NOTE: Potential Restocking Fee for International Orders

In the case of international orders, a restocking fee may be assessed if merchandise is pulled from our warehouse, packaged to ship, researched for best carrier to your country, researched for exact shipping charges, researched for required customs forms, and your order is unable to be processed due to continued non-communication via email or phone for more than 10-business days. If no communication is received for up to 10-business days, a $50 re-stocking fee may be applied to your credit card, and the remainder of your original order total refunded.


There are many countries that we will not ship orders to. If you are ordering from outside the United States, and are not one of the select countries that can be processed through the shopping cart system, please contact us to discuss the probability of fulfilling an order to your country. The following are the payment options if your country cannot be processed through the shopping cart system:

  1. Visa or Mastercard through a PayPal Money Request, send via an email link (no account required)
  2. Wire Transfer of funds though your banking institution

Credit Card
For international orders to those countries not processable through the site's shopping cart system (see list above), we process credit card orders via PayPal only. We will email you a link to a PayPal Money Request (no account required) for payment. This secure system will accept payments via Visa or Mastercard. A delay of a few days is required before shipping in order for us to verify funds, and initiate a successful transfer of those funds to our banking institution from PayPal.


Wire Transfer
For orders from outside the United States to countries not processable through our shopping cart system, and if you are not paying by credit care, a wire transfer option is available. This is the most expeditious method in which to process and ship your order. To utilize this method of payment, please contact us by
phone or email for information on this preferred method of payment.

For International orders processed outside of the shopping cart system, we may require an electronic (email) approval of a release of liability agreement before the order is shipped.
