Why is shipping so expensive?
I live in Canada and unfortunately the shipping rates are quite costly, especially within my own country. The cheapest I can send a pony to the US is $8.25 and overseas is $9.75 (via airmail to Europe). In Canada, it depends on the region but for me to send a pony to someone in the same town, it will cost around $9.
What does HOLD mean at the beginning of a listing?
If HOLD is at the beginning of the listing, it means that someone has expressed interest in the item and I am holding it for them until payment is received or a trade is finalized. The item is not currently available for sale.
What shipping methods are available to the US?
The cheapest shipping method available is airmail which is $8.25 (for packages up to 250 g), $11 (up to 500g) and $16.25 (up to 1kg) to all 50 US states. This does not include insurance or tracking. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive.
The other option is Tracked Packet for $16.75 (up to 250g) , $17.50 (up to 500g) and $20.25 (up to 1kg), which includes both insurance and tracking. This takes 4-7 business days to arrive.
Anything over 1kg (2.2 lbs) will have to be shipped via Expedited parcel. This method is region specific so you would have to email me for a quote. Smaller accessories thinner that 2 cm can be shipped as a Light Packet starting at $3.
What shipping methods are available to Canada?
I usually send parcels via Expedited through Paypal shipping as I receive a 25% discount via this method (which is passed on to the buyer).
Smaller accessories thinner that 2 cm can be shipped as an oversized letter starting at $1.50.
What shipping methods are available overseas?
Parcels will be shipped via Small Packet Air. Prices depend on which region of the world you are located.
Smaller accessories thinner that 2 cm can be shipped as Light Packet which is $5.50 for up to 100g (anything weighing more than that will be cheaper to send as a parcel).
I do not usually offer this because it can take up to 2 months to arrive, but Surface shipping is available and cheaper than airmail especially for heavier items. I will only offer this to trustworthy buyers.
