Several countries are enabled in our checkout process, but if your country is not listed in the drop down menus on the billing address page, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and we'll send you a quote for shipping our product to you, wherever you are.
Please note that we typically send our packages via the US Postal Service. When shipping internationally, they transfer the package to the recipient country's postal service to be processed through customs. The customs process varies widely from country to country and we are unable to track the package during this time.
Please note that your order may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country, and you will be responsible for paying all additional charges for customs clearance. You can contact your local customs office for further information. Although your privacy is important to us, please be advised that international shipments may be opened and inspected by customs authorities.
If you live in New York or North Carolina, you may be charged sales tax on specific items.
