Foreign Orders

This is the correct page if your goods will be sent to a destination outside of the United States. If not, please check out the Domestic Order page.



We love our Foreign Customers, but foreign orders are expensive for us to process. Some small orders that require many calculations and paper-work that can cost us many extra dollars to process which we must pass on to you.

Foreign shipping charges are based on the actual cost of shipping and insurance, plus a small handling fee. In order to keep the cost to you as low as possible, we have discontinued the use of Shipping Tables. If you need an estimate please call or send email. For explaination of our shipping strategy and policy please go HERE.

Generally Your Choices for Shipping include:

Global EMS - Usually only costs a few dollars more than Air Parcel Post. Takes a few days.

Air Parcel Post (our default method) Takes about a week.

FEDEX - if we use your account number. Two or three days. Very, very expensive.

Surface Mail. Takes several months. No insurance available.

Important Note: FEDEX and UPS are extremely expensive, please be prepared to spend $80 or more for delivery of a very small package. We recommend you have us ship to a freight broker here in the USA.

We no longer quote shipping charges, but can give you an estimate, or, you can estimate shipping costs yourself by going to the USPS Website. Most of the time your order will be sent Air Parcel Post or Global EMS.


Important Note: We hate to pay shipping charges as much as you do. If we charge fifty dollars to ship something to you, it means we have to pay to turn around and pay the carrier fifty dollars for his services. For more information on shipping charges, please go HERE.

If you have any other questions regarding how we do stuff, please read our policy page. This includes information on Returns, Collect Phone calls, shipping boxes, or anything else people have asked about over the years.

Almost all of the fraud problems we have come from foreign orders or foreign persons using stolen credit card information. We investigate all suspicious credit card activity or requests. We do not process "gifts" or rush orders to any foreign account. We often warn others in the trade about attempted frauds.
