Shipping Time - I am the only employee of MetaphysicalRealm1.com. Unless I have a problem with your order (and I will email or call you if I do), I will almost always get your order out within 24-48 hours of receiving it, even if a weekend is involved. I actually manage to get many orders out the same day they come in.
I leave home for two gem and mineral shows a year in Denver in September and the largest one in the world--Tucson, in February for a week or so, sometimes more, sometimes less. I take an occasional short vacation. I generally have access to email when I'm gone, so I will be in touch with you, letting you know when I will return, etc. Customer orders are the first priority when I come back. I love taking care of my customers! It really is my favorite thing to do.
Shipping - I always ship the least expensive way. Many packages go out USPS First Class Mail (for USA) or USPS First Class Mail International (outside of the USA). I also ship USPS Priority Mail and USPS Express Mail for larger and/or heavier packages. USPS Priority Mail and USPS Express Mail are available any time on smaller packages that would normally go USPS First Class as well. All you have to do is email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone me (928-821-5330) and let me know that you'd like to change the shipping method. I can send you a PayPal Money Request or PayPal Invoice or you can adjust the amount of your check or money order to pay MetaphysicalRealm1.com the difference.
Shipping to Italy, South Africa, and Nigeria - I will only ship to Italy, Nigeria, and South Africa if you pay for Registered Mail in addition to the shipping charges that appear in the Shopping Cart. In most cases, this will run around $16.95 USD in addition to the existing shipping charges. This is the only way I can be fairly certain that you will receive your package if you live in Italy, South Africa, or Nigeria. I reserve the right to insist on Registered Mail when I ship to any other country that I feel needs that additional mailing service so that it can reach the person who ordered it.
