If your question is regarding...
Please read this list before contacting us. If your question is still not answered and you need to contact us, scroll down to bottom to our contact us form link.
1) I can't login and/or the password recovery doesn't work!
When you originally created your account, did you use social login like Facebook, Google, PayPal, etc? If so, you need to login again using that social login. We can't recover the password in this case because the password is set my your social login site, not on our site.
If you didn't originally use social login like Facebook, etc, we have a password recovery link.
If it still doesn't work, it's possible you may have registered multiple accounts at some time in the past and they are conflicting with each other.
So if you originally signed up with social login like Facebook, please try usign that to login first. In case either your social login or password recovery doesn't work, please contact us and we'll fix you up.
2) I can't checkout! I hit the "Place Order" button at checkout but nothing happens!
- When you see this it usually means some of your shipping and billing address is missing. Make sure you see a "shipping" method to choose from (1st class, EMS, etc). You may want to create an account if you don't have one.
- Your credit card may be failing.
3) Where is my order?
If you would like to know the status of your order, or track providing you chose a shipping method which had tracking, simply click the link at the very top of the site which says "Order Status." You will need the order number and the email address you used to make the purchase.

Will you reduce the declared value of my parcel so I can save on import duties?
Once upon a time, we would do that. Unfortunately, we cannot do that anymore for a number of reasons. In the case of EMS, there is insurance involved and if the parcel becomes lost they will only cover the amount declared. It also requires a lot of paper work to re-make invoices, and there are various thresholds of customs duties throughout the world that we cannot possibly keep track of. If a customs official is even remotely suspicious, they will return the parcel on the spot (especially in Germany and the EU) which will cause both you and us a lot of headaches later. We do understand your pain, but unfortunately we cannot reduce declared value of parcels. If you order and leave us a note in your order asking us to do this, we will "most likely" not do that.
You wish to add additional items to an already placed order
If you used a credit card, it's possible for us to add additional items, but only if you wish to add then within a relatively short amount of time from your initial order. If you used PayPal as your payment method, we cannot from our end add additional items, you will need to place an additional order from your side. In either case, the easiest way to add additional items is to...
- Place a second order
- Contact us immediately afterwards (by scrolling down to the bottom of this page) and let us know you wish to ship additional items together with your original order
- We will then refund the additional base shipping charge.
- Note: We are very fast shippers so if you place a second order there is a good chance we may have already shipped your first order and won't be able to combine.
Product Specific Questions
We're glad you asked! As of November 2015, if you navigate to any product page, there is a "Ask a question" link - please click on that. We will not only answer your question (if it has not been asked yet), it will remain on the site for other customers to view.
We focus on direct-to-consumer sales. Our prices are currently priced as low as we can price them which seldom, if ever, (well, never) leaves room for wholesale pricing. At this time we do not our products wholesale and we do not answer inquiries regarding wholesale.
If you have a specific question that we have not been able to answer, your order needs adjustment, etc...
