Shipping and Returns

PayPal is welcome and gladly accepted. You can pay via Paypal even if you don't have an account with them. Please note that if you pay by eCheck, it usually takes between 3 and 5 business days to clear.

An eCheck is a payment that you make directly from your bank account. See Paypal website for more information

We charge sales tax on orders shipped to New York State addresses.


24-hour Shipping

We understand how important it is for you to get your items quickly, so we make every effort to ship your order within 24 hours and in many cases the same business day.

Due to carrier pick up schedules, orders placed after 3pm EST on Friday will ship on Monday or the following business day if the Monday falls on a holiday.

In case of an eCheck (see above) your order will be shipped out as soon as payment clears.

All orders are shipped by either USPS or FedEx and include a tracking number. Signature confirmation may be added (at our cost) for large orders.


International Orders

We ship internationally as permitted by US Customs regulations and declare full value of goods less any discounts. Shipping charges are not included in the declared value amount. All customs and other fees imposed by your country are your responsibility to pay - please remember to consider this part of your cost when you place an order with us.

Please be aware that orders shipped via USPS First Class International Mail do not include door-to-door tracking and may take anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks to arrive.


Refunds and Exchanges

Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact us to receive instructions for returns. We will gladly accept the return of products for a refund or exchange within 14 days from the date of purchase. Buyer is responsible for return shipping charges unless the item purchased is at our fault (incomplete shipment/wrong item shipped).

Items must be returned in unaltered condition and properly protected against shipping damage.

Lost Packages: On rare occasions, due to no fault on our part, a package sent via the USPS may not arrive at its destination. In such an instance, we will reship your order after a reasonable time has elapsed, but we will require that you sign an affidavit confirming that your package was indeed never received.
