Due to the slowdown announcement in Oct 2021 by USPS, we are suspending Priority Mail service until it is improved. (USPS Priority Mail is typically delivered in 3 working days. But very occasionally a priority mail package may be delayed for several days in the mailing system. If delivery time is extremely critical to your order, we would recommend Priority Mail Express or other couriers.)
Domestic First Class Mail is only 1-2 days slower than Priority Mail in delivery. We suggest domestic customers choose First Class Mail for an order under 15 oz to save shipping cost.
Real shipping cost is calculated according to package weight and distance, and can be found in the checkout page after delivery address is specified in the fields.
