USA Shipping Upgrades:
-CHOICE: Bigger box + choice select + less trimming = superior specimens normally not provided under the flat rate system.
-HEAT PACKS: We can ship out all year round, but that doesn’t mean we can ship to you. If you live in a FROZEN state and don’t want to wait until the thaw we can add heat packs. The parcel will also be wrapped / sealed / taped more thoroughly than usual. For best results add on this upgrade for as many true tropical plants you order, or know that each upgrade unit will provide up to 2 heat packs to the parcel. If you only add 2 heat packs to a bigger order we can’t be held responsible if things die. A lot of stuff in the inventory can deal with being cold actually, but other stuff simply cannot. If you see this message then the order will be held until you thaw, unless you add heat packs (72 hour). Unless you have it shipped to your workplace (recommended), they might be labelled advising the USPS hold the parcel indoors at the Office for you to pick up (they may or may not actually do it).
The base international shipping fee is $10, which covers up to 12 ounces (336 grams) in Canada or 4 ounces (112 grams) worldwide. Fees for weights beyond the base coverage will have to be paid via Paypal (email@example.com) before shipment is possible. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RATES:
Given the extreme diversity of the Mass Spectrum catalog, and limitations in the software that otherwise makes the site great, it isn’t possible to set up proper automatic international shipping fee calculation. The base fee is $10, which covers up to 12 ounces in Canada or 4 ounces (112 grams) worldwide. Fees for weights beyond the base coverage will have to be paid via Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org) before shipment is possible. Calculation for many orders has to be done afterwards anyways, as many items have a lot of variability from specimen to specimen. Lastly, with many live plant types its best to only ship Priority Mail.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS CRITICAL NOTICE:
You the Buyer are responsible for knowing your local customs laws and restrictions. It is literally impossible for anyone to know every rule and restriction for every possible product within every international jurisdiction on Planet Earth. For International buyers this means if Customs seizes / steals your package MSB isn’t responsible. The best is done to ensure you’ll get your package hastily and honestly, and wont ship something if it’s already known to be prohibited and would likely be a gamble on your investment.
At this time all but a few packages out of over 1,000 haven’t eventually arrived at their int’l destinations (across most of the different nations across the globe). Over 300 different types of plants, seeds, chemicals, ‘medicines’, herbal products, plant phytohormones and even electronics have all successfully made delivery from here so far but MSB cannot be financially penalized if something doesn’t pass or is stolen by customs. USPS often only tracks our packages to the U.S. exit port, only, so for true international tracking Express Mail is required which carries a $55 flat rate as the cheapest option.
