Prices shown are without tax (VAT). For orders from outside Canada the price shown is identical to the price you pay. Your local customs office should then add VAT as applicable for your country.

It happens frequently that customs does not look at a shipment sent via normal post or does not charge any fee but that is fairly random and out of our control. Be happy when this happens but don't take it for granted.

Where is Tuxgraphics?

Tuxgraphics is at the moment on the east coast of Canada. See contact page for details.

For European customers it might be quite common to pay via direct bank transfer . You can pay with direct bank transfer (direct deposit into our German account, Überweisung).

We offer also the possibility to ship with express. Express has shorter transit times and is is trackable door to door.

Greece: The current economic crisis in Greece seems to affect the local distribution of mail adversely. 5 weeks or more seems to be the norm. Please consider using express if you need timely delivery.

What size is a standard packet?

95% of the orders are shippend like this Most orders are sent out with the normal post as "small packet". These small packets have usually the dimensions 24cm x 20cm x 4cm (9.4inch x 7.9inch x 1.6inch). The exact type of packaging depends of course on the on the number of products ordered. A standard order with 1-3 ethernet boards, a programmer and some sensors will however fit into such a packet.

We use double packaging to make sure the products arrive save. Inside is a cardboard box and this is wrapped in tear resistant packaging paper or a large envelope. All packaging materials are recyclable.

It's good if your letter box is capable of holding such a package as this will enable postman to deliver it safely.

Some postal services will leave the packet on your door step in case it does not fit and you are not at home. This is OK if you live in a good area. If your letter box is too small, you live on a busy street and there are many different people passing right along your doorstep then consider using trackable express shipping.
