Shipping Policy

JAN-STIX SHIPS ONLY TO US ADDRESSES Over 3 billion people in the world use chopsticks. And most of you will have to wait for your Jan-Stix! Until we can determine what tariffs are applicable for international shipments, and what freight charges will be applied, we cannot accept Jan-Stix orders for delivery outside of the United States. We want to bring Jan-Stix to the world! We will be rolling out Jan-Stix distribution on a country-by-country basis. We will advise you of any changes in this policy with updates on our website and social media sites. January 2016 update:  For estimating purposes, International USPS shipping rates are about $60 for our 1-4 pack and $78 for our 12-pack (slightly less for Canadian locations). Any tariffs, while unlikely, would be determined by the destination country. These additional charges are rather high compared to the selling price of our product. We would be glad to work with local agents who would be willing to distribute our product overseas. PACKAGING Jan-Stix ships in reusable corrugated cartons, with only enough packing to secure and protect our product while making it easily accessible to the consumer. If you choose to dispose of your packaging please recycle, if possible. We want to do our part to preserve the environment. Every Jan-Stix can replace over three thousand pair of conventional wooden chopsticks! In order to minimize your shipping charges (and lessen the chance of a lost carton) we make every effort to ship in the fewest number of cartons possible. Our “individual” carton will hold from one to four Jan-Stix. We also have “dozen” and “gross” cartons. For customers ordering 5 to 9* Jan-Stix, or two or more dozen packs, we will attempt to bundle any individual cartons into a single “mother” carton, which may require additional packing to be used for a secure shipment. SHIPPING, HANDLING AND TAX Delivery charges for every shipment are prepaid and added to the invoice before shipment. Jan-Stix adds a nominal handling charge with each order, typically $10.00 for each individual package (of 1-4 units), $12.00 for each dozen carton, and $30.00 for each gross carton. This is less than the actual cost of shipping, order processing and packaging for our product. EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 2015--FREE SHIPPING FOR QUANTITIES OF FOUR OR MORE! Current US tax law requires that we collect state sales tax only for shipments to states where we have a physical presence--in this case, only Pennsylvania. New legislation is being considered which might require state sales taxes be collected for every state. Jan- Stix will comply with all Federal statutes that are applicable when your product ships. DELIVERY PROVIDERS Jan-Stix ships primarily via United Parcel Service (UPS). If you have a preferred carrier please notify us when placing your order and we will strive to honor your wishes. * You can get 12 Jan-Stix for the price of 10, (or 12 dozen for the price of 10 dozen) so why order only 10 or 11?
