It depends on the particular seller or store. Please search for the product that interests you and then inquire about shipping from any of the sellers or stores.

To set a price alert, please click "Set Price Alert" at the top of the page listing all the sellers of that product. You will be asked to specify the price at which you would like to be alerted. If you are not logged into your Nextag account (or have not registered for an account), you will be asked to provide an email address to receive the price alerts.

Please click on the "Delete Price Alert" link in the price alert email. If you have an account with Nextag, you can also delete a price alert by logging into your account and clicking "Edit Your Price Alerts".
