Namse Bangdzo Bookstore shipping charges are based on the weight of your order, our website gets shipping costs directly from the USPS (United States Postal Services) website and from the UPS website. As soon you go to "view cart" you can make a choice of shipping method and it will show you the shipping charges .
Tracking information can be obtained by going to "My Account / Order Status" and then choose "Review Orders / track packages." Tracking information is only available if your order was shipped by UPS or USPS Express Mail. Other shipping methods do not provide tracking.
Media Mail is the cheapest way of shipping books, video, DVDs, CDs, cards etc. Please do not use this shipping option if you add non-media items to your order, e.g. pendants, prayer flags and so on. Please note, this services can be slow, and very unpredictable.
We do not recommend using this service for customers living in California, Washington, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Estimated shipping period can be over 2 weeks. We will not ship media mail to Alaska and Hawaii, it takes ages to receive the order. We really had some bad experiences.
* Parcel Post, similar to media, except here it is allowed to ship non-media items. A lot of times the difference of the cost of shipping parcel post and priority mail is minimal, priority mail is much faster.
* Priority Mail is our preferred way of shipping, it is fast, reliable and reasonable priced. If shipping charges are more than $9.50, and your order fits in one of the flat rate boxes (11 x 8.5 x 6 inch or 13 x 12 x 3.5 inch), we will use one of these flat rate boxes and will charge you the flat rate of $9.50.
* Express Mail, next or second day delivery, depending on location and the time at which the order was placed, this is the only USPS service that provides a tracking number.
By default we use the postal services for international shipping.
* Airmail. If you order fits in a Priority Mail International flat rate envelope, a regular sized book will fit, and the calculated charges are more than $12.00, we will ship your order in this flate rate envelope and will charge you only $12.00, even though the calculation on the web was higher.
First Class International (Airmail Letter), choose this option for letters and packages below 4 lbs.
Priority Mail International (Airmail Parcel), for packages of 4 lbs or more
* Surface Mail, or called economy mail, on longer available.
The advantage of shipping by UPS is its tracking capabilities and UPS can be cheaper with heavier packages.
UPS Ground, the most economical method to ship UPS.
UPS 3-Day Select, a faster way of shipping by UPS
