We offer several shipping options through USPS for packages shipping within the United States. The first being First-Class Mail® which can have a range in price depending on package weight and distance. It generally starts at about $6.78. First Class packages are generally delivered within 3-10 business days. The second option is Priority Mail + Rush Processing.

Our third and final option is the free shipping option which is for orders $50 and up. Please note that this option will go away if a coupon or discount is applied and brings your order total down before shipping is added.

Flat rate for Special International Handling and Priority Shipping

The USPS cost for Special International Handling and Priority Shipping can have a range in price depending on package weight and distance. It generally starts at about $49.25. This does not include taxes, duties, and fees that your country may charge.

 

Important information for first-time international customers

Import taxes: You may need to pay import taxes and/or customs duties assessed by your country. You may also be required to pay a brokerage (handling) fee for the shipment, assessed by your country. These charges are not included in the shipping charges you paid Red Apple Lipstick. Your country will bill you directly for any of these additional fees.

 

We have a secondary shipping option for Australia, Canada and the UK of “First Class” for $20

Through testing we’ve learned that First Class USPS shipping to these three countries takes a few extra days to reach our customers but is as reliable as the flat rate method for priority shipping.

 

Tracking your order

Once your order has been packed and a shipping label is generated, you will receive an e-mail with a tracking number. This indicates that your order has been prepared for shipment (this may take up to 72 hours). If you click on your tracking number as soon as you receive it you will not get accurate information. It takes the USPS approximately 24 hours to process your package and scan your tracking number into their system. Please allow 1 – 4 days for the tracking information to update. In some rare case, the tracking information may not update but you will still receive your order. If there is a problem with your tracking number or package delivery, please contact USPS, or your country’s parcel service, prior to contacting us. Please contact us after the estimated delivery time.

Customs information/Returned Packages

Red Apple Lipstick will not be liable for packages refused or held by customs for delivery. We request that you contact your customs office and ask about import regulations and restrictions before placing your order. It is important for you to become familiar with Customs policies for your specific country before ordering. Customs regulations differ by country and not knowing their regulations can result in your order incurring high import duties, the delivery being delayed or even returned.

 

Please Note: If your order is returned to us due to a banned/restricted products policy, a wrong address, refusal to pay customs fees, refusal to accept the order or because no one was there to accept delivery of your order, we will refund your credit card as follows: You will be refunded the total amount of the order, minus the shipping charge, and 20% of the value of the order, (as a re-stocking fee). We will also subtract any other outside charges Red Apple Lipstick has incurred during shipping, such as warehousing fees, return postage fees, etc.

 

If the cost to return the product to us is larger than the cost of the refund due, we will instruct the carrier to abandon the order and there will be no credit for the order. If the product(s) is seized by customs, there will be no credit processed for the product(s).

 

Refunds will not be issued until the returned packages are physically in our warehouse.
