Why We Charge for Shipping
We know shipping cost is an important issue. Shipping is always a cost.
Some companies hide the cost of shipping in the price of each item.
Some companies will quote low prices and then charge exorbitant
handling fees in addition to the actual shipping cost. The shipping
charges on our site are the actual shipping charge plus a $2.00
packaging fee which covers the cost of the box and packaging. Shipping
costs are based on the weight of the products ordered. Postal service
shipping charges include insurance and delivery confirmation.
We ship with United Parcel Service (UPS) or the US Post Office (USPS).
We recommend UPS since there is limited tracking available with shipments
through the Post Office. We will notify you by email concerning the
status of your order and shipping updates. In the unlikely event that
your shipping does not calculate correctly, we will email you with the
correct shipping charge for your approval before shipping your order.

Shipping to Canada
Your shipping options are UPS Standard to Canada or Priority Mail International. Compressed gas, cream chargers or seltzer/siphon chargers, CO2 or N2O can only be shipped by UPS Standard to Canada.
UPS charges a brokerage fee for shipments to Canada. The fee is based on the total dollar amount ordered and is shown in Canadian dollars. The maximum you can have in your shopping cart is about $17.00 to not be charged a brokerage fee.
Brokerage fees are estimated as follows but may change at any time:
ca$0 to ca$20.00 order = ca$0 fee
ca$20.01 to ca$40.00 order = ca$7.00 fee
ca$40.01 to ca$100.00 order =ca$19.45 fee
ca$100.01 to ca$200.00 order = ca$29.00 fee
ca$200.01 to ca$350.00 order = ca$41.50 fee
ca$350.01 to ca$500.00 order = ca$46.60 fee
The brokerage fee is due upon delivery and is not included in the shipping charge.
Also, there may be duty and taxes due upon delivery. The only way to know the exact amount would be to contact your local customs office. Returns for refusal of duty and taxes will not be accepted.
