UPS Ground

UPS Ground shipments are given special consideration that takes into account the UPS delivery guarantee for UPS Ground. Our shipping system takes your location into consideration and gives you the transit time for UPS Ground in the shipping options. If you are in a 1 day delivery zone for UPS Ground, our system will not present UPS 2nd Day Air as an option. Firstly because it will still arrive the next day and secondly because of the price premium for 2nd Day Air. Therefore our system will only quote UPS Ground. It will quote UPS Next Day Air since delivery time for Next Day Air is before 10:30 am. Ground can be delivered anytime up to 6 or 7 pm.

International Shipments

We ship worldwide. Our international customers have multiple shipping options to suit their needs. The most economical method is First Class Airmail (up to 4 pounds). Please note that Priority Air Mail and First Class Air Mail do not have tracking. Express Mail (EMS) does have tracking.

Please note that for international orders your country's local customs may levy a customs charge. This is beyond our control and is due to policy in your local country.

Your Tracking Number is E-Mailed to you at the end of the day and is also uploaded to your online account.
