International Shipping

We ship to your country! Unless you live in a country that is embargoed by the Indian government. Everywhere else is groovy.

Most international shipments will incur additional fees in the form of duties and taxes. These fees are your responsibility and are in addition to the shipping cost we charge at checkout. See Duties and Taxes below for details.

For all international shipments, we charge a $2 handling fee plus the shipping estimate from the carrier.

Please Note – First Class Mail International packages are NOT insured. In the case a package is lost or damaged in transit, SparkFun is not responsible for replacing the order.

International Economy

Mokioki’s International Economy Shipping option, also known as FedEx International Mail Service (FIMS), is carried by FedEx to your country, then handed off to the local postal service for delivery with standard mail. This shipping option will deliver to PO Boxes. Shipping time varies greatly depending on destination. Delivery is usually made in 2-4 weeks but can take as long as 6 in some cases. Only allowed for orders up to INR 20000 in value. The economy is not an insured shipping method. As such, Mokioki is not responsible for replacing the package should it be lost in transit. There is no tracking available for this shipping method.

Duties and Taxes

All duties and taxes for international shipments are the responsibility of the customer. Mokioki is not responsible for any extra charges once the original package has been shipped. We can’t tell you exactly what the charges will be, but here’s a duty calculator to help with estimation.

If the customer refuses to pay these extra charges, the return shipping and any additional fees will be taken out of the cost of the order with any remaining funds being refunded to the customer. In the event that the extra charges exceed the value of the order, we may charge those amounts to the credit card originally used for the order.

Export Restrictions

As mentioned above, we are not able ship anything to any address in the countries of Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Beyond that, we also sell some items that are known as “dual-use items”. These are products designed for civilian use, but that could be used for devious purposes in the wrong hands. The rules vary by item, but we’ll be in direct contact with you if we need further information. Please read our Export Compliance page for general information, and contact Customer Service if you have further questions regarding an item and/or its destination.

Signature Requirements

International shipments’ signature requirements vary by carrier and destination. If you have questions regarding your particular shipment, contact Customer Service.

Using your own FedEx/UPS account

Want to bill shipping charges to your FedEx or UPS account? Add your shipping account to your customer profile. Once verified by our customer support team, you will be able to select the account during checkout.

Please note: Your contracted rates may vary greatly from ours. The shipping estimate you see at checkout has no relation to what you will eventually be billed. Please do not enter your FedEx or UPS account number unless you are absolutely certain you want to ship on your own account instead of ours.
