Prices listed on this web store and during the secure checkout do not include shipping costs.
Shipping costs have to be manually calculated for each order. We will email or phone you with the shipping charges when they exceed $20.00 and ask for confirmation to go ahead with the order.
Unlike many businesses, we don't make a profit on the shipping. This means fair and honest shipping prices. There is no easy way to automatically calculate your shipping costs, because we try to bundle items together, to further reduce shipping costs.
