Custom Fees/Duty Charges: Please note that we are NOT responsible for custom duties or taxes incurred. These are the responsibility of the buyer. Please ensure that you are aware of your countries importation and tax laws before purchasing. Items that are refused by the customer and are shipped back to us because of failure to pay import fees/VAT/taxes are not subject to a refund.
Incorrect Shipping Addresses: Please ensure that the address provided at checkout is the CORRECT shipping address. We are NOT responsible should and items be shipped to an incorrect address. If the item is returned back to us, the buyer is responsible for all return shipping fees.
Items Shown as Delivered but Not Received: If your item is tracked and has a delivery scan but you have not received the item, please contact us and your local post office immediately. USPS has a tendency to mark packages as delivered a day or two before actually delivering the item. So please hold tight for 1-3 days post "Delivery Scan" as it will most likely show up within that time period. USPS also will hide packages if they deem the area unsafe. Check flower pots, window wells and overturned garbage cans, we've seen it all! If your package shows as delivered and all the above solutions did not produce the package please contact USPS directly to see if they can do a GPS track of the package. Although we insure all packages, unfortunately once the package is shown as DELIVERED, our insurance will not cover the package. Please ensure your location is secure to receive packages. If it is not, we highly recommend sending the package to a safe drop location or another address that is more secure. We can not cover loss or theft of packages if they are shown as delivered. If you suspect that a theft has been made, you will have to file a police report with USPS and your local police department.
Lost Parcels/Non Delivery: If a package is shipped with full or partial tracking (see lists above) and full insurance (we insure all tracked packages) we will work with the shipping companies to locate the package and/or file a claim. International TRACKED packages are only deemed lost after 45 BUSINESS days. We can not file a claim before this date. In the meantime, if the item is replaceable (not OOAK), we will send out a replacement item at our cost (using the originally purchased shipping method) after the 45 business day wait time. In the case of a lost package/non delivery that is NON TRACKED, it will be at our discretion if we replace. We will only replace in this instance, not refund.
Items Received Damaged: We inspect all of our items 3 times before packaging and shipping to ensure that they are in perfect condition. Every item is carefully packaged in a sturdy gift box and then shipped in a bubble mailer or sturdy mailing box. If you receive your item and it has been damaged in transit, please notify us within 48 hours of receiving the package. Any notification after 48 hours will not be honored. Please provide us with detailed photos of the damaged package as well as the damaged item. If we do not have these photos we can not file a claim with the mail carrier. Please do not throw out the damaged packaging until we have received the photos.
Damaged items WILL NOT be refunded, they will only be replaced. We do not offer refunds for damaged items, no exceptions.
Items Not Arrived by required dates: We can not be held responsible if your item/s are required by a specific date and we are NOT provided this information ahead of time. Unless a rush order has been paid or we have been given ample notice of your "need by date", we will ship all items as per our schedules outlined on our website Faq/Policies page. Items are NOT eligible for returns if they do not arrive in time for your required date if we are not made aware of this date at time of order.
Please note that our shipping/delivery times are based on averages. Excluding the USA, we CAN NOT be held liable if items are held in customs for longer then the average delivery time. We have no control over this. We will also not mark items as "gifts" to avoid customs/duties. This is illegal. Please do not ask us to do this. Although Canada/EU has signed free trade regulations, some items may still have duties on them if not outlined in the trade agreements. Please familiarize yourself with your countries import laws and dutiable items before purchase. We will not be responsible should you owe duties upon receipt.
