Most high-demand items ship from our Georgia, Michigan, and California-based warehouses, however, urgent orders and large quantity items are stocked and fulfilled from our headquarters in Taiwan. Shipping from Taiwan is rather quick and seamless, perhaps even more efficient than from US-based Amazon or other 3rd party warehouses. We use expedited freight forwarders like FedX and UPS, so the shipping time from Taiwan is not long at all. The lanes between Taiwan and the United States are quite active, so freight moves daily between the two countries. Plus, with the time difference, we can process your order immediately and have it in transit while you sleep. In terms of pricing, we only charge the domestic transportation fee, so your price is not affected by international shipping rates.
