*** THE BORING STUFF ***
All items are shipped in a gift box or bag in a padded envelope, via the USPS first class mail, with delivery confirmation. Priority shipping and Overnight Express, is available for US shipping. Contact me so I can send you an adjusted invoice before payment.
Insurance is optional for small ticket items. Orders that total $50 or more that are shipped within the US, are automatically insured. I usually ship within 2 business days after payment is received unless I am away, in which case I will ship promptly upon my return. Discounted shipping is offered on multiple purchases being shipped to the same address with a single payment.
To My International Customers:
I do not collect any customs when sending packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and Cupperbeads is not responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.
International orders are shipped Firstclass Airmail. US Postal Service states that it takes from 5 to 10 business days for order to reach the customer, but may take a little longer. Honestly, I have had orders take several weeks shipped from the US to Canada, and 1 week to go much further, so it does vary. There is a customs number on the customs form that is required to ship international orders, that is used to track orders, however orders are not insured unless you have your order shipped International Express which is over $25. If you require this shipping, let me know and I will check with the post office for the exact shipping cost, and send you an adjusted invoice.
