With your registration and account options you can select between Standard or Priority Shipping.
Standard shipping is by National Postal Services (USPS, Canada Post, DHL, Royal Mail, La Poste, Poste Italiane, Australia Post, etc.). It is pretty reliable for all countries that we serve and it is very reasonably priced. But outside Europe, mainly in the U.S.A. (USPS) it is rather slow. Standard shipping is our default and our recommendation.
If you cannot wait and if money is not your concern, you can opt for Priority Shipping. It is fast and convenient. But it costs you an arm and a leg, especially outside Europe. Priority shipping is not available for Germany.
On your request we hold your purchases from several auctions back up to 6 months and ship consolidated when you ask us to do so. We calculate the consolidated shipment as one order. If you want to use this service, please change your account to Consolidated Shipping = Yes.
Consolidated shipping is not applicable for Tibetan art products (carpets, thangkas, statues) and Chinese paintings.
We ship for free if the total value of your purchases is above $3,000 - no matter which sizes or which destination country. And if all your prints have shipment class SX (circa 90% of all Japanese prints) the limit for a free shipment is $1,000.
|Zone||Average Delivery Time Standard||Minimum for Free Shipment Size SX||Minimum for Free Shipment Large Sizes|
|North America||5-20 days||$1,000||$3,000|
|Asia, Australia, Africa||5-15 days||$1,000||$3,000|
Minimum values are calculated as the totals of all hammered prices plus commission, but without VAT (where applicable). Total value may be accumulated over several auctions (HOLD option) up to 6 months.
Free shipments are not available for Priority Shipping. The shipment class of an art object is shown with the catalog descriptions.
When you want us to ship your accumulated orders on hold, you can release them from your account. Please select Orders and Invoices, next select from the drop-down menu Request Shipment of HOLD Orders, next check the orders you want us to ship and click the button Ship checked orders.
