General Information about International Shipping to the EU
We currently can ship orders to all of the EU, except Italy, utilizing the 2 USPS International shipping methods, outlined below. Our business days are Monday-Friday and do not include Saturdays, Sundays or standard US or EU holidays. *Please note that we cannot be responsible for packages delayed by customs. If you feel your item has been delayed or is taking longer than it should...contact your local Customs Office. Delivery times are generally very accurate but are not guaranteed.
All orders shipping to EU Countries will ship via USPS either Priority Mail or First Class Mail. Packages are usually delivered within the time frames specified below. We cannot be responsible for any delays caused by customs clearance. Delivery times are NOT guaranteed. All International orders must be handled by our California warehouse, therefore we have an added handling fee in the shipping charges. Furthermore, International orders shipping USPS First Class Mail will not have location-to-location tracking information as USPS Priority Mail will have. Please use the following chart when calculating your required delivery date:
THESE VALUES OVERRIDE ANY DELIVERY DATE OPTIONS EBAY MAY DISPLAY IN THEIR SHIPPING SELECTION BOX. PLEASE ONLY REFERENCE THESE VALUES WHEN SELECTING YOUR SHIPPING METHOD.
*USPS Express Mail option only available upon request and will be twice the amount of the USPS Priority Mail shipping amount
To view the shipping charges on any item simply click on the Shipping & Payments tab in the listing itself, and select your shipping country from the pull-down menu. We will combine shipping once you individually checkout (without actually paying) for each item.
VAT and Import Duties
All pricing in our eBay Store is in US dollars and DOES NOT include Duty or VAT in the price of the goods. Your order will have VAT and possibly duty due upon delivery and before your order will be cleared through customs. This means you will be charged for VAT and / or possibly Duty in order to take possession of your package.
