The shipping methods for Singapore are described below. If you're wondering exactly how much you have to pay for shipping, simply add items into your shopping bag and the charges will be calculated for you at checkout.

Highly Recommended - Opt for insured shipping method for peace of mind! Orders shipped via insured shipping are insured and trackable. You will be informed via e-mail when your order is being shipped so you can track your order.
Your order will be delivered to your doorstep so someone needs to be there to receive it. If nobody is there to receive the parcel, you can arrange for re-delivery (to a different address even!) If your parcel remains undelivered for some time, the courier company may contact you. Do update your contact number in your MOR account if you are opting for this shipping method!
