Orders sent outside the USA will be shipped via airmail unless otherwise requested. Postage will be charged to your credit card based on the actual cost of sending the box.
The following rates are printed for general reference only, to give you an idea how much it will cost. Your actual cost might vary slighly up or down, depending on the weight of the contents.
The above rates are estimates for regular jewel box CDs. You are welcome to order any mixture of formats at one time (LPs, books, videos, etc.), but it's pretty much impossible to provide any outline of what the shipping costs will be due to the potential variance in weights. You will be charged based on actual cost.
* up to $35.00 depending on country
You can request surface mail shipping instead of airmail, if you would like to save on shipping costs and don't mind waiting longer for your order. Please use the comments box on the order form to request this. Surface mail can work out to be about 50% of airmail costs; however the minimum shipping cost for foreign orders is still $4.50 for the first item. Surface mail should take about 4 weeks to most locations, but up to 8 to 12 weeks is also possible.
FOREIGN ORDERS LIABILITY & INSURANCE
Orders sent via US mail either by air or surface are sent at the recipients risk. The US Post Office does not offer any form of tracking for international mail. PLEASE NOTE: parcels with insurance are required by USPS to be shipped parcel post -- and the rates can be significantly higher.
Insurance is an additional cost to Parcel Post rates:
up to $ 50: $1.30
ALTERNATE CARRIERS FOR FOREIGN ORDERS
We can ship overseas orders via UPS at your request. It is NOT cost efficient at low weights (under 4 lbs/16 CDs), but at about 10 lbs it becomes equal or sometimes cheaper than airmail, depending on the country. If you are placing a very large order than enters a range where it it is beneficial for you to ship via UPS, we will contact you via email before shipping.
