International and Domestic Shipping & Returns
International and Domestic Shipping FAQs:
Do you ship internationally?
High prices and unreliable delivery issues for all mail carriers are now the new normal. We cannot guarantee shipping times. Due to this, we are only accepting international shippable orders for those who understand the risks and accept responsibility for their orders. Once proof of shipping on our part can be supplied, our obligation to you is fulfilled. Please use the tracking provided to monitor the progress of your order so that you may intercede with the postal carrier if there are any customs or delivery problems. Refunds will only be offered for damaged products.
If you agree to the terms above, then follow the instructions below.
International orders that are download only items may be purchased directly through our online shopping cart. All other international orders cannot be purchased through the shopping cart as it is NOT capable of determining international shipping costs.
Our most popular shippable items can be ordered and shipped internationally through Amazon (see http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=%22frank+turek%22+atheist.) If what you are looking for is not listed, we will try to assist with locating the products through other suppliers. We may also create an online order for you to accept and pay for through PayPal. Actual shipping plus a $10 international order fee will be charged. The customer, NOT Impact Apologetics is responsible for paying duty or any costs associated with clearing the goods through customs. All international orders are no return/no exchange. An email with tracking information for your items will be sent. Please TRACK YOUR ORDER as once it is accepted by the postal carrier it is considered your property and the carrier will wish to communicate with you regarding any issues. In addition, any customs issue will need to be resolved by you and a delay may cause a return to sender.
If you would like to place an international order:
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of the item sku's (found in the item listing) and quantity you desire to purchase and include your name, shipping address and phone number to determine shipping costs. The resulting fees will be emailed to you for approval before a PayPal Invoice is created.
Do you ship to military personnel (APO/FPO)?
Yes, we're happy to serve those who serve us! All shipments to APO/FPO addresses are sent via U.S. Priority or First-Class Mail. We estimate 5 to 7 business days for delivery once the order has been shipped; however, some destinations may take up to 21 days.
If you require shipment to military personnel, place your items in the shopping basket and follow these steps:
1) On the Step 2 page, select the correct Armed Forces division in the Ship To State dropdown list (see guidelines link below for help with this).
2) On the Step 2 page, select Order offline as your Payment Method and complete your order.
3) On the Step 3 page, provide as much of the shipping information as you can. Make sure you include the unit and box numbers, for APO/FPO/DPO addresses (if assigned). To prevent mail from entering foreign mail networks, do not include city or country names in APO/FPO/DPO addresses.
You will not be charged for any items at this point. We will calculate the actual shipping cost and contact you by email (or phone if you provide that info) to confirm and complete the order. Or simply call us at (704) 243-0043 with your request.
