Shipping Methods & Rates

Crystal Couture Inc. (CCI) has chosen to use a flat rate system to calculate shipping and handling.

All USA packages will be shipped via USPS or UPS. Please refer to the shipping table below for a summary of your shipping options. If your order exceeds the parameters or guidelines we have outlined below, Customer Service will contact you to evaluate the most effective shipping method for your needs. 

 

 

Orders are shipped on business days only. In this case, business days are considered to be Monday through Friday, not including U.S. holidays. Orders placed on holidays, Saturdays or Sundays, will be processed in most cases the following business day.

The majority of orders are processed and shipped within twenty-four hours (not including weekends or holidays). Special efforts are made to expedite internal processing of 2nd Day and Overnight orders. Although we cannot guarantee same day shipping, you increase the likelihood if you place your order prior to 12:00 noon Central Standard Time. Most orders placed after 12:00 noon will be shipped the following business day.

A signature is required on priority and express shipment unless waived by the addressee. If you choose to waive the signature requirement, Crystal Couture cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen packages.

International Orders
CCI is pleased to ship International orders. Based on the fluctuating international rates we offer a variety of shipping options:

  • International First Class
  • International Priority Mail
  • International Express Mail
  • International Global Express


International shipping rates will be calculated by destination, weight and dimension and will be charged to our customer's credit card at time of shipment. USPS international orders are not our responsibility once they leave the USA.  Sometimes customs can take a day or two and sometimes they take several weeks.  If your package has not arrived, please contact your local customs office. We have no way of tracking it once it leaves the United States.  We recommend you purchase insurance and select a shipping option that includes tracking.

International USPS First Class, USPS Priority and USPS Global Priority shipping methods are not trackable. Therefore, if they are lost or damaged and insurance has not been purchased, we are unable to replace the order. For this reason, we recommend either purchasing insurance or using a different shipping method if you are not willing to take the risk.

 

Confirmation Emails
After checking out, you will receive an email with a copy of your order. When the product is shipped, you will receive a second email with your tracking information.
 


Order Status

Shipping confirmation with tracking number will be provided to you via email. Use the tracking number provided to track your package at www.usps.com or www.ups.com depending on the carrier you chose to use.
