We ship almost everything by USPS Ground Advantage Cubic or by Priority Mail Cubic, whichever is the least expensive option. Priority Mail is fast, but Ground Advantage is very close in delivery speed and always cheaper. We normally ship the least expensive way unless you are in a hurry and let us know. We do not add a penny for handling. We refund any overpayment on shipping as soon as the box is packed.
You can save quite a bit on shipping when you order more than one item. Use the chart below to see what shipping would cost compared with the small flat rate box a single student unit or hand specimen would ship in. Use your zip code to find the shipping zone.

For single items, the software will try, but it may overcharge slightly. We will refund any shipping overpayment as soon as the order is packed. Neurons over chips any day.
