Some products containing lithium batteries are unavailable to our international members because of shipping restrictions implemented by couriers or customs agencies. Factors that determine if a product can be shipped include:

  • Battery size

Please note: Due to customs restrictions, products containing lithium batteries can’t be shipped to members in Germany and Italy.

Shipping items containing hazardous materials requires the use of a courier that’s certified to transport such materials. These couriers are more expensive, because they require proper certification, additional labeling, and documentation. Couriers impose additional fees for this service.
