International Shipping Methods and Costs*
When will my order ship?
The following factors may affect our ability to ship your order quickly:
- We will not ship orders to be paid by personal check until the check has cleared.
- If we happen to be out of stock when you order, we will upgrade your shipping (if necessary) to make sure that you receive your lenses within the specified delivery timeline. However, we cannot account for some manufacturer backorders that may delay delivery further.
Canadian Shipping - $10.95
Orders are shipped via USPS First Class
International and will generally arrive
in 7-14 working days. Some packages can
be held by Canadian customs for duties and
taxes, see disclaimer below.
All Other Countries
are shipped either by International Express
Mail or by Global Priority Mail.
Global Priority Mail - $15.95
Express - $26.95
Additional International Shipping Information:
International Express is
generally significantly faster. Delivery
times by both methods vary widely between
countries and often depend to a large extent
on local import/customs processing. With
some exceptions your lenses can generally
be expected to arrive within 1-4 weeks.
Priority Mail is slower than Global
Express with delivery times that generally
fall between 2 and 4 weeks, depending on
the destination country and the time required
for the package to clear customs in the
Sales or Value Added Taxes
Please note that some governments (especially
in Europe and Asia) collect Sales or Value
Added Taxes (VAT) on contact lenses and other
optical items. Such duties and/or taxes are
NOT included in the purchase price of your
order. It is the your responsibility to pay
any such taxes as required by local statute
at the point of delivery.
Loss and Fraud
ExpressContacts monitors package loss and
credit card fraud rates for different countries
and regions on an ongoing basis. On occasion,
we find it necessary to require additional
information prior to filling an order and/or
decline to fill an order. The company reserves
the right to decline to fill any order to
any country or region at its sole discretion.
