Shipping costs are most economic for packages under 2 kilograms total weight.

So your order is shipped fast, secure, and does not get lost, or delivered to the wrong person. And, incase of undeliverable for any reason, it will be sent back to us.
Goods are usually shipped within 24 hours after receiving your payment. Delivery takes 3 to 6 days for European orders, or 6 to 12 days for International orders.
Orders from us are sent via registered mail, which means that you have to sign for the parcel upon arrival. Noone else can receive the package. If you aren't in when the postman calls they will normally leave you a note telling you to collect it from the mail depot.
