How To Place The Mailout Request?

Placing the Mailout Request can be described in 3 steps.

Step #1: Make sure the package does not contain any prohibited items otherwise it will be returned to our warehouse by the carrier, or customs. If the package does contain any prohibited items, you can request a Special Request and we can remove them. Once the package is good to go, fill out the customs declaration form (find the instructions on how to do it on our customs declaration page).

Filling in the customs declaration

Step #2: When your customs declaration is complete, click the ‘Mailout’ button. You can choose from 2 options:

[1] Mailout – takes 24-72 hrs to process depending on the season (there can be delays during a busy season which takes place around major shopping days like Black Friday, Christmas, etc.).
[2] Priority Mailout – are processed within 24hrs. During the busy season, the processing time can be slightly longer.

After selecting the type of Mailout, choose the delivery address and the shipping method from the USA. You can also request any of our additional services:

– Adding “FRAGILE” stickers
– Adding bubble wrap
– Adding extra / security tape
– Removing invoices

Confirm your Mailout reqeust by clicking the ‘Confirm Order’ button.
