READY-TO-HUNT COMPOUND BOW PACKAGES
International Ordering Guide
Yes! We ship to international destinations. If you are interested in placing an order to a destination outside the United States, please read this guide carefully.
Almost everywhere. We service most international destinations via the US Postal Service. If the US Postal Service ships to your country, then WE ship to your country. Of course, the rules aren't the same in every country. Please visit the USPS Index of Countries to see applicable restrictions (max sizes, values, rules, banned items, etc.).
Almost everything. Everything except our very largest items (large targets, very heavy/bulky items, etc.) are available for international purchase and can be shipped worldwide. Be advised that some items are restricted/banned by foreign governments.
Doing business with our Canadian neighbors is a little simpler than other international destinations. Canadians may order online or by phone without any significant restrictions. We have made special arrangements with FedEx International Economy/Priority to offer exceptionally good rates into Canada. In most cases, the FedEx service is the best option - although USPS services are also offered for shipments to Canada. Of course, you will have to pay applicable import fees (GST, PST, Brokerage Fees, etc.) upon delivery. Hunter's Friend DOES NOT LEVY OR COLLECT FOREIGN TAXES. We play no role in Canadian tax matters. Contact your local taxing authority for estimating your costs to import archery equipment.
No. However some of the international guidelines apply. Packages sent to APO, FPO, and DPO military zip codes still require customs forms and are subject to certain mailing restrictions. The US Postal Service limits package size and weight to some destinations. Military mail orders may take anywhere from 7-30 days to arrive, depending on the location, conditions, and military mail system cooperation. While most common orders (bow packages, custom arrows, accessories, etc.) will process normally online and ship without any drama, be advised that we must evaluate these orders on a case by case basis. We will contact you if an APO/FPO/DPO order requires additional attention.
Generally, no. International orders require a little more work. We serve nearly 200 countries and territories around the world, each with their own set of rules, restrictions, and guidelines. There simply isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for them all. To serve our international customers best, we need to personally handle each order on a case by case basis.
Most of our international orders are arranged totally via email. Due to differing time zones and different languages spoken around the world, most orders go more smoothly when conducted via email correspondence. International order inquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, shipping address, and a detailed description of the items you would like to purchase. Please be patient. We receive many requests for international quotes and they take some time to properly prepare.
It depends. Shipping rates vary by destination, insured amount, package weight, and package size. Our most popular items, of course, are our Ready-to-Hunt Bow Packages which come standard in a large 49"x7"x21" box (Hard-Case Option). This large box, when allowed, usually costs between $75 and $150 USD to ship internationally with USPS. If you choose the smaller/lighter Soft-Case option, your order can be packaged in a much smaller box (approximately 40"x5"x15"). This often saves significantly on the cost of transportation. Please note that the United States Postal Service restricts the maximum allowable package size to some locations (Australia & South Africa in particular). So the Soft-Case is the only available option for some service types/areas.
Yes! Once you have submitted your order details, we will create a pro-forma invoice for your review (.jpg or .pdf format) and return it to your email address. All quotes are good for 30 days. If your pro-forma invoice and all order details are correct, we can proceed to payment and finalizing the order.
International orders are generally paid via bank wire-transfer (electronic transfer) or with a major credit card (most locations). When you receive your pro-forma invoice, you will also receive complete instructions and a secure paylink for executing your payment via credit card (if that option is available).
Probably, yes. We do not charge international customers any American (sales) taxes, but your purchases are likely to be subject to import fees and taxes in your country. Be advised, Hunter's Friend DOES NOT LEVY OR COLLECT FOREIGN TAXES. We play no role in foreign tax matters. Contact your local taxing authority for estimating your costs to import archery equipment from the USA.
Absolutely not! This is clearly illegal, so please do not ask. Our company policy, as well as USPS and FedEx policy strictly prohibits the falsification of international shipping/custom documentation. All international orders are invoiced for the actual amounts and are properly declared and insured for the protection of all.
In a business like ours, nothing seems to run the red flag up the pole faster than those words. This is not our first year in business. If you are planning to request (multiple) high-dollar items to be paid via credit card and express shipped to the South Pacific, don't bother wasting your time. Credit card fraud is rampant in some areas of the world ... an issue we are acutely aware of. High risk orders must be prepaid via wire-transfer ONLY. If you are ordering from a high-risk region, your salesperson will instruct you on how to proceed with your order.
