All shipments are sent using registered mail service handled by your local post carrier. The package is insured and fully refundable if lost.
Shipping normally takes 1 week within Europe and up to 2 weeks outside Europe. At times packages may be delayed and take up to 4 weeks.
Registered mail may have to be signed for when delivered at the door or picked up at your post office. Some local carriers leave a note, others don't. Check with your local post office if the package has not arrived within 2 weeks, then get back to us and we can initiate
a search and assist you with information. Sometimes checking with the next office up the delivery chain yields better results since they normally have better resources to track it than smaller local subsidiaries.
Uncalled packages are returned to sender usually within two weeks. Some countries may apply longer or shorter times. We will charge you an additional shipping and transfer fee before a second dispatch.
Shipping is discounted on orders over 100 grams of weight. When ordering 3 or more MSSIAH Cartridges, shipping is free.
To reduce shipping cost for low value orders with 1 single SID2SID circuit board, you have an option of shipping the package uninsured. The payment method needs to be bank wire transfer.
Checking this option means the package is sent by standard mail thus not trackable and not refundable if lost.
