The Restless Mouse Co. Shipping prices, times, and philosophy.
Our usual routine is to get orders out the door the same day if we get it by about noon Pacific, sometimes afternoon orders get a second run. We ship via the US Postal Service; objectively, reliability is close to 100%, they aren't perfect but we just can't afford the rates that the other carriers charge for small volume shippers. (I also have a problem with them charging me more than the next customer, even if I bring it to their office.) But I digress.

International shipping is calculated by weight- sometimes it is off by a few dollars. Here's how we handle that;
- If the postage we charge you is less than what it costs us, we "eat" the difference.
- If the postage we charge you is more than $2 over actual postage, we will refund the difference, but only if you ask. (Normally it's in the ballpark anyway.)
- We ship FCMI (First Class Mail International) - We will ship it using a faster rate if you pay the difference, keep in mind that it's incredibly expensive on overseas orders.
I hope that clears things up. Email or call with any questions. Comments and suggestions are welcome! – John
