COVID-19 & SHIPPING IMPACT

We can make no delivery guarantees due to the Covid-19 pandemic causing large backlogs in shipping and processing times across postal services.

We are still open, operational, and shipping parcels to Canada, the USA, and internationally. Packages may encounter delays due to increases in parcel screening, processing, volume, and increased security measures following the Covid-19 pandemic. USPS, UPS, Canada Post, and Asendia have all released statements concerning this matter.

Our shop and Chitchats Express (the shipping company we process all of our packages through) are committed to continuing to get your packages out to you securely and safely.

How long does it take to process an order?

Orders typically take 2-7 business days to process, during which time we will alert you that we have made a note of your order and are working on fulfilling it. Following that, we'll ship it out to you ASAP.

 

How long will it take to receive my order?

Once shipped:

  • USA: 3 to 15 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service, some delays may occur due to postal backlogs caused by Covid-19
  • CANADA: 5 to 15 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service, some delays may occur due to postal backlogs caused by Covid-19.

International Shipping Delays: 

  • International shipping delivery times may vary between 22 to 75 business days due to customs processing delays caused by Covid-19. This is entirely dependant on the speed of your local customs authority, and is out of our control.
     

Where do you ship from? My parcel has an American return address.

We ship using a Canadian courier company, Chit Chats Express, which is partnered with the United States Postal Service (USPS), UPS, Canada Post, and Asendia. All American and International orders are processed through Chit Chats Express, hence the American return address on some parcels.

 

Do you accept orders placed outside of Canada and the US?

We do indeed! We currently accept orders from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Mexico, Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, United States Minor Outlying Islands, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Japan, Malaysia, and South Korea.

Sometimes international parcels get held at customs. While we provide all the information necessary to expedite customs clearance, there is no way for us to speed up the customs process.

 

Will I be charged duties and customs fees?

Orders being sent to Canada and the USA will not be charged duties or customs fees. International orders may incur duties and brokerage fees, which are the responsibility of the buyer. We cannot calculate your duties and taxes for you.
