We have a variety of shipping options available depending on how large (by volume and/or weight) your order is and where it is being shipped. You can obtain a more relevant list of what is available for your order—as well as shipping cost estimates—in the shopping cart before you make your purchase.

Please see the General Overview above in this Shipping Information area of our Customer Service section.

  • PRIORITY MAIL (Flat Rate Box – MEDIUM)

IMPORTANT NOTES about 2- and 3- day USPS delivery
You cannot choose 1, 2, or 3-day Priority Mail delivery. The scheduled delivery day is determined by USPS and considers your package’s origin and destination. Additionally The USPS Priority Mail Service delivery day is still not guaranteed. Please visit USPS for more information on their shipping service.

IMPORTANT NOTES about USPS Flat Rate boxes
Monterey Bay Spice Company has been excited to be able to offer this service for qualifying orders since Spring of 2011. Please note that unfortunately this option IS NOT available on all orders. Many of our products are too voluminous to fit into these Flat Rate boxes. If available you will see the Flat Rate boxes as options for your order during the checkout and in the shipping estimation calculator.


  • UPS Ground
  • UPS Standard
  • UPS Expedited Options:
    • UPS 2 DAY
    • UPS 3 DAY

IMPORTANT NOTES about UPS Shipping Days
UPS expedited orders received before 1PM PST are shipped the same day. Any express shipment received after 1 PM Pacific Time will ship the following day. Additionally UPS does not count either Saturday or Sunday as shipping days. It also does not count THE DAY THE PACKAGE SHIPPED as a "shipping day".

IMPORTANT NOTES about Canada via UPS (Extra Fees)
If you are having an order shipped to Canada via UPS be aware of the fact that UPS will be collecting fees above and beyond the total of the order you placed with Monterey Bay Spice Company. They will collect taxes, duties and a UPS brokerage fee. These fees must be paid directly to UPS before they will deliver the package to you. These fees will be large. As a rough estimate expect to pay about 40% of the total order that you placed with Monterey Bay Spice Company.
