All our goods we send by Airmail. Transportation services are provided by the company: “Russian post”. We offer two delivery options. It’s “Standard” and “Express”. “Standard” method is the best option in terms of price and time. Usually the delivery time of our goods takes from 12 to 35 days. In some cases, this time may be longer, it depends to the specifics works of the customs and postal services. There may be additional checks and failures in the custom and postal services. Also, the duration of delivery time depends on the distance of your country from Russia. If you want to reduce the delivery time, choose “Express AirMail”. Usually the delivery time takes from 10 to 20 days.

Please note, in the postal and customs service people work in this regard are not excluded – human errors, which can increase the delivery time. Also, adversely weather conditions and other unforeseen situations are also possible.

For example, a similar situation happened on March 8, 2019, when several of our goods left the territory of Russia and went to the United States. Only, April 20!!!, it has been reported that these goods arrived in the United States. So, 42 days was no update information about the location of those items. Many of our customers were excited and concerned about this situation. Russian post support did not provide us with any clear explanation as to why these items were delayed in transit. We noticed that such delays happen on the eve of holidays. March 8 is a holiday – international women’s day.

We remind you that all our products we send to our customers only by air mail, but still the delivery time of goods sometimes varies greatly.

Please pay attention! We can not influence the efficiency and specificity of the Postal and Customs services. We understand the excitement of our customers when their order is delayed in transit. In turn, we ask our customers to understand us in this situation, because to date, International shipments from Russia are possible only through the Transport company – Russian Post (Whose efficiency, stability and quality of work leaves much to be desired) or DHL (this is an extremely expensive, but fast delivery method, the shipping price starts from $ 130). For all our customers, we send a message which indicates the track number to track their parcel. If you do not receive this message, please check your emal “Spam” folder or contact us. If you have not received your order after 30 days (for standard mail) and 15 days (for Express mail) please let us know. In these cases, we send a special application for search of postal items to the special service of the Russian Post. The period of consideration of applications for search by international mail can be from 30 to 90 days in accordance with the world postal Convention (Doha, 2012).

We understand that it is a very long time to wait for the results of the decision.

On our part, we will ask PayPal to return the money to you before the results of the verification of our application for the location of your parcel will be known.
