  • The following information should be provided by foreign customers who are paying with credit card:

    - complete name (as it appears on the card)
    - credit card billing address (This can not be different from shipping address)
    - telephone/fax number
    FOREIGN ORDERS MAY BE ASKED TO VERIFY AN ARBITRARY CHARGE TO THEIR CREDIT CARD PRIOR TO ITEM SHIPMENT TO VERIFY VALIDITY OF CREDIT CARD.
    This may delay shipment a few days.

  • We recommend Priority Mail to protect your goods against loss or breakage which might occur in transit. If you decide on First Class Mail, a proof of mailing showing the package was received by our Post Office will relieve MECOA - K&B of any liability for lost or damaged merchandise.
  • *MECOA/K&B's only obligation for lost or damage of uninsured packages will be to provide the customer with proof of mailing showing acceptance by the U.S. Post Office. This confirms we did mail it at our end. You agree to have no recourse against MECOA/K&B if you do not receive the package.

  • NOTE: Since mail service has changed from Air Mail to First Class we have had packages take up to and over a month to reach customers. This is not the norm but it does occur.
  • Insurance claims for loss or damage to foreign countries will be the obligation of the customer. MECOA/K&B will provide the customer documentation and assist with the required procedures with the US Postal service. Other than that the claims process is out of our control and the responsibility of the customer. Our only obligation for First Class Mail is proof of shipment as mentioned above. Under no circumstances may the customer withdraw payment in the form of a charge back if MECOA/K&B provides them proof of shipment.
