STANDARD: This is the least expensive way to have your order shipped. For US customers it usually takes anywhere from 5 to 10 days FROM THE DATE OF SHIPMENT. The Rest of the World normally takes from 7 to 30 days FROM THE DATE OF SHIPMENT.
PRIORITY (USPS): – For US customers it usually takes from 2 – 4 business days FROM THE DATE OF SHIPMENT.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION & RETURNS
Every customer receives a shipping email notification with a tracking number once the parcel leaves our warehouses either in North Carolina US or Argentina. We ship mostly all our orders from our NC warehouse, however, all orders ORIGINATE in Argentina therefore all orders are basically INTERNATIONAL orders. There is no such thing as a DOMESTIC order. This is very important when you consider our shipping and time rates. We may have the product you ordered already in our US warehouse (most of the time we do) or not. In the meantime the order will show as being processed up to the time of shipment.
The date of shipment can vary depending on availability of the product on the date you place your order. If you need your order very quickly, you should email us first to check on the availability of the product.
Almost all orders are shipped in a timely manner. However, since we have many products available, one thing that could delay the date of shipment is if one of the products ordered is on backorder in Argentina, especially collectorÂ´s items. Eventually, weÂ´ll send you an email asking if you are open to substitutes. Most of the times this is not necessary.

International Shipping Disclaimer (Outside the US)
You, the buyer, are responsible for any VAT, tariff, duty, taxes, handling fees, customs clearance charges, etc. required by your country for importing consumer goods. We do not collect this beforehand, and cannot give you an estimate of the cost – charges vary around the world.
As an international consumer, please do your research to ensure there are no surprise charges when clearing your package through customs, and to have an idea of what the additional cost may be. If you are unfamiliar with customs fees and charges, please speak to your local postal or customs office for more information.
It is your full responsibility to verify the customs, duties charges, and procedures in your country prior to placing your order. If customs fees and charges are refused at the time of delivery, your order will be returned and you will not receive a refund for shipment costs.
We especially recommend contacting your local customs or postal office on large orders.
