The carrier may make subsequent delivery attempts before returning the shipment to Brother.

Ground/Standard shipping typically takes 3- 5 business days to arrive but may take longer depending on volume and carrier limitations.1,2 You can upgrade your delivery method for a faster and/or more convenient experience for an additional charge.

Unfortunately, Brother cannot ship to international addresses. If you are an international shopper looking to purchase accessories and supplies for your Brother product, we invite you to visit one of our resellers located in your area. Because Brother is an international company, we work closely with our affiliated offices to ensure quality customer service in each country where our products are sold. Also, because we manufacture product based on the stringent electrical, environmental, and mechanical standards set by various government agencies, some products manufactured to US standard may not be suitable for use in other countries. If you are unable to find a reseller in your area or the item you are looking for, please visit our web site for the location of the Brother office in your country.
