Shipping Fee's INSIDE & OUTSIDE USA: My shipping Fee's are a guestimate that reflect a combination of Packaging, Insurance, and Shipping Fee's. Please know that prices have gone up at the Post Office AND Insurance is costly+ now charges Sellers a 9% of Shipping Fee fee for charging the Buyer for shipping. For example, if I charge you $15.00 for shipping, charges me 9% of $15.00 = $1.35. These shippingfee's are built into my price.If I overcharged you on Shipping, Packaging, and Shipping Fee's, I am happy to refund any overage over $5.00 after fee's.
Shipping OUTSIDE USA: I ship EXPRESS MAIL which is more expensive, but is the only way I can properly INSURE & Track.
