International & U.S. Territories
As we work to navigate the quickly growing list of international tax complexities involved with retailing to customers in many countries, our current international shipping options are very limited. All international shipping rates are calculated live at checkout based on weight and destination, shipped by UPS or USPS. International customers are responsible for any customs, tariff, brokerage fees, etc. that may be assessed. Inquire with your relevant local governing agencies for details.
