We often receive email asking
whether or not we ship to other countries.
The answer is "Yes, we are happy to do so".
Another question we are frequently asked is how much would it
cost for that shipping?
Shipping costs are based on
the total weight of the package, where the item is going to
be shipped and which shipping method you have us use.,
UPS has been
proven to be the most reliable shipper and their tracking system
is first rate. That will be important if you want to track your
package to determine where it is at any given moment. The tracking
for US Post Office International Global Express mail is less
UPS is more
expensive than Global Express mail, which is why many of our
customers choose US Post Office International Global Express
If you want
something in hand as soon as possible, choose UPS as your shipping
method. But if you want to save money and are willing to take
a chance your package may take longer than expected for to arrive,
you might want to use Global Express mail.
Please be aware
that once we ship your package by the method you choose, our
responsibility ends. We will assist you in tracking a lost package
and submit the necessary paperwork if a package is lost or damaged
in transit. But we are not responsible if the package
takes longer than expected, or if your package is lost or damaged
while in transit. That is between you and the shipping company
Also, be aware that the Postal Service will not accept a claim
for a missing package until after 30 days have passed from the
time it was shipped. And if the package is lost and a claim must
be submitted, it can take a fair amount of time to get the matter
The most common
reason a package takes longer than expected to arrive when shipped
to a location outside of the United States is that it has to
clear the Customs Office in the country the package is being
shipped to. And we have no control over this!
Packages shipped by UPS clear customs much faster than packages
shipped using Global Express Mail, so take this into consideration
when choosing the shipping method you want us to use.
is always yours... choose wisely.
How to determine
You can easily
determine the cost of shipping any item or items that we offer.
To do so, simply find the button machine (or button-making supplies)
you wish to order in the table below and click on it. Doing so
will take you to the order page for that particular machine.
Then, select the item or items you wish to order. After entering
your first item, you will be asked for the country the item is
to be shipped to, the postal code and the method of shipping
you would like to use. The shopping cart will then calculate
the shipping cost based on those criteria for that first item.
If you add more items to your shopping cart, the shopping cart
will update the shipping charges as you add each additional item.
To see what
it would cost to ship the item or items you selected using a
different shipping method, simply click on the shipping method
that you chose that should now be a highlighted link, select
another shipping method, and then click on the "Submit Your
Choice" button. Doing so will then recalculate the shipping
charges using the new method.
Don't worry... nothing is final until after you enter a credit
card number and click on the "Submit Secure Order"
If you are ready to place an order for the item or items you
entered, simply click on the "CheckOut Now" button
and the shopping cart will ask for the information necessary
to complete the transaction.
If you live
outside the United States and want to have us ship you a button
machine or button-making supplies, chances are you are going
to have to pay duties / customs charges when the package arrives.
These charges are beyond our control and we have no way of knowing
how much those charges are going to be.
Customers will sometimes ask us to enter a lower figure on their
invoice, or mark the package as a sample, or a gift to try and
avoid custom / duties charges. However, doing so would constitute
fraud on our part and we are NOT willing to do it. So please don't ask.
