Shipping & Returns
Domestic Orders: Domestic orders that receive our free shipping promotion will be shipped using USPS Priority Mail (free shipping offer excludes US territories). USPS Priority Mail is not guaranteed to be a 2-day delivery service. While advertised as a 2-day delivery service on the USPS site, some areas can take longer for delivery, along with other delays from weather, mechanical failure, etc. Other shipping methods with USPS and FedEx are also available upon checkout. Keep in mind that the USPS Express shipping method will require a signature upon delivery unless otherwise requested, so please be available to receive the package at the scheduled delivery time. If you choose an expedited shipping method, please note that transit times will not include Saturdays or Sundays. Example: If you choose an expedited next day/overnight shipping method and your order is placed on a Friday, your order will deliver on the next available business day being Monday (unless Monday is an observed holiday).
International Orders: International orders that receive our free shipping promotion will be shipped using Standard Worldwide Mail. Our standard mail option uses DHL eCommerce as a carrier, which uses DHL to ship the package to your country, then hands the package over to your country’s customs and then local post for final delivery. Other shipping methods such as DHL Express, USPS, and FedEx carriers will be available upon checkout. However, additional information may be requested by the carrier for customs clearance. Please keep this in mind and be sure to provide all the necessary documents and any other required information needed to properly clear your package through customs. We are not responsible for customs delays or clearance issues. Additionally, estimated delivery time frames for standard and express international shipping options are not guaranteed.
P.O. Boxes: DHL and FedEx Expedited/Express shipping methods do not support deliveries to P.O. boxes. Please use USPS or Standard Worldwide Mail for delivery to P.O. boxes.
Most orders placed before 2 pm CST will ship out the same day. Delays in payment or changes to orders may delay shipment. Orders are shipped out in the order they are received. Mail is not picked up on Sundays, nor does our fulfillment team package orders or print labels. Therefore, most orders placed after hours Saturday, and all day Sunday, will ship out Monday; unless Monday is an observed holiday. Many of our orders placed during business hours during the week ship out fairly quick; many within an hour or two of being placed. Please do not finalize your order until all the information is correct and complete. This includes product choices, shipping addresses (including an apartment, suite or building number) and shipping methods. Once an order has been shipped and handed over to the carrier, we do not have the ability to make any changes to the order, and we will not be able to stop the shipment once the package is in transit. Should we have the ability to intercept or make changes to a shipment after it has left our warehouse, it may incur an additional fee to be paid at the customer's expense.
We also do not have a system set in place to hold orders until a later date. As such, please do not place orders with comments requesting for them to be held until a later date. Our processes are in place to get shipments out as fast as we possibly can. Holds, changes, and cancellations are not guaranteed to be addressed before your original shipment goes out. Again, please make sure everything is correct, before completion. This will allow our team to do what we do best and get shipments out to our customers in a timely manner. Due to order volumes on the days our warehouse is closed, your order may experience an extra delay. Please note delivery is at the discretion of the carrier.
Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate local pick-up requests. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Customs Duties & Fees
The buyer assumes all responsibility for any customs duties or fees. Duties, taxes, and carrier brokerage fees will not be included in your order total during checkout. These fees will be assessed by the parcel carrier, not our company. Additionally, we will not refund or replace orders which are seized by your country’s customs. The buyer should be aware of whether a product can be shipped to their country before placing an order. If the package is held by customs or has been seized or destroyed, it is unfortunately out of our control. Bright Brain does as much as we can to mitigate duties and/or taxes imposed to customers by their local postal service or customs agency. However, some customers and/or countries may still incur additional fees despite our efforts.
International UPS, FedEx, and DHL Shipping
When selecting UPS, FedEx, or DHL as your private carrier for international shipments, there may be additional fees for customs clearance, and UPS, FedEx, or DHL may need to contact you to get permission to clear your items through customs. Please be aware of that, and provide UPS, FedEx, or DHL the information needed to properly clear and deliver your package.
