    Customs, Duties & Taxes

    When sending your parcel to another country, it may have to pass through customs 

    The destination country inspects goods as they arrive. Sometimes they apply duties and taxes and a small clearance or handling fee. This is dependant on each counties custom thresholds and tax laws. Duties and taxes on shipments are legal requirements that must be settled before your shipment can be delivered. 

    Check your destination country rules and guidelines regarding restrictions 

    Each country has their own rules and guidelines regarding prohibited items and import restrictions. We recommend you check postage regulations and customs informationprior to placing your order. We cannot be held responsible for any delayed delivery or issues due to circumstances beyond our control such as Customs import restrictions, incorrect address given, or any other unforeseen circumstances. In compliance with Australian export regulations, we must declare the exact value of all products ordered and mark them dutiable as "merchandise". The law prohibits us from marking any order as a "gift" even if you are placing an order with the intention of sending a gift to a recipient. It is a criminal offence for us to make a false Customs declaration, and we are unable to misrepresent your goods. 

    See below a summary of the duties and taxes for some popular destinations. You can also find more detailed information at the government websites. Australia Post and Easyship also have useful reference information to calculate potential charges.
