Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii & Canada
We usually ship US Postal Service for deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. Although it would be great to utilize flat rate boxes, seaweeds are generally light and fluffy and often do not fit well in the fixed-size boxes. Thus the most cost-effective way of shipping is almost always by weight, which is the cost shown at checkout. Occasionally, if it is better, we may use UPS for some deliveries.
Shipping to all other foreign deliveries
We ship, or will attempt to ship, anywhere in the world. We prefer to ship using the US Postal Service, depending on actual location, and may use UPS for some deliveries. We charge our actual cost for shipping plus a $10.00 handling fee for these orders. The webstore will calculate your shipping costs based on the shipping weight and your location. Your product may ship by surface mail which could take up to 4 weeks. Please remember, this does not harm the product. Shipping cost becomes less per pound as your order size increases, so it pays to order more! We only accept MasterCard, Visa and Discover for foreign orders.
What kind of packing materials do you use?
We use the most environmentally friendly materials available, including recycled and reusable cardboard boxes. We shred office waste for use as packing material. We do not purchase Styrofoam peanuts, but will re-use those we unavoidably come across.
What is your "August Annual Shut-down"?
Due to the harvest and market fluctuations, we shut down every August through Labor Day. We generally stop taking orders around the third week of July, so that we have time to pack and ship everyone's order out. Our last day for taking orders, as well as our reopen date, will be posted on this website's main page sometime in June. If you would like to be informed of our closing date ahead of time, please contact us.
