Hello !

... and welcome to Mail Boxes Etc, Bocas Del Toro!

As of the beginning of August 2017, several important issues have
arisen and we ask all of our clients to click on the below
links, and to please read the associated News releases:

The shipment of COSMETICS to Panama has been BANNED

WE NO LONGER RECOMMEND using our service for the
shipment of items for HUMAN OR ANIMAL CONSUMPTION


THE CUTOFF FOR CUSTOMS is LESS THAN $100

We also encourage our many clients using Amazon and
Amazon Prime
to read our description of
Using Amazon with our Service and Amazon Invoices


Also, please remember that the shipment of
Tobacco and Tobacco related products.
including Nicotine Vaporizers is prohibited!

Please see our list of Prohibited Items for more details!
It has been suggested that I post this prominently on our website, so here it is

The cost of using our service is (at least) $20 per kilogram,
which is about $9 per pound


Let me say it again.

The cost of using our service is (at least)
TWENTY DOLLARS PER KILOGRAM,
which is about NINE DOLLARS PER POUND

I am putting this up because it sometimes happens that new clients
somehow manage to sign up for our service, and utilize it, then come
into the store and act surprised when when we give them the bill and
refuse to pay it, sticking us with the costs of shipping items nobody
wants to Panama!

Please be aware, especially first time users of the WEIGHT
you are shipping via our service. A kilogram equals 2.2 pounds.

You are obligated, once you sign up, to pay us for any items that you
ship via our service!!
Please do not ship a 50 lb package to MBE Bocas
then say you were not aware of the costs involved !!!

WE HAVE TO PAY TO HAVE THE ITEM SHIPPED TO PANAMA
before you ever come to pick it up, and your failure to understand
the costs involved, and potential failure to pay us, could result in legal
or other unpleasant actions and bad feelings on everyone's part.

So, please be aware of the service we provide and the costs involved,
and please use it wisely!
