Domestic shipping charges are calculated based on the weight of the items, not the value of the order. The default shipping option is "Most Economical" which automatically calculates the most affordable shipping cost by comparing Priority Mail from the Postal Service versus Ground rates from Fedex, UPS, and DHL. Customers may specify Priority Mail (takes 3-8 days) or Ground Shipping (takes 1-5 business days depending on location). For business accounts, we can bill to your shipping account number and waive the shipping charge.
Our international shipping charges are also based on the weight for the order. Any customs, taxes, or duties are the responsibility of the international customer. More information for orders shipped outside of the United States is available below.
Our goal is to have our customers' orders processed and shipped by the second business day, but most orders ship out by the next business day.
For delivery by a certain date, we recommend the Fastest, 2nd Day Air, or Ground shipping. For more assistance, please call customer service at 650-583-1044. Priority Mail which takes 3 to 8 days does not have firm delivery times.

Upon receiving the confirmation for the order and shipping charges, we will then process and ship the order. Any customs, taxes, or duties are the responsibility of the international customer.
For customers in Canada, orders shipped with the "Most Economical" option will be sent Airmail Letter Post which takes approximately 4-7 days if there are no customs delays, but is less expensive than the Global Express option. Packages shipped this way do not have tracking information whereas the Global Express packages do.
A packing slip without any pricing information is automatically included instead of an invoice when the "bill to" person is different from the "ship to" person or if there is a gift message.
