We offer reduced flat rate shipping for orders within the contiguous United States. Pricing is based on weight and is often priced below direct carrier rates. For all other orders, we offer several shipping options on checkout such as USPS First Class, Priority Mail and FedEx delivery options. Upgraded shipping options only affect the carrier shipping speed, it does not affect our processing time. Please note that we are not responsible for import tax on international orders and cannot change customs declarations or amounts.
