|PLEASE NOTE: Once your order has been processed and shipped delivery time is entirely out of our control. Normally shipping services are quite fast and efficient, but weather and other unpredictable factors, may delay deliveries. We cannot be responsible for delivery delays once an order has shipped. If ordering out of the United States of America, you may have to pay additional customs charges, and/or your customs may even reject the package. This is completely out of our control, since it is your countries regulations. If you have a preferred method of shipment, we are happy to ship it to your preferences, however you will then have to pay to have it shipped your preferred method.|

We will give you the estimated shipping charge; for example, Priority Mail Express, 1 or 2 days to New York, NY, $52.00 for a 5 pound package.
All Overseas Orders (including Canada, Latin America, South America):
We ship using USPS Priority Mail International (with insurance). Before processing your order, we will inform you of the estimated cost of shipping. If you approve of the shipping estimate, we will process your order and send you and invoice via Square for the actual shipping charges incurred. If ordering out of the United States of America, you may have to pay additional customs charges, and/or your customs may even reject the package. This is completely out of our control, since it is your countries regulations.
*We are unable to ship some products Overseas due to supplier relationships. Including but not limited to Burt’s Bees.
SPECIAL NOTE ON OVERSEAS SHIPPING RATES:
For overseas orders, we charge exactly what the U.S. Post Office charges us. Yes, major firms, such as Amazon, for example, do offer less costly overseas shipping options because, as a giant international company, they have much more leverage with shippers. For example, Amazon has an arrangement with the U.S. Postal Service in which the U.S. Post Office makes Sunday deliveries, at regular rates, for Amazon in busy U.S. delivery areas. Additionally, major firms, such as Amazon, often maintain their own fulfillment centers in other countries. By contrast, we are a single store in Wisconsin, so we must pay basically what any private citizen pays for shipping, and unfortunately, without negotiated discounts, shipping outside the U.S. using the U.S. Post Office can be very costly.
ORDERS WITH DIFFERING BILLING AND SHIPPING ADDRESSES:
All orders wishing to be shipped to an address other than the billing address will be subject to an additional layer of security for The Soap Opera® as well as the credit card holder. These measures include, but is not limited to, confirming the identity of the billing individual via order history, phone contact or email contact.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
