Shipping is based on shipping method, package weight, package size, as well as your location. Falling Bricks prefers to ship via United States Postal Service (USPS) Priority Mail.  Minimum shipping cost is $1.00 via USPS 1st Class Mail.

Cost of insurance is based on the dollar value of the shipment. Some shipping methods such as USPS Airmail Letter Post are not insurable. Domestic insurance may be provided by a 3rd party insurer through Stamps.com and will not be reflected on the package. Insurance is the responsibility of the buyer.

6. OK, I placed an order… what do I do next?

Your next step is to wait for me to respond to your order, usually within 24 hours. Once you place an order, BrickLink automatically sends you the buyer and me the seller a confirmation e-mail. This e-mail details the items ordered, your method of payment, and the buyer and seller mailing addresses. Once I process your order, mark the order READY and initiate an invoice, BrickLink sends you the invoice via e-mail. The invoice contains complete payment instructions.

7. How do I pay for my order?
  • PayPal and PayDirect: E-mail payment to the account address provided. A 'click-able' link is included in the invoice for PayPal payments.
  • Money Order, Cashiers Check, or Cash: Mail payment to the seller address listed on the invoice e-mail from BrickLink. Please notify me when you send payment; I'll be on the look out.

Payment is appreciated within 1 week of receiving the invoice e-mail. I generally send out gentle reminders after this period. Negative Feedback NPBs will be initiated after a few weeks if I receive no response.  After receipt of payment, I will mark the transaction PAID and provide positive feedback Positive Feedback .

8. When will my package arrive?

Upon shipment, I will mark the transaction SHIPPED and send you a shipment notification e-mail. Domestic packages are generally shipped the next day. International shipments may take a few days because they require a trip to the Post Office.

International shipments via Surface Mail can take up to 6 months. Please note that most International delays are caused by local customs officials.
