* buyers' tip ... Express Courier is a more secure option for countries where the domestic mail service is not reliable

 

How much does it Cost?

The freight cost is based on the parcel weight, and is adjusted in 100gram increments up to 2kg, then in 500gm increments above 2kg up to a maximum of 10kg.

To estimate your shipping cost follow these simple steps:

  1. add products & and go to your MiniZoo shopping cart
  2. click 'estimate' on the shipping line & add your country, state and zipcode
  3. click 'estimate shipping'
  4. choose your preferred shipping option

You can continue to add or remove products & experiment with the shipping cost by repeating the above process.

* buyers' tip ... It is often cheaper to send by EXPRESS courier once your parcel is over 2kg!!

 

Can I Track my Parcel?

Yes! You will receive an email when your parcel ships containing your international tracking number.

* buyers' tip ... Once your parcel has arrived in your country you can also track it through your local postal service or other international mail tracking sites. For example, USA customers can use https://www.usps.com/
