Shipping & Mail Order Information
At The Movie-O-Zone we do everything in our power to keep our shipping costs down, while maintaining good, secure and protective packaging for all of your purchases.
Here at The Movie-O-Zone we gladly and proudly ship WORLDWIDE.
Shipping costs are calculated at the time of checkout by the automated shopping cart system, based upon your location, the number of items and final shipping weight of your order, and the shipping method you choose. You always have the opportunity to review this cost prior to finalizing an order.
The Movie-O-Zone cut-off deadline for Express Mail is 3:00pm (Pacific Time Zone) Monday through Friday. Of course, we accept Express Mail orders after that time - each and every day - but if an order is posted later than 3:00pm (Pacific Time Zone) we may not post it until the next business day. A signature is required for all Express Mail orders.
We ask that you allow up to five business days from the time you place your order until it ships (sometimes it will differ, depending on the items ordered). And we TRY to ship the same day or day after an order whenever we can. We also realize that the USPS is not processing or delivering at the pace they “used to”. That is just a fact. There is very little we can do about it, except, ask you to have patience.
When your order is placed we automatically send an email with your order confirmation. Please look for this information prior to contacting us. It may be in your spam or trash, if you have filters in place.
When your order is processed for shipping you are automatically sent another email (to the email address given on your order) with the USPS tracking information. If you don't find it, it might be in your spam folder, as it contains links. Please check in your email prior to contacting us regarding the tracking number - if the order has been processed for shipping - the USPS Tracking Number has already been sent!
July 9th 2023 USPS Rate Increase
On May 10th 2023, the United States Postal Service filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) of shipping services price changes and to establish proposed published pricing for its new product offering, USPS Ground Advantage. These changes are to take effect July 9th, 2023.
* What is happening to the prices?
The Postal Service is asking the PRC to review prices with some Shipping Services. The rate change request is part of balanced approach under “Delivering for America,” the Postal Service’s 10-year plan for achieving financial sustainability and service excellence. Shipping Services prices are primarily adjusted according to market conditions. The Governors believe these new rates will keep the Postal Service competitive while providing the agency with needed revenue. Even with proposed rate increases, USPS prices will remain among the world’s most affordable and a great value in shipping.
*Why are the prices changing?
As part of its 10-year plan to achieve financial sustainability and service excellence, the Postal Service is asking the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to review proposed increases to some of its prices of shipping services.
If favorably reviewed by the Commission, the proposed increases will raise First-Class Mail prices approximately 5.4 percent to offset the rise in inflation.

The PRC (Postal Regulatory Commission) will review the prices before they are scheduled to take effect, which is January 22, 2023.
*For our Canadians customers: while we provide you with the USPS Tracking Number at the time your order is processed for shipping, this number will be trackable only once the package has crossed the Canadian-US border through the on-line tracking services of CanadaPost.ca.
If you prefer to order by mail (with check or money order) please contact us - prior to ordering - so that we can give you an accurate cost (as a rule of thumb, the approximate cost will be: the cost of the item plus $4.77 per item S&H):
