International Shipping- What you should know!

International ShippingIt is summertime and potty training is on everyone’s mind, especially if they have a child that is of potty training age.  I have received several phone calls and emails this week concerning International Shipping and custom fees.  It seems like here lately, more and more of the packages that are leaving the country are receiving some type of custom charges.  One thing that you should be aware of, is that not all companies include custom charges in their shipping price.  Our policy, for example, clearly states that all custom fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.  If you are placing an order and you know that it is an International order, please read the shipping policy before placing it.

The other most asked question this week has been, “How long will it take for my package to arrive if shipped to ??????”  The answer is that it depends on what shipping method you choose.  USPS takes about 2-6 weeks to arrive at its destination.  FedEx on the other hand, delivers in about 1-2 weeks.  The choice is all yours because either way, they both take your package through customs.

And finally, for those of you who like to track your package, you should know that FedEx is insured and  will allow you to have tracking until the time the package is delivered while USPS carries no insurance on your package and will only give you tracking information up to the time that your package hits customs.  All I can say is choose wisely!
