USPS/FEDEX: Sorry SOS does
not ship C.O.D. All
orders in the continental United States and Canada are shipped
FEDEX ground or United States Postal Service (USPS) at the customers option and are FOB New York City. This means that once the items leave our dock, it is the agent (authorized by you as being USPS or FEDEX) who is responsible for the safekeeping of your package. Shipping rates are based on the weight of the packaged order, include marginal handling and packaging costs, and may include insurance/delivery confirmaton costs if applicable. USPS orders are
not guaranteed by a certain day, but USPS does indicate that Priority Mail does arrive in 2-3 days. Late deliveries cannot be reimbursed if this option is selected. You can use the tracking number that is sent to you (a copy is also in your account when it ships) to track your package on our website. During busy times, if you are on the West Coast or Midwest and have selected FEDEX GROUND, SOS may upgrade your shipment to PRIORITY MAIL at no extra charge to you in lieu of getting your products to you in time and to take advantage of their Saturday delivery. If you wish to OPT OUT OF THIS SERVICE, please indicate so in your order notes.
shipments (case of incense, bottles, jugs) sometimes arrive a day
apart and may incur additional shipping charges. Give the packages at
least 1 extra day to arrive before calling for a tracer.
Priority Mail usually takes about 2-3 days for delivery and FEDEX
orders depend on your zone. Please refer to the following
map for FEDEX transit times.
Canadian/International Orders: Please be aware that additional charges may be assessed or delays may occur by
customs at the border, including GST taxes and FEDEX brokerage
fees. We cannot estimate these fees or delays prior to shipping. United States Postal Service (USPS) tends to be more forgiving with brokerage fees and/or duties, however, as you can surmise, it is more difficult to track a package. Insurance is included, however, except for USPS orders UNDER four (4) lbs.
Postal Service: We offer Postal shipping only to insurable areas outside the continental United States. This shipping method incurs a $3.00
handling fee per order as it will involve additional paperwork. Priority Mail & First Class or Parcel Post Mail is available to Hawaii & Alaska. The following services are provided for domestic packages:
Express Mail: Estimated 1 - 2 Days
First Class Mail: Estimated 1 - 5 Days
Priority Mail: Estimated 1 - 3 Days
Parcel Post: Estimated 2 - 9 Days
For international orders: Express Mailฎ International 3-5 Days and Express Priority Mailฎ 6-10
Flat Rate USPS: Because of numerous customer requests, we are excited to re-offer on a trial basis flat rate USPS shipping in 3 sized boxes both domestically AND internationally. PLEASE NOTE: that the SMALL FLAT RATE PRIORITY INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES do get delayed, mis-routed, or even lost more frequently than the other sizes by USPS so you do select that option at your own risk. We cannot guarantee their service. We strongly encourage FedEx for these packages because we can support their guarantee of delivery and honor their claims.
The flat rate options will appear below the other options if your order complies with the following weight thresholds. Please be aware that even though the items may pass the weight thresholds, they may not fit the box, so the dimensions are provided to help assist you in determining an appropriate sized box.
Sizes:5-3/8 x 8-5/8 x 1-5/8 (SMALL - 2 lbs. or less) 11" X 8.5" X 5.5" (FRB1 MEDIUM - 7 lbs. or less)12 x 12 x 5-1/2 (LARGE - 12 lbs. or less)
Please use your judgement or call if you need assistance. Neither a bottle of oil (greater than >2 oz.) nor a bundle of incense will safely fit in a SMALL FLAT RATE BOX, even though it may pass the weight restrictions. It is simply too large for the box. The following may be helpful in your case: SMALL FLAT RATE BOX: Can fit around 12 x 1 oz. plastic bottles of oil.
MEDIUM FLAT RATE BOX: Can fit around 25-30 small 1 oz. plastic bottles or around 8 x 1 lb. plastic bottles or 11" incense bundles.
LARGE FLAT RATE BOX: Can fit around 60 small 1 oz. plastic bottles or around 12 x 1 lb. plastic bottles or 11" incense bundles.
Please note any restrictions if they exist on the product pages or your order will likely be delayed if an INappropriate sized flat rate box is selected for the size or quantity of items ordered. We would like to be able to predetermine what box every customer would need, but due to the endless combinations of weights and dimensions of products, we cannot. We are hoping that we can continue to offer this service on a permanent basis, so please use your best judgement when selecting USPS flat rate boxes, note any product restrictions if noted on the shipping pages and please do not hesitate to contact us if you are unsure if your order qualifies for flat rate shipping. Thank you!
Rush Orders: Choosing an expedited shipping method DOES expedite the transit of your item on the carrier, however it DOES NOT expedite your order out of our door.

Rush requests must be received by 12:00 noon on that day for same day fulfillment.
