IMPORTANT COVID19 UPDATE REGARDING DELAYS
The global demand for online products is officially higher than any time since the COVID crisis began over a month ago. While we are thrilled that so many new people are finding us and will experience our cool stuff, we certainly wish it was under happier circumstances, and we wish we were able to fill orders faster.
So that you are aware, the online stores worldwide are in the same boat. Some of our good friends and competitors in the industry have stopped taking orders altogether, and most others are experiencing shipping delays, some up to 6 weeks. We suspect that this is in part what is driving our order volume even higher now.
We are processing and dispatching 90% of orders from our overseas warehouse within 2-3 days. However, the recent flight cancelations have bumped the time each order arrives to USPS facilities. We are aware that many orders have reached our customers past the estimated delivery dates. Many of those very late orders are held up by the same reasons while in transit to US. At this time the current delivery average for most US orders went up from 12 to 16 business days.
If your order has already been processed and dispatched but your tracking information says"Shipping Label Created" or "Pre-Shipment" this means that your order was sent from a warehouse outside of your country and is In-Transit to the origin facility where your order is expected by your local postal service. Unfortunately your tracking information may not show any updates until your local provider receives the package. Please note that even though the tracking information has not been updated this does NOT mean that your package hasn't been shipped or isn't moving. Your package will most likely still be delivered within the estimated period.
We are committed to take orders as they come, and are doing every single thing in our power to process your orders as quickly as we are able, despite the challenges we face in keeping our team healthy. If you are okay waiting, we invite you to place an order and we are grateful for your business and trust. We ask only for your patience and understanding at this difficult time, as our customer service team is overwhelmed. We promise, we are on the case!
Nonetheless we are still receiving many blessings and cheers from our happy customers that have already received their orders. We are more than happy to hear your stories and strongly appreciate your support. To future customers, we assure you that our cool stuff is worth the wait.

Will my items be sent in one package?
For logistical reasons, items in the same purchase will sometimes be sent in separate packages, even if you've specified combined shipping.
If you have any other questions, please contact us and we will do our best to help you out.
How does the FREE "Just Pay Shipping" offers work?
Our manufacturers around the world may sometimes run short on storage room and may sometimes need to clear inventory rapidly to make room for new products.

When you place a JPS order you're getting the product free and will only pay for the shipping processing fees.
