Frequently Asked Questions

How do you ship your parcels?

We ship all of our packages by air working together with our partners FED-EX, TNT, GLS. We ship large volumes of parcels with these companies which ensures us very competitive rates which we pass on to you.

 

What are your transit times?

Since we ship by air and use major shipping companies, our transit times is usually between 3 to 5 business days. There could be delays due to Airlines, Customs Clearence and Public holidays in the destination country which are out of our control. Our main objective is to deliver your parcels as soon as possible.

Why are your prices cheaper even though you are using major carriers?

Our main advantage is the volume of our shipments. Due to this high volume we can negotiate deep discounts with our carriers which gives us the ability to offer lower prices.

 

What is Customs Clearance?

Each package leaving United states needs to pass through the Customs at the destination country. This is where they are checked by the government officials to make sure that the packages do not contain illegal substances and also assessed duties and taxes according to the value of the contents of the packages.

 

Do you clear packages through Customs?

We clear all the packages through customs. When filling out the package contents on our website, please make sure that you declare all the package contents and their values. Wrong or false information may result in delays and penalties.

 

Who pays for Customs duties and taxes?

During Customs Clearence, our shipping partners, Fed-Ex, TNT or GLS pays for the duties and taxes on behalf of the person receiving the package. When they deliver the package, they will collect these fees from the receiver. If the value of the package is high and requires a substantial amount of duties and taxes, our partners may contact the receiver to secure the payment of the duties and taxes. Please make sure that, when sending a package, the receiver is aware of the payment of the duties and taxes and they are willing to pay it. If they need to know how much the duties will be, they can contact their Customs Offices in their country and find out. In a situation where the receiver refuses to pay the duties and the taxes, you will be responsible to pay them.

What if my package gets damaged during shipping?

We take the utmost care of your packages during shipping, but it is possible that they might be damaged during shipping. It is very important to use sturdy packing materials like double walled cardboard boxes and protective fillers to insure the safety of the package contents. In case of a damage, you can file a damage claim by calling our customer service at 1-800-969-4575.
