This is a frequent request, but we unfortunately always have the same reply: Sorry, NO.We declare all order shipments accurately and with full descriptions and pricing exactly as shown on our website.We ship many international packages each business day, and in general we do not have problems with customs or legal restrictions.Occasionally, if a product is not recognized by or is unfamilliar to customs, it may be held for further inspection.
If up to date tracking and on time delivery are crucial, We ship things internationally using USPS and UPS.If you are not checking out on our site, but requesting an order or shipment by phone or email, please note that we can only provide an accurate shipping quote after getting complete details on the specific items you wish to have shipped to you, your full destination address, and the carrier and shipping service by which you wish to have your order shipped to you.This is because precise shipping costs vary due to a number of specific details, including the weight of package, volume of package, the shipping carrier and shipping service, and the destination address.^Please note that USPS tracking is often lagged by up to 24-36 hours, and USPS in Chicago is known to frequently skip / miss package tracking scans.
Thus your tracking number may not show the progress of your Priority Mail shipment for up to 2 business days after your order has physically been packaged and handed to USPS (or even longer for 1st Class / international shipments).
The inspection process is normal, and normally results in clearance within a week. We can no longer take responsibility for packages lost in the mail using this shipping method.** UPS charges a minimum "brokerage fee" for bringing packages through international customs.
