Free shipping does not apply to international orders. Rates are calculated by weight and shipping method. We can often save money on your shipping and will adjust your charge if we are able to lower your shipping cost. You are welcome to call or email for an estimate before placing your order.
Canadian orders are shipped by either USPS or Fed Ex Ground. We determine the least expensive method unless you indicate a preference.
All other international orders are shipped via USPS (first class or Priority Mail.)
We carry a large inventory and work hard to fill and ship orders quickly. However, if we are out of a particular item and expect it to be in stock within a reasonable time (less than 10 business days) we will hold your order until it is complete. Because we are absorbing the cost of shipping, it is prohibitive for us to routinely split orders. If, however, the order will take longer than 10 business days to fulfill completely we will split the order at no additional cost to you.
If you prefer to have your order split into multiple shipments, please indicate this in the Order Instructions box during checkout. We will contact you if it is necessary to split the order and bill you for your additional shipping cost accordingly (split orders are not eligible for free shipping).
After making your purchase you will receive an email (separate from your order confirmation) containing a link to your product(s). You can also access your digital products here

This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
