We have dramatically lowered the cost of global courier express shipments from FEDEX and DHL by negotiating some of the best rates in the world for FedEx and DHL. We realize that these are still higher than some want to pay, so we are reducing the cost of these services even further by USD $10 per shipment. This allows most customers to be able to receive a capo anywhere in the world in 3-4 days for ~$15 USD!
The price that you see quoted on our website for FEDEX and DHL is actually US$10 less than what we are actually paying for the shipping service.
We also contract with a company called APC International that is a US Postal Service wholesaler who is able to get us a low cost postal shipping method, however their process for driving out costs means that it can be slow and can take from 2-6 weeks to reach its destination. We hope that most of you will choose the low cost express shipping option, which has much better tracking and overall service.
For your convenience, we have added a shipping calculator to the shopping cart so you can quickly check the cost of shipping without having to go through the checkout process.
Have any further questions about shipping or anything else? We are always here to help. You can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at +1-925-968-4516 (yes, we actually answer the phone ;)
