Ordering on scoutstuff.org
We accept orders from anywhere in world. 

Shipping within the United States includes APO/FPO addresses and Puerto Rico. Items may be shipped by a variety of carriers, generally of your choosing when you place your order. 

When shipping to International Addresses there is the likelihood that your packages will be subject to customs fees and import duties of the country to which you have your packages shipped. You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance are your responsibility; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, when ordering, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Customs forms for all international packages list the value of your order's contents. 

The risk of loss and title for all items ordered on scoutstuff.org passes to you when scoutstuff.org delivers the merchandise to the shipping carrier. 

The amount of tax charged to an order will be calculated based on the shipment destination's state and local sales-tax laws. 

Our current payment procedures are American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. We reserve the right to change our billing and payment procedures at any time by posting the new procedures on the Site. 

We ship the items your order as they are available. We make every effort to send all items together, though we cannot guarantee it. Please note that we may send your items in separate boxes and from different destinations. However, this will not affect your shipping charges. 

While we do our best to ship your order within 3-business days of of receipt, we cannot guarantee that all orders or all items in an order will ship within 3-business days of your order receipt due to inventory fluctuations. In such cases, we will notify you when items are out of stock or on backorder. You will also be notified as back ordered items are shipped. 

Because we begin processing your order almost immediately after you place it, is difficult to change or cancel an order once you submit it.
