GENERAL: Your e-Scopes® Online or Phone Order is usually, but not always, ready to ship the same day... with automatic E-MAIL CONFIRMATION when your order is received AND when it ships! (Overseas shipping takes somewhat longer...)

STANDARD SHIPPING: Although UPS and USPS has become VERY expensive lately, we are still offering shipping for most orders for $US 11.99 or 15% of the value of your order (whichever is greater) up to a maximum charge of $US 25.00. The actual amount of the standard shipping domestic shipping charge is automatically calculated and displayed when you check out. International shipping is always more expensive. Unless you specifically request it, we will use the "Best Way" to ship to you. NON-STANDARD SHIPPING: Charges for other than U.S. domestic UPS ground shipping is calculated in the following manner: 1.) ALASKA, HAWAII, P.R., CANADA: For all packages to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Canada, there IS an additional charge for shipping. This is because USPS Priority Mail service is the only ECONOMICAL service available to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico and generally, Canada. UPS sometimes charges a $US 25.00 "Customs Brokerage Fee" for shipments going to Canada. We have no control over this. If you request it on your order form in the "Comments" section, we can notify you of shipping charges (but NOT "Customs" charges) for your approval before shipment is made and before your credit card is charged. 2.) OVERSEAS ORDERS: For all "Overseas" locations, we usually ship by Priority Mail This service is fast, reliable (in most locations...) and is far less expensive than UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. If you request it, we will contact you with the amount of additional shipping for your approval before shipment is made and before your credit card is charged. We provide full insurance on most overseas shipments. However, the USPS does not provide insurance coverage to certain countries. Overseas shipping takes up to 30 days -- even by air -- because of security, customs inspections, etc. 4.) OVERSEAS TAXES: There are no "export taxes" for shipments made from the United States that are charged to you. However, your country MAY have import taxes and other fees that will apply to your order and that you must pay to your country's authorities before claiming your package. We can not tell you what these fees might cost, so you will need to determine this in advance from your country's authorities if this is of concern to you.
