International Shipping Update

by Imoto Arcade

Update Jan 2021: There is a new ~25% Tariff on all USA imports to EU that affects pinball machines and parts purchases. To learn more about how the tariffs affects pinball, check out the PinballNews.com Article: https://www.pinballnews.com/site/2020/11/12/eu-imposes-pinball-tariff/

Fedex Rate Changes: 

We are pleased to announce we have recently expanded our partnership with Fedex and iGlobal delivery services. This results in drastically reduced international shipping charges and includes delivery with all duties and taxes paid. Also, there are expanded express options that can offer shipment directly to your door. This new program is operating in Canada, Australia, and multiple areas of Europe – 200+ countries around the world. Compare your new rates to your old rates!

For faster delivery times, Use “Fedex International Express”.  This option gives you 3-7 day delivery, paid duties and taxes, and full tracking visibility.

Please note, international orders CANNOT be changed once submitted. 

Most orders will be finalized, packed, and shipped the same business day that they are received. Please make sure that your order is accurate before you submit it.

Additions or changes to existing orders are not possible. They will be treated as separate orders and will incur their own shipping fees, duties, and taxes.





The checkout screen has several payment options. Click the green “OUTSIDE THE US CHECKOUT” button. A new page prompts you to select your country. Enter your address. The screen will populate all of your international shipping options.
It’s that easy!

by Imoto Arcade

Which EOS switch do you need, and what is an EOS switch for? Click “Read More” at the top right to read more.
