Shipments to Freight Forwarders:
Please email us prior to ordering at firstname.lastname@example.org if your order is being shipped to a freight forwarder to let us know that you’ve read, understand and agree to our terms outlined on our website regarding shipments to Freight Forwarders.

*PLEASE NOTE: APPROVAL OF OUR TERMS IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO THE SHIPMENT OF INTERNATIONAL ORDERS*
Please copy the list of terms shown below and paste them into an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you understand and agree to our terms (please include your name that’s on the order). Otherwise, we will send you an email requesting this information which could delay the shipment of your order.
- Contact Information: You’re responsible for supplying us with your current email address and phone number on your order so that you’ll promptly be able to respond to any emails or phone calls from us, your customs office or your post office. If this information hasn’t been provided on your order, please email it to us so it can be added to the Customs paperwork we need to complete in order to ship your order.
UPS Notifications: You’re responsible for keeping track of your order’s delivery progress and setting up notifications from UPS. You’ll receive an email from us with your UPS tracking number within 1 business day of ordering. After your package reaches the UPS distribution center (usually within 24hr) they’ll scan it and then you’ll be able to set up your notifications. Once your package is in the system, please follow these steps to set up notifications from UPS:
Go online to ups.com. Click on “Tracking” > “Tracking & Tracking History” > Enter your tracking # > Click on “Send Updates” > Click in 1 of the 2 circles:
#1) “For All Your Deliveries” – This allows you to become a UPS My Choice member to receive automatic updates about this delivery and future deliveries (this is free).
#2) “For This Delivery Only” – This allows you to receive automatic updates for this delivery only.
Then you’ll be able to enter your email address or phone number in order to receive email or text notifications regarding the progress of your package while in transit.
Customs Duties/Taxes/Charges: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping and handling cost. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. If you want to find out what these charges will be, please contact your local customs office prior to placing your order. Usually within 24hrs after your package reaches the UPS distribution center, Customs will indicate on your tracking that “Duties or taxes are due on this package”. Please follow their online instructions regarding how to pay (this should be done within 48hrs). After your payment is processed, you’ll usually receive your package in 4-5 days.
Returned Packages: You’re responsible for paying the Customs fees for your package within the required time period per your Customs office’s policy (contact them for this information). Failure to do so will result in your package being returned to us (which they will charge us for). Once we receive your returned package, you can request a refund for your order, but you will not be refunded any amounts for shipping charges in either direction. Or, if you decide to have your order re-shipped, you will be responsible to pay for the shipping charges in both directions (for returned shipment and re-shipment) prior to your order being re-shipped. Also, if your post office is unable to deliver your package to you for any reason (incorrect address provided, etc.) and returns it to us, the same 2 options as above will apply.
