Announcing a new international shipping service -- starting at $3!

This is a pretty big update to our available shipping methods.

Muscle & Strength is now offering First Class International mail service through the United States Postal Service. We can now ship any package under 4 pounds around the world for a fraction of the cost. This service isn't available for orders over 4 pounds, unfortunately, and that's one way how shipping costs are kept so low.

While you won't be able to ship any weight gainers or huge tubs of protein with this service, you can buy practically anything that comes in pill form or a small tub.

That includes:

- Multi-vitamins
- Pre-workouts
- Creatine
- Fat Burners
- Fish Oil
- Protein (everybody sells a 2lb tub!)
- Protein Bars
- Glutamine
- BCAAs

You get the idea. ANYTHING under 4 lbs.

Here are the shipping quotes to Australia for my new favorite pre-workout SuperPump Max:

FedEx
International Economy $66.54
International Priority $80.77

USPS
First Class International $15.92
Priority Mail International $33.60

Or, if you wanted Jack3d instead, heck, make it t 2 tubs of Jack3d = shipped for $14.20.

Need a multi-vitamin? Get an Opti-Men sent to the UK:

FedEx
International Economy $36.02
International Priority $45.18

USPS
First Class International $7.32
Priority Mail International $29.50

Want to buy the current Deal of the Day, Roxylean and live in Australia? Check this out:

FedEx
International Economy $66.54
International Priority $80.77

USPS
First Class International $3.12
Priority Mail International $28.75

Just so you know it's not a typo: $3.12. That's cheap shipping.

Now, with such a cheap service, there are a few things you should know. It is a good service that the post office offers, but it's kept so low for a couple of reasons. You already know about the restriction of 4lbs, but you also should know that this does not have tracking services. Honestly, the Priority service that USPS offers doesn't have very reliable tracking either, but this is guaranteed to not have tracking.

Secondly, packages will take about 1-3 days longer to arrive with this service when compared to USPS Priority International. Packages will take about 7-14 business days to arrive in Canada, UK, and Australia, and 10-20 days most other countries. Just for a reference, FedEx takes about 2-5 days.

Lastly, if a package is not received, we cannot issue a refund. We don't add that condition because shipping this way is unreliable, it's not, it's very reliable, it's just that we can't verify if a package was delivered or not because of the lack of tracking services. It's extremely rare that a package is lost, well under 1%, but in the rare case that your package is lost we have no way of verifying whether or not it actually arrived. This is why we can't issue a refund.

The cheap shipping costs of this service greatly outweigh the cons. If you need something small and can afford to wait a week or two for it, this is your shipping method.
