Bup Labs ships to many countries in the world. The list of countries we ship to is listed below. If no shipping options are available for your country, it means that we currently do not ship to that location.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) First-Class service is usually the lowest cost option. When using this service the USPS hands the package off to a 3rd party after it leaves the US. This service includes tracking and insurance. Please note that the tracking often stops when it reaches the distribution hub and resumes when it reaches the destination country postal service (i.e., Royal Mail). Delivery time using this method is between 7 and 21 business days from the date of receipt at the USPS.
Carrier calculated shipping costs are also available using DHL and UPS. This method is typically the fastest and most reliable but also the most expensive. Delivery using this method is almost always less than 7-days.
All shipments are sent as FOB Destination. Simply put, this means the buyer assumes responsibility for their purchased goods when the item tracking shows it has been delivered. This includes customs holding facilities.
The list of supported international shipping locations are shown below. Destination countries and zones may be added or removed at Bup Labs sole discretion. Reasons for removal may include Government restrictions, a history of excessive tariffs or duty charges, or other conditions which make delivery to the country impractical or unreasonably expensive for the customer.
Import duties, taxes, and brokerage fees are not included in the product price, or shipping and handling charges. All import fees are the buyer’s responsibility.
Duties or taxes for international customers vary by country and locale. National tax authorities, and the local jurisdictions, apply various tax laws and fees when receiving imported goods. These are fees that must be settled to receive the item from the carrier.
Due to the complexities and sheer number of variations involved, we cannot calculate the duties and taxes that may apply. You can check the amount required for your country at Simply Duty. Our products ship under HS Code 871499 (8714.9 Cycles; parts thereof).
We provide cost estimates using various shipping options that cover the cost of transit. Bup Labs calculates some shipping costs based on the service selected at checkout. This charge is the cost for the item to transit from our location to yours. Depending on where you live, and the service used, there may be other broker fees, customs charges or local duties required at pickup or delivery. We cannot estimate custom charges and duties in advance, due to the complexities involved.
By using the shipping charge amount we provide, along with the duties estimated by using SimplyDuty, you can determine the 'fully landed cost,' which is the total amount you will need to pay to obtain the product.
Broker fees are charges by the international carrier imposed by the company responsible for the transit. The 3rd party broker is not known to Bup Labs at the time of shipment and is assigned by the carrier. If a broker is involved, they can add charges to the delivery sometimes as high as 100% of the price of the goods! If you are being asked to pay $35 US for a $40 product, you are being charged a broker fee, not a customs fee, and you should protest the fee.
Shipping via DHL or UPS Express avoids broker fees. All broker charges are included with the shipping cost. Customs tariff charges are NOT included but should never exceed 5% of the price of the goods!
By placing an international order (shipments outside the United States of America) the buyer is responsible for abiding by their country’s laws, regulations, and restrictions. It is the buyers sole responsibility to obtain applicable information regarding their country’s laws, regulations, and restrictions. If the product is seized and destroyed by customs, we will NOT be responsible for any losses incurred.
We do not refund shipping charges. Any shipping charges for replacement parts are not included. The cost of shipping will be subtracted from any refund amount due.
We do not refund, or provide relief for, taxes, custom charges, or duties related to the shipment and recovery of your product order. In the event of an exchange, you will be responsible for any additional duties or customs fees necessary to collect the replacement item.
We ship all international orders with a tracking number and insurance.
