How much does shipping cost?
Shipping charges are as follows:


If you live in a country that we require shipping to via UPS or Fed Ex, Relapse is not responsible for any customs fees/brokerage fees that might be incurred by your shipment.

*If you live in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru or Argentina please read the important Note below.

Note: Customers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru and Argentina will not be able to use credit or debit cards for online shopping. Orders from the aforementioned countries will not be processed. Customers may use PAYPAL, but only if they are a verified buyer through PAYPAL. Any payments from unverified buyers will be immediately returned and your orders will be cancelled. Please use our Online Ordering Form (OOF) when ordering from Customers must use an International Money Order (IMO) or send cash in U.S. Dollars, although we do not recommend sending cash through the mail. It may be more costly and take longer to arrive, but if you are concerned about the safety of your payment, it is recommended that you send your payment via Registered Mail. First time international customers placing large orders may be required to provide additional documents to prove their identity before Relapse will process your order. Any information we require will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with any one for any reason. Relapse reserves the right to refuse any order we suspect of being fraudulent and is not required to provide you with a reason.

For packages being shipped to U.S. customers: Orders less than $40 are shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS) Media Mail. Orders $40 or more are automatically shipped via United Parcel Service (UPS) Standard Ground. All packages shipped UPS are automatically insured by UPS up to $100. If your package was insured in this way and is lost or damaged, you need to file a claim DIRECTLY with UPS to collect your insurance money.

All U.S. customers can insure their packages for an additional $3.

UPS will only deliver to street addresses (No P.O. Boxes, Prisons, or Military Bases).

The following prices indicate UPS shipping charges:
Standard UPS: $3
Rush UPS: $5
3-Day UPS: $10
2-Day UPS: $15
Next Day UPS: $20

Remember that normal shipping charges still apply.

A simple example is provided below:
Suffocation "Souls to Deny" CD: $12.00
First item, one item shipping: $ 3.00
Insurance: $ 3.00
Total: $18.00

Because this order is below $40 it will be automatically shipped via USPS Media Mail. If you were to choose to have your order shipped via UPS then you must add the appropriate UPS shipping charge to your order. For example, if you wish to have your item delivered via 2-Day UPS delivery then you would add an additional $15.00 to your order total.

Shipping Options?
All shipping options are in addition to the standard shipping charge per item. The 'day-specific' UPS options do not apply to weekends, or federal holidays (For example, if you order 3-day shipping on a Friday, you will get your package on Wednesday, not Monday!)

Important: All rush orders must be submitted by 3:00 pm Eastern Standard Time in order to be guaranteed to ship out that day. Any rush orders received after 3:00 pm are guaranteed to ship out the next business day. Any orders over $40 shipping to U.S. Street addresses (after normal shipping costs are applied) will be automatically shipped Standard UPS.

For most U.S. customers, a standard order will be processed and shipped between one to two days after payment arrival.

All foreign packages are shipped via UPS First Class World Bulk Mail, which might take anywhere from 7-10 days to 2-4 weeks (and sometimes longer) from the date shipped. Sorry, we have no special option or insurance available for foreign orders at this time. Once an international order leaves the Relapse warehouse we can not track it, and while 99% of the time our foreign deliveries make it to their destination in a timely fashion and in good condition, please remember you are ordering at your own risk and Relapse will NOT be able to reimburse you for or replace any items or orders that go missing or get damaged in the international mail.

Relapse Records is NOT responsible for any customs, duties or taxes incurred on your shipment. You are responsible for paying these fees if required by your countries customs agents.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?
This really depends on a few different factors: order method, where you live, whether you elect to pay for extra shipping options, etc. A typical order for in stock items being shipped to a U.S. address normally takes from a couple of days to two weeks – often less, sometimes longer. Foreign orders will take anywhere from 7-10 days to 2-4 weeks (sometimes longer) for delivery.

Backorders / Pre-Orders
Backorders are held for two (2) months. If the item does not become available after that time, the order will be cancelled. Your credit card will not be charged until the backordered item comes in and the order is filled.

If an item that has to be backordered is paid for in advance with cash, money-order, check or Paypal and the item does not come in, the overpayment will revert to in-house credit with Relapse, NO REFUNDS will be issued. TIP: When making orders online using Paypal, please list alternate items in the notes/comments section of the on-line order form if you do not want items backordered and want a substitute item sent instead. Do this for any item you select that is listed as "call for availability" or "only a few copies left". Please make sure the item(s) you list as alternates are the same price as the items they might replace, and that these are items you will be satisfied receiving. Note: If you order any additional items with a backorder or pre-order, the in-stock items will ship as soon as possible, and the backorder/pre-order will be shipped as soon as it becomes available.

Backorder / Pre-Order Shipping Breakdown:













If you do have an item on backorder or pre-order, the shipping total from your initial order will change to reflect these additional shipping costs. If you no longer want the backordered item, please contact MAILORDER @ RELAPSE.COM as soon as possible to avoid order fulfillment.

How can I use credit towards an online order?
If you would like to use credit towards an online order and you are using a credit or debit card, simply place the order as usual, but use the notes/comments section of the order form to indicate that you have credit you want to use towards the order. While your e-store total will show the total amount for the items, we will manually deduct the credit from the total before charging your card. If you are using PAYPAL, it is only slightly more complicated. Place your order as usual and use the notes/comments section to indicate that you would like to use credit. Make note of the total after shipping, but instead of rerouting to the PAYPAL payment screen, close out/finish the order, unpaid. Deduct the credit amount you have from the total of the order and then go to and send a payment to in the amount of the total minus the credit. Use your order number as a reference number for your payment, so that when we get your payment, we know what it is for.

I live in a foreign country and my package hasn’t arrived yet! What can I do?
Not much unfortunately. Relapse is not able to track or insure any foreign orders, so once they leave our office there is nothing we can do. Sometimes foreign orders get held up in customs, or returned to us because of address problems. Returned orders can be re-shipped, but if a foreign order does not come back to us we cannot compensate customers for lost orders. Foreign orders are at your own risk! RELAPSE DOES NOT ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOST FOREIGN PACKAGES!

What happens if my order does not arrive or if something is missing from my order?
If this happens please contact us via or by calling 610.734.3711 for U.S. customers or 610.734.3710 for international customers. Please include all order details in your email or have them ready if you call.
