping in the U.S. is now free on all orders, once the packages ship it should reach you between 3 - 5 business days.
What about lost packages?
Lost or damaged cases are treated on a case by case basis, since they are few and far in between, I believe a personal conversation with the customer is the best way to asses the options to be taken when a package is taking longer than usual to arrive, or when it has in fact been lost.
What is the average shipping time to most international locations?
For domestic orders, 3 to 5 days after the package has shipped.
And for international orders, it depends on the country,
Canada, The Uk, Singapore have the fastest shipping times, usually ranging between 7-10 days, other locations can take a little longer and up to 21 days.
