Mertailor ships worldwide using UPS and USPS. With a few exceptions, we can get your Mertailor items shipped anywhere you want them to go!
All Mertailor products are made to order. Orders are processed within 24 hours of receipt and added to the respective manufacturing schedules. Estimated manufacturing times vary and are noted on each individual product page on the website. Orders placed for multiple items that have different manufacturing times will be shipped when all the items on the order are complete. Please base your delivery date on the item with the longest estimated manufacturing time. Choosing an expedited method of shipment will reduce the time your package is in transit, but it will not expedite manufacturing times.
Manufacturing times are estimated and can vary. We are sometimes ahead of schedule and can ship early. However, planning on worst-case scenario will almost always avoid disappointment. On rare occasion, due to unexpected spikes in orders or circumstances outside of our control, shipment of orders may be delayed beyond estimated manufacturing times.
If you have waited a little too long to place your order and have concerns it may not arrive on time for your vacation or event, please contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Whenever possible we will make every effort to accommodate your request.

*While we do offer USPS mail services, we do not recommend the use of USPS for international shipments for high value packages. Tracking information is intermittent and often stops completely once packages leave the US. Returns are initiated without notice and shipping charges for packages returned by USPS as undeliverable or unclaimed are not refundable. Claims for loss can be lengthy and unsuccessful.
**USPS First Class Mail is not insurable. Choose this option at your own risk. Mertailor will not assume responsibility for losses experienced when choosing this shipping option.
International Shipments and Import Fees
Shipping charges paid at order placement do not include import fees. Customer is responsible for payment of all import fees, duties, taxes, and any third-party handling fees. Import fees must be paid by customer to the carrier before final delivery of package. Import fees are typically based on the value of the merchandise purchased and vary for each Country. Merchandise values will be accurately reflected on the commercial invoice which is required for processing your international shipment.
Refusal by customer to pay assessed fees will result in the return or abandonment of shipment. Packages will not be approved for return if return shipping costs exceed the value of the merchandise. Return shipping costs are often higher than those paid to have the order shipped. Any eligible refund will be forfeited for abandoned packages. Refunds on returned packages will be reduced by shipping costs and any other fees incurred.
Please familiarize yourself with your Country’s import fees structure and policies to avoid unexpected surprises at delivery.
