We sell a lot of different items here at Shoppy Vista. Because of this, each item and its shipping times and costs can vary compared to other items.
SHIPPING FOR OUR FREE + SHIPPING OFFERS
We have many FREE + SHIPPING offers where we offer our products free and the customer just pays a small shipping/handing charge to send the item. These shipping times and costs vary based on the location of where the items are being sent to. Almost all our items will be shipping from our international warehouses in Asia.
Why are you offering free items?
The items are free because of a special promotion to launch a new product or because one of our suppliers wants to test how popular their items are before computing a price. Take note... these free items won't be free for long! If you see a free offer - snatch it up before we start charging for them.
Why is the Shipping so high on a Free + Shipping Offer?
It's not really high, if you think about it. We could charge you $7.95 for the item plus a shipping amount to make the costs exactly the same as the final shipping cost. These items come straight overseas from our warehouse, to your door. They are made with heart and skill. The items are picked and packed from the warehouse, labels are printed and then the items get on a plane, then goes through customs, and gets processed through your local postal system. It's an expensive journey!
How long does it take to get an item shipped?
This depends on the location of our warehouses and where the item is going. As stated, almost all our F+S items come from our international warehouses. It takes time to send overseas to USA, Canada, UK and Australia plus our other locations. Expect our FREE +SHIPPING offers to arrive in 3 to 6 weeks. Delays beyond our control can happen when items land in your country and go through your customs inspection. Again, we cannot control how long it takes once your item lands in your country of origin. We've seen it take 3 days and we've seen it take 3 weeks. Just know... you will get your item. If for some reason it does not arrive within the 4 weeks we expected, contact us. Items can get lost in the mail, and we can talk about getting a replacement item out to you if it went missing.

MULTIPLE ITEMS ORDERED MAY COME IN SEPARATE PACKAGES
Many people who order multiple items from our store, will have those items fulfilled by multiple warehouses in Asia or the USA and will most likely get those items in separately mailed packages. This is due to logistical reasons, where items may not all be in the same warehouse or city. Each package will have a tracking number so you can track each item from dock to door. Most of the time, these packages will arrive on different days, sometimes a few days apart, or even a couple weeks apart.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A TRACKING NUMBER?
Once a package is made ready to ship, it's given a tracking number and imputed into our international shipping system online so you can track it from dock to door. Tracking number is usually given before the packages are picked up by the trucks and may take 3-7 days before the tracking number's show up online to track. Just check back in 1-3 days and see if the tracking story is updated. If you don't see a tracking story after 5 days, let us know, as we can see what's taking place and get you more information.
If you have any questions about our shipping policies, times, or prices, feel free to contact us and we'll do our best to explain things or even help locate your packages if you've been waiting for too long or lose your tracking number.
