In general, it takes 2-3 weeks for most West European countries, Australia, and East Coast of Canada. Sometimes, it can be delivered as short as one week, or up to four weeks (especially during the Christmas season). For the rural areas of Canada, East European counties, Spain, Italy, Asia, Central and South American, and Africa, the shipping takes 3-4 weeks on average. However, weather, natural disasters and other uncontrollable events can interrupt carrier's transportation flow and this is out of our control. We could not be responsible for the damage of that. The tracking number is generated when we printing the shipping label. It is automatically sent to the email address that you provided to during check out (except some of the international order). If you did not receive a shipping notification email, you can email us for a copy of it. At this time, our web software can not retrieve the tracking number into our web. Express shipping via EMS, FedEx is available. We can also use your FedEx shipping account if you have a better deal with the shipping carrier. We might ask the carrier to request buyer's signature upon receiving of the package unless the buyer inform us with written notice to waive our responsibility of losing the merchandise.
