How long does it take for orders to be delivered?
It depends on where you are shopping. If you buy from Amazon Prime, it takes only 2-3 days to arrive to our US warehouse, but orders from China take much longer. Once we receive your order at our US warehouse, it will take 10 to 15 days to arrive to you.
Do you charge sales tax on orders?
We do not charge sales tax on orders from Amazon, eBay, Walmart, BHPhoto, NewEgg, Best Buy and a few other websites. We have to collect sales tax on orders from websites who do not accept a resale certificate from our company. Save sales tax by shopping at one of the retailers listed above!
What do you mean by combining orders?
If you have multiple confirmed orders, you can now select them all and checkout one time. You can save on shipping because the more you ship the lower the shipping rate will be. If you have 10 orders weighing 30 LBs, you can checkout at one time and pay only $6 per LB in this example.
What is the minimum weights?
The minimum weight of processed orders is 0.50 LBs and the minimum weight to ship an order is 1 LBs. If you have 2 small orders each weighing 0.50 LBs, you can combine the orders and pay only 1 LB for both orders. If you only ship 1 order weighing 0.50 LBs, we will charge you 1 LB.
What does LBs (pounds) mean?
1 LB equals 0.453 KG and our minimum for order shipments is 1 LB. You can combine orders to avoid this minimum.
What is dimensional weight?
All international carriers base their shipping rates on the greater of Actual Weight and Dimensional Weight. Actual Weight is the weight of the item when put on a scale and dimensional weight is based on the size of item. Large items that have a low actual weight relative to their size, like pillows or a canvas paintings, will result in a larger dimensional weight. Dimensional Weight is calculated by multiplying the dimensions of the item. Length multiplied by Width multiplied by Height, then dividing that total by the “DIM Factor” of 166. So, the formula is: Length x Width x Height (inches) / 166 = Dimensional Weight (chargeable pounds). (1 Inch equals 2.54 CM)
What do the order statuses mean?
Pending: When you submit a new order and it is awaiting processing by Boombeene staff.
Processed: Order has been processed by staff and awaiting your confirmation.
Confirmed: Order has been confirmed and paid by you.

Arrived USA: Order has arrived to USA warehouse, awaiting shipment.

Arrived: Order is ready for pickup at your requested branch.
Delivered: Order has been picked up.
Why was my confirmed order refunded and a new order created?
When we refund a confirmed order, it is most likely due to the incorrect weight entered during processing. Our processing staff can make mistakes when calculating order weights so our USA purchaser confirms the weight before purchasing. If the weight is incorrect, we will refund the order and a new order will be created with the correct weight. You will need to confirm the new order for us to purchase it.
What if a confirmed order is out of stock?
If you confirm an order and it becomes unavailable by the time we purchase it, we will refund the order completely and the money will go back to your balance.
What if I don't like something I purchased?
All sales are final. We do not have the option to return orders to sellers unless we are at fault.
Do you offer discounts?
Our shipping rates are variable and get lower with the more weight you ship. We also offer a business membership that offers lowered shipping rates.
