Announcement regarding COVID-19 and shipping

UPDATE 23.6.20: While the German Postal Service is still not offering goods shipments to the US, I found an independent carrier that forwards packages to USPS, and I will be using them for now.
So shipping to the USA will be resumed, but I will have to collect some orders to ship them in bulk to keep the shipping cost at the current level. Meaning I will have to hold orders for around a week or two, before I can hand them over to the carrier.

Sadly shipping to Australia is still not possible. Every carrier I checked out has astronomical shipping cost, so I have to wait for the Postal Service to ship there again.

UPDATE 30.5.20: The German postal service is able to resume most of its international shipping of goods again.
But due to limited staff, or slower transportation means, the delivery time for international order goes up to around 4-5 weeks.
Sadly, the USA and Australia are still not included and I can’t ship items there.

Due to COVID-19 the German postal service has paused or restricted international delivery of goods as of 27.3.20.
Until further notice, I am not able to ship to the USA, Australia, and a few more regions. Shipping within the EU is mostly unaffected.

I will hold any purchased items that I am unable to ship until the restrictions are lifted. Affected purchases have the option of a full refund.

You can read more about in the official German Postal service FAQ:

International items may be subject to delays or restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These may be caused by changes in transport procedures (e.g. border controls), changes in international transport (e.g. cancellation of previously used flight connections) and/or changes in delivery procedures in the destination country (e.g. quarantine or other protective measures).”
