Viva Oaxaca ships orders within 3 days of receiving them. We ship via the United States Postal Service. If the box is especially large, measuring more than 84 inches in combined length and girth, we may send it by Federal Express Ground service. FedEx is more suited for big boxes, but will take longer to reach the West Coast than would Priority Mail.
The shopping cart gives you real-time shipping quotes from the postal service, based on the origin and destination zip codes and the total weight of your order. Customers have the option of choosing First Class Mail (if the package weighs less than 15 ounces), Priority Mail (regardless of the weight), or Express mail (overnight) delivery. We can ship a handful of tin ornaments, or a light woodcarving, for as little as $4.50 using First Class Mail. The advantage of Priority Mail is that delivery is a couple days quicker, and the package comes with insurance on the contents. When you place your order on our website, you will receive a receipt by email. When we ship your package, you will receive a second email, notifying you of the shipping with the package tracking number.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: We ship worldwide. Due to recent problems with international shipping by the US Postal Service, we are currently shipping outside the United States only with Federal Express. We offer two FedEx levels, International Economy with delivery in 5 – 7 business days, and International Priority, with delivery in 1-3 business days. The cart will give you options and prices, depending on the combined weight of the products you have selected. Please note that you may be liable for an additional customs charge from your home country.
Need Overnight Delivery in the U.S.? On most days, we can also provide overnight Express Mail delivery if you place the order by 2:00 P.M. Eastern time. Please call us first to confirm that we are available that day to get the box to our post office. Dial 617-983-5075. Choose Express Mail from your shipping options pricing page.
