Shipping Methods & Cost / How Long before I see my stuff?
For orders arriving from 🇺🇦Ukraine we now offer three methods of shipping which vary in cost and speed:
- FEDEX EXPRESS
- ECONOMY shipping (slower & cheaper)
The shipping cost depends on destination and items in cart – please check the cost in cart.
FEDEX EXPRESS is the fastest option – usually averages 7 days worldwide.
Please note that all FedEx Express is only available for products marked with🇺🇦
(shipped out from 🇺🇦Ukraine).
**Please note that although 98% of packages arrive within the estimates above, some may take longer due to recent COVID-19 related issues
ECONOMY SHIPPING is done by UkrPoshta.
This is the most economical shipping option, but all packages are shipping with tracking numbers.
Delivery takes 2-4 weeks*** for most destinations worldwide, all packages are trackable online.
***Please note that although most packages are arriving as scheduled(as of July 2021), some small fraction of the packages is delayed due to COVID-19.
I am from 🇵🇭Philippines – Shipping Methods / How Long before I see my stuff?
LOCAL ORDERS (for stock from our 🇵🇭Philippines warehouse) are shipped with 2GO or LBC (we choose the courier to optimize speed of delivery vs cost).
Packages are usually shipped out the same day if payment is cleared before 11am.
Delivery is normally on next business day for metro Manila & 2-8 days for provincial addresses*.
*Due to COVID restrictions in place.
**Although 98% of the packages are shipped out & delivered as expected occasional delays do happen and these are usually on the courier side.
We appreciate your patience & understanding.
The same day delivery via LalaMove available! Limited to Metro Manila only.
Please note you will only be charged the price shown in the app.
I am from 🇵🇭Philippines and ordering items from 🇺🇦Ukraine – will it be delivered to my house?
Due to PhilPost inability to efficiently process the international packages all INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (items marked with 🇺🇦) heading to Philippines are shipped exclusively by FEDEX Express.
Currently it takes about 7 days to arrive to Philippines. Packages are delivered door-to-door. Please note that last mile courier charges 577php delivery fee – that’s in addition to the shipping charged by sovietcamerastore.com.
CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE ///
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (items marked with 🇺🇦) shipped via ECONOMY SHIPPING arrive to Philippines to PhilPost, which does not deliver door-to-door. Packages are picked up by customers from their local PhilPost branch where 112php “handling fee” is charged upon pick up. No other fees are to be expected. Please note Philippines customers enjoy the lowest shipping rate of 150php per package flat.</em>
/// CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE
Once again due to COVID related delays, the only shipping options from Ukraine to Philipines is FedEx Express –
door-to-door delivery usually within 7 working days.
What Payment Methods Are Accepted?
Current payment options include BDO bank deposits, PayPal and credit cards.
Is Buying Online Safe?
As a general rule one needs to be cautious when buying from unfamiliar individuals, its best to look for reputable sellers who offer money back guarantee and value customer’s satisfaction over immediate profit.
