  • Unfortunately when we ship internationally some things are out of our control. Because of this you are responsible for any customs duties charged by your home country. Any strange or unexpected fees charged by your country when the package arrives will be paid by you (this almost never happens but we feel it's only fair to warn you!).

- INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE DO THIS -
If your postal carrier does not leave a notice in your mailbox - and you don't ask at your post office - then your country will send your package back to us:

  1. If your package is late: GO TO YOUR POST OFFICE AND ASK IF THEY ARE HOLDING A PACKAGE FOR YOU.
  2. IN A FEW DAYS GO AGAIN. Almost all "lost" packages are just sitting at your post office and they did not leave a notice in your mailbox.
  3. If you do not pick it up: after 3-8 weeks your country will send it back to us.
  4. Then we will refund the cost of the items - not the shipping. We already paid to ship your order and your postal service sent it back to us.
  5. You will need to go on our site and place another order.
  6. Important: if the postal service in your country does not scan your package we cannot track it.

We are very sorry to have to say this - but we cannot control what the post office in your country does with the package we send you.
