International (OUS) Shipping Rates and Discount Shipping...
Where Do We Ship?
We ship to most countries. If your country is on the drop-down list on the shopping cart screen, we ship to your country. If your country is not on the drop down list, please contact us to see if we can ship to your country at this time
International Shipping Rates...
All International shipments are sent via US Postal Service. A shipping estimate is provided and funds reserved on your account when you check out.
Shipping will often be quoted higher than actual, and your order total will be adjusted to actual cost and discounts will be applied, when shipment is made. To cover the increased processing time required to prepare International orders, a 1 usd handling charge is added to the actual USPS shipping charges before our shipping discount, if any, is taken. (See Shipping Discounts, below). Our minimum shipping charge for International orders, including handling, is $6.95 usd.
International shipping cost is based on the weight of your shipment. Orders up to 4 pounds weight (approx 11 yds of fabric,) can normally be shipped via First Class International parcel at significant savings over International Priority Mail. 1st Class parcel takes the same transport as Priority, the only difference is that Priority mail is cleared through customs first. In most countries this is a matter of just a few minutes difference in processing time.
If you are not quoted 1st class parcel rates (this happens often, especially with orders containing lots of items) please check the box titled "Intl Orders - Check Box to have us evaluate your order for 1st Class Parcel Eligibility" on the Billing and Shipping screen, we'll make sure we analyze your order and apply the lowest airmail shipping rate possible!
To protect you from large losses in case your package does not arrive, we place shipping insurance on all international orders over 150 usd. We add the cost of this, which is normally about 2% of the estimated value of your total order and postage, to your shipping cost. Example: A 150 usd order with 50 usd shipping cost will incur a 4 usd insurance charge for 200 usd in protection.
International Shipping Discounts
Because we can't do a free shipping offer for international orders, we will apply a shipping discount to your International order when your product total is over $75 USD. We calculate this discount based on your remaining product total after all other discounts are taken. The chart below shows the shipping discount that will be applied when we ship your order. You do NOT need to apply a coupon to get this discount.
Product Total Purchase / Discount Amount
75 usd - 99.99 USD / Discount = 5 USD
100 usd - 124.99 USD / Discount = 7 USD
125 usd - 149.99 USD / Discount = 9 USD
150 usd - 199.99 USD / Discount = 11 USD
200 usd and Above USD / Discount = 14 USD
Priority Flat Rate Envelopes...
Because we carefully pack and protect all orders in a heavy inner heat-sealed packaging, the most we will ship in priority flat rate envelopes is 6 yards of normal fabric or batik fabric. Normally, 1st Class Parcel is cheaper and just as fast for smaller orders (see above).
Customs Duties and Local Taxes...
We do not collect these taxes and duties, and they are NOT included in our shipping charges. It is the responsibility of the buyer to pay these upon receipt. We do not ship orders as "gift" as this is a violation of customs laws. Your stated cost on customs forms is the final cost of the order after discounts have been taken.
Shipping time from the USA to most countries is 6 to 10 days. Delivery time to your destination after that depends on the speed of your local customs officials and local postal delivery service. Please allow at least 2-3 weeks before inquiring about your shipment. If your order has not arrived within 4 weeks, please contact your local customs officials first, using the tracking number on your order.
Lost or Missing International Shipments...
USPS tracking/customs numbers are assigned to all shipments. However, USPS does not track parcels after they leave the USA, as most countries don't report information back to the USPS. If your order is lost in transit, we'll help you in any way we can with the USPS, but we cannot track orders once they leave the USA. Nevada Dry Goods is not responsible for lost or stolen orders inside or outside the USA.
