Shipping Information

Effective January 27th, 2019 our shipping prices are being  forced to  increase due to the cost of the increase in postal rates.  While we do everything we can to minimize the impact of shipping rates increases from our providers, we do have to raise them when there is a dramatic change.  We are still evaluating the changes and will post them to this page once completed.

Duties Paid

For the following Countries or Zones, Duty Paid Shipping (known as DDP) will be offered. In some cases, this will be the only option.  For those who are getting shipped to a zone location (such as the European Union), You may receive a cheaper option that would omit this feature.  It will say so on the shipment option that it will not include Duties paid.  While initially cheaper, this would mean that you would be responsible for any Duties that your country may charge.  Additional Fees may also be charged by your carrier for collecting said Duties.  Please check with them for more information.

Countries or Zones:

The United Kingdom: Fully Participates in this program.  Non-Pre-Paid Duty options are NOT available.  Duties are built into the shipping price, which is why the price of shipping goes up the more you spend^^

Canada: Fully Participates in this program. We are no longer offering the standard shipping service as of 1/20/2019.  Transit times will increase marginally with this as they will be shipped along side out International schedule (located below).

Western Europe: Western Europe has a fully participating level.  However, we are currently still sorting out which countries fall under this description based off of shipper’s guidelines.

Eastern Europe: Eastern Europe will have the option to have their package be sent without the DDP service.  If you see this option, please be advised that while it may be cheaper initially, you will be responsible for all Duties plus additional fees. However, we are currently still sorting out which countries fall under this description based off of shipper’s guidelines.

A few important notes:

–> If your country still charges VAT on top of the duties or custom’s fees, this option will NOT cover it. You will be responsible for paying any additional VAT addons.

–> This is a trial service we are using for the summer.  This maybe replaced with our initial shipping service below.

(Please note: As of this time, Orders containing the Free Spirit Backpack will incur a delay in shipment for up to 1 week.)

Thursday (Past 2 pm EST), Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday (Prior to 2 pm)

Please note these dates are subject to change. Holidays or days when there aren’t transit options available that day, the shipment will be postponed to the next available day.
