The transit time for international shipments varies based on the point of export and the destination country or region. Allow for international deliveries to take between 9-24 days.

Contact your local customs office for details. Otter Wax is not able to influence local delivery practices. The arrival times shown for International shipping indicate the amount of time it will take for your order to reach your recipient's local post office.

All orders are generally fulfilled and shipped within 2 business days from the time of order. Customers have the option to select "Priority Mail" during checkout for an additional charge, which will upgrade the shipping method from Standard (3-7 days) to Priority (1-3 days).

We work hard to keep our shipping rates reasonable while still getting your items to you in the most efficient and reliable way possible, and we appreciate your understanding.
*International packages shipped using USPS cannot be tracked once they reach international customs, therefore Otter Wax will not be held responsible for any lost or stolen packages.
When we ship your order, we will send you a confirmation email with a tracking number. Please note that changes of address will not show up in the confirmation. Tracking numbers will take up to 24 hours to populate in the USPS computer system, so if the link is not yet active when you receive our email, please allow 24-48 hours for the system to update.
*International packages shipped using USPS cannot be tracked once they reach international customs, therefore Otter Wax will not be held responsible for any delay in shipping times. All delivery times are estimates, and may be either longer or shorter than indicated.
CHANGES TO SHIPPING ADDRESS
If you need to change your order or your shipping information, please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update your order. You can also contact us using live chat between the hours of 9-5 PST Monday to Friday excluding major holidays.
We may or may not be able to make the change, depending on how quickly you get in touch with us, but we will do our best. Please note, our system does not display updated shipping information in shipping-confirmation emails.
The USPS reuses tracking numbers. Within the first 24 hours or so after you receive your shipping confirmation, you may see that your item has already been delivered. Don’t worry, this is just outdated information from the last time that number was used. Your correct information should display after 24-48 hours. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if the issue doesn’t resolve after 36 hours or more.
