The BlueFly varios are shipped from Canberra, Australia. Normally they are shipped within 1 to 3 business days. Most of the time orders are packed at about 7am local time and dropped at the post office in the afternoon. If it will take longer than a week to ship your order then expect an email describing the reason. You will receive a completed order email notification when your order is shipped.
Please make sure your Shipping Address is 100% correct as it will be copied to the shipping label.
The default shipping option is Free Shipping and it is included in the price for all products (except for assembly services). If you want any of the other form of shipping please include it as part of the checkout process.
International Shipping Options
Update 26 May 2020: International shipping from Australia has been heavily impacted by COVID-19. Please see the Australia Post website for the latest information. As a consequence the Australia Post Economy Letter service used for free shipping is not available at the moment, and the delivery time for other Australia Post services has been extended. DHL Express is recommended for most destinations – it is reliable and quick.
Australia Post Economy Letter (Free | No Tracking) (cost $0 to any destination worldwide). This uses the Australia Post International Economy Air letter service. The vario is packed to be less than 20mm thick and can therefore be sent as a letter when using standard Airmail. I have shipped many varios using this service and is generally reliable to most destinations (please see the note below on which countries it is not reliable for). The Australia Post International Economy letter service is not tracked. Most of the time it takes three to eight weeks for international shipments or around a week for Australian shipments. I will send you a photo of the package on request. If addressed correctly then the package will eventually arrive. For a few countries I have noticed that this service has taken over two months, and in some cases much longer. If you want your vario shipped to the following countries please consider selecting something other than Free Shipping: Brazil, Columbia, Russia, Turkey, South Africa.
- Australia Post Standard Parcel (cost $13 to $28 for up to 250g). The Australia Post Standard International Parcel service is generally a little quicker than the International Economy Air used for free shipping, and to most destinations it is tracked end to end.
- Australia Post Express Parcel (cost $28 to $44 for up to 250g). The Australia Post Express International Parcel service uses the global EMS system for delivery. It is tracked end to end and normally takes less than a week.
- DHL Express (cost $28 to $70 for up to 500g). DHL Express shipping is the fastest service and for most of the world takes one to two weeks. It is tracked end to end and customs clearance is normally a smooth process. It is possible that when preparing your order for shipment we will discover that DHL will charge an additional Remote Area Delivery fee and I will contact you for options.

Please use the Australia Post Postage Calculator to calculate shipping times for your destination. However, note that the fine print says that this estimate does not include any time taken in customs on departure or arrival. You will be responsible for any customs related matters in the destination country.
