Shipping for Alaska, Hawaii and US Possessions: The additional cost of standard shipping outside of the contiguous 48 states is due to using either FedEx Ground or USPS Priority Mail. We use these shipping methods to ensure that orders are received within the 4 - 8 business day delivery window. Shipping methods other than FedEx Ground or USPS Priority Mail resulted in much longer delivery times – in some cases, up of 4 weeks – that were unacceptable to most of our customers. For this reason, FedEx Ground and USPS Priority Mail have become our delivery methods of choice for Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and other US possessions.

Canada: We now ship to Canada via FedEx. For orders under $75 USD, shipping charges are a flat rate fee of $20 USD plus import duty and taxes. For orders over $75 USD, shipping charges are 20% of the subtotal of the order plus import duty and taxes. The import charges (approximately 12-13% of the subtotal of your order) will be collected by FedEx at the time of delivery.

Order Processing Time for Economy and Standard Delivery Orders

The Economy and Standard delivery times shown in the previous table reflect the business days the order spends in actual transit from our fulfillment center to the delivery address - order processing time is not included.

Additionally, the order processing time for Economy and Standard delivery orders may be longer during peak holiday seasons, such as Mother's Day or Christmas, or immediately after a popular promotion. If you have questions concerning when your Economy or Standard order will be shipped from our fulfillment center, please email Customer Service at

FedEx ships Economy packages to a post office near your address and the U.S. Postal Service then delivers them. If you would prefer not to have the USPS deliver your orders, please choose our Standard shipping option.
