International Mail Order Shipping Policy
Additional international shipping fees are calculated after the merchandise order is received. The international shipping fees PLUS the USA domestic rate. Total will be charged to your credit card. Hatfield Music will ship the lowest air mail rate available, usually First Class International. Any orders over four pounds are required by the USPS to be shipped Priority Mail, which can be as much as three times the First Class International rate.
International orders take more time to process. They must be packaged more securely and additional paperwork regarding labels and custom forms are required. Shipping fees must be calculated on the United States Postal Service (USPS) website on a per-order basis by weight and destination.
International packages have a higher risk of damage and/or loss during shipment. If lost during shipment international packages are rarely located and returned, therefore, overall losses are much higher.
International customers may request a quote for total shipping fees (US plus International) prior to ordering by sending an email with merchandise selections to email@example.com
