If you’ve shopped with us in the last couple of weeks, you may have noticed a new shipping option — DHL. Because we always have the best steals in mind, we added DHL to make sure you can get the cheapest shipping too. We send joy in the form of thousands of packages each day, and you can rest assured that no matter the shipping option you choose, joy always ships ASAP! We have seen a few questions about DHL, so we thought it was prime time to fill you in on all the details.

What is DHL Smartmail? DHL is an express shipping company and a division of Deutsche Post. You can read more about them here.

Why did we start offering DHL? DHL’s shipping prices are often lower for packages under 1 lb., so we wanted to pass on the savings to our customers.

How much longer does it take? Shipping with DHL generally takes 1-2 days longer than USPS Priority/First Class.

If I need my package quickly should I choose USPS Priority/First Class or save with DHL? If you need it quickly or are simply are too anxious to wait for your steal, opt for USPS options. Otherwise, you may as well save money for more steals with DHL!

Why don’t I always see DHL as an option? We only offer DHL on days when products weigh under 1 lb., but in the future we may offer the option for higher-weighted items as well.

Does DHL ship to Canada? Currently we only offer DHL shipping in the United States.
