How to calculate your shipping
Shipping fees are automatically calculated by the shipper you choose and are based on the weight of your order, size of your package, and the zip code to which your order is being shipped to. To find out the shipping fees on the items you would like to order simply follow the steps below.
1. Place the item or items you want to order into your shopping basket. You will be automatically taken to the Ready to Checkout page.
2. On the checkout page look below the shopping cart to the left and you will see our "shipping calculator" with a box to enter your zip code and your state.
3. And just below the shipping calculator is a box called "Shipping Method" with a small arrow on the right side that you can click on and choose which method of shipping you would like for your order. The default shipping is UPS but you have the option of several different methods as well.
4. Lastly, simply choose the method you want to see and click the "apply to my order" button and your shipping will appear above in the checkout as part of your total.
** You may also choose different methods of shipping if you would like to compare the shipping fees. You do not need to enter any credit card information to view the shipping costs. First class mail can only be chosen if the total weight of your order which includes the item, the packing, and the box to ship in, weighs less than 13 ounces. That's not our rule, that's the United States Post Office's rule.
So that's how easy it is to figure your shipping. Put it in the basket, enter your zip code and state, choose your preferred method, and click on "apply".
IMPORTANT INFO for customers in HI, AK, PR, and US outlying islands - We ship USPS only to these states and territories. UPS will deliver there, but since they have to take a boat to get there by 'ground' shipping, it's usually pretty expensive. If you choose UPS we will change the method to the postal service instead. We may adjust the shipping fee you were initially shown at checkout if you chose UPS, to reflect mail services instead of UPS fees. If you choose UPS and it costs more to ship via the post office, your shipping cost will be adjusted to the correct costs which may or may not be more depending on the post office and what they actually charge to ship your order.
