USPS Tracking
USPS (United States Postal Service) does NOT provide tracking numbers. Instead they use Delivery Confirmation, which we include in the cost of our Priority postage. This service allows you to look online and see when a package was delivered. This is not a tracking system. We can not guarantee a delivery date.

Because of cost, most of our International order are shipped First Class Mail instead of Priority. Please be aware of customs delays and the shipping distance. This can cause some deliveries to take longer than expected.
