International Shipping

CITES Regulation of Blackwood and Cocobolo

On January 2, 2017 African Blackwood (Dalbergia Melanoxylon) and Cocobolo (Dalbergia Retusa) were listed on Appendix II of the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). It is now strictly regulated worldwide with a system of licenses and permits.

Export and import license requirements and costs vary from country to country. At this time the validation and re-export process prevents us from shipping Blackwood or Cocobolo products outside the Unites States.

International Delivery Time Estimates

International orders are usually shipped via Express Mail International or Priority Mail, so you should look for your order in 6-14 business days.

International Shipping Rates*

Shipping charges are based on order values, in most cases — see Other Charges and the chart below. If your order total exceeds $999.00 or if it includes multiple boxes or oversized packages, we will need to quote the shipping charge. In those cases, we will contact you with the price, so you can approve shipment or change your order. We do not guarantee worldwide delivery unless UPS is used. They provide portal-to-portal detail and ensure higher accuracy in delivery than typical mail service. If we deem that an order requires guaranteed services in which an adult signature is required, the cost of such a service may exceed the online charge calculated for the order. In such a case, you will be notified so you can approve shipping charges or cancel your order.
