Please note that delivery time does not include Sundays or post office holidays.
Flat rate shipping on all orders:
USPS Priority ($8.00) 3-6 Business Days

USPS Priority International Shipping (Canadian orders $25.00, all other countries $60.00) 10-14 business days
Oversized items, such as wall décor, are more expensive to ship because they are heavier and/or bulkier than normal items. The drop-shipped items are delivered directly from our manufacturers, so a surcharge is applied to cover the vendor's shipping costs. Such charges will be clearly noted during checkout and prior to confirmation of your purchase.
We offer international delivery to over 60 countries. International orders are not guaranteed to ship the next business day due to additional verification that is often necessary. We usually email customers about international deliveries to confirm acceptance of duties and customs charges.
Currently shipping to Canada is $25, and to most other countries is $60. This is for 10-14 business days, and does not include customs charges imposed by individual countries. Please understand that Belly Dance cannot be responsible for additional customs costs incurred. International shipping rates are calculated based on the destination and final weight of package. We will email for customer approval if the international shipping rate is different than noted on site.
Risk of loss and title for merchandise shipped internationally will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Your order may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. You will be responsible for paying additional charges for customs clearance; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; please contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, when ordering from Belly Dance, you are the importer and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. You authorize us to designate a carrier to act as your agent with the relevant customs and tax authorities in the destination country, to clear your merchandise and advance (on your behalf) any duties and taxes owed by you.
If you decide to refuse any shipments from Belly Dance, you are responsible for the original shipping charges to you, any duties, taxes and/or customs charges that are incurred on the package (on both the original and return shipments), and the cost of returning the package to Belly Dance. This amount will be subtracted from your merchandise refund.
Once you have completed an order, we will email you a link that will allow you to track the status of your order. Once you receive that link and your tracking number, you can go to UPS to track your order.
