Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why is the $99 Introductory Astronomy Kit given an initial shipping & handling charge, and then an additional amount  added on as s&h charge?


Why is the $99 Introductory Astronomy Kit given an initial shipping & handling charge, and then an additional amount  added on as s&h charge?

CCNow, our credit card service, will currently allow us to charge only one shipping rate for all orders. For most of our Shipping  & Handling, we use the current Priority Mail Flat Rate envelope, including delivery confirmation.

We do all our AstroMax business on one account with CCNow, and the Priority Mail Flat Rate works great for most small packages that we ship. However, for the binocular and telescope kits, there are additional packaging, postage costs, and processing fees due to extra weight and other factors. So we include an additional amount to cover these costs.

It can be confusing, but that is what we have to do right now with the credit card service we use.

Overseas Shipment of the binocular and telescope kits is also very expensive. We normally change $15.00 for air mail postage on overseas orders. But again, due to the extra weight and cost of Air Mail for the binocular and telescope kits, we must charge an additional $25 to your order, for a total of $40, for overseas shipment of these items.
