Shipping Costs

Domestic Orders. Shipping charges can be highly variable depending on bulk, weight, destination, insurance and other factors so I determine them on a per order basis. There is a minimum order requirement of $20.00. All packages shipped in the US will be shipped via Priority Mail through the USPS. All packages will be insured according to their value. To get an estimate of shipping costs refer to USPS calculator. USPS Domestic Calculator and USPS International Calculator. If you live in Florida, 7.50% sales tax will be added to your purchase. We’ll email you back your final invoice total, after we have shipped your order. Unless we're out of town, we'll generally ship within 2 days after payment is confirmed.
International Mail. Shipping and handling outside of USA can vary considerably. Orders outside the USA will be sent Overseas via USPS Priority International Mail. You will be charged the additional actual shipping costs we incur. If postal insurance to your country does not cover value of product(s), shipment will be at your risk.

Method Of Payment:

PayPal is the safer, easier way to make an online payment or set up a merchant account. It is the ONLY method for customers outside of the United States.


Credit Card. For customers in the United States, we also accept your Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.
Please fill out the online Order Form with all your pertinent information.
Credit Card Security: To pay by credit card you may choose one of the following methods:

1. You can call us at (850) 443-0504 to provide us with your credit card information. We will need your name as it appears on the card, the full number, and the expiration date and the three digit verification number located on the backside of the card and the zip code for the card billing address. We will also need the type of card i.e. MasterCard, VISA, Discover or American Express. We use the square for processing credit cards, so there is NO electronic copy of the complete credit card number.

2. E-mail us your telephone number, or make a note in the comments section on the order form and we will gladly call you.
Money Order, payable in US dollars, via mail (for US orders only).
Check (for US orders only). A personal or business check drawn from any US bank, via mail. We cannot accept checks drawn from a bank outside the US. Please secure an international money order payable in US$ if you wish to send a check from outside the USA. Please allow 10-15 days for check clearing your bank before product is shipped unless the check is CERTIFIED. We may waive the waiting period for established accounts.
