- Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations.
When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.
International Shipping Information And Policy
In order to keep shipping costs down, our basic international shipping is done via USPS First Class International. This shipping method does not offer tracking via the USPS website and does not have a specified delivery period. It is not available in all countries. Typical delivery times are 2-4 weeks for delivery, however, shipping to some countries may take longer. Please choose the appropriate shipping method for your country/region as MEE does not guarantee delivery for untracked shipping methods. For quickest and safest service, please use FedEx or EMS. There are other shipping options available from the USPS and FedEx:

FedEx International Economy:
Time-definite delivery typically in 2 to 5 business days (typically 2 or 3 business days to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico). From the U.S. to more than 215 countries and territories. MEE typically ships orders within 1 business day, however orders can take up to 3-4 business days depending on the number of orders received. For orders shipped by methods that do not offer tracking, it is the customers responsibility after the order ships. Please make sure your address is correct in our system and use the notes section to include any special shipping instructions. If you are uncertain as to the reliability of local delivery, please use a tracked shipping method such as EMS or FedEx International.
Customs, Duties, and Taxes
International shipments may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Please contact your local customs office for information.
You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
If you need to return an item, please Contact Us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order.
