Customs Duties

Overview

Each country has its own laws and regulations for the import of goods into the country, which its customs authority enforces. A customs duty is a tariff or tax on the importation of goods. Customs duties are paid by the importer of the goods.

What to Expect

By purchasing goods from our shop, you become an importer of goods to your country. Once the goods arrive at your country, they are held in a customs area and a customs agent will contact you so that you may pay the required customs duty. If they fail to contact you or you refuse to pay the customs duty, your package will not be cleared and will be sent back to us. At that point, if you still wanted the item you'd need to pay for it to be shipped again. Under some circumstances we can offer a partial refund for packages returned to us.
