on orders of $75 or more (In the United States & Canada)

Free shipping applies to most products. Most orders (in The United States or Canada) over $75 ship for free. A low $3.99 (USA) or $5.99 (Canada) flat shipping rate is applied to most other orders. Some heavy products like Bead On It Boards, tools, or lamps may not qualify. Each shipment is sent through USPS, and with only a few exceptions, will come in a gray bubble mailer, or, a flat rate priority bubble package.

Free shipping is available to all other countries worldwide on orders of $150 or more, and $11.99 flat rate for all other orders. These shipments are also made through USPS (United States Postal Service), which will forward to local post delivery systems upon arrival to the country. Depending upon the local postal reliability in your country, you may want to ask about shipping via UPS/FedEx, particularly in some South American, African, & Asian nations.
We may limit shipping of certain items to certain countries, particularly tools. Should such a decision be made, you will be contacted and notified after placing your order.

Although we charge just $11.99 shipping (or free on orders of $150+) to over 200 different countries, some non-American country governments may charge additional VAT (value added taxes) or import fees. Unfortunately, we have no control over these taxes, and you may want to consult your local government/postal shipping to find out what (if anything) you may be required to pay. Because of the wide variety of shipping carriers, methods, and countries, Potomac Bead Company is not responsible for shipments once they leave the United States.

Note that most products within the United States are shipped via USPS (United States Postal Service). 2-3 day shipping and 2-5 day shipping timeframes are estimates, and can vary with factors at USPS distribution centers and national weather conditions. Shipping estimates also do not include weekends, or days where an order is placed after 3pm EST. USPS does not guarantee shipping times for anything except for overnight shipping. If you need a shipment urgently, please contact us for overnight shipping rates.
